About the villa
With all the character of its 17th century origins, and all the comfort of a much loved family home, this old stone house leaves nothing to chance when it comes to relaxation. Airy rooms are furnished in an enchanting blend of old and new, with colourful kilims and artworks complementing country simplicity. Each of the villa’s four bedrooms has an en suite bathroom and air conditioning. The living room at the heart of the house, with its windows onto the garden, is complemented by a cosy study / sitting room on the floor above, warmed by a big log fire on autumn evenings. And beside the lovely swimming pool in very private gardens, a well-designed pool house incorporates a shower and wc, a kitchenette and barbecue, and a covered sitting and dining terrace for long, leisurely lunches. Close to both Tuscan and Umbrian attractions, this idle idyll is just 1.5km from lshops and restaurants in the picturesque walled town of Lucignano, and within 45km of Arezzo, Siena and Lake Trasimeno.

The rolling, strangely haunting scenery of the Val d’Orcia is the backdrop to many a Renaissance painting. Its cypress-studded ridges form one of the iconic modern images of ‘classic Tuscany’. The towns are a delight for architecture buffs: the Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano and Pienza; the Romanesque Collegiata in San Quirico d’Orcia, hewn entirely from honey-coloured travertine. Cortona clings to the side of a mountain overlooking the Valdichiana, looking out to Lake Trasimeno and neighbouring Umbria.
