With many of us smart-working while on vacation, finding a holiday property that offers both space and seclusion makes sense. ‘Villa Valle’ ticks all the boxes for luxury living, with ample space for large or extended families to all come together in the heart of Tuscany. A stylishly restored Tuscan villa with its very own lookout tower, ‘Villa Valle’ seamlessly combines historic architecture, sumptuous interiors, and contemporary high-end facilities. The perfect home-from-home experience, this private property provides all the modern amenities required for a stress-free Italian escape.

 

Located in Palaia, in the Province of Pisa, in the Italian region of Tuscany, Villa Valle is embraced by secluded, mature gardens and is considered by many a nature lover’s paradise. Ancient umbrella pines shade extensive lawns and lofty poplar and cypress trees, while ornamental borders exude the essence of Tuscany with their heady scent of lavender and rosemary. At ‘Villa Valle,’ leisurely days are focussed around al-fresco living, with its impressive swimming pool, Jacuzzi and sun lounge linking the grand villa with the smaller ‘hayloft’ cottage. An outdoor kitchen features a large BBQ, two fridges, a shaded pavilion, and a dining terrace.

Villa Valle’ sleeps up to 13 guests and features a beautifully restored Tuscan villa and its adjacent hayloft cottage, which offer the perfect setting for family and friends. The main villa provides abundant shared spaces for socializing yet with many more secluded areas for working, reading or simply relaxing.
