La Noce di Francesca is a wonderful Tuscan villa divided into three independent apartments which are all in the same building but do not intercommunicate. The property is on an estate which produces olive oil and has fruit trees.
There is a pool located in the well maintained garden, a few steps away from the villa, in a lovely spot with full sun. Behind it is an orchard while to the front are excellent views between the villas on the estate.
On the ground floor there are two one bedroom apartments while the first floor has a larger three bedroom apartment. The first is has an open plan lounge and dining area, with the kitchen off to one side behind a large arch. The sitting area has a very simple sofa for three people but has plenty of Tuscan character provided by the exposed stone wall and the traditional ceiling of terracotta tiles and wooden beams.
Next to this is the dining area. It has an antique wooden table with six chairs. While against a wall is a simple, antique wooden sideboard. The room is completely paved with modern terracotta tiles to maintain an authentic Tuscan villa feel.
Behind the arch is a narrow and basic kitchen which has the original grey stone sink. A large cooker with gas hobs and an oven is tucked in a corner while to the opposite end is a small fridge with internal ice box. There is limited work and shelving space which makes this kitchen suitable mainly for simple meals.
The spacious bedroom is to the back of the apartment. It has double bed with an unusual headboard made from the old barn door. In the room is a three door wardrobe. The double bed can be converted into a twin if requested when booking. The bathroom with shower is next to the bedroom. The shower has no shower tray making it suitable for guests with limited mobility.
The second apartment on the ground floor is also with exposed stone walls, terracotta tiled floors throughout and a ceiling of terracotta and wooden beams. On entering there is a large open plan lounge, kitchen/diner. The sitting area is composed of a wooden sofa with plenty of comfortable cushions, it seats three. In front of it is a matching wooden coffee table.
The dining table with four chairs is located in front of the kitchen area. The two areas are divided by a low wall topped with a lovely oak table for preparation of meals. Behind this is the rest of the kitchenette which includes gas hobs below the window, an oven and a small fridge with internal ice box. Outside is a little, furnished terrace.
Off to one side is a beautiful, wonderfully large bathroom with shower. Completing the apartment is a double bedroom. The bed is located below the arched window that looks out to the wonderful views which surround the property. While against one of the walls is an antique wardrobe.
Steps lead up from the garden to the first floor where there is the largest villa. Inside is a spacious and bright open plan living area with kitchen to one side. The kitchen has a large stone sink under a window which provides it with plenty of light. Although there is not much work space it is well equipped and includes a big cooker with gas hobs and large oven and a fridge with separate freezer.
In the centre of the room is a wooden dining table which can be opened up to seat comfortably 10 people. There are two sitting areas. The first is with matching cream sofas for two people each. While the second is in a cosy area where the ceiling slopes low so care needs to be taken. It has a low, wooden cushioned bench and a three low wicker stools.
The first of the double bedrooms is immediately off the sitting area. A single step leads into a room with exposed stone walls and a sloping ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. There is limited light in the room due to a small window but it is spacious and is well furnished, including a double door antique wardrobe. This room can be set up as a twin if requested when booking.
A short corridor leads to the master bedroom which has an en-suite bathroom with shower. The room has an iron double bed, a large wardrobe, and an antique chest of drawers topped with marble. The window of the room looks out to valley below and has breathtaking views.
The last bathroom with shower is at the end of the corridor. Next to it is the final double bedroom which can be made into a twin if requested when booking. The bed has the unique head board of a whitewashed stable door. A floor length window provides the room with plenty of light. Storage space is provided by a wooden wardrobe in the hall.
5 double bedrooms, 3 can be set up as twin rooms if requested when booking.
4 bathrooms, one of which is en-suite.
The three apartments do not intercommunicate.
During the summer months the owner lives in a villa on the property. They do not use the pool.
They can offer guests the various products that they produce on the estate, including olive oil and jams.
