This special large classic villa with 10 x 4 m private pool has been lovingly restored and modernised while retaining the traditional features and style of a 17 century merchant's home. Situated in the small Tuscan village of Sillicano, the villa is very comfortable and spacious. Six bedrooms - 4 double, 1 twin and 1 triple bedroom. 3 sitting rooms, kitchen, dining room, 6 bathrooms, covered veranda with stunning views across the valley. The hammock bed and comfortable furniture add to this special and stylish relaxing space. Free Wi-Fi provided.

Beautiful location, lovely house and pool
By Alison H. on 07-Jul-2016
The property was a good size for the number of people, and was easy to walk in and out of the village. the pool was a good and the views from the property were fantastic. the property was very clean when we moved in, and the owners were helpful though we did not meet up with them till the Sunday.
Authentic, well restored villa with plenty of character
By Karina on 07-Jul-2016
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful 15th Century Villa in Northern Tuscany. The outdoor pool was well used in the daytime and the open fire was lovely to sit around and chat in the evenings. The Villa was well furnished, with areas to congregate as a large group of 13 (in the dining room and around the pool on loungers) as well as plenty of alternative spaces including 2 balconies and seating areas indoors for smaller groupings and/or a bit of quiet time. The style is rustic and characterful and this building is very old so the sound does 'travel'; it's perfect if you're looking for a lovely authentic villa vacation in beautiful rural surroundings, however it's not the option to go for if five star luxury furnishings and 'mod cons' are your thing. The location is also worth noting - this is a perfect location for people who want to get away from tourist traps and experience the stunning natural beauty of the Tuscan Mountains and small local villages but it is fairly remote so be aware that you will need a car and a confident driver as the road in is very windy, with a few steep drops. It's not suitable for less able travellers as the car park is about 100m below the house and it's a very steep walk. The views are totally worth it though. The owner was very friendly and helpful, I would definitely recommend staying here.
