Much like the half rendered-half stone exterior of this two-floor detached house, the guest accommodation splits horizontally between ground and first floor. Whether only for four people on the first floor, or with an extra two guests on the ground floor, the two floors are independent of each other but rented out in their entirety for one price.
Hidden away at the end of a recently tarmaced, traffic-free, private road, this villa nestles amongst superlative countryside. Its garden and pool area mirror the rural beauty all around with an expansive lawn and large pool.
The Renaissance town of Castiglion Fiorentino is 6 km away and is an impressive sight when approached from any direction. Higher than the Valdichiana plain that it dominates, the town has atmospheric bars on piazzas, open-air restaurants and culture aplenty - the old Gothic church of San Francesco and the Madonna della Consolazione temple are worth a visit.
The essentials of banks, chemists and a good variety of food shops are found in Castiglion Fiorentino or in the shopping complexes on the plain underneath. Cortona is another town that seemingly floats high above the Valdichiana plain - literally a jewel of a hill town - without accompanying hordes of tourists.
An electric sliding gate reveals the parking area and the 7 steps up to the illuminated garden and pool area with outside shower. The furnished swimming pool measures 12 m x 6 m and depths of 1 m x 2.20. The owner is a passionate gardener hence he tends to the grounds himself.
