Luxury Tuscan villa with pool – Set in a very scenic and secluded spot of the Casentino area, this traditional stone farmhouse has been sympathetically restored to the highest standard in order to give guests a genuine feel of Tuscan country living, and offering all the comforts of a modern holiday home. Each room features antique European furniture, such as an English Aga stove, French rococo mirror and 19th century Italian wardrobe, as well as local handcrafted pieces, wrought-iron bedframes and chestnut beams, to create an exclusive and sophisticated space.
From this stunning location Villa Isabella affords panoramic views across the valley, stretching over wooded hills and acres of farmland. The huge landscaped garden itself is quite amazing, encompassing a formal Italian garden with knot garden, statues and fountain, an English rose garden, cypresses, olive trees and plenty of lawns for children to play. Take a stroll around and discover all the hidden corners of Villa Isabella, soak up all the surrounding beauty as you float in your infinity pool or relax in the Jacuzzi hot tub.
A number of pretty villages surround this holiday villa where little family-run shops and restaurants can still be found and the buzz of rural Tuscan life can be enjoyed at its best. Talla is only five minutes away (there are tennis courts here) and Villa Isabella is at the centre of the enchanting triangle of Florence, Siena and Arezzo. All sorts of local wine and food fairs, music festivals and cultural events contribute to make this part of Tuscany a very appealing destination for your family holiday.
