Holidaying in an Italian villa in the countryside is about feeling like philosophers, holding a glass of nice red Chianti wine while immersing in this surprisingly soothing culture: this is a land for questions rather than answers, a special place to restart whatever needs, a land that celebrates great company, amazing food and great alfresco areas for long, happy evenings. Renting a villa in this area is of course about the surrounding landscape, while vegetable gardens all around will be the main resource for tomatoes, basil, herbs and fresh fruit.
Carmelina is in the countryside, featuring 200 square meters of living space and great exteriors, is a perfect sample of the countryside life in this particular area: everything is green, the exterior area is scented like flowers blossoming in spring and the entire experience it is quintessentially Italian. The interior living areas are found on the ground floor of the main villa and open out on the the gardens and magnificent views. The three master bedrooms are on the upper floors on the main villa and a 4th bedroom, suitable for teenagers is located in a separate guest cottage.
The pleasure of silence, the enchanting surroundings, the possibility to hire a cooking mamma to prepare a simple Insalata di Farro (split-bean salad) with some fresh tomatoes from the back garden, the proximity to a number of small villages with restaurants, bread shops, organic markets, artisans shops, hidden little churches and monuments, not to mention proximity to the best beach resorts of the Versilia Coast and iconic cities like Florence or Pisa are all part of the best package and experience a villa traveler would want.
