LA VILLETTA is ideal for people wanting a place in a beautiful country setting with lots to enjoy locally, and also easy access to the great cities of Florence, Siena and beyond. The house and its extensive garden is in a small, quiet hamlet in a superb scenic setting looking up into the Pratomagno Mountains. It is several hundred years old and has been fully renovated, retaining traditional Tuscan features. There are shops, restaurants, bars and other amenities all within easy walking distance. LA VILLETTA consists of two floors, and may be used either as a THREE BEDROOM HOUSE (using the upstairs sitting room as a bedroom) or as two fully self-contained apartments, each with its own entrance; the only connecting door, at the bottom of the stairs, may be kept locked or open as needed. ...LA VILLETTA is ideal for people wanting a place in a beautiful country setting with lots to enjoy locally, and also easy access to the great cities of Florence, Siena and beyond.

The house is ideal for a family, or for two families sharing a holiday together. On each floor there is a good sized double bedroom (with an additional folding single bed), a sitting/dining-room with a fully equipped kitchen area, dining table etc; upstairs it also has a very good double sofa-bed (there is also a more basic sofa-bed in the downstairs sitting room). There is a bathroom on each floor with a shower, bidet (upstairs only), a hand basin, a toilet and all other usual features. From the very large and beautifully laid out garden there is a superb view up into the mountains. The garden has lawns, patios, shaded and covered areas (including pergolas) so that visitors can always find a private spot to sit, sunbathe or eat. There are several outdoor tables, chairs and sun-loungers. As well as shrubs and flowering plants there are herbs for cooking. There are two mountain bikes in the garden shed which visitors are welcome to use. More

About the neighbourhood
The rural community of Cascia lies in the foothills of the beautiful Pratomagno mountains, on which the light is constantly changing - tree clad high up, descending into olive groves and vineyards, punctuated by old buildings and lines of cypress trees. The area is renowned for the freshness of the air, and the local olive oil is held to be amongst the finest in the world. People interested in walking, flora, fauna or art and architecture will find the location ideal. Cascia is famous for the Masaccio painting and superb Romanesque church. There are several other fascinating villages and towns nearby, as well as excellent shopping and numerous restaurants and bars. Good transport gives easy access to the wonders of Florence and beyond.
Getting around
Being near both AI (Milan-Rome) motorway and near a the mainline station on the Florence-Rome line transport is very easy. There are also a range of local bus services. You can be in Florence in less than 30 minutes. On the other hand there are lots of quiet and very beautiful back-roads so you can drive at your leisure through the beautiful Tuscan countryside.
