A couple of new villa image updates

The following villas have some new images to please your eyes.

Borgo del Prete:

In the Colle Val D’Elsa valley, between Siena and San Gimignano, one of the most natural, unspoilt areas of central Tuscany, this beautifully restored farmhouse is known for it’s genuine ambiance, authentic food and for it’s relaxing and peaceful setting.

The borgo is made up of 14 separate and independent apartments, each different from each other, each with a working wood burning fire and full kitchen.

The rental is generally weekly, Saturday to Saturday, and includes daily breakfast. The facilities include a big pool, tennis court, gardens and mountain bike services.

Castello Orlando:

This castello – a fortified villa built in the XV century – was built as both a fortress, and as a country house for relaxation.

Today the castello and grounds are rented for weddings. The rental is made up of the halls and courtyard of the castello itself, as well as the gardens, where a blessing may be held, as well as the wedding aperitif. The castle is also renown for the production of several top tuscan wines, as well as the castello’s own olive oil production, and a few weekly rented apertments.

During the summer months, we prefer to arrange evening receptions, and the spaces are ideal for 50 to 150 guests, in the spacious central courtyard. There is also plenty of internal space for parties, should the weather make this necessary.

There are also the spacious lawns outside of the castello walls, where the aperitifs may be served. One of the most charming aspects of this medieval location in the integrity of the spaces – not much has changed here over the centuries, and when the evening sun sets, and the castle walls are lit up by dozens of oil burning torches, the setting is truly evocative of the midde ages.
