Fetching family farmhouse
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.
