Imagine enjoying a family holiday in a historic 17th-century farmhouse, surrounded by the spectacular Southern Tuscan landscape. Offering panoramic views of the idyllic Val D’Orcia (nominated by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site), this hilltop estate offers beautiful gardens, a private pool and charming architectural details such as original cotto floors and wood-beam ceilings.
Approximately 2.7 kilometers of unpaved road with panoramic views leads to the property, which is secured by a gate. The grounds are filled with cypress trees, plants, flowers and manicured lawns. There is a swimming pool (15 x 17.5 m wide, .9 to 2.3 m deep) surrounded by 12 sun loungers, umbrellas and an outdoor shower. There is a covered veranda overlooking the pool, with tables for alfresco dining for 12 (additional chairs may be added) and a ping-pong table. There is also a paved interior courtyard with an ancient well and an arched gallery, which connects the U-shaped villa to the veranda and swimming pool area. A second dining table for 12 is located in the courtyard, in front of the doors to the kitchen. There is a covered parking area behind the villa, which is not visible from the villa’s windows.
