This delightful property is located in the heart of the Montepulciano wine region south of the city of Siena. This area is known as Le Crete Sienese and is characterized by its rich clay earth - the famous terra di Siena - and tall cypress trees. One of the most photographed areas of Tuscany.
The original structure is in typical Tuscan rustic style - with terra cotta floors, exposed clay brick walls, wooden beams and original frescoes but restored to the luxury and comfort you look for on holiday. Dating back to the 17th centiry, the original owners converted this building to be their summer retreat. Between 1995 and 2000, the current owners undertook a massive restoration to bring it up to what it is today. Large spacious common rooms, en suite bathrooms and lots of outdoor living areas are what you will find now. Falco Nero is part of a wine estate in the Montepulciano area of Tuscany. They also make their own olive oli, wild boar salamis, pecorino cheese and grappa. White truffles grow on their property and it is possible to arrange a truffle hunt during the autumn months when they are in season. The owner offers complimentary wine tours with tastings and guided walks through their vineyards and olive groves. Your stay at Falco Nero will leave you breathless and relaxed.
