This beautiful, perfectly traditional home in the heart of the Tuscan countryside offers the ideal holiday retreat, with an elegant private pool, charming interiors and even a private sauna!

As you approach the 700-acre estate, admire the rolling hills of woodland and Tuscan landscapes around you. Entering the main house, you are greeted by the utterly homely, comfortable living room with cosy seating, an open fireplace and traditional dresser. Alongside this, the dining room offers a traditional experience below the lovely chandelier and beamed ceiling, providing a feeling of authenticity for every meal. The traditionally styled kitchen is in fact thoroughly modern in functionality, with a huge oven, two sinks, all the latest mod cons as well as a beautiful breakfast table in the centre.

Upstairs there are five double bedrooms, each one with their own shower room and one with extra twin beds on a mezzanine level. The furnishings in each of the rooms is traditional, elegant and complemented by tasteful décor.

For larger groups, the annexe provides further accommodation space. On the ground floor, you will find a living area with a sofa-bed, fireplace and small kitchenette with a breakfast table whilst the first floor houses a twin and a double bedroom.

The annexe also offers a spa area with sauna and a large tub for cooling down afterwards, perfect for a day of relaxation whatever the weather.

Enjoy lazy summer days by the fabulous outdoor pool at one end of the lawn and spend time with family or friends under the spacious covered terrace, perfect for relaxing on warm evenings, whether dining al-fresco or simply enjoying a glass of local wine with good conversation. A barbecue is also available for your exclusive use.

A thriving forest lies to one side of the home, while the garden surrounds it on either side, and a winding country lane passes by. You will find a handful of restaurants and cafe-bars within a short distance, the shopping malls of Florence are also a few minutes away whilst the world-famous city itself is just within a 30-minute drive!

Nestled in the sensational Tuscany countryside with forests and beautiful landscapes, the calm and tranquil surroundings make it hard to believe that the beautiful city of Florence is just 30km away!

Indeed, while you will feel at one with the natural world, there is a handful of bars, restaurants and a supermarket within a short distance while the shopping outlets of The Mall, the Fashion Valley, Trussardi, Prada, D & G, Diesel, Monclair and Groove and more are also very close by, just 3km in the car – a dream for any fashionista!

While the villa is perfectly located to visit Florence, Siena (63km), another fine art city and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is just a little further afield, making it ideal for a day trip!

Arezzo (55km) is another beautiful city for art-lovers and historians alike and reached by car in well under an hour. Of course you can also spend so much time exploring idyllic villages and historic towns of the Chianti hills or Casentino valley where there are so many enchanting places to visit.
The location is also perfect for wine tasting, as a world-famous wine (and olive oil!) producing region, celebrated by Verdi, Michelangelo and many others.

Furthermore, a superb golf course, Circolo Golf dell'Ugolino, can be reached in around 30 minutes and there is an excellent horse-riding centre just a 10-minute drive away. Keen walkers can follow a number of well-marked trails through the surrounding countryside, straight from the estate and there are lots of cycling and mountain bike opportunities across the region.

And for more outdoor pursuits, you’re very near to the Pratomagno mountain range, and the 300-acre natural park near Reggello, both perfect for a little physical activity and enjoying nature.
