Private Chianti Villa with Breath-taking Views and Pool
"Private Chianti Villa with Breath-taking Views and Pool.” - Reviewed by Deborah
Ancient on the outside, modern on the inside, this totally private villa is a marriage made in Chianti heaven!
The oldest part of the villa dates back to the mid-medieval period when a fortress would have posed on this site. Inside, after a lengthy and meticulous restoration process, you will find modern comforts and stylish furniture attuned for an uncluttered and serene experience.
Today, the villa is comprised of two buildings joined by a large glass passage: the main villa and a converted hay barn. A private studio apartment can be accessed beneath the main villa on the pool level. Together, these buildings offer plenty of living areas inside and out for accommodating up to 16 guests in style.
The Tuscan views are particularly impressive – you can see the medieval town of San Gimignano in the distance as well as the nearby valley where guests can forage for truffles in the autumn. Sleek, comfortable interiors styled in light hues allow the stunning views to dominate the subtle decor.
Inside, you may be tempted to congregate in the sparkling professional kitchen with contemporary finishes. Or, enjoy a formal dinner around a huge dining table made from one beautiful piece of wood. For your comfort, you might choose to bask in the A/C on a hot afternoon as you meditate on the views or flip through one of the many coffee-table books.
Outside, enjoy an assortment of furnished outdoor areas for al fresco dining or relaxing, including a terrace, lawn and an infinity pool with sun beds.
Your only responsibility here is to allow yourself to acclimatize to the Tuscan spirit.

Bedrooms and Bathrooms
Continuing the theme of simplicity and uncluttered serenity, white takes the lead in the bedrooms, contrasting pleasantly with either Siena-brick floors or wooden floorboards. Painted wooden eaves recall the careful restoration to update the villa for modern tastes and the bathrooms are squeaky clean and recently remodelled.
Five bedrooms are in the main villa and two in the converted hay barn, which are linked by a glass passage. Look out for the stunning views of San Gimignano in the distance when taking a shower in Master Suite 1, and don’t forget to take some music or a magazine as you soak in the bathtub of Master Suite 2.
The private studio apartment is accessed from the outside near the pool and includes a living room, sofa, small dining table and a mini-kitchen with fridge, two hobs, sink and dishwasher. Outside, guests can enjoy a shared patio area. It is perfect for couples wanting more privacy.

Jaw-dropping views framed by large arched windows create an impressive atmosphere where the Tuscan countryside becomes a larger-than-life work of art in the living areas of this villa. Suitably, the minimal design theme – where white and grey predominate -provides an uncluttered canvas allowing the natural surroundings to be appreciated from both inside and out.
Outside, enjoy the pleasures of a typical Tuscan garden adorned with jasmine and rose bushes with many different areas for relaxing and socializing. The infinity pool with its accompanying Jacuzzi overlooks the Chianti countryside where you can admire the vineyards that change colours with the seasons or note the silhouettes of San Gimignano’s medieval towers on the horizon.
