SECLUDED MOUNTAINTOP VILLA - ENJOY THE OBSERVATORY, ROMAN TUBS & CINEMA - VILLA FERRAIA

Monteroni d'Arbia Villa Rental Photos and Description

8 Bedrooms, 15 Bathrooms, 16 Sleeps

Set on a hilltop in the countryside just south of Siena, Villa Ferraia offers luxurious accommodations for groups of up to 27 people. There’s something for everyone to do, from stargazing and cooking lessons to gardening or a spa experience in the four pools and sauna. A library, nearby trails and bedrooms arranged in suites offer peace and privacy, too.

The villa has plenty to offer both adventurous travelers and guests who’d prefer to relax. Take a walk through the nearby woods, arrange a cooking lesson or stargazing session with a local astronomy society or ask to help the gardener in the vegetable garden and grill the produce on the outdoor barbecue. If you’d rather relax, there’s a library and home theater, plenty of seating on the covered terrace, an outdoor pool and shower and a mini-spa of three plunge pools and a Finnish-style sauna. In case you need to connect, there’s Wi-Fi and an alarm system.

Inside, Villa Ferraia’s decor is eclectic and warm, with white slipcovered sofas gathered around brightly painted fireplaces, traditional-style wooden tables and chairs and brick archways. There are plenty of tucked-away seating areas for a quiet moment with a book, but the dining room can seat all 27 guests at once. The villa has a fully equipped kitchen and continental breakfast is provided, but full cook service is also available at extra cost.

The villa’s fourteen bedrooms are divided into five areas. In the main house, the bedroom has a double bed, en-suite bathroom and separate entrance. In the guest house, there are three bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms. Suite A has three bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms, while Suite B has two bedrooms with double beds, en-suite bathrooms and a shared living area. Suite C has three bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: two with double beds and one with a twin bed. In the reception area, you’ll find a bedroom with double bed, bathroom and separate entrance, and the guest suite, located in a separate building, has a double bed, en-suite bathroom, living area and its own kitchenette.

Villa Ferraia is a 15-minute drive from the town of Monticiano, which offers shopping, dining, a train station and a tennis court. If you’re visiting during the winter, it’s an hour’s drive to a ski slope; otherwise, bring your clubs for a round at the Punta Ala golf course, 75 minutes away, or your suit to the Castiglione della Pescaia beach, also 75 minutes away. It’s about a 2-hour drive to Pisa, or a 40-minute flight to Rome.

lovely family vacation

  • 4 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Villa Ferraia. From the lovely staff to the well appointed rooms and grounds, we felt taken care of at every turn. Tatiana, Karolina, Vittorio, and Patricia took care of us and made us feel so welcome. Stefano, the chef, worked wonders in the kitchen and was amazing with the children (there were 6 total, ages 3-8). My youngest son lived in the kitchen by the end of the trip! We appreciated that Vittoria and Patricia thought of every detail and furnished the villa with luxury instead of as a basic rental. We cannot wait to return!

Fantastic

  • 4 of 5
Overall, the group had a fantastic experience. The accomodations were beautiful, the meals were fantastic and the grounds are breathtaking. Everything is clean and well maintained. The hosts, when engaged, were helpful and informative- assisted us in arranging a wine tasting and transportation to Florence. With the exception of Tatiana, the service in general could have been more attentive. If not asked for, it was generally not offered. Considering the cost of the villa, I would have expected more of a staff presence and expected the staff to be more service oriented (drinks by the pool perhaps). The other issue was the A/C which was not working for some of the stay (although I don't think they ended up charging us for that) Tatiana and Stefano were stand-outs. Great with the kids- the cooking class was memorable- and again, the food was great. Overall- the experience was a fantastic one- and we would highly recommend the villa.

It fullfilled all our expectations.

  • 5 of 5
Unexpected, beautiful landscape. Very isolated. Surrounded 360 degrees by green hills. Great accomodations. Very friendly staff, helpful and very discreet. Very good simple tuscan food, using most of their produce from the farm. Lot of actiivities to choose from horseback riding, trecking/walking, star watching,donkeys, pigs, cows, a river and of course visiting the villages. An unforgettable experience.
