  The Detail...

Villa Gemma is a large and comfortable hillside villa located in the Italian countryside between Florence and Sienna.

It's hard to believe this place was once an abandoned stables, but with meticulous care it has been renovated and restored by its new owners into a splendid country house, full of warmth and charm.

The house is surrounded by well-cared for gardens, which give the property privacy and seclusion. There are fabulous views of the surrounding countryside to be had from the recently built swimming pool - the perfect cool escape from the heat of the summer sun after you've been relaxing on the poolside loungers.

On the terrace above the pool you can enjoy a drink or lie in the hammock. Underneath the terrace is the sauna, along with changing rooms and bathroom facilities.

Inside, the house is spacious and furnished with plenty of traditional Tuscan pieces, which blend well with the antique cotto floors and the beautiful wooden ceiling beams. As in all traditional Italian homes, the big kitchen is the heart of the house, the place for family and friends to gather and enjoy delicious Tuscan dishes, which can be cooked for you on request. The kitchen is excellently equipped and includes dishwasher, stove, double American style fridge and has a lovely fireplace.

The lounge really shows the care and attention that has gone into this restoration. Modern comfort meets traditional techniques in the fireplace, with its great stone mantle, the stairs and window fittings in carved pietre serena and the decorated walls. Above the lounge is a studio space with divans which can be turned into two comfortable beds.

Up the old stone staircase to the first floor you'll find three bedrooms, one single and two doubles, all with beautiful wooden floors. The en-suite master is on a mezzanine level and has its own spacious terrace which overlooks the gardens and pool. The three bathrooms are sleek, modern and feature high-tech hydromassage showers.

The villa is conveniently situated about 3kms from the town of Poggibonsi, which has a variety of shops, restaurants and a railway station. The world famous cities of Sienna and Florence are 25km and 45km respectively.
