Villa La Veduta is an elegant and superb XVIII century villa. It is furnished with valuable antiques and thanks to its hilltop location you’ll have the pleasure to admire simply stunning panoramic views.
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.
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, 1.4 meter deep) 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.
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.
