Verdant Val d’Orcia estate

Sleeps

10

With views of the sprawling, Unesco-listed Val d’Orcia, five-bedroom former farmhouse Villa Biondi has all the trappings of a classic, Tuscan stay: rustic wooden furniture, beamed ceilings, polished-tile floors and rough, exposed-stone walls. Comfort and style go hand in hand at this elegant, Ferragamo-founded casa – the beds are marshmallow-soft and the alfresco sofas and armchairs are temptingly squashy, ideal for alfresco lazing in the tree-lined, lavender-scented garden. Mix up an Aperol spritz in the chrome-accented kitchen, and settle yourself on a padded, pergola-shaded sunlounger by the pool to watch the sun set on magical Montalcino.

First Glance

  • The largest villa on the estate, 726sq m Villa Biondi is set over two floors, plus a 33sq m poolhouse. The decor is traditionally Tuscan, with a nod to modern style evident in the sleek kitchen and heated pool.
  • On the ground floor in the main house is the living room, which has a beamed ceiling, tiled floor and working fireplace, around which are grouped several sofas and red-patterned armchairs. A wooden coffee table stacked with books and magazines sits in the centre of the room.
  • Next door to the living room is the dining room, which is decorated in shades of cream and has a long table surrounded with ample seating.
  • Through the dining room’s double doors, the kitchen has a range cooker (with a red-and-white-tiled splashback) and polished, wooden cabinets. High-quality cookware, cutlery and crockery are supplied. There’s also a microwave, dishwasher, sink, washing machine, kettle, grill and Nespresso coffee-maker.
  • There are also two powder rooms on the ground floor, plus a cosy reading room with sofas and armchairs, lined with bookcases.
  • In the bright and airy poolhouse, there’s a kitchenette and another bathroom with a shower and Ferragamo bath products.
  • The Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco hotel is closed between 27 November and 12 April. Villas rented during this period will have a delivery of welcome groceries; two hours’ daily housekeeping; breakfast cooked in the villa (on request and for an extra charge); concierge service between 9am and 5pm; free newspaper app for Android and Apple devices; free WiFi and 24-hour security.

Sleeping arrangements

  • All five of the bedrooms are located in the main house. All have ensuite bathrooms, and all (with the exception of the twin bedroom on the ground floor, which only has a shower) have a shower, a bath tub and Ferragamo bath products.
  • The ground-floor double bedroom has antique wooden furniture, and a king-size bed dressed in white linens. Large French windows open out onto a terrace.
  • Also on the ground floor is a twin bedroom, which has two single beds, both dressed in white linens and with green-checked headboards. Striped footstools and leaf-patterned chairs give the impression of warmth and cosiness.
  • The master bedroom (on the first floor) has a king-size, four-poster bed dressed in red-chintz linens with a loveseat at its foot. Antique wooden furniture is dotted around the room, and there’s also a walk-in wardrobe.
  • The double bedroom on the first floor has a king-size, four-poster bed draped in yellow hangings. A tartan chaise-longue sits in one corner, and striped chairs are arranged around a wooden table in another. This room also has a walk-in wardrobe.
  • The second twin bedroom (on the first floor) has two extra-wide, four-poster single beds, both dressed in yellow linens with red-and-white-striped headboards. Blue-velvet armchairs sit beside a wooden coffee-table in front of the beds.
