Villa Aurea is very comfortable, elegant and characterful hotel, where the modern minimalistic design has been succesfully mixed with some typical tuscan elements (ie exposed beams and terracotta ceilings and floors). The Villa is set in its own park, has an open air swimming pool (as from June 2005) with jacuzzi thalassotherapy, solarium, tennis court, botanical garden, antistress walk paths, little ponds and a natural cave. The villa also benefits of a large parking area. 0708 SR The complex consists of 3 independent units: Villa Aurea which dates back to the 1700's and its 2 annexes (Il Villino and Il Casale).
