Boasting 360 degree views, Villa Senese is perched hilltop in Gaiole in Chianti in the idyllic Tuscan countryside. Nestled on two hectacres of gardens, the villa hosts its infinity edged pool in an olive orchard, magically floating over the surrounding hills and valleys.
The four hundred year old farmhouse features traditional thick Tuscan walls, tiled roofs, massive fireplaces, beamed ceilings and exposed stonework. Lovingly restored, the home reflects the best of Italian style, contemporary decor and modern conveniences.
The open plan living areas are full of light. The living room features a large decorative fireplace and flows to a second sitting area, a fully equipped kitchen and indoor dining. A central courtyard hosts a pizza oven and barbecue with al fresco dining facilities. There are two other outdoor dining areas, one sheltered by a charming pergola.
Four of the five bedroom suites host double beds and the fifth two twin beds. Each bedroom features a high tech en-suite bathroom. There are also a mini-gym and a games room. The villa has a remote safety cover for the pool and toys, books, films and games for children.
Remodeling was achieved with an eye to ecological friendliness. Solar panels provide energy, wood powers underfloor eating, and lawns are irrigated with collected rainwater.
Villa Senese offers the best of Tuscan scenery and lifestyle as well as proximity to the famed culture and history in the area known as the birthplace of the Renaissance. Siena, Florence, vineyards, and a myriad of dining venues are within easy driving distance.
Minimum length of stay requirements and rates are not negotiable.
