VILLA LUISA - FIANO
Villa Luisa is a wonderfully renovated farmhouse with an 11th Century tower as central structure. The villa is located just between Florence and Siena overlooking the Tuscan hills.
This beautiful, spacious farmhouse is set in a wonderful quiet position in the heart of the Chianti district, surrounded by vineyards, olive groves and cypress trees. The views encompass the Castle of Santa Maria Novella and stretch as far as the towers of San Gimignano across the rolling countryside.
The central structure of Villa Luisa is the tower; the wings were added later. This typical Tuscan house has been completely restored, taking care to respect its original form. The old structure has been consolidated and when possible, the original materials re-used. Our rental is now part of a farm of 69 acres, specialized in the production of extra virgin olive oil. Guests have the possibility to purchase the products of the farm.
Elegantly furnished the villa has a large garden with pool and provides every possible modern convenience. It sleeps ten adults in five air-conditioned bedrooms. Village at walking distance.
The house is on three floors and is furnished with original antiques. It is spacious (3,250sqf) with five air-conditioned bedrooms each with a large closet; four bathrooms + one WC; a large sitting room with fireplace, two small halls and a big eat-in kitchen with a wood burning oven. There are two loggias, garden with lawn furniture, BBQ and a swimming pool (11m x 5m, 1.2m-1.6m deep).
Ground floor: one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower (there are three steps to access the bedroom), dining room, kitchen, loggia, toilet.
First floor: one double bedroom with wardrobe and en-suite bathroom (bathtub and separate shower), one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower, one twin bedroom, large living room with fireplace and access to the loggia.

PLEASE NOTE: Adjacent to the villa there's the farmhouse (annex) where the owner lives. He is available to help guests with any problem. The outdoor facilities of the house, garden, pergola and pool area are completely private for the guests of the villa.
PLEASE NOTE: Although totally restored Villa Luisa maintains its ancient structure. Although on the ground floor, the kitchen, the TV room and the bedroom are not on the same level. Although guests can access this bedroom and the kitchen from the exterior (avoiding the internal steps), the rest of the floor has short flights of stairs throughout. The access to the last floor bedroom is 20cm lower than usual so watch your head going up to this bedroom!
The beds in the twin bedroom cannot be joined: they sit against opposite walls with a doorway in between.
