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).

Cottage Delle Tolfe is a small gem nestled in the spectacular countryside just a few kilometres away from Siena.

  • 4.9/5 My husband and I along with two friends spent a week in September at this incredible villa. Upon our arrival, the electronic gates magically opened and we entered a beautifully manicured estate with countless fruit trees, grapevines bursting with plump grapes, fragrant herb plants, and 100 olive trees!! The view was spectacular as we overlooked a lush valley and church bells rang in the distance. We were captivated and fell in love instantly!! The house is lovely with a large living area that is nicely furnished. The kitchen is well appointed with great appliances and a first rate commercial stove. Stainless steel and Copper pots and pans are available to use as well as nice dish and glassware. If you love to cook, this kitchen is equipped for you!! The villa has three large bedrooms all with private bathrooms, plenty of storage, and nice bedding. Three couples could easily stay in this space without feeling crowded. Balconies surround the house with comfortable outdoor furnishings to relax upon while watching a Tuscan sunset or sipping wine and relaxing. A top notch washer and dryer is provided and Odette the maid is extremely helpful in providing help if needed. The pool is just perfect and the landscape surrounding it is pretty wonderful All I can say is WOW!! The owners, Guido and Serena were extremely helpful and could not have been more welcoming. They provided us with restaurant tips, traveling advise, Tuscan history, and friendship. Upon our arrival, we found a large wicker basket in the entryway filled with a variety of fruits, vegetables, pasta, olive oil, bread and wine along with a letter of welcome. To say the least we were touched and very appreciative. The location of this villa is approximately 10 to 15 minutes outside of the city of Siena depending upon the route you choose to take. The city of Siena and the many towns located in this part of Tuscany are filled with history, incredible architecture, delicious restaurants, and friendly and inviting locals. There is so much to see and do; you will be amazed everyday!! We had the perfect adventure and cannot wait to return!! Karen
