This historical Tuscan estate is set on 3 hectares of private land and is one of the most exceptional properties on the rental market in Italy. Commissioned by the illustrious Chigi family and designed by the renown Sienese architect Baldassare Tommaso Peruzzi (1481-1536) the villa has been extended and enhanced over the centuries, and has recently undergone a complete restoration to create a contemporary country estate while still remaining true to its history and origins.
Situated in the Siena area of Tuscany, this holiday villa is situated in an excellent location, ideal to experience the beauty, culture, wine and gastronomy of Southern Tuscany. The property offers 6 luxuriously appointed bedrooms, 8 bathrooms, a state of the art professional kitchen, a summer kitchen, pizza oven, fitness room with Technogym equipment, a bocce court, helipad, a large heated infinity pool, and beautifully manicured gardens.
The ground floor of the estate has been designed with entertaining in mind, whilst at the same time providing enough options for those looking for privacy and peace and quiet. The main house has a beautiful sitting room with French doors opening onto a more private terrace with impressive hillside views. The sitting room is furnished in an elegant style and is connected to the kitchen and dining area, where there is a large travertine fireplace for winter evenings.
The bespoke professionally fitted kitchen and butler’s pantry beautifully compliment the high ceilings and unique terracotta columns. The interior spaces are bright with natural light, spacious and sumptuous in design. Every aspect of this grand property has been designed with luxurious textures and fabrics that layer each space, creating intimate and elegant interiors. The beautifully appointed bedrooms are fitted with Vispring beds, the finest Busatti linens and towels, individually designed travertine bathrooms and organic Tuscan toiletries. No expense has been spared to ensure an exceptionally comfortable and quality sleep. All bedrooms and suites are air-conditioned with under-floor heating; and have their own en-suite with showers, whilst three also have free-standing bathtubs.

The magnificent travertine infinity pool overlooks the private lake below the estate with far-reaching views across to the Crete Senesi and Val d’Orcia.
