Enjoy a Tuscan retreat thats both quiet and secluded and convenient to the regions cities at Villa Mimosa. Originally built as a summer home where noble families could escape the heat, the restored six-bedroom property offers an escape from the pressures of modern life without sacrificing modern conveniences. Located just off the highway between Florence and Siena outside the town of Staggia Senese, its in the center of Tuscany without being in the thick of things.
The elegant three-story home is approached through a gated courtyard and surrounded by vineyards and cypress groves. Theres a pool with outdoor shower as well as a charcoal barbecue, outdoor dining area and plenty of lounge chairs for sunbathing. Thanks to the recent restoration, the interiors are air-conditioned and have Wi-Fi access. The propertys caretakers live on the premises, making it easy to get assistance if needed.
The living areas of VillaMimosa prove that stately spaces can be comfortable, too. In the sitting rooms, terrazzo floors covered by Persian rugs, paneled walls and original moldings create an elegant envelope thats filled by traditional-style wooden furniture and plush sofas pulled up to a fireplace. The formal dining room continues the theme with cool mint-green walls and antique sideboards. The kitchen, however, is fresh and modern, with white cabinets, black and white tile floors and marble countertops.
Each of the villas six bedrooms has air conditioning but is just as elegantly decorated as the propertys common spaces. There are four bedrooms with queen beds, each of which has its own en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom; one has two twin beds, and the other has two twin beds that can be converted into a queen bed.
VillaMimosa is set on a hilltop outside the ancient town of of Staggia Senese. From the villa, its just over a mile to the towns church, restaurant, tennis court and grocery store. The Castellina Scalo train station is about 2 miles away and the Colle Val dElsa golf course is 5 miles away. Theres a beach 48 miles away, and a ski area 85 miles away. The cities of Siena and Florence are 10 and 28 miles away, respectively.

A year and a half ago we decided to plan a family vacation to celebrate a special anniversary and two special birthdays. This vacation was going to include our family of five daughters, their spouses, eight grandchildren of varying ages, several cousins and, additionally, many friends and former colleagues. We knew that not everyone would be able to celebrate with us at the same time. Our guests would be coming from different parts of the world so we decided to focus on Tuscany. We were so happy that we did and that we chose Villa Mimosa. With its six bedrooms, 6 1/2 bathrooms, large public rooms, spacious dining room and beautiful grounds with swimming pool there was space for everyone at various times during our six weeks in the most beautiful spot in Tuscany. The owners (who live on site) were responsive to our every need and made us feel at home there. Everyone of every age said it was their best holiday ever. We agree!
Making travel arrangements for 11 people in Tuscany could have easily been a complex vacation to plan logistically. However it was was made smooth and easy by the entire staff at Luxury Retreats. Every single staff member that I interacted with during the 6 month planning process were all knowledgable, organized, pleasant and intelligent. They communicated with me (phone & email) when they said they would and forwarded all required documentation as promised. They were there to help me every step of the way. When one villa owner, very early in the process, tried to change the deal when we got to the contract phase Ben Meakins became an advocate for us and not the property owner. Ben took the initiative to find us a MUCH better villa for less money. I don't think there are any luxury rental property companies better than Luxury Retreats. I will absolutely use your company again and have already recommended Luxury Retreats to many colleagues. Five stars - my highest rating. Thank you
