Villa Description

Immersed in the rolling Tuscan countryside, this renovated 18th-century home preserves its traditional architecture and offers guests one of the most authentic Italian experiences available at our villas in Tuscany.

Start your stay at Podere Scopicciolo with a tour of the property, a Tuscan-style welcome dinner, and Prosecco toast with your hosts. The villa owners live in a separate pavilion on the property, and will be happy to share their local recommendations for discovering all that Tuscany has to offer!

Relax on the lounge chairs by the infinity edge pool surrounding by herb and rose gardens. Have your morning coffee in the gazebo set on a stone patio while enjoying the views. Later, enjoy an alfresco meal at the wrought-iron table, with food prepared on the wood-fired stone barbecue and pizza oven, or in the gourmet kitchen.

This villa was restored in 2010 with state-of-the-art building systems such as a ventilated roof and insulated fixtures. A geothermal system, combined with a radiant system under the floors, provides a “cellar effect” temperature in summer with less humidity in the air (thanks to dehumidifiers) and regular heating in winter. Thermostats in each room can customize the temperature with a few hours response time (depending on the outside temperature).The interior is furnished with family heirlooms, contemporary art and antique carpets.

Accommodating up to 12 guests, the villa’s bedrooms are divided between the main villa, with six bedrooms, and a guesthouse. On the ground floor you’ll find a king-sized bedroom with a private entrance to the garden as well as a smaller loft-style single bedroom. Upstairs are four ensuite bedrooms, including the master suite, with a walk-in closet and fireplace. The guesthouse features a king-size bed in the upstairs loft, as well a kitchenette, two bathrooms, and a living room with a sofa bed.

The small hill town of Casole d’Elsa is a five-minute drive away, with local restaurants and cafes. Podere Scopicciolo is an ideal base for exploring Tuscany’s attractions, from the historic cities of Florence and Siena, to the vineyards of the Chianti wine region.
