The lovely Borgo Gerlino was previously a farmhouse and two barns, restored into a luxurious villa with two annexes - one being a separate accommodation, the other a 'wellness centre' with sauna and jacuzzi. The house has 10 bedrooms and 10 baths, yet it has retained much of its original charm while offering modern fittings, including underfloor heating or cooling systems depending on the time of year. All rooms are comfortably appointed with modern terracotta tiled floors, beamed ceilings, satellite television and with ensuite shower rooms.
The property is located on a hilltop in a gated, private estate surrounded by vineyards and woodland with extensive countryside views. There is a small lake besides the entrance to the estate which guests may fish in, rods and equipment may be purchased from a nearby hypermarket twenty five minutes away. There are also several outlet stores including Prada, Gucci and Armani within forty minutes drive.
The property is well located for pleasant day trips to many of Tuscany's most picturesque towns; Siena in approximately thirty minutes, Montepulciano, Cortona or Montalcino and charming villages like Greve-in-Chianti within an hour.
