Italy, Tuscany, Inland 9 Bedrooms 10 Bathrooms Sleeps 12 to 17
The Val d'Orcia is a wonderful area, due to the protection of the natural beauty of its enchanting landscape so much so that it is recognised to its artistic heritage, and for these reasons recognised as a Unesco World Heritage Site. It is in this marvellous natural context that Faggeto is set, formerly a convent and recently transformed into a villa of high standard and great charm.
A path lined with old cypress trees leads up to the villa, which is completely fenced and where the noises of the modern world cannot be heard, but where you are simply surrounded by gently rolling green hills and where a real sense of peace and quiet reigns supreme.
The villa offers every convenience: from the pool and the carpet-surfaced tennis court, to the double pool house, one complete with sauna and shower and situated below the pool, the other next to it, with changing room and a bathroom with shower.
Within the gardens there is even a lovely little fenced lake. The villa has a billiard room and two computers with wireless internet connection.
Faggeto is on three floors. The ground floor consists of spacious and light dayrooms. The kitchen is particularly lovely, complete with high standard furniture and furnishings. It is modern and extremely practical. From the kitchen, just as from all the other rooms on the ground floor, there is direct access to the garden.
Only one bedroom is on the ground floor. The others are on the first and second floor. The style of all the bedrooms and the conveniences provided in them are all the same. This is what makes this villa a perfect choice for groups of friends. The bathrooms, too, are similar, their travertine and local terracotta tiles creating a mix of pastels that are pleasing to the eye. The towels are top quality.
This hilly part of south-eastern Tuscany is also famous for its beneficial thermal baths. San Casciano dei Bagni offers a fabulous spa and thermal pools. Cetona is an enchanting Tuscan town with a couple of well-known restaurants and the weekly market well worth a visit. This is the real Tuscan countryside! For lovers of good wine, Montepulciano, where wine cellars offer wine and art, is a must.
The shops closest to the villa are at Radicofani (10 minutes from Faggeto, 6km/3.5 miles) and the supermarket and biggest shopping centre are at Chiusi. The villa can also be easily reached from the motorway, exit Chiusi, which is 25 km from Faggeto.
