Chianti, Tuscany»Tavarnella Villa

  • Bedrooms: 11
  • Bathrooms: 10
  • Sleeps: 22

Villa Tavernella, a hundred year old farmhouse overlooking the hills of Tuscany, which has been owned by the Fusi family for many years, is situated in an oasis of green amidst centuries-old olive trees, where the air is filled with the fragrance of cypress trees and wild herbs. This luxury villa has recently been elegantly renovated to reflect the taste and style of the owners who, whilst providing the building with every comfort, have chosen to preserve its original structure with open beam ceilings, brick arches and terracotta floors, in accordance with the architectural tradition of the Chianti district.

The farmhouse is set in open countryside just a few kilometers from the town of Tavarnelle Val di Pesa, and is an ideal place for a quiet and relaxing stay in Tuscany. Guests can also enjoy the splendid swimming pool with Jacuzzi and the delightful Wellbeing Center.

The ground floor consists of a large paved area, once the farmyard, leads into a big, characteristic terracotta room with stone walls, open beams and arches that offers a truly unique relaxing atmosphere thanks to the cheerful crackling of the fire in the typical Tuscan fireplace. This floor also contains three fully equipped kitchens where it is possible to prepare delicious Tuscan meals, a room with a fireplace and a large living room - also with a typical Tuscan fireplace - that can be used by all the Villa’s guests. There is also a large bedroom with double bed, private bathroom with shower and bathtub, air conditioning, telephone and Internet access, satellite TV and mosquito nets. From each of the kitchens and rooms it is possible to access the outdoor areas provided with all the necessary equipment for enjoying open-air lunches and suppers, as well as comfortable sunbeds and hammocks in the private garden.
On the first is where you will find 6 more guest bedrooms, all with en suite bathrooms, air conditioning, TV and phone. The master bedroom is located on the second floor. Situated above the roof, this was a type of tower that offered shelter to the farm’s doves and pigeons. The high position makes it possible to get a stunning view of the Tuscan countryside on three sides of the room itself. Due to the particular characteristics of this floor, the private bathroom for this bedroom can be found in a reserved, private area on the first floor of the Villa.

Finally, on the lower level is the “Calidarium” Wellbeing Centre and Spa is located. It has a heated Jacuzzi pool, sauna, automatic Shiatsu massage bed, gym, 2 showers and a changing room. The wellness center is available exclusively to our guests. Massages and beauty treatments are available on request.

The additional, independent cottage is adjacent to the main Villa. It was built out of the interior of what was originally the barn of the farm, and it takes up the entire first floor of the farmhouse. It consists of a kitchen equipped with oven, fridge, dishwasher and washing machine, living room with fireplace, one double bedroom, one twin-bedded room, bathroom with shower and bathtub. Telephone and Satellite TV are at guests disposal. What is unique to the cottage is the large loggia, the private garden and direct access to the swimming pool.
