"Impeccable all-season Tuscan villa replete with modern luxuries.” - Reviewed by Deborah
DEBORAH PERFECT PICK “Perched on a Chianti hilltop, this villa felt like home the moment I entered. Contemporary and spacious yet cosy all at once.”
From the outside, this beautiful sandstone 5-bedroom villa commands the Chianti countryside like a quintessential 500-year-old Tuscan farmhouse posing for an architecture magazine.
Surrounded by lush, naturally-landscaped gardens and an impressive heated infinity pool, the 600 Sq. Mt. (6,459 Sq. Ft.) home that was once a strategic watchtower when Siena and Florence battled for power during the Renaissance is today a luxury retreat for families and groups of friends seeking modern comforts under the Tuscan sun. And the views of vineyards and olive groves are simply stunning.
Inside is no less impressive, though decidedly contemporary and luxurious, merging chic Italian style and craftsmanship with fashionable décor and comfort. The open-plan layout with luminous travertine floors favours an abundance of natural light. Exposed stone and wooden beams add character in contrast to the plush contemporary furniture and carefully-selected modern art. It is clear the owner of this villa takes special care over the details that turn a great villa into a spectacular one.
Location-wise, you can expect total privacy, seclusion and the sound of birdsong here – whether enjoying the freedoms of self-catering or taking advantage of a fully-staffed boutique hotel experience. The choice is yours. Its strategic position in Chianti within easy driving distance from both Siena and San Gimignano make it a great option for sightseeing as well as wine tours, cycling trips and relaxation.
