These apartments are part of a seventeenth-century hamlet, made up of a noble villa, a church and a small group of houses. All around you will only see the splendid countryside.
Indeed a large farming estate surrounded this hamlet back in the seventeenth century, and today it still does. The estate covers more than a thousand hectares (2470 acres) on the hills near Siena. The area is part of the "Crete Senesi", a protected area rich of historical and natural beauties. All around you will see low argillaceous hills that are spread out like waves in the ocean as far as meets the eye. You will be in the middle of the most famous and reproduced Tuscan scenery in paintings!
Here every season of the year carries its fascinating trait: in spring, hues of light green cover the hills and lawns; in summer, the golden color of wheat takes over the hills; and during fall, thousands of swarthy and dark green shades dominate.
The farming estate organically grows wheat used for the making of pasta, fodder for its own livestock, the Chianina cattle breed, and extra-virgin olive oil.
Both villa and hamlet have been renovated into vacation houses; a process which respected the former architectural structure of the buildings made of stones and red bricks.
The guests of the farmhouse share a large swimming pool, a tennis court and a children's playground.
As you arrive, look around. You will feel as if time had slowed down. There is no traffic and there are no cars, if not your own. Here everything is beautiful, tidy and peaceful, and it looks like it has never changed. There will be a reception with staff at your disposal for your every need. At the reception is also available a large lounge with sofas and a fireplace, as well as a computer connected to the Internet.
The little church of the hamlet has been consecrated and masses are held every Sunday at 11 a.m.
You will have at your disposal plenty of outdoor space. Swimming pool, tennis court and children's playground are located at approximately 50 meters (yard) from the apartments, in a panoramic position.
Once lying in the sun, your eyes will meet only lawns, trees and flowers. A view of low and green hills will unfold before you. The air is fresh, clean and filled with the smell of flowers and herbs. You will be able to spend long and pleasant hours outdoors accompanied either by your friends, a book in hands, or a glass of good Tuscan wine.
Next to the pool that is a large playground where your children will have fun playing free. They will find it equipped with swingers, slides and a sandbox.
