Tuscan Estates















Sleeps 8

Villa san Giorgio is a large, welcoming villa set on a hillside between Florence and Siena, just a few kms.from Barberino Val d'Elsa. Just a few years ago it was an abandoned hayloft, but it has been rebuilt meticulously to a very high standard by the new owner; converting the old barn into a warm and charming country home. The interiors are wonderfully furnished with modern and traditional Tuscan pieces. Also retained are the beamed ceilings and the terracotta floors. The spacious furnished loggia, outside of the kitchen includes a shaded area for al fresco dining. A beautifully maintained garden surrounds the house, ensuring complete privacy. Below the hose is a very large pool, strategically positioned to enjoy the best view.

The large kitchen is extremely well equipped with a large fireplace and dining table. As in every house of rural origin, it is perhaps the main space, where the family gathered after a day of work to enjoy those typical dishes that we still find today on Tuscan tables.

Entering the living room, one realizes that the person who restored this hose did it with great care and passion. The floor is done in old terracotta tiles, the ceiling in chestnut beams, all authentic materials put together anew using the techniques of long ago, and with particular care towards the comforts of contemporary living. One is impressed by the attention paid to every detail - the fireplace with the stone molding, the steps and thresholds in chiseled "pietra serena", and the decorated walls. Overlooking the living room is a comfortable study / gallery with two sofa beds.

On the balcony overlooking the pool, one can sit and enjoy a drink or else lie in a hammock, breathing in the cool evening air. There is a fourth bathroom under this terrace which also has a sauna.
