Perks for the Parents

Nestled in the rolling Tuscany hills, this spacious and stylish villa is close to the thermal springs of San Casciano Dei Bagni. It sleeps 14. Whether you’re traveling with a multi-generational family group or sharing with friends, the villa has room for everyone to retreat and relax in peace. You’ll find a choice of areas to relax outside, whether you prefer dozing in the sun around the pool or sheltering in the shade in the vast gardens. Parents will also enjoy walking around one of the many local vineyards, tasting some of the local produce and discovering how the region’s wine is made, before purchasing a bottle or 2 for dinner.

Why Kids Love it

Children of all ages will love exploring the huge private gardens and splashing in the heated pool (15m x 8m). With 6 double bedrooms plus a twin room, there’s ample space to accommodate families of all sizes in comfort, as well as 2 separate indoor living areas for older kids and teens to have their own space. For chill-out time, the house has satellite TVs and a DVD player. With walking trails, cycle routes and horse riding available nearby, there are plenty of opportunities to get out into the fresh air and sunshine. Another great place to visit for a day trip is Lago Bolsena (56km), Europe’s largest volcanic lake where you can swim in the clear waters, go fishing or take a boat trip.

About the Location

The nearest shops and eateries are available in San Casciano Dei Bagni, which is under 5km away, quickly reached by car. The town has a number of bakeries, restaurants and shops dotted around the winding, medieval streets, as well as ancient churches, the town hall and a 14th century palace to visit. With architecture spanning from the Etruscans and Roman eras and stunning views of the Val d’Orcia valley, this is a lovely town to have so close by.

Also nearby is Radicofani (20km) known for its staggering fortress, Cittá della Pieve (20km) for paintings of the artist Perugino.

Style Notes

Historic and rural. Built in 1798, this elegant and spacious home has been refurbished using traditional materials to retain its original charm. The attention to detail is sublime, paired with the vast garden - with 10,000 m2 of lawns, olive, fruit and oak trees, dining areas and a pool lined with sun loungers, surrounded by beautiful vistas of the countryside and shade from ancient oak trees. Contemporary styling and modern bathrooms bring a sophisticated touch, finished with a chic palette of neutral and earthy tones. We love the gorgeous exposed rustic beams in the grand living area, the antique bedroom furniture and the spectacularly huge fireplace hearth in the dining room.
