The flat is situated on the main village road within the archways.
Guests who choose this flat are people who wish to mingle with the locals and experience life in a medieval village.

Accommodation Description

The apartment was totally restored and re furnished in the 1990's. The owners (American and Florentine) were faithful in keeping the flat's medieval charm, blending ancient and contemporary pieces giving the flat a very Tuscan feeling. Their collection of artwork given this Tuscan home a hint of the Orient. The Italian tiled bathroom has a large shower stall as opposed to a bath tub There is a bidet, sink and w.c. The master bedroom (with its queen size antique, rod iron bed) is upstairs. There is a very private rooftop terrace off the master bedroom. The extensive panorama from this terrace is truly magical. The bistro table and chairs on the terrace are perfect for relaxing with a glass of Chianti wine whilst admiring the enchanting Tuscan sunsets. The views from the bifora window in the master bedroom are a painter's delight! The downstairs bedroom has two single beds. The view from the downstairs bedroom is similar to that of the master bedroom (only one floor lower). The living room/dining room with its open alcove kitchen area is a great central room to dine and converse. It is roomy and comfortably furnished. There are two sofas in this room. One of these sofas makes into a single bed (for a 5th person if necessary). The fully-equipped kitchen alcove blends well with the living /dining area with its Carrara marble and Venetian stucco. There is a t.v.and cd player in the living room. A smaller t.v. with cable (CNN) is in the master bedroom. Th kitchen is well equiped as the owner gives cooking lessons there on request.The flat has air conditioning.
