The property, featuring 5,000 square meters of living space extensive gardens and exteriors, channels the Tuscan life that influences our imagination. The luxury of privacy, the enchanting surroundings, the proximity to several small villages with restaurants, bakeries, markets, artisan shops, hidden little churches and monuments, not to mention Siena with such a rich artistic heritage, make this villa unique.
Retaining original features and combining the best of Italian craftsmanship with luxurious and timeless furnishings, this is an outstanding home away from home in undoubtedly one of the most beautiful regions of the world, Tuscany.
A manicured lawn and large shade trees introduce this two-story villa, located minutes from Buonconvento and less than an hour from Montalcino. The home design, approached with research in the historical context, results in a new-classic style with quality washed wooden boards and resin/terracotta floors. Vaulted wood-beamed ceilings lend a rustic yet contemporary feel to the interiors. Elements of classic Tuscan grand residential architecture, such as a silhouette defined by clear, square blocks, are combined with contemporary touches, like an open space gym with views over the surrounding valley.
The property can accommodate up to 12 adults and 2 children (2-9 years old), or two extra guests best used for a total of 12 guests.
There are 12 metres to reach the house from the parking spot. There are no stairs to get to the main door of the property, which features 2 levels The swimming pool is accessed through 12 stairs (lower level).
Several close-by restaurants and trattorias serve organic, local cuisine. We recommend the traditional La Porta di Sotto nestled inside the nearest town Buonconvento. For those who prefer a local-chic atmosphere, the one star Michelin Osteria Perillà. Sneak to Biondi Santi for a wine tasting in Montalcino. We also recommend the traditional La Bottega del 30, in a tiny village in the middle of some of the finest terroir in the Classic Chianti region and it is in a rustic stone farmhouse which gives the feeling of dining in someone's home. There is no written menu and the chef will explain the options of the 3 set course herself. Gourmands won't miss the Michelin starred Arnolfo, surrounded by rolling hills, cypress trees and medieval fortifications, with a delightful panoramic terrace for summer dining.
Tuscany has great energy that comes from mixing history with so many different people from all over the world. And, as well as the restaurants, shopping, and nearby nature, people’s perceptions are also mesmerised of what a culturally rich area this is in terms of museums, architecture, and art.
