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.

The villa was just restored; the interior is completely new, blending contemporary with the much sought out Tuscan rustic ambience.

Villa Veduta sits on 3 acres and enjoys the most stunning views over the valley and its hill towns such as as Pienza, Montalcino, Radicofani and San Quirico. 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 a 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 and beyond and guests can enjoy the hot tub watching the sun set over this vast valley. The fabulous infinity pool is perfectly positioned with unobstructed views a short walk from the villa.

A spacious kitchen provides the perfect setting for those that like to cook but, if guests prefer to have authentic Tuscan cuisine, using fresh ingredients from the local markets and the vegetable garden, can be provided by the excellent cook.

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 enjoys 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.

This location is great for the best of the famous hillside Tuscan villages including Montepulciano, Pienza and San Quirico and day trips can easily be made to Siena, Perugia, Assisi and Florence.  This villa is 30 minutes from the Umbria border which has lots of other options, almost making it too hard to decide.

Sleeps up to 18 guests in 8 bedrooms  (5 double rooms in the main house). The master is on the main floor, but the other 4 bedrooms have outside entrances which make for a very private experience without sacraficing time together in the downstairs 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 9 guests can reach the top driveway that has access to the sidewalk leading to the house. Should you be using something larger  (mini bus for touring), it will need to drop guests at the first driveway, which has stair and lawn access to the main house and is not suitable for people with mobility issues.

It is certainly easy for guests to come in the front entrance, but those with walking, or balance issues would need assistance. The villa has 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.

Satellite TV, VCR, DVD, CD player for I-pod, free WI-FI access.  No radiators, heating is provided by an under floor system.

Power for house heating and air conditioning is included, as is solar heating for the pool. Firewood for the fireplaces is also included.
