Stalla is a ground floor apartment in a large farmhouse that now offers a couple or small family a great place to holiday in Tuscany, but in earlier centuries was quite likely part of the home of those who fed the clerics of the mighty St. Mary's Abbey in nearby Badia Agnano. In spaces that once would have housed the farmstead's livestock and supplies, the current owners, in a 10-year restoration project, remained faithful to original layouts and created a generous apartment that now allow guests to stretch limbs and step away from the stresses of modern life....
This apartment, like the other two on the estate, has an individual outdoor eating area and easy access to the spacious pool area whose sun loungers, umbrellas, tables and night lighting make it a popular spot day and night. The surrounding hectares, once cultivated in grain, are now planted with olive and walnut trees, some strung with hammocks to make the most of a shaded afternoon snooze. The owner, who lives with her family on the top floor of the farmhouse, is an excellent resource. And at this property there are many 'extra' possibilities - horse stables you can walk to, cooking lessons and meals done by a lovely Italian, tours and transport to corners you've yet to discover, outlet shopping, and bike rentals for those who would tour Tuscany in a slower lane.
Stalla is an apartment with two entrances - one facing the pool and leading into the large kitchen/dining area and another from the side into the sitting room. The kitchen has attractive cupboards, a glass-topped table seating 8 in small armchairs. Off the dining area is a small twin bedroom with a wardrobe that utilizes a shower room off the sitting area. The sitting room, an extension of the dining area, has two sofas that can be used as single beds and an extra small sofa. Two steps up off this room is a roomy double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom.
