Description from manager

Owner's description:

The 100-year-old Sienese brick exterior of this villa in Tuscany belies the contemporary upgrades inside. There, amid the original chestnut beams, you’ll find exquisite marble floors and fireplaces, and a thoroughly modern kitchen. The upstairs bedrooms have electronically controlled skylights to let the stars peek in as you fall asleep - it’s the perfect combination of modern convenience and timeless villa living.

The grounds outside this family villa boast astounding views of the Tuscan hills, and you'll enjoy it all from beside your private pool. Once you’re here you’re not to worry - a “Welcome Basket” filled with Tuscan food and wine will keep any weary traveler well-fed. The on-site caretaker will act as both housekeeper and concierge, so you can make the most of your time in this rich cultural milieu.

The nearest town is Castelmuzio, a tiny village bursting with history. Here 13th century Etruscan towers and city walls remain standing, ready to be explored. Also within close driving distance are Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona and Montalcino. If you know a little Italian and can make the two hour drive from Rome, here you'll experience an authentic Tuscan villa holiday to make tourists green with envy.
