Every moment of the year offers great be here now moments to enjoy.
The Main House has been decorated in a clean modern style maintaining the classic Tuscan characteristics that make the home so welcoming as well as reminiscent of a time of noble kings, queens, dukes and duchesses. Hidden away in the 350 sq.mt. (almost 4000 sq. ft.) are all of the modern amenities you have come to expect in high level accommodations. The ground floor was designed to soak in the sunlight of the day with its oversized dining room that opens onto the garden also featuring a working fireplace. There are two fully equipped kitchens with every modern amenity you may need. Tons of places to sit and read a good book, watch some TV, or take a cat nap while or after enjoying a fantastic glass of Chianti. Three steps up you will find the first double bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower stall.
Continue upstairs where you will find an additional four bedrooms; three doubles and one twin. Each has its own bathroom en-suite with shower stall. There is also a bright living room where you can read, rest and relax. All rooms on the first floor are fully air conditioned.
The Barn is located a few meters from the villa and offers a romantic loft like solution when an extra bedroom is needed. It has two floors; enter into a cosy sitting area complete with working fireplace, full kitchen and bathroom with shower stall and continue upstairs to a very comfortable bedroom with very particular lighting.
The swimming pool blends into the landscape as it seems literally scooped out from the land with its local stone mosaics. Plenty of sunbeds overlook the rolling Chianti hills and you are just entranced by the beauty of it all. There is of course a hot tub adjacent and convenient cabanas for your convenience poolside.
The gardens are a true melange of local foliage, colors and scents that make up the heady majic of the Tuscan countryside. Enter the property by ascending a hill revealing the entrance gate that gives way to the enchanting atmosphere you can now call your own as the entire property is fenced and private for your exclusive enjoyment.
