The private garden area of the villa is completely enclosed by a fence, great for children or ensuring your privacy! This is all farmland surrounding the villa and this lovely little lake was once used to water the acres and acres of corn and sunflowers! The views from the villa are postcard perfect of the soft rolling hills of Tuscany which are perfect for wine and grazing sheep - the very same sheep which provide the fresh cheese which you will find in many local stores and markets.
The large pool area complete with gazeboos and breath taking views is located next to the tennis court - both a set to receive the sun all day! Just a short walk from the villa you will find a recption desk open everyday with someone who can assist you in selecting restaurants or direct you to the best local bargins in typical Tuscan products like wine, wool, gold and ceramics.

The fully furnished kitchen is located directly behind the living room area and has a window which overlooks the hills. You will find everything you need to enjoy making your favorite Italian meal - even if it means simmply opening up a bottle of Italian wine! Complete with many modern amenities you will find a dishwasher, complete plateware, silverware and cookware for up to 6 persons.

Next to the dining room table you will see a wood stairwell which takes you to the first floor where you will find the second bedroom with an ensuite bathroom.

This private villa offers you the best of both worlds - you have privacy in a luxury enviroment yet you are close enough to the main structure to enjoy all of the facilities - pool, tennis, park area and clotheswasher.
