Villa Sornano 8, Sornano - Poggibonsi - Siena

4 bedrooms 3 bathrooms Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Amid vine-cloaked hills dotted with medieval villages, Villa Sornano is a tranquil hideaway. This 4 bedroom stone villa for up to 8 people has been lovingly restored into a bright and roomy holiday home. One of it’s real assets is a beautiful enclosed garden blooming with herbs and fruit, which guests are welcome to pick in season, and in which you’ll find a refreshing private pool. Watching the sun set over San Gimignano from the swing-chair or hammock will surely be one of your favourite memories.

Inside, care has been taken to maintain the villa’s original features, such as the wooden ceiling beams and terracotta tiled floors. Yet there’s also a stylish contemporary feel to this villa, with white walls and cream sofas. An exposed brick wall adds an attractive feature to the well-equipped kitchen, while bedrooms (of which four are en-suite) are decorated in chic, muted colour schemes.

Our Thoughts
Immerse yourself in nature from the moment you cross the threshold of Villa Sornano. The garden is a wonderful place to relax, with its own vegetable patch and numerous seating areas offering views of the surrounding hills. It’s hard to believe that peaceful haven is so close to Siena and Florence, both of which are under an hour’s drive, ideal places to get your fill of Tuscan culture.

4 bedrooms. 3 bathrooms, 2 en-suite (one of which is a Jack and Jill bathroom shared by two bedrooms). Guests are welcome to use herbs and fruits from the garden when in season. The owner provides a selection of books, games DVDs and CDs (mostly English) for guests use. There is parking on site for up to three cars.

The large irregular-shaped pool is set on a lower level to the villa, reached via a flight of stone steps. It has Roman steps leading into the water as well as metal ladder steps and a diving board. The pool is fenced along one side and surrounded by a paved terrace leading to lawn and bordered by a hedge, there are sunbeds, chairs and parasols, and a large brick pizza oven. There is a shallow sitting area in the pool with a depth of 80 cm. Pool size: 16m x 8m, 1.20-2m deep, open May to September, weather permitting.

Villa magnifique, super bien située, très spacieuse, lumineuse mais fraiche à l'intérieur en été (les moustiquaires sont vraiment bienvenus et utiles). Plusieurs terrasses très agréable, piscine parfaite pour adultes et jeunes enfants. La "salle de jeux" pour les enfants était vraiment bienvenue aussi!
Local attractions Je connaissais la région que j'adore, donc coup de coeur non, mais villes dans mon coeur: Radda in Chianti, Volterra, etc.
