This spacious Tuscan villa rental has 5 bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms (3 with showers, 2 with tub and hand held shower), spread out over three floors. This farmhouse combines all the luxuries of modern living with the allure of old world Italy. The inside of this 17th century Tuscan farmhouse has been completely renovated, while the outer structure remains in its original state. The stones were removed, cleaned, and lovingly placed back, adhering to the original character and design of the farmhouse. Great thought was put into the design of the villa in order to retain its original charm while providing all of the needs of modern day living. This former farmhouse is located just next door to its renovated former barn in which the owners now reside.

Step into the huge double living room with 9 meter traditional Tuscan beam ceilings, hand carved fireplace with a chocolate travertine mantle, two gorgeous arches, open chef's kitchen and bar. Light streams through large double-glazed Tuscan windows, offering panoramic views and vistas at every turn. All of the rooms have ceiling fans, and all of the windows and doors throughout both houses are double-glazed and equipped with screens.

A guest bathroom by one of the main entrances features a toilet, sink and washing machine (sorry, no dryer - it is not necessary under the Tuscan sun). There is a TV in the living room.

The custom-designed kitchen is equipped with a large Whirlpool refrigerator, professional stovetop on a centrally located island, three-foot oven, two double stainless steel sinks, a dishwasher, and custom cabinets with black marble tops. Access to a covered outdoor eating patio with seating for 16 (not visible from the adjacent house) is directly available from the kitchen. The large formal dining room is located below grade to ensure cool temperatures throughout the summer, and is accessed directly from the kitchen by means of a ramp of steps.

The large pool (5 x 14.5 meters) is dramatically set against the backdrop of forest and distant hills among lavender, rosemary, rose bushes and other local Tuscan flora. There is ample pool furniture (seating and umbrellas) provided. Additionally there is a shaded outdoor dining area enabling one to spend leisurely moments lounging and dining in comfort.

The charming and accommodating bi-lingual owners are American expats, who have been living full time in Italy for the past 20 years (also the owners of il Poggio: http://www.haveninparis.com/rental/poggio.php). They live in the smaller home adjacent to the main villa. They are wonderful hosts and will happily help you organize many extra luxury services (for a fee): catering, market shopping, cooking lessons, tours and hikes, bike rentals, hot air ballooning, wine tasting and tours of the winery, olive picking, additional cleaning and more, allowing you to have a truly relaxing Tuscan vacation rental experience. Additional maid service is available upon request.


Please note:
** The swimming pool can present a hazard, particularly to small children.
** There are several staircases throughout the villa, making it inappropriate for anyone with difficulties walking or climbing.
** The owners live in a private house right next door to the villa on the same property. They are extremely discreet and will never intrude upon your privacy unless invited. You will most likely never see them. That said, if total isolation is the goal, this is not the property for you.
**This property is located 1.5 kilometers up a rough and bumpy unpaved road. Small cars beware.
**Due to the rural setting of this property, access to supplies, food and fuel are more limited then in a big city on the weekends. The owner can arrange to have a few basic groceries in place for you when you arrive (for an additional fee). Please plan accordingly with this in mind. You can arrange this directly with the owner.
** There has, at one time, been a cat in this villa. The villa has been thoroughly cleaned, vacuumed and disinfected, but this could be a problem for someone with a serious allergy to cats.
** Due to the high costs of heating the property during the cooler months, there is a supplemental heating/energy deposit of 500 Euros for rentals between September 1st and April 15th. This deposit is due in cash at check-in and all (or part) will be returned at check-out depending on the energy usage during your stay. After April 15th, central heating is not allowed in Italy. If the weather is cold, we will be happy to provide you with space heaters during your stay.
