THE PERFECT TUSCAN LOCATION !
C’mon! Spoil yourselves! A, “once in a lifetime”, pure LUXURY retreat, this sensational villa is situated in an exclusive and sought after corner of the globe.
Located in the famous province of Sienna, you are in the even more famous commune of San Casciano dei Bagni. Indeed, the 4C village of San Casciano dei Bagni, just 2 kms away, holds the official title of one of the "prettiest villages in Italy" (borghi piu belli d'Italia)! Many country trails lead to the village from the villa. And once there, you’ll find bars, restaurants, shops… a bustling little borgo with fantastic views all around!
The area of San Casciano dei Bagni is famed for its 42 hot water springs. Throughout the ages, Etruscan and Roman nobility, including Augustus, the famous Roman emperor, have gathered here to luxuriate in waters of 40+ degs C. And it’s free of charge!
All of this is just 2 kms from the villa!
In addition, there’s the famed and beautiful Lake San Casciano (2 kms sq), 15 kms from the villa.
You could not wish for more! You will love this area!

This fairy tale Tuscan villa + cottage with pool, set in extensive grounds and parkland sleeps 14 adults + 4 children/young people.
Importantly, the owner wants to emphasize that if you are not into serenity and mediation, that if you prefer the boom boomy din of the disco, you can make AS MUCH NOISE AS YOU LIKE. You can hire a band and/or you can sing and dance in the grounds all night long.
This is a fantasy place, where you can release your inhibitions any way you like!
This idyllic hideaway is a perfect venue for wedding feasts, anniversary events, special reunion celebrations and birthday bashes. We, even, host end of school or college semesters and graduations for young people aged 18 +, many might say, a brave move on our part!!
Obviously, we trust that everyone, especially the youngsters, will respect the property, the pool and the grounds AT THE SAME TIME as partying the night away.
REFUNDABLE DEPOSIT DAMAGE – no one has ever been charged !
There is a refundable damage deposit of 500 euros that we take as an insurance policy against VANDALISM or SERIOUS damage.
