On the border of Toscana and Umbria, is a charming & rustic Italian villa just waiting for guests to arrive. This old stone building with terracotta shingles was renovated in 2008 to accommodate 12. It's architectural elements are wonderful, rustic wood beams are exposed in every room and hallway. The multilevel layout allows for private spaces with surprises around every corner and up every set of stairs. Decorated impeccably with creams and neutral tones, it is a breathtaking escape. For those of you who love to cook, heaven awaits you. Outfitted with 2 ovens, hotplates, extra large fridge, and a pizza oven outdoors, you will gladly enjoy preparing some of the tastiest and inspired meals ever. And when you need a break, ancient villages nearby boast some of the most authentic Italian restaurants of the region. Not sold yet? Firenze and Siena are just a couple of hours of away. If you feel the need to shop, watch people outfitted in the most stylish clothes of the season, or just just sit at an outdoor cafe listening to local music, the city is easily accessible.
There are a few ways to enjoy Italy.. if you are under 25, and can sleep on surfaces other than a bed, I suggest backpacking. However, for those of you with discerning taste, there is a villa located on a hillside, along a private country road, with a pool and a gourmet kitchen, .... fresh linens and modern appointments await you .... and it is the only way to experience a culture that is rich in art, history, design, and cuisine.
