Tuscan villa hospitality at its best

THE HOUSE HAS FOUR LIGHT AND AIRY BEDROOMS, all ensuite, accommodating up to eight people in supreme comfort. Each room is customisable with either a single superking bed (180cm) or twin single beds (90cm each). A further two people can be accommodated on a high quality sofa bed (with sprung mattress) in the sitting room.

Pure Egyptian cotton sheets, light-as-a-feather duvets, and silk-lined handmade Tuscan mattresses and toppers all mean that a great night’s sleep is a given. Soundproofed bedroom doors mean that the only interruption can come from the windows opening onto the panoramic views of the Serchio Valley. In the hotter months whisper-quiet air conditioning guarantees a restful night.

SPECTACULAR ENSUITE BATHROOMS combine the old and the new: finished in slabs of pale cream Tuscan travertine, they are separated from the bedrooms with glass walls, doors and shower cubicles, emphasising and not hiding the authentic architectural details of the building. Walk-in rain showers are generously-sized; the two larger bedrooms have standalone marble bathtubs “with a view”. All bathrooms have bidets. Bedlinen and towels are changed weekly.

The best night’s sleep I’ve ever had. Period.
