Although situated on a large estate with other luxury villa rentals, this luxury farmhouse in Tuscany is unique for its private setting and beautiful views. The estate borders a National Park so it is not uncommon to spy deer, pheasants, and other wild game. Beautifully landscaped with native flora, the private grounds of this farmhouse accommodation in Tuscany include a lovely swimming pool surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. It is an ideal spot to enjoy peace, quiet, and spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. This is a great villa in Tuscany for a large group or family because each beautifully furnished bedroom has its own large ensuite bathroom. There are trails and dirt roads on the estate for jogging or walking. Conveniently located in Southern Tuscany, it is possible to take day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and Cortona, as well as destinations in Umbria, such as Perugia, Orvieto, and Todi. You can arrange to have a cook prepare meals in your own home, or drive 8 minutes into the nearby town for dinner.
(2000 acres) An 11th century abbey is the focal point of this estate. There are eleven independent, Tuscan luxury villa rentals decorated in a similar minimalist, architectural style. Each villa is separate and private from other structures. Casa l'Etrusca is a beautifully restored 18th Century farmhouse and it is located at the foot of the Cetona Mountain.
