Independent villa with 6 bedrooms for up to 11 guests. For smaller groups of up to 6 guests you can rent half of the villa.

The road to the house is paved and lit all the way and although we are in a super tranquil and private area, the property is not isolated, with two restaurants located 2 minutes drive away.

The estate consists of the rental villa and our home which sits about 10 meters away where we live with our docile dog and cat. We work long hours in town and when at home, we highly prize our guests’ privacy and using an independent entrance gate.

We are immersed in manicured gardens with myriads of ornamental plants and terracotta statues scattered all over the grounds. There is a built in wood barbecue/grill and a large pool (13m x 6m). We added two beautiful wooded sundecks equipped with comfortable sofas and chairs where to immerse in total relaxation!

Amenities include air conditioning, Wifi connection (Satellite) suitable to check emails, laundry facilities (o request and operated by the maid).

Entrance on ground level into the living room, kitchen with doors to a covered large loggia with large table and chairs. Two double bedrooms and a reading room – one has direct exit to a terrace with table and chairs. Two bathrooms with shower. Open air loft with two single/joinable beds.

Lower level accessed via external stairways: entrance into a second living room, kitchen with doors to a covered loggia equipped with table and chairs. Two double bedrooms with direct access to the garden and one single room. Two bathrooms with shower.

About the Owner

We have been renting the property for many years and enjoy having guests around. Maurizio, our grown up son lives in town and work long hours with us in our optician shopt. However we are only a phone call away in case of need.

On arrival you will find in the property a villa book with many information on the area and details about the house.

We live on the villa neighboring to the rental property with our best friends: a dog and a cat which roam free at the property and are very well behaved.

We enjoy cooking and if you feel like trying our services just let us know in advance and will do our best to accommodate you.

Since we have limited English we rely on our personal assistants/translators.

Hope to have you as our guests.

Accueil très chaleureux des propriétaires avec Neva qui était toujours aux petits soins avec nous !

L'appartement est très agréable et décoré de manière typique, très calme avec une belle terrasse nous permettant de profiter du magnifique jardin parfaitement entretenu.

Également une très belle piscine avec une plage bien aménagée.

C'est un lieu ressourçant et magique !

La position de la Villa est très bien située pour visiter la Toscane.

A bientôt peut-être......
