You really can’t get bored. This house belonged to the grandfather of the actual owner, who recently restored it to perfection with great taste and great care, trying to maintain the old style and furniture. Indeed, many of the beautiful furniture are antique and many of the original furnishings have been restored to perfection. All the rooms have the typical Tuscan wooden beamed ceilings and the Tuscan handmade cotto floors. The bedrooms have parquet floors of massive oak, walnut and chestnut.
