Formerly an olive mill, this Tuscan villa combines rustic charm with modern design elements. Just outside the small hamlet of Iesa, the villa is nestled in the serene Tuscan hills, surrounded by verdant countryside. Downstairs you will find the original stone olive mill, alongside chestnut beams, exposed stone, and terracotta tiling across the house. This preserved charm is compounded by contemporary bathrooms, and a sunroom with floor to ceiling windows, where you can admire the oil painting of a view. On cooler nights, gather here with a drink in hand for a movie or to play some music. Outside there is a table which seats ten, for al fresco dinners before a spot of stargazing.
No detail is spared here. From the food and drinks hamper waiting for you in the kitchen on arrival, laden with complimentary wine, olive oil, fruit and cooking supplies, to the range of activities available to book through your host, whether it be horse riding, a cooking class, or a cycling trip. There is no better area for lovers of nature and beauty. There are plenty of nearby hiking trails through untouched woodland, with panoramic vistas over the countryside. Hop in the car for fourteen minutes to reach Terme di Petriolo, famous natural hot springs set in a wooded valley. After a day of exploring, cool off in the enormous pool, before an aperitivo and a sunset barbecue. La dolce vita.
