Antiche Rose is a lovely Tuscan villa which gets its name from the 100 old fashioned rose bushes that are on the property. It is a modern yet unusual villa furnished to a high standard with plenty of artistic touches from the owner who is an artist.
The pool is located a few steps away from the back terrace of the villa. It is surrounded by a simple yet pretty wooden fence and a lovely wooden deck ideal for sunbathing. It is perched on the edge of the slope overlooking the trees. To one side is a steep drop, care must be taken when there are children at the pool.
Antiche Rose has plenty of furnished terraces and garden spaces to enjoy the sunny Tuscan outdoors. There are two pergola covered terraces with table and chairs to dine al fresco. Next to the larger of the two is a pizza oven and fantastic barbeque area. Around the villa is a spacious, covered veranda comfortably furnished with iron sofas with cushions.
This fantastic Tuscan villa is entered on the first floor from the garden and veranda. Inside is a large kitchen with plenty of work an storage space. It is well equipped and includes two sets of gas hobs, two sinks, a dishwasher, an oven and a fridge with a separate freezer.

To the other side of the room is the sitting area composted of modern armchairs and a sofa around a free standing fireplace, perfect for the cooler evenings. There are plenty of seats for 8 people. In one corner is the TV with free satellite channels.

The ground floor is accessed from the lounge by a large staircase. It has two bedrooms, both with picture windows which provide them with plenty of light. The first is a modern blue bedroom that has a couple of steps on either side to the sunken level where there is the double bed. It is furnished with a chest of drawers.

Pool Info

The pool is located to the back of Antiche Rose, only a few steps away from the villa. It is surrounded by a wooden but open fence and a large wooden deck. In the fence is a small gate providing access to the pool. This is a sunken pre-fabricated pool.
To one side is a pretty, wooden bed with two mattresses and covered by curtains which provide shade, making it an ideal place to relax and enjoy warm Tuscany. Dotted around the deck are sun chairs and a couple of sun beds. There are no views from the pool due to the lovely forest that surrounds the property.

To Tuscany team comments for this review:

22.09.2014
This villa has several furnished terraces, although the main terrace enjoys afternoon sunshine. The photographs show the pool area is surrounded by trees, the house is decorated with 100 rose trees, where the villa name originates. There are large opening windows in each room. There is a second fridge for clients use in the utility room. The weather was unseasonable wet during August 2014, this added to the humidity of the air in Tuscany.

Pros Antiche Rose is een fantastisch huis op een prachtige plek. Bij aankomst stond er een mand met levensmiddelen klaar....een heel mooi welkom. Je komt er tot rust op een van de terrassen onder de rozenpergola en blauwe regen, of luierend op het loungeterras. Bij het zwembad is het natuurlijk ook heerlijk vertoeven. Antiche Rose ligt in het niet-toeristische deel van Toscane. Dat maakt het voor ons extra aantrekkelijk. Kleine dorpen in de omgeving met cafés en terrasjes waar je voornamelijk de eigen bewoners aantreft, terwijl de bezienswaardigheden van Toscane alle binnen bereik zijn. Kortom: genieten!!!
Cons Wij kunnen niets bedenken
Local attractions Per trein naar Florence (station is slechts een paar kilometer van Donnini) is een aanrader. San Gimignano en Sienna zijn prima per auto te doen vanaf Antiche Rose. Heerlijke biologische Toscaanse gerechten gegeten in Pietrapiana, richting Reggello bij restaurant La Pietra Piana.

Pros La tranquillité des lieux, la piscine, grande et très bien entretenue, l'aménagement de la maison, le cadre superbe...
Cons Le câblage électrique est assez particulier (disons, artisanal), le wi-fi pourrait être plus rapide, et le frigo et le lave-vaisselle pourraient être plus grands et de meilleur qualité.
Local attractions Les villes de Florence et de Sienne. Le petit bar sur la petite place de Donnini est aussi à fréquenter (très typique...).
