Located in an exceptionally beautiful, lush and varied Tuscan landscape dotted with olive groves, vines, fields of wheat and sunflowers, this luxury villa Flora is a perfect retreat to rent for authentic Italian summer holidays.
Situated where the provinces of Pisa, Siena and Florence meet, the villa is just a short distance from the well preserved historical towns of San Gimignano and Volterra. Although the property is situated in the open countryside, there is a good and traditional restaurant nearby, while shops, cafés, bank, post office and chemists are a few km away.
Flora is a traditional 1800 Tuscan farmhouse which has been recently renovated with great attention to details and now offers the ultimate facilities. The original elements such as the terra cotta floor, chestnut wooden beams and stone walls enhance the modern restoration to provide a comfortable environment.
The villa has two floors for a total of 250m2 and can accommodate up to 11 guests. On the ground floor, there is the fully equipped kitchen with a full range of modern appliances, a dining room and a cosy living room with comfortable sofas and satellite TV, a wheelchair-friendly bathroom and one double bedroom. A stone and wrought iron staircase leads to the first floor, where the three en suite double bedrooms are located. Finally, a spiral staircase connects the second floor to the lounge room of the tower offering a 360° panoramic view of the landscape.
The villa has under-floor central heating and air conditioning throughout.
Villa Flora is surrounded by a spacious 6.500m2 fenced in garden and offers many outdoor dining areas, a porch and a pergola where it is possible to relax on the comfortable sofas. The private swimming pool has a hydro-massage zone and a small waterfall leading to a second smaller pool, ideal for children.

"Pasamos unos días encantadores en el hospedaje de Francesco, la casa era tal cual no la describieron con el típico aire toscano, con una terraza hermosa la cual utilizamos a menudo, Francesco nos recibió muy bien y siempre estuvo disponible para brindarnos cualquier información y recomendaciones de la zona, por ejemplo a pie se puede ir al mejor restaurante de la zona atendido por un amigo de Francesco con una comida exquisita y servido con gran familiaridad para compartir. Recomiendo 100% este hospedaje y sin duda volveremos algún día."

"We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Flora!!! Everything was perfect and even better than it looked on the website. Francesco and his team were the perfect hosts, arranging a restaurant, wine tour, and a gourmet meal cooked for us at the villa, all of which were fantastic! The setting is gorgeous, and Montelopio is as quaint as you can imagine - we loved our morning capuccinos at the little cafe/shop! We hope to come back someday! The only minor complaint: the freezer was broken, so no ice... And one tip: bring mosquito repellent - they are ferocious in the evenings!"
