The Villa lies in a panoramic position surrounded by vineyards and olive groves at Montaione , a few kms far from San Gimignano. It's an independent VILLA (for 10 people) with its own garden sharing a big swimming pool .
The Villa is a part of a wonderful estate of 5 Tuscan villas houses in four buildings. The entire property is well maintained to a high standard with perfectly manicured lawns and gardens.
PLEASE NOTE each building is in a position with reasonable space between them allowing for good privacy in the individual villas.They all have their own entrances on different sides of the complex giving each a sense of privacy. In a shady corner of the property is a lovely covered sitting area. The owners also live on the property.
The Villa is all recently reconstructed from the original farm buildings are furnished in style and comfort with all mod-cons and with a wonderful pergola to the front. From the pergola there are large, arched glass doors into the villa.
Air conditioning only on the ground floor.
At the ground floor living room and dining room are 2 huge spaces divided by a high archway. Both have tables. The dining room with its wooden dining tables which can seat in total a group of 14 people is ideal for cooking classes and dinners with our Chef(don't miss this highlight during your stay) . As I wrote there is also a very nice covered pergola outside by the garden for dining al fresco.
To the other side of the dining room is the spacious and well equipped, modern kitchen. It has an original fireplace on one side which is ideal for barbequing indoors. The room includes 6 gas hobs, an oven, dishwasher and a double sided fridge and freezer. Plenty of work space is provided by the island in the centre of the room. Glass and wood doors provide access to the garden. A guest toilet completes the ground floor.
Upstairs 5 double bedrooms, all en-suite bathrooms.
Only one room can be made into a twin room, this must be requested on booking if required. Each bedroom has it's own TV sat.
In the centre of the property is a wonderful pool surrounded by a tall hedge. Next to this is a large fenced lake, ideal for fishing or just relaxing by the quite waters. From the lake there are open views of the valley below.
As I wrote the Villa is a part of a large estate but often it will seem like you are the only guests, it's always so peaceful and quiet !
On the property, not far from the swimming pool area, is a large, fenced lake. Next to it is a little paved terrace furnished with tables and chairs. From the lake there are fantastic views of the valley below. It is possible to fish in the lake but guests must bring their own equipment.
Also on the property is a tennis court, a soccer pitch and a bocce court.
To one side of the pool is a smaller paddling pool for the children. Both pools have roman steps to enter. Next to the little pool is an outdoor shower.
The main pool is 14x8 metres and 1.2 metres deep. While the baby pool is 5x8 metres and 0.60 metres deep. They are open from May to October, weather permitting.
If you are looking for a peaceful destination for your next vacation, then look no further. Visit Montaione, a small, quaint village in the Florence province of Tuscany, Italy. Located more than 300 meters above sea level, this village has a lot of culture, art and history to offer.
It is very near to the cities of Florence, Siena, San Gimignano and Volterra and also, just a few kilometers away is the Sacro Monte di San Vivaldo (the Sacred Mount of San Vivaldo) which is also known as Tuscany’s Jerusalem. Pilgrims come here each year to visit a group of temples and churches built on the mount and this place holds great religious significance for them.
