Once an old farmhouse, Villa Saracena is now a lovingly restored country house with 3 en-suite bedrooms, has been updated with modern conveniences while maintaining its stone architectural charm. The villa is set atop a hill offering terrific panoramic views of the rolling Chianti hills. Thanks to its solid structure and position where a constant cool breeze flows, the summer heat cannot affect the interior temperature of its rooms. For those in the exploring mood, nearby they will find the beautiful Siena, and the hill towns of Montalcino, Pienza and San Gimignano are easily reachable by car for day excursions.
Elegant large sitting room provided with a dining area comfortable to sit up to 10 people. Its focal point is a working fireplace, surrounded by comfortable sofas, and a unique original cone-shaped stone column. A well equipped kitchen opens onto a pergola that overlooks the swimming pool and courtyard, ideal for breakfast and lunch or dinner al fresco
A vestibule, partly converted into a functional and equipped gym area, leads to the three bedrooms. A laundry room is also available on this floor.

The villa is surrounded by olive groves, vineyards and woodland. It is fenced and adorned by well-kept hedges, which contribute to the maximum privacy of the guests. The wide terraces on three sides of the house are furnished with tables and sun loungers. The west side terrace, in particular, is the perfect spot to enjoy the sunset and the breathtaking views of the rolling vineyards.
A pergola, just outside the kitchen that overlooks the swimming pool and the courtyard, is ideal for breakfast and lunch in the shade.
