This delightful villa has been thoughtfully renovated to include all of the essentials for a comfortable sojourn in the Tuscan Countryside. From it's beautifully updated tile baths (showers) and full kitchen including dishwasher and washing machine, to all of the little touches that make a house a home, you will feel like you are staying with long lost family. Homemade jam and local honey await your arrival along with a bottle of wine and olive oil produced from the fields surrounding the villa - our way of saying bienvenuto - welcome to our little slice of paradise.
Located down a short private road in an area of Tuscany known for private country homes and expansive views of pastoral countryside dotted with stone houses, woods, vineyards and farm fields, the villa is ideal for a small group or family traveling together.There are three bedrooms and two baths all on a single level. One bedroom has a queen bed and the other two can be either 2 single beds or 1 king bed as you prefer. One bedroom has an en-suite bath and the other two share a hall bath, both with showers. The floors have a warm terracotta patina and the ceilings are hand carved wood-beams. A lovely combination of both old and new throughout.
However, the most breathtaking part of the villa is the view. From the lovely covered terrace adjacent to the entrance to the villa replete with dining table for 6, the fabled Tuscan landscape rolls on for miles and miles disrupted only by an occasional stone home in the distance. In the evening, you can enjoy the view and be treated to the intoxicating scent of lavender and rosemary as you sip a glass of wine or prosecco.
Down a short set of hand carved wooden steps lined with lavender and rosemary on both sides that seem like they have been there for centuries, lies a gorgeous private swimming pool completely surrounded by olive trees and a private vineyard. The view of the countryside from here is extraordinary. And when you tire of hanging around the house (if that is ever possible), you can head out for day trips to places like Florence, Rome, Siena, Assisi, Cortona, Orvieto, Perugia, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Chianti all within an hour's drive from the villa. Or if you prefer, the fast train between Rome and Florence stops in Chiusi just 15 minutes from the villa. There is free parking nearby and you can travel comfortably to Rome, Florence, Siena or cities farther afield. There are several rental car companies within walking distance of the train station so you can also arrive by train quite easily. And lastly, just 5 minutes by car from the villa lies one of the loveliest small villages in Tuscany. With a vibrant central piazza lined with small shops and several outstanding restaurants, you won't have to travel far to eat well and experience the warm communal nature of the Tuscan people.
We strive to make your stay with us a most memorable one and to that end we are happy to help you with your planning and itineraries as well as organize wine tastings, guided tours of the Etruscan tombs nearby, a special meal prepared at the villa or any number of other activities. Please contact us for further information.
Note: Beginning in 2019 there is a local tax of E1.00 per person per day that must be paid in cash upon arrival.
We look forward to seeing you in Tuscany!
