Villa delle Rose
Villa delle Rose with its stone walls smothered in climbing roses and jasmine, its panoramic views all the way to San Gimignano and its spacious and contemporary interiors has you feeling like a true Italian.
The house is in two parts linked by a glassed-in corridor. The smaller side includes the large modern kitchen, perfect for Italian cooking lessons with plenty of room for everyone to get their hands in the dough. Adjacent to the kitchen is the dining room with a long wooden table that seats 16/20 people. On the second floor are two spacious ensuite bedrooms.
Walk through the glassed-in corridor (air conditioned like the rest of the house) to the living quarters of the property and here you will find two large living areas with arched picture windows looking out on a splendid landscape, plus one twin bedroom and separate powder room. Up a flight of stairs are three more bedrooms, with a master bedroom on the top floor. The eighth bedroom is located at swimming pool level and has its own studio with combined kitchen and living area.
