Restored from an ancient farmhouse (using the original Tuscan stone), six-bedroom Villa Oddi is a traditionally charming, centuries-old Italian casa, with added modern touches like a slick, steel kitchen and private infinity pool. Vaulted brick ceilings, wooden beams and flagstone floors are offset by comfortable, modern touches: cosy up in the TV room in front of the 82-inch screen; whip up an antipasti feast in the slick kitchen; and gaze over panoramic views of the Val d’Orcia from the private infinity pool. On warm evenings, have a lazy game of tennis on your own court, then pop a few pizzas in the outdoor, wood-firing oven and stretch out on the pergola-shaded terrace. To cap it all, a cypress-lined road leads to the village of Borgo, a historic rural enclave, authentically restored by the hotel Rosewood Castiglion del Bosco; the cobbled streets are dotted with restaurants, a fitness centre, a spa and a cookery school.

First Glance

  • This traditional, six-bedroom villa (466sq m) is spread over two floors; the expansive grounds include a private pool, a tennis court and panoramic views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
  • On the ground floor, the impressive dining room has a vaulted brick ceiling, a large wooden dining table and chairs. At one end, modern wooden furniture and slate-grey sofas and armchairs are grouped together around a coffee table. Arch windows let in lots of natural light.
  • Also on the ground floor is a TV room: there’s an 82-inch screen with Apple TV and a Playstation 4. The room has white sofas dotted with caramel-brown cushions and modern art on the walls. Large windows and a high, beamed ceiling makes the space feel light and airy.
  • The living room has wood-panelled walls, a working fireplace and cosy armchairs; a large sofa and a chaise longue are grouped around the fire, which has bookcases filled with novels at either end.
  • The kitchen has a flagstone floor and a large wooden island with bar stools to perch on. Everything you need to prepare a Tuscan feast is included: a steel cooker and grill, matching pots and pans, a microwave, crockery and cutlery. The kitchen also has a washing machine and a Nespresso coffee machine.
