Cosy, comfortable and with true rustic beauty, Villa Alba is a wonderful retreat, ideal for a family of four with visiting guests, or a small group of friends.
Perched on top of a peaceful hillside, looking out over the Val d’Orcia natural park, the stone farmhouse has been lovingly restored to create a luxury Tuscan villa you’ll feel right at home in within seconds of arrival.
For food-lovers, the open-plan country kitchen is a lovely space in which to potter, throwing together fabulous local ingredients and fresh vegetables and herbs from the estate’s own kitchen garden. Alternatively, sit back and let a private chef do the work while you open a few bottles of local wine. In the cosy sitting room, comfy sofas are gathered around a stone fireplace and flatscreen TV.
The two beautifully designed bedrooms are decked out in Italian country style, with pretty stripes and checks bringing the neutral backdrop to life.
The jewel in this luxury villa’s crown, however, is outside. A striking infinity pool is the perfect spot to relax with a book and a picnic for the whole day if you like. And up by the house, a pergola shades the al fresco living and dining areas, making outdoor living the order of the day.
And while you feel as though you are in the middle of nowhere here, you’re only ever a stroll away from the ‘borgo’ of the Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco estate, on which the villa is located, with its restaurants, sauna, steam room and experienced staff to ensure you want for nothing during your stay here.
