A traditional 4-bedroom farmhouse surrounded by the Tuscan countryside
Villa Lestra is a beautifully-restored 19th century property which preserves its typical features and traditional charm.
Immersed in a lush garden spreading over 5000 metres with Mediterranean shrub hedges, the villa has great outdoor areas where guests can take in the views of the Tuscan hills and the countryside or just relax by the pool with Roman spa steps and a hydro-massage zone for a relaxing lower back and neck massage. The pool also had a shallow end of only 40 cm in depth which is ideal for the little ones.
There are many sun loungers surrounding the pool and a sheltered gazebo with sofas, armchairs and a small table. The small rustic style hut is equipped for preparing meals which can then be served outdoors. There is a sheltered carpark for up to two cars.
The interior spreading over two floors is beautifully-appointed, spacious and welcoming. Modern amenities have been carefully added to ensure the utmost comfort of the guests, while keeping the original features intact such as the terracotta flooring, chestnut wooden beams and stone walls.
