On a wooded crest of the Montagnola hills outside Siena, this beautifully restored farmhouse gives the immediate impression of protected peace.
The surrounding rural landscape is a composite of the ilex oak trees that foster porcini mushrooms, olives groves, whose fruit becomes the owners' distinctive olive oil, and meadows where deer graze in peace.
At the end of a cypress-lined drive, the house is enclosed at the front by large walled courtyard opposite a jasmine-draped Zen garden. A fitting welcome to a beautifully tended property that ensures a restorative and pampered holiday.
The house has been recently restored with great care and retains many of its original Tuscan features.
There is one entryway into a hall and a cloak room, and another into a large country kitchen with an open fireplace and equipped with all amenities necessary for a gourmet dinner or cooking classes to inspire one. An open archway leads to the dining room with access to a small furnished terrace. Another arch leads up to the living room with its spectacular fireplace built on natural rock formation and french doors onto a Zen terrace, perfect for enjoying cocktails and the evening light. Also on this floor are two twin bedrooms each with en suite shower rooms, and a small WC with washer and dryer.
Antique travertine stairs lead up to a landing with access to a covered loggia overlooking the courtyard. On this floor there is a large living room with open fireplace and one twin and two double bedrooms, all with en suite shower rooms. All twin bedrooms can be made into doubles upon request.
Additional accommodation is available in the converted barn. Light and airy thanks to its open plan design, on the upper level it has a double and a twin bedroom, each with an en suite shower room. An open staircase leads below to a dining room/kitchen and a living area with a fireplace and large doors onto a furnished terrace.
The decor is elegant but eclectic: beam ceilings, wood and local stone, softly coloured walls and terracotta floors all find a natural mix with twists of modern Italian design.
Behind the main house there is a travertine terrace, with umbrellas and good quality sun furniture and a pool whose infinity edge looks out over the low Montagnola hills and whose fountain provides refreshing massage
