Once the home of the Castiglion del Bosco’s olive press, Villa Oliviera would have been a central part of the estate… and it’s very much at its heart today. Just moments from the spa and wonderful restaurants at the ‘borgo’, this luxury villa in Tuscany is ideally located, striking the perfect balance between your own exclusive retreat but with the creature comforts of a 5* hotel on your doorstep.
Inside the traditional stone walls, a bright living room with traditional stone fireplace is a light and airy retreat to relax on a summer’s afternoon, and if the weather should turn cooler, a roaring fire will transform it instantly into a cosy nook, which could only be improved with good company. Warm evenings can be spent wining and dining outside on the spacious terrace, soaking in the countryside views as far as the eye can see.
A large, Tuscan-style kitchen will impress food fans who are keen to get to work experimenting with local produce from the estate, or for those who would prefer to be on the terrace with an aperitif and let dinner take care of itself, there’s plenty of room to hire a private chef to create a menu of Tuscan treats.
The icing on the cake of this luxury villa, however, must be the infinity pool in the garden, with panoramic views of the stunning surrounding countryside – it’s certainly a dip with a difference!
