Podere Oliveto (240 sqm) is as close to the universal dream of a perfect Tuscan country retreat as could be found. Set amongst this haven of natural tranquillity and beauty, surrounded by 25 hectares of vineyards producing the marvellous Brunello wine, these are charming stone-built houses, approximately 11 kms from Montalcino, that have been lovingly restored.Podere Oliveto consists of the main farmhouse and a delightful adjacent cottage annexe for four people.Both houses are perfectly restored to a very high standard keeping all the original features, and using, wherever possible, original materials.The properties are elegantly and tastefully furnished with a comfortable mix of antique, modern and traditional Tuscan country styles.A splendid swimming pool (18x5 m), set in terraced lawns, enjoys breathtaking views, and a delightful gazebo make the grounds utterly magical. Next to the buildings there is a lovely covered loggia with an original pizza oven, and BBQ.This is furnished with table and chairs, perfect for alfresco dining on long summer evenings.In the garden, there is a 3rd small two- floor building with a modern gym room, Jacuzzi and sauna at the guests' disposal. Satellite TV is provided in both houses.The property is reached by approx. 500 m of unmade track.Montalcino, the nearest village, is noted not only for its "Brunello" but also for its Rocca dating back XIV Century. Siena is approx. 50 km away.
