Villa Le Fonti
Luxury villa with six letting bedrooms an five
bathrooms, can accommodate 12 (+4) people. Relaxing Swimming pool in
the garden.A Tuscan construction family
from Arezzo built the beautiful Villa of approx 800m2 during the later
part of the 18th century. The Name 'Le Fonti' comes from the area very
rich in underground springs, which was used for drinking, irrigation
and for the animals. Even today there exists an underground spring
which water pours. During the years the Villa has had several
different owners before being acquired by the current owners the
Parigi family, who began its complete restoration. A process that
required years of work which rendered the Villa with all the modern
comforts, yet at the same time, by way of a methodical
research, has maintained its original state including traditional
timber girders ceilings and handmade terracotta floor tiles, and hand
painted walls, with typical Italian gardens. Villa Le Fonti is
surrounded by 15000 m2 of gardens with a 12m
x 6 meters swimming pool and is
an ideal place to holiday in the heart of Tuscany.
