Old farmhouse on Monte San Savino hills. Villa Gioiosa is an old stone house which in the past was part of the nearby Benedictine monastery, and used by the monks as a chestnut drying place, of which the surrounding woods are rich. Today the house, even if completely restored, maintains the old Tuscan characteristics, talking about architectural features and rustic furnishing, enriched with local antiques. Only a few km away the village of Monte San Savino, famous for its pottery and beautiful buildings and lanes. Here we find shops, supermarkets, restaurants and all services.
The garden, the pool and the equipped external spaces. In the wide garden, adorned with medicinal plants, flowers and olives, we find a beautiful swimming pool (size mt 5x10, depth mt 1,50), a barbecue area for outdoor nights and dinners, supplied with gazebo, table and chairs and wood burning oven. In the property that extends through fields and woods it will be pleasant to take long and relaxing walks.

We had a wonderful week at Villa Gioiosa!
As the website states the villa interior is very rustic, but to modernise it would spoil it. (But the appliances are fairly new, the TV has numerous channels and wi-fi worked perfectly.) However it is the gardens that made our week so special, they are just amazing. Vast.....I don't think we ever reached the boundary fence and with a wide range of trees and flowers all beautifully tended and cared for. The pool was lovely spotlessly clean and just the right temperature. The road up to the villa is long but this helps add to its remoteness but it is in no way difficult to negotiate. The small town of Monte San Savino had everything we needed with plenty of restaurants and an excellent co-op on the outskirts. We would have appreciated some information at the villa about the town, restaurants and shops. And as the villa had not be rented previously there was a lack of "odds and ends" in the kitchen: no salt and pepper, washing up liquid etc. However, the bed linen and towels were of excellent quality!
