Overview

San Quirico d'Orcia House Rental Photos and Description

Sleeps 6 in 3 large bedrooms, 2 New bathrooms, Dining Terrace, Wifi

THE HOUSE: The medieval house has been renovated to a high standard with 3 large bedrooms sleeping up to 6 over 4 floors. The high spec kitchen and bathrooms, comfortable beds with crisp white linen, a log fire, plasma TV, extensive DVD library and Internet Wifi make the house a perfectly relaxing home and an ideal base from which to explore Southern Tuscany.

- A comfortably furnished sitting-dining room with log fire leads out to a dining terrace with views.

- Three large bedrooms provide accommodation for six (2 double beds & a pair of single beds)

- Crisp white linen and white bath towels provided

- Two new Starck - Grohe bathrooms

- Fully equipped kitchen for enthusiastic chef's

- Two mountain bikes

- Stay connected: WIFI Internet, IPOD docking speakers, Internet Radio, large PLASMA TV with 60 DVD movie library

Swimming Pool Options- there are several you can pay to visit on nearby hill tops, or free if you combine with a long lunch.

In winter - Blazing log fire, excellent central heating, double glazing all keep the house cosy. Its fun to bathe in the thermal hot springs nearby.

THE REGION: 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!

WHAT TO DO:

Regarded as the birthplace of the Renaissance, Tuscany boasts an important cultural heritage. The region attracts families looking to relax and soak up 'la dolce vita'. Its a magnet for hikers, cyclists, photographers and connoisseurs of food and fine wine. All of the towns of the region are rich with art exhibits, music and theatre events.

Exploring - the famous villages of Montalcino, Pienze and Montepulciano all a short drive away and 'must see' for tourists. Siena, Florence, Arrezo, Perugia, the Coast, Assisi all good day trips.

Cuisine - So many great restaurant choices, some within walking distance - this is a food and wine heaven. Some of Italy's best vineyards are close by for wine tasting and tours.

Designer Shopping - Visit Siena's fashion boutiques or several discount designer outlets.

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.
