Villa Il tasso, Pistoia

6 bedrooms 5 bathrooms Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

This wonderfully spacious three-storey property, near Pistoia, is perched on a hillside so  offers superb panoramic views. Villa Il Tasso is fine choice for a large extended family or a group of friends with young children. Twelve to 14 guests can be comfortably accommodated in its five doubles and quadruple bedroom, most of which benefit from glorious vistas and lots of natural light. The villa's exquisite exterior - painted in traditional Tuscan yellow, offset by green shutters and protected by a high stone wall - brings to mind a fortified palace, further reinforced by its commanding position overlooking the valley and mountains beyond. The grand style continues inside, with high ceilings upheld by sturdy exposed wooden beams, a breath-taking entrance hall and imposing stone staircase, all elevated by well-placed luxurious furniture, vases and figurines.

Meanwhile, the dramatic, split-level paved terrace at the front of the property is the perfect place for sociable drinks and al-fresco meals. Perhaps the nearby town of Valdibrana will entice you to visit, or you might just want to relax in your large private pool - like a little oasis, bordered by shrubs and lavender bushes - with a shady gazebo to the side. Both are ideal spots for soaking up those captivating views.

Our thoughts
This is a property of almost baronial proportions, which enjoys a private location, making it perfect for large groups. The lounge has a spacious feel, thanks to the archways that interlink and open up the spaces, while other graceful touches include antique cupboards and decorative fireplaces. We particularly love the lounge on the first floor, with its views across the soft haze of the countryside. While the huge grounds and large pool are in the ideal position to enjoy the warm Tuscan sunshine and stirring views so typical of the region. 

The second-floor kitchenette is only suitable for preparing snacks. The property is fenced and pet secure. There is no heating nor air-conditioning.

The large pool is accessed via an iron gate on the main terrace and down a grass pathway. Overlooking the countryside below, it's set in a paved terrace with a wall along one side and a fence along the other, with the rest laid to lawn. The water is accessed via internal Roman steps at one end and the terrace is furnished with sun beds and deck chairs, with a gazebo and an open-air shower to the side. Pool size: 15m x 6m, 0.30m-2m deep, open May to September, weather permitting.
