Description from manager
For those seeking a serene escape to the Tuscan countryside, this 1000 year old charming villa nestled amidst the verdant woodlands is an ideal choice. Once the home of a Camaldolese monastery, the property is just the place to commune with nature, while enjoying modern comforts such as a private pool, solarium and alfresco meals. Girasole has had many famous guests including Italian movie director Leonardo Pieraccioni, Roberto Benigni and the Duke of Aosta.
(6 hectares/14 acres)
The grounds are set amidst 5 hectares of woodland and 1 hectare of gardens filled with fragrant flowers, shrubs, potted plants and trees. The surrounding forest is home to the oldest cypress tree in the valley, and nature walks often lead to sightings of deer, birds of prey, squirrels, hares and owls. There are three primary buildings on the property: the main villa, a guesthouse and the old chapel (now a second guesthouse). There is also a cabin surrounded by olive trees, which serves as a relaxation room. Near the main villa there is a covered pergola in front of the kitchen that has dining tables and a barbecue, and there is another dining area with picnic-style tables. In the middle of the garden, a wooden staircase leads to the swimming pool (12m x 6m x 1.5m deep, open May 15 - September 30) and a large outdoor solarium furnished with sunbeds, tables, chairs, umbrellas and a shower. There is also a covered patio with sofas, armchairs, games, magazines and an additional refrigerator/freezer. Near the pool, surrounded by olive trees, the small cabin is furnished with rugs and pillows. There is an ancient well as well as a children’s play area that has a ping-pong table, hammocks, rackets and balls. The first-floor terrace has geraniums, tables for up to 8 and great views. Parking is available within the gated grounds.

A stone arch leads to the living room, which has three sofas, a flat-screen TV with satellite, dining table for 20 to 30 people, a piano and a 7th-century fireplace.

Near the kitchen there is a bathroom with a sink, toilet and bidet. A terra cotta staircase leads to the first floor. Outside of the main villa there is a separate laundry room with a washing machine, clothes dryer, iron and board. A separate bathroom houses a shower, sink, toilet and bidet.
