Villa Aiola is a strikingly beautiful, restored country house that is part of a 1700-acre estate located in the Val d'Orcia region in southern Tuscany. This extraordinary beautiful area of Italy sits between the land south of Siena and the borders of Umbria. Characteristic of Val D'Orcia are the villa's open, breathtaking views of Mount Amiata, with the unchanged landscape reminiscent of old master paintings. The nearby San Casciano dei Bagni, a beautiful, unspoiled medieval village, is just 10 minutes away by car and a rather well-kept secret south of Siena. This intimate, luxurious haven is ideal for private getaways and family reunions. Larger groups can also rent the nearby Villa Monticchia which is part of the same estate. Spacious living/game room accessible via separate garden entrance. Billiard table, gambling table and dining area with open kitchen corner. Spacious living room with fireplace. Elegant dining room.
