San Demetrio, San Gusme - Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 8 people Private Pool 4,5 - Excellent - Excellent 4,5

Seeking a villa oozing with Tuscan character but don't want to forsake mod-cons?  The secluded idyll of San Demetrio strikes the balance you're looking for. A great choice for a family with grandparents in tow, or two families. Plus, this restored villa really looks the part: a large, handsome stone-built property set in extensive grounds with a hinterland of olive groves and vineyards. You'll discover that the homely, though smart exterior belies a high-end internal finish. The refurbishment has retained the original features, such as terracotta tiles on both floor and – more dramatically – the high ceiling. All four bedrooms have the same exquisite touches of finesses and charm that characterise the rest of the property.

You'll find that both the stone courtyard and covered terrace are just the spot for al fresco dining (the stone walls take the edge off the heat of the day). The private pool enjoys a dramatic setting, too, while children and adults can bond in the shade of the stone outbuilding that houses a table-tennis table and a darts board. Wherever you settle – in the grounds or on the terrace – you will be assured of sublime views of the Chianti hills.

Our Thoughts
Renovated with a skilful balance of old and new, San Demetrio will delight you with its designer sofas and chairs, geometric windows, low-lighting and modern art canvasses, combined with traditional touches such as the tiled floors. The villa's layout, comprising a kitchen on each floor, helps to create the impression of two villas in one: from a practical point of view this could appeal to two families holidaying together but who also wish enjoy their own space from time to time.

Four bedrooms. Three bathrooms, one en-suite. Bedrooms 2 and 3 on the first floor share access to a Jack and Jill en-suite bathroom. The property is fenced. The final 400m of the approach road to San Demetrio is unpaved but in good condition.

The pool, located at the bottom of the sloped lawn, reached via the lawn or a flight of stone steps, is a good size for swimming but is too deep for non-swimming children. It is entered by steps and handrail. A short distance away, overlooking the lawn is a covered terrace with table and chairs. Pool size: 14m x 6m, 0.9m-2.2m deep. Open May through September, weather permitting.

The nearest town is San Gusmè, which is about 2.5km away. It's a small, quaint stone village which has a couple of restaurants and a small grocery shop. Definitely worth a visit, however for more shopping choice it is better to go to Castelnuovo Berardenga which is 6km away. This is a large town with all amenities, from a supermarket, pharmacy, bank, petrol station and a choice of cafés and restaurants.

It is in a beautiful location, it is extremely well presented with an excellent pool. The villa is equipped with everything that you would want including a vast range of books, games and videos. They werent actually used as the weather and the pool were even more inviting. My grandhildren thoroughly enjoyed their stay and were reluctant to leave.
I would recommend this villa absolutely.
Perhaps a warning about the access road which is an experience by itself
Local attractions Castello di Brolio is well worth a visit. The Val d'Orcia, Montepulciano, Pienza and Siena are all spectacular, as is Cortona (even when it rains).
