There are neither words or photos that can describe this villa, so be prepared to be breathless when you enter the grounds. Luxurious, extravagant and elegant all pale against the real experience of Villa Isabella. This estate is in a borgo-type setting which consists of the villa with attached wings and sleeps twenty-five guests, along with a smaller stone guest house with three bedroom suites accommodating another six guests. If you need more space, it is possible to rent the owner's apartment for an additional four guests bringing the total to 35.

Completely private, it sits on a hilltop surrounded by 28 acres of beautiful gardens including a swimming pool, croquet lawn, tennis court, gardens, fully furnished terrace with retractable awnings that can accomodate 36 guests, a large pergola and hidden car park.
Dating back to the early 1400's, additional buildings were added to the main one in the 18th and 19th centuries and more recently in 1997, resulting in one of the most magnificent borgos ever created. The cluster of buildings centers on an original stone-paved courtyard.
Ideally located between Siena and Florence,this private Tuscan villa is the finest property we've come across. It is rare to find a villa of this size with such high standards. Fully air conditioned, elegantly appointed throughout, extensive grounds that include a tennis court, swimming pool, croquet lawn, sauna and large terraces, it effortlessly handles large groups and is ideal for weddings, family reunions and business meetings.
Everything you will need can be organized once you are here, from customized excursions such as sightseeing, wine tastings and escorted shopping to magnificent dinners with the owner's extensive wine list, high~speed boats and transfers to and from the airports. They can even arrange a fireworks display.
