Restored 18th century Villa Mimosa, hilltop above old town of Staggia Senese with pool
Enjoy a Tuscan retreat thats both quiet and secluded and convenient to the regions cities at Villa Mimosa. Originally built as a summer home where noble families could escape the heat, the restored six-bedroom property offers an escape from the pressures of modern life without sacrificing modern conveniences. Located just off the highway between Florence and Siena outside the town of Staggia Senese, its in the center of Tuscany without being in the thick of things.
The elegant three-story home is approached through a gated courtyard and surrounded by vineyards and cypress groves. Theres a pool with outdoor shower as well as a charcoal barbecue, outdoor dining area and plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing. Thanks to the recent restoration, the interiors are air-conditioned and have Wi-Fi access. The propertys caretakers live on the premises, making it easy to get assistance if needed.
The living areas of VillaMimosa prove that stately spaces can be comfortable, too. In the sitting rooms, terrazzo floors covered by Persian rugs, paneled walls and original moldings create an elegant envelope thats filled by traditional-style wooden furniture and plush sofas pulled up to a fireplace. The formal dining room continues the theme with cool mint-green walls and antique sideboards. The kitchen, however, is fresh and modern, with white cabinets, black and white tile floors and marble countertops.
Each of the villas six bedrooms has air conditioning but is just as elegantly decorated as the propertys common spaces. There are four bedrooms with queen beds, each of which has its own en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom; one has two twin beds, and the other has two twin beds that can be converted into a queen bed.
VillaMimosa is set on a hilltop outside the ancient town of of Staggia Senese. From the villa, its just over a mile to the towns church, restaurant, tennis court and grocery store. The Castellina Scalo train station is about 2 miles away and the Colle Val dElsa golf course is 5 miles away. Theres a beach 48 miles away, and a ski area 85 miles away.
