Overview

About the property

Unbeatable value for money, large private pool, extensive fendced gardens

Villa Orizzonte is a truly special property, combining a perfect location with a large private pool, spacious interiors and amazing panoramic views. Located in the heart of "Chianti Classico" area, one of the most pictoresque and sought after areas of the region, the villa can accommodate up to 16 guests in a truly Tuscan environment.

The villa is set over 3 floors and is surrounded by extensive private gardens with swimming pool and beautful local flowers. It is divided into 3 self-contained units (one for each floor) rented together as a whole to provide extra privacy yet benefitting from the swimming pool and outdoor areas without sharing them with other guests.

On the ground floor there is a welcoming apartment sleeping 4 guests. It has an open plan lounge with dining area and kitchen (fully equipped with fridge/freezer, microwave and dishwasher), 2 bedrooms (one double and one twin), family shower room (with washing machine).

On the first floor there is a large apartment, with wide common areas in case all the guests of the villa want to dine or spend time together. It sleeps 7 guests. There is a spacious separate lounge with fireplace and dining table, fully equipped kitchen (with fridge/freezer, oven, dishwasher), 4 bedrooms (2 doubles, 1 twin, 1 with single french bed), 2 family shower rooms (one of which provided with washing machine). The master bedroom and the single bedroom have direct access to a lovely terrace.

On the upper floor there is a further unit with indipendent access sleeping up to 5 guests. It has a fully equipped kitchen (fridge/freezer, oven, washing machine), lounge with fireplace, a welcoming dining area with access to a wide terrace (furnished with parasols, table and chairs), 2 bedrooms (one double, one with single bed + bunkbed), family shower room (with washing machine).

This clever layout allows the larger groups to have privacy yet benefitting of spacious common areas both inside and outside to dine and spend time together. As the property is rented as a whole and not as separate units, the use of the pool and the grounds is exclusive for our guests only.

What makes Villa Orizzonte unique are the outside areas, that combined with the central location makes this villa a perfect holiday home for a truly Tuscan holiday.

The private swimming pool (with poolside shower) is set within fenced grounds and offers stunning views over the rolling Chianti hills.

It is particularly large, measuring 12x6m, and is provided with sunbeds and parasols. This is the perfect location where to spend lazy days under the sun enjoying the magnificent views. The pool is open from the 15th of April until the 15th of October.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Wir hatten eine wunderbare Zeit in der Villa. Unsere Erwartungen, die wir anhand von Fotos und Beschreibung haben durften, wurden weit übertroffen. Noch nie habe ich eine derart gut und üppig ausgestattete Ferienwohnung gesehen. Und die Lage im Herzen des Chianti auf einem Hügel mit Blick auf Siena inmitten von Weinbergen und Olivenhainen ist einfach traumhaft. Der Empfang war herzlich, die Gastgeber freundlich und sehr bemüht um unser Wohl. Die Wohnungen, wir haben mit 7 Personen alle drei Appartments bewohnt, waren sauber, ausreichend Handtücher etc. vorhanden und Küchen und Grill luden zum Kochen ein. Wenn wir es im nächsten Jahr zeitlich wieder hinbekommen, werden wir sicher wiederkommen. Die nahe gelegenen Städte Siena und Castellina haben uns schöne Tage und Abende beschert. Es gibt wirklich nichts, was wir zu beanstanden hätten. Die Kommunikation mit dem Gastgeber funktioniert freundschaftlich und reibungslos in englisch oder naürlich - wer's kann - italienisch. Fazit: Von uns gibt's nur die beste Bewertung. Bellissimo!

Review for stay from 19 August 2017 to 19 August 2017

  • 5 of 5

La casa è ben arredata e confortevole. Eravamo un gruppo di amici e ci siamo goduti la privacy della proprietà e la bellissima piscina. I paesini del Chianti Classico sono vicini e deliziosi. Volendo si può arrivare a Vagliaglii a piedi per fare un aperitivo. Perfetto per un gruppo come noi. Magari torniamo anche in inverno.

Review for stay from 25 September 2016 to 06 October 2016

  • 5 of 5

The villa itself fully lived up to our expectations and more. It is a beautiful setting with wonderful views all around. However, a car is necessary to get around as there are no amenities within walking distance and the roads to and from the villa are very bumpy dirt/gravel roads. It was the perfect setting for a multi-generational family reunion!

Wonderful villa in a beautiful setting

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful villa, beautifully situated on a mountaintop with wonderful views of the Chianti region from every window of the villa. The villa works great for a multi-generational get-together, as it is divided into 3 separate apartments. The grounds of the villa are gorgeous and well-kept and the pool is well-maintained. A car is necessary for any outings, as the villa is quite remote and only accessed by dirt roads. There are no restaurants, shopping or other amenities within walking distance, so a vehicle is necessary to enjoy the wonderful Chianti area. We only have good things to say about the housekeeper/keyholder, who assisted us in many aspects. All in all the villa lived fully up to our expectations and more.

Nice large villa in a lovely position in the Tuscan hills

  • 3 of 5

While the villa is in a lovely position and generally well appointed there were one or two issues that should be addressed. There was only one electric kettle in the villa and there should be one in each apartment. The kitchen in the main apartment was too small when attempting to cater for a large party. In general the villa was clean but not to a high standard. On inspecting the cutlery and crockery in the main kitchen we felt the need to clean it all before using it. A CD system would be a useful addition in the main apartment for entertainment as would access to satellite channels in English. Finally, a book of instructions for the various appliances would be extremely helpful to make using the equipment easier and contain explanations of rubbish disposal and local contacts such as doctors and other emergency services. This book could also recommend trips out, local restaurants, local attractions, train schedules etc.

Having said all the above, as a party of eight we enjoyed our stay.

Review for stay from 20 August 2016 to 20 August 2016

  • 5 of 5

Die Gastgeberin Raffaela hat uns gerne auch schon 2 Stunden vor dem eigentlich ausgemachten Check-In in das wunderschöne Haus eingelassen und uns alles Essentielle erklärt und jede Frage nachhaltig beantwortet. Außerdem hat sie uns bei der Abreise viel Arbeit erspart, indem sie uns übriggebliebene Lebensmittel mit Freuden abgenommen hat. Insgesamt war es ein sehr schöner Aufenthalt mit einer überwältigenden Aussicht!

The exceptionally panoramic location of Villa Orizzonte, is also extremely central to reach the most important historical sites of Tuscany that are all within a short drive:

Castellina in Chianti is 9 km away,

Siena is 20 km away,

San Gimignano is 45 km away,

Montalcino is a 60 km,
