Tuscany-Siena/San Gimignano Area Villa 14
This magnificent 17th century Tuscan country villa is situated in beautiful woodland in the Siena hills, high on the crest of a hill, only a few kilometers south of Siena and within easy reach of the Chianti area, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. This estate, a perfect holiday retreat in the heart of Tuscany, combines the original Tuscan farmhouse architecture flair with contemporary and eclectic interiors. The rooms have exposed beam ceilings, lime washed walls in soft colours and terracotta tiled floors, with touches of modern Italian design in the fireplaces, bathrooms and outdoor features. Steps lead down to the garden and park, and immediately below is the “infinity pool” with a travertine terrace that blends into its natural rocky environment. The main villa is located at the end of a cypress-lined drive, and the house is enclosed at the front by large walled courtyard. Featuring five bedrooms and bathrooms, the main body hosts up to ten guests while the annex, approximately 110 square meters, has been designed inside the adjacent barn, has room for extra four guests. Originally housed sheep and cows, today converted into a small self contained lodging, making a perfect companion to the main house and it’s decorated in a more contemporary style, light and airy with an open plan design, providing accommodation for further four persons. Entering directly the upper level are two bedrooms, one double, one twin, each with bathroom with a shower. From the mezzanine an open staircase leads down to the living area with fireplace. To the left is an open plan dining room and kitchen with a pantry/laundry room to the rear. Two large doors open onto a paved terrace for ‘al fresco’ dining with views of the surrounding woodlands. All twin beds can be made into double beds.

LOCATION DETAILS -
Tuscany - Blessed with beauty, wine and an unparalleled artistic legacy, Tuscany’s a region that largely lives up to its fame. Its fabled rolling landscape has long been considered the embodiment of rural chic, a favourite of foodies and wine lovers, while its cities harbour a significant slice of the world’s Renaissance art. Florence in itself, boasts more world-class art than many entire Countries. Famous for its hills outlined by endless rows of cypress trees, majestic castles, thermal spa towns, tiny medieval villages surrounded by olive groves, this is an idyllic region that also features gorgeous emerald green seaside (Maremma and Argentario) as well as dramatic mountains, all in a very concentrated space. From the fashionable Mediterranean coast to the marble mountains of Carrara, often both visible from one same position, the chestnut forests of the Apennines, the Natural parks with lakes, canyons, thermal springs and grottoes, the luxuriant gardens of the Renaissance villas, olive groves and vines, Tuscany is a fantastic place to visit all year round.
Chianti - Chianti is a territory whose boundaries are defined by the Upper Arno Valley, between Florence and Siena, by the road that joins Arezzo to Siena, and by the Florence-Siena motorway. The eight municipalities (counties) are named after the largest town in each, and of these towns Greve in Chianti is the largest. The area of winemaking excellence sanctified by Cosimo’s decree corresponds to one of the most beautiful parts of Tuscany: this is not just because vineyards turn hills into stripy land art installations; it’s also to do with the fact that good wine – at least in these parts – positively needs the wildness that surrounds the vineyards. First-time visitors to the area are often surprised by how untamed much of the landscape is, swathes of holm oak, arbutus, hornbeam, ilex and brooms are draped over hills that bristle with wild boar and porcupines. A glance at Ambrogio Lorenzetti’s 14th-century frescoes of the Allegories of Good and Bad Government in Siena’s Palazzo Pubblico demonstrates eloquently that, for the best part of a millennium, Tuscans have seen a well-tended landscape as a kind of moral imperative. Chianti region of Tuscany Chianti region of Tuscany in the panel showing the Effects of Good Government on the Country, olive groves, neat vineyards and small country villas dot the countryside outside Siena’s walls. Attention to food, to its freshness, provenance and preparation is a natural corollary of this Tuscan country ethos.
