About this listing
A magnificent pine tree marks the profile of Villa Antico Pino: a wonderful stone house lying at the foot to an age old wood. It is surrounded by wild woods full of olive trees, nestling in the large well-kept garden full of plants, flowers and a beautiful pool. We are very lucky. The owners' love and care have turned the former farm house into a splendid country house, equipped with every modern comfort, using only natural, chemical-free products. The villas been covered with a cork roof, the floors are made of warm Tuscan terracotta and the walls are painted with water colours. On the ground floor is the sitting room, brightly painted in Estruscan red. The original 17th-century chest compliments the focal point of the room: a 19th-century liberty fireplace made of pietra serena. There are also two modern and comfortable Sofas (offering two extra sleeps) . windows. Next lies the spacious dining room, painted in a sunny yellow colour. This has another fireplace ideal for grilling. The painted glass-fronted cupboard is from the 18th century while the sofa, the chest of drawers and the plate cabinet are all dating from the 19th century. From here guests can access a reading and writing area situated under brick and stone vaults, and to a small but precious toilet. The kitchen is beautifully decorated with handmade painted tiles in the colours of old cortonese ceramics, and functional: 5 gas hobs, microwave, dishwasher, oven, fridge and freezer. A stone staircase, leading to the first floor ,has a bookcase with a wide range of Italian, English and French books. At the top of this staircase, a beautiful stained- glass door leads to the bedrooms. The master bedroom is decorated in antique pink, orange and gold and has an antique French bed - the headboard and the abat-jours date back to the eighteenth century. There are also a wardrobe and two large antique mirrors. From the window guests can see the pool and the surroundings wood. The other bedroom has two single beds and is decorated in lilac with modern furnishings. The bathroom, tiled in light blue and white. Finally, at the ground floor, there is one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom: it has its private entrance and direct access to the garden. Outside lies a large terrace where guests can sit and eat in the summer, enjoying the views of the Tuscan/Umbrian countryside. In the lower garden, situated next to a children's play area, is a small wooden chalet which hides the laundry room.
