Villa Opera is truly a work of art. Located in the center of a large working estate where they still produce grains, it\'s a large and grand villa rental surrounded by gardens and forest, including centuries-old cypress trees. A traditional 2-story stone structure originally built as a nobleman\'s hunting lodge, the villa is divided into two levels, each with a completely separate entrance. Altogether Villa Opera is an immense 670 square meters, almost 7000 square feet. The main entrance is at ground level and the upstairs is by an external stone staircase. Interiors have been fully renovated and modernized without compromising the traditional Tuscan features of terracotta floors, beamed ceilings, and archways. The villa consists of a fully-equipped kitchen, 3 living rooms, 2 dining rooms, a family/TV/game room, 12 bedrooms, 7 full bathrooms and 2 half bathrooms. The large terrace, equipped with table and chairs for dining al fresco, overlooks the beautiful Tuscan countryside. The large pool is in a sunny location with the same breathtaking views of the rolling hills. Just 10 minutes away from Monteroni d\'Arbia where you\'ll find restaurants, cafes, bars, shops, a supermarket and sports complex with tennis courts.

Cooking classes can be organized upon request. Please ask us for details.

We thought the Villa was wonderful! Everything worked well. The people were lovely, the view from the pool over the hills of Tuscany was fantastic! The location close enough to Siena was perfect and it was an easy drive to Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano as well as Florence.
