Overview

This spacious villa offers extensive views of the Umbrian countryside. There are numerous important art sites nearby, such as Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni, Orvieto, Lago di Bolsena, Todi, Perugia, Chiusi, San Quirico d’Orcia, and San Casciano dei Bagni. The blessed location of Villa Banxiana, on the border between Tuscany and Umbria, makes it a great starting point to explore both regions.

The décor of the house is unique with art and crafts from all over the world offering an informal and relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere. The farmhouse grows its own organic vegetables and produces organic extra virgin olive oil.

Accommodations

Ground Floor

  • Several comfortable sitting areas and a magnificent eat-in kitchen/dining room with an open fireplace and a large dining table
  • Cozy winter garden completely furnished for lounging with seating for six and wood-burning stove
  • Sitting/TV room with fireplace, game table and extensive library in English opens onto outdoor patio/dining area

Outside Features

The garden, overlooking a fabulous 360-degree panorama, is furnished with tables and chairs, featuring a large covered patio for dining “al fresco” or “a lume di candela”, or just relaxing under the trees. The pool is easily reachable both through a short staircase, by car within the garden, or by car through a small road within the property. The pool (7 x 18 meters) was converted from an old water basin and is circled by a low wall where there are comfortable sun mats and sun beds. In the annexed living room there is also a sauna and a bathroom with shower. From the pergola that opens in front of the lounge room, you can enjoy a wonderful view of the valley. Have a Martini by the pool at sunset or, during the Autumn months, a glass of Tintoretto (prosecco with granedine).
