Casa di Pietra
Casa di Pietra is a large, welcoming and restored farmhouse, now a luxury villa rental, set on a hillside between Florence and Siena.
This villa is ideally located between Florence and Siena, near to Poggibonsi, 3 km. San Gimignano: 15 km, Florence 35 km, Siena 30 km.
Just a few years ago, the house was for all practical purposes an abandoned hayloft, but it has been rebuilt meticulously to a very high standard by the new owner, converting the old building into a warm and charming country home. The spacious, furnished loggia, outside the kitchen, includes a shaded area for outdoor al fresco meals. The large kitchen is well-equipped and features a large fireplace and dining table. Entering the living room, the floor is done in old terracotta tiles, the ceiling in chestnut beams and bricks, all authentic materials put together anew using the building techniques of long ago, and with particular care towards the comforts of contemporary living. Overlooking the living room is a comfortable study gallery with two single beds. The three large bedrooms (two queens and a twin bedroom), all with parquet floors, are upstairs. One of the bedrooms has a door leading out to a large paved terrace overlooking the garden and the pool. The queen bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with tub, there is another bathroom with tub, and a third bathroom with shower.
Outside, one can sit and enjoy a drink on the balcony overlooking the pool, or else lie in the hammock that gently rocks us, as one breathes in the cool evening air. From the hills across the way, one can hear distant echoes of work going on in the fields. A fourth bathroom, built under the terrace that overlooks the pool, has a sauna, which completes the picture of the relaxation offered.
Facilities include fireplaces, TV, telephone, hi-fi, barbecue, garage with laundry and washing machine, air conditioning, private outdoor areas, equipped swimming pool (7x14) with pergola, changing room in the swimming pool area with fridge and bathroom with shower and sauna, equipped terrace with pergola adjacent to the kitchen.
