A wonderful example of how best to renovate an old Tuscan farmhouse. And when we say old, we mean that the original building dates back to the 13th century. The current owners have honoured this incredible heritage while layering it with luxurious touches.
In some instances, it can be as simple as the flower-filled trellising running up its ancient walls. Or the well-placed rattan furniture in its covered outdoor spaces. More obviously, you’ll find it at the pool, surrounded by lawns and valley views.
What’s certain is that every element of this four-bedroom property smacks of classic countryside charm. The kitchen, in particular, has a rustic feel that evokes mama’s cooking and long Sunday lunches with friends or family.
Villa Olivo is in the Chianti area and, more specifically, the golden Orcia Valley. From there, you’re just 20 minutes away from the historic hilltop city of Siena, home to the region’s best Tuscan-style restaurants.
