About a half an hour drive south from Siena, and well hidden from the world, you reach the small historical parish called Pieve di Santa Maria a Pava, that lies in the relatively unknown, but very impressive landscape of the Crete Senese.

An ancient farmhouse and the little church dating back to the 12th century create this marvelous setting for a memorable vacation. This Tuscany rental villa has many typical local elements, like beamed ceilings and tile floors, and surprisingly luxurious and creatively decorated interiors. There are six suites with adjoining bathrooms, divided over two buildings. All rooms feature a pleasing combination of traditional rustic furnishings and contemporary, hotel quality amenities.

This gorgeous little hamlet is owned by Rita and Johny, a Belgian couple who started to operate this as a B&B guesthouse but now prefer to rent the entire property privately to groups. They offer you warm hospitality, you can elect to have lavish breakfast in the outdoor kitchen and dining room, including various home baked breads and biological marmalades. They can organize delicious lunch and dinner daily upon request. Rita is a professional chef and cooks mouthwatering dishes.

During the long summer season, the pretty internal courtyard, peaceful gardens and secluded swimming pool provide ideal locations in which to relax with a book and a glass of excellent local wine. This Tuscany rental villa is a delightful retreat where you can really enjoy the good life!

Pieve a Pava is an ancient hamlet with the farmhouse and a small Romanesque church from the 12th century creating a wonderful setting in the heart of Siena Province. Being close to several medieval villages makes it the perfect place to stay during your well-deserved holiday in Italy. This luxurious Tuscany rental villa has 6 spacious suites with adjoining bathrooms, where exquisite bath products from Ortigia in Sicily await the guests.

The pool 10 x 5 m = 30 x 15 feet, and  2.5 m = 7 feet at it’s deepest point) The crystal clear water is purified with a biological salt solution, that makes the water chlorine free.

Arriving at Leccetino, down a short tree covered road is like arriving at a very secret location. Tucked into the hillside surrounded by olive trees, this is a spectacular masonry villa, made with stones dug up from the ground on this terraced property. It has been masterly reconstructed just a couple of years ago, under the careful eye of a renowned Norwegian architect who is the owner of this beautiful property.

The original small farmhouse of this Tuscany rental villa was cleverly connected with the adjacent barn to form a pleasing residence. Leccetino is beautifully furnished and embellished with many interesting artifacts. The arrival level has the main bedroom with walk-in closet and large bathroom with a shower. The bed is positioned for a wonderful view towards the Orcia Valley. On the same level you find the large very well equipped kitchen and dining area, which blend into the large living room, all of which open out onto the wide terrace.

This sizable terrace has an amazing view over the surrounding valleys out to Pienza and Montalcino, with Monte Amita in the distance forming the back drop. Closer by the local village of Castelmuzio completes the view, with sound of the distant church bells adding a real touch of village life as it has been for centuries.

The terrace has a covered dining area, a group of arm chairs and the BBQ that completes the scene for evenings spent outdoors enjoying the beautiful panorama with a bottle of local wine. From this terrace and also directly from the living area, you access the garden and a short stroll past the olive trees and a bank of lavender brings you to the poolside. The pool itself has solar heating, should it be needed, and sun lounges, a shower and shade tress, for your enjoyment on this sunny hillside.

Steps from the terrace take you down to two separate and very private bedroom suites. Both have large closets and bathrooms with walk-in showers, one has a queen size bed, and the other has twin beds that can be made together. Both bedrooms open onto the garden terrace with views across the valley. Also on this level is a very well equipped laundry room complete with washer and dryer. In a small cellar you find three bikes for the use of guests to explore the local villages.

Leccetino is a very well designed and furnished Tuscany rental villa, and nothing has been overlooked in creating such a pleasurable setting for you. Having 3 separate bedrooms, all with en-suite baths, makes this desirable villa for 3 couples.

I would like to share this with you. Let me help you discover the beauty of this land and its generous and abundant gifts. The kindness of the people, the delicious food, the splendid wines; all of this and more is here at Val d’Orcia.”

