LA PRIMAVERA - A WONDERFUL COZY HOUSE CLOSE TO THE AMAZING SPAS OF TUSCANY!

Castiglione d'Orcia House Rental Photos and Description

Near to wonderful spas, 3 bedrooms, sleeps 6

La Primavera is a really cozy house - a comfortable spot where guests will immediately feel at home. The owner has renovated her house with great skill, keeping the original patina and many antique features: cupboards built into the walls, terracotta floors, sturdy wooden beams, the arches in the former stables ... and last but not least the unique, ancient fireplace. This open fireplace is so large that one can step into it: there are wooden benches along the side, allowing one to warm oneself right next to the fire. Main floor: external steps lead to the entrance hall, 1 living room with fireplace, 1 kitchen-living room, 1 bathroom (bathtub). Top floor: 2 double rooms (access to one room through the other), 1 small twin-bed room. Basement: 1 further living room.

About the region: Just below the Rocca we find the town of Bagno Vignoni (3 km), with its beautiful open-air thermal baths and next-door, the spa center (enjoy a fango, massage etc.). San Quirico d'Orcia, roughly 7 km away, has also a large open-air swimming pool. The surrounding countryside is full of surprising cultural treasures suitable for excursions. Particularly impressive and largely unknown is the ancient square in Bagno Vignoni: the houses are built around a central pool (!). The palazzi around the square look out onto steaming water... in the Quattrocento people used to bathe here... The hot springs at Bagni San Filippo are only around 20 km away: emerald-green water collects in snow-white limestone hollows - a rare experience! The waters of the thermal spa centre of Bagni San Filippo are of best quality!

Beautiful location: Nearby Pienza offers unexpectedly high-quality renaissance architecture and the best sheep's cheese in Tuscany. As you probably know, some of the most famous Italian wines also come from here: Brunello di Montalcino and Nobile di Montepulciano. Touring Ideas: Grocery shop 1 km, Castiglione d'Orcia 1 km, Bagni Vignoni 3 km, San Quirico d'Orcia 7 km, Pienza 15 km, Montalcino 20 km, Bagni San Filippo 20 km, Montepulciano 30 km, Siena 45 km, Florence 100 km, Rome 180 km.

Great House!

  • 5 of 5
My family, 5 of us, absolutely loved this house. We spent two weeks here and hated to move out. It was a perfect location to visit the surrounding towns. While there we made day trips to Siena, Improvensa, Pienza, Bagno Vinganni, Monticino, Multiplicano, and San Quirico. We also spent a few days just at the house sunning in the garden. The town of Castiglione D'orcia was a lovely small town where we got to interact and know the local towns people. There are several wonderful restaurants in the town. "Riama", is a charming restaurant that has great pasta, and and the "Pane e Companatico", the local place where you can get to meet and interact with the locals. We loved cooking in the kitchen and having a family dinner in the downstairs living room. The place was very clean. Everything was as described, and the landlord Susanna, and her son Marco were so helpful and accommodating.

La Primavera is situated in the picturescque Val d'Orcia, on the edge of the peaceful village of Rocca d'Orcia. This little hamlet nestles up to one of the typical hills in the region and has sprung up around a Medieval fortress (Rocca). The height (600 m) provides outstanding views of the surrounding countryside. The whole village has now been smartened up without losing any of its original appeal. The alleyways are cobbled and romantically lit-up with antique lanterns at night, the houses are made of natural stones. There is a wonderful old square, with the old village well and a trattoria with the inviting slogan: it's easy to come in but difficult to leave us. We can confirm this. Although the house does not have its own pool, children will not be bored here. Because just below the Rocca we find the town of Bagno Vignoni (3 km), with its beautiful open-air thermal baths and next-door, the spa center (enjoy a fango, massage etc.).

Other Activities: Trekking, sightseeing, spas

Notes:
A small raised area near the entrance provides a delightful seated terrace, overgrown with grapevines - just large enough for 4 people to sit and enjoy the surroundings. Views of the old stone houses, opposite, which have been just as lovingly renovated as La Primavera. There is also a garden (the former vegetable garden), which lies (as was often the case then) at a slight distance from the house. Go up the alleyway, along a grassy path and after a few more steps you will reach a delightful garden. The garden is large enough to seat 6 people (2 sun-loungers also available), with a wonderful view of the hilly landscape.
