Villa La Loggia comprises two luxurious apartments in a graceful tuscan country villa which can be rented as a single dwelling. Peacefully situated at the end of a private access track, just 700 metres from the delightful hilltop town of Montaione, Villa La Loggia offers an enviable degree of seclusion and the luxury of its own private swimming pool. The pool and the surrounding garden are very well kept and completely fenced-in.

Situated at the rear of the Villa, the pool offers privacy and wonderful views over the underlying countryside; it's bean shaped and measures 6 x12 metres (depth of 1.20-1.60 metres), has hydromassage features, and is finished with mosaic tiles.

Set among vineyards and undulating acres of olive groves, Villa La Loggia has been transformed into two semi-detached but completely independent cottages. Both cottages have their own private patio and garden area, ideal for enjoying your al fresco meals while gazing at the panorama below. The estate also offers a vegetable garden and orchard to which guests have access for fresh produce. The quality of furnishings and fittings is superb, using the best of Italian style and taste, and the spaciousness of the apartments makes them fell more like a home than holiday apartments.
