Villa Danilo has been restored with the living area on the upper floor, this allows the two large terraces to be used as an integral part of the villa. The view from the upper floor andamp the terraces are of the picturesque Tuscan countryside and the river Ombrone which runs down the back of the villa. The sleeping areas on the lower level are naturally cool andamp airy. The terracotta floors and natural light combine beautifully with the original mill stones to provide a tranquil and peaceful environment. andnbspIt is a quiet, secluded and private property which is 2km from the medieval Tuscan village of Civitella Marittima. The property dates back to 976AD and comprises a luxury 3 double bedroom Tuscan house with studio and 1.5ha (almost 3.5 acres) of landscaped land. The master bedroom is an impressive and is dissected by a large archway, many of the original mill alcoves are still intact and the tradition wooden beamed and tiled ceiling gives this room a natural warmth and charm. Large double doors lead into the garden and have large windows allowing natural light into the bedroom. There are other two windows that look straight out onto the river andamp the garden bridge over the mill stream. There is a built-in Sony home theatre unit wired into the room which offers TV, DVD, CD and Tuner surround sound entertainment. andnbspFinally there is a small fireplace in the corner of the room to add to the romantic atomosphere. The second bedroom is massive and consists of three single beds (two bunk beds) plus a double bed. There is also a generic entertainment space with a sofa bed which can comfortably sleep two small children or one adult. The 4th corner has been recreated to represent a "boat play area" and here the children use the computer, listen to music, read, play and watch TV, Video`s andamp DVD`s.

The 800m approach road has recently been professionally graded and compacted with a proper drainage system.andnbsp NOTE: CAR IS A MUST. The final 800 mt drive to villa is along a bumpy and unmade farm track. In our experience rental car companies are very quick to make claims for any minor scratch so we highly recommend that guests hiring car includes CDW (Collision Damage Waiver) in the policy to avoid this possibility. The famous cities of Siena, Monteriggioni and San Gimignano are approximately a 40 minute drive with Florence and Arezzo approx 1 hour away. Pisa and Rome Fiumicino Airports are 1 hour 45 minutes.andnbsp
