4 bedroom Tuscan villa
A cypress lined driveway leads to the property. Guests enter the villa via a large entrance hall. Doors then lead to a large living area. This is a lovely, welcoming room, decorated in an Oriental style with comfortable sofas arranged around a central fireplace and additional seating laid out to the sides of the room for those who prefer a quieter spot to relax in. There is a table, perfect to play a game of cards. There is also a piano which guests are welcome to use. The furnishings are elegant and include antique pieces that have been in the family for generations.
Also on the ground floor is a brand new kitchen, refurbished in 2014. This is well equipped with dishwasher, oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, fridge freezer and gas hob. A dining room was also refurbished in 2014 and has a table seating up to 12 guests. Finally, there is a small bedroom on this floor with single bed along with a bathroom with basin and toilet.
Upstairs the property has four double bedrooms, all with ensuite bathrooms. Three out of four of the bathrooms have shower, bidet, toilet and sink whilst the last bathroom has a bath with overhead shower. Two out of the four bedrooms also have a small TV with a basic list of satellite channels. The master bedroom has a large window with steps leading up to the terrace overlooking the Italian garden. This suite also has its own small separate kitchenette with electric hob, sink, fridge and cooking facilities.
Outside, there is a garden with raised seating area with table, chairs and BBQ, ideal for al fresco dining. The garden is extensive with sixteen hectares given over to woodland suitable for walks, picnics and mushroom picking!
