Web Directories - Our Competitors

  • A lot of your time is wasted filling out forms and waiting for replies from multiple vacation rental owners. Many busy owners never reply.
  • The price shown always changes, you have to calculate it yourself and often changes once you communicate with the owner.
  • Most owners do not take the time to provide complete information on listings, so you waste time having to ask questions and wait for responses.
  • In a nutshell, "Web Directories" are cumbersome and time consuming, and if you have a problem, you are on your own.
Accommodation - Farmhouse - 3500 sq ft / 325 sq m
A World away... Or at least that's how it seems.

Located just 15 convenient minutes from the A1 autostrada equidistant from Rome and Florence, this recently restored farmhouse is close to everything: the village is down the hill, the shopping center and the train station are all a few minutes away by car, and scores of enchanting Tuscan villages are an easy drive away. But the most magical thing about its location is its seeming isolation. Up here on the hill, civilization as we know it lies far, far away, the air is cooler and cleaner, the panoramas stretch out at your feet for miles, the sounds and smells and colors, more vibrant. Whether you're lounging by the pool, happily slicing and dicing away for a luncheon party, meditating in the deliciously cool and peaceful woods, or working up a sweat hiking into town for provisions, you'll be surrounded by genuine Tuscan beauty.

The property (Main house and Guest Tower) easily accommodates 8 people in 4 bedrooms, each with its own en suite bath. We wanted to preserve as many of the original building materials as possible and were very rigorous in incorporating local building traditions and techniques in the restoration, using native stone, marble and color pigments throughout the house. Furnished with a sophisticated mix of European antiques and modern upholstered pieces, the house is stylish yet down-to-earth.

The main house consists of 3 bedrooms and 3 baths, a large living room, dining room, a reading/TV room, laundry, and an enormous gourmet kitchen. The tower is affectionately known as 'the honeymoon suite." Set apart, it is a 2 story structure with a downstairs sitting room and bath, and a lovely bedroom upstairs. The views from the tower are splendid and it is, indeed, a very romantic spot.

The garden, the fields and the woods are what really make the property magical. Created out of a jungle of weeds, shrubs, and brambles, the garden pays homage to the original olive terraces that were discovered during the restoration process. The front lawn is surrounded by lavender hedges and flowering shrubs and is shaded by cypress and oak trees. The kitchen herb garden provides all the thyme, sage, and rosemary you could possibly use for any culinary adventure. The pool was designed to fit inside the existing measurements of one of these cascading agricultural terraces. Resembling an enormous water trough, it fits seamlessly into the landscape and is completely hidden from view. Only the sound of its delightful waterfall gives away its location.

Outside this inner precinct lie the agricultural elements: fields of olive trees, nut trees, remnants of plum hedges and allees of cherry and apple trees. And if you follow the old cart path along the 'serpentine' wall, you descend into the wood. Here you enter Etruria...Lost and found.
