La Badiole sits on a picture perfect hilltop enjoying stunning views of the rolling hills with Montepulciano against the skyline. This very comfortable private home has a beautifully kept terraced garden with extensive lawns and flower beds with large cypress trees offering total privacy. The old farmhouse was restored ten years ago by its present owners and was converted into a charming home with plentiful living space furnished very tastefully throughout with a blend of antiques and contemporary furniture. There is a very well equipped kitchen for pro cooks, an air-conditioned study/TV room and outside the kitchen is a large arched loggia, with a lounge area and a dining area with a bread oven and barbecue. The flood lit, air-conditioned bedrooms are spacious with high ceilings, modern ensuite bathrooms. The swimming pool is set on a lawned terrace, below the old farmhouse with views of the Valdichiana and of Valiano and Montepulciano. A shop and restaurant are at Valiano, just 3 km away, and at just 2.2 km there is a second charming village, Petrignano, which hosts a well-stocked mini-market. Both walkable of course depending on what you might have intention of bringing back with you! This is a great home that both families and groups can relax in and visit Tuscany.
