Villa Aiala dates back to the XVIII century, located in the picturesque Crete Senesi, just half an hour from Siena.
Originally two large farmhouses, the renovation has been particularly well done with all modern amenities and rustic furnishings giving the villa real character and charm. The property sleeps 30 guests comfortably across 5 apartments, all with their own bathroom and kitchen, giving everyone their own space and privacy. The main farmhouse has plenty of common areas for everyone to come together and share meals or enjoy a game of pool.
The property features extraordinary 360° views of rolling green hills and dramatic mountain ranges and the barbecue area is the perfect spot to take it all in with plenty of space for lounging and socialising.
Around 150 meters from the house, through a grove of cypress trees, guests will arrive at a large swimming pool with hydro-massage and a sensational thermal water pool.
There are plenty of ways to keep the kids entertained with a playground, bowling green, ping pong table, snooker room, mountain bikes, volleyball net and football field all available on the property.
This beautiful region of Tuscany has something for everyone with thermal springs, extraordinary scenery, oodles of history and culture and beautiful beaches a couple of hours away. Oh, and did we mention the WINE?? Tuscany is the top Italian destination for wine buffs with an incredible number of high quality vineyards. Those seeking an active holiday will find incredible hiking and cycling paths to explore.
