On the ground floor what used to be the ox's barn has been converted into a large summer room leading out to the garden. Seven windows flood the room with light, the mangers have been turned into cushioned seats. An open fireplace, comfortable sofas and armchairs make this room pleasantly informal and comfortable. A double room with an en-suite bathroom opens out directly onto the garden and has been adapted for wheel-chair use.
A spiral Renaissance-style travertine staircase leads to the upper floor. Here a stunning central living room with windows looking out on both sides and a traditional fireplace leads into a large Tuscan kitchen with an old beam and a local travertine hood running along one wall. A waist-high fireplace is a local feature which makes it easy to cook over the fire. All bedrooms have their own bathroom.
The garden has been designed to blend in naturally with the surroundings. Climbing roses, hydrangea petiolaris, lavender, cystus, rosemary and honeysuckle mix well with the old oak and fruit trees. Meals can be taken under a pergola covered by wisteria, roses and grapevines. A 10 by 5 meter pool is tucked away at the far end of the garden.
A small house, which used to be the pig pen, hen house and ox barn, Casa del Bove, is now a charming and cosy loft with old tie beams and a large fireplace. It is rented together with Sassaia to ensure the pool's exclusive use.
