Casa Civetta is named for a small owl, one of several kinds familiar in the Italian countryside that you may hear chiù-chiùing in the evenings from nearby trees. Surrounded on all sides by superb rolling hills accented by cypress and olive trees, your Tuscany vacation villa is in a unique setting where every step you take offers another view of breathtaking beauty.
Throughout the property, traditional materials of rustic stone and brick, massive timbers and gleaming tiles are matched with typical Senese hues of rusts and golds. The rich tones of well-loved antiques, generous leather sofas and choice oriental rugs give the home a restful old-world feel while providing ample comfort and space. Fragrant gardens all round the house offer choice spots in sun or shade, and the fabulous pool is set just below the house where its broad terraces give you a grandstand view of the stunning surroundings. The four bedrooms in the main house and the independent guest house make this Tuscany villa an ideal choice for a mixed age group.
