Villa Duccio, Casole d'Elsa - Siena

5 bedrooms 5 bathrooms 10 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Set into a hillside looking east across beautiful woodland, Villa Duccio is at once wonderfully private and peaceful, yet also within an easy drive of Volterra, San Gimignano and Siena. Originally a home for sharecroppers, dating from the 17th century, this substantial property has been delightfully restored. The whitewashed interior, with its double-height lounge, strikes a beautifully judged balance between the twin joys of tradition and modernity. Contemporary inputs complement original materials, such as terracotta and stone, and some lovely antiques - you will surely adore the designer kitchen with its central island and American-style fridge.

Five generous bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms, make this a very easy place to share, whether your party is comprised of family or friends. The freshwater private pool (one of several ecologically conscious elements), with its wide, furnished terrace, is likely to be a favourite space and the large, shaded, travertine table just outside the kitchen is a great place for al-fresco eating. With so much on offer, it's difficult to say what you will remember most, but it might just be the stunning night skies after dinner here.

Our Thoughts
This is a special place for larger parties - it's clear that a great deal of thought has gone into its design and upkeep. The result is a well-equipped property that is constantly pleasing to the eye, with good-quality fittings, bags of character and space. As lovely a setting as Villa Duccio is for shared times with friends or family, you will also find plenty of places to settle quietly with a good book, coffee or glass of Chianti. Three of the bedrooms can be made up as either twins or doubles, which makes the accommodation particularly flexible.

Notes
Five bedrooms. Five bathrooms, all en-suite, plus cloakroom. The gardens are unfenced, and the pool is fenced. The owners live next door in a converted barn. They are there to help, but are respectful of guests' privacy. Please be aware there are steps throughout the property.

Pool
The pool is located in the garden, surrounded with tiles and furnished with loungers and parasols. The water can be accessed by internal Roman steps. Pool size: 5m x 14.5m, 1.2m-1.5m deep, open May 15-September 15, weather permitting.

We stayed for two weeks at this beautiful place and we would definitely come again. Vieri is the most friendly and supportive host you can imagine. Not only the kids enjoyed the pool. The well equipped kitchen allowed us to cook for large groups. We were 10 people and used all bedrooms - the fact that everyone has its own bathroom is just perfect, everything is very private and comfortable.
Local attractions Vieri has a listing of great restaurants in his "house bible". We tried many of them and they were exceptionally good. Mostly we recommend Ristorante Cassata in Via XVII Marzo, 22, 53035 Strove, Monteriggioni. Try the black rice!
