Countryside

If you require superior accommodation with an unmistakable touch of class, this fully refurbished, early 19th century, two-storey villa will not disappoint you. It is furnished with valuable antiques dating back to the 1700’s, complemented by elegant, Venetian-design mirrors, chandeliers and wardrobes. All the bedrooms have an ensuite bathroom with modern facilities. The secluded, hilltop location and panoramic views are simply stunning and have to be seen to be believed!

The property is centrally heated throughout. Its interiors are generously spacious and all their original structural features, dating from 1823, have been carefully preserved during the restoration process. These include the polished terracotta-tiled floors, the high vaulted ceilings, the colour-washed walls, and the numerous French doors. The highlight, however, is the traditional Tuscan pigeon-loft on the roof of the house, now charmingly converted into a romantic, low-ceilinged bedroom, complete with a balcony boasting spectacular, top-of-the-world views.

Elegant paintings adorn the villa’s walls and the soft furnishings are harmoniously co-ordinated in luxurious brocade. Many of the bedrooms feature typically Tuscan wrought-iron or wooden bedsteads. In front and to one side of the property extends a gravel terrace, fully railed-in, perfect for al fresco dining and relaxation. Just below, in a suntrap position, lies the grass pool-terrace, out beyond which stretches the idyllic scenic backdrop right over to the far horizon.

ACCOMODATION

495 square metres in total. At ground-floor level, you enter a large, bright hallway, which leads open-plan to the billiard-room, combined with the living-room. Issuing off here is a separate, comfortable TV room, equipped with elegant sofas.

On the opposite side of the hallway is the spacious dining-room, where a long table seats at least 20. French doors open on to the conservatory, where another long table invites you to dine while enjoying the views. From the dining-room you and the conservatory you access the kitchen, with its large chimney-breast over the cooking-range and central work top table, and French doors to the side-terrace. Appliances include: fridge-freezer, microwave, gas hob, electric oven, coffee-maker, toaster. Next to the kitchen is a downstairs double bedroom, with ensuite bathroom with shower.

On the same floor is a service bathroom with toilet and three washbasins, and the laundry with washing-machine, iron and board, and storage room. A stone staircase with banister leads to the second-floor. From the large central hallway you can access 5 double bedrooms (in 3 of them beds can be separated into twins) with ensuite bathrooms, one with corner Jacuzzi bathtub and 4 with shower. A separate little corridor takes you into two further double bedrooms (beds can be separated into twins) with ensuite bathrooms with shower.

A spiral staircase with a security-gate at the top, entices you further upwards to the converted pigeon-loft. This now accommodates a delightfully intimate double bedroom (beds can be separated into twins), with large ensuite bathroom with shower cubicle. From the bedroom’s French doors you step directly on to a sunny, walled-in balcony, which commands magnificent countryside views. A further section of the balcony is accessible from the little landing outside the bedroom. 

GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL

The asphalted country road to the villa winds its way uphill among vineyards, olive-groves and Cypress trees. The house is perched on a secluded hillside, with open views of the surrounding hills, farmland and hilltop-towns, such as San Gimignano on the far horizon. Here maximum privacy, clean fresh air and quiet are guaranteed.

The parking area is under tall, shady trees to the rear of the property and alongside this stands a covered loggia sheltering the outdoor BBQ and pizza-oven fully equipped with tables and chairs.

Bordering the house, colourful rosebeds flank the front gravel sunterrace, and brightly planted terracotta urns and lanterns for nighttime illumination dot the grounds. Mature trees, such as Cypresses, eucalypts and pines provide welcome shade, while the lawns around the pool are screened by rosemary and laurel bushes, as well as vines and olives.

The pool (18 x 5 metres) is accessed via a stone staircase and has an open-air shower to one side. A large sheltered gazebo hosts garden furniture and the lawn-surround is equipped with sunshades, lounges and thoroughly spoils you with its breath-taking Tuscan backdrop. The property grounds are fully fenced-in.

The pool has a thermical heating system and it can reach 30-36 Celsius degrees therefore upon request it can be open in the low and mid season for an extra cost of Euro 300 per week.

REVIEWS

Dear Annica, We would like to say a big thankyou for all the hard work that you did for our wedding. The meal you prepared for us was outstanding and the garden and dining table looked lovely when we arrived back from the wedding ceremony. The villa itself is beautiful and we are all still talking about how breathtaking the views are. Every single one of us thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would love to return one day. No matter how many times we rang you for advice, nothing was too much trouble for you. Please also thank Franco for the very tasty wine that he gave us, it was very much appreciated. Once again, thank you for everything.

Love Dawn and James from USA • 11 – 18 July 2009

The week we had at the Villa was great, the location and the sights are wonderful. The Villa itself is spacious and you feel right at home. Annica took wonderful care of us, and her suggestions where to go and where to eat were great. I wish we could have stayed longer, we'll be back!

Eldad from USA • 07 – 14 August 2010

Manola - Yes, sadly, we have returned from Italy. If only vacations would last forever! Thank you so much for arranging for our wine and tour with Andre and John Marco (?). They were wonderful! As for a review of the property, please feel free to publish all or any of the below comments: Upon arrival to the top of our very own Tuscan hill, we were greeted by the owners, Enzo and Christina, standing before a beautiful villa. We could not believe this was to be our home for the next week. The views from this property were better than any we saw in our travels. The bedrooms were all spacious; bathrooms all updated; the kitchen was fantastic. But nothing could compare to the covered terrace (steps from the kitchen and dining room) and pool area below where we spent all of our waking moments. The pictures on your website cannot do justice to the majesty of the views before us every day. It was like a dream. Enzo and Christina are lovely and so welcoming and treated us like members of their family. The location, just a few miles from the Certaldo train station, made travelling around the Tuscan region so easy, although the drive up the hill to our villa at night was more than a little scary for those of us not so familiar with manual transmission automobiles. The town itself provided us with all the basic amenities, like fuel for our cars and wine and groceries at the local COOP store. We would highly recommend this property to any large group travelling together and would highly recommend your services as well. Thank you again for all your assistance in the planning of this fantastic week!

Joanne from USA • 21 – 28 May 2011

Dear Croci, good morning! we really enjoyed and had a great time. Cristina an Enzo hosted us very well. We hope visting Tuscany again. Best regards!

Marcelo Sousa from Brazil • 05 – 14 April 2012

Hello from Maine! We had the most incredible stay at Villa La Veduta with our 16 friends. It is a gorgeous Villa that is close to everywhere in Tuscany. The hosts, Cristina and Enzo were amazing. They took special care of us and cooked us dinner on arrival and often stopped by with morning pastries. We were enchanted by the accommodations and everyone was delighted with their room and the spectacular views. Cristina and Enzo were available for all our questions and needs. We hated to leave. Thank you so much for your facilitation in connecting us with this perfect spot. Best, Kristine
