Podere Osteria 8, Pienza - Siena

4 bedrooms 4 bathrooms Private Pool 3,5 - Good - Good 3,5

Podere Osteria is a wonderful first floor Tuscan villa in the heart of the Val d'Orcia. It has excellent access to Montalcino, Montepulciano and Pienza. The ground floor of the villa is not used, this is a private semi-detached villa with private garden and pool.

The pool is located in the flat garden next to the villa, in a lovely sunny position, protected from view from the neighbours by local vegetation. From the pool there is a pretty view of the rolling Tuscan hills, covered in fields and dotted with cypress trees, typical of the Val d'Orcia.

While to the front there is a beautiful shady garden with a plant covered pergola. It is furnished with a lovely iron table with travertine top and six iron chairs. Nearby is a second table with chairs and a couple of deck chairs. To one side is a large barbeque and a small playground with swings.

Travertine steps lead up to the first floor where the villa is located. On entering there is a beautiful, spacious and bright open plan room with a light wooden floor. In the centre of the room is a terracotta arch which divides the dining area from the kitchen area. The dining area is furnished with a wooden table with six chairs, it can seat up to eight comfortably.

The kitchen is modern but keeping a traditional Tuscan villa style with curtains instead of cupboard doors. It has plenty of workspace on the travertine table tops. There are gas hobs, an oven and a large fridge with separate freezer.

Off the dining room is a sdoorway leading into the comfortable lounge which has a stone fireplace in one corner, ideal for the cooler evenings in Spring and Autumn. The room is tastefully furnished with leather sofas and a wall mounted television.

A short corridor leads to the sleeping area where there are three bedrooms. The first is a pretty room decorated in a pastel green with a white wooden, double four poster bed, a single door wardrobe and writing desk with chair. The window looks out towards the back of the villa and pool area. En-suite there is a bright pink bathroom with shower.

Next to this room is a second double bedroom, decorated in pale olive and beige. It has an iron head board with two beautiful chandeliers above the bedside tables. Hidden behind the bed is a large wardrobe. En-suite is a bathroom with shower.

The final bedroom is across the hall and has a pretty Autumn theme with Autumn colours. It is furnished with a white, double iron bed, wooden wardrobe and a writing desk with chair.

Mooi huis en zeer vriebdelijk ontvangen. Een beetje meer keukenmateriaal mag er wel aanwezig zijn en de electriciteit die regelmatig uitviel.

OWNER COMMENT: Thank you for your review. We were sorry to hear that the electricity kept cutting out. There is a 6KW supply. If all the appliances are used together, including hairdryers and TV then it can overload the system. We will check the kitchen equipment and replenish items if necessary.
