Villa Nova is located in a very favorable position on a hill surrounded by a private garden immersed in the verdant Tuscan countryside. The villa enjoys stunning views of the surrounding hillsides and of the medieval town of San Gimignano which lies just less than 3kms away. This lovely villa was once an ancient watch tower and its origins go back about 1000 years. The structure went through centuries of activities and strife and at some point the tower was halved in height. Four years ago, restoration was completed and the result is a charming and elegant atmosphere where guests are invited to immerse themselves in the quiet simplicity and beauty of rural Tuscan life.
The interior of the villa is about 650 square meters in area (6,997 square feet) and is spread out over two floors. The decor is simple but elegant, combining modern furnishings with hints of classic country chic. The result is a very sophisticated yet relaxing and welcoming atmosphere.
The main entrance to Villa Nova opens up onto a luminous and spacious living area with high ceilings, comfortable sofas and a large flat-screen TV. One wall is completely fitted with glass, filling the room with natural daylight. Two steps up lead to a second and smaller living area with leather sofas and another flat-screen TV. Next is a sitting area and a winding staircase that leads up to the second floor. Adjacent to this is a large, fully-equipped, modern kitchen and the elegant dining room. Off the side of the main living room are also two double bedrooms with ensuite baths and a separate guest 1/2 bath and laundry room.
At the top of the spiral staircase there are three bedrooms each with ensuite bath. Two have a luxurious bathtub situated directly in the bedroom (there is no shower in these rooms), adding to their charm.
On the same floor but accessible only through a panoramic terrace are two more double rooms (each with ensuite bath) that can become a private suite for a family of four.
All rooms and baths are different one from the other but all are impeccably furnished, luxurious and comfortable. Each bedroom has its own flat-screen TV. The bathrooms are all modern. Flooring is either in wood or terracotta. Some rooms also offer amazing views of the surrounding countryside.
The house is surrounded by a beautiful, well-kept, fenced-in garden that leads to the poolhouse and swimming pool (12x6m, depth 115cm - 170cm, open from 9:00am to 8:00pm). The pool house, once the haybarn, hosts a small summer kitchen, a dining room, a sitting area and a bathroom. Next to the pool are lounge beds and a gazebo equipped for outdoor dining.
In the summer, caretakers and gardeners come every morning to tend to the garden and pool.
Villa Nova belongs to a farming estate that produces exclusive wines and fine extra virgin olive oils, in a separate location just a few kilometers away. A tour of the winery with wine tasting is included for all guests as part of the stay at the villa.
