This beautiful independent villa is located in the spectacular landscape well known as Val d’Orcia, a short distance from the small hamlet of Monticchiello and also within easy reach of Pienza. When the owners bought the property it was just a ruin but a long and careful restoration has transformed it in to a high quality and comfortable villa with a delightful pool.
In restoring the structure as a comfortable vacation house of exceptional character, the owners\' main aim was to respect the original features of the building. Rooms with wood-beamed ceilings are well-sized and open to the most beautiful views of the valley, with wheat fields, olive groves, and cypress trees. The owner family maintained the traditional structure of the farmhouse and kept the house divided into two independent units: the ground level, once the stables, which can accommodate ten people, and the top level, where the peasants used to live, which sleeps four more people. As a result, Villa Pamina is the perfect setting for family reunions or groups of friends looking for an “oasis” of tranquility, surrounded by art and culture.
The villa sleeps 14 guests and is approximately 600 sqmt. On the ground floor there is a fully-equipped chef\'s kitchen (fridge with freezer, oven, microwave oven, kettle, 5 rings cooker, dishwasher); a huge living-dining room with double doors opening to the front patio and to the back garden. In the smaller living room there is a large stone fireplace surrounded by wide red sofas spreading a warm and cozy atmosphere. Five spacious bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms complete the remaining space on this floor. An external stone staircase leads to the upper floor unit; four breathtaking arched windows overlook the valley and the huge oak tree in front of the house, creating an open and dynamic space. Another large stone fireplace offers an ideal retreat for afternoon reading. A fully equipped kitchen will appeal to those who love cooking, and the vistas and plantings from the many windows are very pleasing to the eye. The extensive lawn is mainly seeded with grass to maintain the open space of the valley and not to restrict the view around the farmhouse. Terracotta pots with geraniums, wild roses, and bushes of lavender and rosemary create a beautiful frame around the pool. The covered dining space with fireplace, pizza oven, barbecue, table and chairs will let guests enjoy unforgettable Tuscan sunsets. A laundry room with washing machine, hangers, ironing board and iron is available for the guests of the villa. Monticchiello is the nearest village, just two km away; Pienza is seven km away; Siena is about 72 km away.
