This property was purchased in the last decade of the 20th Century and underwent a total renovation. Owned by a renowned interior designer, the villa is a beautiful stone-brick building and the vast majority of the furniture and amenities are conceptualized, designed, and manufactured by the owners themselves. In fact, most of the home decor and furnishings – from the handmade soaps and olive oils, to the embroidered towels and bathrobes, to the dining table – can be purchased from an interior design catalogue. The property hosts up to 19 guests between the main villa and the charming annex, an ancient barn, fully renovated and splendidly furnished and decorated. Surrounded by the typical Val D’Orcia clay hillocks, you can enjoy stunning 360° views over the valley and its hill towns. The main villa comprises 6 bedrooms, all with spacious en-suite bathrooms and built-in air conditioning. The common areas are spacious, furnished and decorated in a unique style.
