Villa Barberina

Italy - Tuscany villas - Chianti Villas

Basic information

Available from January to December. Location Countryside - Sleeps 16 - Bedrooms 0 - Bathrooms 8 - Pool

This recently completely renovated villa has an amazing position looking out towards San Gimignano. On your way to the villa you will pass through lovely towns such as Barberino Val d?Elsa and admire San Gimignano in the distance. The villa takes its name from an ancient and powerful city which was completely destroyed after many yeas of war at the beginning of the 13th century. Today you can drive through the small hamlet of Semifonte reaching the Cupola of San Michele Arcangelo (built in 1590) which is a faithful reproduction of the Dome of Florence Cathedral. The villa itself is beautifully finished in a modern style, its most significant features being several outside lounging and dining areas, covered by umbrellas or porticos to enjoy al fresco dining and stupendous views over the surrounding countryside, a theme carried into the building from where there are yet more beautiful views to be enjoyed.

    There are two buildings. The first you reach from the parking area is:
    The Barn. Entrance is into the large, modern and professionally equipped kitchen, from where a small hall leads into the dining room furnished with a large table sitting 18 persons, and at the end of the room up a few steps is a bathroom for guests. Going up more stairs, you reach a balcony that overlooks the dining area, from where you access the two large double bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom with shower. The other building is just a few metres away.
    The Tower. Walking down a few steps is a first living area with TV set, which continues to the left into another sitting area with a magnificent view of San Gimignano and the swimming pool below through large arched windows. Access to the outside terrace is through French windows. Again inside a few steps lead up to a twin bedroom with bathroom with shower. The outside patio is accessed from here. There is a guest bathroom on the ground floor.
    First floor: on the landing to the right is a twin bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. Back to the landing is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with double sinks and double shower with a view. Back to the landing to the left is a very bright sitting area with large arched windows which allow a view of the countryside around the villa. There is a large fireplace, to the right of which is a double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. In the small corridor that leads to the bedroom is a small kitchenette. From the sitting area, 8 steps lead to the master bedroom which has a four poster bed and a walk-in closet up a few steps. The en-suite bathroom has a view and a large bathtub and shower. The swimming pool and Jacuzzi tub are on the lowest level of the villa and are reached via steps from the sun bathing area.
