La Casa di Bice is part of a typical Tuscan farmhouse renovated in 2006 and it is located in a large farmhouse divided into 8 apartments and each has a different owner. For this reason, even more, is required silence and privacy.
The house can accommodate up to 6 people. The farmhouse is located on top of a hill in the famous and beautiful landscape of the"Crete Senesi", 25 km from the beautiful city of Siena, 7 km from Asciano and 11 km from the town of Rapolano Terme, where you can relax being pampered by the sulphurous waters that flow at about 38 degrees.
The view is amazing: Siena to the West, Montalcino and Monte Amiata to the South and Rapolano Terme on the East side. A house in a paradise, an intimate and essential environment, where the silence is broken only by the sounds of nature, it is the ideal corner for those wishing to spend a peaceful, romantic holiday in a discreet, welcoming place. Its excellent geographical position permits short trips to interesting nearby places in Tuscany and Umbria.
