Vikida

Header

Villa Vikida is located equidistant from Montepulciano and Cortona – just a 30-minute drive – and so offers the opportunity to discover the beautiful Val d’Orcia as well as Cortona and its surroundings, among other gems in the area. This two-floor independent villa and its dependence are set in a 13-acre estate cultivated with olive trees. The grounds are completely fenced and offer absolute privacy to guests, who may find themselves lingering near the saline-water state-of-the-art heated swimming pool. Another big plus to consider about Villa Vikida is its vicinity to the town: guests can reach its stores and restaurants with an easy stroll.

OUTDOOR FEATURES

Including a pizza oven and barbecue grill, the exterior area is fully equipped for cooking a Babette’s feast and serving it al fresco under the stars.

SPECIAL CHARACTERISTICS
While Vikida is a fine-looking villa, in general, in specific, its combination of amenities makes it very special: all en-suite king bedrooms, a state-of-the-art heated swimming pool, a private wellness area, and a blessed location that is both on a wide olive-oil-producing estate and within walking-distance to town. Who needs more?

The impressive views of Val d'Orcia, which inspired so many Renaissance painters, is dotted with little villages, castles, abbeys and hamlets, each telling a fascinating ancient story. Time here can still pass slowly and you can enjoy every second of it.
Visit the famous town of Montalcino, best-known for the distinguished Brunello red wine, and the artistic jewel town of Pienza, which was used as a backdrop to Franco Zeffirelli’s masterpiece: “Romeo and Juliet”. The walled hilltop medieval town of Montepulciano, the picturesque Cetona, the charming thermal villages of San Casciano dei Bagni and Bagno Vignoni are also well worth a visit.
To explore Florence on a day trip, the best way is to leave your car at the Chiusi-Chianciano train station and hop on one of the many trains to Florence - Santa Maria Novella Station (they run every hour and in less than two hours you are in Florence’s historical center).
