About the Property

Chateau / Country House, 4 Bedrooms, 4 Baths, (Sleeps 9-14)

Fully restored 4 en-suite bedroom historic 18C farmhouse (sleeps 9 plus 2 in cots and 1 in travel cot) and a large private pool. The property has been subjected to the highest, no expense spared restoration to the most exacting standards. Set in the Tuscan hills, in a protected area of outstanding natural beauty, overlooking the fabulous Lake.

The Farmhouse (Casa Mandorlo) sleeps up to 9, plus 2 cribs for babies and one cot for child up to 18 months.

In addition we have a separate apartment(Casa Susinetto) which sleeps 2 plus a cot for a child up to 18 months, and a 1 bed house (Casa Olivetto) which sleeps 2 adults
These are both available as additional accommodation to CasaMandorlo between May and September, or can be booked separately from Sept 15 - Dec 15 and March 15 - May 1 on a minimum 3 nights stay basis

Set in large, fully fenced secure grounds in the hills of eastern Tuscany, overlooking the beautiful Lake Montedoglio, the location is truly breathtaking and unspoilt.
Every ceiling is beamed and has the original hand-made panelled tiles. There are cut stone door and window surrounds throughout, and all the original terracotta floor tiles have been re-laid. All the rooms have high ceilings and the generously sized double bedrooms each have en-suite bathrooms. The house has it's own 12 x 6 meter pool. The farmhouse is over 250 square meters or 2690 square feet.
