Why Iris Kunz chose Seggiano
The extinct vulcano "Monte Amiata" and its surroundings are very special. For people who are in search for rest and for nature lovers this part of Tuscany is a dream. It is a place where it feels like the clocks tick a little slower. Tourism hasn´t overrun yet the medieval villages. The Tuscan people have formed an incredibly beautiful landscape mosaic. This is one of the reasons why the valley "Val D´Orcia" became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2004. Wonderful little towns like Montalcino or Montepulciano offer vine tasting in hidden cellars and narrow streets. The famous sheep´s milk cheese "Pecorino" can be tasted and purchased in Pienza (UNESCO World Heritage Site). Beside culinary consumption you can relax in thermal baths (Saturnia, Bagno Filippo). On "Monte Amiata" you also find a charming region for winter sports from December until February with 12 ski lifts and 13 km slopes.
What makes this House unique
Podere Fortunato is located in the middle of the olive grove on a gentle hillside but only 3 km from the small town of "Seggiano". The little village offers a bar, two restaurants and a supermarket. More shops and facilities can be found in "Castel del Piano" which is about 20 min. by car. Around the house you can enjoy the sun at any time of the day. The south-west location allows an unforgettable view of the sunset in the Tuscan hills every day.

Amazing Location and Home
Unfortunately we needed to leave our time at this home due to a family emergency back home. What time we did have the home is as beautiful as the online listing if not more. If you are looking for a serene, quiet, and amazingly beautiful property, this is it.
Also, a special note to thank the property managers, Uran and Evelina. Upon learning of the news requiring us to depart early, they were extremely kind and helpful in thinking about the best way to get home. We sincerely appreciate their kindness.
Loved the view from the terrace and the bar in the swimming pool area.
The view is stunning. The house is beautiful and the other areas are easily accessible. I definitely recommend staying here and will again if I have a chance to come back!
A wonderful place to stay in beautiful Tuscany!
Our stay at Podere Fortunato was all that we expected and more! The setting of the property is ideal, the house was tidy and well equipped, and the pool was an added bonus. Since there were 3 couples, and the third bathroom is downstairs and not in a bedroom, that was a minor inconvenience, but did not deter from the authentic feel of the house and surrounding area. The location near Seggiano was nice for doing day trips to Bagno Vignoni, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, the Mediterranean coast, and other towns in the surrounding regions. A written guide to the area is provided by the owners and we found this to be very useful. Our questions were answered beforehand and the caretaker was available to answer questions that came up during our stay. Walking the roads and hills by the house was inspiring and scenic! We highly recommend this property and would definitely stay here again!
Ein wunderschönes Haus in traumhafter Lage
Wir hatten eine ganz tolle Woche in Seggiano. Das Haus liegt traumhaft in den Hügeln der Toskana. Die Ausstattung ist TOP.
Die Buchung / Abwicklung war unkompliert so wie man sich das wünscht. Der Pool war auch unseren Kindern warm genug und sie haben diesen ausgiebig genutzt.
Entspannung auf einem traumhaften Anwesen in der Toskana
Von Anfang an haben wir uns als fünfköpfige Familie auf diesem Anwesen überaus wohlgefühlt. Die Eigentümer haben hier, in der Abgeschiedenheit der Südtoskana, ein kleines Paradies geschaffen. Uns hat einfach alles begeistert: das schöne Natursteinhaus, die geschmackvolle Ausstattung, vor allem aber der große private Pool mit Außenbar. Erholung für alle ist da vorprogrammiert. Auch die Tipps der Eigentümer haben wir geschätzt, z. B. Baden im nähen Flüsschen mit kleinem Wasserfall. Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und Restaurants gibt es in der Nähe (Auto). Perfekt!
The house is situated in a beautiful part of Tuscany. Small enchanted villages are located on rolling hills. From here you can start wonderful excursions into the surrounding area. Whether on the extinct volcano Monte Amiata, or to places such as Siena, Florence, Montalcino or Pienza, there is something for everyone. Nature lovers will just love it. Around the Monte Amiata, there are numerous thermal baths. Several hot springs (e.g. Saturnia, San Filippo, Bagno Vignoni) originate close of rivers and heat them, so you can swim there in the cold season. Ornithologists will be delighted by the diversity of species of birds. And wine lovers will enjoy the number of wineries in the Brunello wine region.
