Villa Beata A is a fascinating villa from the 1600s, of 350 square
meters (about 3760 square feet), with swimming pool and garden. It can sleep
twelve people, and is situated on a hill in the heart of the Tuscan countryside.
You will be 25 km (about 15.5 miles) from Siena, and 1 km (about half a mile)
from Terme di Rapolano.
You will have at your disposition a pool of 6X10 meters (roughly 20X30 feet).
The villa has six bedrooms, each with its own bathroom, positioned around a
great hall. There is also a second spacious living area and a roomy kitchen.
You will spend your vacation in an ancient, characteristic country manor, near
the summit of a small hill, 350 meters (roughly 1150 feet) above sea level.
The villa is the main building of an ancient country estate built by Tuscan
nobility and dating back to the 1600s.
As you approach the villa, you will pass through a beautiful antique gate, and
proceed along a characteristic Tuscan avenue bordered on both sides by tall,
slender cypress trees.
This tree-lined avenue will lead you towards the principal façade of the villa.
You will find yourself in front of a square stone building, the central façade
of which is refined by two open arched loggias. The entryway is dominated by the
stone-carved coat of arms of the noble family of the estate.
Between you and the villa, there stretches a large green lawn, marked by
symmetrical pathways and decorated with large terracotta urns in which perfumed
lemon shrubs have been cultivated.
You will find yourself before a harmonious example of Tuscan architecture of the
1600s, still intact for our enjoyment today.
The villa and the surrounding land, as far as you can see, have belonged for
centuries to an ancient family of Tuscan Counts, and are still part of a single
large agricultural estate.
From the villa, you will see sloping land planted with rows of grapevines,
alternating with areas that have been cultivated with olive trees. In the
distance, the dark green foliage of small oak groves interrupts the cultivated
landscape here and there.

of the villa and of the complex.
Nearby the villa there is a small hamlet consisting of three or four stone
buildings; once upon a time, these were the dwellings of the household servants
or farm workers. Today, though, they have been renovated into four small
apartments, also used for vacation rentals. In this small cluster of houses,