Podere Gli Oppi is a large and well equipped medieval farmhouse on 3 levels, located southeast of Siena and sleeps 14 people with 7 bedrooms plus 5 baths, a pool and a garden. This fully restored Tuscany rental villa is sheltered by wooded surroundings near the village of Trequanda, and about a 30 mile drive from Siena and Arezzo. The house protects a large courtyard beyond which are gardens, outdoor living areas, a pool and an olive grove. This country home caters to all needs with big fireplaces, entertainment (wi-fi, hi-fi, sat-TV) in 3 sitting rooms and the big dining room and modern kitchen. Having all this space and 2 master bedrooms makes this house the ideal vacation retreat for 2 families or a group of friends.

The courtyard
On the south side of the house is a courtyard with a very large table seating 15 or more and shaded from May on by a pergola formed by grapevines. At any season of the year people use this secluded place to have lunch or dinner and cook on the big BBQ. This courtyard which measures about 700 sq ft, has 2 gates, one to entry from parking, and the other to a terrace with a long table that lends itself perfectly to endless meals, discussions, playing games and gazing at the panoramic views. From here you can walk to the swimming pool which is on a sunny lower terrace and to the garden and olive grove.

The olive grove
On the entry side of the house is the olive grove with dozens of century old olive trees from which the owners produce superb olive oil. Here you find several seating corners to enjoy a relaxing time, read or have a nap. When you walk about 150 yards or so through the olive grove you reach the fence on the western end of the estate behind which is the small tar road on which you came from Trequanda. On the other side of that sparsely used road is a big forest for hikers with many deer, and other animals and birds. In the olive grove is plenty of room to play sports.

The pool area
Just south of the house and courtyard there are some terraces with fig trees and lots of flowers. An old staircase leads you down to the pool area which is completely surrounded by flowers, plants and low trees providing you with maximum privacy. The pool is 18 by 5 meters and you can either walk in slowly, take the pool stairs or dive it at 1 end where the pool is more than 2.5 meters deep. By the end of the pool is another pergola so that you sit in the sun or the shade. There are lights in and around the pool for night swimming although the clear skies with millions of stars may be providing more romantic light. After a swim you can take a nice shower by the side of the pool and you can also decide to listen to music on the small hifi set there.

Groundfloor
Let us start on the ground floor although on entering the courtyard there is an inviting wide, covered staircase leading to a terrace on the upper floor. Probably you will enter Gli Oppi through the old blue wooden door to the 60m2 kitchen and dining area. There you will see a massive antique table which seats easily 12 people or more. The kitchen is completely equipped with 2 refrigerators, dishwasher and gas heated stove with a big oven and grill and all the pans, plates etc etc. From the kitchen you can walk into a room which is a “semi office” equipped with PC and printer (in and around the house is WiFi), while there is also a sofa bed that sleeps 2 if you are staying at the house with more than 16 people. Next to the this room is a large suite which consists of a sleeping part with a HD TV and CD+DVD, a desk to work at and a sitting corner around a fireplace. This room is some 50 m2. It was restored completely in 2010 when floor heating was installed at the time when the entire heating and electricity of the house was renewed. This room has an adjoining spa bathroom with old Etruscan period tiles and washbasin as well as a huge bathtub and shower and all other amenities.

Middle floor
You can reach the middle floor either by climbing the outdoor staircase and then entering into the main living room or by taking the indoor stairs from the semi office to the so-called TV room. Let us take the outdoor steps which lead to a typical old Tuscan style, covered terrace from which you have a great view over the rolling hills of Southern Tuscany. Go through the double doors into the main living room where you can sit with 10 or more around a very big fireplace (there is an ample supply of wood). From 3 big windows you get a great view all the way to Cortona at a distance of some 20 kilometers, while listening to music on the CD/HiFi set. Behind the big living room is a lovely bedroom with windows to 2 sides and an adjoining sizable bathroom. In this bedroom is another TV and CD+DVD installation and a great collection of films and cd’s. Next to the main living room you find the TV room, with a big TV screen and DVD as well as Video. You can watch many satellite TV programs or movies from our extensive house collection. Next to the TV room are 2 double bedrooms and 2 fully equipped adjoining bathrooms. So on this floor, which was also largely redone in 2010, there is a combination of living rooms, 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The walls are so thick, as you would expect in a 14th century mansion that there is no need for air conditioning. And then you will find in the main living room a door to a staircase leading up to the top floor.

Top floor
When you walk up the staircase you will find a group of 3 double bedrooms, a small study and a bathroom. Here a further 6 persons can sleep and when they look out of their windows they have the best view of all. The study is sometimes used as a spare room for a child. Throughout the house there is central heating and all the rooms have nice wooden shutters protecting the house from the weather.

