It is an ideal place to take a relaxing holiday away from the city, in the midst of the peace of the country, in contact with an endless cultural heritage within a stone's throw from the sea and the most important Tuscan cities of art.
The villa rises in the heart of Montagnola Senese, just 15km / 9 miles far from Siena and 75km / 47,5 miles far from Florence, among the greenery of old-growth oaks, holm-oaks and chestnut trees. Thanks to its high position (500 mt / 1640 ft. Above sea level) you will enjoy a well-aired summer suitable for walks in the nearby woods, crossed by several paths, catching sight of charming landscapes, lots of medieval villages and Romanesque parish churches. There are thousands of paths through Montagnola Senese, which is a hillock in the heart of the Sienese area. The villa is surrounded by a natural environment, with tracks that go through the woods and that are ideal for mountain-biking, horse-back riding and trekking excursions. The building is composed of a mansion built in 1840 during the Grand Duke Leopold II of Tuscany's reign, which has been recently restored, without altering its original features. The outside fronts have maintained their originality, while inside the building, most of the ancient hand-crafted brick floors have been restored, as well as the ceilings with their old wooden beams that had been blackened by the smoke of the mantelpieces once the sole source of heating; the old irregular walls and the arched ceilings have been preserved, too. The antique furniture makes the place comfortable and charming, respecting the ancient rural Sienese traditions. The place is particularly sunny thanks to a wide natural meadow that lays south of the building, alternating with the woods, and that is, together with the beautiful swimming pool, at the disposal of the guests. The villa is composed of three apartments, there are 11 bedrooms and 11 bathrooms, one with Jacuzzi, for a total of 22 guests.
Each apartment has its own fully equipped kitchen.
