Overall Property Description:
“Luxury class. Ambrosial Haven, alla Toscana. L'Albero is one of the most upscale examples of agriturismo”. Brian A. Grow, THE WALL STREET JOURNAL. Europe, November 15 - 17, 2002
Villa l’Albero is a completely independent luxury villa and totally restored with air conditioning and WI-FI ADSL internet connection. The villa sits on an wonderful 10 acres estate of olive groves with a large private swimming pool overlooking the magnificent Chianti countryside. Its isolated and dominant position ensures complete tranquillity and a spectacular view across the hills of the Florence countryside. The villa is spacious yet cozy, fully restored in harmony with the traditional tuscan style and offers all modern comforts. Perfect for vacation with friends or the family. In the midst of olive groves with a full southern exposure, the swimming pool ensures sun continuously from morning till evening.
During the rental period, the owner lives in the restored barn behind the main house in order to guarantee total independence, complete privacy and exclusive use of the swimming pool to guests.
The villa includes 3 panoramic terraces under the trees, open to the beauty of the surrounding countryside and to the swimming pool where it is a pleasure to have lunch and dinner.
Villa l'Albero is original and artistic, and conveys an atmosphere of total privacy. Over the years, the owner of the house planned the renoon on his own with a sharp eye. He tastefully designed the interior using selected objects and carefully-chosen furnishings. The result is a true masterpiece. State-of-the-art facilities are hidden behind an unpretentious, but utterly charming surface that resembles a monastic-like simplicity. This simplicity is not accidental but the result of meticulous design deliberately limiting the furnishings to the essentials. The design was always determined by one leitmotif, namely to respect and retain the gracefulness and simplicity of the old farmhouse in harmony with its rural setting. The planning proficiently takes advantage of the natural incidence of light, which is even more important than the furnishings: the rooms overlook the valley and have been opened by round arches. The sun's rays produce a fascinating atmosphere and accentuate the plainness of the interior. The beautiful oak furniture from bygone days is unadorned and harmonizes with the antique stone, the terra-cotta floors, and the warm tones of the roof beams, to create a very nostalgic country atmosphere.
