CHARMING ANCIENT WATCHING TOWER NEAR MONTEPULCIANO AND VAL D'ORCIA - SIENA

Montepulciano Villa Rental Photos and Description

Charming countryhouse

The farmhouse has been completely restored in 2009, according to the principles of bio-architecture; employing building materials such as bricks, slaked lime, wood; walls have been insulated by using cork; the heating system works with bio-masses and solar cells provide hot water. Our hosts will thus enjoy a stay in a healthy structure which takes care for the environment granting at the same time all the comforts required.

The large open areas will allow a holiday in contact with nature and the opportunity of directly following the seasonal works. The swimming pool has been accurately planned to insert it in the rural landscape: this is the reason why it looks like the old local troughs which were often built for cows and sheeps. As well as the large pool 12 mt. long, there is a small one with shallow water, sittings and a little waterfall which is especially appropriate to relax. Decks chairs and sun umbrellas offer the guests comfortable seats to sunbathe and relax.

The farmhouse borders on a nature park in the Val d'Orcia, at Castelluccio di Pienza. Its location offers a panoramic view of two natural reserves: Pietraporciana and Lucciolabella. From the pool, nestled in an olive grove, guests enjoy a marvelous view of the entire valley. Organic farming methods, offering fruit, vegetables, extra virgin olive oil. Near the spas of Chianciano and Bagno Vignoni.

The structure of the farmhouse is complex, its oldest part consisting in the ancient tower that guarded Castelluccio. From the windows of the residence guests may enjoy a magnificent view of the entire Val di Chiana, and from the road into a lush park of the Val d'Orcia guests may catch sight of Monte Amiata. The farmhouse was totally renovated in 2009 in bioarchitecture style (bricks, lime putty, wood, terracotta, and cork). Heating from biomass systems and solar energy.

The farmhouse extends over 54 hectares along the hills between the Val d'Orcia and the Val di Chiana and uses certified organic farming methods. The olive and fruit trees (970 olive trees and 280 fruit trees) surround the villa and are located on a vast plain surrounded by fields, forests, and broom-covered furrows. Spacious outdoor areas where guests may enjoy direct contact with nature or take part in seasonal farming activities. The pool (June–mid-October) is perfectly part of the landscape, thanks to a careful use of materials and the shape of the pool that calls to mind old troughs. In addition to the pool (12 m long), there is another pool suited to relax, with low water, chairs, and small waterfall. Lounge chairs and umbrellas also offered. On a plain, under the shade of old maple trees, there is a large table and barbecue for meals outdoors, where to cook meat and seasonal vegetables. Guests will also have a rich breakfast (buffet) served in the large kitchen on the ground floor or under the pergola. From here you may reach the natural reserves of Pietraporciana and Lucciolabella, the towns of Monticchiello and Castiglioncello sul Trinoro, and the loveliest sites in the Val d'Orcia.

Comme il est difficile de partir!

  • 5 of 5
Nous avons passé une semaine formidable dans une maison de (nos) rêves. Isolée dans la campagne (route d'accès non bitumée), bien située en Toscane, mais aussi de Pérouse et Assise (Ombrie), dans une nature magnifique la maison est très agréable et très belle. Attention, on y est si bien qu'il est parfois difficile de la quitter pour des activités plus culturelles!!
Les propriétaires amoureux de leur maison sont présents quasi quotidiennement, vous reçoivent comme en famille et vous gâtent.
Merci Carla, Isolina, Franco, ...A bientôt!

The farmhouse is situated on the northern bound of the Natural and Artistic Park of the Val d'Orcia close to Castelluccio di Pienza. The territory is divided into three different municipalities: Pienza, Montepulciano and Chianciano Terme.

The farmhouse has a composite structure. Its oldest part is the watching tower with a scarp wall. It was built in the ancient times by the Republic of Siena. From the windows of the farm it is possible to enjoy the splendid view of Val di Chiana, and the country road which leads to the farm across the woods offers splendid views of the Valdorcia and Monte Amiata.

We have tried to create an ambience in which to spend a holiday in the country with any comfort they may require. It is our desire to make our guests feel at home, in a warm atmosphere. The independent areas both inside and outside are for those moments in which we do not like to be in a group and enjoy to be on one's own.
