About the Property

Ideally Located, Elegant 6 Bedroom 6 Bath Country House Sleeps 12 Comfortably

Situated midway between Rome and Florence on one of the fabled hills of Tuscany, Villa Serena delights its guests with splendid panoramic views over the valley below. A gracious 6 bedroom 6 bath home with large spacious rooms, the villa provides ample space and privacy for up to 12 guests comfortably. Recently remodeled while maintaining its charm and authenticity, the living areas boast terra cotta floors and oriental rugs, gracious brick and stone archways and traditional wood-beamed ceilings throughout. One of the bedrooms and baths is located on the ground floor providing a comfortable setting for those who may have trouble climbing stairs. The entire first level of the home is free of stairs. The remaining 5 bedrooms and baths are located off of a central foyer on the second level of the villa. Each bedroom has a private ensuite bath for added privacy and convenience. Three of the bedrooms have Italian king beds, two have two twin beds, and one can be either two twins or one king as you prefer, providing added flexibility for larger groups.


The ground floor has an open floor plan with a large living room anchored by a handsome stone and copper fireplace and larger TV (SAT). There are also two sitting areas allowing all guests space to spread out. The dining table expands to seat 12 comfortably and the adjacent buffet has service for at least twelve. The large kitchen has a double sink, large range, oven, microwave, dishwasher and full size refrigerator. There is also a covered pergola steps from the kitchen where you can dine outside under the stars while taking in the spectacular views of the surrounding countryside.

In keeping with the quality accommodations, the villa has a gorgeous swimming pool surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs set just a few steps from the home and positioned to get full sun through late afternoon. It also affords magnificent views of the surrounding countryside and amazing sunset views.

The estate is ideally located just 20 – 25 minutes southwest of Chiusi where you will find both the entrance to the A1 Autostrada (main highway from Rome to Florence) as well as the train station for travel to Rome, Florence and Siena. All are reachable in 45 minutes to an hour and 15 minutes. And the charming small village of San Casciano dei Bagni can be reached in 5-10 minutes by car or approximately 30 minutes by foot. There, you can find groceries, several highly regarded restaurants as well as a world class thermal spa.

The rental rate includes the private use of the villa for your group, cleaning two mornings during your stay in Middle or High Season (more frequent cleaning is available at an extra cost), pool towels and complimentary laundry facilities. We would also be delighted to suggest local itineraries, organize a winetasting or a special meal for your group and/or arrange a driver for a day tour of the area or for pickup/drop off at any of the airports in the area (ie Rome, Florence or Perugia). We want to make this a vacation to remember for a lifetime!!
