This property belongs to our family since 200 years. It was the summer home of the family with all around the farming estate. Now this home is not used any more from the family members spread away so we decided to rent it just to make the home live. It's still a summer house without heating at all. Most of the furnishing is still the original one. Some renewal has been done still maintening the original floor tiles, and shape but new bathrooms have been built so each room has now its own bathroom.

Barbara Mac Neil purchased this house in 2010

This house is so nice inside, with all the frescoes and the antique furnitures. So confortable with huge rooms. The private fenced garden is cosy.

TOSCANA PEACE

  • 4 of 5
Villa Iolanda was very comfortable for us 10 persons with beautiful Toscana surroundings. The reservation and all the information before our arrival we got through e-mail and everything worked perfectly.
The Villa itself was as we expected with fantastic ceiling decorations, big and comfortable beds. We also had all the food groceries we asked in the Fridge ready when we came - excellent service.
We had very beautiful and peaceful week. Thank You.

Notes:
Villa Iolanda is a two floor VillaI with it's own fenced garden with private whirpool and private garden. The swimming pool is shared. The Villa is dated around the end of the 19th century. It has frescoes in almost all the rooms, the original one piece marble sink in the kitchen and still maintains the old fashioned charm of an old mansion. We have improved the bathrooms and kitchen for a modern comfort.
