Ancient luxury villa in Valdelsa, in Colle Val d`Elsa (Siena). Sleeps 14, wide garden, swimming pool, solarium area, Internet connection. Tennis courts and golf club within a few kilometres. Wonderful view over the Tuscan countryside.
The villa was built in the 17th century on the hills of Valdelsa, between Poggibonsi and the picturesque town of Colle Val d`Elsa, in the province of Siena. In the course of the centuries the building was extended to its actual size. The marble sculptures inserted in the walls and the battlements decorating the top make the villa a structure unique in its genre, resembling almost to a castle. The double-lancet windows are another unusual element of the villa.
The wonderful frescoes in the lounges of the villa date from the early 20th century, whereas those in the bedrooms are more recent.
The villa and its park command the luxuriant Chianti and Valdelsa countryside. The ideal accommodation for those who dream of peaceful vacations in an elegant and refined atmosphere, the villa is an excellent departure point for visiting Colle Val d`Elsa (the town of crystal), San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra, Florence and the Chianti region.
