Villa a Mari

This villa is a prime reason for wanting to rent a house in Tuscany. Near Siena, it is strikingly beautiful with a commanding position near most of the major Tuscan attractions yet peacefully snuggled in a very private corner of the Tuscan countryside. Elegance, sophistication, comfort, 5-star amenities and some of the best views in Tuscany. This award winning stylish villa will leave you breathless.

Villa a Mari is the epitome of Italian style and comfort. Perched on a hill top above immaculate vineyards enjoying sweeping views of the countryside and of the nearby city of Siena. This is a very sophisticated home made up of three beautiful stone buildings creating a very unique design, all maintained to a very high level in one of the most sought after destinations in Tuscany.

Ancient Cypress trees greet you as if a attention as you come up the winding drive. Gates lead into the beautiful courtyard with lawns surrounded on three sides by the old stone farmhouse overlooking one of the estates vineyards, with the silhouette of Siena against the skyline. Leave the courtyard by another set of gates and you find yourself in another garden with a large loggia with a dining area and a seating area ideal for the long warm summer days. Stone steps lead you down to the private infinity-edge swimming pool furnished with umbrellas and loungers, strategically placed to enjoy the best of the views of the surrounding countryside.

The interior is just as stunning and extremely comfortable with large rooms, high ceilings and an interesting collection of contemporary paintings. When restoring the five hundred year old structures, the owners maintained the vaulted ceilings, the old beams as the terracotta floors but also added a modern touch so there is a wonderful collage of textures and colours creating a luxurious home but with a touch of subtle understatement. The perfectly designed kitchen is where breakfast is prepared and included in the rental and the resident cook who lives in gate house can arrange for you fantastic meals and served in a wonderful candle lit setting, under the loggia sipping your favorite Chianti wine.

  • Casale Vista Lucca

    Casale Vista Lucca is a spectacular residence perched high on the green hills just outside of Lucca. Its particularly elongated form and hillside position bring to mind an ancient strategy of dominion and protection, as if the villa had been built to effectively monitor the movements of any unannounced visitor.

    The villa is located just a few kilometers from the marvelous town of Lucca, famous for its original city walls which are just one aspect of the city's timeless beauty that over the centuries has remained intact. Truly a gem of a Tuscan town, Lucca is easily navigable on foot or by bike and is full of delightful and romantic surprises appearing around every corner.

    From the villa one can also admire the interesting and evocative Apuane Alps crowning the horizon. In fact, observing the slopes of these mountains, one can make out some of the marble quarries that export this precious stone all over the world. These peaks, often appreciated as a destination forinteresting excursions and hiking trips, are renowned for their marvelous vistas stretching out towards the not-too-distant Mediterranean sea.

    Scattered over the mountainous terrain, one can find abandoned farm buildings, uncontaminated woods and functional mountain refuges. The hill on which the villa stands is divided into different terraced areas; visually impressive and typical of this area of Tuscany, this landscaping practice has produced what are referred to as "scaloni" or "grand staircases" molding the terrain. The villa itself is found on the first terrace; the second terrace hosts a beautiful swimming pool facing the vast valley and providing a lovely spot from which to enjoy the marvelous panorama.
