This typical Tuscan Villa is a freestanding structure from the late 1700's, and is located close to vineyards and wide open fields, in a daunting position surrounded by rich Mediterranean nature. The front opens up to a large grassy area, just great for catching some of that Tuscan sun serenaded only by the sounds of nature. There is a lovely terrace in front of the villa partly covered, with a large table for al-fresco dinning. The house is reached by a private road so you can be assured of privacy and silence.
From the living/dining room you have direct access into the kitchen. The kitchen is perfect for large groups, there are all modern amenities, such as dishwasher, clothes washer and a super size American style fridge with a double door. There is lot of working space in the kitchen. The kitchen connects also to the outdoor terrace in front on the villa. There you find a large garden table and chairs for the whole group to have your meals outside.
There is also a BBQ area outside and an authentic wood burning stove if you would like to try your hand at making your one pizza! Celebrate your Tuscany Pizza Contest right here. Put all ingredients to decorate the Pizza on the large table, like sliced tomatoes, onions, tuna, ham, cheese, olives and much more. Each person picks a prefab pizza bottom ( you can get it in the local Coop market) and chooses its personal items to decorate and create its own personal Pizza. Let’s see which one is more tasty?
