Vista Monte Amiata ia part of large, recently built country house close to Lake Trasimeno. The property looks out towards Montepulciano and the hills beyond, and is built in a traditional style, with modern design.
The heated pool (12 x 6 metres is shared with another unit for 6 people.
On the other side of the property there is another holiday accommodation, which is occasionally used by the owner, but in no way interferes with the privacy of your holiday home.
Both the exterior and the interior offer an appealing mix of old and new. The traditional cotto floors and beamed ceilings are mixed with vibrant design classics such as the yellow Gispen chairs in the living area and the Eames-style dining chairs. Antiques, industrial lighting and zings of colour add oodles of style, while the kitchen is expertly equipped with a large Smeg oven and fridge.
The villa sleeps six in three bedrooms and is ideal for a family or group of friends. It has its own big, private garden and a large, wraparound roof terrace with a dining area, plenty of space to relax and dreamy views to match.
There are three double bedrooms: the one on the ground floor is en suite while the two first-floor bedrooms share a spacious shower room.
Both shower rooms have high-performance fixtures and fittings, complemented by mirrors and sink consoles made from reclaimed wood.
The spacious loft kitchen, with reclaimed wood cupboard doors and a marble worktop, is part of the large, open-plan living area. Expertly equipped, there is a Smeg oven with five-burner gas hob, a dishwasher and a stand-alone Smeg fridge-freezer. With ample workspace this is a kitchen guests will be happy to linger in.
At one end of the open-plan loft space, with its traditional cotto floor and whitewashed beamed ceiling, is a large sitting area. A comfortable corner sofa and a couple of bright yellow Dutch Gispen chairs make for a cosy living space, with a modern wood-burning stove for cooler days. At the other end of the room is an old wooden farmhouse dining table with six Eames chairs, or guests can dine on the terrace looking out over the rolling countryside.
There is a separate utility room with a washing machine and tumble dryer.
