Villa Sogno is a stunning contemporary villa, sleeps 16 - 18
Villa Sogno is a rare find, country charm combined with contemporary taste and refined details. The villa dates back to the 17th century and was once a stopping place for pilgrims on their way to Rome. This beautiful stone farmhouse has been restored with great care and attention to detail by a young architect who spent his summers in this lovely area of Tuscany. He fell in love with the traditional houses of Tuscany and using his flair, he restored this fabulous farmhouse back to much more than its former glory. Located within easy reach of San Casciano dei Bagni (spa town) and also Cetona, it is a great location for exploring the wonderful picture postcards views of southern Tuscany.
Other parts of Tuscany are an easy day trip away.
Fully staffed and catered (breakfast, light lunch, snacks, dinner, drinks)
The interior design in Villa Sogno could be described as restrained good taste with quirky touches - lightly washed beams, light wooden flooring, pale shades of cream and beige, hints of coloured accessories, accent colours in some bedrooms and the glimpses of greenery from the garden and shrubbery all combine to create relaxing, comfortable interiors. Every corner of the house and garden is decorated with quirky, well-chosen pieces to enhance the stone building, the views and fit in with the surroundings.
SLEEPS 16 - 18+
