Overview

Trequanda Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Bedrooms: 2, bathrooms: 2, sleeps 4.

Villa Leopoldo A is an enthralling 110–square–meter (about 1,184 square feet)

apartment which sleeps four people. It features a wide private terrace with a

view to a valley and shared swimming pool and garden. The apartment is part of a

fascinating historical construction. It features heating and parking space.

There is a double bedroom, a twin bedroom, two bathrooms, a living–room with a

fireplace, and a kitchen.

The place

You will be in a small and gracious medieval hamlet consisting of old houses in

stone and surrounded by the green of vineyards and olive groves. The hamlet is

located on a prominent position on one of the sweet hills which are part of the

‘Crete Senesi ’. All around you is a landscape which is the most loved and

typical of Tuscany, reproduced by numerous artists and filled with an atmosphere

of peace and tranquility to be experienced by all!

You will be in the area where the famous Brunello di Montalcino wine is produced.

The little town of Montalcino, with its beautiful cellars where you can taste

heavenly wine is only 27 km (about 16.7 miles) away. The beautiful medieval

towns of Pienza and Sinalunga are about 15 km (about 9.3 miles) away, Siena is

50 km (about 31 miles) away, and Florence is 110 km (about 68.3 miles) away.

In addition, a few feet away from the place, there is a restaurant and some food

shops. In Pienza you will have shops open even on Sunday.

You will need a car during your stay at Villa Leopoldo A.

Its history

From the fourteenth century…

The apartment is part of a small castle whose origin dates back to the

fourteenth century. During that century, the Hospital of Santa Maria della Scala

of Siena, owner of the surrounding lands, built the castle as a fort to keep all

the products of the place. The warehouses of wheat and oil, along with the main

house and the peasant and artisan lodgings, were enclosed within the crenellated

walls and protected by a high watch tower and moats filled with water.

During centuries the hamlet and the nearby land had belonged to the Hospital of

Siena. But then, in 1775, the place was sold by the Grand Duke of Toscana,

Pietro Leopoldo, to the ancestors of the current proprietors.

Unfortunately the elegant medieval crenellated tower was destroyed and knocked

down by the Germans during their withdrawal from the Second World War.

…up to today!

The castle still preserves its medieval structure on the inside: still intact

are the two small courts around which there were the lodgings of the peasants

and the shops of the artisans. And you can still visit the main house. On the

walls you can still see the old coat of arms of the Hospital of Santa Maria

della Scala and of the oligarchs who have succeeded throughout the centuries.

Inside the master apartments you will be able to visit the bedroom with the

splendid canopy bed where the Grand duke Pietro Leopoldo used to sleep during

his visits, the old reception room with its authentic furnishings, the great

kitchen, and also a gracious and small eighteenth–century theater.

Right outside the walls you will see a perfectly preserved small church where

religious ceremonies and weddings can be held.

The castle is surrounded by lands from which their proprietors still get wine

and olive oil: products that you can purchase at the place along with the

fantastic creamy Limoncello, which is produced by the owner with the lemons of

the garden.

The shared swimming pool and the gardens

While at Villa Leopoldo, you will have, along with other guests of the other

three small apartments, a large garden and a beautiful 11 x 7 meter (about 36 x

22 feet) swimming pool completely at your disposal. The pool is in a panoramic

position, and even from inside the water you will have a wide view of the wavy

hills below.

Around the swimming pool there are umbrellas, sun loungers, and deck chairs. And

next to the pool, you can relax outdoors on a terrace shaded by a cover with

roofing tiles.

The swimming pool is available from half April to half October.

You will be able to organize outdoor barbecues, maybe with the famous Tuscan

steak: in the garden, at your disposal, is a barbecue in stone and a pergola

under which there are tables and wooden benches.

From the garden you can reach a portico under which a ping–pong table and some

mountain bikes are placed, all available to every guest.

Another wide and fascinating shared garden is placed along the walls of the

castle, and it features the shape of a large and long terrace facing the valley

below. This garden is shaded by a linden tree and fruit trees, and there are

also big vases where lemon trees are cultivated, quite typical of old Tuscan

master houses. In the shade of the trees, you will have tables and chairs

available.

Along with the entrance to this garden, you will notice a spacious common living

area. It is an informal and nice room to be enjoyed with somebody else: it

features a magnificent vaulted ceiling with bricks, and you will also notice,

amidst shelves with bottles of wine and antique objects of the countryside life,

a small living–room in wicker furniture, a table, an easel, and a lot of space

for you to enjoy your hobbies.

The house

Villa Leopoldo A has an entrance which is separate from the inside courtyard. In

order to step into the apartment, you have to climb a stairway consisting of 15

steps of stone. You will enter a spacious living–room where there is a large

fireplace, a couch, armchairs, and a television set. The kitchen communicates

with the living– room, and it is quite spacious. Besides the cooking area, there

is also a dining table. The kitchen is equipped with a four–burner stove, a

small oven, and a fridge.

From the living–room you can reach the two beautiful bedrooms, which have

windows overlooking the valley. The bedrooms are large and elegantly furnished.

Each has its own bathroom with shower. One room is a double bedroom while the

other features two single beds.

Villa Leopoldo A boasts the fascination of old Tuscan countryside houses: the

floor is in terracotta, the ceiling is sustained by wooden joists, and the

furniture is in wood and wrought iron from the local handicraft. Furnishings are

elegant and well cared for.

The private terrace

From the living–room of Villa Leopoldo A you can go straight onto your private

terrace, about 20 square meters (about 215 square feet) large. From the terrace,

your eyes will gaze at a vast horizon of green hills. On the terrace you will

have an umbrella and a large table with chairs: the perfect place to enjoy some

fresh air from your first cup of coffee in the morning until your evening dinner

under the stars!

Nearby tourist attractions

During your stay at Villa Leopoldo A you will be in a great and convenient

position to go on daily visits to places in Tuscany, beginning from Siena (50 km

or about 31 miles away), the one hundred castles spread in the Sienese

countryside, Florence (110 km or 68 miles away) and all the surroundings.

You can also travel for two hours and reach beaches of the coast, such as those

of Monte Argentario and of the fascinating lagoon of Orbetello. You can even

visit Rome easily on one–day tours.
