Details

Villa Altaserra is as perfect for entertaining guests today as it was when the Medici family hosted visitors here hundreds of years ago.

On entering the ground floor of this stunning, generously proportioned villa, guests are greeted by an entrance hallway with a useful wardrobe. The spacious living rooms on this level include a piano room, a fireplace room, and a chill out room with TV. There is also a toilet and an attractive dining room.

The large fully equipped kitchen benefits from a pantry and fireplace, and leads out onto a lovely terrace with a gazebo, for truly marvelous outdoor dining in the lush Tuscan countryside. The kitchen has all the facilities necessary for home catering, including a dishwasher, microwave and coffee machine.

Up on the first floor are five tastefully appointed king size bedrooms, all of them with wood floors and en suite bathrooms. There is air conditioning throughout this floor for additional comfort. An additional Suite with two king size bedrooms sharing a bathroom is also available.

Outside in the gorgeous, quintessentially Italian garden there are mature trees and a pretty private chapel which is perfect for intimate ceremonies. A loggia faces a private swimming pool with its own showers and laundry facilities. The dining and relaxation terrace has beautiful views of the Chianti Hills.
