Villa at Belvedere is an ancient traditional Tuscan country house, fully renovated with in 2013. The villa is equipped with all comforts and has excellent finishes, simple and refined furnishings, a lush park and a panoramic swimming, making it the ideal place for small events, weddings, birthdays and family reunions.
The green woods all around and the characteristic medieval town centre of Santa Fiora towering above are just a taste of the wonders that this corner of Tuscany has to offer, starting from Etruscan towns steeped in history, like Pitigliano, Sorano and Sovana; the woods and medieval villages of Monte Amiata, the Val d’Orcia, the wine lands such as Montepulciano and Montalcino, the spas of Saturnia, Bagno Vignoni and San Casciano di Bagni, up to the great art cities, not forgetting the culinary excellence and natural beauties, unique in the world
The medieval village of Santa Fiora, considered one of the most beautiful villages in Italy, contains the remains of the ancient castle Aldobrandesco and the Peschiera park downstream revealing the ancient and rich history of the country, made of miners and mines, fishermen and fish, nobles and palaces.
The villa has two floors which, due to the sloping ground, have both direct access to the outside. Laurel hedges and a small lawn area border the main entrance on the first floor which leads into a small hallway on to which open two double bedrooms, one with a balcony, and a double bedroom with divisible beds, all facing the view. One of the rooms has an en-suite bathroom with shower while the other two share a second bathroom with shower. From the hallway a wooden staircase leads to the living area which consists of a large open-plan space with toilet, living room, well-equipped kitchen and dining room. From here two large French windows open on to the portico, furnished with table and chairs, where you can enjoy alfresco meals whilst admiring the landscape.
The woods and the olive grove, part of a 4-hectare estate, border the garden surrounding the house with many tall trees typical of this area such as chestnuts, oaks and cypresses, walnut, hazelnut, cherry and apple trees. You can spend your days relaxing in the beautiful garden, arranged in three large terraces, with lawn enlivened by colourful flower pots, full of interesting corners such as the outdoor seating area with sofas and armchairs or the panoramic terrace with the brickwork barbecue where you can cook delicious grills. Not far from the main entrance is a gravel parking area from which two charming paths will take you, in just a few minutes, through the woods, alongside little streams, to the village centre.
A few large steps cross the lawn along the 20 m separating the house from the panoramic swimming pool, set in the lowest terrace of the garden and clearly visible from the rooms and patio.
