Salve Regina is a pretty Florentine, country style villa a short distance from the Chianti town Tavernuzze. It's wonderful position not far from the main roads to Florence, Siena and into the Chianti, makes this a fantastic property for sight-seeing. There is also a restaurant within walking distance.

The terraced gardens, dotted with olive and fruit trees, are well maintained. At the top there is a large fenced pool with several sun-beds. From this part of the property there are great views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
Passing from the pool to the villa, there is a gravel terrace with a pergola shading a large wooden table with benches. To one side is a big stone barbeque and pizza oven. The terrace looks out to the Chianti hills with fantastic views. Going down several steps to the front of the villa, there is another terrace, paved in terracotta and furnished with a small table with chairs and a couple of sun-beds.
Inside the villa there is a lounge paved in terracotta. It is simply furnished with a triple sofa and three armchairs. To one side is a large, glass door which provides plenty of light and leads to the garden. In the centre of the room is a dining table with four chairs.

Off the back of the lounge, up a couple of steps, is an open kitchen dining room which leads out to a terrace covered with a pergola supporting an old vine, this area has plenty of shade and vines across the valley. By the dining table is an open fire place perfect for the cooler months of the year.
The kitchen area is open with low units facing towards the dining area, behind are double doors which are directly onto the terrace, this area is perfect for cooking for inside or making a BBQ in the terrace as there is great access to the kitchen when eating inside or outside.
A door at the end of the dining area leads to a twin bedroom with en-suite facilities. Entering the room there is a window to the left looking towards the front lawn, there are two singles beds with a fitted double wardrobe including hanging space and drawers. To the right a door opens to a sink and WC with a large separate shower in the corner.
Wood and metal stairs lead from the lounge to the first floor, which is paved with wood. On the landing there is a wardrobe. This floor has two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. The first bedroom has a large double bed, which is composed of two single beds. If requested on booking this room can be made into a twin. The room also has a couple of chairs, double leather sofa, small built-in wardrobe and a writing desk. A large arched window looks out to a fantastic view of Tuscany. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.
The second bedroom, is a pretty room with a double bed. This room has a terracotta floor, and a traditional Tuscan ceiling of wooden beams and terracotta tiles. There are a couple of armchairs around a wooden table. En-suite is a bathroom with shower. This room is not as bright as the other rooms in the villa.
The fourth bedroom is accessed externally. From the garden some stairs lead up to the first floor where the bedroom is found. It is a very simply furnished double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower. There is a wardrobe, TV and a single bed set up as a sofa. Below the single bed are some drawers. This room can be used as a twin if necessary.


The villa is semi-detached to the owner's villa by a covered pergola, which the owner also uses.



There is a dog on the property, therefore pets are not allowed.

Pool Info

The pool is located on one of the higher levels of the terraced garden. It is not far from the owner's villa and the car park. The pool area is completely fenced, and surrounded by a hedge. The pool is surrounded by a large, well maintained lawn, dotted with olive trees. On the lawn, on either side of the pool is a wooden bench in the shade of an olive tree.
The pool is surrounded by a terracotta paved sun deck. To one side is a metal pergola covered with cane, shading the loungers below it. There are further sun-beds on the lawn and a large cushioned bed. A small table with a couple of chairs completes the furniture around the pool. Next to the pergola is a small changing room with toilet, the shower is a cold shower next to the pool.
The pool is 13x6 metres and 1.5-2.2 metres deep. It's open from May to October.
Above the changing room is a small paved terrace furnished with a couple of chairs and a table. From this part of the garden there is a fantastic view over the olive trees of the property and beyond onto the Tuscan hills covered with vineyards, olive groves, cypress trees and forests.
The owners, and their young family may occasionally use the pool.

Unfortunately there was a storm that caused the internet and other electrical systems to fail. The owner repaired the internet as quickly as they could but a technician had to be called for the TV. They apologise for any inconvenience. The house has been checked for mice and there are no longer any present.

Pros Stunning views, lots of space inside and out and an excellent pool. Owner was lovely and met us with a chilled bottle of wine.
Cons Not a great choice of restaurants within walking distance but facilities at the villa were excellent for self catering
Local attractions Easy drive into Florence and we had no difficulty parking. The wine tour and tasting at the castle was great. Turn left out of the gate and you can walk to the local taverna which served good food but limited menu. A hike up the hill gets you to Machiavelli restaurant and a bit further on there is a pizzeria with views to die for (drive to this one).

Pros La situation géographique à 20min de Florence.
La superbe piscine.
Les abords de la villa
Cons L'absence d’air-conditionné (malgré la présence de ventilateurs) à rendu les nuits pénibles. L'absence de moustiquaires aux fenêtres ont permis aux insectes de tout poils de nous dévorer. La vaisselle calculée au plus juste (pour 8 mais pas 9).
Local attractions - Restaurant en face de la propriété (attention...la carte est en Italien uniquement). - Proximité de Florence et de Sienne

Pros Superb location. Lovely outlook. Not too far from florence, Sienna, Cinque Terra, Pisa all of which we visited. Hosts helpful friendly and good english speakers. The pool is good.
Cons It was all fine. The only suggestion I would make is that in summer it would be good to have a heat pump cooling things down somewhere in the house
Local attractions We ate all our meals at the villa. We enjoyed all the town mentioned above. Lovely medieval towns and great architecture..

Pros L'accueil par le propriètaire. La villa située sur un site exceptionnel par sa beauté et son calme en haut d'une colline.
Cons Le plancher de notre chambre qui faisait un bruit épouvantable au moindre pas
Local attractions Le restaurant Machiavel situé à 3 km pour sa cuisine très raffinée et son cadre magnifique. Par contre je déconseille fortement la Barachina (trop cantine-service nul-tarifs salés)

Pros The house was lovely and the location was great. The owner was friendly and very helpful. We enjoyed the pool although the weather was not as warm as it might have been. The kitchen was well equiped and we loved the different areas where one could eat outside. The views from the house were fantastic and the house was not too far from the local supermarket.
Cons At times it was a little cold in the house which was really a function of the weather. But when asked the owner switched on the heating for us.
Local attractions The little restaurant down the road was really good value.
