Additional amenities & feature info
You will be staying in the Villa Agrifoglia. At ground-level, with south-facing views of the property's hilly 6-hectare forest and stream, the 90sq.meter property contains 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. There is a double bed in each of the rooms. With a day-bed in the larger of the two bedrooms, the property easily sleeps 5. There is also room for a baby's travel cot, if you bring one. On the first floor, overlooking the 18 x 8m swimming pool and a valley of perfumed vegetation, there is an open-plan living and dining room with TV, DVD and small library. Should you get bored of the region's world-famous cuisine, our kitchen is fully-kitted out to satisfy even the fussiest chef, with enough seating and tableware to throw a dinner party for 8. Even at the height of summer, the house's traditional Tuscan construction keeps it cool and breezy. During the colder months, the property is warmed by centrally-heated radiators and a child-friendly raised wood-burning fireplace.
