Exterior Description
(28,000 m2)

This beautiful, 16th century farmhouse, located at an elevation of 600 meters, offers spectacular views of the Sieve Valley. The seven-acre property is a blend of informal landscaped area and gardens, wildflower-covered meadows with grazing sheep, and a wooded area with olives, grapes and many fruit trees. It is very private and secluded, even though there are other properties on the hillside. To access the house there are three kilometers of country road, followed by one kilometer of maintained, winding dirt road. There is a swimming pool (12 m x 6 m) and plenty of outdoor furniture: a large table and chairs for dining on the terrace, lounges and a table and chairs by the pool – all with umbrellas for shade. The pool is open from early May to late September. The owners live in the apartment under the main part of the house.

Interior Description
(500 m2/5,382 ft2)

The house has been completely restored with terracotta floors and wooden-beamed ceilings. It is a rustic-style property that has been comfortably furnished with a blend of English and Tuscan antiques.

Ground Floor: There is a well-equipped kitchen with a table and chairs, a formal dining room, a sitting room, another sitting room with a large Tuscan fireplace, and a bathroom (with tub, shower, bidet, WC).

First Floor: There are two large bedrooms (each with a double bed) and two large bedrooms (each with two twin-beds). One of the twin-bedded rooms connects to the master double bedroom, making it best suited to children. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom (with bath, shower, bidet, WC). There is another bathroom (with shower, WC).

Partial Lower Floor: Downstairs, attached to the owners' apartment, there is an additional double bedroom with an en suite bathroom (with shower, WC) available for an extra cost.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyed Most:
The property is gorgeous and nicely furnished.
Enjoyed Least:
NO SCREENS on the windows. Website says that the windows have screens. Editor's Note: In fact, the owner has screens for all of the windows and will put them up if requested.
Nearby Events or Locales:
Londa is the nearest small town. It is definitely not within walking distance. Too dangerous to walk down the narrow lane from the villa to the road leading to town.
Tips or Restaurants:
The owners are fantastic hosts. They have furnished the villa with everything that you could need or want. They are extremely friendly and full of knowledge about the local areas.
