Romantic Relais is an elegant Leopoldina-style villa turned into a charming boutique hotel with a restaurant, nestled in the heart of Southern Tuscany. It is centrally and strategically located at a short distance from the most sought-after locations of the area, like Siena, Cortona, and the Valdorcia and it is well connected with the main traffic routes to Florence, Rome, and Umbria.
The XVIII Villa is a typical Leopoldina-style country house, built during the reign of Gran duke Pietro Leopoldo in Tuscany. The property was owned by important local noble families until the end of the last century.
The estate includes 3 buildings: the main Villa which underwent a recent renovation, and two annexes to be restored (Tabaccaia and Porcilaia). It would be possible to rebuild an old ruin, which would make for a further annex.
The main Villa has a total size of about 450 sqm and spreads over 2 independent floors.
On the ground floor, in the former stables, there is the restaurant with a professional kitchen, dining area with fireplace, bathrooms, and large storage in the basement. The lovely restaurant can seat up to 40 people inside and outside as well, in the charming courtyard.
An external staircase leads to the first floor, which consists of a large living room and six bedrooms (one is set in the dovecote on the second floor) with en suite bathrooms. All the bedrooms are finely furnished and equipped with Air Conditioning, a Jacuzzi shower, Minibar, a Safe, and TV.
The Villa was restored at the end of the 2000s by the current owners, who paid great care to every detail and only chose high-end furniture and quality materials.
On the right side of the Villa, there is the �Tabaccaia�, an old country house of about 300 sqm currently used as a storage area which is in need of complete renovation, as well as the second annex with adjoining wood-burning oven called �Porcilaia� of about 100 sqm, on the right side of the house.
There is also the possibility of expanding the volume of these buildings by 20 % during renovation.
This would allow to build of an additional four flats and a guesthouse and to further develop the accommodation business.
The property comes with 3,5 ha of land, mainly arable land, and 1 ha of olive grove with 100 olive trees.
In the luscious garden facing the restaurant, there is also a lovely panoramic saltwater pool with a relaxation area, much appreciated by the guests of the Relais.
Romantic Relais is a great investment opportunity for those interested in acquiring an already working accommodation business in the heart of Tuscany, �generating good income and with further possibilities for development.
