External Description: This is a country villa sitting on a secluded mountain top in the countryside not far from a tiny stone village called Tocchi, which is located approximately 20 minutes drive south of Siena. Records show the villa dates back to 1204. The villa was inhabited until the start of World War II, after which it was left to fall into ruin. In 1995 the present owner bought the property and has painstakingly restored it, transforming it into a wonderfully villa that allows guests the opportunity to pamper themselves. In the extensive gardens there is a beautiful large pool (20x10 meter and deep 1,60 meter) positioned below the villa. The lawn surrounding the pool is dotted with sunbeds, chairs and umbrellas, providing guests the perfect sunny position to relax and enjoy the breathtaking views of the river Merse valley. Next to the pool there is a sauna that is open for use during predefined times of the day, the exact times will be provided on arrival at the villa. The sauna area also has showers and changing rooms. The external part of the complex is complete and includes three tubs heated to different temperatures, a frigidarium (cold), the tepidarium (tepid) and a caldarium (hot) nestled on the edge of the forest with the perfume of the nearby lemon and orange trees wafting past. Guests can start their circuit of the bath complex with a sauna in the fine Finish sauna, progress to the solar heated swimming pool. Villa Astro 27 exudes such tranquility and natural beauty that it will be very tempting to just stay there, enjoying the fresh air, walking through the forest, toiling in the organic vegetable garden with the gardener, assisting the chef to prepare dinner or simply lazing around and listening to the sounds nature. Scattered around the gardens are several furnished terraces where it is possible to enjoy the Tuscan sun in total tranquillity. The forest has several hiking trails with benches located at several points to admire the view. These trails pass various livestock that belong to the villa owner.
