Villa Serena is an enchanting Tuscan farmhouse perched on a hilltop enjoying fabulous views of the Tuscan countryside. The villa is luxuriously furnished and surrounded by immaculately kept gardens and terraces. There is a large private swimming pool with a stunning panorama of the wooded hills beyond.
Villa Serena which dates back to the 17th Century has been carefully restored with immaculate attention to detail, with the original beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and stone walls all being retained. No expense has been spared in renovating the villa, and each room has its own personalit...y, all being decorated in a unique manner with pastel coloured walls, soft lights, family heirlooms and interesting artefacts collected patiently by the owners.
The living areas on the ground floor of the villa are extremely inviting and the bedrooms on the first floor of the house are very comfortable, being furnished in typical Tuscan style with many antique pieces. In fact the local town of Anghiari is famous its fine antique furniture restorers. The main suite, which has its private entrance from the garden is exceptionally special, with a romantic gallery bedroom and lounge area with fireplace.
The thoughtful owners who live in the farmhouse nearby, have added the modern comforts of Wi Fi internet connection, minibars and satellite television in all the bedrooms, and although they will not disturb your privacy, they are happy to organise a cook on request, who can prepare delicious dishes using the local fresh produce which is also available for purchase.
The house is surrounded by terraces and gardens which are furnished with table and chairs and there is a large barbecue, perfect for dining al fresco whilst enjoying the unspoilt view of the countryside. Steps lead to the gorgeous swimming pool (8m x 16m), situated below the house which enjoys the same lovely view and is the perfect spot the relax, take a swim and enjoy the undisturbed peace and tranquillity.
Reached by a winding road through the woods and immersed in the countryside, Villa Serena is still well located to explore both Tuscany and Umbria. Arezzo, famous for its Piero della Francesca frescoes in the cathedral is only 20km away, and also has good train connections to Florence and Rome, whereas Cortona, Siena, and Lake Trasimeno are all within an hours drive.
