IL CIPRESSO HIDEAWAY APARTMENT WITH WONDERFUL VIEWS AND POOL

Sarteano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2

Il Cipresso is part of the “Colline Toscane” portfolio. This charming apartment sits on a hilltop and offers a chance to escape from it all. It is situated in the lower part of a beautiful Tuscan villa with uninterrupted views of the villages and lakes of the Val di Chiana valley which abuts the Val d'Orcia, a UNESCO world heritage site in Southern Tuscany.

The location is ideal to discover the most beautiful corners of Tuscany and Umbria. There are many private patios and terraces around the property, complete with loungers for sunbathing and garden seats for enjoying the views from sunrise to sunset and beyond. Enjoy alfresco dining and BBQs (wood supplied) in your own garden.

Relax in the sunbathing terrace; cool yourself in the large hot tub surrounded by the olive grove (especially in the cooler months). Situated in the garden next door you can enjoy 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! Try the kitchen garden full of organic vegetables and a wide variety of fruit trees which are just waiting for you to pick them!

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! This property will make an ideal romantic gateway for two.

Il Cipresso is an independent apartment located in the lower part of a beautiful Tuscan villa set on the hillside with his own private garden. The villa was recently furbished to a very high standard. The main part of the house is used by the owners.

The apartment is furnished to a Tuscan style and consists of all the modern comforts to ensure a carefree and relaxing home environment. The apartment consists of: a large open-plan sitting room with french doors opening onto the patio; a new fully equipped kitchen and an oak dining suite for up to 6 persons; a double bedroom with a king size bed and a large bathroom with shower. The living area consists of a 32” screen TV, DVD player, DVD library, library, WIFI radio, free WIFI throughout the house and two comfortable sofas one of which can be converted into a double bed.

Eating out and visiting different wineries are a couple of the many things to consider in this beautiful area. Most guests after arrival are content to stay and sip wine on the terraces admiring the stunning views and soaking up the sun.

There is a short walk to shops, bars and some excellent restaurants. There is a thriving market in the piazza every Friday morning with kind and friendly locals.

Bathing in the village's natural swimming pools, walking and biking (bicycles are available from the owners), horse riding and golfing in Panicarola are just some of the holiday opportunities.

What a wonderful base camp in southern Tuscany. Beautiful, clean, comfortable and our hosts delightful. We arrived to find homemade cake, plum jam, wine & goodies in the fridge and a garden full of tomatoes to die for.. We enjoyed day trips to Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona and other attractions during our 9 day stay. I would stay again in a heartbeat & recommend it highly. Try to stay as long as you can & enjoy the hot tub & pool.

Dream Holiday Apartment

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 4, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
The apartment was stunning: smart, spotlessly clean, well-appointed, and beautiful, besides being set in a lovely and extensive garden. The owners, Donna and Serge, were wonderful - welcoming, always helpful, generous and charming.
The listing mentioned the view, but it was even better than we expected. Although the listing was accurate, it didn't convey the thoughtfulness with which the owners had considered all that we might need and then provided for us.
We were welcomed with an assortment of local groceries and fresh toiletries on arrival, and were looked after well throughout our stay.
The bookshelves were overflowing with an immense assortment of English DVDs, and books both in English and Italian.
Our only regret was that we had not booked for a longer stay. Not only would we recommend this to our friends, we'll book up again for certain!
Our interests include local history and buildings, wild flowers and landscapes. Not only were we well provided for in each of these areas, but Donna and Serge gave us guidance on what we might like to see, for example the wild cyclamen, the mists over the lake, the fascinating mediaeval towns - wonderful.

Impressive apartment and great owners

This accommodation provides a relaxed and fun holiday base but also a place of retreat. From the moment you arrive, the sheer beauty of your surroundings is impressive and the location provides a panoramic view of Tuscany which is breathtaking whatever the season. The gardens are a credit to the creativity and tireless work of Serge and Donna.

The accommodation in the basement of the owners home is very well appointed. It has been decorated and furnished to a very high standard and Donna’s attention to detail is excellent throughout. I know this would now be our first choice for accommodation in Sarteano.

I have deliberately left the best to last and that’s the owners themselves. From the moment we arrived, they quite naturally offered us a kindness and generosity of spirit you rarely find. Throughout our stay we felt we were looked after and cared for by the whole family, as you would do when good friends visit. What more could you ask for on holiday?

Our Stay in Il Cipresso

  • Submitted: Apr 24, 2013

I phoned Donna (the owner) an hour or so before arriving. She was most assuring and welcoming, offering to give every assistance to find the property.
On arrival we were greeted warmly and shown our accommodation.
The apartment is beautiful and comprises the whole basement of a hillside villa. The furniture, decor and level of equipment are excellent. There are hundreds of DVD's and books. The apartment is very clean, fully equipped and well maintained. I know the area quite well, but I have never seen such stunning views of this part of Tuscany. The food and wines of the area are renowned, but Donna and her husband introduced us to local produce, cooking and people I will never forget.
My visit was at Easter and I had intended to do a fair bit of sightseeing. Florence and Rome are easy drives from Sarteano, and even easier by train. I only managed to tear myself away from the beautiful garden of the accommodation on a handful of occasions to go up to Arezzo and a day out on the west coast. Donna's husband Serge has created a heavenly oasis of a garden, with terraces and vistas to enjoy for hours. Nothing was too much trouble for the owners and they looked after every possible thing you could need. It was so hard to leave both the beautiful house and the Guidarelli family.

Colline Toscane Apartments are nestled on the hills of Sarteano, a lovely medieval village of Etruscan origin within the province of Siena. Situated between the Val di Chiana valley on the east and the famous Val d'Orcia on the west, Sarteano is deep in the fairytale landscape of Tuscany. The village offers over half a dozen eateries as well as banks, italian bars and all the shops you should need. There are also a number of wineries, patio restaurants and cafes within the historical centre, giving you plenty of choice when you want to relax. The apartments are conveniently situated from the village, a 10 minutes walk will get you there! Sarteano, which is a short distance from the Autostrada del Sole (A1), is handily placed between Rome and Florence. The cities of Perugia, Siena, Arezzo, Orvieto, as well as smaller places of historic and artistic interest such as Pienza, Cortona, Montalcino and San Gimignano are within easy reach of the village. Of local interest are the thermal resorts of San Casciano dei Bagni and Rapolano Terme, famous for their waters since Roman times, and the hot springs of Bagno Vignoni with its ancient Roman bath. A 30 minute drive to the East will get you to the cute little ferry boats of Lake Trasimeno (visible from the many balconies and garden), so take a picnic, explore the little islands and swim from their beaches!
