A SUPERB PROPERTY WITHIN EASY REACH OF TOWN CENTRE

Villa Il Colto is a delightful property extending over three floors, in a rural location but with the small nearby town within easy reach. Its strategic hilltop position suggests it was once an outpost of the nearby fortress. It was subsequently converted into a residential property, and at one time belonged to members of the celebrated Florentine dynasty, the Medicis. There is a private swimming pool in the grounds of the villa, which looks out across the rural landscape and also to the town just a kilometre away. A wide range of shopping facilities can be found in town, including supermarkets as well as smaller stores. There are also bars and restaurants here.

The villa stands in two hectares of grounds. The garden sweeps down the hillside from the house at the summit down to an attractively cultivated area with olive and fruit trees. The scientific interests of a former owner have endowed the garden with a number of more exotic trees in addition to the familiar local species.

At the front of the house is a terrace with a 4 by 8 metre swimming pool and barbecue. Glass doors lead out to this area from the living/dining room on the ground floor.

The landlord, an architect, has painstakingly renovated the property to tremendous effect. The villa can sleep a party of twelve and has everything they will need for their stay. Villa Il Colto is the ideal springboard for discovering Florence, which is just 40 minutes away, and for the Chianti region and all the many attractions of Tuscany. The village is handy for Arezzo and Siena, which are half an hour and one hour away, respectively. Shopaholics will find plenty to keep them happy, including the famous Italian names. We will be delighted to help with arranging high-quality tours, whether you are looking for culture, sightseeing, winery visits or shopping.

There is plenty of space here, making the villa ideal for extended families holidaying together. The owner’s architectural skills have been brought to bear on the recent refurbishment, which was carried out to the highest of standards and with considerable panache. The renovation is faithful to the house’s rustic origins while supplying the comfort and amenities of the present day. There is a sense of refinement about this villa, which boasts many carefully chosen pieces made by the craftsmen of the region.

Ground floor

The entrance hallway leads to a very large living/dining room, which features an open hearth and carefully chosen hand-made furniture. This room has CD and DVD players, satellite television and even a wireless printer. The dining section is quite formal in style, with a large table and original vaulting in the ceiling. The kitchen is spacious and features a kitchen island, two ovens and a good-sized hob. There is a high standard of equipment including fridge-freezer, dishwasher and microwave oven. There is also a laundry room, which has a washing machine and tumble drier. A bathroom with a shower completes the ground floor.

The pool, solarium and garden can be reached from the living room via large glazed doors. This outside area, with its parasols and sun loungers, is a true haven of tranquility. There are two terraces here, one at the front of the house and one at the back. With a patio set, barbecue and even a pizza oven, the garden is a delightful place for an outdoor meal or to contemplate the sunset over a relaxing drink.

First floor

From the hall on the ground floor, stairs lead up to another lounge, again with an open hearth and satellite television. The first floor boasts five bedrooms, and there is another up in the turret. Two bedrooms with twin beds (although one of them can be made into a double) are on the first floor. These have a shared bathroom and shower. There are also three double rooms. Of these, two have bathrooms en-suite, with a tub in one and a shower in the other. The remaining bedroom uses a separate bathroom on the other side of the landing. This bathroom, which also serves the turret room, has a tub, a shower and a double basin. There are hairdryers in all the bathrooms.

The first floor is completed by a study, where you will find a computer with fast broadband Internet and printer. Each of the first-floor bedrooms has window screens and is air-conditioned.

The turret

Finally, an attractive twin-bedded room is to be found in the turret on the second floor, which was a look-out point in the Middle Ages. This room affords panoramic views thanks to the windows on three sides. Like the other bedrooms, this one is air-conditioned. The shared bathroom is down on the first floor.

Villa Il Colto is the ideal springboard for discovering Florence, which is just 40 minutes away, and for the Chianti region and all the many attractions of Tuscany. The village is handy for Arezzo and Siena, which are half an hour and one hour away, respectively. Shopaholics will find plenty to keep them happy, including the famous Italian names.
