Passing through the ground-floor portico into the entrance hallway, you'll enter into the huge living/dining room, crowned by a remarkable vaulted, tiled ceiling. The space is informally divided into a sitting area with sofa and armchairs round the large stonework fireplace; a dining area with an 8/10-seater wooden refectory table; and an open-plan fitted kitchen at the far end of the room, separated off from the rest by a massive dark-wood sideboard with marble worktop. This section is fully equipped with modern appliances. Upstairs you access the first-floor bedrooms, with their typically Tuscan terracotta-tiled floors, whitewashed walls, wrought-iron bedsteads and matching soft furnishings.

The lawns of the pool terrace are enclosed by a hedge, beyond which extend vineyards and the valley, stretching out to the gentle hills on the opposite horizon. Pots of colourful petunias dotted around the lawn complete the idyllic scene.
