Near the delightful village of Pienza, surrounded by the sublime greenery of Val d’Orcia, there is a beautiful villa, which welcomes its guests in an exclusive atmosphere of familiarity and peace.
The house is part of the natural surrounds and is inseparable from them.
The countryside is part of the villa. The elegant property, situated on the top of a hill, with 6 bedrooms and ensuite bathrooms, dominates the surrounding area and offers a magnificent panorama over the Tuscan hills and a 360 degree view over Pienza, which seems to be within reach.
All the different parts of the villa are rich with Tuscan tradition. This sensation is so strong that it seems that you can even smell the aroma of coffee accompanied by the inviting odor of a soft cake straight out of the oven of the owner, who is happy to receive the guests to whom he has left his corner of paradise.
The villa is perfect for big groups of people, who love the stimulating experience of Tuscany, with sport, adventure, well being and good food.
Total comfort and relax are waiting for you in the outside location: open air lounges with divans and arm chairs in front of the spectacular painting of Val d’ Orcia.
Here you can find tranquility and peace, while tasting some of the renowned local wines or reading a good book in the shaded hammock.
The villa is surrounded by a large garden with aromatic herbs, lavender, rosmary, basil and wild flowers. A large portico with a dining table and chairs is the perfect area for al fresco eating and for fully enjoying the freedom of country life in front of a magnificent sunset, perhaps drinking a nice cool aperitive.
The swimming pool is very long like an ornamental lake and ideal for those who love swimming.
The villa has AC and mosquito screens.
You also have free access to the owners’ biological kitchen garden. This is a unique possibility: to be able to use healthy vegetables directly from the garden.
The owners are always at your full disposition to make your holidays unforgettable, full of interesting experiences, like cooking classes, catering, yoga lessons(there is a special very large covered area for this), relaxing and invigorating massages.....
All windows allow you to admire the enchanting Tuscan countryside and it will seem to you that the colors of the countryside are all in one with the colors of this wonderful villa.
