  • This luxury villa in Tuscany is situated deep in the heart of Piero della Francesca country in the Niccone Valley, Fonte Vecchia is a beautifully restored, spacious luxury villa in Tuscany for rent with a dramatic watch tower, lying among gentle hills enjoying views unchanged for centuries.  

    Centuries ago, when the church was the significant power in this area, most of the local nobility employed artists to paint frescoes in churches to ensure they were in God’s good graces. Or at least, the prayers of the local clergy.  Piero della Francesca was one such artist and he spent much of his time in this region, taking inspiration from the incredible panorama, the immense blue sky and a landscape painted by God himself.

    Decorated in typically Tuscan style with mellow terracotta d’Assisi floors, exposed chestnut beams and thick whitewashed walls it needs no air conditioning and remains cool in the summer and warm in the winter, insulated from the strongest summer sun or harshest winter gale. Furnished with period country furniture, it offers comfortable spacious accommodation ideal for a family looking for a base to expore or just to relax together.

    Life in this region is lived al fresco, outdoors, the covered terrace, the loggia, the large linen sun umbrellas and the mature trees give dappled shade and within the 7 acres of olives with glorious views across the hills one can find many places to settle with a picnic. There are fig, greengage, cherry and other fruit trees in the sloping orchard which offer great scrumping opportunities in season. Partake of barbecue lunches, sleep them off then nip into town for a passeggiata with the locals before indulging all over again in one of the many wonderful well priced trattorias and restaurants in the area.