The sheds
Apart from the main house, there are 4 extensions namely the old bread and pizza oven, a garage and shed of similar size (with several bikes for the adventurous), a separate extension in which there is a further bathroom as well as a washer and a dryer, and finally a shed closing in the courtyard and made into a large bedroom with a sleeping corner and entertainment area with another set of TV, CD and DVD. Here 2 people can sleep and if wanted there is space for 2 further small beds for children. In this last extension which was constructed “only” 100 years ago, there is air conditioning because the walls are less thick.

Location
From this Tuscany rental villa and its gardens views for many miles can be enjoyed. At a 5-minute drive is the village Trequanda with shops and restaurants. At 30 minutes are the cities of Siena, Arezzo, Cortona and Montepulciano, while Florence and Orvieto are 1 hour and Rome is just over 2 hours away. Exit of the Autostrada A1 and the local railway station are both just 15 minute drive away from this country estate. Tennis, soccer, swimming, cycling, hiking and golf can be done on or very close to this. Housekeeper and gardener are there to make life easy. Numerous good Italian restaurants are close the house. Podere Gli Oppi is child friendly, pet friendly, and also wheelchair friendly on the ground level. There’s plenty of parking for several cars along the access drive. From here you can easily make day-trips to Bologna, Florence, Pisa, Lucca, and Perugia. Also close are the best spa resorts of Tuscany for further relaxation. And for your comfort, the 1 meter thick walls make this house nice and cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.

  • “ Villa Selva was so beautifully appointed - inside and out. It was a pleasure to travel such a distance and arrive at a place that felt like a home rather than a bare bones rental. The owner has worked magic with the gardens and his collection of art work is lovely. Dinners at the villa by a local cook were fabulous. It felt like we brought the restaurant to us.

The villa occupies a gently sloping site facing west across the fertile Orcia Valley towards the majestic Amiata Mountain. Sheltered to the east by a woodland and surrounded by well-tended gardens, the property includes several acres of vineyards and olive groves on this warm hillside.

From the villa and the pool we admire the spellbinding panoramic views over this varied landscape dotted by farms, villages and hill towns. This is a UNESCO world heritage area – including the town of Pienza, also visible from the villa. Pienza has a unique renaissance town plan and a magnificent palace built for the Pope Pius II, who was born here. Pienza was his summer residence in the 1460’s. Closer to Manafiore, just 1 mile away is the small village of Monticchiello, with its walls and towers surviving the events of centuries. In this village are 3 restaurants and a cafe, also a small grocer, ATM and a few shops.

The ground floor of Villa Manafiore is centered around a large L-shaped sitting room with working fire-place, sofas and arm chairs. The entrance hall has a guest powder-room toilet. The dining room is set with a table that seats ten people. Directly outside the dining room is a pergola-covered terrace with a table and views down the valley. The villa is served by a fully equipped kitchen with a pantry and access to the courtyard and the covered outside dining by the pool. The billiards room is the hub for the 2 additional bedrooms, one is a simple twin bedroom with a shower-bathroom, while the other bedroom has a single bed and also its own shower-bathroom. By the billiards room is also a splendidly appointed laundry room with washed and dryer, ironing board, and a well stocked linen closet.

The upper floor is anchored by a generous sitting room with a fireplace. There’s a kitchenette for drinks, coffee and breakfast. The 2 master bedrooms come with fireplaces, dressing rooms (one with a sofabed) and baths with a tub and separate walk-in shower. The 3rd bedroom has 2 wide single beds and a shower in the bathroom. The 4th bedroom on this floor is a double bedroom, also with a shower in the bathroom.

The courtyard garden is paved with stone and has numerous terra cotta pots with flowering and aromatic plants. Open to the courtyard is a wide covered patio with a brick pizza-oven and a BBQ grill. The alcove facing the pool is made into a sheltered dining area with a table and chairs for 10 people. The swimming pool is 60 ft x 12 ft (18 x 4 meters) with a seating ledge underwater. Chaise lounges are lined along the poolside and at the end of the pool is another pergola-covered dining area. The pool water can be heated at extra cost.

The origins of this structure go all the way back to the 9th century when it was built as a watch tower overlooking the pilgrim roads down the valley. It was added on over the centuries, and by the 1950’s it still housed several farming families. Then the building remained empty for a few decades and turned into a ruin, until 1989 when the current owner rescued it and brought it back to life with an extensive rebuilding project using mainly traditional materials.

