Casa Leonardo is a fantastic semi-detached Tuscan villa located only a couple of kilometres from Vinci, the birth town of Leonardo da Vinci. It's position on a hill top provides it with wonderful wide open views.
Across the flat, grassy garden and perched on the edge of the hill is a wonderful pool in the full sun. Next to it is a lovely terracotta terrace which looks out towards the views of the rolling Tuscan hills covered in fields and vineyards.
The villa is a restored stone and terracotta building on two floors. Around two sides is a covered porch paved in terracotta. This is furnished with a large table and 8 chairs for dining al fresco.
Three large, arched glass and wood doors lead into the bright living area from the porch. The room is a big open plan diner-lounge with the floor paved in the original terracotta tiles. The wooden dining table which can be opened up to seat 10 people is to the far end of the room, next to a well stocked side board.
On the other side of the spacious room is the comfortable lounge area. Here two armchairs and a double sofa huddle around a stone fireplace, ideal for the cooler Spring or Autumn nights. Off the lounge is a small hall with stairwell and a large bathroom with shower.
The modern kitchen is accessed from an open doorway off the lounge. It is also a bright room with a door to the porch and outside eating area. The modern units fit well with the antique Tuscan villa characteristics of the room. There is plenty of working and storage space in the well equipped kitchen, which includes an oven, large gas hobs, an indoor barbeque and a fridge with separate freezer. In the centre of the room is a breakfast table for 4 people.
On the first floor, at the top of the stairs is a small hall, off which is a bathroom with a Jacuzzi tub. Next to the bathroom is a bright double room has two windows, one of which looks over the garden to the pool while the other to the views on the side of the villa. The room is decorated with a low, wooden bed and a modern four door wardrobe.
A corridor goes from the hall to the other two bedrooms. The larger room is a modern double with a single window that looks out to the side of villa. Furnishings include a big four door wardrobe and a small chest of drawers. There is a narrow spiral, iron staircase to an attic floor which is not furnished.
The final bedroom is a small single room which also has a window looking out to the side of the villa. It has a three door wardrobe and a writing desk with chair. Like the other two bedrooms there is a TV in this room. The final room on the first floor is a storage room.


2 double bedrooms, these cannot be made into twin rooms
1 single bedroom


Some light industrial warehouses can be seen at the bottom of the hill but they do not detract from the overall views from the villa

Pool Info

In the simple but well maintained garden there is a pretty pool which is located across the lawn from the terrace of the villa. It sits on the edge of the hill and is partly fenced, from here there are wide open views of the surrounding hills with vineyards and fields.
The pool has a small paved surround with a couple of deck chairs to relax. While to one side is a beautiful terracotta terrace shaded by an large umbrella. On this are further deck chairs and a small table with a couple of chairs. It is the ideal area to sit and enjoy the fantastic views.
The pool is 8.5x3 metres and 1.2 metres deep. It is open from May to October, weather permitting.

Review date:
Stay: August 2014
Pros We liked the privacy with the good sized sunny garden ,nice pool and views.
The two main bedrooms were a good size and a substantial lounge /dining room
Excellent kitchen with good appliances
Stephanie and Jonathan were very helpful with tips for eating out in the area
Local attractions Agriturismo at La Burra was very good but you need a big appetite, we enjoyed eating twice at Restaurant De Museo and recommend reserving balcony table for the sunset
