Villa Barberino dates back to the 1700/1800s and is immersed in a partially natural garden, since part of it has been designed by the property owner, a landscape architect. The original construction has been maintained with its antique stone walls but inside, modern comfort is united to the antique atmosphere.
In the magnificent landscape with its many views, the owner imagined and conceived the infinity pool (17 x 6 meter and 1 to 2,20 meter deep), inserted amongst the hillsides and their vineyards overlooking an endless horizon and framed by a panorama of incomparable beauty.
Even though the property is very close to the town of Barberino Val d’Elsa, it preserves its absolute privacy thanks to the 15 hectares of olive trees (property of the owner for production of extra-virgin olive oil) that stand between the town and the property. In addition, the villa is located halfway between Florence and Siena (the bus stop for Florence city center is 200m away from the villa). Inside the property area there is a small vineyard, fruit trees and a garden from which there is a breathtaking view.
On one side the endless valley with vineyards and olive trees and on the other side, watching over the Villa, the medieval village with its bell tower and houses that light up during the evening and make it look like a living brethren. The private garden is completed by a barbecue and children plays area.
There is also another playground, well kept and equipped, and a bike rental just a few steps away from the entrance of the villa. For sportspeople, a cycling lane unites Barberino Val d’Elsa to Tavarnelle Val di Pesa.
