Although situated on a large estate with other villas, this unique Tuscany villa rental has a private setting and beautiful views. The estate's vast private land borders a National Park so it is not uncommon to spy deer, pheasants, and other wild game. Beautifully landscaped with native flora, this Tuscany farmhouse villa's private grounds include a lovely swimming pool surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. It is an ideal spot to enjoy peace, quiet, and spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. This is a great farmhouse holiday in Tuscany for a large group or family because each beautifully furnished bedroom has its own large ensuite ba...throom. There are trails and dirt roads on the estate for jogging or walking. Conveniently located in Southern Tuscany, it is possible to take day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and Cortona, as well as destinations in Umbria, such as Perugia, Orvieto, and Todi. You can arrange to have a cook prepare meals in your own home, or drive 8 minutes into the nearby town for dinner.
(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, architectural style. Each villa is separate and private from other structures, and each has a wonderful view. Casa Le Quaglie was restored in 2000. This farmhouse dates back to the 15th and 16th centuries. It is accessed by 6 km of a dirt and gravel road. Therefore, it enjoys seclusion and privacy. The house is surrounded by country fields.

A delightful property! The views are spectacular. Wonderful design and art in the house. Really, really nice! The location is fabulous. If someone has an eye for design and art they will love this house.
Everything, except for the road leading to the property! Having 7 bedrooms and 7 baths, two living rooms - the whole way the place is outfitted - was really wonderful. Wonderful towels and sheets; loved the lighting. The dishes are very special.
The dirt road leading to the property - too many rocks! It definitely needs to be improved.
There is a great little castle in Radicofani, which is a wonderful town. You can see the castle from the house. Orvieto is a wonderful day trip - best by the back roads. The whole area is full of wonderful places to visit.

The farmhouse and spectacular views and extra fresh air were memorable. We did enjoy a wonderful meal of lamb seasoned with rosemary fresh off the rosemary bushes outside the villa door the first night. Very accomodating host at Abbey as well.
