This independent villa, built in the second half of the 18th century, is located on the last western slopes of Mount Albano, approximately 250mt. above sea level. Originally it was composed of two farm houses which have been joined together (maintaining however a total independence if required during the Winter season).

The villa looks out over typical Tuscan countryside – hills and olive groves, woods of chestnut and oak trees – all immersed in an oasis of silence.
For almost 50 years the owners have cultivated their passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired from antique dealers, auction sales or antique fairs. Some of the more particular pieces are the beautiful doors in each room. Particularly the two doors in the central lounge and the one of the green bedroom on ground floor. All. 17th century.
The kitchen has a double marble sink, 250 years old and a collection of 12 ceramic tiles with zodiac symbols of the beginning of last century, over the stove.
