Located in Tuscany, on the border with Umbria, in a quiet secluded area, Villa Durante, offers a place to live the countryside in a refined way, a villa where you can feel at home with style and refinement in a pleasant rural setting. This superb family villa has been carefully restored to maintain its original features. The traditional stone lintels and tiled ceilings are juxtaposed with contemporary comforts in bedrooms and living areas designed with understated elegance by combining antiques with works of modern art. The property features an infinity pool, available to guests and private use. Olive groves, wooded areas and a pond complete the beauty of the villa.
The access to the house is through a beautiful garden, composed and designed in an elegantly geometric way, creating green frames around the inviting outdoor spaces. Stunning views of the countryside allow you to admire the Tuscan and Umbrian hills, with their castles that dominate the peaks. This imposing manor house, surrounded by over seventy acres of its own land, is available for weekly vacations rentals and is also ideal for the cooler periods thanks to the heated swimming pool. Portable AC units can be installed in the Tower and the Master bedrooms.

"The most enchanting house with breathtaking views, nestling in the middle of completely unspoilt and gorgeous countryside. The only sounds are breeze, bullfrogs and bells from a nearby village. The loggia, pool and gardens and walks through many acres make for the perfect hide away. The interiors are stylish with clever use of local antiquities, artefacts and furnishings. It is a rare treat to stay in such an exquisite private house."

"The farmhouse, pool area and gardens were enchanting and suited us perfectly in every way, and it was beautifully set up in terms of relaxation and lifestyle. The kitchen and BBQ were very conducive to self-catering, and the local shopkeepers, both in the little supermarket in Pergo and the butcher and bakery in Mercatale were so friendly. Local restaurants were nice, and they even had a 'senza glutine' one called La Tufa in Ossaia, to cater for one of our group!"
