Description

Villa Serena was originally built as two adjoining rural dwellings in the second half of the 18th century and is the centre of a property of over 7ha of woods and olive groves. Positioned at approximately 250mt. above sea level it has a wonderful outlook over the hills and richly forested valleys of this area (chestnut, oak etc.)

In joining the two original dwellings the owners have created a villa full of character and very versatile in terms of meeting guest requirements. Able to be separated by closing some strategic doors, the villa as a single habitation has a wonderful balance of living space and nicely sized bedrooms. The owners, who live in a separate villa next door have a passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired throughout 30 years of collecting. The traditional cotto floors are decorated with persian carpets and some of the more particular pieces are the beautiful doors of the walk-in wardrobes in two of the bedrooms, the wooden 17th century plaque from a Florentine convent above the door of the larger lounge room and the Empire wardrobes and chests of drawers in two of the bedrooms

The external walls are constructed of local stone typical to the area and the villa opens onto a large garden of 3000sqm comprising lawn areas, shady trees, well maintained gardens and a wisteria covered pergola, perfect for alfresco dining or enjoying the gentle breezes on summer afternoons.

On a lower level a 6 x 12m (1.3m deep) infinity swimming pool fitted with an endless spa (swimming treadmill) and jacuzzi overlooks the valley and is surrounded by a well equipped sun terrace.

Just 10 minutes from the main hightways connecting Florence, Lucca and Pisa, the property is perfect for a well balanced holiday providing country style peace and tranquility around the villa, but within moments one can be amongst the hustle and bustle of the major art and culture centres of Tuscany.
