Villa Rovere is a 300 sqm (3230 sqft) countryside villa dating back to the 17th century, built entirely using ancient terracotta and stones. The villa is situated just 1.5 km (1 mile) from the center of a charming village, on a hillock that dominates the Chianti hills, and 12 km (8 miles) from Florence which makes it an extremely convenient base for explorations of the city and of rural Tuscany. Just 1 mile away also lies one of Tuscany's most prestigious golf courses.
In front of the main entrance to the house, there is a beautiful covered patio with dining table and a lounge area featuring bamboo furniture. Behind the villa, there is an al fresco dining area with a round stone table that overlooks the luxurious private swimming pool surrounded by laurel bushes, cypress hedges furnished with sunbeds and a gazebo. The estate stretches over 20 acres of land, cultivated with vines and olive trees. The owners of the estate produce San Giovese red wine, Trebbiano white wine and extra virgin olive oil on the land.
On the ground floor of the villa, there is the dining room, a double living room with fireplace, a fully-equipped Tuscan kitchen and a bedroom featuring 2 twin beds (can be joined to make a double bed) and an en-suite bathroom with tub/shower combination.
On the second floor there are two bedrooms featuring 2 twin beds each (they can be joined to make double beds). Each room has its own en-suite bathroom with tub/shower combination. On this floor there is also the master bedroom featuring a queen-size bed, walk-in closet and en-suite marble bathroom with tub and shower stall. 2 extra beds may be added to this spacious room.
A staircase leads up to the tower room, a cozy space that houses a single bed.
The villa has a total of 5 bedrooms (4 doubles, 1 single) accommodating up to 9 guests (+2 extra beds may be added in the master bedroom). All twin beds can be joined to make double beds.
A guesthouse is also available for larger groups at an additional cost. The guesthouse has its own private external entrance and features a queen-size bed, kitchenette and bathroom with shower.
Villa Rovere is available for short term rentals of minimum a week, preferably from Saturday to Saturday, all year round, or for fewer days in the low season from November to March.
The owners of the estate live in an adjacent villa so they are always available to assist their guests. Each villa however is private and has its own outdoor spaces.
Please note: There is no air-conditioning available in the villa because its thick ancient stone walls keep the indoor temperature cool even during summer months.
There is about 1km (0.6 miles) of unpaved gravel road before reaching the villa.
