Villa Tornia is a charming five bedroom villa located in the heart of Chianti near the Pontassieve where the Arno and Sieve rivers meet, just twenty minutes south of Florence and close to the factory outlets – where you can get famous designer’s merchandise at a fraction of their retail cost! The villa has a two bedroom annex located ten meters behind the villa and the whole estate can easily accommodate up to 16 people. Villa Tornia is quaint and beautiful, and your hosts Maureen and Momo, who speak English, French and Dutch, live only 100 meters away and graciously help guests have a perfect Tuscan dream holiday!
Set on a 170 hectare estate this comfortable, well priced, modern villa, is perfect for families who want to experience Italy without having to break the bank to do so!
Villa Tornia’s main house features a large living room with a wood burning fireplace, furnished with comfortable traditional Tuscan furniture. There is a small library/study where there is an ethernet connection for high speed internet access. There is a spacious well furnished kitchen with seven burners, an indoor dining room, and a guest bathroom. Upstairs on the first floor (second floor in the American vernacular) there are five bedroom suites each with its own en-suite bathroom. The master bedroom has a loft with a twin bed which is perfect for families with small children. The annex was originally a stable, and later a limonaia where the owner’s family used to keep their lemon trees in the winter. The annex has a small living room with a fireplace, a kitchen and a small dining room. There is also a sauna and a pool where guests can cool off after experiencing the heat of the sauna. Upstairs in the annex are two bedrooms, one with a queen size bed and the other with two twin beds. Each bedroom has its own en suite bath. The annex will never be rented separately from the villa and when guests only need five bedrooms it is left vacant.
Just outside Villa Tornia’s kitchen is a covered dining area providing the perfect setting for those who want to enjoy al fresco dining.
The villa has a lovely salt water swimming pool. Poolside there are sun lounges and umbrellas.
Villa Tornaia is on a large 170 hectare estate (420 acres) and serves as a refuge where hunters cannot go. Consequently there is an abundant population of deer, pheasants, wild goats and wild boars who share the estate with you!
