Beautiful Villa obtained from the restoration of a typical Sienese brick farmhouse. The property completed restoration in 2003 and is close to a small hamlet that can be reached on foot that offers a bar and restaurant. All shops, facilities and railroad station are at 3 kms. Montalcino is at 12 kms, Siena is at 23 kms, Firenze is at 85 kms and there is a golf course about an hour's drive away. The property is entirely fenced in to afford maximum privacy and is accessed through a wrought iron gate with electronic key.

Next to the house is a parking space that can host 3/4 automobiles. To one side of the main Villa is a separate structure with wood-burning oven for baking bread and pizza, while in the garden at the rear of the Villa is the private 13 X 5.5 meter swimming pool with electric sliding cover that helps to keep the pool warm throughout the night. Near the pool is a separate barn, which is entirely self-contained. The garden at the rear of the Villa offers a wonderful view of the fields and hills. There is a gardener who has regular access to the grounds and pool for maintenance. 

Main entrance to the Villa is up two steps into an entrance hall with arches that are fitted with panoramic glass doors. Inside are two symmetrical doors. The one on the left opens into a laundry room with washer/dryer, sink, ironing equipment and cleaning equipment. The one on the right opens into a ground floor hallway. To the right in the entrance hall are travertine steps leading to the first floor. The hallway has two doors: one opens into a service WC and the second opens into a utilities closet that remains closed. There is a table in this hallway with telephone/internet access.

Through the hallway is the spacious open-plan living dining room that is divided into three separate sections by huge brick arches. At the extreme right of this room is a sitting area with stereo with CD player, fireplace and door to the outside. The middle section hosts a traditional living room with library. The section on the left is where the formal dining room is located.
There is a glass door in this section that opens outside onto a huge covered loggia (60 sqm) with arches at either end: one arch leads to the garden on the pool side, while the other leads to the front of the house. This loggia is equipped with large table and benches and is ideal for enjoying one's meals in the cool summer evenings. One side of this loggia is furnished with informal rattan garden furniture. Back in the formal dining room, a second door opens into the kitchen, which, in turn, also has a door opening out onto the loggia. The kitchen is extremely functional and fully equipped with restaurant size gas range and grill, huge electric oven, American fridge with icemaker and freezer, and dishwasher. The ground floor boasts Umbrian cotto floors, vaulted ceilings with the original brickwork, and walls tinted with warm pastel colours. The Villa has a very efficient system of air conditioning that is independent for each room in the Villa. 

The first floor is reached by the double ramp of travertine steps from the entrance hall. At the top of the steps, through a door is the spacious living room with open-hearth fireplace, satellite TV with DVD and card table. Originally, this room was the kitchen of the farmhouse and has high ceilings with wood beams and the original cotto floor has been preserved. To the right of the fireplace through a small archway is a hall with doors to a double bedroom and to a complete bathroom with double washbasins and bathtub with incorporated shower stall.

To the left of the fireplace, a door opens into a hallway. This hallway leads to a double bedroom, to a spacious complete bathroom also with double washbasins, bathtub and shower stall, and to a twin bedded room. All these rooms are also tinted with warm pastel colours. To the left of the living room is another hall with two doors: one is to a single bedroom and the second is to a complete bathroom with shower stall. There is an intercom system that allows guests on the first floor to communicate with those on the ground floor. 

The separate barn measures 55 sqm and has maintained its original characteristics intact with the grillwork on the windows: it develops entirely on the ground floor. Private entrance is into the living/dining room with satellite TV and single sofa bed with second extractible bed. There is a telephone extension in this living room also. Through an open passageway on the left of the living room is the kitchen with panoramic window facing the pool. The kitchen is fully equipped with gas range, electric oven, fridge and dishwasher.

A door in the living room opens into the double bedroom (the bed can be transformed into twins on request). A door in the bedroom opens into the complete bathroom with shower stall. A second door in the bedroom opens outside. Again, the floors are in cotto, there are wood beams in the ceilings and the rooms are tinted in warm pastels. 

The restoration work on the Villa and the barn was executed with maximum care taken to preserve as much as possible of the original materials. The furnishings are comfortable and present a combination of modern and antique pieces. The Villa offers airconditioning throughout, 2 baby cots, high chair and box. Maid service is included in the price for three hours daily from Monday to Friday. Additional hours can be arranged at a cost of 13 Euros per hour. Air conditioning is also included in the price, while heating is charged at 300 Euros per week together with firewood. A cook is available on request.
