Villa Vigna is a typical Tuscan farmhouse in 300 hectares of vineyards and olive groves. The country retreat of an aristocratic Italian family for many generations, it carries the unmistakable sheen of a house that has been tendered with years of loving care and attention. It is furnished with Tuscan family antiques and retains its original terracotta flooring, vaulted and beamed ceilings. Comfortable sofas set the tone for the three sitting areas which provide plenty of quiet reading corners as well as space for the whole party to gather. There are several eating areas: a dining room with a beautiful old terracotta floor, a vine-covered pergola for long lunches and warm evenings, and a loggia with a barbeque and fireplace or chillier times. Facing south and across the Tuscan hills, the gardens include extensive lawns, a large swimming pool and a play area for children. Please do not hesitate to contact us for further information.
