Independent villa | Private pool | Maid included |

Overview

A splendid 16th century stone farmhouse, Tizzano crowns a hilltop in western Chianti and gazes over its 300 hectares/750 acres of gardens, vineyards, woods and olive groves. The country retreat of an aristocratic Italian family for many generations, it has the patina of centuries of love and care. Antiques, objets d’art, comfortable sofas and shelves filled with books set the tone for the three sitting areas, one with vaulted ceilings, which provide plenty of quiet reading corners as well as space for the whole party to gather. There is a choice of eating areas, too: a formal dining room with a beautiful old terracotta floor, a vine-covered pergola for long lunches and warm evenings, and a loggia with a barbeque and fireplace or chillier times. The villa’s old world charm has been retained in the remodelled kitchen and bathrooms, and is echoed in a new and luxurious self-sufficient pool house, dubbed ‘The Lemon House’. A large independent suite over two floors can be accessed from the main villa or through an independent entrance. Facing south and across the Tuscan hills, the gardens include extensive lawns, a large swimming pool, several sitting areas and even a play area for children.

Clients reviews

The views from this villa are nothing short of spectacular! The furnishings and beds are wonderful. Anita and Guido are amazing. Our daughter ended up in the hospital and they couldn't have been more helpful or caring. Make sure you take a walk through the vineyards and visit the winery. Barberina Val D' Elsa is a beautiful little town. We stayed for 3 weeks, 2 with family and 1 with friends and hope to return again. I would recommend this to anyone. There are not enough words to describe what a wonderful experience this was for everyone.

Tizzano had old world Tuscan charm. It was just right for a family holiday (ages 3 - 65+) giving space for fun and games, rest and relaxation. We would go back there.

A lovely week in Tuscany - great pool. A few recommendations we tried: L`antica Quercia the potato ravioli with rabbit sauce La sosta dell Papa Greta place to eat the pasta was super. The cinghiale in umido ( wild boar stew) is fantastic Chiribiri in San Gimignano is a great place to eat as it is open all day. L`Antica Scuderia is also lovely - more expensive but a great find. You may see the gorgeous kittens, our 6 year old named them Meg & Moy. They are so sweet and playful. We left some food for them, hope you will be happy feeding them morning and night as they are always hungry.

The view from the villa and grounds was beautiful! The villa was large enough to accommodate all ten of us. We were close to town for shopping as well as towns and villages we wanted to visit in the area. The owner, Guido, visited and was very friendly, and took the time to tell us some of the wonderful history of the property. Then he took us on a tour of his wine cellars and we had a marvellous wine tasting afterward. D.Daggett 2011

Tizzano was perfect for our family celebrations everyone young and old, enjoyed the house and the area. The Lemon-house was great for lazy evening dinners and the pool had the kids busy for hours. We wish we could stay and take in the view of San Gimignano for a few more days, or forever. Sad to leave but our memories of Tizzano will last forever.

I loved this house. Tuscany is a beautiful place I am grateful to be able to spend time with my family in such an old beautiful house. This place is so amazing! Its so cool and so much fun1 Oh I forgot beautiful!! The pool was my favourite not only for swimming but to sit around and enjoy the beautiful views this place is just awesome. Its great that someone used to live in it as a family and all the stuff that's in it is theirs.

all three families enjoyed a wonderful week in your beautiful home, the lovely landscape and quiet a few bottles of the local Chianti. The people in the village of Barberino were extremely welcoming giving us a wonderful impression for our first visit ( but not our last ) to Italy. We chose well and were very happy with the villa. Thank you for your hospitality.
