Profile

Villa Roncovisi is a luxury eighteenth century Tuscan villa with exclusive pool, the ideal accommodation for family and group vacation (for 15/19 people)."Love of Tuscany and its traditions, care of details, a refined but family atmosphere, fidelity to the authentic style, the art of welcoming to and living in Tuscany... all this is Villa Roncovisi".

Villa Roncovisi is a typical historical Tuscan villa with exclusive swimming pool.This independent villa, built in the second half of the 18th century, is the centre of a property of over 18 acres of woods and olive groves. It is on the last western slopes of Mount Albano, approximately 250mt. above sea level. Originally it was composed of two farm houses which have been joined together (maintaining however a certain independence if required). The owners have carried out an accurate and rigorous renovation using only materials recovered from the surrounding area and period while ensuring a structure which respects the norms of bio-architecture. The living areas have been renovated with a careful eye for details - antique furniture and ornaments, antique doors, prints, paintings and Persian carpets. On the other hand the house has every possible modern comfort.

In this uncontaminated and tranquil spot you can spend unforgetable moments of relax which will make your stay in Italy a unique and original experience, in perfect Tuscan style. For those who are searching for the real spirit and essence of Tuscany and who appreciate the antique flavour of a special refuge surrounded by nature; for those needing a centralized base from which to visit the natural and artistic beauties of the region.

Surrounded by 18 acres of olive groves, it is ideal for your visit to the most famous Tuscan art cities and as a refuge in which to relax. The villa is surrounded by a 3,000 square metre garden, where on the lower level, there is the swimming pool, overflow and equipped with hydromassage. On the upper level a bar-b-que and a pergola for outdoor eating.Thanks to the wide variety of photos of villa, the garden and the swimming pool (villa gallery), you can get a good idea of this exclusive and luxury villa resort in the green countryside of Tuscany, not far from Lucca, Pistoia, Pisa, Volterra, Siena, San Gimignano, the beach of Versilia and Le Cinque Terre and the fashion conscious town of Montecatini Terme.

For more than thirty years the owners have cultivated their passion for antiques and have furnished the villa with pieces acquired from antique dealers, auction sales or antique fairs. Some of the more particular pieces are the beautiful doors of the walk-in wardrobes in two of the bedrooms, the wooden 17th century plaque from a Florentine convent above the door of the larger loungeroom. Two of the bedrooms have Empire wardrobes and chests of drawers.

The owners' taste is eclectic and includes some pieces of Liberty period furniture, for example, the French mirror in the green bathroom and the Sicilian chest of drawers in the yellow bedroom. There are two chairs and a table from Puccini's villa at Torre del Lago, as well as a late Empire sideboard of Calabrese origin.

There are many antique prints on the walls, including geographical maps of various countries, and in some of the bedrooms and lounge rooms there are chests of the C16th and C17th. Another remarkable piece is the billiard table, dating back to the early nineteen hundreds - in perfect condition. Many other pieces, more or less important, have all been chosen in the spirit of tracing our roots back to the past. Also in the garden one can find marble or stone capitals as well as old terrracotta Tuscan vases.
