Villa rentals in Italy, Tuscany - This charming country house, completely restored and renovated, sleeps 12 and sits within a beautiful, private estate. Tucked away in the Chianti region, the heart of Tuscany, it lies between Florence and Siena, halfway between Montespertoli and San Casciano, and just 30 minutes away from Florence.
The house is secluded - 700 metres from the main road - and is accessible only via a private driveway. Its isolated and dominant location (surrounded by 12 hectares of private grounds) guarantees tranquility, privacy and a stunning panoramic view of the gently rolling hills. Villa Virginia enchants all of its guests, as much with its outstanding location as with its well thought out interior.
In 2003 this old farmhouse house was renovated down to the last detail. Both the exterior and interiors have been raised to a very high standard by its owner, and every detail of the restoration has been carried out with respect for both nature and the Tuscan heritage. The house is beautifully decorated throughout with terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and beamed ceilings. The property owner - a decorator - designed the interior with select objects and carefully chosen furnishings ... as well as great taste, loving care and a sharp eye. The exceptionally light, sandy terracotta tiles that cover the floors in all the rooms, the pale blue windows and doors, the soft pastels of the furnishings, the natural-coloured fabrics and cushions paint a harmonious picture and create an atmosphere of light, brightness and freshness throughout the house.
The villa offers accommodation for 12, in 6 bedrooms with 6 full bathrooms. The bedrooms are attractively furnished with four-poster beds and enjoy a beautiful view of the surrounding countryside. Each of the six bedrooms is adjoined by its own private bathroom, decorated with old mirror frames and antique lamps. The upper bedrooms all have air-conditioning, combining charm and tradition with contemporary comfort. The living areas are colourful and furnished with high-quality fabrics, antiques, linens and tableware. The large, state-of-the-art kitchen leads onto a terrace, where a large loggia overlooking the garden and the swimming pool keeps things cool in summer and provides shade for al fresco meals.
The ground floor has an entrance hall, living room with open fireplace, living room-kitchen, dining room, studio, bedroom with two single beds and en-suite bath (shower), twin bedroom, bathroom with shower, and a laundry. The first floor has three double bedrooms with four poster beds and en suite bathrooms (two with bathtubs, the other with shower), and a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom (shower).
