VILLA IL FORTE

Description

VILLA IL FORTE - PONTASSIEVE

7 Bedrooms

Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent seven-bedroom property is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With wonderful views of the surrounding greenery, this exclusive 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.

The villa is just a stone’s throw away from 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 and thirty minutes by car, you can reach San Gimignano, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Italy. From afar, San Gimignano looks like a town from a Renaissance painting: a circle of 13th-century walls enclosing tall, teetering stone towers. Its towers make it instantly recognizable, but the art treasures held within its walls are just as remarkable. Although the town is small, there is enough art, architecture and fine food to keep you busy for more than one day.

The villa is also few kilometers 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.

In less than two hours by car, you can reach 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 center filled with fascinating Roman ruins, medieval buildings and alabaster workshops.

Villa Il Forte is 50 km from Florence Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, 119 km from Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, 117 km from Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport, and 306 km from Rome Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. Florence is 31 km from the villa, Arezzo is 77 km, San Gimignano is 80 km, Siena is 97 km, Volterra is 103 km, Montepulciano is 111 km, Pienza is 118 km, Pisa is 128 km, and Perugia is 153 km.

The Property
Majestically located where a fortress once stood, Villa Il Forte represents an oasis of tranquility just a stone’s throw from Florence. With all-round views over the green Tuscan hills, the property is the ideal place to enjoy a holiday in the company of family and friends. Set on a gentle hill, the villa boasts breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside. Offering an elegant atmosphere and period furniture, Villa Il Forte can sleep up to thirteen guests in seven bedrooms (six double bedrooms and one single room) spread over three floors.

Surrounded by a generous garden, the property boasts an exclusive swimming pool (heated on request at an additional cost) and a spacious paved poolside area. With a calm atmosphere, the poolside area represents an idyllic spot for basking in the sun and relax. These views can be enjoyed from the multiple outdoor dining spots, perfect for a true Italian al fresco experience.

With an exquisite blend of period charm and modern comfort, the property boasts a timeless and impeccable atmosphere. Filled with fabulous period furniture and exposed wooden beams, the ground floor houses areas designed for leisure time with your fellow guests. On the ground floor you will find the main entrance hall with billiard table, a gym and a yoga studio, and access to the garden and outdoor spaces. Fitness lovers will be able to keep up with their workout regimen without leaving the comfort of their own villa.

On the first floor you will find a generous sitting room complete with fireplace, a dining room, a study and TV room with fireplace, a kitchen and a breakfast room. From the living room, you can access the spacious south-facing terrace overlooking the surrounding grounds. This room also has access to the pool terrace on the north side, with a shaded dining area and views of the Italian garden. On the first floor you will also find two double bedrooms sharing a bathroom with tub (located between the two bedrooms) and a guest bathroom.

On the second floor you will find three double bedrooms and a single room, and a bathroom with shower. On the third floor, the attic, you will find a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. The rooms give classical Tuscan design an update without abandoning tradition. You will find parquet floors, rich pops of color, lovely fabrics, and, perhaps best of all, great views of the surrounding greenery. Please note that air conditioning is only available in the attic bedroom. Please note that the caretaker has their own independent apartment, with their own and independent entrance, on the ground floor of the villa.
