Villa Veduta

Villa Veduta is an exceptional villa with an equally exceptional broad view of Tuscany‘s Val d’ Orcia Valley; a Unesco World Heritage Site.

This Tuscan villa has just been restored; the interior completely new, blending contemporarily with the rustic ambiance of traditional Tuscany Villas. Villa Veduta sits on 3 acres and enjoys the most stunning views over the valley and its hill towns like PienzaMontalcinoRadicofani and San Quirico. This has been an outstanding restoration project of the very highest quality. Villa Veduta is luxurious in every way, and the fabulous and stylish interiors are the creation of an internally renowned interior designer! A vast terrace surrounds the villa with several pergolas, patios and roofed dining areas from where one can enjoy 360° views of the valley. Guests also can enjoy the hot tub watching the sun set over this vast valley. The fabulous infinity pool is perfectly positioned with unobstructed views and is only a short walk away from the villa. 

A spacious kitchen provides the perfect setting for those that like to cook! If guests prefer having authentic Tuscan cuisine, using fresh ingredients from the local markets and the vegetable garden can be provided by the excellent cook. On the subject of food, we just have to bring up wine! In our Tuscany Wine Tours, you will experience the many wines of the Tuscan Region. For example, Sangiovese grapes are the most popular in Tuscany. Young Sangiovese has fresh fruity flavors of strawberry and a little spiciness, but it readily takes on oaky, even tarry, flavors when aged in barrels. In our Tuscany wine tour package, we will be sure to educate and share with you our deep passion for wine, one sip at a time! For more information on our Tuscany Wine Tour Packages, consult our Tailored Experiences page.

With two living rooms and a dining room downstairs and a further living room upstairs, there is ample space for guests to relax and spread out. For anyone who would enjoy visiting Tuscany in the cooler months, two of the living rooms enjoy lovely open fireplaces in addition to underfloor heating throughout the property. All of the bedrooms are spacious and individually styled and furnished with exceptionally comfortable beds, top quality linens with views from every window. 

If you’re wondering what can be done when you’re bored, look no further than the nearby towns! Day trips can be made to Siena and Florence. This villa is 30 minutes from the Umbrian border which has lots of other options, almost making it too hard to decide. This Tuscan Villa sleeps up to 18 guests in eight bedrooms (5 double rooms in the main house). The master is on the main floor, but the other 4 bedrooms have outside entrances. This makes for a very private experience without sacrificing time together downstairs in the main living space. There are three more bedrooms (can be either twin or double upon request) in the annex. The annex is to the side of the main house. Below and is reached by stone stairs and lawn. There is garden lighting at night. Not suitable for people with mobility issues. All en suite bathrooms. Full built-in air conditioning in each bedroom. Suitable for families traveling together wishing to have a bit more privacy. Only cars and vans that hold up to nine guests can reach the top driveway that has access to the sidewalk leading to the house. Should you require something larger (a mini-bus for touring), it will have lawn access to the main house and is accessible to people with mobility issues. It is definitely easy for guests to enter through the front entrance, but those with walking or balance issues would need assistance. The villa includes a gate at the lower level of the driveway which requires getting out and entering the code. The gate is wide enough to accommodate a mini-bus up to 20 guests, NO larger. The villa comes equipped with satellite TV, VCR, DVD, CD player for I-pod, and free WI-FI access. No radiators, heating is provided by an underfloor system. Power for house heating and air conditioning is included, as is solar heating for the pool. Firewood for the fireplaces is included as well.  9 bedrooms/11 bathrooms  700 m2/7534 sq. ft.
