Property Description

Villa Bramasole, also known as HII BRM, is a 10-bedroom villa in Tuscany, located only 2 kilometers from Cortona and 85 kilometers from Siena.
This Tuscan countryside is rich in vineyards, olive groves and sunflowers.

As in the novel, this villa is a large, completely restored stone house. Thanks to local artisans and craftsmen, the villa has been restored using antique tiles, wooden beams, and terracotta floors. A mix of antique and contemporary furniture is cleverly used to maintain the original character. A rustic farmhouse, adjacent to the villa, completes the estate. The interior offers several sitting areas, a billiards room, a large kitchen with a fireplace and a dining table with seating for 20 guests.

Five bedrooms are located in the main villa, while the other 5 bedrooms are situated in the guesthouse. Four of the ensuite bathrooms have bathtubs and showers. Five of the bathrooms are equipped with showers only. The tenth bedroom is suitable for children with its sofa bed.

A lawn surrounds the swimming pool, while an outdoor Jacuzzi enjoys a view of the countryside. The driveway portends a well-kept garden, which offers a mix of roses, lavender, and other plants. The garden is completely fenced in and situated on 2 different levels. The historical, 17th-century cistern in the garden was originally built to collect rainwater. A vegetable garden is available for guests. Adjacent to the house is a pergola furnished for outdoor dining.

Accommodating 18 guests, this property is ideal for families, large groups of friends, or destination weddings. The property has its own chapel. This villa also comes with a bocce court, a ping-pong table, wood-burning pizza oven, a fax machine, a home theater with surround sound, a parking lot, satellite TV and WiFi.

A security deposit of €2,000 is required. Clients will need to sign a security deposit form with credit card details in order to cover possible damages or loss at the property and any other extra services payable locally. The form needs to be completed and returned to WIMCO at least 1 week prior to departure in order to guarantee access to the property. The amount will be refunded after the departure if no damages or incidentals occurred during the stay.
