LA VALIANA Luxury Villa - Amazing View and Private Pool



Updated: 13-Sep-2016
La Valiana: Luxury Villa in Montepulciano (Southern Tuscany) - FREE Wi-fi + WELCOME DINNER INCLUDED

At a few hundred metres from the road that links Montepulciano to Cortona you discover the ridge of a hill covered in vineyards: Tuscany to the left with its soft rolling hills and Umbria to the right, with the stroke of a brush a blue line - Lago Trasimeno. This is the location of a refined Villa, in the very heart of one of the most acclaimed and beautiful parts of Tuscany: among the characteristic town of Montepulciano - famous the world over for its wine 'Nobile di Montepulciano - and the glamour life of Cortona, and even close to the wild and fascinating region of Umbria and Lago Trasimeno. An elegant luxurious Villa with a facade of yellow and Tuscan terracotta, it is resplendent in the morning sunlight which rises over the lake, and at sunset is warm and majestic with its brickwork 'Torretta'. The villa has recently been refurbished and enriched to host a more discerning guest with an eye for beauty as well as comfort. A painstaking restoration by the attentive local craftsmen has given this residence a precious charm. This has been further added to by the use of white stone and Tuscan terracotta and ancient exposed beams and by its large arched windows in wrought iron. Viewed from beneath an intricate play of beams, balconies and terraces, extends a vast panorama of rolling hills with lines cypress trees , distant hamlets and row upon row of vineyards scattered with clusters of olive groves. The rooms are marked by a high standard of attention to detail with handcrafted furniture enhanced by prestigious fabrics. Each one with Air Conditioned, free Wi-Fi, and screen. The villa is also equipped with Laundry Room, dishwasher, I-pod Docking Station, Free Wi-Fi through the villa and by the pool, barbeque, automatic gate. GROUND FLOOR: The ground floor of the Villa has 2 double bedrooms, each with its own small lounge, independent access to the garden and ensuite bathrooms (1 Bathroom with hydromassage shower, and one with Whirpool tub). A large lounge with fireplace and 8 places table, TV Sat and I-pod Docking Station; and even a reading room with porch. A well equipped kitchen leading straight into the gardens, with dishwasher and American Coffee Machine. FIRST FLOOR: 1 large bedroom with twinbed + ensuite bathroom with large shower. SECOND FLOOR: 1 double bedroom + ensuite bathroom with hydro massage shower; lounge with panoramic views and a small independent cooking area with two beautiful terraces with fabulous views of the surrounding countryside. Screen against bugs in each bedroom. Throughout the Villa large picture windows decorated in wrought iron open onto the vineyard and onto the garden, interspersed with rose tubs, lemon trees , Bouganvillae, plum trees, apple trees, persimmon and figs trees which together emanate a sweet scent reminiscent of the countryside and all things good. La Valiana has a panoramic swimming pool (6x12 mt), with hydromassage corner, and a nice gazebo for 'al fresco' dinner at the sunset overlooking the vineyards and the rolling hills of Montepulciano. The villa has a barbecue, and many nice places to have breakfast, lunch or diner, is located in a privately owned valley of olive trees. This provides a lot of privacy, quiet relaxing moments and astonishing views. Framing the valley are the red roofs of Cortona, the contours of Montepulciano, and the remote outline of Mount Amiata set against a blue canvas of the Tuscan sky. And finally the surprise of the vegetable garden at guest's complete disposal. That will be the source of fresh bounty such as zucchini, rocket, lettuce, cucumber and herbs for your cooking. La Valiana is very well positioned for visits to historic fortified towns such as Cortona and Montepulciano as well as day trips to Firenze, Siena and San Gimignano, and Assisi to name but a few.

About the Owner

I pride myself to born inTuscany and to live my life in Tuscany. The passion for my homeland and its many gems is what drive me and my family to excel in offering a top quality villa in an enchanting setting. My family discovered this lost paradise in the summer of 2004. The house and the vineyard were abandoned and in a state of neglect. But as the uncomparable beauty of the view opens out, we immediately fell in love with this ideal bucolic scenary and its dreamy landscape: we owned the property from that moment.

It involved a huge challenge: to transform what was little more than ruins into an elegant villa. Throughout the three years spent renovating the entire property, several major architectural interventions were carried out. An attentive process that have totally captured the refined beauty of Tuscan architecture, by working only with local hands, using some bio-architecture techniques and natural building materials of great value: the antique travertine marble staircase, marble and cotto floors, ancient open-beam ceilings. Fine fabrics, sophisticated colours palette and traditional antique furniture – found at local flea markets and antique shops - embellish every corner of the villa, establishing a comfortable and elegant design, marked by the eye for full details.

We come to light with the sole intention of giving the opportunity to guests to live and breathe Tuscany in an unforgettably beautiful way. Our passion, coupled with the knowledge of our land, makes La valiana your final stop hen searching for an unique holiday in Tuscany.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The villa was as expected, immaculately presented and well appointed. Cecilia and her family were excellent hosts and really helpful and we had a really lovely and relaxing time. The scenery is beautiful and the views from the villa were stunning in a peaceful and private location. - USA

We spent two weeks at La Valiana and it wasn't nearly enough. The bedrooms, bathrooms and dining area are spacious and tastefully decorated in traditional Tuscan style.

The pool and surrounding area is wonderful and provided a place to laze around reading, eating or cooling down from the sun. An incredible place to relax and soak up the Tuscan culture and well positioned for visits to towns as well as day trips to Firenze or Siena.

La Valiana has a special place in our hearts, Cecilia and family were wonderful hosts and maintain the villa and gardens with the utmost care and attentionWe certainly plan to return to La Valiana and enjoy the splendours of this beautiful villa again.

From the Owner

The setting is undeniably charming. Driving on the road that links Montepulciano to Cortona, you come on the ridge of some wavy vineyards-covered hills. And suddenly, behind the bend, a secret and spectacular view opens out where your eyes sweep from Montepulciano to Cortona, as far as a blue stroke of the brush… it’s the secular outline of Trasimeno Lake. Just here rises villa La Valiana, with its face of yellow and terracotta colours, which are shined by the morning sun-light rising upon the lake; and with its brick-turret, warm and stately by the tender light of sunset. Then, you will sight the entrance path, dotted with cypresses; the gravel staircases - lined by roses and wild box hedges – and the white travertine of the main portal. And throughout the villa some French windows - embroidered by wrought iron - open wide into the vineyard and the garden, intercalated by vases of roses, of lemons, of bouganvilles; and the trees of plums, of apples, of kaki and figs… and you will smell all these scents that flood in the house. In the top floor suite “La Torretta”, under the intricate game of roof-trees, the terraces and the large arched picture windows lean out into a wide bird’s-eye view of gentle green hills, strewn with cypresses and remote farmhouses, with orderly vineyards and little olive-hedges. And to frame the valley, the red roofs of Cortona, the majestic contour of Montepulciano, and the remote outline of Amiata Mount, which is distinctly silhouetted against the blue sky … All this will take your breath away each time you gaze out of a window or enjoy your glass of wine in the garden. …. ‘cause this is La Valiana
