Located in the heart of Etruscan Tuscany, a short distance from the small town of Pomarance. Situated at the end of a ridge, one side facing Volterra, the villa has uninterrupted views over a long valley. The location is exceptional, tranquil, with stunning views over traditional Tuscan rolling countryside. The villa was recently restored, and is now divided into two fully independent homes. While traditional features such as beamed ceilings and terracotta tiles have been maintained, the kitchens, bathrooms and facilities are all modern and of the highest quality, which means that you can enjoy your stay in traditional Tuscan style, and have all the modern amenities you need to ensure real comfort. Ideal for families holidaying together, each house has 3 comfortable bedrooms, 2 x double, 1 x twin, fully equipped kitchen, large bathroom. The large private pool has wonderful views over the countryside. The villa sits in 8 acres of its own grounds, olive grove, pasture and woodland.

A beautiful house in a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We loved Tuscany but it was this wonderful villa, with it's beautiful views and surroundings that made our holiday! We had a brilliant holiday at Casa Eduardo, it was like a home from home but much more relaxing and beautiful. We had BBQs outside and watched the sunset by the lovely swimming pool. The villa is spacious with all the mod cons you need as well as being traditional. The villa is in a lovely area too and great for exploring Tuscany. We went to Florence, Sienna, San Gimignano and lots of other local places.

One of the best things about the Villa are the owners, they were so helpful to us before our stay providing lots of local information and helping us with anything we needed. They provided a welcome basket of food some homemade olive oil too. Erich who worked at the Villa was also friendly and helpful to us. We will definitely recommend to family and friends and hope to go back soon.

Great villa, stunning location.

  • 5 of 5

We spent two weeks in the Hill View villa. The villa itself is well-equipped for a family, with everything you need for an enjoyable stay. The real appeal is the stunning valley location and the grounds - great (large) pool, very peaceful and wonderful views across Tuscan hills. Although there are two villas, they are private and we rarely shared the pool with other guests. Pomarance is a lovely village, unspoilt by tourism (so don't expect English to be spoken much) but with enough good shops and a good weekly market every Thursday. Many excellent restaurants within a short drive, as well as others further afield. We visited Volterra a couple of times, Siena and San Gimignano but other less-known villages were equally beautiful. Mark, the owner, was very helpful prior to the trip with providing bundles of info, and Eric (the contact in Pomarance) was on hand to help with any issues, e.g. arranging a visit and accompanying us to the vet to sort out our pet passport. All in all, we would thoroughly recommend the villa, location and surrounding area!

Notes on accommodation: The property is a fully renovated traditional Tuscan stone house, however has been fitted & furnished to ensure comfort & maximum convenience, All windows have wooden shutters, first floor rooms also have screens. In hot summers the thick stone walls help keep the interior pleasantly cool. In winter there's a working hearth in the lounge, & gas central heating. The property sits in almost 8 acres of its own grounds, consisting of garden, olive grove, meadow and woods. It is particularly suitable for families with children, due to the private location and space available for play. One of the advantages of Casa Edoardo is the space and mix of terrain, flat garden, hill-side, long approach road, olive grove & woodland. Our two young sons love to explore the different areas of the land, when they are not playing in the swimming pool. The pool water is treated with an ecological cleaning agent, not chlorine based, which means that it is very mild on the skin & eyes. Outside: Each house has its own secluded terrace, with table & chairs for relaxing or dining. Children can play on flat or gently sloping grassland near both houses. The two houses are joined, yet each has its own private area, if needed. The entrance to each house are at opposite ends of the building, so are private, or easy to access if sharing with family or friends. There is a large, 12m x 6m swimming pool, infinity-style with views over the valley. The pool is for the sole use of the two houses. There is ample sunbathing space, loungers & chairs provided, plus shaded area with tables & chairs. There is also a shower at the pool area. The pool area is illuminated at night, so why not enjoy an evening dip too! A small play area for children is within view of the pool. A grill is available for guests to use. The pool and pool area will be cleaned regularly during your stay. If you need to, you will find mobile phone reception is excellent, due to the villa having an elevated position.
