Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Montevettolini - La Letizia
Rustic and elegant 3 bedroom cottage in a quiet hillside environment.
In this holiday house you can enjoy absolute privacy, as it is only rented to one family at a time. Neither the owner resides at the property. It is an independent, to 3 sides free standing cottage in typical Tuscan style for your exclusive use with approx. 400 sq. m, from which 250 sq. m on the ground and first floor are available to our guests. The other rooms (2 on the ground floor and two on the first floor) are closed.
On one side the house borders on the neighbour house (only 2 people) whose terrace area is separated from the panoramic terrace of La Letizia by a hedge.
In 2008 the approximately 300 year old cottage has been lovingly renovated in period style. Each room is decorated individually and radiates the rustic charm of yesteryear; warm muted colors were perfectly matched with the rest of the high quality furniture.
The spacious villa offers 3 tastefully decorated bedrooms for 6 persons (2 children beds can be added at an additional cost) 2 bathrooms, 1 of them is decorated very cosy, 1 large and typical Tuscan, well equipped country house kitchen with an antique, intact chimney. The kitchen radiates a nice sense of comfort. Kitchen facilities include among others a 4 flame gas stove with extractor hood and oven, 1 dishwasher, 1 man-sized refrigerator with freezer, 1 toaster, 1 brewing coffee machine, 1 small espresso maker, 1 large marble working surface for food preparation. The elegant, spacious and grand living area with high ceilings and antique chestnut tree beams is equipped with comfortable sittings in front of an additional, wood-burning, antique chimney. The living area is partly furnished with valuable antiques. TV, DVD. The spacious, walk-in cellar is equipped with a washing machine and ironing facilities.
Ground floor and first floor are, with exception of the 2 bathrooms, completely laid with terracotta.
To the cottage belong approximately 1,3 acres of partially enclosed grounds with a large olive grove. From the sunny, large panoramic terrace in front of the house equipped with a swing chair, garden furniture with umbrella you can enjoy a fantastic view of the surrounding hills and the Montalbano. Perfect is as well the sheltered pergola with garden furniture (amongst others large garden table for 6 people with valuable Majolica work), table tennis and a BBQ made of antique terracotta. The terrace is almost completely surrounded by a natural stone wall.
On the olive grove terrace below the panoramic terrace, easily accessible via 14 steps, the octagonal pool invites you to enjoy a refreshing bath. (5,10m in diameter, 1, 30 m in depth). For a maximum of comfort for our guests we have opted for a smaller pool right at the house with panoramic view, a larger one could just have been placed further away from the house due to space reasons.
The area in front of the pool is decorated with a manicured lawn and is ideal for sunbathing. The sun will spoil you here the whole day. Due to the high stone wall behind the pool's natural heat is stored even longer, so you can enjoy a pleasant warmth in the high-and especially in the middle season even late at night. Also from the pool area you can enjoy a fantastic view of the surrounding green hills with their silvery-green shining olive trees. Additionally there was installed an exterior shower with warm water next to the pool. Pets are welcome.
