Casa di Sopra – Tuscany
Tucked privately away in the folds of forested hills, this old stone house is perfectly at home with its timeless landscape. Imposing from the outside, it is delightfully welcoming in its big, airy rooms, where mellowed timber beams and terracotta floor tiles create a period frame for 21st century comfort. Rustic chic blends imperceptibly with understated elegance, in the charming breakfast kitchen, well equipped with modern appliances; the cool-toned country style dining room; and the adjacent spacious yet cosy sitting room.
A separate library area and TV room add informal social space, beautiful bedrooms feature four-poster beds, bathrooms are replete with polished marble, and a games room, with table tennis, opens out to the garden. Here there are shaded terraces for dining or simply relaxing and long lawns edged with lavender banks and sprinkled with trees. The beautiful swimming pool is situated in an elevated and sheltered, sunny spot approximately 50m from the villa. Sharing the same private estate as its popular sister-villa Vercenni, the house offers cook service for an extra leisurely touch, and is 3km from little shops and restaurants in Radda.
