FAMILY-FRIENDLY VILLA RENTAL IN TUSCANY WITH POOL

Certaldo Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Looking to explore the Chianti region of Tuscany with all the comforts of home and more? This accommodation in a Tuscany villa has it all, from a swimming pool to sprawling grounds and all the amenities indoors. One of the owners, who lives on the estate in the family villa, is American and she's furnished this holiday villa in Tuscany to American tastes. So relax! Lounge at this Tuscany vacation villa, take a refreshing bike ride to nearby Certaldo (we highly recommend exploring the Pretorio Palace), or take a day trip to Florence and beyond! There is another villa, Villa Certaldo, and an apartment, La Solaia, right next door.

(500 m2/5,382 ft2) This independent villa is situated on a private estate that consists of the owner's residence, another villa (Villa Certaldo) and an apartment (La Solaia), both for rent. This villa is nestled into the side of a hill leading up to the main villa, which sits on the crest of the hill. The outdoor areas are on different levels and separated by a fence, so remain very private. A gravel parking area is conveniently located a few meters from the front entrance, separated by a plot of grass. Views from the house are directed away from the other residences, making this villa private with its own fenced garden. There is an enormous fig tree adjacent to the backyard fence that overlooks the valley. At the front of the house on the ground floor there is a spacious covered terrace with a table and chairs for outdoor dining. A pathway from the terrace leads to the villa's own private swimming pool (open from mid May to mid September 9m x 4m, 1.1m deep). The property is accessed via a gate off of a paved, very lightly traveled country road. The surrounding estate includes a 74-acre nature reserve, populated with wild pheasant, hare, wild boar, hedgehogs, and newly-sited roe deer.

(110 m2/1,184 ft2) Ground Floor: A path from the parking area leads onto the sidewalk of the front yard of the home, providing same level access to the front door. There is then a staircase that leads up to the first floor on the right. A guest bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower is located just on the left. The foyer leads directly into the 22 m2 living room, where there are two sofas (one is a sofa-bed suitable for one), an easy chair, fireplace, and a safe behind a portrait on the wall! There is also a large flat screen TV with satellite, a DVD player, and a small laptop computer. The entire house and garden offers wireless internet connection free of charge. The living room, as well as the rest of the house, is decorated throughout with an equestrian theme. An arched doorway leads into the 10 m2 kitchen, equipped with a cook-top, oven, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, American and espresso coffee makers, and a dining table seating four to six. There are settings for 12, along with children's plates and utensils. Large double arched glass doors from the kitchen and living room lead out onto the 13 m2 covered terrace, overlooking the countryside and furnished with a table and chairs for dining. Several steps from the terrace lead down to the swimming pool. The ground floor also has one 10 m2 bedroom with a 160 cm queen-size bed and an ensuite bathroom with a sink, toilet, and shower. First Floor: Twelve sandstone stairs lead from the foyer to the first floor. The landing has a laundry area with a washer and dryer as well as a sink and iron with ironing board. There are two more bedrooms on this floor. The first 14 m2 bedroom has a 160 cm queen-size bed, a writing desk, and a large window that overlooks the valley. The ensuite bathroom has a sink, toilet, and bathtub with handheld showerhead and skylight. The second 20 m2 bedroom has an extra-long large queen-size bed (175 cm wide x 205 cm long) along with a writing desk and three windows overlooking the valley and garden/swimming pool. The ensuite bathroom has two sinks, a toilet, and shower.
