The background

a stylish rural retreat with a contemporary look and a fresh approach to getting away from it all.

set on top of the narrow, winding, cypress tree-lined road that is one of tuscany’s most iconic sites and surrounded by rolling sheep pastures, the four acre property combines the sophisticated elegance of a private villa with the full time services of a small country inn.

the property is an exclusive retreat for families or groups of friends, the eight airy guest rooms and open plan common spaces come with maid service, a full time english-speaking concierge and gourmet chef but what makes the property truly unique is how designers ab rogers in london and da studio in florence collaborated to reinvent the “rustic” aesthetic (dark woods, heavy fabrics, small windows etc) of most Tuscan houses, instead creating an open, light-filled modern villa with beautiful traditional materials.

Spaces

formerly a derelict farm, the property is set on four acres high up within a two thousand acre nature reserve--a stunningly beautiful location with 360 degree views of the hills, hilltop villages, and medieval ruined fortresses of the val d’orcia.

there is a 72 square meter infinity swimming pool with infinity edge facing west across the wide valley, a hot tub, and a covered dining pergola for outdoor dining and relaxing. the nearest neighbours are only sheep, so there are no noise restrictions on late night parties, (or long sleep-ins!)

inside, the eight guest rooms have cream-colored stone floors, brand new queen size mattresses with luxury white linens from bussati, massive showers with santa maria novella, chianti cashmere and hotel sirenuse eau d’Italie skincare products, and in several rooms stand alone bathtubs with views over the valley.

the brand new kitchen is outfitted with professional appliances and is designed as the center of the open plan main common area downstairs. there is a long wood table for dining, a record player with the owner’s personal collection of classic records and a flat screen television in front of an oversized designer sofa. upstairs, there is a second common area in front of a large open fireplace. high-speed wireless internet is available throughout the building.

Architecture & design

the property was designed by ab rogers of ab rogers design, ernesto bartolini and arianna pieri of da.studio. their other clients include comme des garcons in paris and the tate modern in london. sarteano based architect fabrizio bardelli oversaw the renovation work on site.

Things to do

Activities

the full time gourmet chef can booked for private meals at any time.

although there is a lot to see and do, the val d’orcia is not an area for rushing from sight to sight. it’s a place for wandering down country footpaths, lingering over long lunches in medieval towns, and sampling a well aged bottle of brunello.
