This restructured modern, contemporary villa, although not in Umbria, but in the beautiful Tuscany, was restored under own management of Special Umbria and completed in July 2012.
In one of the most special areas in Tuscany, the Val d'Orcia, near Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano, the owners created something unique, which you will hardly find anywhere in Tuscany. In the middle of the famous Tuscan countryside this wonderful villa is traditional from the outside and modern and industrial from the inside. For instance, floors in concrete, ceilings and pilasters in iron, beautiful kitchen, modern in old wood and bathrooms in Moroccan Tadelakt.
The villa is surrounded by a large garden with enormous cipresses and old oak and pine trees. In the middle of the garden is a pool of 6 x 12 meters positioned with high quality garden and pool furniture.
Villa Vergelle has 3 bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms: 2 double bedrooms and one very original modern bunk bed which is not only for children, but also for adults this can be great fun. This bed is spacious with 2 meter large mattresses.
The living area is around 100 m2 with open cooking area, very large dining/working table and sitting room.
This villa is luxury in all senses. The owners thought about everything to make your holiday a special event to not forget.
Villa Vergelle is under Exclusive SpecialUmbria Property Management.
Villa Vergelle has been publicated (cover) in the Magazine Country Living in October 2014, Bo Bedre (April 2014), Mad & Bolig (September 2014), DentroCASA (may 2016), El País Semanal (May 2017) and Casamia (september 2017).

- What our clients say
September 2018, Christian W., Germany: 'Again and again we think of our wonderful time at Villa Vergelle. We had really wonderful holidays and an unforgettable time spent there. Everyone, my wife and I and especially the two children, really enjoyed it to the fullest. Every momentStarting with the professional preparation and support via the internet through you, dear Tamara, up to the very warmhearted support by Francesca. We were in good hands from the beginning and felt well.The area, the landscape and above all the character of the house have left a lasting impression on us. Today we still look at photos of the villa every day and indulge in unforgettable memories. Honestly, we would all like to come back tomorrow and spend time there again.We really felt well from the beginning, actually at home ... We have recovered well. And hope that this will continue for a long time.'
July 2018: Karin B.:What more could you ask for: to wake up by at the first ray of light and smelling the scent of lavender, in the heart of Tuscany.Situated in the dreamy landscape of the Montalcino area this charming villa radiates pure Italianita. Perfectly suited to our needs of two families with a total of four kids. The villa has a large dining table and a fully designed kitchen accompanied by a living area on ground floor. On the upper floor there are a master bedroom, a kids bedroom with bunk bed and a second, smaller master bedroom. All bedrooms have bathrooms with showers, toilets and sinks. Thanks to the cupboards in all rooms we could stow away all of our clothes. The villas surroundings with the pool (of course) and the lounge area (after dinner) were the places that struck us most: especially watching the milky way in this remote location is a rare pleasure for us city dwellers…All the administrative handling (pre-holiday), booking and getting the needed information was done professionally - also the aftermath was hassle-free and when the rental company, Special Umbria, asked us for a review we were happy to write these few sentences for them and future guests.The love of detail, the materialisation of the interior spaces and a well balanced mixture of traditional Tuscany and contemporary style are the essence of this beautiful villa. Vergelle, see you next year…

June 2018, Markus L.:
Thank you very much for the perfect service.
We enjoyed our stay at Villa Vergelle very much. It is a very nice and clean villa with perfect reduced but warm-hearted design. You have to feel well and relaxed there. The surrounding is a natural beauty which we enjoyed every morning looking out the window or chilling at the pool.
May 2018, Alex F.
We are back from Villa Vergelle - many thanks for the great house and the wonderful week! We all enjoyed it very much. Italy at its best!
May 2018, Brigitte H.We had a wonderful time in Italy and we enjoyed staying at Villa Vergelle.The house is very practical and comfortable built and as the weather was nice too we could also enjoy the wonderful pool. The directions to the villa and also the map with all the instructions and suggestions are really helpful. Elisa is very friendly and it is practical to have a restaurant with a good italian kitchen, close by.
October 2016, Miriam K.
We had a faboulous time at Villa Vergelle. The house and the surroundings were even more beautiful than we expected from the pictures – and our expectations were high. Unfortunately the weather was unexpectedly cold during our stay, so we couldn’t use the pool. But on the other hand this gave us more time to explore Siena, Pienza and many other wonderful sites. We had a fantastic dinner prepared by Chef Angelo, it was just great to be spoilt by his cooking skills – to be highly recommended!
Though last not least a big thank you to your Agency: Your support with booking, payments i.e. was highly professional. Thank you also for your always quick answers to all the questions I had, as silly they might have been...
July 2017, Bob D.
We had a tremendous time during our stay at Villa Vergelle. The villa was light filled and airy, the rooms very comfortable, the two patios made sitting outside at any time of the day or evening perfect. And of course the pool was fantastic – large, clean and very refreshing. Lastly, we cannot say enough good things about Elisa, the villa’s caretaker, and the restaurant that she and her mom run a couple of hundred yards down the road. It was a great stay and on our short list of places to come back to in the years to come.
