This is a spectacular villa, immaculately furnished and presented in a wonderful part of Italy. The owners have imported furniture from around the world to create a unique setting for guests to enjoy their stay. Complete with private pool and beautiful gardens, it's a fabulous setting for a stay in Tuscany. The gardens are extremely well tended and are full of lavender, olive trees and other attractive plants, flowers and shrubs. The location of the property makes it an ideal place from which to explore the local countryside by foot, bike or by car. There are thermal baths nearby at Rapolano Terme offering various beauty treatments and relaxing cures. The property is ideally situated for day visits by car to Siena, Florence, Cortona, Perugia and Arezzo, whilst the vineyards of southern Tuscany and Chianti, and many medieval hilltop towns are within easy driving distance. The local towns of Asciano and Sinalunga offer the closest grocery stores and local amenities. The nearest restaurants are within 2 kms of the villa.
As guests enter the property there is an entrance hall leading off to a living area on the right and large kitchen on the left. This area has an open plan feel to it. The kitchen is superbly equipped with everything guests could possibly need and want during their stay. Guests have the use of 2 fridge / freezers (one is an American style fridge freezer) as well as 2 dishwashers, a large oven with 5 ring gas stove and double sink. An attractive sideboard houses a massive collection of plates, glasses and crockery. A stone archway leads to an adjacent dining room, the perfect place to enjoy a meal indoors. The ground floor living area is elegantly and comfortably furnished with sofas and chairs.
There is also a single bedroom / study area on this floor and a further double bedroom. The single bedroom has both a daybed and desk, perfect for a spot of quiet reading or study. Large glass doors leading to the terrace at the front of the property lets light flood into the room. An adjacent bathroom, decorated with green mosaic tiles, can be for the exclusive use of this room or can be used as a downstairs toilet for the other guests. The double bedroom leads off the living area and has an arched doorway leading out to a private terrace equipped with metal table and chairs. An ensuite bathroom has a shower, sink and toilet.
Travertine stairs lead to the first floor of the property. On this floor, there is another living area with comfortable seating arranged around a traditional open fireplace. There are also two further bedrooms on this floor, one of which is a master suite with four poster bed, his and her wardrobes and bedside tables. The adjoining bathroom feels luxurious with roll top bath and separate shower. The other bedroom is also beautifully furnished with elegant fixtures and fittings and also benefits from a large walk in wardrobe area, perfect for storing your clothes during your stay. Again, this room has a bathroom next door with massive shower.
A second flight of stairs leads from the living area to the top mezzanine floor of the building. Up here, there is an attic room with two single beds, ideal for children or teenagers who will enjoy being separate from the rest of the household! It is furnished in shades of red and blue and has another desk looking out towards the wonderful views over the Tuscan countryside.
Outside there are a choice of terraces from which to enjoy an aperitif or al fresco dining. One is superbly positioned to watch the sunset each evening. A charcoal BBQ is provided for your use. There is also a swimming pool (9 x 5 metres, 80cm - 1.2 metres deep) with spectacular views which is lit at night. The swimming pool can be heated if guests wish. Heating is charged according to usage and is monitored on a separate meter. However, we recommend that guests decide whether they want pool heating on arrival as we frequently find it just isn't necessary. A separate bathroom near the pool has both a shower and toilet, so guests don't have the inconvenience of needing to go inside the property.
The garden also houses a separate washroom with both washing machine and tumble dryer. Clothes airers are also provided as your clothes will dry quickly in the sunshine....Read more
