Facilities

This wonderful old farmhouse is available for rent and sleeps 11 guests. Once derelict, the farmhouse has been sensitively restored with traditional Tuscan details, such as tiled floors and beamed ceilings. Lovely old features have been preserved, such as a vaulted hall, an old bread oven, arched doors, shuttered windows and a hay barn now converted into a magnificent sitting room. Concealed modern lighting throughout the house, complemented by antique wall lights, highlights the architectural details without spoiling the rustic atmosphere. All double bedrooms have multiple windows and  en suite bathrooms. 

At the heart of the house, an old olive tree shades a sunny courtyard, where two loggias command fine views across the valley. From every prospect, the garden leads on to the vineyard, which in turn is surrounded by oak woods and streams. The well-planted garden includes a young orchard, a Tuscan kitchen garden, lawns and a herb-filled lane.

A long swimming pool is shaded on either side by an arcaded loggia and pergola. From the shallow end, a submerged curved seat looks out onto an exceptional view.

A housekeeper, who lives in a separate staff flat, cleans and cares for the house. A cooking service can be arranged.
