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.
The wide grass lawn slopes gently down to the poolside with a panoramic view out to Montepulciano. At the pool terrace is a canopy for shade and a group of sun chairs. Beside the pool terrace you have an outdoor shower.
From the kitchen you step into a portico that has a traditional wood oven available to make pizza and home-made bread. Attached to this portico is a wide wisteria covered pergola which is your outdoor dining room with lovely views over to the pool and beyond. To assist with preparing dinners, you are welcome to help yourself to the kitchen garden planted with herbs and vegetables. Here you find the barbecue for grilling outdoors.
Everything you want in any season is here. If you like to cook and eat at home, the kitchen is large, light and well equipped. The large dining table is perfect for a group enjoying long evenings over great local wines. The owner is charming and helpful, making this a place to return to.
Amenities include a laundry at a basement beside the kitchen, covered parking for several cars, wi-fi Internet connection at the Villa and poolside too, satellite TV, hair dryer and a kit of artisan natural soaps in each bathroom, land-line telephone with calls paid separately.
