Why The Owner chose San Giovanni d'Asso
I didn't really buy this as a vacation rental house,but I still live in it as my own home apart from some periods when I rent it out I think this is why guests coming to the house, many of whom return year by year, find a hospitable atmosphere and feel at home.
I always had very old friends living near here, and used to enjoy visiting because of the pleasant company and interesting community of people, considering it almost the most beautiful part of Tuscany.
What makes this villa unique
Our home is in a unique unspoilt natural setting, but close to the village and all amenities, as well as the delights which this special part of Tuscany offers,not far away from Montalcino, Pienza, San Quirico d'Orcia, Siena and Florence.
There are also many local attractions, village medieval festivals,cultural events, beautiful local museums and notable culinary specialties, above all the white truffle, pecorino sheep cheese and famous wines. We have personal contacts with excellent restaurants and wineries where with pleasure we can introduce our guests .
