Just outside the village of Radicondoli, facing across rolling, open countryside, is this family villa with a pool, once a Tuscan farmhouse, now full of charm and character and providing ample accommodation for eight people.
The 12 X 6 m. fenced swimming pool, with a lovely surround made from old terracotta tiles, is landscaped into a grassy lower terrace, screened from view from the outside by a steep bank and trees.
The house is prettily situated on a hillside, having superb views, yet with all the advantages of being near a village.
We have known this house and rented it for years and it is a favourite for many; it's very family friendly and having the village nearby is a boon for families, with icecreams, restaurants and cafes nearby. The owner, Claudio, is a great asset to the house and makes excellent olive oil and wine!
Spacious kitchen / dining room with large Tuscan fireplace, sitting room, two shower rooms, one bathroom, two double bedrooms, two twin bedrooms.
The whole house is characterised by small flights of steps and interesting details, and has been converted using traditional materials, retaining the original beamed ceilings and tiled floors.
The furniture is a mixture of old Tuscan and kitsch, while fittings are modern and efficient.
The owner, who lives in the village, is most hospitable and attentive to guests.
Radicondoli is an ancient Tuscan hill village, population 1.000, with Etruscan origins, which to-day retains a medieval aspect, yet provides good shopping and restaurant facilities along with an open air dancing on Saturday nights, which can be heard from La Ragnana, and a sports centre with a tennis court.
A deservedly well renowned classical music programme is held in the summer. There are more than 15 acres of land belonging to the house and guests may walk almost anywhere in the surrounding woods and hills.
The approach to the house is marred by some new houses but the wide terrace, furnished with a large wooden table, garden furniture and a barbecue, offers complete privacy on the south and west sides of the house above the fenced swimming pool. There are splendid, unspoilt views of the hills from the house, the terraces and the pool.