Nearby towns:
– Monticchiello 1 mile = 1.8km
– Pienza: 6 miles = 10 km
– Montepulciano: 9 miles = 15km
– Siena: 40 miles = 60 km
– Florence: 75 miles = 120 km

  • “ a wonderful time was had by us all at the magnificent Manafiore. The Villa was even more beautiful than in the pictures.  The housekeeper was helpful and we had a couple of excellent dinners prepared by the cook. We loved the pool and dining areas outside, and that stunning view! ”

Reggello

Reggello

Medium Moderate

You've come to the right place: an extraordinary mid-sized villa, having everything you need in any season, and with some of Tuscany's prettiest towns only minutes away.

about

Casa Reggello is located amidst gently rolling hills and organic farms in southern Tuscany, between the towns of Pienza and Montepulciano. Keeping to the use of original building materials, the restoration maintained the style of the farm and its ancient atmosphere.

As was typical at Tuscan farms, the ground floor was originally the barn for animals, while people lived upstairs. With the transformation of the farmhouse into a villa, the vaulted and open ground floor became the spacious sunny living space it is today. One end of the ground floor is occupied by a country kitchen with a fireplace, this room is very bright thanks to its five windows that look out into the garden, that you can access thru two glass doors. A wide archway leads into the long living room with two sofa seating groups, the dining table with 8 chairs and a traditional fireplace. A gracious bedroom occupies the other end, with two full-sized beds and a bathroom complete with shower.

Internal stairway made of ancient stones takes you to the upper floor where you find three bedrooms: one with two single beds and en-suite bathroom with shower; another bedroom with queen size bed and spacious en-suite bathroom with tub and separate large shower; the third bedroom with queen size bed, bath-tub and sink in the room, and separate en-suite toilet room.

Villa La Chiusa

La Chiusa is a private villa in Lucca built starting in the 15th century. Having been in the family forever, the current owner has lovingly transformed it into a fully air-conditioned, 6-bedroom, luxury mansion.

Location just over 1 mile (2 km) outside the walled city of Lucca brings all of Tuscany within your reach, with downtown Florence about 1 hour away by car or train, and half an hour to Pisa and the beaches of the Riviera.

You would enjoy the elegantly furnished living areas that open out to the terrace by the garden. Ancient stone walls surround the vast park-like grounds planted with persimmon fruit trees, roses, wisterias and grapevines. The sunny terrace is lined by terracotta planters with a profusion of geraniums. The outdoor ‘al fresco’ seating group is a pleasant setting for coffee in the morning and drinks in the evening. Inside the private garden is a 26 foot diameter newly built, round, in-ground swimming pool complete with chaise lounges for your enjoyment in the summertime.

Lucca was made famous and wealthy centuries ago by the silk trade. The artist-owner continues this tradition with a private drapery studio with historical fabrics on the property. The owner keeps the gardener’s cottage for herself; this separate house is not easily seen from the villa.

The high quality interiors of La Chiusa include many antiques and period pieces, very skilfully decorated to make the villa feel like a home, not like a museum. On the ground floor are the public rooms which open out to the garden terrace. The living room has a baby grand piano and numerous armchairs and comfortable sofas for a large gathering. The separate study has a sofa-group and fireplace; amenities include a large screen satellite TV, CD-stereo, and collection of travel books and magazines.

From the living room you continue into a large dining room, an intimate breakfast room, and the fully equipped country-style kitchen. Here you also find a separate laundry room with washer and dryer. 2 bedrooms are also on this ground level; one double bedroom and one bedroom with twin beds. Each has a bathroom with shower.

The grand staircase brings you up to the second level and into the most elegant sitting room, the Salone. From the Salone you enter the bedrooms. This second level has 4 double bedrooms, two of which are furnished in period style with frescoed walls and ceilings that are pictured here. Of the 3 bathrooms, one has a large double Jacuzzi whirlpool. All 3 bathrooms have showers.

The full-time care-taker has an apartment on the attic floor of the villa with private access. House-keeping is included in your rental and a professional chef and sommelier are available for special dinners. Ask us about custom-made programs for cooking lessons, wine tasting, art, architecture, history and guided touring.

