Villa San Francesco

This Just finished farmhouse is surely paradise itself. Stroll through the many acres of gardens, fields and orchards and take in the view of the magnificent green hills beyond.

Villa San Francesco, 5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms and private pool, is an elegant 19th century 'Casa Padronale' just finished after a very careful restoration and set in well kept terraced gardens, surrounded by gentle wooded hills with majestic mountains in the distance. 

The beautiful old stonework of the house is full of character and inside, the rooms have kept the authenticity of the building. Modern bathrooms and a very modern kitchen combined with lovely antiques and many original details of the original building.
The bathrooms are of a very high standard and well-appointed. The bedrooms are large and bright, with high quality bed linens and antique furniture, each window framing a snapshot of the Tuscan countryside.
For those who like to explore put of season, the fireplace in the sitting room is wonderful for cosying up with a good book.
Outside the house a nice covered area with comfortable seating is wonderful for dining ‘al fresco’. And another terrace overlooking the lovely heated pool with comfortable armchairs is ideal for the morning coffee or the afternoon aperitif.

The Villa is well secluded behind iron gates, high laurel hedges, cypress trees and horse chestnuts and yet is only three kilometres from the picturesque historic town of Sansepolcro, famous for its Piero della Francesca masterpieces (paintings and fresco's) and boasting a great selection of restaurants, bars and fine shopping. 

For those who simply love Italy, you really can’t get more ‘dolce vita’ than this.
