Villa dell'Architetto - Pienza - Tuscany

8 Bedrooms (6 double, 2 single) - Pool

Here we find ourselves in southern Tuscany, the Val D'Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage site for several years now. Val D'Orcia is well known for it's picturesque rolling hills, planted with corn and sunflowers as depicted in the movies and the images that Tuscany brings to mind. Lush poppy filled red fields bloom in May, while golden wheat fields, wave gently in the spring and summer breeze. July, features the reds, burnt umbers and raw Siena hues on the palate while the prevailing sunflowers turn their heads following the direction of the sun.
The Val d'Orcia's beauty is matched by its vast artistic and gastronomic endowments. Two of the most important wines in the world are  just a few kilometres from the property in Montalcino (Brunello and Rosso di Montalcino) while a bit further on we find the bountiful wines of Montepulciano (Rosso and Nobile). Not to mention the many dairies that produce alluring sheeps milk cheeses from young to sharply aged. On an artistic note, a wealth of culture works and attractions can be found from Pienza to San Quirico D'Orcia, Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo, Montepulciano, the Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the Abbey of San Galgano whose roofless church contains the fabled sword in the rock. And then of course Siena, Arezzo, Florence, Perugia and Orvieto are all just a short car ride away.

Villa Architect can be considered quite romantic due to its secluded position at the end of a 2.5 km private white stoned road. The property boasts a splendid panorama of the famous "badlands" of the Val D'Orcia (the famous Crete Senesi) with Montalcino twinkling in the distance after dark. A small grove of wild elm trees creates a shaded area to soothe our line of vision on those hazy hot summer days. Directly behind the patch of woods you will find a variety of fruit trees that flowers, and fruit, during various moments during the season. 

A distinctive attribute of the Villa is that the pool can be accessed from various points of the property: from the garden, but also directly from inside a room on the ground floor as well as from the courtyard.
The suggestive pool is 13 feet wide and 78 feet long replicating an antique Roman tub of which 13 x 20 feet remains indoors the rest flows outdoors. This allows for an amazing swimming experience in the cold months as well with a winter wonderland panorama! The pool area has its own full bathroom complete with shower.

Externally you will find a dreamy two seater hammock, two outdoor dining tables each able to accommodate up to 14 guests, 6 pool reclining loungers, 8 reclining chairs and 4 large shade umbrellas. The living room has a patio with a small coffee table and wicker lounge and sofa. 


The Villa was restored using all original local materials maintaining its original structure and design. There is a total area of 6,458 square feet divided into two units.

Each unit consists of 3 double bedrooms plus a single, to accommodate a total of 14 adult guests. One of the single rooms can become a twin to accommodate two children bringing the maximum capacity to a total of 15. Each room has its own private bathroom with whirlpool tub, double shower or large shower (2 bathrooms with tub, 2 bathrooms with double shower, 4 bathrooms with large shower).
There are two large kitchens and each has a 9 hub gas stove allowing you the ease of cooking in a spacious restaurant kitchen but with a spectacular architectural design.  
There are two large living rooms of which one is more elegant with vaulted ceilings and exposed beams, while the other is more functional, which is very convenient when you have kids.  Both are equipped with 32 inch televisions. 3 bedrooms are on the ground floor of which one has direct access to the indoor pool and the other rooms are upstairs. All rooms have windows with screens on the windows.

A portion of the villa walls are very colourful, bursting with vitality in both the living area as well as in the bedrooms, the living area in the other part of the villa is more sober, while bright colors are still used in the bedrooms and bathrooms. Air conditioning in the bedrooms from April 2013.
