    View Shortlist

    Tucked away in 15 hectares of land, this lovely stone farmhouse has carved a little niche out of the woody hills of the Tiberina Valley. Six ensuite bedrooms, no less! Plus a second kitchen and numerous snug and cosy living areas make this the perfect Tuscan hidey-hole for two families on holiday together, who want to escape all but each other. Read More

    Peeping out from its hilltop, villa Cretole overlooks the rising and falling of the Tuscan hills. And what a view it is! It’s a villa for the great romantics out there. Secreted away inside is a fascinating warren of rooms, running together through great open doorways.

    Walking into the ground floor hall, the story begins. And like any good story, there’s a knight in shining armour. Or a suit of armour at least. He stands guard at the base of a sweeping stone staircase, lit from above by a magnificent chandelier. Take in some of the decorative touches that give this place a personality all its own; a stone water trough, a great stone bust peering out from a lit alcove, watching the goings on of the house.

    On one hand Cretole is a villa that’s traditional and homely. Honey-stone floors, bright white walls and warm lighting run from room to room. Terracotta tiled ceilings crossed with wooden beams are classically Tuscan. On the other hand though… As more decorative flourishes jump out, it’s starting to feel a little less rustic and a lot more elegant. Period, shabby chic furnishings nod to olde world charm, while being very à la mode. A gilt mirror here, a chandelier there, a hint of gold in the upholstery… Quite the design coup, don’t you think?

    Here are all the comforts of a modern, luxury holiday home, wrapped up in traditional charm. A flat screen satellite TV sits next to a beautiful carved stone fireplace. Antiquely furnished bedrooms’ are crisp white and air-con cooled, opening into stylish ensuites. Freestanding baths, walk in rainfall showers and shiny stainless steel fittings sit along vintage décor and stone carvings. This is 21st century luxury holiday living in a timeless Tuscan guise.

    The kitchen too has all the hallmarks of a farmhouse room with its slatted wooden finish and wall-racking. Actually it’s equipped with all the mod cons needed for any budding Gino d\'Acampos to feed hungry holidaymakers. The best part? It opens out on to one of two large terraces. A dining suite and umbrellas await a late breakfast overlooking the Tuscan hills. Go authentically Italian with a pastry and an espresso (a coffee machine is the staple of an Italian kitchen, after all). There’s no better way, or place, to start the day.

    For a shadier spot, a second covered terrace at the back of the villa is the perfect place to drink up the views in your own little Eden. With Italian simplicity in mind, a natural and unfussy garden melts into its surroundings. A neat, shrub-lined lawn runs down the gentle slope. A scattering of trees give a touch of shade, with a pretty lily pond at the top. In a world of green, take a dip into the blue, with a large private pool carved out of the hill.

    Sat in this Tuscan sweet spot, you’re just 10 minutes from medieval hilltop village of Monterchi and 30 minutes from Arezzo. In less than an hour and a half, you can swap the rustic and rural for Renaissance splendour at Florence or Siena. The phrase “best of both worlds” has never be truer.

    Exploration aside, back at your villa are other discoveries to be made. Cretole is intriguingly beautiful. Scattered with eccentricities and decorative touches, you could spend a week or two exploring the rooms and grounds, and always finding some new detail. If you’re looking for a villa that’s unique, for a holiday that’s unique, you’ve certainly found it here.
