IL CASTAGNO

Sarteano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Colline Toscane Apartments set amidst an amazing panorama and are in a perfect location to experience a relaxing vacation in Southern Tuscany.

The Quercia and Castagno are cut into a hill some 600m above sea level with uninterrupted views of the local village of Sarteano, an ancient medieval village famous for its renaissance castle and churches, the surrounding villages, (some as far as 50 kilometers from the apartments) and the lakes:Trasimeno, Chiusi and Montepulciano on the Val di Chiana valley, which abuts the Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site in Southern Tuscany.

The apartments sit just off the village in an exclusive residential area and next to the owners' facilities. Il CASTAGNO and La QUERCIA are part of a newly built two-storey villa with terraces on each floor. Each apartment enjoys its own private garden and facilities with access to a lush small wood consisting of oak, walnut and chestnut trees over a sloping terrain. Experience al fresco dining on the terrace watching a Tuscan sunset and our NEW terraced “Panoramic Pool” (3.5m x7mx 1.2h) with incredible turquoise water, a solarium with plenty of sunbeds, loungers and umbrellas but most of all with the most amazing views! Guests are also welcomed to use the hot tub, on another terrace and garden facilities next door (excellent especially in the cooler months)! The hot tub accommodates up to 8 persons and nests in a beautifully kept garden with lawn, flowers and aromatic plants. Soak the Tuscan sun on the terrace surrounded by the olive grove or relax under the vine covered pergola. A well-stocked kitchen garden full of organic vegetables and a wide variety of fruit trees are also at your disposal!

The 2 apartments can be rented together to accommodate a max of 8 adults+2 children.

We also have 1 bedroom apartment: “THE CIPRESSO HIDEAWAY” Property N. 895389 next door, which is an ideal romantic gateway for two and shares the same facilities.

Visit Cortona, (Under the Tuscan Sun’s book), Florence, Siena, Perugia, Orvieto, Assisi, Arezzo, Rome. Explore the unique towns of Pienza, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Montalcino (Brunello) and enjoy their famous wines. Visit the monasteries of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and Sant'Antimo (where the English Patient was filmed). Or simply relax in your private garden!

Guestbook comments from the owner
We've been to Tuscany, but this apartment has us hooked. The landlord welcomed us with homemade cakes and jams. The apartment is brand new (1year old) and very clean. All furnishings, crockery and household items are new. The apartment is stylishly furnished, beautiful curtains and beautiful paintings decorate the house and makes it very cosy, new towels and bath towels. In a multi-week stay there is a free "Between cleaning". The use of a Wirlpools (outdoors) at any time. The bathroom is modern and very clean. Even the kitchen, we have found in a perfect condition. Food for the arrival day, was made available by the owner.



Due to the slope of the apartment is a 3-sided balcony / terrace available. You can sit there all day long eating, sleeping and reading. The parking spaces are located directly in front of the house. The landlady is very friendly and courteous, she speaks perfect English and is trying to increase the service yet. From the price-performance ratio, we were pleasantly surprised. Very Highly recommended.

WIR WAREN BEGEISTERT

  • 5 of 5
Wir haben im Apartment Il Castagno 10 Nächte Urlaub gemacht und waren von Anfang an begeistert. Nachdem wir schon mehrere positive Reviews vor unserer Ankunft gelesen hatten waren unsere Erwartungen sehr hoch, aber sie wurden alle erfüllt oder sogar übertroffen.

Das Apartment ist gemütlich und ordentlich eingerichtet. Der Pool, Terasse und Jacuzzi sind sehr einladend zum entspannen, in der Sonne liegen und gleichzeitig den traumhaften Blick über das Tal zu genießen.

Als wir angekommen sind hat uns Donna, die Besitzerin, schon erwartet um uns mit Rotwein, Kuchen und Olivenöl zu begrüßen, sodass wir uns gleich wie zu Hause gefühlt haben. Danke für die herzliche Gastfreundschaft.

Wir waren schon öfter in der Toskana und in Sarteano und der Aufenthalt in Il castagno hat uns von allen am besten gefallen, wir werden definitiv wiederkommen.

ENTSPANNTER URLAUB IN DER TOSKANA

  • 5 of 5
Dank der Gastfreundschaft von Donna und Fay hatten wir einen wunderschönen Urlaub in Sarteano. Sie bieten mehr als man als Gast erwarten darf. Ob der Begrüßungskuchen, der leckere Wein oder das Gemüse aus Donna´s Garten....das ist nicht selbstverständlich.
Die Bilder des Anwesens halten das was sie versprechen. Die Wohnung ist bestens ausgestattet und sehr gepflegt. Es scheint so als wäre die Anlage erst kürzlich modernisiert worden. Uns hat es jedenfalls sehr gut gefallen. Gastgeber und Nachbarn sind völlig unaufgeregt und sehr hilfsbereit. Wir fühlten uns sofort heimisch und gut aufgehoben. Sarteano hat sich als gut gelegener Ausgangspunkt für unsere Ausflüge entpuppt, so dass wir recht spontan entscheiden konnten, was wir unternehmen.

AN IMMACULATE APARTMENT IN AN AMAZING LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic comfortable apartment in a perfect location to explore Tuscany. Upon our arrival we met the lovely Donna who showed us around, and we were greeted by the beautiful views of the sun setting over the Tuscan countryside. During our stay, Donna gave us homemade peach reserve, olive oil, plenty of red wine from her uncle's vineyard, fresh fruit from her garden, and an amazing tiramisu. The apartment is clean, has everything you need and we truly felt at home during our 8 night stay. There is even a traditional wood-fire barbecue. Donna recommended some great local restaurants in Sarteano. We were sad to leave as it was such a lovely place. We would definitely recommend Il Castagno to anyone wanting to explore Tuscany.

BEAUTIFUL, SPOTLESS, GREAT LOCALE

  • 5 of 5
Il Castagno is the lower of the two apatments located in the Colline Toscano villa in a quiet neighborhood high up the hill from the town of Sarteano. A three minute drive will take you directly to the centre of town where you will find all of the conveninences including a bakery, restaurants, supermarkets & fresh pasta shop. I stayed there with my sister and 88 yr. old mother and we found it to be a wonderful experience. The first floor apartment was easy for my mother to navigate once we walked up from the car. The apartment was well-equipped with everything you will need and Donna was so generous w/leaving supplies in the refrigerator along with a cake, cereal, fruit, pasta, home-made wine & olive oil from their garden! All made for a wonderful welcome basket. Donna is an easy host as she wants you to feel that the apartment is your home & offers a nice bialance of making herself available whilst also giving you your privacy. From every window is a gorgeous view of the valley and the pool/gardens offer the same. I miss that view! Lastly, it is in a prime location within easy driving distances to many of the old Medieval villages that make up the region. We visited Pienza (beautiful, flat, accessible, good shopping, restaurants & many artisans to visit), Sienna, Salcheto winery outside of Montepulciano and attended a wedding at the Monteverdi Hotel/Resort in Castiglioncello del Trinoro. Worth the 7.7 km drive for dinner or a drink at sunset....you will not be disappointed but will certainly be in awe. Thank you Donna for a lovely stay and we will cetainly drop by or stay with you again when we revisit the region.
