The owners are an American-British couple who left England in 2006 in order to live a Mediterranean and continental lifestyle and to allow their children to explore their Tuscan roots and experience another culture. Now that they are touring Europe and America during the summer months, they wanted to open up their home so that others may completely indulge and share in the Tuscan experience.

The Owner purchased this villa in 2007

The lifestyle of Tuscany is too good not to partake and is a place where the modern world does not encroach. With its fabulous food, world class wines, gorgeous weather, slower paced life, traditional values, friendly people, endless culture, long history and fabulous beauty -- the owners asked themselves 'What is not to like?'

The sunrises, moonrises and sunsets over the hills, clear starry nights, the morning bird song and views are spectacular to behold and absorb. The tranquil atmosphere is very special. Having a private pool is a huge luxury. Its location is superb. It offers the best of both town and country with stunning views every time one gets in the car to drive somewhere.
