The newly restored red villa was used in the past as a stable and then as the farm manager’s house. Today it is called “Il Villino Rosso,” or the Red House, because of its very beautiful red plaster work. It is located next to the big house which is a grand and noble Medici Hunting Villa. The 210 meter (about 2,260sq ft) red villa has two floors: On the ground floor, at the entrance, there is a sunny veranda and a dual sitting-dining room with a fireplace and satellite TV hidden within a beautiful antique armoire, sprawling sofas, a library well-stocked with books and magazines, a DVD player and Persian rug. On the right is a large and beautiful eat-in kitchen, very well equipped with a dish washer, oven, microwave, toaster, mixer, American coffee machine, etc. This is a kitchen for both serious cooks and toast makers alike and opens directly onto an outdoor eating area shaded by a pergola. There is also a BBQ that can be used to prepare meals for al fresco dining overlooking a romantic Tuscan landscape. Next to the kitchen is the service room, with a washing machine, a tumble dryer, an iron and an extra bed. In the kitchen and in the service room there is a black stone floor that is wax treated. Also on the first floor is a full bathroom with a large bathtub. Upstairs you will find 4 beautiful rooms: ivory, green, pink and apricot; that can either be made up as twin or double. The upper floor is made from large wood boards, and each room has a telephone, with direct dial and intercom, shoe closet and a ceiling fan which, due to the elevation (about 180,000 m or 590,551 ft above sea level) and thick walls of the villa, are sufficient to keep you cool in all but the most appalling heat waves. The master bedroom (ivory room) is the largest room and has also a pull out sofa which can be used as a third bed. There are 2 bathrooms, each with a large walk-in shower. Everything in the house is very functional (there is even a central vacuum) but at the same time the owners have done a painstaking job, furnishing the house with beautiful art and antiques. It has also been carefully made child friendly.

From the roof, which is a terrace, you will be delighted with the very beautiful sight of the surrounding hills, some topped with ancient villages. Volterra is the most impressive. Here there is a telescope and at night you will be able to admire the beautiful starry skies, unspoiled by the lights of big cities. Villino rosso is provided with wireless satellite Internet access.

There is a hair dryer in each bathroom.

The gardens and grounds around the villa are beautiful. The swimming pool (pool towels are provided) is private for our guests, has the most amazing views and a black interior which creates a mirror-like appearance: fabulous cypress trees & vibrant blue skies reflect beautifully . It is 5m x 10 m (about 16 1/2 x 33 ft).
The pool is immediately adjacent to the house and is perfectly visible from the windows.
