Villa Marini is just over an hour from Florence and 2 hours drive from the Pisa airport. It is situated in Val d'Orcia just outside of Pienza. Pienza is a picturesque Renaissance town, perched on a hill with sweeping views of the valley.

The swimming pool is generously proportioned and a pool table is available to guests to use. The charming villa owners provide an excellent concierge service and are able to book a yoga instructor, a wine and cheese tasting or private chef for you, family and friends. Meals can be prepared in the larger kitchen and eaten inside or on one of the many patios overlooking the incredible landscape.

Villa Marini’s owners took great care restoring the villa while maintaining it’s rustic charm and there is a little bit of Tuscan in every detail. You will feel like you are part of the Tuscan lifestyle, but also be able to enjoy all the modern comforts you like including WiFi, a separate TV snug, air-conditioning and central heating.

        About the host
        We, sisters, with our husbands spotted the abandoned farmhouse in the year 2000. It took us another four years to obtain all the necessary planning consents and that was our second miracle.We wanted to create a beautiful, comfortable and extravagant retreat with a relaxed atmosphere where our relatives, friends and friends of friends could come to enjoy OUR TUSCAN WAY OF LIFE!
