The location of this villa is superb - almost equidistant on the road between Florence and Siena within a short stroll of the village of Barberino Val d'Elsa. There are few villas on the rental market with a better location.
Barberino Val d'Elsa is a beautiful medieval village surrounded by the green Tuscan countryside between Florence and Siena. Situated along the ancient Cassia road which connects Florence to Rome, it offers a stunning panorama of the Chianti region, close to many of Chianti's great highlights and within around 30 minutes from Florence and Siena.
Podere Barberino is wonderfully located on the slopes of the village of Barberino Val d'Elsa, a medieval village that stretches along the ancient, picturesque country road that links Florence and Siena. The villa itself is walking distance into the village and has the most spectacular views over classic Chianti countryside from the house, its mature gardens and the infinity pool.
The property is divided into two floors with a central tower. Many large doors and windows are designed to let in the fabulous light. From the outside it has the look of a classic Tuscan country home, inside rooms are spacious and airy with very comfortable and up to date furnishings. Brick vaulted ceilings on the ground floor and wooden beams throughout the first floor give the place character and remind you of where you are.
Kitchen comes with two stoves with 8 burners, 2 electric ovens, 1 gas oven, microwave, large Whirlpool refrigerator, coffee machine, dishwasher, water dispenser for cold or warm water for tea. Upon request, the cook is always available to prepare dinners that can be enjoyed sitting comfortably on the covered terrace (table seats 12 to 18 people) with a spectacular garden with valley view.
