WONDERFUL AND CHARACTERISTIC VILLA WITH SWIMMING POOL SURROUNDED BY MEDIEVAL WALLS

Radicondoli Villa Rental Photos and Description

Detached villa with private pool and garden 4 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms

House of Leo 'The Orchard' is a romantic and beautiful house, located in Belforte, a small and quiet medieval village in the province of Siena.

Thanks to its strategic position on top of a hill, Belforte was conceived as a military fortress in Roman times. All the walls that surround the village and the house are under the superintendence of the artistic and architectural heritage.

Leo's house is the ideal place to spend your holidays, with your family, friends, or simply for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday, immersed in nature and tourist sites, surrounded by Tuscan hills still intact.

The house is very large (200 square meters) and was renovated in 2012. All the materials were chosen following a philosophy of attention to quality 'and provenance. The ceramics in the bathrooms are made and decorated by hand, while the Parquet that ricompre the entire surface is distributed by a company of Trentino and is produced in a natural way, without the use of protecting substances or chemical compounds.

Leo's house is organized on three levels, so as to guarantee all guests private space and quiet.

On the ground floor there is a large room fully furnished with living room, a big fireplace, library, TV, sink and table games, there is also a piano, so that musicians can find a good mate of holidays.

The first floor is the largest of the house and overlooks the garden, and here we can find a large and bright living area with dining table for 4/8 people and a living room wicker. In the next room is the kitchen, new and modern, equipped with oven, fridge and dishwasher on the first floor are also 3 bedrooms (2 with double bed and one with twin beds, perfect for a couple), two bathrooms: one with separate shower / tub, the second smallest with shower.

Coming out of the living area, there is a first garden with pergolas and barbecue where you can go down to the oldest part of the garden with swimming pool (outdoor) out of respect for the Superintendency of Architectural and Cultural for the medieval walls that surround the entire property '. The pool is surrounded by fruit trees (cherries, apricots, apples, plums, grapes, plums) and another pergola.

Returning to the first part of the garden, we have a wonderful and comfortable spiral staircase that leads to a terrace-solarium. This terrace (with its panoramic view) introduces a large, bright loft with 1 double bed (with possibility 'of adding a single bed) with private bathroom with shower.

The owners and operators of this holiday home are Alessandra and Leo, a young couple efficient and dynamic, which will be glad to inform you and direct you to places of interest, as well as to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible.

Marie Cogoluenhes

Nous avons loué la maison à 3 couples + 2 enfants et un bébé du 10 au 17 Août 2013. C'était parfait. La maison est grande, bien aménagée, jolie déco. Le jardin est très agréable avec plusieurs terrasses et une superbe vue sur les montagnes. Plein d'arbres fruitiers et plantes aromatiques pour cuisiner. Le village est plein de charme et animé, il y a une petite supérette et un resto / bar. Merci à Léo pour son excellent accueil et ses conseils pratiques sur la région.

INCREDIBLE TUSCAN EXPERIENCE

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth trip to Italy so we were looking for a different Tuscan experience. Instead of going from hotel to hotel or a B&B we wanted a house in the country all to ourselves. The spacious and beautiful “Casa di Leo” holiday house was everything we had hoped for. When we book a vacation home online I’m never 100% sure that what you see is what you get - but Casa di Leo house lived up to its description and much, much more.

We stayed there for 18 days and had the most terrific time. We are already planning our return next year. For us, Leo and his wife Alessandra were the ideal hosts. Answering our questions and making recommendations was always done in a timely and efficientl manner.

On two different occasions Leo and Alessandra prepared us a wonderful “authentic Italian dinner” that was superior to any restaurant we have ever visited in Italy. During our next trip we plan to learn some of their secrets by taking one of their cooking classes they offer at the house.

Staying in the small village of Belforte was ideal for us. A relaxing place that felt like it was there just for us….yet the nearby village of Radicondoli had everything we needed: restaurants, coffee bars, shops, groceries…etc.

We found Belforte to be a perfect region to launch from for our daily Tuscan excursions. There’s not much more I can about our stay other than “grazie di tutto” Leo and Alessandra for making this trip a memorable one…..an outstanding Tuscan vacation not soon forgotten.

