Sarteano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description
Although situated on a large estate with other luxury villa rentals, this Tuscany vacation villa is unique for its private setting and beautiful views. 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 holiday villa in Tuscany has private grounds including 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 accommodation in Tuscany 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 Il Fagiano is a lovely farmhouse dating back to the 15th and 16th centuries and was restored in 2000. It has a view of the wilder side of the Orcia Valley. The view of the sheep grazing in the countryside provides a pleasant country flavor to this house. The private swimming pool is close to the house but hidden by trees.
