16th century roots overlooking the Val di Chiana

10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 4 baths
Find yourself at home in the rolling hills of Tuscany at Villa Lunablu. Parts of this luxury vacation rental near Montepulciano were first built in the 16th century, followed by updates in the 18th century, and the property still looks out over the timeless landscape from the Val de Chiana to Monte Cetona. Use the spacious private grounds and garden and five bedrooms as the setting for a quiet family reunion or an intimate destination wedding, or simply as a base to explore the region’s historic sites and world-famous vineyards.
Set at the end of a winding gravel road, the villa is surrounded by olive groves and gardens with mature cypress and pine trees. Its multiple levels open to three terraces that follow the gentle slope of the hillside location and feature al-fresco sitting and dining areas, as well as barbecues where you can prepare meals to enjoy outside. A path leads down to the pool area, where you’ll find an infinity pool, a deck with loungers, an outdoor shower and a bar, and a bocce court.
Though the traditional tiled roof, stone walls and shuttered windows of Villa Lunablu speak to the home’s history, the lovingly updated interiors ensure that guests with twenty-first-century expectations will stay in comfort. Cotto floors and brick-clad archways invite you to wander from the casual sitting room to the farmhouse-inspired table and chairs in the dining room. Two kitchens—one professional, one fully equipped and eat-in—make it easy to prepare and serve local specialties or family favorites.
Each of the villa’s five bedrooms has a double bed. Two have en-suite bathrooms, two share a bathroom, and one has access to a shared hall bathroom. Details like vaulted and beamed ceilings, exposed stone walls and antique fireplace surrounds ground the bedrooms’ decor in centuries of Italian style, while large windows opening to the countryside are a constant reminder of the beautiful surroundings.
Whether you’re on holiday with family, enjoying an escape with friends, or on honeymoon, there’s plenty to do near Villa Lunablu. Make the 15-minute drive to the town of Cetona for a look at prehistoric and Bronze Age archaeological finds from the area, the 15-minute drive to the newer village of Piazze, or the 35-minute drive to stroll the picturesque, car-free streets of the hill town of Montepulciano. Tennis courts and a golf course are also within easy reach, and as you pass through the countryside, be sure to stop off at local producers and sample the region’s famous wines, olive oils, cheeses and honey.
