Vikida


Description

DESCRIPTION
Welcome to Villa Vikida, a lavish 7-bedroom villa located between Montepulciano and Cortona, surrounded by Tuscan countryside, near the historic town of Foiano Della Chiana.

Taking the best of the old masters of architecture and combining it with the modern designs of the present day, Villa Vikida is a marriage of styles, resulting in a property quite unlike any other. Terracotta tiles, a mainstay of Italian architecture, caps the contemporary two-storey villa that stands proudly on a 13-acre estate, enclosed by fencing that ensures the privacy of guests.

Purposefully placed lighting highlights the finest features of the exterior, painted a warm sandy colour. The stone-paved driveway in fan-shaped setts is reminiscent of old city streets, as it frames the landscaped flora at the front of the house. Walk down the paved path to find the state-of-the-art heated swimming pool at the rear, enjoyable both as a way to cool off in the Italian sun, or midnight swim in the heated waters. A pizza oven and barbeque grill are also at the ready to the rear of the villa; dinner al fresco under the Tuscan evening sky is sure to be an unforgettable experience.

The interior is derived from contemporary influences; the open plan living space allows a connected flow between the kitchen, living room and dining room, sitting beneath lofted ceilings held up with sturdy blond wooden beams. Modern furniture mixed in with antique rarities make for a unique combination of past and present décor; the colour palette makes use of soft hues, allowing for a calmer feel and energy to the lounge area, and guests can relax and engage in some downtime.

The large plush couch and chairs are perfect for stretching out and watching TV or taking a break from the day’s activities. There are several areas in which seating has been arranged for the comfort of the guests, with large couches framing coffee tables, perfect to gather around for entertaining, several tables and chairs to engage in board games and lively conversation, or a set of armchairs beside an array of books to curl up and read from. Natural light from the wide windows and terrace doors flows into the villa to ensure that it maintains an airy feel, and combined with only the necessities in regards to furnishings, opens up the generous space even more so that no part of it feels clustered or confined.

The bedrooms, following suit in design, take the minimalist approach to embellishment; wood flooring and clean white walls maximize the light, reduce distraction and clutter to instil a sense of calm in the room, allowing guests to wind down and relax in the evenings before going to sleep.
Each room has been fitted with a luxurious king-size bed with sumptuous linens, guaranteeing a restful night's sleep. All rooms are also outfitted with air conditioning to manage and maintain the room at optimum temperature, and en-suite bathrooms with marble flooring and large showers, ready to wash the day’s cares away. Several rooms have access to a jacuzzi bathtub, the bubbling waters sure to soothe any aches or strains. A wellness area with a Turkish bath and a Jacuzzi with chromotherapy lighting is also available; designed to use colours to restore health and harmonize the body’s energy, it also makes for a visually stunning feature, alongside promoting well-being.
