Both buildings are beautifully constructed using stone, wooden beams and with arched ceilings whilst the decor is in neutral, pastel tones. The overall feel is authentic Tuscan. The larger, main villa, measures over 450 square metres. Guests enter into an entrance hall which leads on to a spacious, well-equipped kitchen which in turn leads to a dining area. The rest of the ground floor is an open plan living area where you'll find a built in bar, comfortable sofas and a grand piano. There is also a small WC on this floor.
