Authentic Tuscan Villa
Tuscan villa rental with private pool and panoramic view
Villa Tuscany belongs to an artist. Having bought this 18th century Tuscan property in 1983, he has restored it painstakingly and lovingly over the years. He has tastefully designed the restoration plan which preserves the traditional Tuscan style in every detail, taking his inspiration from the old abandoned Tuscan farms in the Chianti area. The walls are immaculately white and interspersed by vaults that allow sunlight to enter. Antique dark-red handmade terracotta tiles cover the floors and the roof which is supported by powerful oak beams. The windows and doors are elegantly framed in the local silver-gray stone "pietra serena.” All the cypresswood furniture is typically Tuscan and in harmony with the rustic setting of the house. Several magnificent reproductions of masterpieces by Renaissance artists such as Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Sandro Botticelli, Piero della Francesca, Paolo Uccello, Domenico Ghirlandaio, Masaccio, Alesso Baldovinetti and Ercole de' Roberti are displayed in the Villa. The result is an uncompromisingly authentic and nostalgic atmosphere, an essential beauty where the rooms are reminiscent of paintings.
Three panoramic terraces and a hammock under trees add to the grace of Villa Tuscany. These open up to the beauty of the surrounding Tuscan countryside, as well as to the pool, where lunch and dinner can be enjoyed. Three large tables have been set up in the garden to provide a perfect place for sitting outdoors, dining or simply admiring the superb views over the gently rolling hills of Chianti.
An ample double living room with a huge Tuscan fireplace, comfortable sofa and armchairs make up the living area where the fascinating painting of The Annunciation by Leonardo da Vinci hangs. The living room is equipped with satellite TV, first class Denon HI-FI system, CD and DVD player, a collection of 100 CDs (Classic, Jazz, Salsa, Pop) and an upright piano. Its large double doors open onto the main terrace (328 sq. ft/100 m2) where guests can enjoy dining under the plane tree in front of the splendid panorama, cooled by the evening breeze.
The dining room seats 16 people on a long table and has a cozy salon in which two full-size painting replicas by Paolo Uccello (The Battle of San Romano) and Leonardo da Vinci (Lady with an Ermine) can be admired.
The large kitchen with fireplace and its own access to the garden contains cooking equipment for serving at least 20 persons. It boasts a 5-burner stove, electric oven, microwave oven, dishwasher, side by side refrigerator-freezer and all modern amenities such as coffee maker, mixer, etc.

A cozy office room has been set up with desk, sofa, phone and Canon printer/scanner/fax.
