OLD RESTORED FARMHOUSE ON THE TUSCAN HILLS

Abbadia San Salvatore House Rental Photos and Description

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathroom, sleep 4

Podere dei Castagni is part of a beautifully restored old farmhouse nestled in the hills of the Val D’Orcia beneath the gentle slope of Monte Amiata (1738 m.). The house has a charming, country feeling, and is set in a quiet, wooded three acre property with many plantings and stonework. The interior of the house is clean and bright. The first floor is large and open, with a kitchen, a living room with a large traditional Tuscan fireplace, and a bathroom with shower. It is filled with natural light and views of the surrounding gardens. On the second floor are two bedrooms and a bathroom with shower. The house is furnished with local antiques and original artwork. Architectural details include cotto tiles, wooden beams, local stone, and doors from a medieval bell tower. The house’s elevation and ventilation afford cool and comfortable nights during the hot Tuscan summer. Laundry on site.

Further Details: The location of the house is ideal for exploring ancient southern Tuscan towns such as Siena, San Gimingnano, Pienza and Montepulciano, as well as neighboring Umbria. Florence is an easy day trip away. One can also explore numerous charming villages like Vivo d’Orcia which dot the mystical countryside of the Val D’Orcia, one of the most beautiful natural areas of Tuscany and a recently designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

If the Tuscan sun gets too intense, you can take refuge in the cool mountain forests of Monte Amiata. Here one can take long walks, hike, ski or even hunt for the prized Porcini under a shady canopy of Beech and Chestnut trees. The town of Abbadia San Salvatore, with its ninth century abbey, medieval Borgo, restaurants, shops, local festivals and markets, is within walking distance. You can relax and renew yourself in the healing thermal waters of San Filippo or Bagni Vignoni which are fifteen and twenty five minutes by car.

Important Etruscan areas, the Maremma, and the Mediterranean coast are an hour and half drive.

There is also the possibility of informal cooking classes.

The house is reachable by bus from either Siena or Roma. Roma Fiumicino and Florence are the closest airports.

Payments in Euros are also possible through Paypal.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Staying in your home for 12 days was like soft, creamy air flowing over me. It is wonderfully laid back. The mornings on the back table with my espresso coffee and computer connecting to the Internet for our books progress and a new training assignment were tangible evidence of being connected and productive while on a vacation.

It was "gigglingly" wonderful to eat breakfast on the back patio; then drive to town for groceries before we took off for the day.

Your mother was charming and such fun

UN CHARMANT SEJOUR DANS DES PAYSAGES FABULEUX

  • 4 of 5
Parfaite destination pour une famille de quatre personnes. La maison avait un charme fou: restauree par la fille de la proprietaire, architecte, elle etait aussi tres bien entretenue et tres propre. Le jardin etait merveilleusement fleuri et tres bien agence - un regal pour les enfants! La proprietaire ne parlant pas anglais, les dialogues ont donne lieu a des rigolades et jeux de mimes et elle a su regaler les enfants avec des gateaux faits maison. La region regorge d'activites en tous genres et Abbadia San Salvatore est une mignonne petite ville loin de l'agitation touristique, ce qui lui confere de serieux atouts. Les bains de San Filippo, Bagno Vignoni, le sommet Amiata (super plan en ete quand il fait tres chaud en plaine), Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, la splendide Sienne, Orvieto, etc. sont des destinations aisees en une journee. Seul hic: pas de filtre a eau et des canalisations defectueuses en ville donc il fallait s'approvisionner en eau minerale - et pas de machine a laver. Mais le charme des lieux, la gentillesse de la proprietaire et ses bons plans 'pizzerias, traiteur' nous ont fait tout oublier!! A recommander.

HEERLIJK RUSTIG GELEDEN VAKANTIEHUIS

  • 5 of 5
We hebben hier een heerlijke vakantie gehad. Het huis is ruim, schoon en netjes. Op de bovenverdieping zijn de ramen voorzien van horren, beneden niet. Er is beneden een kleine badkamer en boven een grotere.
Verder gratis en goede Wifi en een grote tuin. Achter het huis kun je lekker in de schaduw zitten.
Ernaast woont de moeder van de eigenaresse waar we leuk contact mee hadden voor zover ons gebrekkige italiaans dat toeliet.
We hebben veel uitstapjes gemaakt want de omgeving is prachtig. Aanraders: Pienza, Montepulciano, Monticchielo, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni. Maar de hele omgeving is mooi. En niet toeristisch (2e helft augustus).
In de buurt helaas geen zwembad, maar wel 2 meren. Lago di Trasimeno is ongeveer 1 tot anderhalf uur rijden maar ook die rit is de moeite waard, En Lago di Bolsena ongeveer een half uur rijden. Hier zijn we niet geweest.
Voor boodschappen hoef je ook niet ver, in Abbadia zit een prima Coop.
