Formerly the home of a Tuscan farming family, Villa Gauggiole’s design nods to its centuries-old heritage: beamed ceilings, rough-stone walls and tiled floors are relics of its humble beginnings. Founders Massimo and Chiara Ferragamo – inheritors of the luxury Italian shoe dynasty – have brought the villa up to date with modern fixtures and fittings, from the fully-kitted-out kitchen, to the heated infinity pool. On lazy days, settle in a tartan armchair by the living room fire, or stretch out on a padded sunlounger in the lavender-scented gardens. Spend evenings alfresco on one of the three pergola-shaded terraces, and admire the vineyard-populated views of Unesco-listed Val d’Orcia.
