Set on a hill in Italy’s wine-producing region of Chianti, luxury five-bedroom residence ​Villa La Cipresseta​ breathes fresh life into a former Tuscan farmhouse. The building retains its original Mediaeval stone walls, but within, the dark ages are well and truly gone thanks to a few glamorous crystal chandeliers in the rustic-chic rooms. Inside, the interiors have been lovingly restored to reflect the original Tuscan architecture – expect terracotta tiles and beamed ceilings. Enjoy barbecues on the terrace, lazy afternoons by the heated pool and restful nights in opulent antique bed heads – but don’t miss the chance to raise a glass to Chianti’s vineyards.
