Villa overview - owner's description
This ancient complex includes an old stone country house and a building which was originally a medieval fort dating back to the eleventh century. The complex is located in a beautiful position in the Chianti hills, in a charming natural environment which is famous around the world for its beauty. This is the ideal location for a relaxing holiday and a good starting point for visiting Tuscany, especially the famous Chianti region, the cities of art Florence (45 km) and Siena (30 km) and the southern part of the region with the renowned towns of Cortona (40 km) and Arezzo (30 km), which have ancient origins dating back to Etruscan times. From this area you can also easily reach the nearby region Umbria and Lake Trasimeno. These two buildings belong from a very long time to the owner's family and are part of a farm of 300 hectares. Over the years they have been restored with care and attention to details and turned into a charming holiday accommodation. The buildings are surrounded by a wide open space of about 20,000 m² where there are traces of ancient walls of medieval origin dating back to the 11th or 12th century, which are still protected by the authority of Belle Arti. The property is now equipped with all modern comforts, including an outdoor swimming pool equipped with parasols, a wrought iron gazebo, deck-chairs, a built-in barbecue, and large areas with garden furniture, ideal for a pleasant outdoor stay and outdoor dining. One of the houses is from the 17th century and has on the ground floor a large entrance hall with large living room, which is divided by arches into three rooms, access to the garden, a billiard room and a dining room with access to the outdoor area. The other building, originally a convent enclosed by medieval walls, offers a large living room with fireplace as well as an equipped kitchen where a party of 22 people can enjoy staying and eating together. Both houses have been carefully furnished with rustic furniture combined with antiques thus increasing the charm and special atmosphere of this house where you will spend an unforgettable holiday in relaxation and full privacy. In one of the two buildings it is still possible to use the old wood-burning oven which was used for making bread. Large private parking.

Frequently asked questions
When do I receive directions to the villa and key collection information?
Directions and details on how to collect the keys will be emailed to you after you have paid for the booking in full. You will receive full details about your booking including directions to the property and a booking voucher that you need to hand over to the property manager when you receive the keys. In some instances you may need to collect the keys from the property manager’s office or some other location which is not the actual property you have booked to stay in. Please note that the agent provides us with the GPS co-ordinates in the travel directions and we communicate these to you; you should contact the property manager if these are unclear.
Bed sizes / bedrooms
The exact dimensions will vary from property to property but the agent has specified that bed sizes are as follows:
- A single bed is typically 70cm to 85 cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
- A double bed is typically 140cm to 180cm wide and 180cm to 190cm deep.
- A “grand lit” is a European double bed, suitable for couples, and can be smaller than the usual UK or American doubles. It is typically 130cm wide but in some instances may be wider; it is approximately 180cm to 190cm deep.
A bunk bed is two single beds, one on top of another. Some properties also have pull-out beds, sofa beds and/or bed chairs; in a few properties the bed can be low in a wooden frame on the floor. The beds often have terry cloth sheet mattress protectors to protect the mattresses; please use them with the bed linen.
Some properties may have a loft as a bedroom: this is usually an open room at the top of the house with sloping walls and mattresses on a low bed or on the floor itself. You need to climb a ladder to reach this room. Lofts are very popular with children but may not be suitable for adults or elderly guests.
If a property has an annexe then it will typically be a building attached to the main property or a small self-contained building. Annexes often have no central heating.
Please note that bedrooms in holiday rentals are usually not that large; you should refer to the floor plan to get a sense of size.
Quality rating: four stars. The agent rates this as a well-equipped holiday property with good furniture and a higher than normal specification.
What are the consumption costs for electricity, gas, water etc.?
You will need to pay for the energy and water you use during your stay of which electricity is usually the most significant cost. Charges can be based on a fixed per day rate or by the amount of energy used (e.g. kilowatt hours for electricity). We can’t give you a definite figure but as a rough guide you should expect to pay €10 per day for a two bedroom apartment and €20 per day for a 4 bedroom house in the summer months. Please note: air-conditioning is the biggest factor in any bill; if you leave it on all day and open the windows to let in some warm air when the room gets too cold then your electricity bill will soar. Again these cost estimates are a crude rule of thumb and are for guidance only.
Your local agent will advise you of the extra consumption costs when you arrive; these can include electricity, water, heating, gas, telephone calls, internet usage and any tourist taxes where applicable.
