Villa Sauro can be found in the heart of Tuscany, Italy just outside of Pienza. This magnificently restored private villa is spacious and able to accommodate up to 14 people, making it ideal for a big large group of friends or two families sharing. The traditional Tuscan architecture and interior have been meticulously modernized to include WiFi, air-conditioning and a yoga room. The villa’s most striking feature is its 24-metre swimming pool, that you’re able to enjoy inside as a bath and outside, surrounded by loungers to soak up the sun during the warm Italian summers.

Villa Sauro is just over an hour from Florence and a two-hour drive from Pisa airport. The property is situated in Val d'Orcia, just outside of Pienza. Pienza is a picturesque Renaissance town, home to many beautiful churches and a clock tower. It is a great base to explore the valley from – you can visit Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia or Montepulciano. There is also the small medieval village of Monticchiello, as well as Bagno Vignoni which is well known for its hot springs. A visit to the castle at Radicofani is recommended and the truffle hunting in San Giovanni d'Asso is renowned.

The villa is arranged as two separate properties with two kitchens and two living areas making it ideal for two families to share. The Tuscan-style kitchens are fully equipped and large enough to cook and share a meal in the true Italian style. The furnishings are traditional yet comfortable with original wooden architraves and open brickwork completing the idyllic Tuscan ambiance.

Villa Sauro is truly authentic yet with the all the modern comforts, such as air-conditioning, central heating, WiFi and satellite TV. The pool is the properties most spectacular feature - 24 meters of sparkling salt water with 6 meters tucked inside for private baths or night-time swims. There is also a yoga room with a private bathroom and changing area, ideal for morning Sun Salutations in the peaceful countryside, as well as a ping-pong table to enjoy.

The 8 beautiful bedrooms all have en-suite bathrooms – two with Jacuzzi baths and three with double shower heads. All bedroom windows are fitted with Mosquito screens so you can sleep undisturbed with the windows open in the warm summer nights. Cleaning and linen change is on Saturday’s but additional hours can be arranged on request. The villa’s owners are passionate about service and are delighted to assist with all your holiday needs, such booking a yoga instructor, a wine and cheese tasting or private chef.

Set in the idyllic Tuscan countryside with a backdrop of rolling hills, this really is the perfect authentic Tuscan retreat. A private and rural villa in the heart of Val D'Orcia with breathtaking views, swimming pool, yoga room and more is ideal for a large family with children, two families or a group of friends. The Tuscan way of life will stay in your heart and memories for years to come.

        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!
