  The Accomodations

Villa Bernardi is a beautiful, spacious Tuscan casa colonica (farm house); it is suitable for 10 people and has been planned for family gatherings or parties of friends. It offers over 420 m² (4,400 ft²) of living space which meanders over 4 levels. The original farm dates back to 1085. Since 1988 Villa Bernardi has been remodelled twice; the first remodeling brought the property out of a ruin state, while the second made it rental ready. The house is designed not to feel like a rental property, but like a gracious vineyard residence. The estate is often photographed and is featured on posters and postcards; pictures and paintings of the property adorn the walls of several businesses and a Florentine restaurant.

The structure is constructed in a traditional rustic Tuscan style: white-washed or stone walls, wood beamed ceilings and terracotta tiled floors. The interior is pure luxury and comfort; the home has many large windows and doors, ensuring an abundance of natural light. There is a large gourmet kitchen/dining room with separate "work kitchen", a spacious living room, a parlor and a gym as well as 5 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (3 of which are en-suite) and a "guest" WC off the kitchen. The bedrooms are situated in such a way that each guest has a bit of privacy. Each bedroom is outfitted with a ceiling fan and the windows are screened. There are multiple terraces, each of which has its own unique and magnificent view. The villa has a private 15 meter swimming pool, where one can relax in a tranquil atmosphere while enjoying the surrounding landscape.
