Leccetino is a private hillside villa near Pienza in Tuscany and sleeps 6 people. You might feel like entering a secret location while driving down the short tree lined track to Leccetino. The structure tucks itself securely into the hillside and is surrounded by olive trees. The wide terrace directs your view over a spellbinding valley, up to Castelmuzio and the monastery of Santa Anna. This is a spectacular masonry villa, made with stones dug up from the ground on this terraced property. The owner, who is a renowned Norwegian architect, kept careful eye over the reconstruction just a few of years ago.
3 bedroom Villa with Pool in Tuscany
The original small farmhouse has cleverly connected with the adjacent barn and therefore makes a pleasing residence with interesting details.

Due to all 3 bedrooms having their own en-suite bathrooms, this is a most desirable villa for 3 couples.
Main Floor of Leccetino Tuscany Rental Villa
The main bedroom is on the arrival level, just next to the entrance, with a walk-in closet, large bathroom with shower and a/c. The matrimonial (between king and queen) size bed is positioned for a wonderful view towards the Orcia Valley. You also find the large and well equipped kitchen and dining area on this same level. These blend smoothly into the spacious living room with a sofa seating group. Consequently, all doors open out onto the wide terrace and the poolside garden.
Outside on the Terrace in Tuscany
The terrace has a covered dining area with a large table and a group of arm chairs. Spend your evenings here cooking on the BBQ and dining al fresco. You will certainly enjoy the beautiful scenery from this terrace. You can access both the terrace and the garden directly from the living area. Take a short stroll past the olive trees and a bank of lavenders to the poolside. Sun lounges, a shower and shade trees, are all there for your enjoyment on this sunny hillside. In addition, the pool itself has solar heating, should it be needed.
Lower Level of the Villa
Take steps down from the terrace to 2 separate and very private bedroom suites. Both have large closets and bathrooms with walk-in showers. One has a matrimonial size bed, while the other has twin beds that can also be made together. You have splendid views across the valley with both bedrooms opening out to the lower garden terrace. These 2 bedrooms are built into the hillside and don’t have a/c since they remain naturally cool under the terrace. Fans are provided to assist with airflow. A well equipped laundry room is also on this level, complete with washer and dryer. And finally, you find three bicycles in a small cellar; these are for the use of guests to explore the local villages.
Amazing views of Pienza and Montalcino
You will enjoy amazing views from this sizable terrace over the surrounding valleys out to Pienza and Montalcino. And most of all, Monte Amita is in the distance forming the back drop.
