A former country retreat of the local nobility, Villa Lavanda is situated on a wine producing estate and originally dates back to the 1800s. The charming property has been lovingly restored by it's current owners to provide luxurious accommodation with a private pool which can be heated. Ideally located in a private, secluded location yet only 4.5 Km from the village of Palaia. Beautiful linens, soft pillows, bathrobes, slippers and complimentary toiletries even the kitchen is stocked with an initial supply of provisions and of course a complimentary bottle of the estate’s wine! Wi-fi. Air-con. Cook and babysitting service available. Daily maid included in the price.

Villa Lavanda is an unusual and attractive Swiss-style cottage hidden amongst the trees, once a country folly for the Count that owned the estate. It sleeps 6, with 3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 1 half bath.

The accommodation is divided over three floors, with total floor area of 325 m². The ground floor has two bedrooms, each with en-suite bathroom, and the laundry room, while the middle floor has the large living room with comfortable seating for 8, welcoming kitchen and dining room leading to a side terrace for al fresco dining.

The top floor has the Master bedroom and bathroom. On a lower level in front of the house is the swimming pool (7m x 12m) with own indoor shower, sun terrace, loungers and umbrellas. Also by this pool area is the charcoal barbecue area with two fridges and further tables with chairs.

Wireless internet is available throughout, as well as TV with satellite & DVD player, a Bose docking station for Apple iPod, and telephone. The grounds are fully enclosed and access is via remote-controlled gates.

The vast estate is dotted with more than twenty ruined farmhouses, originally built for entire families and their livestock. Three have been restored into wonderful luxury which are available for rental. Each villa is different, revealing the shape of the old farmhouse under its modern skin, and are appointed with simple yet extremely high-quality furniture, fixtures, and fabrics.

Each villa has electric gates, private outdoor swimming pool, barbecue and comfortable shaded seating areas. While nestled in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, the villas are only a short distance from all day-to-day essentials including supermarket, shops and restaurants in Palaia, Forcoli and other neighbouring villages.

Upon arrival you will be greeted by a member of staff and shown around the villa. You will find the kitchen stocked with an initial supply of provisions including fruit juice, coffee, tea, milk, bread and butter. We are also pleased to offer you a complimentary bottle of the estate’s wine for your enjoyment.

Luxurious touches are offered for your comfort and pleasure: beautiful linens, soft pillows, hairdryers and complimentary toiletries. We can put you in touch with local companies that provide a range of services from in-house chef to local tours

Pool is fenced and can be heated for 300 Euros per week - payable locally.
