Overview

San Quirico d'Orcia House Rental Photos and Description

Perfect for 2 to 6 guests with over 200sqm of comfortable accommodation.

THE HOUSE: The rustic house has been renovated to a high standard and accommodates 2 to 6 guests with a master bedroom and two further large bedrooms over several floors. The location is unbeatable - perfect to soak up the Italian culture. The house is a quiet oasis in the heart of the charming village - a comfortable relaxing home and an ideal base from which to explore Southern Tuscany.

Rustic yet modern - The house combines rustic marble and stone floors, old wooden beams, a log burning stove and antique furnishings. The king sized comfy beds with crisp white linen compliment the high end bath rooms . The kitchen is fully equipped for budding chefs. Adding high speed Wifi, the large plasma TV, IPOD speakers and extensive DVD library ensures a comfortable stay.

The village of San Quirico has a quietly vibrant atmosphere. Here you’ll find artisan olive oil producers, several trendy boutiques and cafes all on your doorstep. Restaurants serve pici pasta, freshly rolled each morning.

The Val d’Orcia region has the best of Tuscany: a handful of famous hill towns, the wine area of Brunello and some of Italy's most photographed landscapes. Think of the breath-taking countryside of Russel Crowe’s 'Gladiator'.

The region has seen an influx of new hip hotels and cool restaurants. Visitors have always come for the relaxed sophistication, delicious wine and food and the Renaissance culture.

Explore the famous nearby hill towns of Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano. Further afield, Siena and Florence are essential destinations too with their architecture, museums and designer shops.

Want to chill by a pool? - No problem! Head to a hill top hotel to enjoy sunbathing, swimming and a long lunch. Alternatively soak in volcanic hot springs, get pampered at a boutique spa, or even spend a day at a beach club on the Tuscan coast or Lake Trasimeno.

Many of our visitors seem to return to our home year after year - which is most gratifying!

About Contact

Family owned house. We visit as much as we can and happy to share our home occassionally when we're not able to visit with our 3 small children.

Why Contact chose San Quirico d'Orcia

We were thrilled to acquire a whole house right in the heart of the quietly vibrant little village of San Quirico d'Orcia. The region has Tuscany's most breath-taking scenery, lots of renaissance architecture and some of Italy's best wine producers.

The house is a comfortable oasis with a dining terrace for countryside views. As a family we could easily spend a week without leaving the village - soaking up Italian culture which you miss with a remote hill top villa. All the cafes, restaurants, boutiques, gardens, medieval churches are a stroll away.

Eat out or Eat in - It all couldn't be easier with the fully equipped kitchen and dining terrace or with 5 excellent restaurants to suit all budgets a stroll away.

Great location for exploring Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Siena. Need to relax by a pool for the day? No problem - We have some great pool and hot springs recommendations.

What makes this house unique

- Restored Rustic charm with all the high end comforts of home

- Heart of village location

- The Val d’Orcia region has the best of Tuscany: a handful of famous hill towns, the wine area of Brunello and some of Italy's most photographed landscapes. Think of the breath-taking countryside of Russel Crowe’s 'Gladiator'.

Town House in historic village of San Quirico

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful place to stay and relax. Owner was extremely helpful with suggestions of things to do and we found the house immaculate when we arrived. Would not hesitate in recommending it to anyone and hopefully one day we will be able to repeat our visit.

The Val d’Orcia has the best of everything people love about Tuscany: a handful of little hill towns that are not too touristy, the wine area of Brunello di Montalcino and some of Italy's most beautiful landscapes. Think Russel Crowe’s Gladiator, that landscape of golden wheat fields topped with cypress trees.

Cover shots of coffee-table books are snapped right here. Its no surprise to see influx of boutique hotels and new restaurants as the valley become a destination in itself. It has long been an getaway for Italians and foreign travellers alike who come for the relaxed sophistication, the renowned wine and food, the Renaissance culture and the many hill top swimming pools or thermal spas.

The village of San Quirico d'Orcia sits on the ancient pilgrim route to Rome with the famous hill towns of Montalcino, Pienza, and Montepulciano nearby. The medieval city of Siena, far less daunting than Florence, is only 24 miles away.

San Quirico d'Orcia is famed for its tiny churches, Italianate gardens and festivals. There is a quietly vibrant atmosphere. Here you’ll find artisan olive oil producers, several boutiques and cafes all on your doorstep. The handful of great restaurants serve pici pasta freshly rolled each morning.

Many of our visitors seem to return to our home year after year - which is most gratifying!
