Castellare de Sernigi, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa - Florence

7 bedrooms 8 bathrooms 11 to 13 people Private Pool 0 - no reviews - no reviews 0

Less is more in this prestigious villa south of Florence, dating from the 1400s, where cool white tones and a carefully selected and positioned mix of contemporary and antique furnishings allow the old house’s original features to sing. The design-conscious will love the way the graceful arches lead from one room to the next, and how the blank canvas is coloured-in using the natural tones in the wooden beams and furnishings, stone fireplaces, polished terracotta tiled floors, striking blossoms and deep green leaves of the many potted plants. Then, there’s that veritable gallery of modern art, too.

Yet the deft artistic hand that created this lovely vision has also prioritised the comfort of guests, with huge squashy sofas and armchairs and cosy beds, a large professional-standard kitchen and two places that will make a grand occasion of a meal, the dining room and the large pergola. Though this is one of three buildings set in these extensive grounds, you are at liberty to gambol in the vast gardens and enjoy a large private pool beyond the olive grove, with a separate hot tub to wallow in.

Our Thoughts
This gorgeous historic villa has been beautifully updated for modern times. We love the way nature rules the colour palette, through the property’s assets and the plentiful use of plants. The huge modern art that adorns the walls throughout is a truly special touch – it seems very appropriate that many of our guests staying here are likely to have been drawn to the property because of its proximity to Florence because it is the perfect base for lovers of art and history.

Seven Bedrooms. Eight bathrooms, seven en-suite. The owners offer a complimentary welcome dinner, please state your expected arrival time on booking. You are welcome to help yourselves to the wine and olive oil in the cellar, which is produced on the estate, and pay for what you use. There is an open-air theatre in the woods near the villa where the owners organise plays, concerts and mini operas for guests during summer. The villa is licensed for weddings. There are tennis courts nearby, which are free for guests to use. The owners have a dog that roams free in the gardens. Do not allow your dog in the pool or on the furniture.

The large rectangular pool is in the large gardens, on the other side of an olive grove. There are changing rooms, with a small fridge for drinks, and a hot tub with five seats. The pool’s paved surround is furnished with sun loungers and chairs and there is a pergola covered with planting, beneath which is a table and chairs. The water is accessed at either end, via two sets of metal ladder steps. Pool Size: 15m x 7m, 1.2m-1.4m deep. Open from mid-May to mid-September weather permitting.

To help you through the first day or two of your holiday, owners can do a small shop before your arrival so that you do not have to go immediately to find a supermarket.
