+ Description


Villa Elena is a wonderful villa for a group of 12 people, strategically located to explore the Chianti Area and the main cities and sites in Tuscany.

For shopping lovers the area offers a wide selection of outlets with all the well-known Italian brands. Upon request the property owners will happily assist you in organizing the best tours of the area (cultural and tourism tours, wine tours, shopping tours...).

The Villa is set on the top of a sunny hill where the garden extends down into pretty olive groves and orchards of a wide variety of fruit trees. From this vantage point guests are able to fully appreciate the wonderful surroundings, rolling hills encompassing the local town, which is just 1km away and has a variety of shops for your basic needs, a supermarket, restaurants and bars.

Located close to the house there is the attractive swimming pool (4x8m) and solarium- a real oasis of peace, furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas. The garden also boasts two terraces, to the front and rear of the house, there is a barbecue and traditional working pizza oven here along with dining furniture making these ideal spots for al fresco meals or just a romantic drink watching the sunset.



The architect owner personally took care of the renovation paying attention to every single detail.  Although respectful of the typical, Tuscan style, the Villa has acquired a feel of originality and elegance combined with all the comforts of modern life.

The ground floor features a very spacious living-dining room divided by red-brick archways into different areas: the entertainment area with sofas, satellite TV and DVD player, lounge with fireplace, reading room and formal dining area. From here one can access the garden terrace via French doors as well as go through to the kitchen. The spectacular kitchen is a really lovely room, very light and attractive but still homely. It is fully-fitted with a central island with 5 hobs, 2 ovens, microwave, dishwasher, American fridge and freezer etc. and also benefits from another large dining table, perfect for breakfast or more casual meals. Guests can also book a chef service in order to try delicious Tuscan specialties without even leaving the villa.

This level is completed by a convenient utility room and a guest bathroom with shower.

Upstairs guests will meet with a second lounge area, also with an open fireplace and satellite television as well as a small study with two computers, ADSL connection and sofa. 5 of the bedrooms are also found on this floor. Three double bedrooms each with their own bathroom and two twins which share a bathroom. Coordinating upholstery, wall colours and linen, unique to each room, give a soothing atmosphere and each room is fitted with air conditioning and internet connection.

The final twin bedroom is located in the second floor tower. With windows on all sides it is very light and also affords a 360 degree view. It shares a bathroom on the first floor landing.


Villa Elena is the ideal place for families or a large group of friends to spend a Tuscan holiday.

The most beautiful, well equipped villa; perfect size for ten people; fabulous kitchen; a terraced vegetable garden with pear, fig and plum trees at our disposal; 360 degree views sunrise and sunset; wonderful spotless pool and veranda; we enjoyed two home cooked meals with private chefs in the Tuscan tradition; comfortable, tasteful furniture inside and out; doors, shuttered windows and woodwork to die for; local art; spacious, new well-designed bathrooms in the local tradition... AND the marvelous Elena who lives across the driveway and is the architect of this dream family home. It is built with love and intelligence. Truly a Tuscan dream-come-true home and experience. Our entire family could not agree more. Grazie mille le due sorrelle Elena and Laura. We will certainly return.

Hemos pasado quince días en villa elena como en nuestra propia casa. La villa es, además de preciosa, muy cómoda. La ubicación es perfecta para moverte por la Toscana y hacer rutas en el mismo día. La casa está equipada con mucha categoría y la limpieza es excelente. Si alguien está pensando en alquilar una villa en la Toscana con esta seguro que acierta.

La villa è meravigliosa, sembra di vivere in un sogno!! Unico neo è molto grande e difficile da scaldare. Per un affitto numeroso è il top!

Staying at Villa Elena was the most wonderful experience. We were 10 people total. We were all comfortable and extremely happy. The villa is in a convenient location, with an amazing view. Elena and Laura, the owners, are the most fantastic people. I would go back just to visit them. One of the most magical vacations ever!!

Villa Elena and the owners Elena and Laura were excellent. The villa was in perfect shape and very tastefully decorated. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful. The dinners they prepared for us were the best we had. All in all it was a perfect place to base our vacation from.

My husband and I, along with 3 other couples, recently spent a week at Villa Elena. The villa was the perfect size for us and we were all very impressed with how beautiful it was inside and out! Our favorite room was the spacious kitchen where the 8 of us spent many evenings drinking wine and talking about our adventures of the day touring the area. Elena and Laura were a delight to deal with from the very first email to the last hug before we left. They answered any and all questions and helped us with directions. Be sure to have Laura and Sergio prepare a fabulous meal for you while you are there - what a treat!! We had everything that we needed and it was great that the store was only a short drive (or walk) away. We all would highly recommend this villa to anyone - it was a trip of a lifetime! C Rea

This is a truly perfect place to spend time in Toscana!! Elena and Laura are superb hosts, and the villa is exceptionally lovely and comfortable. Easy access to all the Tuscan sights and walkable to town, but so great to just hang out at home. We would HIGHLY recommend!!

Cara Signora valutare il nostro soggiorno é molto facile: grandi e piccoli siamo felici di esservi stati, peccato che sia durato poco! Per sessere più precisi: - felici di aver conosciuto Lei, Laura, ergio e il Suo simpatico papà, questo purtroppo solo per pochi minuti. - Complimenti per le strutture della casa, l'ordine, l'attenzione, il servizio - bravissime zia e nipote! - E per l'insieme della villa. Non credo che ci sia bisogno di dire di più e di quanto mio marito ha scritto sul libro degli ospiti. (che le invia saluti). E chissà un arrivederci, Cordialmente, Heloisa W. Conceição

What can we say. This is a secret paradise with a wonderful, professional family making sure it stays that way. The care and attention shown to us during our week here was wonderful. The pictures on the web show the villa is very beautiful but when you arrive it's jaw dropping. It's a little out of the way(everything within l hour though)but well worth it when you get back. Thankyou for everything! Can't wait to come back. The finlays and Bowles from Canada The Decarlos from Newyork The Mikkelsons from Australia
