Feeling down? A stay at La Vetrichina will leave you relaxed and refreshed. The lovingly restored seven-bedroom farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside has comfortable interiors and gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside, plus a location near the historic spa town of San Casciano dei Bagni. For extra peace of mind, the owners live nearby and are able to solve problems or offer local expertise.
The gated villa has plenty of space, indoors and out. Both the living and dining rooms open to terraces, one of which is covered and has outdoor dining furniture. Have a swim in the pool, down a flight of steps from the house, take a nap in a lounger on the pool deck and rinse off in the outdoor shower. A separate guest house can be used for small parties or cooking classes. For smaller guests, there’s a selection of children’s games, books and comics; for adults, there’s a ping-pong table and Wi-Fi access.
Inside, traditional terracotta floors are brightened by whitewashed beamed ceilings. In the living room, there’s plenty of seating around the original fireplace, set off by modern red and turquoise accents. The rustic-meets-modern dining room has a fireplace and farmhouse table in contemporary neutral tones. An eat-in kitchen has airy charm, plus perks like a professional espresso machine and wine cellar cabinet.
La Vetrichina’s seven bedrooms have the same breezy style. There are four bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms and one bedroom with a queen bed and en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom and are ideal for a family with children; one has a king bed and the other has two twin beds.
Though the villa offers the peace of a rural location, it’s only a 5-minute drive from a church and gym, and a 10-minute drive from a restaurant and tennis court. Pick up local specialties at the grocery store or set off on a day trip from the train station, both a 25-minute drive away. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the course that’s 40 minutes away. If you’re arriving in or departing from Italy, the Rome airport is 2 hours away.
“Our goal when renovating Villa Vetrichina was to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for our guests, while respecting the unique character of this Tuscan farmhouse. Furnished in a traditional country style with great attention to detail, we are now pleased to welcome guests to this special corner of Tuscany, filled with art, nature and simplicity. Living in a house not far from the villa, we are present but absolutely discreet, and able to assist with any services you may require during your stay.” – Enzo and Patricia
