Tuscany is a masterpiece of painting and frescoes, and sculptors and architecture. Step back in time visiting outstanding museums, and marvel at the creative genius that developed the region. Gourmets and wine connoisseurs will be brimming with excitement, as the flavors of the countryside are sure to please.
This magnificent Tuscan country house is located in arguably the most picturesque setting of Italy – the Val d'Orcia area of Tuscany. The setting is ripe with astonishing rolling hills and wine country that Tuscany is so well known for.
Set on a wonderfully private piece of land, this area was the exact setting for the Oscar winning movie The English Patient and the breathtaking panoramic countryside scenes from the Gladiator.
The Villa is a two-story building, with the ground floor encompassing the main entertainment area: living room with several couches and various seating areas, a reading room with a large fireplace and large, leather reading chairs, the dining room, with a great, rectangular wood table for up to 14 people. The main entertainment area on the ground floor is a large, open space, divided into various areas, allowing the group to all be together or independent, as they prefer.
The dining room bleeds into a spectacular Tuscan kitchen equipped with all the modern comforts, but keeping the aesthetic of what you would both want and expect in a Tuscan property. There is an open fire grill wonderful for cooking meats and fish, an 8-range stovetop, a large, double oven, and as if that were not enough, an external wood fire grill area, as well.
There is a lovely external, covered dining area facing the back garden off that extends outside, off of the main, internal dining area as well as a half bath off of the dining area.
The first of the 6 bedrooms is a suite, located off of the main living room on the ground floor. The bedroom enjoys a separate, small study and living room area, while the bedroom enjoys a large double bed, hidden closet area, and full bathroom with shower.
A two story annex with three bedrooms (double/twin), all en suite accommodations at the ground floor and gym, relax area, lounge, bar and kitchenette in the loft.
