Located on a large estate with other villas, this Tuscany accommodation is perfect for either a large family or a group event because each bedroom has its own ensuite bathroom. With a private swimming pool and a lovely sun-room annex, this Tuscany rental villa is an ideal place to enjoy peace, quiet, and spectacular view of the country. This villa in Tuscany also serves as an excellent base for exploring the area south of Siena, including Montepulciano, Pienza, and Cortona.
(2000 acres) An 11th century abbey is the focal point of this estate. There are eleven independent, Tuscan luxury villa rentals decorated in a similar minimalist, ar...chitectural style. Each villa is separate and private from other structures, and each has a wonderful view. This residence is surrounded by expansive lawns and fruit trees, as well as an area dedicated to herbs and aromatic plants. To the rear, woods and hills protect the villa from the coldest winds, while in the front the view opens to encompass the whole of the Val d'Orcia. A stand of cypresses stands near the private swimming pool (12m x 6m), which is furnished with sun lounges and other outdoor equipment. This villa is also not far removed from the other villas on the property, making it suitable for larger groups.
