TRADITIONAL FARMHOUSE WITH STUNNING VIEWS LESS THAN 10 MINS FROM SIENA CENTRE

Siena Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedroom, 3 Bathroom Villa with Unlimited Views of Tuscan Countryside.

This beautifully renovated rustic villa is only 10 minutes’ drive from the heart of Siena. Built in the 1500’s, Belvedere (beautiful view) is situated on a remote hilltop with breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside with vineyards and olive trees in the immediate vicinity. It’s near enough for ready access to Siena yet remote enough for your private piece of Tuscan tranquility.

Siena is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities in Europe with an absolutely stunning cathedral Il Duomo. The hospital of Santa Maria della Scala is said to be the oldest hospital in the world. The Piazza del Campo is a beautiful sight any day of the year but transforms to its medieval state for the famous Palio di Siena every 2nd of July & 16th August. Each contrada or section of the city battles it out for the famous bareback horserace around city centre.

Belvedere is also a fantastic location to base yourself for day trips to Florence and many other towns dotted around Tuscany such as San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. A trip to the abbey Monte Oliveto Maggiore for evening vespers followed by dinner in the quaint walled village of Buonconvento is highly recommended. Further afield are classic medieval towns such as Cortona, Perugia and Assisi and to the west, the Isle of Elba is a day or overnight trip.

Alternatively you can escape for days on end with only a few minutes’ drive or a 15 minute walk to the local shops for a coffee, an ATM or to top up the essentials – some local bread & milk, a bottle of Chianti, some fresh pasta or an array of regional cheeses. There are plenty of supermarkets only a short drive away if you are really stocking up or if you don’t feel like cooking there are many options for dining in the surrounding Colonna San Marco, San Rocco, Costalpino or in Downtown Siena.

Closer to home, points of interest are Certano (the estate villa), where you can pick up a bottle of Chianti produced in the surrounding vineyard and the monastry – Eremo di Lecceto where you can attend evening vespers.

Traditional Tuscan architecture, characterized by terracotta floors & exposed wooden beams is common throughout, including the three spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. A dining table that seats 12 will be the centre of some great feasts and memories or you can choose to eat around the more cosy kitchen table. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, glassware & ceramics, enabling you to cook up your own meals if you so desire.

Come and enjoy the 'Dolce far niente' - the sweetness of doing nothing by grabbing a book, cooking up a meal & playing some cards. Alternatively use this as a base for countless day trips to explore Tuscany & beyond.

Hi I'm Carola and I'm a citizen of the world! My dad is Italian and my mum is Uruguayan and I have had the luck to live and experience life in both countries. Even though my mum won't be too happy about it, Italy has always been my preferred place in the world.

I currently live in Dubai with my husband Adam who shares the same passion for the Italian life (and food!) and with whom I have had the pleasure to bring back to a new life my dad's villa/farmhouse in Siena. Everything here has belonged to my family for centuries and have been either preserved or restored with love. We cherish the idea that we can share this heritage with someone new. Open all drawers, leaf through the books and feel at home. I only ask you to treat the place and its odds and ends as if it was your own cause this place truly represents a piece of my heart.

Carola & Adam purchased this farmhouse in 1512

This property and most of its furniture has been in my family for generations. We cherish the idea that we can share this heritage with other people while we are living abroad, giving the opportunity for others to experience the beauty of this piece of Tuscany.

Open all drawers, leaf through the books and feel at home. I only ask you to treat the place and its odds and ends as if it was your own cause this place truly represents a piece of my heart.

For me it's the view from the kitchen that i never tire from, although there are spectacular views in every direction. Many a good meal with a bottle of wine has been enjoyed whilst soaking up this view. It's difficult to do proper justice to the place with photos alone. You really need to spend a few days to take it all in.

Beautiful Belvedere

  • Submitted: Nov 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
I recently enjoyed a week at the wonderful Belvedere. Perfectly located in the rolling hills of Tuscany, the house is within easy driving distance of a number of towns and villages, as well as the historic city of Siena. This homely residence combines perfect Tuscan charm with excellent facilities, providing a fully equipped kitchen, beautiful dining area and large ensuite bedrooms uniquely designed. The owners were extremely helpful and went out of their way to ensure an enjoyable stay. Highly recommended.

A Wonderful Experience

We stayed 4 nights and would have enjoyed more. Traveling with 2 other couples, we all agreed that our time at Belvedere was perhaps the best part of our whole trip. Having traveled through Sorrento, the Amalfi Coast and Rome the previous week, we eagerly relaxed, played cards, did laundry and cooked pizza twice in the outdoor pizza oven. We drank wine from the grapes of the surrounding vineyard and enjoyed the enchanting Tuscan landscape from windows and patio. Gianna, who manages the house, was helpful as we learned our way around. On our first night, she prepared her amazing lasagna with homegrown tomatoes. We felt like family. We made day trips to Siena, Florence, and other smaller castles. Then we came home to Belvedere, sat at the grand table, laughed, ate, drank and enjoyed each other's company.
The house was lovely. It had everything we needed, as well as character and history. The vineyard wine was the best we tasted in Italy. Carola, the owner, was so helpful and full of ideas when I corresponded with her before the trip. There is much we have yet to do. I'd love to go back.

Beautiful Farmhouse in Tuscany

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 18, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We spent a perfect week in August in this beautiful farmhouse outside of Siena. Though only a 10 minute drive from the city, it was like being miles away from civilization. The tiny hamlet is accessible by a gravel road, and the house itself is off a long driveway bordered by cypress trees. There is a 360 degree view of the surrounding valley, and it overlooks vineyards and olive groves, with a beautiful sunset every night. There are no sounds other than crickets and some barking dogs from the valley below. The house comfortably held 3 generations of our family. The caretaker living downstairs was wonderful, and non-intrusive. There are dozens of beautiful hill towns within an hour drive, and we would recommend Pienza, San Gimignano and Bagno Vignoni. For a nice dinner in a non-touristed town, be sure to visit Il Toppo in San Donato. We also cooked at home several times, mostly because the fresh bounty from the vegetable and herb garden was irresistible. The kitchen is fully stocked, and there is a large dining table in the central room (we had friends over one night and were able to comfortably sit 10 people). Don't forget to visit the main villa down the road, where you can buy olive oil and wine from the estate; and ask for a tour of the villa frescoes and the 7th century church. This is a perfect base for exploring Tuscany, or simply for taking in the view of the peaceful countryside.

The Villa was our most favorite place to stay on our recent trip to Italy. The countryside is beautiful and so peaceful. I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a Villa and I would definitely stay here again. The keeper of the Villa was very pleasant and helpful and made our stay comfortable.
