Beautiful holiday villa in the heart of Tuscany with private pool522
This beautiful holiday home lies right in the heart of Tuscany on the outskirts of the small village of Rapolano Terme, famous over hundreds of years for the benefits of the warm out-door pools of the natural spas and set amid the characteristic hills of the Sienese countryside, known as the "crete senesi" (clay soil) and famous for its travertine quarries, the medieval villages and the prestigious wines.
The property has been rescued by restoring an old brick furnace and thanks to a patient and careful restoration, it has been transformed into an enchanting and comfortable villa, preserving many of the ancient architectural elements, such as the wide brick arches, the vaults, the ceilings with old wooden beams and the travertine stone of the outside walls. The kitchen is very cozy and full of light; you can enjoy your breakfast here or just outside under the pergola, on the veranda or by the pool.
The garden is equipped with all facilities for outdoor dining and with the barbecue. The swimming pool with a charming waterfall and an outdoor shower (12 x 6m) is set at the highest point of the garden with an enchanting view of the beautiful surrounding countryside.
Access through 150m of dirt road. PLEASE NOTE: A busy street passes about 150 m from the house.
