Casa Ida is a delightful independent house that completed restoration in 2005. The property, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, sits on the side of a hill from which it dominates the countryside stretching from San Gimignano to the soft valleys typical of the Chianti Fiorentino. The town of Tavarnelle at 1.5 kms offers all shops, restaurants and facilities including bus line to Firenze (30 kms) and Siena (35 kms). This is useful for those who do not want to depend on automobiles to get around. San Gimignano is at 25 kms, Volterra is at 48 kms, the seaside of Castiglioncello is at 120 kms. The Firenze airport is at 30 kms and Pisa airport is at 100 kms. The central location of the property makes it easy to reach the places of artistic and historical interest of Tuscany.

Casa Ida is located inside a parcel of land that measures 1 hectare. It is entirely fenced in to afford maximum privacy and the owners cultivate vines, olives and fruit trees on it. They live in a separate house with its own independent and totally separate access about 20 meters away in a raised position with respect to Casa Ida. Their house is hidden from view by a terraced, hanging garden. The owners are unobtrusive, but willing to assist guests with advice on local events and they can also sell their wine and olive oil. They speak English.

The 6 X 13 meter swimming pool (depth runs from 1.2 meters to 2.00 meters), is situated on a raised plateau with respect to Casa Ida, and about 20 meters from it. The pool and pool shower are shared with the owners. The pool offers a wonderful view over the surrounding countryside. On one side of the pool, near the steps, are four hydro massage jets. The lawn and cotto solarium terraces that surround the pool are well-equipped with garden furniture and there is a walkway that runs around the pool perimeter in Teak wood that prevents one from slipping. To one side of the pool is a brick barbecue for exclusive guest use. The guests at Casa Ida reach the pool up a graceful external staircase. The owners reach the pool from above, down a stone staircase.

Private access to Casa Ida is from a gate that opens onto the private driveway that leads to the house’s private car park. As it is built into the side of a hill, the house develops on two levels with several entrances which are accessed from the meticulously kept lawns that surround it. Both levels offer furnished garden spaces and are totally private. Main private entrance is from the lawn on the car park side of the house.

Up a low step is a hall with door on the right to a service WC. To the right is an open plan dining room with fireplace and kitchen corner. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas range, electric oven, dishwasher and fridge with freezer. Two huge windows, one fixed and the other with a security system that opens it, provide a complete contact with the outside, bringing the scenery into the house. Two smaller glass doors in the dining area open onto an external balcony that leads to the front garden. This room has marble floors.

To the left of the entrance hall, a sliding glass door opens, down one step, into the living room with satellite TV. This room also has large windows that look out over the rear garden. It also has sliding glass doors that open completely providing direct access to the front garden (on the same side as the entrance). A wall and the ceiling are done in wood and the floors are all in marble and this room is provided with air conditioning.

From the living room, a flight of stairs leads down to the sleeping section of the house. At the bottom of the stairs is a glass door that opens onto the rear garden. A hallway continues from here and turns a corner, leading to two doors on the left that open into a twin bedded room (the beds can be connected on request), and into a double bedroom (fixed bed) with glass doors that open again onto the rear garden.

At the end of the hall is the door to the spacious L-shaped bathroom that offers washbasin and shower stall in the first leg of the L, and bidet and WC in the second leg of the L. At the end of this section of the bathroom is a sliding door that provides access to the laundry room with washing machine. The floors in the bedrooms are in wood parquet. The bedrooms have mosquito screens. The house is provided with WIFI.

Impeccably furnished, it is comfortable and luminous and the ideal house for honeymooners. A baby cot and highchair are provided and electricity, central heating (in cold season) and firewood for the fireplace and for the barbecue are payable on consumption. Typical Tuscan dinners can be organised if requested at time of booking.
