Ambra 4 is a pretty apartment part of a restored Tuscan hamlet immersed in the countryside. The apartment has its own terrace area with gazebo in the courtyard below and a few steps away in the grounds is the estates large swimming pool with sun terrace and gardens below and a view of the wooded hills beyond.
The Ambra estate consists of a large 18th Century farmhouse and other restored annexes surrounding a main courtyard, now carefully restored to form ten apartments and seven bedrooms. There are lovely oak woods surrounding the estate and within the grounds are gardens with lawns, a little childrens play area and the swimming pool. There is a also communal covered barbeque area and breakfast is served on request in the estates dining room.
Ambra 4, on the first floor of the main farmhouse, is simply furnished in traditional Tuscan style retaining terracotta floors and wooden beamed ceilings. External steps finishing in a little loggia lead to the apartments entrance and directly into the living room which is furnished with dining table and chairs, fireplace, settee (which converts to a bed on request to accommodate up to 2 extra persons), television (digital) and kitchen area. Off the living room there are two twin bedroom and a double bedroom and two bathrooms, one with shower one with bath. A wooden staircase leads to a fourth bedroom with ensuite shower room. This characteristic bedroom was originally the pigeon loft and has windows overlooking the estate. In the courtyard below, the apartment has its own terrace area with gazebo and table and chairs perfect for relaxing or dining al fresco.
A few steps away in the grounds is the estates large swimming pool (17m x 7m) which has a shallower corner for children. Above the pool is a sun terrace with sun loungers and umbrellas below a garden area with lawns and mature trees. There is parking on the estate, an internet point on site and also a laundry room with communal washing machine for guests use.
The apartment is well located for exploring the area, the road at the bottom of the hill leads to the town of Ambra just 3km away and has a supermarket, shops and good selection of amenities. The nearest restaurant is just 1km away and there are plenty more within easy driving distance. Ambra estate is strategically placed between the art cities of Siena and Arezzo, and on the edge of the famous Chianti region so these wonderful sights and many other of Tuscanys treasures are easily reached by car.
