TUSCANY VILLA TO RENT

Certaldo Villa Rental Photos and Description

For a family or small group of couples that wish to immerse themselves in the pleasures of Italian life, this Tuscany villa for rent is the place! You will enjoy your own quiet vacation amidst the beauty of your own peaceful Tuscany villa rental. Day trips to visit nearby cities are a breeze from this Tuscany holiday villa, via the conveniently located SS2 SuperStrada highway from Florence to Siena. It is in the small towns and villages of the Chianti District that you will really enjoy exploring and discovering the many excellent restaurants and vineyards that offer the traveler the chance to sample the bounty of this historic region. And don't worry about grocery shopping until you're ready... when you arrive at this (apartment/villa), you'll find dinner waiting, and the refrigerator stocked, so all you have to do is arrive and relax!

The main section of the villa consists of an 11th century tower to which two sections were later added. When this typical Tuscan dwelling was completely and carefully restored, its original structure was consolidated while retaining as much as possible the original materials and features. The villa is one of the central structures on a working farm of 69 acres which specializes in the production of extra virgin olive oil. Adjacent to the villa is another farmhouse where the owner lives (two people), but the outdoor area of the villa (garden, pergola and pool) are completely private and reserved for the exclusive use of the guests. The expansive views from the villa and its garden include the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch across the rolling countryside as far as the towers of San Gimignano. In the large garden surrounding the villa, there is a private gazebo equipped with a barbecue and dining area and lounge chairs positioned to overlook the valley and San Gimignano. The private pool is 11m x 5m. There is a pool shower and WC provided in the garden under one of the two loggias attached to the villa.

It is surrounded by vineyards, olive groves, and sentinel cypress in a landscape shaped by centuries of farmers' patient toil. The views across the rolling countryside encompass the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch as far as the towers of San Gimignano.
