San Giovanni d'Asso Apartment Rental Photos and Description
Le Crete, Siena
Located in one of the most picturesque areas of Tuscany, this farmhouse has been lovingly restored from a corn storage barn to a luxury home by the kind and warm owners who finished this labor of love. It is large house that can be converted to two luxury apartments connected with a single internal door on each floor, making it ideal for a family gathering or a group of friends. Beautiful grounds and unbelievable views of the Siena countryside.
You are surrounded only by olive trees, fields and the sounds of nature yet are only a five minute walk to a romantic village with an ancient castle. While the town is quite intimate, it has all the necessities that you need to settle in for a long stay, including a coffee bar, two truffle and wine bars, pharmacy, post office, supermarket, bank and characteristic shops such as a butcher and baker, a gourmet restaurant along with weekly markets and a Tartuffo museum. A recent article in THE NEW YORK TIMES featured this town and museum and has brought tourists to this sleepy town, but your road to the house meanders through a small wooded forest and opens up to your home situated within olive trees and meadows for complete privacy should you desire it. You have many things to do in this area, exploring the small villages of Montisi, Asciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, San Quirico d'Orcia, Buonconvento, Bagno Vignoni or easy day trips to Siena, Lake Trasimeno, Assisi, Perugia, Florence, San Gimignano, Bormarzo, Mount Amiata or the Maremma.
