Villa Loren is a beautifully restored stone country house situated on a large farming estate with wonderful views of rolling Tuscan hills for miles around. This totally unspoilt panorama is particularly enjoyed from the garden surrounding the villa and the perfectly placed private swimming pool. In the heart of Southern Tuscany it's a perfect location from which to explore this lovely area yet enjoy genuine peace and tranquillity.
Villa Loren has been recently restored with great care and attention retaining its original characteristics such as terracotta floors and beamed ceilings and is very nicely furnished in typical Tuscan country style. The house, which is on two floors, has been cleverly divided into two adjoining apartments connected via an internal door in the living rooms, so perfect for those wishing to share a private detached villa and pool yet retain some privacy.
Each apartment has a ground floor consisting of a fully equipped kitchen, which opens directly onto the villa's covered terrace running the length of the house and furnished with table and chairs for dining al fresco whilst enjoying the charming view of the pool and garden. Each also has a separate living room with fireplace, settee and satellite television, a bedroom and shower room. A wooden staircase leads from each apartment's living room to the first floor where there is a large bathroom with hydro massage tub, a double bedroom, and a twin bedroom per apartment. The twin bedrooms open onto a little covered loggia balcony and external steps leading to the garden.
Villa Lorena's covered terrace faces the large garden, where there is a barbecue and an inviting swimming pool (12m x 6m), the perfect spot to relax whilst enjoying real peace and tranquillity. The surrounding countryside is the owners farmland, genuinely beautiful panoramas of swaying cornfields, and vineyards, with nothing to disturb the peace except the comforting chug of a faraway tractor. There are many country walks to be enjoyed and horse riding is available nearby.
When you can tear yourself away, there is plenty to see in the area. Within walking distance (500m approx) is a tiny hilltop hamlet with local shops, bar and restaurants, and a larger selection are available at San Casciano dei Bagni also well known for its natural thermal spas. Lazily explore unspoilt little towns close by and Southern Tuscany's more famous treasures such as Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza and Siena are all within easy driving distance. Further south Orvieto, and Lake Bolsena are well worth a visit and even Rome is only one and a half hours' away.
