Luxurious casual sofas easily accommodate 12 guests in this stylish haven for relaxing, socialising or snuggling.

At the far end of the living room under the windows the more formal dining area seats up to 14 guests at a beautiful 3.3 metre long chestnut table.

The original Tuscan kitchen with open fireplace, cotto floors and copper pots are a feast for the eyes whilst you prepare one! Complete with a superb AGA oven, Miele appliances and wine fridge, this kitchen table for 8 may be your favourite place to dine.
Dining choices are endless with the huge sun-soaked terrace directly off the kitchen providing another magnificent setting. Enjoy long leisurely lunches under the shade of the bamboo canopy and warm summer nights overlooking the golden duomo façade on this tranquil outdoor terrace amidst flowering plants and kitchen herbs.
