My family discovered this lost paradise in the summer of 2004.
The whole property was abandoned and in a state of neglect. The construction was little more than ruins to be entirely restored, but among the groves of oak and olive trees, we climbed on the roof of the house… there and in that moment the incomparable beauty of the view opens out, and we immediately fell in love with this dreamy landscape, and we decide at once that we ought to own La Valiana.
The three years spent renovating the entire property involved a huge challenge, extended from the building to the interiors, from the garden to the vineyard. Here we totally replant the veins with Sangiovese grapes for the production of Nobile di Montepulciano, including ancient native plant of Prugnolo Gentile.
About the villa our intention was to enhance the ancient building’s graces and transform it into an elegant villa, and contemporary to evolve it naturally towards a more modern concept of comfort. The fabrics and furniture were chosen personally by us – found at local antique markets and shops in Florence, Arezzo and Siena. Thanks to the skilled craftsmen of the area we optimised a combination of antique styling and modern technology in the heart of countryside, creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
So this charming property was slowly reborn thanks to the care, sensitive and tenacity of the whole family.
On June 2007 we finally opened the door of Villa La Valiana to our first guests. From then, we host plenty people from all over the world, trying to let them feel at home. All our works wanted to allow you today to can enjoy – in an high level of privacy and the best home comforts – of the ideal bucolic scenery who bewitched us that day on the roof.
You just have to decide how you would like to spend your days: take a stroll through quaint Tuscan hill town and relax in a café on the village square; or take it easy, enjoying the beautiful view and bathing in sunshine under the Tuscan sun. That’s the sole intention for which Villa La Valiana comes to light: giving you the opportunity to live and breathe Tuscany in an unforgettably beautiful way.
