Overview

About the property

7 Bedrooms, 6.5 Bathrooms, 12 Sleeps (+ 2 CHILDREN)

Located a swift 5-minutes away from the ancient village of San Casciano, La Vetrichina is the perfect getaway for those looking for pure relaxation. Situated within a completely peaceful environment, this lovingly restored seven-bedroom farmhouse has gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside plus beautiful interiors. For an added peace of mind, the owners live nearby and are readilyavailableto offer local expertise.

The gated villa has plenty of space, indoors and out. Both the living and dining rooms open to terraces, one of which is covered and has outdoor dining furniture. Have a swim in the pool, down a flight of steps from the house, take a nap in a lounger on the pool deck and rinse off in the outdoor shower. A separate guest house can be used for small parties or cooking classes. For smaller guests, theres a selection of childrens games, books and comics; for adults, theres a ping-pong table and Wi-Fi access. For an extra-special local experience, we can arrange to have a Tuscan cooking class brought right to you at your villa, and a private chef come and make a memorable meal for a dinner party or event. With such strong culinary traditions and delicious produce in abundance,we highly recommend both culinary experiences during your stay.

Inside, traditional terracotta floors are brightened by whitewashed beamed ceilings. In the living room, theres plenty of seating around the original fireplace, set off by modern red and turquoise accents. The rustic-meets-modern dining room has a fireplace and farmhouse table in contemporary neutral tones. An eat-in kitchen has airy charm, plus perks like a professional espresso machine and wine cellar cabinet.

La Vetrichinas seven bedrooms have the same breezy style. There are four bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms and one bedroom with a queen bed and en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom and are ideal for a family with children; one has a king bed and the other has two twin beds.

Though the villa offers the peace of a rural location, its only a 5-minute drive from a church which celebrates Mass every sunday morning plus nearby tennis courts, horse stables and riding trails. Pick up local specialties at the grocery store, where youll find everything you need from fresh produce to newspapers. You can also set off on a day trip from the train station which is just a 25-minute drive away. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the course thats 40 minutes away. If youre arriving in or departing from the Rome airport, you can reach the villa within a 2-hour picturesque drive.nbsp.

A Note from the Villa Owners:

Our goal when renovating Villa Vetrichina was to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for our guests, while respecting the unique character of this Tuscan farmhouse. Furnished in a traditional country style with great attention to detail, we are now pleased to welcome guests to this special corner of Tuscany, filled with art, nature and simplicity. Living in a house not far from the villa, we are present but absolutely discreet, and able to assist with any services you may require during your stay. Enzo and Patricia

Wonderful Villa and host

  • 4 of 5

Hello! Villa Vetrichina was wonderful! Mani was also great in helping us choose a villa. The only thing I would recommend is for the guest to be connected with the owner of the villa prior to the visit. We had requested from our LR liaison but did not receive any information. As soon as we arrived we were able to make our plans. It would have been easier if we would have made our plans before we arrived . The host helped us with most of our arrangements- she was lovely! And an incredible chef! She gave us cooking classes which were fun for the whole family. We hope to go back! Thank you so much

Perfect Tuscan Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Villa Vetrichina was just perfect for our group of nine. Gorgeous, comfortable, spacious - we really lived all over the house and grounds. The old farmhouse has a great history, but it's been lovingly restored and beautifully decorated, with comfy beds and - important! - the bathrooms are super up to date, with great water pressure and hot water for days! The gardens are gorgeous and we practically lived around the big outside table under the arbor.

The location is a bit of a hike from the more popular parts of Tuscany, so if you are planning to spend a lot of time in the Chianti region, it might be too remote, but it is in a beautiful area with thermal springs and spas - and San Casciano dei Bagni is a charming town.

From the second we arrived, Patricia and her team took such perfect care of us all and I can't wait to return to Villa Vetrichina.

AbsolutelyMAGICAL!Best retreat/vacation for the entire extended family

  • 5 of 5

We have enjoyed many top notch resorts in various places around the world...none of them compare to our joyous and relaxing experience at La Vetrichina with Patrizia and her staff making the experience so special. Beautiful setting, glorious weather during our stay, cooking class at the villa, pizza making party, wonderful side trips nearby....Patrizia makes this wonderful villa an even better experience than you can imagine. Ages 65-1 year old loved it!

Rustic Heaven

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful experience at Villa Vetrichina. Our entire group, ranging from age 1 to 76 returned home with wonderful memories that will last for a lifetime. The Villa itself is warm, cozy and beautifully decorated with simple details that take you back to another world. Patrizia's hospitality far exceeded the service expected from even the most exclusive five star hotels. Be prepared to put on some weight as the food at the house as well as in the surrounding towns was delectable. We enjoyed cooking classes at the villa and the children even got to pluck vegetables from Patrizia's garden. I highly recommend a stay here. We hope to return in the near future.
