Europe / Italy / Tuscany
The Bella Tuscany is a crowd pleaser.
No matter where you start visiting this region, you certainly will enjoy the richness of this bountiful place. Besides the stunning renaissance city of Florence, the area west of the Art City is known for its beautiful landscapes, cultural attractions, and historic sites. From the medieval hilltop towns of San Miniato, known for its truffles and the local food markets and restaurants where visitors can sample the highly prized delicacy; to the village of Vinci, birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci, and home to a dedicated museum where you can learn about the life and work of this famous Renaissance artist and inventor. Not to forget, the medieval town of San Gimignano, known for its striking towers and beautiful architecture. Among this stunning landscape of rolling hills, vineyards, olive groves, and medieval villages, Aurelisia is an exquisite XV century villa and annex, that can host up to 16 guests; it is a great place to relax and unwind, a Tuscan dream of rare beauty and a feast for the senses.
Both buildings are designed with the same concept: on the ground floor, a generous social open space with adjoining distinct zones, a sitting area with a plush sofa and chairs around a fireplace that add warmth and draw attention, and a sunlit dining area next to the steel-framed glass windows which maximize the views. Exquisite, draped curtains are placed around the large windows for added softness; to play with texture, rattan soft sofas and chairs, golden natural wood pieces and object de décor are witfully placed in the well-designed spaces. The energy of Aurelisia is special because the feeling of nature is so present. Both the villa and the annex are provided with fully equipped kitchens. A guest bathroom is present in the main villa.
The estate features a manicured Italian garden with ancient trees, hosting the private swimming pool, gated for children’s safety. Both units offer balconies and covered outdoor areas for eating al fresco; however, the piece of resistance is the Annex’s majestic panoramic terrace with balustrade, where to enjoy beautiful views of the park and the typical Tuscan surrounding landscape during the sunny summer days.
The villa and its annex offer guests the valuable benefit of additional space and privacy. This combination of two separate buildings can be especially appealing for groups or families who are traveling together, as it allows for a greater level of independence and flexibility. The annex is designed in a way that complements the style of the main villa, creating a cohesive and aesthetically pleasing overall property that would please every member of the group. Only 35 Km away is Florence – a short drive or train ride away – and within one hour driving you can reach Lucca, Pisa or Siena.
