From its prime position in the Tuscan hills, your gorgeous home-away-from-home provides panoramic views over the beautiful Val di Chiana. In recent years Il Vallone has been lovingly restored by its architect owner to combine the charms of Tuscan country living with a contemporary sensibility. Original features such as the mellowed brickwork and the internal shutters on the windows speak of its authentic history and accent its understated decor.
Yet for all this history, modern comforts abound: spacious living areas have generous sink-in sofas, the delightful wrought-iron beds have quality linens and mattresses, the bathrooms are done with typical Italian finesse, and the kitchen is fully equipped for some serious culinary experimentation. Outside there are fragrant gardens and woods to explore, while an elegant pool looks out over endless miles of beautiful Tuscan countryside. What better formula can there be for a memorable Tuscan vacation?
