Overall Property Description:
"Welcome to Paradise!" sounds one of the villa's reviews...and actually this villa is really beautiful with a stunning view over the surrounding countryside near Montalcino.
It has been completely renovated, a sensitive operation which was carried out with great care to maintain original structural features. Extensive use of terracotta tiles, exposed ceiling beams, traditional brickwork and dark woods lends a warm depth to the airy, spacious rooms.
The villa, which can accommodate up to 14 guests, has seven bedrooms each with an en-suite bathroom (with a hydro-massage tub). There are two spacious living rooms with a large fireplace, a dining room, a dressing room and two extra bathrooms.
The furniture has been carefully selected for comfort and appearance, and consists largely of antique and classic pieces.
In spite of the old-fashioned, luxurious atmosphere, Villa Casanuova offers a modern, comfortable holiday experience: air conditioning in the screened bedrooms, a sauna, an office with an internet-connected computer, satellite TV, a professional kitchen suitable for cooking courses...
