Large holiday house with pool and tennis court near Montepulciano
Holiday home for 24 people
Large and charming Tuscan villa with great location close to Montepulciano
Situated in the most ideal central location in Tuscany, the villa is very close to the "must see" destinations in the region: Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza, Siena, and Florence, among others. 14 secluded hilltop hectares of beautiful traditional Tuscan landscape with olive groves, grape vines, and spectacular panoramic vista. Whether you spend the day swimming in the pool and soaking in the hilltop views, playing tennis on the private court, lounging around the more than 6,000 square feet in the nearly 700 year old villa, or strolling the cobblestone streets of the nearby medieval villages, the villa will greet you each morning with unparalleled beauty and calm.
Historical documents first mention the villa in 1331, but Etruscan ruins found on the property suggest that it is even far older than that. The first recorded owner found in documents from the 14th Century was Giovanni di Diagio da Torrita. The villa then belonged to the father of Pope Pio II, whose family owned the villa until 1873.
Guests will be welcomed by the managers who live on site and will help in making the stay as comfortable as possible. They will be able to recommend the best local restaurants, coordinate a wine tour for you, have fabulous chefs give private cooking lessons, guide you to the nearby hot springs and spas, and tell you all about the "hidden" architectural gems.
The villa offers all the amenities you'd expect – a large pool with pool house with WC, shower and fridge, tennis court, playground for children, gym, elevator, luxurious showers with jet massages, plasma television with the latest DVDs and satellite programming, and high-speed wireless internet access - and some that you wouldn't - flowers on your kitchen table, fresh eggs and vegetables from the garden stocking your kitchen, local wines standing by for your evening meal, and fresh olive oil.
The villa can be rented for up to 24 persons (children included), and consists of 12 bedrooms, 8 bathrooms + 1 separate WC, 2 kitchens, a huge living room with open fireplace, billiard room and bar and many other sitting rooms to relax and enjoy the Italian way of life.
