In the heart of Tuscany 15 minutes drive from Siena L'Orcio di Bardeggiano sits on a hill of Colle val d'Elsa. This private house is only a 2km from the town and also from the main road between Florence and Siena making it an ideal base for sight seeing.

The pool is 50meters from the house. It is a bio-pool that has many aspects of a clean private lake providing it with a charming atmosphere.



On entering the house you find yourself in a comfortable lounge that has a fireplace, TV and a computer with Internet connection. From here there is access to the terrace.

 


From the lounge a short corridor leads you to the dining room, and fully furnished kitchen that includes gas hobs, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and oven. A door leads into the back garden from the kitchen and the dining room. In the basement there is a washing machine. Also on the ground floor is a guest toilet.

On the first floor there are 3 bedrooms. At one end there is a double bedroom with separate dressing area to the back of the bed and an en-suite bathroom. This bathroom has a toilet, bathtub with hand held shower and a further separate shower cubicle

At the other end of the floor there are 2 twin bedrooms that share a bathroom with shower. These rooms look out over the garden. The whole villa is paved with wood and it has been built following bio-architecture styles to maintain a healthy environment. The twin beds cannot be made into doubles.

The villa was originally destined to be the home of the owner’s son, and therefore has been carefully decorated with antique furniture. Although to one side it is attached to the owner’s house you have complete privacy.



Massages, yoga, Italian and cooking lessons can be arranged on request. Reiki treatments are also available on request.

Internet WI-FI available in the villa for free. Please bring your own laptop.

Pool Info



The swimming pool is a bio-pool which has been made to look like a private lake in order to maintain harmony with the environment. The sparkling pool allows you to relax in total peace while enjoying the view of the old medieval town of Upper Colle.


To one side of the pool there are woods which provide cooling shade from the Tuscan heat. This angle of the garden is perfect for a relaxing break after a day of sight seeing.
The pool is 16x8 meters and open from May to October

Pros eine wirklich traumhafte Lage, beinahe schon kitschig, sehr ruhig, man ist völlig ungestört
Local attractions Überraschenderweise hat bei uns besonders Colle di Val d'Elsa besonders gepunktet, alle anderen klassischen Ausflugsziele (Siena, Florenz, Pisa ...) waren aber auch die Reise wert.

Pros Pleasant, helpful and accomodating owners; rooms were comfortable and well laid out; garden was lovely. It was a bit too cold to swim when we were there but the children did enjoy the biopool which was lovely and full of wildlife including a snake seen hunting the frogs in the pool one afternoon which was a highlight!
Cons The house is dark inside. Noise from the industrial estate at the bottom of the hill, does carry up it to the house so when sitting outside distracts from the peaceful surroundings. Mosquitos were bad but we were reasonably prepared for this from previous comments.
Local attractions It is a great location for getting out and about to the stunning wine regions, Sienna, Florence and other main attractions of Tuscany.

Pros L'étage est agréable. Bonne literie. Les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et la personne en charge de nous accueillir (Carlotta) est extrêmement efficace et disponible. La maison est à quelques minutes de la voie express Florence/Sienne, on est donc proche de beaucoup de sites intéressants. La piscine est très belle. Il y a des moustiques mais pas trop.
Cons Il y a un serpent dans la piscine naturelle qu'on voit régulièrement (non dangereux d'apres les propriétaires). Les marches de la piscine sont glissantes à cause de la mousse (ma belle mere a fait une mauvaise chute le premier jour et n'a jamais osé se rebaigner). Le rez de chaussée de la maison est très sombre et le jardin mal orienté. La maison est dans un bel écrin de verdure mais en bordure d'une zone industrielle et à quelques minutes de la voix express Florence/sienne. Les alentours manquent donc de charme et on entend dans la jardin un fond sonore de camions qui dechargent ou peut être d'usine.

Pros Lovely cool house, with good location. Perfect for hot weather. Great lawns for kids to run around on and beautiful surrounding area.
Cons The pool was too far away from the house - we hardly ever used it mainly for this reason. Also, the WiFi was extremely patchy. My husband had to sit in a corner of the garden to do his work.

Pros Der Naturpool, abgelegene, ruhige Lage, freundliche und hilfsbereite Vermieter.
Cons Eins der Auswahlkriterien war bei uns ein verfügbarer Internetanschluß bzw W-Lan. Und zwar nicht zum Vergnügen, sondern aus beruflichen Gründen. Leider war der Empfang nur in einer Wohnzimmerecke und das auch nicht immer bzw sehr schwach vorhanden. Ärgerlich war es, da vor der Buchung nochmal ausdrücklich nachgefragt wurde, ob ein funktionierender Zugang vorhanden ist.
Local attractions Siena, Florenz, Pisa.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The area
What was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent (see below). The swimmining pond was outstanding.
Did you have any unpleasant surprises during your stay with us?
Do you have any other comments regarding the accommodation or service? We were unable to have doors or windows open because the overzealous watering of the grass resulting in huge clouds of mosquitos. It was a bit like living in a swamp.

What were the highlights of your holiday? The environment of the villa, the ease of access to the nearby town, being in the centre of everything. The younger people were impressed by the biological pool.

what was your overall impression of the accommodation?    Excellent.

Did you have any unpleasant surprises? No.

Do you have any other comments? The beds in the secondary bedrooms were a bit saggy and need to be replaced. It would be helpful to have the computer situated at desk height rather than on the coffee table in the corner requiring you to sit on the floor to use it.
