Soak in the Tuscan sun at Villa San Francesco. This eleven-bedroom farmhouse near Florence dates from the turn of the century but has been recently renovated, with accommodations in both a main house and a separate cottage. Today, it offers both country charm and modern luxuries like a gym and spa facilities. The villa’s hilltop location affords beautiful panoramic views of vineyards and hills and easy access to the region’s cities and beaches.

If you’ve come to Italy to relax, you’ll appreciate the villa’s secluded grounds, filled with olive groves, cypress and aromatic herbs. Relax on the sunbeds and hammocks by the pool and Jacuzzi, taking in the view, or work up a sweat in the fitness room. There are two fully equipped kitchens, an al fresco dining area and state-of-the-art perks like a games room, computer and Wi-Fi. The home’s showpiece, however, is a spa with Jacuzzi, sauna, massage bed, showers, gym and change room, where treatments can be arranged.

Recent renovations have preserved San Francesco's beamed ceilings, cotto floors and brick arches, and added modern furnishings like plush sofas, rustic-style tables, patterned rugs and brocade and gingham fabrics. Living and dining areas are open to each other, creating a welcoming atmosphere, and multiple seating areas and a games room offer plenty of nooks for relaxing or playing. Two fully equipped kitchens have modern appliances ready to feed a crowd.

Each of the property’s eleven bedrooms has air conditioning available, as well as a ceiling fan. In the main house, there are six bedrooms with double beds; five have en-suite bathrooms and one has a private bathroom. There are also two bedrooms with two twin beds each, which have en-suite bathrooms, and a bedroom in a tower once used to house the villa’s doves with views from three sides, a double bed and private bathroom. In the cottage, there are two bedrooms that share a bathroom: one with a double bed and one with two twin beds that can be combined to form a queen.

Villa San Francescoi is southwest of Florence, between the city and the coast. The town of Tavarnelle and its grocery store are a 3-minute drive away, a tennis court in Sambuca val di Pesa is 10 minutes away, a train station and hospital in Poggibonsi are 30 minutes away and Florence’s Golf Ugolino is a 40-minute drive. If you’d like to do some sightseeing, the beach is an hour’s drive, Florence and San Gimignano are 19 miles away, Siena is 25 miles away and Pisa is 50 miles away.
