Gambassi Terme villa description

This villa is a great choice for a large group to enjoy the peace and quiet of a large estate (with walking trails) as well as proximity to day trips to San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena, and Florence. There is also the possibility of hiring a cook for your evening dinners or special celebrations.
(150 hectares) This property dates back to 1900, when it was a simple farming estate. A famous aviator purchased the property and built three unique hunting lodges that still accompany the villa today. 20 years later, the Finzi-Contini family of Florence purchased the property. They lived there until 1954, when the current owners took it over. The property features a combination of Tuscan stone, cotto bricks, and rolling English lawns. Thanks to its location 500 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, soft breezes provide a welcome respite from the summer sun. The hunting lodges have been converted into residences—Villa Cacciatore, and a small woodsman's cottage, Casetta Ombra. Each of the structures has its own history and distinct identity. They offer fabulous views, mature oak woods, and access to a vast nature reserve with trails. There is a private pool (5 x 8m), open from mid April to mid October for the Villa Cacciatore and a shared above-ground pool for the Casetta. The houses are very separate and private from the other.
(300 m2/3,229 ft2) Ground Floor: There are three entrances to the villa. One entrance leads through the loggia, between two ivy-covered columns, and through a glass door into the main living area. Another entrance is via the terrace, where a glass door leads directly into the kitchen. The third entrance is through the garden, where an original terracotta staircase leads directly to the upstairs bedrooms. Entering from the loggia, there is a living area with a fireplace and terracotta floors. The ground floor also has a room furnished with a TV and antique sofas. The adjacent sitting area has a large sofa, a baby grand piano, and windows overlooking the garden. There is a dining room with marble floors and a large wooden table that seats eighteen people. A wooden door leads into the fully equipped kitchen, which has two refrigerators. There is also a WC with a washing machine. A hallway with a staircase leads to the first floor. First Floor: A long hallway connects all five bedrooms of the first floor: Giglio, Ginestra, Rosa, Geranio, and Margherita. Giglio has a queen-size bed (160 cm), antique furniture, and an en suite bathroom (with shower). Ginestra has a queen-size bed (160 cm) and a private terrace. Rosa has a queen-size bed (160 cm) and access to the same private terrace. Ginestra and Rosa share an en suite bathroom (with shower), which is situated in a connecting antechamber. Geranio and Margherita each have two twin-beds. They share an en suite bathroom (with tub), which is also situated in a connecting antechamber. The first floor has wood flooring. At the end of the hallway, a staircase leads to the second floor. Second Floor: There are four bedrooms: Girasole, Ciclamino, Iris, and Papavero. Girasole has a queen-size bed (160 cm), antique furniture, and an en suite bathroom (with shower). Ciclamino has a queen-size bed (160 cm) and an ensuite bathroom (with shower). Iris has a queen-size bed (160 cm), while Papavero has a queen-size bed and is most suitable for children.
