This exceptionally beautiful property is located in a very quiet and spectacular position, just a few kilometres away from the lovely village of Montalcino. The views from the house are outstanding taking in the Val d’Orcia and Crete Senesi, considered by many as the most beautiful areas of Tuscany. The property comprises both a large Tuscan stone-built farmhouse and a small guest house, and has been bought by a well-known Italian interior designer, (the owner of Fontanelle, one of our best properties). Lavacchio has been restored and furnished to the same high standard as Fontanelle and the interior is particularly spacious and well lighted. Two extra bedrooms are available at extra cost.
We just returned from a week at Lavacchio...what an amazing property! The villa itself is exactly as photographed. The owners have done a superb job furnishing every room. We were 9 adults and 3 children and were more than comfortable in the space without booking the additional two rooms. The location just outside of Montalcino is spectacular. We enjoyed many of the local restaurants, as well as two cooked meals on property prepared by the lovely groundskeeper. The villa is equipped with Wifi and has three dining tables...kitchen, dining room and a lovely covered area off of the kitchen. The pool was great...seems to have some sort of leak and chairs could stand to be updated, but that would be my only criticism. I searched for months to find a villa and I can honestly say this one is close to perfect!
