Set on a gentle hill sloping down towards the valleys of Mount Amiata (the highest peak in Tuscany), one gets to the villa by driving along a dirt road dotted with vineyards and yellow brooms. The garden is also plenty of scented lavender and rosemary bushes, it’s furnished with a patio for enjoying “al fresco” meals. Some steps down lead to the swimming pool area commanding superb views over the country side and surrounded by olive trees. Beside the pool a stone built BBQ with a rustic table. Please note that access road is a steep country road not suitable for low cars. Also, owner's dog lives in the garden.
