Villa Il Sole sits in the midst of superbly manicured gardens and is surrounded by ordered vineyards, cypresses and olive groves offering incredible views from every part of the estate. The property is also quintessentially Tuscan as it is a converted farmhouse dating back a hundred years. The interiors still feature its original beamed ceilings, terracotta floors and brick arches, which are complemented by rustic furnishings.
The villa's setting is peaceful and the grounds are secluded, but excellent local restaurants and cafés are only a few minutes away and the region's most famous villages are within a short drive. The property also produces its own wine and extra virgin olive oil and a team of professional chefs is available for cooking lessons and tastings at the villa.
The rooms are spacious, with large living and dining areas and two fully-equipped kitchens. Each of the property's bedrooms has air conditioning, as well as ceiling fans. Most of the bedrooms are located in the main villa, with two in a separate cottage just a few steps away in the garden.
On the ground floor there is a spa with heated Jacuzzi pool, sauna, automatic Shiatsu massage bed, gym and two showers. This wellness area is exclusively for guests use and treatments and massages can be arranged through the onsite concierge.
In the gardens there are several al fresco dining options including a shaded panoramic terrace and sun loungers that are strategically dotted around the property. The generous pool has an adjoining jacuzzi and enjoys the shelter of olive trees on either side.
