Villa il Frantoio is an old recently restored farmhouse, situated in a panoramic position in the classic Tuscan landscape of the Valdinievole. The latter is an area not much frequented by mass tourism which has all the natural and artistic features of the whole Tuscany: olive trees, cypresses, mixed forests...
The origins of the villa date back to 1700, as reported in the first land registry maps. The property was part of a little village with annexed houses. The small settlement (of about 10 hectares) consists of the main farmhouse, a dependance and an old farmer's house which is not currently used.
Thanks to a careful restoration, aimed at preserving the original features, Villa il Frantoio has become the ideal place for those who wish to spend a lovely holiday, surrounded by nature, without sacrificing modern amenities, at an absolutely competitive price.
The property also has a raised area (of about 60 steps) with rooftop pool (6 x 12 m x 1.5 depth) and hydromassage. It is completely self-sufficient and ecological as regards consumption: the electricity is supplied by a photovoltaic system which presses olives and transforms them into biomass. The mill is powered by geothermal energy.
The villa is made up of the old farmhouse which is on 2 floors, internally furnished with a wise combination of materials such as cotto and stone with pleasant finishes that give it a modern look.
From the small driveway in front of the house you will reach directly the main hall of the house, divided into a living room with fireplace, a reading corner with fireplace and a beautiful dining room with a large fireplace.
A few steps lead to the fully equipped kitchen and a service bathroom. A beautiful cotto staircase (wide and not steep) leads to the first floor, which consists of: 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with tub; 2 divisible double bedrooms with extra bed and en-suite bathroom with hydromassage shower and lastly 1 double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with hydromassage shower too. All rooms have air conditioning.
Villa Il Frantoio is a really lovely place for its renewed aesthetics and its privacy, that allows you to enjoy the environment and the landscape with maximum comfort: pool, air conditioning, hydromassage and so on. Although Monsummano city centre is a few kilometers away, the accessibility is good.