  • “ Dear Zak--our stay at Villa Monte was excruciatingly perfect--the landscape and everything involved--people, food, villa, pool were all as beautiful as they could possibly be, such a remarkable place. Picking ripe figs off the trees for a snack was a pretty incredible experience in itself for us New Yorkers. Thanks, Carol ”

Impressive and welcoming, Villa Giulio is the result of the total restoration of this former hunting lodge of the lords of Castello di Proceno, few miles away. Sitting on a hillside in the middle of an area dear to the Etruscans, the house looks out over a vast sweep of Tuscan countryside, where vestiges of Etruscan culture still exist.  About a 5 minute drive from the house is a village with a grocery store and a typical trattoria inside the medieval walls, while just a few steps outside in a newer area is, quite unexpectedly, a Michelin starred restaurant.

Villa Giulio has 2 full floors with high ceilings and 400 sq meters of living area (about 4,400 sq.ft). On the ground floor is a very large living room with fireplace, a fully equipped kitchen, a breakfast room, a bathroom with shower for the disabled, and adjacent to the dining room, doors open outside to a wide covered portico with fireplace, barbecue and large dining table. Also on the ground floor is a separate 1-bedroom apartment with study, bathroom with shower, and dining room with a small kitchen.

Stairs lead from the entrance hall to the upper floor; there’s a lounge with a large fireplace, 3 double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom that can be made into a double, a study with a mezzanine floor with 2 single beds suitable for children, and 4 bathrooms from which 2 have a bath and 2 have a shower.

The house is impeccably furnished and offers a series of amenities. The bathrooms includes bidets and hair dryers. Each bedroom has a combination safe for guests’ use, and all windows have mosquito screens.  There is also a washing machine at the back near the kitchen.

A short walk up a few steps and thru a grove of trees takes you to the private 6 x 12 meter swimming pool. At the end of the pool is a covered terrace, a changing room cabana and an outdoor shower. There’s also a delightful table and seats under the trees. A separate storage building by the entry gate holds the garden furniture in the winter.

The property is surrounded by 5 acres (2 hectares) of fenced-in grounds and is reached by a 5-minute drive along a 2-mile dirt track from the village of Trevinano on the border of Tuscany and Lazio.

With a commanding view over central Tuscan countryside, Arpicella is a rustic style vacation home for 4 people just 1 km walk from Pienza, the jewel of southern Tuscany. Situated in large park-like gardens with ancient oaks and cypress trees,  the farm’s ground level features a covered dining area with wood-burning oven and BBQ facilities. The upper floor has a large living area with sofa group, kitchenette, table and chairs, TV and a massive fireplace. From here a corridor leads to a dining room, a spacious modern shower room, and 2 bedrooms; one has twin beds while the other offers a king sized bed.

Arpicella is in Val d’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site with 16 km drive from Montepulciano and many small towns nearby. This region was made famous from Dante’s writings on to modern day movies such as the Gladiator and the English Patient.

An easy walk to the famous town of Pienza is also a big asset.

Pienza is our favorite Tuscan town, so the close proximity was a plus. Your restaurant recommendations were invaluable.  Again, thanks for your help. We would recommend Tuscanhouse.com without reservation. ”

The Villa of Corsano is situated in one of the most picturesque areas of Tuscany, at the start of the Sienese “Crete”, that famed landscape of wide, clay hills just South of Siena, a continual source of inspiration for artists over the centuries. Used on several occasions already by artists, photographers, historians and cooks for specialist courses, and the subject of prestigious coffee table books, this wonderful villa and its caring, professional owners and staff, are internationally renowned.

Approached by an impressive, cypress-lined avenue, the villa itself dates from the 16th. Century and the estate was once one of the most important in the whole district of Siena, dating back more than 1,000 years. A brother and sister, whose family bought it in the nineteenth Century, share the estate. The parkland at the rear has rare trees, grottoes and remains of a 19th. C. aviary, and the whole property is a delight, with panoramic views as far as Siena. The villa has luminous rooms recalling a splendid past, with the addition of high quality kitchens and bathrooms. There are extensive gardens, with tall shady trees on one side. At the rear of the villa there are beautiful, flower filled antique urns, and wooden tables and cushioned chairs provide plenty of possibilities for relaxing. This side, too, is well lit so that it may easily be used for dining, music etc.

