Description from manager

Looking to explore the Chianti region of Tuscany with all the comforts of home—and more? This estate features two private villas for rent in Tuscany, two swimming pools, sprawling grounds and all the amenities indoors. How is this possible? One of the owners of this accommodation in Tuscany—with whom you'll share the property—is originally American, and she's furnished both villas for rent in Tuscany to American tastes. So relax! Lounge at this Tuscany vacation rental, take a refreshing bike ride to nearby Certaldo (we highly recommend exploring the Pretorio Palace), or take a day trip to Florence and beyond!

<p>Enter the estate of this historic 14th century villa via a private gate and find yourself in a garden filled with cypress, pine, and oak trees. There are lemon trees and a covered terrace overlooking vineyards and the valley. Also on the estate you will find several barns, and an unused underground wine cellar. One third of the remaining land is a nature reserve—a wooded area inhabited by wild pheasants, rabbits, boar, and hedgehogs. Another part of the estate is used for olive tree cultivation, and there is also a resident horse that enjoys free grazing around an ancient Roman fresh water spring. Tenuta dell’Anima - 12 is the combination of two separate accommodations on the same estate: Villa Sella and Villa Certaldo. Villa Certaldo is on the east wing of a villa shared by the owners with its own private entrance, covered terrace (shared wall with Villa Sella) barbecue, parking and garden area. It shares a swimming pool (16m x 6m) with La Solaia, and the owners of the estate. Villa Sella is an independent house with its own private swimming pool (9m x 4m), fenced garden and a spacious covered terrace with a table and chairs for ‘al fresco’ dining (shared wall with Villa Certaldo). There is a gate between the two private yards that can be opened. There is plenty of parking on the estate. </p>

About the area

<p> This Tuscany estate and two villas are located 50 meters off of a paved, lightly traveled country road. A bus stop is only 200 meters away, and the nearest town is Certaldo, at 4 km, which can be reached by car. With a population of about 15,000, Certaldo has all the necessities combined with small-town charm. Pick up groceries or eat out in the modern section and spend the rest of your day exploring Certaldo Alto, the old medieval village. You'll find many merchants selling traditional products such as wine, woven baskets, and ceramics. In July, you may find yourself in the midst of a lively Renaissance festival, complete with street artists, actors, musicians, and more. And don't forget to get your fill of medieval architecture! You can explore the Pretorio Palace or marvel at the profile Certaldo castle cuts across the sky. Like museums? Visit the house of Giovanni Boccaccio (author of The Decameron). The beaches of Forte dei Marmi and Viareggio are within day-trip distance, along a lovely drive going past Pisa. Day trips will also take you to San Gimignano, Siena, and Florence. For arriving, you may wish to fly into Pisa and take the train directly to Certaldo, where you can rent a car.</p> <p> Lucca: 60 km/37 mi
