C’mon! Spoil yourselves! A, “once in a lifetime”, pure LUXURY retreat, this sensational villa is situated in an exclusive and sought after corner of the globe.
Located in the famous province of Sienna, you are in the even more famous commune of San Casciano dei Bagni. Indeed, the 4C village of San Casciano dei Bagni, just 2 kms away, holds the official title of one of the “prettiest villages in Italy” (borghi piu belli d’Italia)! Many country trails lead to the village from the villa. And once there, you’ll find bars, restaurants, shops… a bustling little borgo with fantastic views all around!
The area of San Casciano dei Bagni is famed for its 42 hot water springs. Throughout the ages, Etruscan and Roman nobility, including Augustus, the famous Roman emperor, have gathered here to luxuriate in waters of 40+ degs C. And it’s free of charge!
All of this is just 2 kms from the villa!
In addition, at nearby Bagni San Filippo, there is a large rock, on which there are hot thermal pools that are perfect for bathing in.
You could not wish for more! You will love this area!
THE VILLA – sleeps 14, inc 2 young people. Perfect as a retreat or for events !
Staying in this sensational place, you abandon yourself not only to the spoils of wealth but also to the gifts of Nature.
Brand new to the public market, this LUXURY hideaway, originally a haven for celebrities, seeking privacy, sanctuary and solace, is now available to those of you who wish to experience how the “other half” indulge themselves!
This fairy tale Tuscan villa with pool, set in extensive grounds and parkland sleeps 12 adults + 2 children/young people.
Importantly, the owner wants to emphasize that if you are not into serenity and mediation, that if you prefer the boom boomy din of the disco, you can make AS MUCH NOISE AS YOU LIKE. You can hire a band and/or you can sing and dance in the grounds all night long.
This is a fantasy place, where you can release your inhibitions any way you like!
This idyllic hideaway is a perfect venue for wedding feasts, anniversary events, special reunion celebrations and birthday bashes. We, even, host end of school or college semesters and graduations for young people aged 18 +, many might say, a brave move on our part!!
