Villa Girasole


Description


Welcome to the Villa Girasole, a large country estate with idyllic views across the Tuscan hills.

The beauty of the Italian countryside is celebrated in this historic farmhouse that has been lovingly brought into the 21st Century. This attractive and spacious property has a large private pool (that can be heated) and eleven bedrooms. Villa Girasole is air-conditioned and has a very private location, yet it is within easy distance of some of Italy's most admired towns and cities.

The Tuscan countryside is celebrated for its rolling hills, draped in vineyards and olive groves. Lesser focus is given to the gorgeous coastline. As a guest of Villa Girasole, you are a mere 12m from some of the prettiest coastal communities, where dips into the sea, followed by a lunch of fresh seafood, are blissful.

The property has been sympathetically restored, preserving the beautiful soft stone arches, natural finishes, and elements that create the unique atmosphere of this lovely home. Up to 22 guests can stay in the Villa, enjoying many indoor and outdoor spaces for relaxation, rejuvenation, and adventure. The private location of the Villa ensures you and your group can be as tranquil or playful as you wish as you swim, have games, dine late into the star-filled night, or sit in solitude in the gardens.

Villa Girasole has been cleverly developed as two independent dwellings. One of the self-contained apartments can comfortably accommodate eight guests. At the same time, the other apartment can provide lovely accommodation for up to 14 guests.

Each self-contained space has living rooms, fireplaces, a kitchen, and dining spaces. This property layout works very well if you are two families vacationing together. You can establish your family base in either dwelling, coming together during the day for play and adventure and dining as one large group under the shaded outdoor dining terrace.

A multi-generational group will also love letting the younger guests congregate to chat, watch TV, play music, and hang out in one living room while at the same time; older individuals can decompress in quieter and more relaxed spaces.

The slightly smaller residence accommodates eight guests and has two double bedrooms with bathrooms on the ground floor. There is a large open-plan kitchen and dining space with a fireplace. Two further double rooms with canopy beds and ensuites are on the first floor. There are divine country views from all the windows.

The slightly bigger residence accommodates 14 guests and has two double bedrooms with ensuites on the ground floor. There is a large living room and open plan kitchen with a dining area. Four double bedrooms with canopy beds and ensuites are on the first floor. Again, these beautiful rooms enjoy fabulous views.

The quaint tower at the top of the building is accessed from this space. There are twin beds and an ensuite bathroom. The small windows facing the compass's four corners allow for natural light. It's of the favorite rooms for younger guests.

All the common living spaces in both properties open onto the gardens. Although the Villa has two distinct residences, they are united under one roof. There's an easy flow of movement between both apartments, and friends traveling together are never far from one another.

The Villa's private pool has been cleverly designed to give maximum privacy to sunbathers and swimmers. The pool terrace is flanked by a perimeter of low hedging and natural stone walls with a useful small gate. A welcome safety feature to prevent exploring tots from going too far.

The large lawns and gardens have space for active kids to play and explore. Gentle walks through the countryside nearby are a lot of pleasure too. Villa Girasole is that wonderful combination of space and traditional Italian living wrapped in modernity, symbolizing a most memorable vacation.

Villa Girasole combines the luxury of indoor living with the natural grandeur of the outdoors. From every window, there are dawn or dusk views that invite guests to step onto a terrace and drink in the stillness of the day.

The Villa is situated in a corner of Tuscany, famous for wine, food, history, and modern culture. When you are ready to leave the calm sanctuary of Villa Girasole, you can drive to this historic town of Florence and lose yourself in a city that combines designer shopping with the jewels of the Renaissance. This modern, vibrant city brings old and new together effortlessly.

A closer option for a day of touring must be Volterra or the City of Towers, San Gimignano. Quite simply unforgettable.

Be sure to pick up some of the delicious locally produced bread, fruit, and vegetables – and let’s not forget the wine – to enjoy back at your hillside sanctuary.

Italy is the land of the gods. You will feel that ancient link with all that's gone before and all that's to come. In essence, as you sit sipping a good Chianti, listening to the crickets, you will understand that your moment on the terrace of Girasole allows you to be a custodian, for a moment, of a world that will continue to flourish long after you've returned home.

LOCATION
Welcome to beautiful Italy. Villa Girasole is the ideal vacation home for guests who long to explore Tuscany and its many delightful facets.

Much has been written about the vineyards of Italy, where great wines can be tasted. The wine is only one small piece of a compelling story. Some of the greatest and most famous works of art reside in Florence. The Uffizi Museum, the church of Sante Croce, and the Ponte Vecchio draw many travelers to this picturesque city. In the height of summer, it can be busy and hot. It’s ideal to have a country base, like Villa Girasole, where you can retreat after a day of cultural expansion, slip into a pool, and dine as a group on the terrace as you discuss all your saw.

Nearby smaller towns like Volterra and San Gimignano offer something much more manageable. A day of walking along ancient, cobbled streets, stopping for the best bowl of pasta ever, and drifting with gelato in hand are unforgettable experiences.
Let Italy reveal herself to you in her mysterious way. Let Villa Girasole be the tranquil home base for you, your family, and your friends to revel in this unforgettable corner of paradise. Welcome to serenity and bliss.
