In the outskirts of the village of Asciano, situated in the heart of the famous 'Crete Senesi' and placed in a sunny and panoramic position, we find the small house PIEVE DI SANT'IPPOLITO. The property is composed by a manor house, where the owner family live, an annex available for our guests, and a really ancient church the 'Pieve di Sant'Ippolito' which origins date back to the 4th Century AC. Above the church altar there is a large fresco ascribed to the painter Giacomo Pacchiarotti of Siena, with distinct landmarks of the Umbrian school of the renowned Pinturicchio and Raffaello. On the 13th of August, in the anniversary of St. Ippolito in the church is celebrated mass.
All around the buildings a wide garden equipped with table and chairs to eat 'al fresco' and a beautiful swimming pool (size m. 13x8, depth m. 1,20-2,10, somewhat round, with waterfall and a three seats whirlpool bath), to be shared sometimes with the owners.
The refined furnishing and the large equipment of the house (satellite TV, barbecue, microwave, washing machine, dish washer, iron, mosquito nets, burglar alarm and Internet access) will guarantee a comfortable and relaxing holiday. Possibility to rent mountain bikes. Moreover, respecting the need of energy saving, the house is endowed with solar panels.
