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

Reviews

Thank you for your message. I returned last monday from Italy so after a fabulous week we all are home again. As you know, staying there with my family of children and grandchildren was my "sogno Toscano" and we enjoyed our week in the villa very much. We had no opportunity to meet Jacopo because, after his wedding, he and his bride were away for their "luna di miele" But we were given a great welcome by his parents who showed us the house and surroundings. We very much appreciated the big cake on the table on our arrival and the plate tiramisu on the last evening which was a welcome "dolce" after our last dinner. The villa is a dream to spend ones holidays. Every room decorated with great taste. The beautiful garden wonderful kept, to play in for the children and to sit and relax for us. The great views over the Chiana valley, the pool and surroundings. It all made our days. So too much to tell. We have wonderful pictures and even better memories. Certainly we will contact you when we will come to Tuscany another time and are very grateful for your professional help. "Complimenti!!" Would you please be so kind as to give our best regards to the family Menchichi and thank them again for their great hospitality. Thanks.
