House, 1 Bedroom + Other (See Description), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
Welcome to Lo Stallino, a beautifully restructured former stable located in the hills of the Chianti region of Tuscany 60 km from Florence and 20 km from Siena. The property consisting of five acres of terraced olive orchards, landscaped gardens, and woods, was originally purchased by an American doctor in 1970 as a retirement home. It is currently owned by his son and daughter-in-law, an archaeologist and a landscape architect, who have completely restored the old stable building as their guest house. It is now a charming one bedroom cottage with beautiful views of vineyards and medieval castles, a private garden terrace for outdoor dining, and a large library of novels and guidebooks.
Lo Stallino also features a new kitchen and bathroom, new upholstery for the furniture, hand-made mattresses for the beds, central heating, a dishwasher, washing machine, dryer, satellite TV, and wireless internet access. It is ideal for a couple seeking tranquility from the crowds but proximity to the important cultural centers of Tuscany. There are numerous fine restaurants and wineries in the area, as well as cafes and shops in the nearby villages of Lecchi, Radda, and San Sano. There are also hiking trails and natural pools for swimming in the area.
