Villa Oliveto Duplex Apartment

This large villa, in a typically Tuscan hilltop village was built in Sienese brick over 100 years ago. The upper-two of its 3 floors have been transformed into an independent and luxurious apartment.

A marble external staircase leads up to the first floor and an entrance hall shared by the first and second floors. Light–coloured granite floor tiles throughout the apartment provide a cool, airy atmosphere.

[Because of the layout of the apartment & gardens, this property is not suitable for children]

The second floor has a unique atmosphere created by the massive chestnut roof beams, sloping eaves and electronically controlled roof skylights.

The internal marble staircase leads into the centre of the upper-floor, featuring an open plan dining area & modern kitchen with marble work surfaces & island/breakfast-bar.

All rooms on this floor have low-level windows looking over the gardens, countryside & village. The master bedroom has an en suite bathroom with bath and glazed shower cubicle.

Pool & Gardens

Set in the gardens of Villa Oliveto is an oval pool [6x5x1.5 meters]. A very large outdoor table & a barbecue are set in a corner of the garden – ideal for al fresco dining as the sun sets & you absorb the views of the medieval village, the abbey & the undulating Tuscan countryside. A grotto, complete with goldfish pond, is shaded by old olive trees & is just the place for those contemplative, peaceful moments.
