Overview

Sarteano Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

8 bedrooms, 8 ensuite bathrooms - sleeps a max 17 adults

Villa Le Querce is a beautiful farmhouse, renovated to the highest standards in a unique position of the Val d'Orcia, now a UNESCO world heritage site. It is exquisitely furnished and has 8 large bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. Situated on a small rise with extensive manicured lawns, it commands breathtaking views. The large private pool (18 x 6) is located slightly higher and has a large patio and an equally stunning panorama over this beautiful area of Tuscany, including the magnificent Monte Amiata. The farmhouse is surrounded by its own private property of 70 hectares consisting of fields, an orchard and a wood through which, as of the summer of 2007, there will be marked walks.

This is a beautiful farmhouse in a unique position commanding spectacular and uncontaminated views over the Val d'Orcia. Close to some of the best wine-producing areas in Italy, Brunello di Montalcino and Chianti, it is also within easy reach of other Tuscan beauty spots: Pienza, Siena, the spas of Chianciano and S. Casciano Bagni, Monte Amiata, Montepulciano and Radicofani. For golf enthusiasts there is the beautiful 18-hole Lamborghini golf course just 30Km distant at Panicale on the Lake Trasimeno. It is definitely a luxury holiday home, exquisitely furnished with beautifully manicured and extensive grounds and a large private pool.

The large swimming pool, which is 18m x 6m, and being situated slightly higher than the farmhouse has even more spectalur views, has an oxygen generated filter and therefore has no chlorine.

We have cleared a beautiful walk in the woods behind the house, up on the Mount Cetona. This walk is sign-posted all the way round and is a lovely way to end the day.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We all loved the villa, it was better than we had imagined and hoped for.

It was fantastic, well equipped in extremely peaceful, beautiful surroundings. The pool was in a wonderful, elevated position where you could see for miles.

We put the four teenagers in the annex which proved to be a great hit, they could be as loud as they wanted without disrupting the peacefulness in the main building - perfect.

One of our party managed to video 12 wild boar taking an early evening stroll through the massive gardens - now that's something special.

Many thanks, Karin, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the villa to anyone who makes enquiries. (Debra Ziton, August 2006).

Birthday Villa

  • 5 of 5

We all had a wonderful time. Graziella was fabulous. I did go on to Sicily for the second week, but would just as readily have stayed at Villa Le Querce for the entire period. I want to thank Karin for her welcome and all her help. I am so glad I found this property on the website ! Thanks again.

Outstanding family villa

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the most wonderful week here. It was the perfect villa for a big group with so much space indoors as well as extensive grounds and fabulous swimming pool. It could easily accommodate 3 families as it has an annex next to the main house too. Having stayed in many villas in Tuscany this is without doubt the most brilliant villa for a big group/family. It is located in the heart of some of the most wonderful towns in Tuscany, up on a hill so never too hot. The property was clean and beautifully done up inside with a modern fresh feel whilst retaining an old style Tuscan farmhouse feel. The Owner Karin was so accommodating and was great to communicate with pre and post holiday. We would all recommend this villa to anyone wanting the perfect Tuscan country villa experience.

We would love to come back to this villa we had the most perfect holiday here.

We are coming back

  • 5 of 5

Our vacation was just fantastic and we (and all our friends)have a wonderful souvenir of the house, the area and the local people.

It is a really nice house, ideal for a large party like ours.

Everybody had space (separate bathrooms, etc.). The living areas are big and very nice. The house is altogether not sophisticated, but very pleasant and the grounds and pool were just great.

We are really thinking of coming back and spending some more time at Villa Le Querce.
