PRIVATE STRUCTURE. La Brencia is a traditional Tuscan farmhouse whose origins date back to Renaissance times. It was acquired and completely restored by the present owners who have remodelled the interior layout while preserving the original structure. The result is a charming country house of large, well-lit rooms, with fine Tuscan terracotta floors in the living area and traditional wooden-beamed ceilings, furnished simply yet elegantly, to create a luxurious yet comfortable home, provided with all the features to allow guests to enjoy a relaxing and, at the same time, exciting holiday. Right outside the cosy interior is a luxuriant garden with stunning views over the hills of the Val di Chiana and Mount Cetona. The house is immersed in the lush Tuscan countryside, just a few kilometers from the medieval town of Cetona and the spas of San Casciano dei Bagni and Chianciano Terme. Its excellent geographical position, well connected to the principal road links, is a great advantage for organizing day trips to the many villages of great historical and artistic interest in the surrounding area and for visiting the major art cities of Tuscany and Umbria, like Siena, Florence, Perugia, Orvieto and many others.
Additional amenities include: iron and ironing board, jacuzzi (on request), slicer, fans, american fridge with ice maker, american fridge, wi-fi internet fast connection, mixer, babycot, mosquito screens, american coffee machine, hairdryer, moka, fryer, TV with digital channels and sky decoder in all bedrooms of the main house, hydromassage shower with turkish bath.
Interior The main house has two floors. The entrance to the ground floor opens on to the living area comprised of a large living room with satellite TV, fireplace and dining area, and a fully equipped kitchen, both rooms being connected to the outside through French windows. A toilet and laundry room complete this floor. From the living area a marble staircase leads up to the sleeping area on the first floor with three double bedrooms with ensuite bathrooms, two with shower and one with tub, a further double bedroom with direct access to the outside via a staircase and, finally, a bathroom with hydromassage shower and Turkish bath. ANNEX. About 10 meters from the main house is the annex, consisting of a sitting room with dining room and open plan kitchen, a double bedroom, a twin bedroom and two bathrooms with shower.
Park The house is set in a property that covers approximately 3,5 hectares, including the wooded area. The fenced-in park around the property covers an area of about 8000 sq mt with assorted vegetation ranging from shrubs to tall trees such as oaks, pines, holm oaks and cypress trees to a small olive grove which frames one side of the pool. The well-kept garden is planted with lawn and, along the paths leading to the various furnished areas, numerous types of aromatic herbs have been planted to form a charming backdrop of colour and distinctive aromas. Just outside the French windows of the kitchen and living room, right in front of the pool area, is a spacious portico used as an outdoor dining area furnished with tables, chairs and comfortable sofas. A second French window, on one side of the house, leads from the kitchen to a cosy pergola, covered with verdant and fragrant wisteria, also furnished with table, chairs and armchairs â€“ the ideal spot for open air meals. And finally, all around the park is a thick wooded area with walking trails that lead directly from the property; just outside the gate is a little road that leads up to Monte Cetona, just 6 km away.
Swimming Pool The swimming pool, in a panoramic position and immersed in the green of the beautiful garden, is on the same level as the house and about 7 metres from it. It measures 12 x 6 m, with the depth varying from 1,20 mt to 2,50 mt, four Roman steps lead into the pool, the purification plant is with chlorine and there is external lighting. The solarium area, partly covered in wood and partly in lawn, is provided with sunbeds, deckchairs and umbrellas and a cold-water shower. All this is set in the ideal spot for relaxing in the sun. The pool is open from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October.
