Privacy is the premium at villa Tea. A vacation in this holiday home for rent in Tuscany, surrounded by rolling hills, sloping vineyards and olive groves, is a perfect retreat for just you, your friends and family to get away from it all. Behind the simplicity of a typical Tuscan farmhouse, villa Tea reveals in detail the careful restoration of an architect who wanted to maintain the original structure, which dates back to 400 years ago. The furniture, fabrics and the well-equipped kitchen great for cooking lovers, are all designed in order to secure a very comfortable stay.
This villa doesn’t have only a perfect location for visiting Siena, Florence and the Val D' Orcia in a week; the strategic location of this beautiful house offers much more. It is located in an incredible position, South East of Siena (15 minutes driving), also close to the Crete Senesi and the Chianti areas. Near the villa, there are three very important places dating back to the Middle Ages: Castello di Montalto, Monastero d' Ombrone (now a five-star resort and spa, Castel Monastero) and Badia d' Ombrone. These three historical sites are within a good walk from the villa. At Rapolano, a few minutes drive, there are two spas with thermal baths. They are very intoning during autumn and springtime.
The villa is very private and immersed in the silence of nature. Garden lovers will appreciate the variety of roses in the fenced in garden. The house is surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and forests. The nearest neighbour is one kilometer away.
At Tea you can enjoy the dry climate and the breeze running through the house in the summer evenings. This is due to the hillside location of the house and the thick texture of the old walls.

"Would you recommend your villa?: Definitely
Service before travel: I received excellent support from HomeinItaly staff prior to travel. Booking chefs to cook at the villa was more difficult this year because of increased demand, but we obtained the necessary service in the end. I recommend booking chefs well in advance – they are already taking bookings for August 2024.
Service while on trip: problems were addressed in a timely fashion. The main electricity switch tripped while we were there, for example, and concierge staff guided us to the solution of the problem.
Villa location: the villa is in an elevated secluded location, and is very peaceful, which is what we like. It is surrounded by woodland to the north and west, but there are panoramic views to the east and south, with Mount Amiata clearly visible 60 kilometres away.
Staff in the villa: Alfredo, the keyholder, and Rita and her daughter, the cleaners, were immensely kind and helpful throughout our stay. Clean towel replacement could have been more frequent.
Cleanliness: the villa was kept very clean.
How would you rate this property?: I think this is probably the best villa we have rented during our many trips to Italy. It is actually even more attractive than the photographs on the website suggest. Inside, the kitchen was large and well appointed. The bedrooms had comfortable beds and well functioning air conditioning. Outside, there were many places to sit and relax, and to dine al fresco. The pool was large and kept very clean.
How would you rate Home in Italy services?: excellent."

"I would recommend Tea, it is a lovely place. An excellent option if someone wants a quiet place far from the city buzz.
The staff at the villa is very nice and effective, keeping good care of the house and the guests. Home in Italy services have been excellent before and during our stay."
