Siena Countryside Villa - Lovely Tuscany villa with private pool
set in the countryside surrounding Siena
Siena Countryside Villa is an exquisite gem set in rolling Chianti vineyards with views that stretch from Siena into countryside of Tuscany. The interiors are filled with an artful blend of modern and ancient with carefully chosen antiques and discreetly placed modern conveniences. Every detail has been carefully considered and positioned to create an atmosphere of refined elegance, luxury and comfort.
Although the neighbours share the pool with Siena Countryside Villa, the pool is in a separate garden and does not at all intrude on the peace and tranquillity of the private garden attached or the view, which stretches away over rolling Chianti vineyards.
Swimming Pool open from 01 June to 30 September
Accommodation - size 100sqm - sleeps 4 people in 2 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms
One approaches the house from behind and comes around the corner to find a patio that looks on to an unobstructed view and a garden, lovingly planted with lavender, rosemary, olive trees and other local flora. There is also a nice stretch of rolling green lawn. The garden is beautifully manicured and up kept by the estate gardener. Entering the house through the patio doors one steps into a living room with a fireplace and elegant beige sofas, there are antique prints hanging on the walls and an over whelming sense of soothing refinement. There is an antique cabinet with a C.D. player and Satellite television w/English & US channels. This room leads to the open plan Kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped for even the most discerning cooks and fitted out with exquisite majolica tiles and a dishwasher. On this level, discreetly tucked beneath the stairs, there is also a half bathroom with the washing machine. Upstairs one finds 2 bedrooms and a luxurious bath with large soaking tub.
The Villa has been converted from an old hay barn and so the upstairs windows retain memories of this in the very unusual and beautiful terracotta fret work that sits behind the glass, creating both shade and privacy whilst allowing those inside to gaze out at will. The beds are antique Senese wrought iron with the highest quality linens that have been chosen with extreme care, the bathroom is all handmade glazed white tile with heated towel rails and a hairdryer. The master bedroom has a Queen size bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds.
This villa is not suitable for children under 10 or pets. The house has thick stonewalls and is well ventilated on a breezy hilltop and thus stays comfortably cool in summer. For autumn and winter there is central heating throughout. Within the area one can find horse riding, ballooning, and mountain bike hire, wine & olive oil estates open to visit and cooking classes. There is a telephone for making local calls. People wishing to make long distance calls are advised to bring their calling card or cell phone.
Pool and gardens: Approaching the villa you will feel immersed in the green of the countryside surrounding. The garden is a perfectly manicured lawn offering unobstructed views from the patio fully equipped to eat and relax outside. The location also allows undisturbed walks through the vineyards. The neighbours themselves are placed also behind and away, across a small private road and their gardens look in a completely different direction. The feeling is one of seclusion and serenity.
Siena Countryside Villa is perfectly located one hour to Florence and only 20 minutes to Siena. It is conveniently located to also reach San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Arezzo etc. Fifteen minutes away in Rapolano are the spas with hot spring heated pools and fango (mud) treatments.
