About the property

Cosy cottage in beautiful Tuscany. Accomodates comfortably 4 persons.

Situated on top of a hill, only 20 min by car outside the charming city of Siena. The cottage is emerging in a beautiful forest perfect for biking and hiking. Perfect for relaxing holidays or for a working context. Wi-fi connection.

A picturesque mosaic of fields and vineyards are breath-taking panoramas. Antique churches, castles, mansions and wineries are typical scenery. Originally I'm Norwegian, but I've been based in Italy for the last twenty years. My home is an authentic Tuscan 'cottage' being part of other rural houses in a classical old Tuscan hamlet.

The peace and quiet are for sure the characteristics of this place. If you love the nature you will definitely love my home. The area is perfect for who enjoys biking, hiking, or just have a nice walk in the forest exploring the surroundings.

I have two professional mountain-bikes for your use €10/bike/day.

Or go to a fresh-water river just a 20 min drive from here and take a swim. It's really a nice place just for a picnic and some relaxing hours.

During the summer-months my area offers a a lot of different happenings&festivals;

The evocative and nostalgic medieval festival of Monteriggioni (19km).

The festival of street-play in honor of the Italian Renaissance poet Boccaccio in Certaldo (40km).

The enchanting Abbey of San Galgano (34 km) where concerts take place within the abbey, and with the stars as a roof (the roof is not actually there anymore!) giving the musical experience quite a special atmosphere.

The special edition of Wine&Jazz in Montalcino (60km) in July.

The colorful Tarot Garden in Capalbio (130km) where the French artist Niki de Saint de Phalle created large statues of the 22 Major Arcana.

Other visits of interest are the local ecological markets like the Mercatale. Every third Saturday of the month you find it in Stigliano (16km). Local cheese and other products from ecological local farms.

Or for instance visit one of the many local wineries for wine-tasting.

There are really many interesting and nice things to enjoy in the area. One of the most spectacular experiences to live here is the famous horse-race 'Il Palio', a traditional medieval race that takes place in the central square of Siena, twice during the summer, the 2nd of July and the 16th of August.

Many beautiful places are worth a visit in this area all year through, Siena (20km), San Gimignano (30km), Volterra (45km), Montepulciano (80km) and Montalcino (60km) or even less known places but as beautiful Monteriggioni (20km), Radicondoli (23km), Casole d'Elsa (20km) and Pienza (72km).

If you are looking for total relaxation at a spa with hot springs to escape your stress and enjoy nature, only 35 km from Siena you find San Giovanni Terme in Rapolano.

About Lene

Originally I am from Norway, but I've lived in Italy for the last twenty years.

My home is an authentic Tuscan 'cottage', being part of other rural houses in a typical old Tuscan 'borgo'.

If you are in search of nature, quiet&peace my home will definitely satisfy you.

The house is set in a forest on top of a hill with beautiful scenery of the Tuscan countryside if you explore the surroundings.

If you decide to come to my home I can assure you that you will go back home with a special and unique experience. There is a reason to it that a Norwegian found it's home here, and I'll be more than pleased to share it with you !

What makes this cottage unique

The property has a marvelous terrace and a private garden.
