A luxury Tuscan farmhouse perfectly located in Val d’Orcia
Dating back to 1600, this luxury country house, located atop a hill with views over the countryside, is the perfect Tuscan retreat. The villa, offering utmost privacy, is the ideal place for those seeking tranquillity and beauty.
The outdoor areas, which have been designed to accommodate larger groups of friends, comprise an internal courtyard that can be used as a chill-out area, a panoramic heated pool with sun loungers and a pergola with dining tables. The house is surrounded by a garden of indigenous plants, flowers and herbs such as lavender and rosemary, while cypresses, olive trees and fruit trees create a natural green boundary around the property. The views over Mount Amiata, the city of Pienza and of the rolling hills of Tuscany can be absorbed from the garden or near the pool.
While the villa has been modernized to ensure the ultimate comfort of guests, it still retains its traditional look and atmosphere. The furnishings are elegant and in keeping with the style of the period, while the beamed roof, the parquet floor and the ancient stones floors add to the charm of this Tuscan farmhouse.
The living area is tastefully decorated, while the fireplace adds to the enchanting atmosphere during the winter months. The dining area, reached by a staircase, is spacious and bright with luminous tones which create a wonderful ambience.
Enjoying its location in the winelands of Italy, the villa has its own wine cellar in which is stored some of the best Tuscan and Italian wines: these include the Nobile of Montepulciano and the Brunello of Montalcino; from the fine Super Tuscany, the bobbles of Franciacorta; the intense Barolo and Barbaresco from the Langhe region; and from the south, the brilliant whites from Campania and the captivating Sicilians.
All six suites have stunning views over the countryside. Although all the suites are decorated in the same style, each has been given its own identity by the adding of unique touches.
