Gambassi Terme Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Although this Tuscany vacation cottage is located on an estate with the Villa Edera to rent, its private outdoor areas give it a very private feel. Rustic and woodsy, this Tuscany farmhouse will make you feel like you're on a retreat from time! It has the added bonus of a shared above-ground pool. Great for day trips throughout the region, from Pisa to Florence to Siena.
(150 hectares) This property dates back to 1900, when it was a simple farming estate. A famous aviator purchased the property and built three unique hunting lodges that still accompany the villa today. 20 years later, the Finzi-Contini family of Florence purchased the property. They lived there until 1954, when the current owners took it over. The property features a combination of Tuscan stone, cotto bricks, and rolling English lawns. Thanks to its location 500 meters above sea level, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside, soft breezes provide a welcome respite from the summer sun. The hunting lodges have been converted into residences—Villa Cacciatore, and a small woodsman's cottage, Casetta Ombra. Each of the structures has its own history and distinct identity. They offer fabulous views, mature oak woods, and access to a vast nature reserve with trails. There is a private pool (5 x 8m), open from mid April to mid October for the Villa Cacciatore and a shared above-ground pool for the Casetta. The houses are very separate and private from the other.
Situated about 50 m from the Villa Edera (also for rent), this is a cozy single-story cottage. From the private parking area, a paved walkway (12m) leads to the entrance. The entrance leads into the central dining/living area. The floors are original terracotta and there are exposed beam ceilings. On the right there is a living area with two sofas and a fireplace. On the left there is a kitchen/dining room with a nice wooden dining table. The dining room has two large windows and glass doors leading to a terrace shaded by three oak trees. A hallway connects the living/dining area with the three bedrooms. There is one bedroom with a queen-size bed (160 cm) with access to a private terrace. It has an en suite bathroom with shower. The additional bedrooms include one bedroom with a queen-size bed (160 cm), and one twin-bedded room designed for children (narrow mattresses 80 cm wide). There is a bathroom with shower shared by these two bedrooms.
