|Casa Marta, an enchanting farmhouse built in 1866, stands on top of a gentle green
hill surrounded by flowing fields of sunflowers and wheat. Lined with cypress
trees, it is a classic portrait of Tuscany.
This villa is wonderful for large family getaways because of its ideal location
and nearby activities. The property boasts of large outdoor spaces, a lush
garden with pool and comfortable interiors that can accommodate 12 people in the
main house and 4 extra people in a lovely cottage. The main house
contains 6 double bedrooms and 5 bathrooms.

Casa Marta consists of an extensive, beautiful garden full of flowers and old
lemon trees, and also a large pool (10x5 meters) with patio and sun chairs.
Stunning white roses, begonias and jasmine cover the main house in the spring
season. A marble table suitable for 15 people sits in the front of the house
and is perfect for al fresco dining. In the garden there is also an authentic
outdoor pizza oven and a BBQ. There is a cat that lives in the garden of the house.
The main house (450 sq meters) has been carefully restored and tastefully
furnished by the owner, a young Italian architect, who mixed the traditional
country style with a taste for minimal design. The result is a unique and
attractive look. Please review photos of this property to ascertain if its
style meets your particular taste.

traditional fireplace. The following room is a comfortable study with another

The cottage (150 sq meters) is a lovely little house that used to be a
granary of the main farm. The owner has recently masterfully restored it, paying