FABULOUS TUSCAN VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We spent two wonderful weeks at Leo and Alessandra’s Holiday Home and would recommend it to anyone wanting to experience the true Tuscan lifestyle. The house is authentic but with all the comforts of home; the hosts are delightful, hospitable and attentive. They made us feel right at home. The village of Belforte is quaint and the location is ideal for daily adventures to other Tuscan towns as well as being close to both Siena and Florence. We thoroughly enjoyed our excursions as well as the time spent in the house with a big roaring fire, bottle of wine, and beautiful sunsets. Magnifico!

SIMPLY WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Alessandra and Leo for helping to make our birthday celebration week at your holiday home in beautiful Belforte so special and filled with warm memories. From the serenity of your scented and fruit filled garden surrounded by the hills of Tuscany to the comfort of your well appointed and spacious home, to your helpful and attentive ways, we could not have asked for a more indulgent experience. And the Sunday dinner that you prepared for our party and served under the stars was nothing short of spectacular.

We enjoyed our adventures each day to the local sheep farm for cheese and yogurt, as well as farms along the outlying agritourism route. Cheese, bread, olive oil, honey and wine never tasted so good! We also spent time bike riding in Lucca, climbing the hills and touring the towers of San Gimignano and being moved by the beauty and magnificence of il duomo in Sienna. But at the end of each day, we looked forward to the drive back through the countryside to the sleepy fortress town of Belforte with its two church bells, soft sounds of life in Italy and the comfort of our holiday home.

Mille grazie to you both!

BEAUTIFUL PLACE TO RELAX OR TO USE AS A LAUNCHING POINT FOR THE REST OF TUSCANY

  • 5 of 5
We were five adult women looking to enjoy all sites and flavors that Tuscany has to offer. We found our match with “Casa Leo.” The house has ample space for 5+, allowing for both group gatherings and quiet space for each of us. The house and gardens are very charming, the photos don’t show how really pretty it is.

The house, built on a small hill, has 3 floors. The entry-level floor has a large sitting area with fireplace and TV. The second floor has 3 bedrooms (I think the beds are queen size), 2 baths, another sitting area, kitchen and 2 eating areas. The second floor, opens onto the beautiful terraced gardens with swimming pool, pergolas and fruit trees. The 3rd floor bedroom (containing 2 beds, full bath and a terrace) is accessible through the garden and a spiral staircase.

We spent most of our time on the second floor and in the gardens. There are 4 different places to relax in the gardens - all with beautiful views. One of our pleasures was to rotate sitting in each of the garden spaces (of course with a bottle of delicious local wine)! The gardens were so relaxing, it was at times difficult to leave and explore out of the house!

Our hosts, Leo and Alessandra were very kind and generous with their time. They provided assistance with every aspect of our trip: planning day-trips, places to eat, communications with airlines about lost luggage, really every aspect! When we arrived they treated us as guests in their home. A pleasure to arrive to such hospitality after a long journey! One night we opted for Alessandra and Leo to cook for the group. If you have the opportunity, take advantage of Alessandra’s amazing culinary talents. The meal exceeded all expectations, not only highlighting local farms but also interpreting traditional Tuscany recipes into a new, exquisite experience. My only regret is that we only had them cook for us once. I could go on and on about how delicious and decedent that meal was…

A few other details: The wifi in the house is good. However, the only access point are the 2nd floor common areas, so it can be hard to find a quite place to use wi-fi based communications. We were able to use it without issue for FaceTime and WebEx. There is no wired phone line in the house (so be sure to bring a mobile phone). You must have a car as only limited food/wine resources are available in Belforte. The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked frequently.

Our wonderful one week stay was over too quickly! Thank you Leo and Alessandra!

AN AWESOME HOLIDAY!

  • 5 of 5
I spent a fantastic week in Tuscany with a group of friends last summer and it was great to spend such a relaxing holiday at Leo's Holiday Home. The location is ideal for families, friends and peolple who desire to spend a relaxing holiday in a wonderful naturalistic place. The house is very nice and very clean, the kitchen well equiped and in general pretty good furnished. The best is the garden with the pool: cool, there are several fruit trees and the swimming pool is great when It's warm. The House is also perfect for travelers, we travelled and visited Tuscany and the location was good: in a very quiet small village, but, at the same time, not far away from Siena, Volterra, Sea and Florence! I want to thank Alessandra and Leo because they were always so nice with us and I am sure we will come back again, thx!
