The perfect blend of tradition and modernity in a stunning rural property of sleek design
Villa Vergelle is a modern, contemporary villa that was built under Special Umbria management in 2012 and got a total refurbishment in 2023.
Located in Val d’Orcia, a Unesco world heritage site in Tuscany, the property is close to the beautiful Renaissance towns of Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. The villa is unique, with a warm brick exterior and an industrial, minimal yet welcoming interior.
The design details draw inspiration from far and wide and the complementary textures and finishes include concrete floors, Tadelakt bathrooms, a modern kitchen handcrafted in reclaimed wood, iron joists and large windows and doors. The simple layout creates an easy flow through the property and an indoor-outdoor ethos that is perfect for holiday living.
The villa sits in the middle of a large, mature garden framed by tall cypress trees and old oaks and pines. The heated 12mx6m pool with termic child friendly automatic cover is on a terrace just below the house, surrounded by designer pool furniture.
Villa Vergelle has 5 en-suite bedrooms: four doubles and a beautiful bunk room that sleeps two in an original handcrafted wooden structure.
The 100sqm living space on the ground floor has double doors to the garden at either end and includes a central, high-spec kitchen handcrafted in old wood, a double-sided fireplace through to the large dining area on one side, and a spacious sitting room at the other end.
Villa Vergelle is a byword for cool luxury. The owner, together with Specialumbria, has condensed all the best bits of a holiday house into this beautiful property.
