The villa can also be booked together with Villa Monsummano which is located only 100 meters away, for a total capacity of 30 guests.
This is a typical Tuscan villa with an exclusive swimming pool with spectacular views.
This independent villa is the center of a property of over 18 acres of woods and olive groves. It is on the last Western slope of Mount Albano, approx. 250... meters. above sea level.
The living areas have been renovated with a careful eye for details - antique furniture, (some going back as far as the 16th Century.) antique ornaments, paintings, doors, prints and Persian carpets.
On the other hand, the house has every possible modern comfort.
There is a small wood with a relaxation area with armchairs and tables and a view down over the swimming pool. The pool is 8 x 16 mtrs and has a large hydromassage area for 8 people. It is on a natural terrace a few metres below the level of the villa and has a magnificent and almost theatrical view over the valley. It is equipped with tables, chairs, umbrellas, divans, chaise-longues, all in teak. It has a special depuration system which guarantees maximum hygene. It has 0,7% of salt, the same percentage which is found in the human eye. This eliminates the odour and the feeling of chloride on the skin. You can also keep you eyes open while you are underwater.
