Tuscany Luxury Villa - Tenuta Abbazia - Casa la Volpe
Description from the manager
Although situated on a large estate with other luxury villa rentals, this Tuscany luxury villa is unique for its private setting and beautiful views. The estate's vast private land borders a National Park so it is not uncommon to spy deer, pheasants, and other wild game. Beautifully landscaped with native flora, the grounds of this luxury villa rental in Tuscany include a lovely swimming pool surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. It is an ideal spot to enjoy peace, quiet, and spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. This is a great Tuscany luxury accommodation for a large group or family because each beautifully furnished bedroom has its own large ensuite bathroom. There are trails and dirt roads on the estate for jogging or walking. Conveniently located in Southern Tuscany, it is possible to take day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and Cortona, as well as destinations in Umbria, such as Perugia, Orvieto, and Todi. You can arrange to have a cook prepare meals in your own home, or drive 8 minutes into the nearby town for dinner.
(2000 acres) An 11th century abbey is the focal point of this estate. There are eleven independent, Tuscan luxury villa rentals decorated in a similar minimalist, architectural style. Each villa is separate and private from other structures, and each has a wonderful view. Casa La Volpe is a beautifully restored 16th century stone farmhouse located at the foot of the Cetona Mountain. There are views of the Abbey and the house is surrounded by trees and gardens. There is a private swimming pool (6m x 12m) with a changing room, bathroom with shower, and ping-pong table next to the house. There is a large tree providing shade in the pool area.

This is an excellent area to branch out and visit numerous nearby villages many of which provide excellent wine tasting, shopping and dining venues. The daily housekeeping was nice and viewing the many mares with their newborn foals a delight. The staff was helpful.
We were drawn to this property because my sister required a suitable facility for her scooter to get around. This property definitely is not for the physically challenged in the areas of the entrance or the bathroom. The estate is vast and beautiful in scope and vision but lacking in an outdoor dining area.
