In the Valdichiana valley in Tuscany near Cortona, Montepulciano, and Lake Trasimeno in Umbria is this recently built villa suitable for up to 13 guests with its own private pool, airconditioning and great views over the Tuscan hills.
The villa is in the hamlet of Farneta, where in the last century even fossils of prehistoric elephants were found by the flamboyant local priest that left quite a cultural heritage in this small hamlet. Farneta itself is a small hamlet with one bar.
The pool of 6 by 12 meters has been fenced and offers a unique view over the hills towards Cortona. If you like walking or cycling this is an excellent choice. The valley of the Valdichiana is hilly, but not mountainous.
In the garden near the barbecue is a covered terrace overlooking the Tuscan hills.

The villa was originally divided into three spacious apartments and hence why there are three complete kitchens to use. The villa is recently built and has all modern comfort.
On the main floor is a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with a single bed sharing one bathroom. To this end of the building is a separate fully equipped kitchen.
The other side of this floor has a bedroom with a double bed and a bedroom with a bunk bed. These rooms share a bathroom. In between the two areas is a large space turned into a living and dining room, and also here is a spacious fully equipped kitchen.
A staircase leads upstairs where there is a double bedroom with a bathroom.
Going down the stairs to the lower floor is an apartment all open plan with a double bedroom, a bathroom, and a third fully equipped kitchen. French doors open up to the garden with the swimming pool. Here an extra bed can be made for two more guests.
Each kitchen has a dishwasher, a large fridge with a freezer, and an induction plate to cook. The bathrooms have a shower and one also has a bathtub. Each bathroom has a hairdryer fixed to the wall.
There is air conditioning and wifi. To the side of the house is a laundrette with a washing machine, dryer, and iron.
The pool is open from mid-May to the end of September.
