Located a swift 5-minutes away from the ancient village of San Casciano, La Vetrichina is the perfect getaway for those looking for pure relaxation. Situated within a completely peaceful environment, this lovingly restored seven-bedroom farmhouse has gorgeous views of the surrounding countryside plus beautiful interiors. For an added peace of mind, the owners live nearby and are readily available to offer local expertise.

The gated villa has plenty of space, indoors and out. Both the living and dining rooms open to terraces, one of which is covered and has outdoor dining furniture. Have a swim in the pool, down a flight of steps from the house, take a nap in a lounger on the pool deck and rinse off in the outdoor shower. A separate guest house can be used for small parties or cooking classes. For smaller guests, there’s a selection of children’s games, books and comics; for adults, there’s a ping-pong table and Wi-Fi access. For an extra-special local experience, we can arrange to have a Tuscan cooking class brought right to you at your villa, and a private chef come and make a memorable meal for a dinner party or event. With such strong culinary traditions and delicious produce in abundance, we highly recommend both culinary experiences during your stay.

Inside, traditional terracotta floors are brightened by whitewashed beamed ceilings. In the living room, there’s plenty of seating around the original fireplace, set off by modern red and turquoise accents. The rustic-meets-modern dining room has a fireplace and farmhouse table in contemporary neutral tones. An eat-in kitchen has airy charm, plus perks like a professional espresso machine and wine cellar cabinet.

La Vetrichina’s seven bedrooms have the same breezy style. There are four bedrooms with king beds and en-suite bathrooms and one bedroom with a queen bed and en-suite bathroom. The remaining two bedrooms share a bathroom and are ideal for a family with children; one has a king bed and the other has two twin beds.

Though the villa offers the peace of a rural location, it’s only a 5-minute drive from a church — which celebrates Mass every sunday morning — plus nearby tennis courts, horse stables and riding trails. Pick up local specialties at the grocery store, where you’ll find everything you need from fresh produce to newspapers. You can also set off on a day trip from the train station which is just a 25-minute drive away. Golf enthusiasts will enjoy the course that’s 40 minutes away. If you’re arriving in or departing from the Rome airport, you can reach the villa within a 2-hour picturesque drive.&nbsp.

A Note from the Villa Owners:

Our goal when renovating Villa Vetrichina was to create a relaxing and inviting atmosphere for our guests, while respecting the unique character of this Tuscan farmhouse. Furnished in a traditional country style with great attention to detail, we are now pleased to welcome guests to this special corner of Tuscany, filled with art, nature and simplicity. Living in a house not far from the villa, we are present but absolutely discreet, and able to assist with any services you may require during your stay.” – Enzo and Patricia
