Bice


Description

Welcome to Bice, a luxury 5-bedroom villa with a contemporary touch, situated in the picturesque Tuscan landscape of Italy.

A beautiful exterior with an expansive and generously sized garden complete with terraced areas, Bice is a villa of distinction; set on rolling green hills with marvellous landscape views in all directions, the beauty surrounding the villa cannot be understated. Several areas to wine and dine are set aside for guests use at any time, surrounded by lush and well-manicured gardens that give way to the stunning landscape. A private swimming pool has been furnished with sun loungers on the deck that frames it - the perfect place to occupy on a hot day.

Cotto tiles, wooden floors, and exposed stonework are to be found throughout the interior, and combined with elegant fixtures and stylish furnishings, Bice blends traditional Italian features with modern luxury. The open plan interior lends itself well to the beautiful architecture that Bice is comprised of; vaulted brick ceilings and archways span the length of the open plan great room, containing lounge, dining area and kitchen; Cotto tiled floors complete the Italian aesthetic, and lend the space a bright and airy feel, that is both sophisticated in its display, and welcoming in equal measure.

The lounge, comprising of numerous plush chairs and couches, surrounds a low coffee table that makes for an ideal place for entertaining guests; the fireplace that dominates the rear wall makes for a cosy spot to relax and enjoy the warmth of the crackling flames in the cooler parts of the year. A separate lounge with another fireplace makes for a more secluded place to relax and enjoy a moment of peace, or dive into a book.

The fully equipped kitchen is ready to serve your culinary needs and can handle almost any challenge thrown at it; state of the art appliances and beautifully carved countertops are laid out efficiently, making it an effortless task to whip up richly flavoured meals; the services of a professional chef can be arranged to deliver a taste sensation, all within the comfort of your own villa.

The dining area resides between the kitchen and lounge, a long wooden-top table with ample seating sits under an elegant light fixture; candles atop the table contribute to creating a soft and intimate setting for an unforgettable meal. Alternatively, take your plate to the dining table under the shaded veranda to enjoy your dinner with the fading light of the day, and experience an authentic al fresco experience, with the Tuscan countryside as your backdrop.

All bedrooms have been furnished with luxurious queen-sized beds, and with high quality linens dressing the beds, falling into a restful slumber is effortless. All rooms also enjoy an en-suite bathroom.

Area description

An hour west of Florence, a tourist hotspot and Mecca for Renaissance and art aficionados for good reason, Villa Bice resides in the thriving green heart of Italy, Tuscany. Lovers of art and history will already be aware that Tuscany is steeped in history - Florence, the seat of the famous Medici family, lies to the east of the villa, and is the reputed heart of the Renaissance. The most populated city in Tuscany, Florence has a long history stretching back to Roman times, with architectural and artistic wonders on display in its many basilicas, churches, museums and castles.
Further afield, the city of Pisa lies west of the villa and is right on the coastline; filled with shops, restaurants, bars and clubs, there are many cultural and historical sights to explore and admire, alongside the titular leaning tower of Pisa that is so popular among visitors. Wine connoisseurs and enthusiasts will be pleased to learn that the villa is about an hour away from the famous wine-producing region of Italy, the Chianti region. Several wineries are to be found throughout the region, near and far; Gaiole, a medieval village that served as an important trading post in eras gone by, is one such area that is affluent in wine producers. Locally produced wines with a vast variety of flavours and tastes are waiting to be sampled that will invigorate the palate.
