This traditional stone Villa is the perfect place to live out your very own Tuscan dream. Lulled among the rolling green hills of Val d’Orcia, surrounded by luxuriant Olive trees and a gorgeous 6×12 pool – this enchanting Farmhouse will take you back centuries and centuries, to when ancient rural Tuscany was the very heart and soul of Italian culture. With its spectacular view on the gorgeous Tuscan hills, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this property offers 3 different apartments with a total of 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 1,9 hectares of land covered by 140 ancient olive trees. A charming pool overlooking the splendid green hills is what gives this Villa the perfect luxurious finish. This astounding Villa of 236 sq.m is divided into 3 fully independent apartments spreading on two floors. A traditional Tuscan cypress-lined street leads up to the property, which welcomes you in its thriving Olive tree park. Gazing down on the left you can behold the luscious 6×12 pool with an exceptionally beautiful view on the hills below. On the right there’s the stone Villa, in its grand, rustic splendor. Two separate entrances grant access to the ground floor of this enchanting property. On the right there’s a studio apartment – an open-space area of 47 sq.m with kitchenette, dining space, sleeping area and its own private bathroom. The gorgeous kitchenette is fully equipped with a large stone oven, which welcomes you as soon as you enter this apartment. The space is bright and airy, with large windows overlooking the lush garden, and a stone wall bathroom with annex shower. Gawking up at the ceiling: traditional wooden beams with Tuscan “pianelle” – a must. A separate entrance then leads you into the second 108 sq.m. apartment. The first hall is luminous and welcoming. Strolling further, you reach the splendid kitchen, obviously provided with a large fireplace, perfect for fixing up home-cooked, bubbly, steaming pots of soup in the colder months. It truly is the heart of the home, for it is the most central and richest room for the family to gather in or to welcome guests, then allowing them to wander off in their rooms. In fact, it is from there that you can access two master bedrooms, a double bedroom and their two bathrooms. Stone wall, large fireplace and traditional rural “voltine” ceiling – a vaulted ceiling, typical of Italian Country Houses, are what makes this apartment the perfect embodiment of Tuscan countryside lifestyle. The true gem of this wing of the Villa? The view from the first bedroom, that through an arched window under the outer stone staircase allows you to get a load of the UNESCO Heritage landscape in front of this one-of-a-kind Villa. The upstairs 81 sq.m. apartment is accessed by an external stone staircase – a feature typical of traditional Italian Countryhouses. The living room and its large fireplace are what welcomes you in this part of the Villa. From there you can access a gorgeous kitchen with its dining area, and through a stone arch, the 2 bedrooms and their bathroom, all towered by traditonal wooden beams and magnificent terracotta floors – the typical heavenly combination that makes this Villa your perfect Tuscan countryside home.
This breathtaking property would be of an otherwordly beauty anywhere in the world – but Tuscany adds its enormous value to it, making it a truly outstanding property. Picture the luscious rolling hills of Tuscany. Picture an ancient stone Villa built in their loving embrace. Picture a life of tranquil serenity, of dips in the crystal-clear pool, of cold Aperitivo drinks on wrought iron chairs overlooking the Olive trees. A life of homemade Olive Oil from your 140 trees thriving under the Italian sun. The 1,9 hectares of land around the Villa make all of this possible. Not everyone can say to be able to wake up, open the doors on their garden… and gaze upon a UNESCO World Heritage Site like Val d’Orcia. Not everyone can say to be able to have a swim in their private 6×12 pool, look up, and behold the green Tuscan countryside on their left, and their luxurious stone Villa on their right. Tuscany, the heart and home of Italian Culture, Art and Literature, needs no introduction. Its rural, yet luxurious character is what makes everyone who visits fall in love with its hills and its traditions. This property is located in Val d’Orcia, a gorgeous valley close to the border between Tuscany and Umbria, with its classic Olive trees and cypresses. Its foods and wines are well-known and exported all over the world – among many others, the Pecorino di Pienza, a famous strong flavoured sheep cheese, and the Brunello di Montalcino, one of the most renowed rubin red Tuscan wines. The Val d’Orcia is a UNESCO World Heritage Site which played a key part in the Italian Renaissance. Its landscape inspired many Renaissance artists back in the 13th Century for their depiction of a life lived in harmony between man and Nature. This property sits 4 km away from its nearest town, Radicofani, which partnered with other four towns to create the Val d’Orcia Park. From this Villa you can comfortably reach these other towns in about 30 minutes. They are some of the most renowed “borghi” of the Val d’Orcia: Pienza – a gem rich in history, good food and narrow romantic alleys, the gorgeous 12th Century citadel. Castiglione d’Orcia, but also San Quirico d’Orcia – an ancient etruscan town, and obviously Montalcino, for a superb wine-tasting experience, with world-famous local products and spectacular views to go with them. From Val d’Orcia you can easily reach in about two hours Rome, Florence, Pisa and the enchanting Umbria region. A life in harmony with nature: this is what Renaissance artists had in mind 8 Centuries ago. This is what you can still strive to acquire in this gorgeous Villa. And not only that: if you like rural countryside living, but still want to immerse yourself in a luxurious tranquil environment: this is the place for you. Unwinding by the pool near a Tuscan stone Villa, fully restored and with an eye for traditional materials and aesthetics, provided with plenty of space for family, guests and/or renting, in one of the top worldwide destinations.
