Description

This is a spectacular villa, immaculately furnished and presented in a wonderful part of Italy. The owners have imported furniture from around the world to create a unique setting for guests to enjoy their stay. Complete with private pool and beautiful gardens, it's a fabulous setting for a stay in Tuscany.

As guests enter the property there is an entrance hall leading off to a living area on the right and large kitchen on the left. This area has an open plan feel to it. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything guests could possibly need and want during their stay. Guests have the use of 2 fridge / freezers as well as 2 dishwashers, a large oven with 5 ring gas stove and double sink. An attractive sideboard houses a massive collection of plates, glasses and crockery. A stone archway leads to an adjacent dining room, the perfect place to enjoy a meal indoors. The ground floor living area is elegantly and comfortably furnished with sofas and chairs.

There is also a single bedroom / study area on this floor and a further double bedroom. The single bedroom has both a daybed and desk, perfect for a spot of quiet reading or study. Large glass doors leading to the terrace at the front of the property lets light flood into the room. An adjacent bathroom, decorated with green mosaic tiles, can be for the exclusive use of this room or can be used as a downstairs toilet for the other guests. The double bedroom leads off the living area and has an arched doorway leading out to a private terrace equipped with metal table and chairs. An ensuite bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet.

Travertine stairs lead to the first floor of the property. On this floor, there is another living area with comfortable seating arranged around a traditional open fireplace. There are also two further bedrooms on this floor, one of which is a master suite with four poster bed, his and her wardrobes and bedside tables. The adjoining bathroom feels luxurious with roll top bath and separate shower. The other bedroom is also beautifully furnished with elegant fixtures and fittings and also benefits from a large walk in wardrobe area, perfect for storing your clothes during your stay. Again, this room has a bathroom next door with massive shower.

A second flight of stairs leads from the living area to the top mezzanine floor of the building. Up here, there is an attic room with two single beds, ideal for children or teenagers who will enjoy being separate from the rest of the household! It is furnished in shades of red and blue and has another desk looking out towards the wonderful views over the Tuscan countryside.

Outside there are a choice of terraces and decking area from which to enjoy an aperitif or al fresco dining. One is superbly positioned to watch the sunset each evening. A charcoal BBQ is provided for your use. There is also a swimming pool (9 x 5 metres, 80cm - 1.2 metres deep) with spectacular views which is lit at night. The swimming pool can be heated if guests wish. Heating is charged according to usage and is monitored on a separate meter. However, we recommend that guests decide whether they want pool heating on arrival as we frequently find it just isn't necessary. A separate bathroom near the pool has both a shower and toilet, so guests don't have the inconvenience of needing to go inside the property.

The gardens are extremely well tended and are full of lavender, olive trees and other attractive plants, flowers and shrubs. The location of the property makes it an ideal place from which to explore the local countryside by foot, bike or by car. There are thermal baths nearby at Rapolano Terme offering various beauty treatments and relaxing cures. The property is ideally situated for day visits by car to Siena, Florence, Cortona, Perugia and Arezzo, whilst the vineyards of southern Tuscany and Chianti, and many medieval hilltop towns are within easy driving distance. The local towns of Asciano and Sinalunga offer the closest grocery stores and local amenities. The nearest restaurants are within 2 kms of the villa.

The garden also houses a separate washroom with both washing machine and tumble dryer. Clothes airers are also provided as your clothes will dry quickly in the sunshine.

We had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed every minute - the property more than met expectations...

We very much enjoyed our stay in the villa... One comment I would make is that it would have been useful to have a more comprehensive folder with local information....it would also be good to have basics provided for the villa such as washing up liquid, dishwasher tablets, washing powder and bin liners as well as basic sugar and salt. Personally I would have been happy to pay a little more and not have to buy such things... The lady who did the cleaning was good and the villa was spotless when we arrived. Basically we had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed every minute - the property more than met expectations.We hope to be in touch to book another villa next year.

Incredible location, beautiful property, we enjoyed every minute of our stay...

The house is perched on a hill and offers the same panorama as typical Tuscany's postcards with golden hills, forests, olive and cypress trees, old castle in the distant, etc. It is super-quiet and the only sounds at night are those of cheeps and owls. Every morning we woke up with the sounds of birds & crickets. The house itself sleeps comfortably 9 people, it is an old typical Tuscany farm house renovated with lots of taste using quality material like natural stones, etc. Old and modern features are very successfully blended. Both the garden and the pool are perfectly kept and well equipped (long chairs, umbrellas, big outside table, BBQ, etc). Visiting around from the property is easy (provided you have a car!) and we frequently went to Siena and other great villages around. The first restaurant is 5 min. away and there are plenty of quality choices within 10-15 minutes. This review might sounds over-enthusiastic but I can't find anything that would prevent us from returning soon.
