This is a beautifully restored 7 bedroom villa with private pool sleeping up to 14 guests. With plenty of additional services available on request, it is a base where you can truly put your feet up and enjoy what is effectively hotel style services at a self catering holiday villa.
The villa has been completely restored to a high standard. There are 7 bedrooms in total in the main villa. 6 of the bedrooms have kingsize double beds with comfortable memory foam mattresses whilst the last bedroom has 2 single beds. All are fitted with quality Italian cotton fabrics. All bedrooms have their own bathroom. Most of the bathrooms are fitted with showers but there is also one bath tub within the property, which is helpful for those travelling with young children. All bedrooms have air conditioning to ensure a good nights sleep. Aged oak floors, travertine marble bathrooms and additional touches give a welcoming and luxurious feel. The property also boasts a fully equipped kitchen, dining room and living room on the ground floor as well as a second living area on the first floor which leads out to a terrace.

There is also a microwave, kettle, toaster, coffee machine and dishwasher. For those staying for a long period, there is a washing machine and dryer for you to use. The living area has TV with Satellite channels as well as DVD player, whilst for those who prefer to play games than watch TV, there are a selection of board games and toys to play with. There is also an IPOD docking station. For those visiting in the cooler months, there are two pellet fireplaces for guests to enjoy, one on the ground floor and one on the first floor, both creating a delightfully warm and welcoming atmosphere. Outside, there is a private swimming pool (open 1 May - 31 October), set in extensive gardens ensuring absolute privacy, peace and quiet for guests staying here. The pool, which is lit at night, has a depth of between 1.3 and 2.0 metres. There is a poolside pergola equipped with table and chairs set below wisteria, ideal for al fresco dining, as well as additional seating throughout the garden. The pool area is fenced for added peace of mind. There is also a table tennis table outside for guests enjoyment and for keen foodies, you are more than welcome to help yourself to any of the fresh fruit and vegetables lovingly grown on site by the villa owner. A complimentary welcome dinner is offered to all guests in the on site restaurant. This restaurant is reserved exclusively for the use of the guests at the villa. During your stay, there will be no external guests. It's ideal, meaning you can have the restaurant all to yourself, and, after your dinner, can simply wander back to the villa without having to clear up or to have the lingering smells of the cooking in the house.
The property is just 5 minutes from the village of San Casciano dei Bagni and the thermal spa there. It is about an hour and a half from both Rome and Florence and close to the Val d'Orcia, Montepulciano and Siena. It's also ideal for anyone looking to explore not just Tuscany but also Umbria and Lazio which are within easy reach. The owners live nearby and are on hand to help with anything you need during your stay. They are very discreet and if you prefer to relax in privacy you will be left to do do so. But their location close to the villa means that they can provide some fantastic additional services including the option of a half or full board service, cookery classes, tastings or just one-off meals. They are completely flexible to suit your needs. Rates include linen and towels as well as a daily cleaning service of 2 hours (except Sundays). Towels and linen are changed mid way through your stay on a Wednesday for those guests staying for a week. They are also changed every Saturday for those staying for 2 weeks or more. A toiletry set is also provided on arrival as well as a small welcome basket of food. A complimentary welcome dinner is also provided on the night of your arrival. Please note that there are some additional costs: Air conditioning is payable locally based on consumption at a rate of 0.70 euros per KW (average weekly costs are between 250 and 300 euros), whilst heating is also charged based on usage at a rate of 7 euros per cubic metre. Should guests wish the pool to be heated, this is possible but will be an additional charge and must be requested in advance. Please ask for more details. Finally, there is a mandatory tourist tax of 1 euro per person per night.
A note from Jo
This is a great property for those looking for the best of both worlds - the space and privacy of a self catering property with the optional services more associated with a hotel stay, such as full or half board catering. If required, we can also provide a number of other services at this villa such as cookery classes, pizza or pasta parties, tastings and organised BBQs. We can also help with tours and excursions, ticket sales and bookings, the services of a driver, bike hire and Vespa rentals. In other words, this really is a place where you can just sit back, relax and let someone else do the hard work for you! Please ask for more details.
