In a quiet and magical atmosphere, Villa Antica offers guests a paradisaical location for a relaxing and delightful vacation throughout the entire year.
Originally a convent about a 1000 years ago, the villa later became a countryhome. In 2006 it was completely renovated and furnished while preserving the original architectural elements of this ancient dwelling such as stone walls, wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. At the same time, the owners sought to include all modern amenities in order to ensure their guests maximum comfort and an enjoyable stay. The home is spacious and spreads out over 2 floors in the main building with separate private quarters in the charming hayloft just a few steps away.
The ground floor features a bright and spacious dining room that opens onto the gardens, a large fireplace, two kitchens fully-equipped for all culinary needs and 3 living/sitting rooms offering perfect spots for reading, watching television or enjoying a good glass of Chianti. A servicebathroom is also on this floor as well as a lovely double bedroom with air-conditioning and en-suite bathroom with shower.
The second floor houses three double bedrooms and one twin, each with their own en-suite bathrooms. There is also another beautiful and spacious living room with sofas gathered around a second fireplace. A second service bathroom is located in the hallway and air-conditioning is available on the entire second floor.
The hayloft is located a few yards away from the main villa and offers a separate quaint and charming apartment with its own private entrance and outdoor patio. The ground floor features a sitting room with sofabed and fireplace, kitchenette, a dining table for two and a bathroom with shower. A set of stairs leads up to a beautifully intimate loft where there is a double bed and brick windows characteristic of Tuscan barns.
From the private gardens of Villa Antica the rich variety of plants, colors and scents are inebriating. The property features stone walls, flowerbeds, a vegetable garden and an orchard. A stunning swimming pool (15 x 7.50 x 2m).is completely covered in mosaic decoration and is surrounded by the velvet green hills typical of the Tuscan landscape.
