Villa Ortensia typifies simplistic Tuscan elegance. Owned by an artist, painter and sculptress - as you'd expect, the Tuscan villa has been beautifully furnished - wooden and stone floors meet vibrantly painted walls - portraying the spirit of Tuscany. Whilst maintaining its rustic origins, there are numerous contemporary art pieces sprinkled throughout the villa, adding to its appeal. Pretty landscaped gardens surround the villa, with plenty of shaded spots and spaces to completely relax and immerse yourself in a good book. Fortuitously, this area is less touristy than other parts of Tuscany, and still offers as much as the more well-known areas. Lucca is a gem, very accessible and only 15 minutes away and Versilia, with its long sandy beaches is only 30 minutes away. The famous port of Viareggio and the renowned Forte dei Marmi are all located in Versilia. And Bolgheri - one of Italy's most prestigious vineyard areas, with its super Tuscan wines - is approximately 98kms away.


The property is set over three floors, with one bedroom on ground floor and four further bedrooms spread over the first and second floors. The ground floor is largely open plan with a farmhouse-style kitchen, dining room and sitting room and large wooden doors leading to the front gardens and outdoor dining areas, equipped with a beautiful wooden table with marble top seating 10 people - all covered with pergolas. The owner's studio/atelier, at the heart of the house, is a quiet space to sink into a comfortable sofa.

The gardens - extensive lush-green lawns and well-manicured borders of lavender, and herbs are beautifully maintained, with masses of al fresco dining options - perfect for a long and lazy lunch or firing up the pizza oven. Wander down the garden through the olive and cypress trees and you'll find the swimming pool, which is heated during the spring and early autumn months, surrounded by beautiful indigenous trees and shrubs. The villa is gated and has enough space to park a few cars.

The living space of the villa develops on ground floor, consisting of open spaces with comfortable sofas for the guests, a fully functional kitchen, an indoor dining area and a bathroom. There's direct access to garden and outdoor dining area with beautiful views, equipped with a beautiful wooden table with marble top seating 10 people. From the sofas area you access the ground floor bedroom.


Bedroom configuration:

The bedrooms are spacious and well-proportioned and all come with air-conditioning, their own bathrooms and wonderful views. The bedrooms are all elegantly decorated with carefully chosen fabrics and all configured as double rooms, but most can be converted into twin rooms on request. Windows are screened throughout the house so that they can be thrown open in the evenings to let the cool air flow through the house.

Objective Advice Our sole aim is to match the right client with the right property.

The above benefits are not offered lightly. Red Savannah clients receive all the advantages and protections listed above, without paying a penny more.  And remember, apart from the inability to match-make the right client to the right property, ‘Rental by Owner’ sites could expose the user to fraud. The City of London Police’s National Fraud Intelligence Bureau, report that in 2016, fraudsters stole £7.2 million from 5,826 unsuspecting travellers via online scams. Why risk it?

*Best Price Guarantee applies only at the time of enquiry and before the booking has been confirmed and paid. If you find a cheaper price for exactly the same property on a like for like basis and over identical dates, and where in the sole opinion of Red Savannah, no substantive pricing error has been made or private discount offered, Red Savannah will match the price. This guarantee is valid only when prices are advertised and compared in the same currency. Please note that no further amendments to prices can be made following payment of deposit.
