Wonderful villa with medieval tower and swimming pool, located near Siena, amidst the vineyards and hills of Chianti area, with breathtaking views over the city of the Palio. Surrounded by a large garden with loggia and outdoor dining area, the villa can accommodate up to 14 people, has 8 bedrooms and 7 bathrooms. EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION Villa la Rotonda is a wonderful villa located near Siena, amidst the vineyards and hills of Chianti area, with breathtaking views over the city of the Palio. From the entrance of the property, you have to walk a 400-meter-long driveway (bounded by hedges and olive trees) leading to a roundabout surrounded by centuries-old cypresses. This roundabout was chosen by the Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci for an important sequence in his film “Stealing Beauty”. ...Wonderful villa with medieval tower and swimming pool, located near Siena, amidst the vineyards and hills of Chianti area, with breathtaking views over the city of the Palio.

EXTERNAL DESCRIPTION Villa la Rotonda is a wonderful villa located near Siena, amidst the vineyards and hills of Chianti area, with breathtaking views over the city of the Palio. From the entrance of the property, you have to walk a 400-meter-long driveway (bounded by hedges and olive trees) leading to a roundabout surrounded by centuries-old cypresses. This roundabout was chosen by the Italian director Bernardo Bertolucci for an important sequence in his film “Stealing Beauty”. After the roundabout, continuing to walk along the driveway between olive groves, you will reach the villa. The property – owned by a couple of cosmopolitan architects – is surrounded by a large garden designed with medicinal plants according to the “Genius Loci” of the Siena countryside. Inside the garden, there are several areas characterised by pergolas, by shaded areas around the swimming pool, by a loggia with sofas and a dining area overlooking the courtyard, ideal for alfresco breakfasts and candlelight dinners. The outdoor areas are embellished with a salt water swimming pool (5 x 15 m), equipped with lounge open bar and shaded pavilions with sunbeds and deck chairs. Lastly, at guests' disposal a vegetable garden, an orchard and a table tennis. Thanks to its magical beauty, Villa la Rotonda has appeared in major international magazines such as “House and Garden”, “Architectural Digest”, “Architektur and Wohnen”, “Class”, as well as on the cover of the French book “L’Art de Vivre en Toscane”. INTERNAL DESCRIPTION The property, made up of the main building and the medieval tower, can accommodate up to 14 people for a total of 8 bedrooms and 7 bathroom (including 6 ensuite). Villa Rotonda is the result of a careful restoration made by the owners, a couple of architects who designed both the interiors with a minimalist approach and the garden surrounding the villa where the landscape blends with the traces of the hedges, the parterres and the lawns. Main house (450 sqm): Set on 2 floors with 5 bedrooms and 5 bathrooms. After the hall, on the ground floor you will find a living room with sofas, and a spacious kitchen, equipped with fireplace, oven, refrigerator and dishwasher.

Upstairs there is another living room with sofas, fireplace and grand piano, and a studio with a large flat-screen tv, an Apple computer and a library. The sleeping area consists of three rooms: the first one with double bed (160 x 200 cm), dressing room and ensuite bathroom with bathtub; the second one with single bed (140 x 200 cm) and ensuite bathroom with shower; the third one with 2 single beds (of 80 x 200 cm each) and ensuite bathroom with bathtub.
