In the center of the small hamlet of Scalvaia, 500 above sea level, The Trellis villa is a delightful newly restored house with private pool and garden.
Scalvaia is a small village with only 70 inhabitants right at the border between Siena and Grosseto province, just 10 minutes drive from San Galgano Abbey and only 35 kms from Siena. The region will appeal to nature-lovers as the woodlands, meadows and streams teem with bird and wildlife.
The house is 160 square meters and is surrounded by a green lawn. The garden around the house is completely fenced and parking space is provided inside the property through a gate. The 5 x 10 m swimming pool enjoys pockets of sun and shade as does the natural al fresco dining terrace. The house retains its rustic character and charm with beamed ceilings and antique tiles and the furnishings are nice and comfortable.
On the ground floor you can find a large living room with satellite TV, a double bedded room and the large new kitchen equipped with large fridge and freezer, dishwasher, cooker (4 rings) fireplace and satellite TV. French doors lead out to the pergola equipped with table and chairs for dining out and to the pool. Barbecue available.
Going up 8 steps you reach the first floor where you can find a bathroom with shower. 8 more steps lead to the upper floor where you can find 2 double bedded rooms, 2 single bedrooms and one large bathroom with bath/shower.
One single room has a lovely terrace with nice views.
In Scalvaia you can find a small grocery shop, a bar and a very good restaurant and pizzeria, all walking distance from the house. Close by the house there is a tennis court, not in use. Twice a year, by the tennis court, there is a the small village festival. A great occasion to eat typical Tuscan food and good local wine.
