Set at the end of a perfect drive, just few minutes from the walls of Siena and of the city centre, Cottage Delle Tolfe (250 sqm) sits on the top of a hill, and offers a magnificent view on the well-known Tuscan rolling hills. The ancient stone farmhouse has been recently converted into a very comfortable villa with every kind of amenity clients might demand: wi-fi internet connection, a swimming pool, terraced areas and so on...
The structure of this three hundred years old farmhouse has been maintained, with stone walls and steps that lead you across and down to the swimming pool (5 x 17 m / 16 x 54 feet) set in the small park with olive trees, cypress trees and terracotta vases. The property is composed by two ground levels with lots of shaded terraced areas, perfect for relishing the views and the warm weather during the long warm summer days, and thanks to its hill-top position, a cool breeze blows constantly during the day. There is also a large pergola with barbecue, overlooking the pool and the garden. From the fences and private gardenyou will have the possibility to enjoy breathtaking views of the countryside dotted with vineyards.
An elegant sitting/dining room with fireplace and a table for 10 people runs all along the ground floor with a charming stony conical shape column, restored and kept as a symbolic part of the original structure of the villa. You will also find elegant furniture such as sofas, armchairs and carpets. A Flat screen tv (55 inch. - with satellite channels and SKY included) is provided, with stereo, DVD player, video and music library.
A very well equipped kitchen leads out to the porch, with a table for 8 people, ideal for breakfast, lunch or dinner. On the opposite side of the ground floor is a wide terrace paved with "cotto", a perfect external living room with wooden armchairs and a coffee table. Finally, there are a bedroom with a queen size bed with its contemporary and stylish en suite bathroom, plus another service bathroom (no shower/bathtub).
On the lower level, that can be considered as a ground floor as well (the villa is set on a hill slope), is another large living room with a spinning bike and some gym equipments, another flat screen tv (DVDs included), a small library and another fireplace. There are a double bedroom (queen size) with an en suite bathroom with Jacuzzi and separate shower and the third and last double bedroom with an en suite bathroom (with shower). The laundry can be accessed from the garden (rear area).
