Beautiful Villa for 8 with Private Pool and Gardens

Nestled at the base of a hillside not far from Siena, this villa is a tribute to relaxed well-being.

In this former ancient stone quarry, nurtured greenery has reclaimed a rock face and offices have become a sprawling home whose comfortable rooms all access its gracious gardens. The striking juxtaposition of stone and foliage is present throughout the property - from the pool encircled by rock walls and shady holm oaks to the gracious wisteria arbour which outlines the perimeter of the quarry to the wide flagstone paths and patios edged by fragrant lavender and rosemary. This mix can only help one relax in the natural beauty of this corner of Tuscany.

Accommodation

The house is approached via wide furnished patios facing the olive grove and the main entrance through wide French doors leads into a bright living / dining room with hardwood floors, an open fireplace and a dining table for 6. Steps down from the dining area lead to a very large country kitchen where marble counters and a stone-hewn sink mix well with professional equipment. From the kitchen there is direct access to the long shaded pergola furnished with a circular table for 10 as well as sofas where the friends can gather for a pre-dinner cocktail or conversation long into the night. Across the walkway to the pool picnic tables under large umbrellas offer another option for an informal lunch.

There are bedrooms on various levels of the house, two of them on the ground floor off the hallway from the living area. One is a modest twin bedroom, which uses the shower room across the hallway and the other a large master double bedroom, with a corner fireplace, direct access to the front patio and an ensuite two chambered bathroom. From the front patio two external staircases lead up to independent double bedroom suites, one with an ensuite bathroom, the other with a shower room. The arrangement of the sleeping accommodations make this the ideal choice for extended family holidays where different generations can retreat to private quarters yet still meet in large common areas.

This charming property underwent a significant renovation in the autumn of 2014, which brought marble or hardwood floors to bathrooms and bedrooms and beautiful new linens and draperies throughout. With a high standard of furnishings in the house and experienced personnel to assist with requested extras, this is a place you may feel discreetly pampered.

Around Cava di Calbello

This is great walking and biking country and once out of the property gates there is easy access to country roads that meander up to ancient castles or down to the River Merse. In the nearby village of Orgia the Museum of the Woods reveals how local woodsmen once made their living in the green hills that are still a haven for chestnut or mushroom gatherers. Yet there are good connections to medieval Siena, renaissance Florence and the crystal waters of the southern Tuscan coast. With easily arranged catering and transport, this Tuscan retreat can pamper and fascinate, and leave you with memories that linger.
