Our villa is less than 1 km away from a medieval town called Citta della Pieve. Most villas are in the region are anywhere from 5-15 km from the nearest town or village which makes it a bit of a chore to get to. Citta della Pieve has plenty of restaurants, bars, cafes, shops and amenities to choose from, but still has the old world charm of an Italian countryside town. It is also in a good location to go on day trips to nearby towns like Chianti, Siena and Florence.
The villa itself was built in the 14th century and has been renovated into a holiday home. It has 2 pools, a fully equipped kitchen, a wood fired pizza oven, a spacious patio/lawn area and 5 acres of beautifully kept fields and gardens. There is a main villa with 7 rooms and an adjacent house with 3 rooms and each room has its own private bathroom. You can see the rooms at the website above.
While in Italy, you’ll have an Italian guide who will take you to the various places noted in the itinerary above, but who will also serve as a concierge will be available during your free days to offer suggestions on activities/excursions based on your interests, help you make reservations, rent bicycles, etc.
