About the villa
Combining the peace of the countryside with proximity to medieval towns and villages, this is an informal and unpretentious villa, cheerfully furnished with bright throws and rugs, and generously sized for groups of friends or family. Forming part of the Cetinale estate, the house is set in cypress studded grounds at the end of a private road, hemmed by the renowned gardens of Villa Cetinale, with which it shares use of a tennis court. La Cerbaia is 5km from a café, restaurant and shops in Sovicille, and just 14km from the glories of Siena, but it’s tempting to simply soak-up its own leisurely tempo.
With accommodation on several levels, there are spacious living areas in both the house and garden, from the comfy sofas in the sitting room and a shaded sundowner terrace, to the open-plan kitchen /dining room and a rustic, vine cloaked pergola, where guests enjoy typically Tuscan food prepared by the cook. A stroll across tree-shaded lawns leads to a lovely swimming pool, its terracotta terrace thoughtfully furnished with smart rattan loungers.

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.
But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
