- Sleeps 4
- 2 bedrooms
- Private Pool
- Air Conditioning
- Tennis Court
Midway between the historic cities of Florence and Arezzo and sitting on a promontory in the Val d'Arno, Treggiaia is a clever conversion of a classic Tuscan barn that now provides comfortable accommodation for a small family or couples whose ideal holiday has them within reach of all that Tuscany is famous for, yet buffered in greenery....
A private drive to the side of the house leads to an independent guest entrance to the property and a few steps past the covered furnished gazebo bring one to the arched glass door facing the pool. Entrance is into the main room which occupies the entire ground floor and includes a living area with a sofa and sofa bed in front of a fireplace, a long trestle dining table for 10 and a brightly tiled corner kitchen located behind a low dividing wall near the living area. A spiral staircase tucked in the corner of the main room leads up to a small sitting area with wicker chairs and table overlooking the pool, off of which are a shower room with twin sinks, a twin bedroom and a double bedroom, both of which are air-conditioned. Furnishings throughout the house are of a comfortable country rustic style and large chestnut beams overhead and tile or parquet flooring underfoot speak to the owners' sensitive restoration.
Though the owners occasionally share the use of the pool and tennis court, these features are so convenient to the barn that they could easily become part of guests' daily routine. The pool, with easy-entry steps either side of an in-pool Jacuzzi, is set in a lawn whose shade trees and tall shrubbery ensure privacy and whose sunbeds, umbrellas and poolside sofas will invite one to linger. The tennis court is on a lower level to the side of the house and has a handy WC and shower near the guest laundry.
NB: For larger groups, the owners also have an additional apartment for 4 attached to their home. This accommodation is only available when Treggiaia guests request its use - please speak to your agent about details and prices if interested.
