“Clear, sweet fresh water,” wrote the Italian poet Petrarch in the 14th century, and what better place to rest our weary limbs than in the waters of these two stunning pools.
The swimming pool at Villa Santo Stefano measures 10 x 4 m (33 x 13 ft) and is 1.40 m (4.5 ft) deep. It is surrounded by about 250 sq m (2,700 sq ft) of lawn and has 16 deck chairs and 1 umbrella.
The swimming pool at Villa Tinaio measures 12 x 6 m (40 x 20 ft) and ranges from 1 m (3.3 ft) to 2.50 m (8 ft) deep. It is surrounded by about 600 sq m (6,500 sq ft) of lawn and has 22 deck chairs and 2 umbrellas. The pool rests atop a hill from where you can enjoy the expanse of the Tuscan landscape stretching from Siena to the Crete Senesi region. The pool area is great for cocktail parties and other outdoor events and makes an ideal backdrop for receptions and other ceremonies.
