About La Residenza

Situated in the Golden Triangle, that joins Pisa, Florence and Siena, this luxury Tuscan villa is perfectly located. It allows you to enjoy the tranquility of the countryside and discover the riches of Italy’s Renaissance splendour.

Deep within its private, enclosed garden, secured by electric gates, La Residenza offers privacy as well as tranquillity.

This spacious, traditional Tuscan farmhouse was recently restored to the very highest quality, and converted into a luxurious retreat that is perfect for families and groups of friends.

The sympathetic restoration has maintained many traditional Tuscan features, including wooden beamed ceilings and terracotta floors. Yet many modern amenities were also discreetly introduced for your comfort, such as a 42m2 American-style kitchen, billiard room and four en suite bathrooms. There are a further two bedrooms in a separate property. The master suite in the main house is a triumph of design: windows on three sides create a light-filled room with panoramic views.

Many of the rooms on the ground floor lead directly out to the terraces and gardens. Here dining areas invite you to enjoy al fresco meals amid the surrounding Tuscan countryside. To work up an appetite there’s a 12x7m heated swimming pool with an adjacent whirlpool. This is how to truly see Tuscany in style: cocktail in hand with bubbles massaging the last of those stress areas away.
