Picture yourself driving down an unassuming gravel road lined with cypress trees leading the way to an 11th century beautifully restored villa offering unforgettable views of olive groves, vineyards and gentle rolling hills. This luxury hilltop villa provides a remarkable sense of seclusion set on 12 acres, yet it is the perfect vantage point from which to explore the medieval villages.

Upon arrival, rather than the doorman, Ms. Marion, the owner will be there to welcome you with open arms to her discreet hideaway estate. With her gracious and down-to-earth approach to hospitality she embodies a genuine and carefree way of life making you feel at home the moment you arrive. The property was originally purchased to be a private estate for her family. But, once you cross the threshold of the villa you’ll feel the love and dedication that went into the four year restoration and understand why the owners decided it was much too beautiful not to share with others who share a respect for the history of the property. Talking with Marion you can’t help but love her passion for carrying on the tradition of the age-old Tuscan lifestyle.

Nestled between the olive groves and the hilltops, this Tuscan retreat is home to postcard – perfect sunsets and fabulous 360 degree vistas with state-of-the art technology.  One of the oldest and best-preserved estates in Tuscany, the estate offers eight suites in three separate buildings, as well as a spa, small chapel and swimming pool. With a maximum of 16 guests, you will experience a combination of intimate luxury and the ultimate seclusion yet it’s just a stone’s throw into town.

One of the oldest and best-preserved estates in Tuscany, the villa is conveniently located between Florence and Siena. Originally home to the famous Verrazzano wine family and Giovanni Verrazzano who discovered the New York Harbor the famous property sat in ruins and was neglected for years until the current owners purchased the estate and restored it into the luxury property it is today.

While the villa doesn’t have its own winery, no worries, the fashion designer Roberto Cavalli’s son owns the vineyard down the road and he keeps the villa’s historic cellar well stocked with his award winning wines.

Built on the site of a Roman settlement, whose origins date back to 1085, the historic villa, barn, church, tower and other buildings have all been meticulously restored and repurposed. The vibe is luxury without being pretentious. You can’t help but kick off your shoes and gaze out at the sunset with a glass of Chianti Riserva in hand. Exposed wood beams, brick ceilings, stone and wood floors, keep with the historic nature of the past while there is a touch of modern mixed in with handcrafted designer furnishings and artisanal pieces in a sleek modern style.

The main villa consists of four spacious suites with ensuite bathrooms on the ground level, a formal dining room with seating for 18 guests, a sitting area with a cozy fireplace, a historic wine cellar, and a fully stocked chef’s kitchen.

The restored barn is now the Hideaway Suite offering privacy – it is a place of great peace and tranquility where you can lounge on the secluded terrace and let your senses take over.

In the Tower Building are three additional suites a short distance from the main villa. Other additions include a wellness space, and a small chapel from the 15th century.

The eight luxury suites located in three different buildings are nothing short of majestic and decked out with all of the modern conveniences you could ask for. They offer exceptional comfort, super comfy king sized beds, Egyptian cotton linens, rainfall shower heads, and designer toiletries. Each of the rooms is unique by design and includes either a sitting area or separate living space complete with antique Persian rugs. For example, in the Ruffoli Suite there’s even a stand-alone cast stone tub with gorgeous views from the window, a marble walk-in shower and a crystal chandelier.

Let’s face it; the villa is exceptional but in September it is all about the outdoor spaces! There is no shortage of terraces, sun-decks around the pool, sitting spaces and places for alfresco dining with fabulous sunsets in the background. It’s about living outdoors and spending time with your loved one and friends, while being surrounded by the friendly and accommodating staff. Spend the day relaxing on one of the daybeds by the pool, have a massage, go cycling or horseback riding or anything else you wish to do.

Rest assured, everything has been thought out to ensure you a relaxing stay with outstanding views!
