Vilal Dolce Colline - Rustic villa in Tuscany with pool
with views over the Chiana valley
Villa Dolce Colline in Tuscany provides more than just a touch of distinctive style and class. It comprises all modern comforts, while retaining many original Tuscan design features and elegant traditional furnishings which include terracotta-tiled, beamed ceilings; tiled floors; white- or colour-washed walls and working, wood-burning fireplaces. The choice of traditional Tuscan dark-wood furniture, glass-fronted dressers and wrought-iron, canopied bedframes remains in keeping with this architectural context.
For garden and nature lovers, the setting of this property is really extra-special too, enclosed as it is by lush, meticulously tended lawns. These are dotted with a whole variety of mature, shade-giving, native trees and bordered by colourful flowering plants, which also decorate the spectacular pool-terrace below. From here the extensive, unimpeded views over the fertile Val di Chiana (Chiana Valley) farmland are simply unique.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL
Lemon trees in large ceramic pots line the pathway to the back garden where a spacious, manicured lawn is shaded by the leafy canopies of magnificent trees. In one secluded garden corner hangs a hamac, in another are arranged a little table and some chairs. Proceeding down to the far end, you will find the pizza-oven and barbeque, sheltered under a loggia. Next to this, on a raised, tiled terrace, is a lovely, wrought-iron-framed gazebo equipped with table and chairs to eat outside whilst enjoying idyllic, uninterrupted views over the fields of the Chiana Valley. On the opposite horizon, the medieval hilltop town of Montepulciano is also visible.
Wooden steps now beckon you down to the lower grass pool-terrace. The tiled pool (14m x 6m) surround is equipped with sunloungers and sunshades and a little outbuilding houses changing-room, shower and toilet facilities, as well as a fitness-room. A separate, small jacuzzi pool is located next to the main pool. Garden lights serve to illuminate the grounds and poolside area at night, if required.
Swimming pool open 01/05 to 30/09
