Villa Tenaide - Tuscany, Italy


Once an old farmhouse, Villa Tenaide is now a lovingly restored country house, updated with modern conveniences while maintaining its stone architectural charm. The villa is set atop a hill offering terrific panoramic views of the rolling Chianti hills. Thanks to its solid structure and position where a constant cool breeze flows, the summer heat cannot affect the interior temperature of its rooms. For those in the exploring mood, nearby they will find the beautiful Siena, and the hill towns of Montalcino, Pienza and San Gimignano are easily reachable by car for day excursions.

Set just north-east of the medieval hilltop city of Siena, 3km/2miles, Villa Tenaide is the most serene and peaceful haven where to spend an unforgettable holiday complete with views of the Tuscany countryside. The villa stands at the end of a driveway and it is reachable via a paved road. The nearest shop, bars and restaurant are only 1km away. Siena offers a great variety of activities including a weekly open-air market on Wednesdays. The villa is positioned in a truly wonderful location to visit the most sought-after San Gimignano, Montalcino and Florence, which are all within easy reach, about 1 hour drive, or even Pienza, Montalcino and the Val D’Orcia, one of the UNESCO heritage sites, along with the Crete Senesi.

OUTSIDE FEATURES--the villa is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and woodland. It is fenced and adorned by well-kept hedges, which contribute to the maximum privacy of the guests. The wide terraces on three sides of the house are furnished with tables and chaise lounges. The west side terrace, in particular, is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset and the breathtaking views of the rolling vineyards. A pergola, just outside the kitchen that overlooks the swimming pool and the courtyard, is ideal for breakfast and lunch in the shade. A 17m x 5m private infinity pool (fenced), that can satisfy the passionate swimmers (constant 1.5m depth with steps for entry/exit), is set in a very well manicured garden.

GARDEN LEVEL--elegant expansive sitting room provided with a dining area comfortable to sit up to 10 people. Its focal point is a working fireplace, surrounded by comfortable sofas, and a unique original cone-shaped stone column. A well-equipped kitchen opens onto a pergola that overlooks the swimming pool and courtyard, ideal for breakfast and lunch or dinner al fresco.

LOWER LEVEL--A vestibule, partly converted into a functional and equipped gym area, leads to the three bedrooms: double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with Jacuzzi tub and separate shower, double bedroom with an en-suite bathroom with shower, and twin bedroom (convertible to king) with an en-suite bathroom with shower. A laundry room is also available on this floor.
