Rental villas in Tuscany with private pools

Property search







Advanced search

With its panoramic pool a short distance below the main house, Podere Le Mandrie sits high to enjoy its gardens and a wide Tuscan sky.

A large farmhouse in the wooded outskirts of the Crete Senese has undergone a luxurious transformation and here visitors are surrounded by the bounty of the land yet enjoy great comfort and the beauty of a tastefully designed home. With discreet staff on hand Monday - Friday mornings, this is a house that will pamper you, yet leave you to enjoy the natural splendour of a Tuscan hilltop.
