Villa Ricci

10 guests · 4 bedrooms · 4.5 baths
Candelabras glow against plaster walls and sunlight spills over brick floors at this made-over farmhouse in the Tuscan countryside. It still has the tile-roofed, wood-beamed look of so many rustic buildings in the region, but the restoration added a steel-and-glass door here, a corset-detailed chair there. Taste local Chiantis at wineries in the surrounding hills and day-trip to Florence or Siena.
Take your coffee out to a seat on the terrace every morning, then practice your golf skills on the dewy lawn and, on the warmest summer days, cool off in the 14m by 7m saltwater swimming pool. As dusk turns the olive leaves from green to silver, open a bottle of local wine, prepare your dinner with the garden's fresh produce and olive oil, and settle in around the alfresco dining table to catch up with friends and family.
The villa’s living room, dining room, and fully equipped kitchen are lined up inside, connected by brick floors and wood-beamed ceilings, and each with its own set of French doors to the garden. The traditional look gets a hit of contemporary chic from details like wire-framed chairs and abstract artwork, and a separate TV lounge has a state-of-the-art projector screen.
The nearest town is Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, a hilltop village that once marked the halfway point for travelers between Florence and Siena. Drive through sunflower fields to visit—and taste—at nearby wineries, or rent a bike to tackle the hills yourself. The museums and architecture of Florence are about 30 minutes away and to visit Siena a 40 minute drive will do.
