In a landscape of rare beauty
The elegant farmstead Villa Olivo is located in the most coveted region of central Tuscany. Strategically positioned in the middle of the Golden Triangle - Florence, Siena and Pisa - it sits on top of a hill looking out onto the panoramic valley to south-west. Surrounded by vast groves of olive trees this property will impress you with stunning views of the gently rolling hills leading to the ancient towers of San Gimignano. The silver-grey of the olives blends with the dark green of cypresses, creating a spectacular show of colours. The surrounding landscape resembles the background of Renaissance paintings admired in the paintings of Leonardo, Botticelli and Benozzo Gozzoli. The guests are free to stroll through the olive groves and adjacent vineyards, and sample the Chianti wines and olive oil produced by the family-owned farm. The farm organises wine tastings free of charge in the nearby wine cellar, and the recently awarded Super Tuscan wine is excellent.
The property consists of three buildings: the villa with tower of the property owner in the middle, adjecting to it a farmhouse with pergola transformed into four guest apartments on the right and a detached former barn some metres distant on the left (Capanna Olivo / also featured in our portfolio). The four apartments are an atmospheric ambience designed with loving care for details. The layout and the decoration was a project of the property owner Paola. She invested a lot of time and love in choosing the right marble, tiles and light fixtures for the kitchens and the bathrooms, and in finding the right material for the sofas and armchairs as well as having a few choice pieces of antique family furniture restored. With sun pouring in through the French windows, its pastel colours and stunning views we think this estate is a the perfect place for an unforgettable vacation. Amenities include air conditioning (although you'll rarely need it, as the hilltop location allows for maximum circulation of Tuscan breezes), satellite TV, radio, cooker, fridge, microwave, electric kettle, toaster, American coffee machine and hair dryer. A beautiful garden path decked with flowers leads to a magnificent Mediterranean style swimming pool with Roman steps. On return from a day out, you can relax here whiling away late summer afternoons with a favourite novel.
