A perfect luxury holiday retreat in the heart of Tuscany, secluded and yet so close to the region’s main attractions.
This magnificent 17th century Tuscan farmhouse is situated in the beautiful woodlands of the Siena hills, high on the crest of the estate of Montestigliano, only a few kilometres south of Siena and within easy reach of the Chianti area, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. It boasts an extensive private garden, swimming pool and courtyard with traditional pizza oven for fantastic dinners under the stars.
The villa complex, including the adjoining annex, sleeps up to 14 guests with seven bedrooms and seven bathrooms. All twin beds can be made into doubles.
In the heart of Tuscany
The Villa is positioned on the ridge of the Montestigliano estate, which extends over 2,500 hectares of agricultural land, in the Province of Siena.
The local area offers numerous activities, from gentle strolls through the woods, guided horse rides and bicycle tours, a wander through a local market or shopping outlet or a dip in a steaming thermal spring.
Numerous traditional restaurants located in and around Siena offer typical Tuscan dishes served alongside fantastic local wines, and of course let’s not forget the multitude of renowned wineries, where visitors can sample a vast array of fine wines from the areas of Chianti to the north and Val d’Orcia, Montalcino and Montepulciano, to the south, to be enjoyed alongside rich platters of local cheeses and cured meats.
This typical Sienese farmhouse has been restored with great respect for and attention to its original details, preserving all the rustic features of rural Tuscan architecture intact, both on the outside and inside. The combination of the original characteristics with elegant and eclectic interiors gives the villa a sense of nobility. The rooms have exposed beam ceilings, limewashed walls in soft colours and terracotta tiled floors, with touches of modern Italian design in the fireplaces, bathrooms and outdoor features.
The swimming pool
A wonderful place to relax
Stone steps lead down from the main villa to the property’s private gardens and park, and immediately below lies the “infinity pool” with a travertine terrace that blends perfectly into its natural rocky environment. A wonderful spot for daytime relaxing or to enjoy a refreshing glass of prosecco as the sun sets, turning the sky into an array of fiery colours. Surrounded by nature, it is perfect for a peaceful retreat from the hustle and bustle of everyday commitments.
