   VILLA MONTESASSI - COU-B04-38

This stone farmhouse is located about midway between the villages of San Donato in Poggio (approx. 7 km.) and Panzano, in the heart of the Chianti region. Close to both Siena and Florence (approx. 35-minute drive), as well as to San Gimignano and other interesting places to discover in the Chianti district, it is an excellent base for excursions in the area. San Donato has a good gourmet food shop and bakery, restaurants, cafes, a pharmacy and a post-office. Panzano is the home a Italy’s most famous butcher and a couple of great restaurants. Less than a kilometer of unpaved road separates the house from the hamlet of La Piazza where there is a lovely country trattoria.
DESCRIPTION ¬
The home is laid out on various levels.

The lowest level consists of:
a formal dining room (table for 12 or more) with a working fireplace
up 5 steps a smaller dining room (table for 8)
kitchen (with table for 6, dishwasher, microwave oven, stove, fridge etc.).
Five steps lead up from the kitchen to a ground level, outdoor patio dining area.

Fourteen steps lead up to the next floor of the home which consists of:
a large living room
two sitting rooms (each with fireplace)
a study
a double bedroom (two steps down, with an ensuite bathroom tub/hand shower).
As the home is built on a gentle slope, this floor also has outdoor access through a number of doorways.

Fifteen more steps lead to the top floor which is dedicated to bedrooms. This floor consists of:
a twin (or double) bedroom with ensuite bathroom (half tub/shower)
a double bedroom and a twin bedroom that share an ensuite bathroom (tub)

The house is furnished with a cozy combination of antiques and quality country-style pieces. The bedrooms have screens and air conditioning. There are terra cotta floors and wood-beam or brick-vault ceilings, many of which are original. Additional amenities include a stereo, television, washing machine and maid service.
