Description from manager
This beautiful Tuscan villa has many vantage points from which you can admire the rolling hills and landscape of the Chianti region. The villa enjoys a rich history and has been carefully restored to offer modern comforts amidst rustic elegance. Beautiful outdoor spaces equipped with dining and lounge areas are the perfect place to gather with family and friends for meals and conversation. You are also ideally located to plan day trips to Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, and Volterra.
Located on a large estate on a hillside, the villa overlooks vineyards and olive groves. The property is fenced and has private parking. The grounds have manicured gardens, a large lawn with lounge chairs, and an adjacent paved lounge area. 22 steps lead down to the pool (10m x 5m, open mid May to mid October depending on the weather) sunbeds, and small-unheated whirlpool tub with jets. There is a terrace with shaded alfresco dining accommodations as well as an additional shaded lounge area overlooking the countryside. There is also a built-in barbecue area with stone table.

On this level there is also a bedroom with two narrow 80cm twin beds (can be arranged as a queen upon prior request) with an en-suite bathroom with shower, and a separate powder room. <br/>
