Villa Virginia, an attractive property located among the hills of southern Tuscany just 6 kms from the sea, is an old drying kiln which was renovated between the end of the ‘90’s and the mid ‘00’s. The house was done up in such a way as to guarantee maximum comfort without giving up any of the typical characteristics of rural houses. It has terracotta floors in the living area and parquet in the sleeping area, exposed ceiling beams and a brick archway connecting the kitchen with the living room. Thanks to its location, guests have the possibility of visiting Pisa, Lucca, Grosseto and Siena, the characteristic villages of the Tuscan countryside like Bolgheri, Castagneto Carducci and Scansano and, in particular, the whole coast from Forte dei Marmi to Monte Argentario.
Villa Virginia has two floors. The main entrance on the ground floor leads directly into the living area. On the right of the corridor is the sitting room with fireplace and French windows which lead out on to one of the porticoes facing the garden. On the left is the kitchen-diner which also has access to the outside. The central corridor leads to the sleeping area which is composed of a double bedroom with outside access to a veranda, another double bedroom, a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) and two bathrooms with shower. From the ground floor sitting room stairs lead down to the basement room (the taverna), to a double bedroom and to a bathroom with shower.
Air conditioning in the living area and in the ground floor bedrooms
