PROPERTY DESCRIPTION

Villa Glicine is an outstanding estate newly restored and reopened that features two beautifully renovated 17th-century structures: the main house and the granary. Both villas are characterized by incredible wooden-beamed ceilings, beautiful stone walls and warming wood and terracotta floors. The furnishings celebrate relaxation in splendor with opulent chandeliers, vintage ivory-hued furniture and plush, deep sofas. This property represents the barefoot luxury of Italian country living and it’s the ideal home base for families, groups, and romantic escapists looking for a private retreat into the Tuscan countryside. Tucked into the south side of a forested hill called Cambolli, guests at Villa Glicine enjoy an abundance of sunlight all day long, perfect for relaxing in the serene crystal waters of our heated outdoor swimming pool. Both buildings feature comfortable master and junior suites with king-size beds, and the convivial living rooms where welcoming world-weary travelers to kick up their feet and relax into the dolce far niente—the Italian art of doing nothing. Food and wine connoisseurs will delight in the custom Tuscan kitchen in the main house where delicious Italian meals and lively conversation take place around a large farm table. There are two pergola-covered dining areas with one featuring an outdoor stone kitchen including a professional grill. The other is a fairytale, wisteria-draped space that oozes romance and includes a 14-seat travertine table. Our multiple al fresco dining areas are irresistible in the warmer months, inviting guests to enjoy a cocktail hour spritz or a summer barbeque under the stars.
