Villa Guelfa is a large Tuscan villa which sits on a magnificent hilltop commanding a breathtaking view over the medieval city of Pistoia, one of the ten provinces of Tuscany. The villa can host up to 10 guests in 5 bedrooms.

The villa, built on three levels, dates back to the late 18th century and has recently been restored to high standards. The 5 large bedrooms and the spacious interiors include many original features such as fine old exposed beams, original polished parquet floors, terracotta tiled floors, French arched windows and vaulted ceiling. There are also many antique furnishings, drawings and paintings which add to the genuinity of the property. 

Even though the Villa is only a five minute drive from Pistoia, The villa is set among vineyards, olive groves (the owner produces fine olive oil and wine) and mature century old oak trees which provide a welcome shade from the sun.

The ground floor is composed of an entrance hall, kitchen, a wine-cellar, a study and an expansive dining/living-room which opens onto the large terrace through vaulted French windows. The kitchen features all modern domestic appliances one would expect and a fantastic open fireplace for cooking meats or slow pot-roasts.

The first floor has 2 twin rooms and 1 double bedroom, 1 large shared bathroom (Sala da bagno) and a further separate lavatory.

The second floor has 1 twin room and 1 double bedroom, a large bathroom with shower and a further shower-room. The 2 bedrooms on this floor have been imaginatively decorated with trompe l’oiel.
 
The grounds include a built-in barbeque, many shaded sitting areas and the swimming pool which is positioned below the terrace. The owners live in a house to the side of the villa, completely separated to allow total privacy but are available to answer any questions, organise tours or Tuscan cooking lessons.
