The manor villa (500 sqm – 5,380 sqft, 6 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms) has been tastefully restored preserving its rural-but-high-level look, with high-quality stone floors, restored and valorized vaulted ceilings and decorative elements left almost intact. The building is laid over two floors, with a day zone on the ground floor and a night quarter on the first floor:

The guesthouse N°1 (160 sqm – 1,722 sqft, 1 bathroom), laid over a single floors, is made up of three areas: north to south we have a cozy sitting room with fireplace, TV and bathroom, a bar with counter and a pool room. The building has been restored too and still boasts all the typical features such as exposed wooden beams, metal doors, high-quality stone floors and even an original fireplace in decorated stone.

The property covers a surface of approximately 2.5 hectares (6.2 acres) that can be irrigated thanks to a lake nearby. The view from the terrace is breathtaking and ranges from Crete Senesi to Val d’Orcia.
Exiting the villa we end up in a well-maintained Italian garden decorated with boxwood, roses and rosemary, carefully studied to be as symmetrical as the buildings. Across the garden, a wrought-iron gazebo assembled by a renowned local craftsman offers a nice outdoor shaded area.
The ample paved courtyard between the two main buildings (roughly 140 sqm – 1,506 sqft) is perfect for al fresco dinners with friends in the pleasant Tuscan climate.
East from the villa we reach the beautiful 14 × 7 m Infinity swimming pool paved in carefully selected travertine stone. Around the pool a pergola offers a nice sitting area and a summer kitchen is ideal for dinners and aperitifs. Under the basin there are a bathroom and a shower room.
West from the buildings, right below guesthouse N°2, a small olive grove has been planted (roughly 3,000 sqm for a total of 80 trees planted in a 6 × 6 m pattern) and produces a small quantity of olive oil for personal use.
