Il Girasole is a simple Tuscan villa located 13km from Siena, in a lovely countryside position but within walking distance to a village with a pizzeria and café. From the villa there are fantastic views of the rolling Tuscan hills covered with wheat and sun flower fields.
In the fenced garden there is a small fenced, pre-fabricated pool which looks out towards the open views. While next to the pool is an area with sunbeds to relax and enjoy the Tuscan sun.
Immediately in front of the villa on a paved terrace is a pergola that shades a beautiful, heavy iron and terracotta table with four chairs. A few steps away is a large barbeque. The entire area looks out over the pool to the fantastic views.
On entering the ground floor level of the villa there is a bright kitchen/diner. In the corner is the kitchenette. It is well equipped with gas hobs, and oven and a fridge with separate freezer.
The wooden dining table sits in the middle of the room and can comfortably seat 6 people. Next to it is a pretty, antique side board. The entire room is in traditional Tuscan villa style with terracotta floor and a wooden beam ceiling.
Down a short corridor are two of the bedrooms. The first is a small room with an iron double bed and a double wardrobe and a chest of drawers. The bathroom with shower is next to this room.
The bedroom at the end of the corridor is a spacious room with glass and wood doors that access the garden and provide the room with plenty of light. In one corner is a chest of drawers with a mirror while against the back wall is a four door wardrobe.
From the kitchen there are spiral stairs to the lower level, which is partly underground with a vaulted terracotta ceiling and light provided by a glass door to the one side. There is a large, cool living area with a double sofa in a corner, a dining table with four chairs and a kitchenette. The kitchen unit is fully equipped and includes gas hobs, an oven and a fridge with separate freezer.
Behind a glass wall with door there is a bright, double bedroom with an ironbed and a modern double door wardrobe. A triple glass and wood door provides access to a lower paved terrace which has a small table with two chairs and an umbrella. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
3 double bedrooms, they cannot be made into twins.
2 bathrooms, one is en-suite.
Air-conditioning is included
The property is fully fenced with a wood and chicken wire fence. It is pet safe if all the gates are kept closed.

Pool Info

The pool is an above ground pre-fabricated pool with incredible views of the Tuscany countryside with its rolling wheat covered hills. Along one side it is at the same height as the garden, a fence protects it from the garden, and there is a little gate to access the metal steps that enter the cool water.
The sun bathing area is to one side, in the garden on the other side of the fence. It is a lovely grassy area in the full sun, dotted with sun beds and an umbrella which look out to the views over the hedge.
The pool is 7x3 metres and 1.4 metres deep. It is open from May to September, weather permitting.

Stay: September 2014
Pros The villa was in perfect location in the hills about 12 km from Siena and was surrounded by fields of sunflowers - Girasole in Italy, thus the name. The grounds were lovely. The villa was very well equipped. The owners were very helpful.
Cons The only negative we had about Il Girasole was that the wifi was intermittent and was a dial up mobile system. For us in selecting a place it was very important to have a reliable wifi. The owners were aware of the problem and were working to come up with a better system/provider
