Total Luxury - Italy special occasion villa with services - this magnificent 14th century estate is situated in the heart of rural Tuscany between San Gimignano and Siena. The villa's hilltop position offers wonderful 360 degree views of the surrounding countryside across mature grounds, encompassing an impressive approach along a drive lined with cypress trees.
The estate has been under the ownership of the same Italian family for centuries, and it has recently been completely renovated to provide extremely comfortable, spacious accommodation for large groups. The annexes have also been refurbished and offer additional flexibility for families and/or friends travelling together. Antique furniture in keeping with the age and standing of the house is subtly blended with more modern facilities. The high level of service that you can expect to receive at this prestigious villa cannot be over-emphasised. Several experienced staff members are based on site but they are highly professional and unobtrusive, and your privacy will be respected at all times. The estate has enjoyed successful visits from and hosted important celebrations on behalf of a number of high-profile figures, including world-ranking politicians, religious leaders and entrepreneurs. The staff are accustomed to looking after their guests well and providing assistance at every level.
Tenuta Val d' Elsa is ideally situated just a 20 minute drive from Siena and only 40 minutes from Florence and the nearest airport. Historical Tuscan hilltop towns such as San Gimignano, Volterra and Monteriggioni are very close by, while others such as Montalcino (known for its famous Brunello wine) would make a very enjoyable day trip.
If you're looking for a particularly special place to hold a large reunion, an anniversary party, a wedding or celebration of any kind, Tenuta Val d'Elsa would make a truly memorable venue. It is exceptional in every respect. You would be able to relax in the certainty that your celebration - or, more simply, your holiday - would go very smoothly at this wonderful estate. It does not get better than this.
