Villa Borghese - Siena area
Villa Borghese lies near San Giminiano, on the famous Francigena road. The nearest village you can find is Montaione, located on the top of a hill in the heart of the Tuscany countryside, at 373 mt on the sea level, surrounded by the typical landscape of Elsa Valley, characterised by Chianti vineyards, olive trees, rows of cypresses. The surrounding countryside is rich in Chianti vineyards that thanks to the right climate produce an excellent wine, and also olive groves to produce an extra virgin olive oil by punctilious farmers.
Villa Borghese is an independent residence with 17 sleeps and it offers two entrances: the main one and a secondary one. The main entrance leads to the living room which leads to the main rooms, the billiard room, the library and the only room that is located on the ground floor: a double room with bathroom (suitable for disabled). The secondary one, located on the left side of the main entrance, leads to the kitchen, the pantry, the huge dining room and the hunting room with a big fireplace. On the ground floor there is a small bathroom with no shower.
The property develops over two floors.
The ground floor offers a leisure room equipped with billiard table, four living rooms large enough to accommodate 17 people, 1 dining area and a kitchen area along with a double room with en-suite bathroom facilities.
A great stone staircase leads to the first floor where there are eight rooms. All bedrooms are organised one after the other through the long hallway, leading on the left to the master bedroom that offers a four poster bed (king size), a small living room with a terrace and a bathroom with travertine shower. On the same side, there are three more double rooms with en suite bathroom facilities and shower, a twin room with private shower bathroom, and a single room with a wonderful bathroom and shower in Carrara marble. On the opposite side of the hallway, there are the last two double rooms, both with en suite bathrooms. All rooms and bathrooms have a magnificent view of the garden and the surrounding countryside.
The outside area in front of the villa offers a large garden with a beautiful view of the Tuscan countryside. A stone staircase leads to the swimming pool (9x14 m- depth 1.20-2.50), surrounded by a large lawn, where you can eat and relax. Here you can dine al fresco on the covered terrace. On the back of the lawn, there is an external bathroom and three changing rooms, one with a large shower. Villa Borghese can also be the ideal place for small wedding receptions. The garden, the pool area and the lawn can accommodate up to 100 people seated. In case of bad weather you can use the lodge for cocktails, lounges for dinner or add a marquee to cover part of the garden.
