Vacation Rental Property

The farmhouse has been divided into 5 apartments and a detached beautiful stone house, each decorated in traditional Tuscan style. Stone fireplaces, cotta floors and dark chestnut-beamed ceilings lend an authentic, welcoming air to the accommodation. These are comfortable flats, with good lighting and simple, classic furnishings.

The house lies in extensive gardens and has a large, well-kept swimming pool. Furnished with tables and chairs, and equipped with a barbecue and oven, the garden is perfect for al fresco meals in the long summer months. Walkers and nature lovers can take advantage of the many tracks and paths that wind through the surrounding countryside, even strolling down to the Castello di Pierle - owned by the same family as the Villa, and one of Tuscany's most striking castles.
