Family holidays, intimate weddings and special occasions become unforgettable experiences at this 18th-century villa hidden in the lush countryside between Tuscany and Umbria. The neo-gothic villa has been magnificently renovated by a well-known owner/designer, and is a wonderful place to enjoy the natural landscapes of Southern Tuscany. The region’s excellent wines, cuisine and charming towns are all within driving distance.
A tree-lined road leads into the property, which is surrounded by a private park of 22 hectares. The extensive Tuscan gardens feature walkways, statues, fountains, shrubs and trees including cedar, elm, Mediterranean pine, cypress, lemon and pomegranate, all overlooking extensive olive orchards which produce excellent olive oil. In front of the main villa there is a gazebo with a table and chairs for alfresco dining, as well as additional tables and chairs for lounging. There is a private swimming pool (5 x 11 m, open May through September) surrounded by sunbeds and sunshades, plus a fully equipped bar with a barbecue and a dining table and chairs. A bus stop is located near the property but a car is necessary for day trips. Onsite parking is available.
