Valecchio is a wonderful traditional Tuscan villa split between a semi-detached apartment and an independent cottage. Valecchio boasts magnificent views of the forest covered hills and valley below and is the ideal holiday home for a family or friends. The popular town of Rufina is only 7km away.
The wonderful, well maintained swimming pool is approximately fifty metres away across the lovely mature garden. The pool terrace is furnished with sun loungers and parasols and offers breathtaking panoramic views.
There are two furnished terraces available for guests to dine alfresco. The first is covered by a gazebo and is situated close to the cottage. The second is directly outside the attached apartment. Both have been furnished with tables and chairs for dining alfresco and afford fantastic views.
Entry to the pretty stone-built cottage is directly into a wonderful open-plan lounge, kitchen and diner on the first floor. The kitchen area is very spacious and is equipped with an oven, gas hobs,  and an under counter fridge with small icebox. Across from the kitchen is a lovely dining table with seating for six people.
At the rear of the room is the lounge area. This has been furnished with two armchairs that face a small flat screen television. The windows in the room offer some of the most glorious views of the valley and nearby hills. A flight of stairs near the entrance lead down to the ground floor and bedrooms.

Family with older children
MARLBOROUGH, United Kingdom

Stay: June 2016
We had a wonderfully relaxing week at an incredible location. Truly stunning gardens, excellent pool, amazing views and the whole property is spacious and very well maintained. The owners - Franco, Maria and son Mattia (and Lola their dog) - were delightful and very helpful. Happy to recommend and we hope to return.
