The Villa di Geggiano stately home is a historic gem that has been in the same family for the last 500 years and is worth a detour in its own right to admire its superb gardens and setting, as well as the exquisite decoration and furnishings of its rooms. There's even a pope's bedroom with suitable adornments.
In front of the main villa is a formal garden with a small open air theatre for music and it's a perfect setting for weddings.
The rental villa is just outside the boundary wall, with independent access and parking. As you would expect from owners with such high standards, it has been restored to luxurious standards, with use of opulent materials to ensure guests feel at home.
The majority of the unit is on ground level with access directly out to the grounds. A flight of stone steps leads up to the second bedroom - both bedrooms have a dressing room with ample storage and en suite bathroom with double sink, bath tub and shower cubicle. All tastes are catered for!
Outside, the Jacuzzi with stone surround and wooden decking provides a shady area for cooling off in the summer sun. It's a pleasant spot and just a short walk from the villa.
The location is fantastic! 5 miles to the south is Siena, with its atmospheric streets and, of course, the famous Palio race in summer. To the north are the wine estates of Chianti, though we personally would stick to the excellent house organic produce.
Go on, spoil yourselves. You deserve it!
