Whether you’re relaxing with a book and a glass of wine in the lovely garden, exploring the olive groves, or taking a dip in the private pool, this villa will offer you and your guests a multitude of choices for enjoying your stay in Tuscany. Set on top of a hill overlooking the countryside, you can gaze out on the beautiful Tuscan landscape from this villa’s covered portico and patio. It won’t be long, however, until the comfortable, tasteful interiors beckon you back inside to enjoy a fire under the wood beamed ceilings while dinner cooks in the oven. This classic villa is great for a family or a group of friends.
