VALDARNO ESTATE - VILLA GRAN MADRE

Description

VALDARNO ESTATE - VILLA GRAN MADRE - VALDARNO

9 Bedrooms

Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this carefully-restored farmhouse is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With breathtaking views over the surrounding countryside, this five-bedroom property is the perfect location for unforgettable day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and provides a unique opportunity to admire its splendid landscapes while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.

In less than one hour by car, you can reach Florence, a treasure trove of art with an astonishing contemporary vibe. Beyond the extraordinary artistic heritage, a testimony to its centuries of civilization, the best way to enjoy Florence is to stroll along the riverside avenues at sunset, or to get lost among the city’s myriad alleyways of the bohemian Oltrarno or the narrow little streets of San Niccolò, where it feels like you have ended up in another time along its centuries-old walls.

In one hour by car, you can reach the walled town of San Gimignano, one of Italy’s best-preserved medieval villages. As you crest the nearby hills, the fourteen towers of the town rise up like a medieval Manhattan. Today, not even the plague would deter the swarms of summer day trippers, lured by a palpable sense of history and the enchanting rural setting. The historic centre was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, and strolling through the streets will make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

The villa is also a few kilometres from the medieval town of Siena. Its ancient red brick buildings, the scallop-shaped main square Piazza del Campo and the Cathedral Square, dominated by the zebra-striped Duomo, make it an absolute must for anyone traveling to Tuscany. Effectively an open-air museum celebrating the Gothic, Siena boasts secular monuments that have retained both their medieval forms and their exceptional art collections, providing plenty to marvel at.

The villa is a few kilometres from Volterra, one of Tuscany’s most dramatic hilltop towns. Despite its many attractions, Volterra sees fewer tourists than other Tuscan towns, so you can expect to share its winding stone streets with locals and explore its ancient sites without crowds. Founded by the Etruscans and surrounded by medieval walls, Volterra has a notable historic centre filled with fascinating Roman ruins, medieval buildings and alabaster workshops.

Villa Gran Madre is 46 km from Florence Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, 113 km from Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport, 134 km from Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport and 274 km from Rome Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. Florence is 34 km from the property, Arezzo is 46 km, San Gimignano is 76 km, Siena is 95 km, Volterra is 98 km, Lucca is 110 km, Livorno is 124 km, Pisa is 132 km, Grosseto is 134 km, Forte dei Marmi is 141 km.

The Property
Surrounded by rolling hills and wide meadows, Villa Gran Madre is a generous 16th-century manor house immersed in a generous private garden with charming views of the surrounding countryside. This carefully-restored villa is ideal for families and groups of friends who want to enjoy the tranquillity of the countryside in complete privacy. Offering a calm atmosphere, Villa Gran Madre can accommodate eighteen guests in nine double bedrooms (or twelve guests in six double bedrooms) with en-suite bathroom.

Surrounded by a lush garden, this magnificent property boasts an exceptional swimming pool and a generous paved poolside area furnished with comfortable sun loungers inviting guests to sit back and unwind. Offering a calm atmosphere, the poolside area represents an idyllic spot for basking in the sun and enjoying wonderful moments of relaxation in the company of a good book. The outdoor area also boasts large parasols providing plenty of shade on hot summer days.

Decorated with a palette of soft and natural tones, the carefully-designed and maintained indoor spaces are very spacious and feature antique furniture. With original frescoes and attractive yesteryear atmosphere, the villa is surrounded by a romantic park with monumental trees. Spaces once used for the cellars have been preserved, together with the large barrels and the space where the wine tastings took place. Recent works have added a welcoming reading room and an attractive lounge area opening onto a panoramic terrace.

The original private chapel on the ground floor is a venue for romantic and intimate weddings. Offering an elegant and classic atmosphere, the ground floor boasts a very spacious entrance, a cozy reading room with a stone fireplace, a comfortable lounge area with TV, a generous dining room, a magnificent living room with three doors giving access to a panoramic terrace, a cozy breakfast room with fireplace and a fully-equipped kitchen featuring all the amenities you might need during your stay, and a guest bathroom.

The villa can accommodate up to eighteen guests in nine double bedrooms located on the first floor. With a palette of soft and neutral colors, the first floor boasts a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with both bathtub and shower, one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with bathtub, and seven double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom with shower. On the first floor you will also find an additional bathroom with large shower, a living room with original frescoes and fireplace, and an additional living room.
