Villa Ombuto comes with Cooking Classes

Home - Europe - Italy - Tuscany

Rental Description

A luxurious villa ideal for large groups, family reunions or for two or three families wanting to have a holiday together. The villa is divided into three fully equipped apartments so that everyone has their own privacy and then for central dining you can use the cantina which is a cave-like structure with large kitchen and dining room. An ideal place to meet, cook, eat and have fun together. 

Villa Ombuto is an Tuscany vacation rental (50km south of Florence) situated in the hills of the Casentino valley. Extensive private estate (80 Acres/32 Hectare) including 3 rivers with relaxing views over woods and valleys and very secluded. Poppi, a picturesque medieval village is just 4 km away and the closest Golf Course is a 10 minute drive. An ideal location to get away from it all and enjoy peace and quiet but close enough to make day trips in the historic Casentino, Chianti, Cortona area or to Florence, Sienna and Arezzo.

The villa has 8 romantic double bedrooms with adjoining stylish marbled bathrooms with either bath or shower.
All the suites have either wonderful terraces or balconies with spectacular views. The accommodation has been comfortably furnished in farm style teak furniture with great attention to detail. Cozy living rooms with fireplaces, furnished with teak colonial-style furniture (custom-made for us in Bali) reflect our passion for international travel and collecting international pieces.
The original wooden beams and terracotta floors have been restored and create a true Tuscan ambiance.

Other facilities include a spa with sauna, steam room and a massage area

The cantina, indoor dining room open out onto this square so called Piazza making it a wonderful space to meet and dine together after cooking up a feast during your cooking classes in Italy.

On a plateau with a view over the Tuscan hills is the solar heated pool (14m x 7m).

Other features include a hot tub made from a wine barrel, a sauna and steam room as well as a fitness and massage area.
The pool area is equipped with garden furniture, sun beds and a barbecue. This breathtaking spot has a great view of the hills, valleys and extensive woods, which is the ideal place to relax and enjoy nature.

Outdoor area
A large private outdoor area, Casa Ombuto has a romantic pergola for great Tuscan alfresco lunches or dinners on the magical piazza. A Fruit tree orchard lies close by and offers an abundance of fresh fruit in season.
