Sarteano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Situated on a large estate with other luxury villas, this luxury villa rental is perfect for a wedding in Tuscany. It has a completely private setting 5 km off the main road. The estate's vast private land borders a National Park so it is not uncommon to spy deer, pheasants, and other wild game. Beautifully landscaped with native flora, this Tuscany luxury villa's private grounds include a lovely swimming pool surrounded by comfortable lounge chairs. It is an ideal spot to enjoy peace, quiet, and spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside. This is a great Tuscany villa for a large group or family because each beautifully furnished bedroom has its own large ensuite bathroom. There are trails and dirt roads on the estate for jogging or walking. Conveniently located in Southern Tuscany, it is possible to take day trips to Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, and Cortona, as well as destinations in Umbria, such as Perugia, Orvieto, and Todi. You can arrange to have a cook prepare meals in your own home, or drive 8 minutes into the nearby town for dinner.
(2000 acres) An 11th century abbey is the focal point of this estate. There are eleven independent, Tuscan luxury villa rentals decorated in a similar minimalist, architectural style. Each villa is separate and private from other structures, and each has a wonderful view. Casa I Picci is composed of four buildings dating back to the 15th and 16th Century. It was restored in 2000. There is a main building, an annex and two independent guest houses. Casa I Picci has a very beautiful garden just in front of the house. On a little hill on the back side of the house is the private swimming pool, which enjoys a wonderful view of the valley over the roof of the house. Close to the farmhouse wonderful hiking trails leading through the hills can be found. The dirt/gravel road up to the house is long (5km) and uphill, but it does not require a 4x4!
