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.