At the front is a wide lawn with long box and laurel hedges on either side. Beyond these lawns, the large swimming pool has beautiful views through olive groves and gardens across to Siena and the rolling cornfields of the Crete. The former poultry houses near the pool have become charming changing rooms, a barbecue, shower room and sun furniture store, while pergolas provide shade on the patio and pool surround. Around and beyond the pool an extensive olive grove forms a lovely setting for walks and games.

On three floors, there are delightful reception rooms and a shower room on the ground floor. The enormous dining room has reputably the largest fireplace in Tuscany and comfortably seats 25 to 30 people. There is an elegant drawing room with a vaulted ceiling and walls entirely covered with “Trompe l’oueil” paintings of exotic flowers and plants, birds and oriental tents. French windows from this room open onto the parkland to the rear of the villa. Another reception room has French windows to the gardens. The kitchen has first class professional equipment, including a food processor, dishwasher, washing machine and microwave. There is a large double bedroom on the ground floor. From the entrance hall there is access to the colonnaded courtyard of the villa, part of which may be used by guests and provides a delightful place for meals in spring and autumn.

On the first floor, the former ballroom is now an enormous double bedroom with frescoed ceiling, tall windows, a huge Murano chandelier, sofas, chairs and a games table. It has its own shower room. Another double bedroom, with its own bathroom, is frescoed by Dario Neri, a famous Sienese painter. A twin bedroom with a bathtub and a wash basin in the room, a bedroom with a fireplace, three single four-poster beds and a shower room en suite, and another double bedroom with a shower room complete the accommodation on this floor.

On the top floor, there are two double and two twin bedrooms, a particularly attractive large bathroom, a shower room and a kitchen / sitting- room.

Another part of the villa and other parts of the property belong to the owner’s brother. Guests in those parts of the property use different parts of the gardens and a part of the courtyard, but do not have use of the swimming pool A holiday here is a very special treat; a chance to live in an historic villa in extraordinarily beautiful and peaceful surroundings, at a very short distance from the wonderful city of Siena. Villa Corsano lends itself as well to a very special family holiday as for a film setting or business convention. The aristocratic owner is a charming and hospitable hostess. Her staff are able to take care of your every wish. Her son runs the Corsano Agency, able to arrange cooks, baby sitters, photographers and extra staff to suit the most exacting requisites. He will personally organize guides, shopping trips and courses. His knowledge of this wonderful part of the world and its personalities allows him to arrange personal tours for guests around public and private homes, museums and collections, to create an unique and memorable holiday.

Even with the closeness to Siena, this ancient villa is in a rural setting. If you want 5 star luxury and gold taps, perhaps you’d like to choose one of our newly remodeled villas. But this is a magnificent example of Tuscany from a more luxuriant era when the family had high social position and vast holdings. Today, the owners are there to help you have the most enjoyable vacation.

It’s just a short drive to the farms on the outskirts of medieval Siena where you find Casa Marco in a wonderful location embracing the countryside with olive groves, wheat fields, and large farmhouse villas that sit where the land rises. While this lovely feeling of openness carries over to the property, thanks to the furnished poolside terrace stretching the width of the house, its fenced grounds also give it a sense of protected privacy. Casa Marco is the perfect house for family reunions – not too elegant to feel stiff, yet equipped with all the elements that ensure a relaxed comfortable vacation with space enough for everyone.

Originally built as a barn, Casa Marco’s formal entrance is into a front hallway, while the life at the house happens along the side. From this sweeping terrace two French doors lead into the bright eat-in kitchen and to the living/dining room with a sofa-group and comfortable furnishings, an open fireplace and a dining table that expands to seat up to 10. There are two large double bedrooms and a small single bedroom on this floor, also a bathroom and a shower room. A staircase off the front hall leads up to the upper floor with two double bedrooms, one has an en-suite shower room, a single bedroom and an additional shower room. All bedrooms have colorful bedspreads and good country furniture and all the modern shower rooms are nicely tiled and fitted with folding shower doors, which allow more space and dryer floors.

Out in the well-tended grounds you find generous space for dining, play and relaxation on the spacious terrace with sun-beds and a furnished gazebo that overlooks the pool. Outdoor lighting around the property and in the pool allow you can linger over al fresco dinners and continue to splash the night away. Newly installed on the lower level of the house is a home spa with jacuzzi, sauna and cascading shower that all guarantee a relaxed end to your busy day. And just to make sure, on request, the owner can organize a professional massage on site.

