Podere Vigneto makes an ideal countryside base for larger groups of friends or families travelling together or even separated smaller groups, in search of absolute seclusion and tranquillity in close contact to the typical Tuscan country environment. This is a secluded, elegant and perfectly restored Tuscan farmhouse in a stunning hilltop position with limitless views of the gently Tuscan hills and vineyards which surround the Villa, immersed in a wide family owned winery, yet very close to the unspoiled coastline.
The owners have decided to restructure the villa to become a welcoming vacation rental, maintaining important traces of the original architecture and furniture, linked with modern amenities and comfortable furniture. The “cotto” (fired bricked) floors and wooden beamed ceilings have been maintained together with the apparent stone walls of the original building, which are very thick walls keeping the villa fresh inside even in the hottest summer.
The owners have a beautifully kept swimming pool area where you will find comfortable sun loungers, reclining chairs, umbrellas and tables for relaxing under the sun. There is a lovely garden which surrounds the entire villa. Most of the lands that surround the villa are covered with vineyards, from which the owners produce their own Montescudaio wine. There are also many olive groves all around which, together with the cypress trees, local herbs and flowers compose the typical Tuscan panorama.
The villa is composed of two floors, and after the recent renovation has been divided in 3 comfortable apartments which can be rented by a group of friends and families travelling together, or they can be rented out separately providing all requested privacy for everyone in each unit. Each apartment has its own equipped terrace for outdoor meals and a private independent entrance. The ground floor holds the two smaller apartments with 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms each.
