I live with my husband and my two daughters in Milan where I do the architect, but I never forgot the Tuscany and the places of my childhood
.I Decided to restructure this family property, both personal and sentimental reasons, is to be able to enjoy and learn about a truly extraordinary for its scenic location, for its nature, by its silence, its colors , for its perfumes. To feel lulled into a corner of paradise in the heart of Tuscany having at hand the history, culture, beauty.
Absolute intimacy, privacy with nature and an extraordinary view. A place that fulfills and realizes all that we can imagine and desire of Tuscany.
We had a lovely week vacation here at this charming, adorable, rustic cottage!
Lucia was lovely and met us Sunday evening to open up the house and show us around. She was gracious and helpful directing us to a few good restaurants and wrote down some important places, such as the nearest grocery store, etc. In fact, Lucia was so responsive that she replied promptly to a few texts asking for further recommendations (ie. a nearby stable for horseback riding).
The house was exactly as described, but the online pictures don't show how beautiful the views and landscape are... absolutely stunning. The house was about 5 minutes off a main road, up a winding dirt road. This made it so lovely, remote and quiet, but not super easy to run to the store for milk. The pool was fabulous. There were actually a couple villas on the same large property. We didn't overlap with any other occupants (luckily!) so we had the pool to ourselves. It is important to know that this pristine, beautiful pool is shared by the other 2 villas (if fully occupied).
The house is rustic and the beautiful windows don't have screens to keep bugs and moths out. This didn't bother us, and seems to be pretty standard here, but should be mentioned.
We loved a nearby restaurant called Aqualina. It was beautiful and delicious... we highly recommend!
Overall, this villa was perfect for us and we had a wonderful stay. Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful home with us! We would love to return here!
La casa è ubicata al limitare del bosco, e grazie a questo è stato possibile vedere animali quasi tutti i giorni proprio davanti a casa.
L'interno è composto da due camere da letto (una matrimoniale e una con due letti singoli) di dimensioni normali (dotate complessivamente di un armadio e di un cassettone), una saletta con piccola tv, e cucinino con, purtroppo, solo due fuochi (ma provvisto di lavatrice, lavastoviglie e forno a microonde, senza forno tradizionale) e di un tavolo (che in realtà, se non piove, non si usa mai...).
All'esterno è possibile pranzare in mezzo al verde, sotto un pergolato e con bellissima vista del bosco, proprio a pochi passi.
La casa, essendo immersa nella natura ed al piano terra, è facile preda di insetti e ragni vari, che hanno spesso visitato soprattutto la camera dei bambini.
Fastidiosa è stata la presenza di tafani all'esterno (anche in piscina), che ci è stato detto normalmente arrivano a fine agosto e con il clima caldo umido (in ogni caso la signora proprietaria si è subito attivata facendo regolarmente spruzzare disinfestante che ha ridotto il numero dei fastidiosi insetti)
La piscina, di buone dimensioni e dotata di lettini e sdraio, è anch'essa ubicata in un bellissimo contesto verdeggiante.
Complessivamente il posto è molto bello, e consigliabile a chi desidera una vacanza immersa nel silenzio e nella natura.
