  • You have access to a separate structure containing a high-tech gym with 7 specialized pieces of equipment, a sauna, a Jacuzzi, and a Turkish bath.
  • The villa has a truly prime location with all the interesting tourist villages and Tuscan attractions a short drive away.

What you should know…

  • Central heating is payable on consumption together with firewood.
  • A car is required to access the villa.

This beautifully restored, 14th century farmhouse sits on a farming estate on a hilltop and has magnificent views over the soft hills of the Arbia river valley. The owners have personally directed the restoration of the house and produced an impeccably tasteful and modern home that will enchant all visitors.

The grounds surrounding the house are fenced in to afford maximum privacy. Guests can enjoy a dip in the swimming pool, relax in the garden and dine outside on the terrace in complete peace and tranquillity.

Interior & Grounds

Main Building
Ground Floor
The entrance hall opens out into a spacious living/dining room stretching the length of the building and divided into sections by traditional brick arches. There is a fireplace in the central section and satellite TV with DVD and panoramic glass doors at one end of the living room lead outside. The formal dining area is located at the other end of the living room and glass doors here open out onto a covered, furnished terrace.

The dining area opens into the large, well-equipped kitchen with ample work surfaces, a restaurant-size gas range with steak grill, oven, fridge with freezer and dishwasher. An open brick arch in the kitchen creates a delightful informal dining area on one side. And more doors lead you outside, making this whole area light and airy.

Also on the ground floor is a laundry room that includes a washing machine, clothes dryer and ironing facilities and a bathroom with washbasin and WC.

First Floor
On the first floor there are two double bedrooms, one with an ensuite bathroom and three twin bedrooms. There are two more large bathrooms with bathtubs and shower facilities and a smaller bathroom with washbasin, WC and shower.

The owner has personally directed the restoration of the house and her impeccable taste in colors and fabrics is seen throughout. The building feels light and airy while still maintaining the traditional building with beamed ceilings, brickwork and the cotto floors. All the tiles in the the kitchen and bathrooms are decorated by hand.

Outdoor Space
The garden surrounding the house is perfect for outdoor living. There is a furnished terrace for al fresco dining, a spacious, meticulously well-kept lawn and a private 5 x 12 m swimming pool. The grounds and swimmingpool are maintained by a gardener who lives in a separate farmhouse on the estate property and his wife provides maid service 3 hours per day, 5 days per week. Both are included in the price.