Even with all this relaxed country feel, Casa Marco is only a few minutes from the nearest coffee bar and market and about ten minute drive from the city center. Famous for its Palio horse race and the spectacular shell-shaped piazza Il Campo, Siena was once a strong rival to Florence and a protector of the Via Francigena trail for pilgrims heading to Rome. Siena’s winding streets and gorgeous architecture have survived the ages to delight the modern traveler. Whether you spend hours exploring the city center, follow the trail out to the wine hills, or simply lounge by the pool, this corner of Tuscany is guaranteed to please.

Guests are invited to use the facilities in the Spa on the lower ground level of the villa, and will only be charged for electricity consumed, as indicated on the meter. The pool is not fenced in so please bring a water alarm if you have young children.

The spectacular setting of Villa Cocceto takes in 500 acres of farm land, woods and vineyards. In the 18th century when it was built, Cocceto was a modest sharecropping farmhouse; today it’s reborn as a grand country residence surrounded by a well-known estate producing Super Tuscan wines.

Coccetto sits between high mountains, award-winning vines and a wonderful broad expanse of blue Tuscan sky. Over the hill is the town of Sarteano, convenient for shops and bars and also close by are the medieval hilltop towns of bustling Montepulciano is famous for its Vino Nobile, Pienza with the pope’s palace and other spectacular architecture, and Montalcino at the core of the Brunello wine estates.

The outdoor dining patio seats up to 14 and makes for a superb place to take in the surrounding countryside.

Interiors have been put together by renowned Italian designer Ilaria Miani and are a classic combination of rustic features with modern design that work well to create a superb country home. The six large bedrooms, spread over two floors, are all en suite and come with their own dressing rooms. In addition there are two very comfortable sitting rooms, a dining area that can seat as many as 20 guests and a superbly well-equipped kitchen.

Costa della Luna is a luxurious fully restored home with outdoor terraces, a well tended garden, infinity pool and panoramic views. Located in southern Tuscany, not far from Montepulciano, the highlight of this haven of peace is the pool deck that allows you to embrace the spectacular waves of landscape scenery.

This private villa is surrounded by 3 hectares of olive trees and a large garden of cypresses, pines and the lush green lawns that a well-designed outdoor lighting renders from the dark to lively and bright at night.

The central part of the structure dates from the 16th century, then it was enlarged in 1789 and the recent building works have helped it to rise up like a jewel from the landscaped hillside. The villa has several terraces on different levels where you can relax and dine with views of the surrounding countryside.

The infinity pool is close to home and cleverly designed to be an autonomous space through its multifunctional bar with an automatic ice dispenser. There’s an easily accessible basement to store the cushions and deck chairs. For sport, you’ll have fun with the Boules court adjacent to the pool.

Each of the 5 bedrooms can be arranged with a wide double or 2 large single beds, and on request, the extra children’s room has 4 bunk beds.

From the 4 bathrooms, 2 have both a bathtub and a shower, and 2 have only a shower, while a shower and sink are adjacent to the children’s room.

After the recent remodeling, the villa is now endowed with a large kitchen installed with professional equipment on the ground floor with the possibility to have meals either inside or on the adjoining terrace. A second smaller kitchen with all the facilities remains on the first floor overlooking another dining room that opens to a terrace with lovely views … many guests like to enjoy their breakfast on this terrace. Guests can also gather in the TV lounge.

Another terrace adjoining the master bedroom and with indirect access to the kitchen can be used for dinners overlooking the illuminated garden. All terraces at night have a view of the indirect lights up the most beautiful ancient trees of the garden for a magical effect.

This corner of paradise is located 4 km from Piazze and 7 km from Cetona, with a panoramic view of 360 °, very exceptional, the Val di Chiana and the Cetona Mountain.

This centuries old country villa is centrally located in the beautiful rolling hills near the town of Cetona in south-eastern Tuscany. Cetona is ideally located in south-east corner of Tuscany for touring central Italy, you can easily reach most of Tuscany and Umbria for day-trips. The A1 Autostrada is about 15 minute drive away, and in about 20 minutes in Chiusi is a main-line train station.

This is a very scenic region with famous vineyards, historic hill-towns and large farming valleys with panoramic views. It is classic Tuscany of cypress lined roads and olive groves.
