Welcome to La Ginestra, a newly renovated cottage nestled inside Tuscany’s most romantic landscape, southern Siena Province. It’s an exceptional independent house for two, offering privacy, a perfect location, and stellar views.

The house is located on a ridge between the Val d’Orcia and the Val di Chiana, Tuscany’s evocative and classically characteristic valleys. It overlooks distant and fascinating hill towns, the occasional vineyard, pasturing sheep, orchards and rolling hills. It sits on an acre and a half of olive and fruit trees and produces its own olive oil. In an undiscovered part of Tuscany, untrammeled and off the beaten path, yet close to Tuscany’s hot spots, La Ginestra is nestled halfway between Florence (1¾ hours) and Rome (2 hours), and is a little over an hour’s drive from Siena. La Ginestra is an easy drive away from some of Italy’s most revered sights, mostly through breathtaking countryside.

We produce our own olive oil that the 155 olive trees on the property present us with. The Leccino and Frantoio varietal olives, from which this fine Tuscan oil is made, are harvested from trees on our property located in the southern portion of Siena Province, on the outskirts of the tiny medieval village of Celle Sul Rigo, an hour's drive south of Siena. La Ginestra's 155 olive trees are located on a ridge between the Val D'Orcia and the Val di Chiana, two of Tuscany's most classically characteristic and beautiful areas. It lies twelve miles from the slopes of Monte Amiata, the extinct volcano that is the highest mountain in southern Tuscany, and which still fuels local thermal springs. The elevation at La Ginestra is 1740 feet, optimum altitude for the production of Siena Province's best, low acidity oils. Our 45+ year old trees have produced oil that is fruity with a peppery finish.

Our latest November harvest was transported to the local "frantoio", which produced our extra virgin, cold pressed and unfiltered oil. Early harvests such as this one enhance the quality of the oil, where a smaller yield is the result, and where quantity is sacrificed for quality.

La Ginestra, (named for the wonderfully fragrant yellow flowered plant that perfumes the Tuscan air all summer long), is also the home of Richard and Kelly Keir. It is situated near the thermal waters and baths of San Casciano dei Bagni. We fell in love with Italy in 2001 and began our search for a "heaven on earth." This quiet and undiscovered corner of Tuscany affords all we were looking for: wonderful local food and wine, unparalleled views of surrounding medieval hill towns, art and history galore and best of all, the opportunity to produce our own olive oil.

La Ginestra has one bedroom and bath, and is fully equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. There are terracotta floors throughout, and French doors in both the living room & bedroom that open to the outside, where you can enjoy a meal or a glass of wine on one of the two patios. The modern, sleek and fully equipped kitchen has a professional style stove, quartz counter tops, a dishwasher, and a full sized refrigerator with freezer. The bathroom’s shower features locally quarried travertine.

The house’s additional amenities include a fireplace, free Internet..(USB PORT ON YOUR DEVICE REQUIRED), There is also free WIFI access at the grocery store Bottega L'Appalto, a 2 minute walk from La Ginestra. The grocery store also offers our guests a 10% discount on all goods. Simply present the store with the business card they have given La Ginestra to receive your discount. On airport the network name is Appalto and the access password is: 18novembre2013 for the WIFI connection. There is also another free WIFI location at the restaurant Chiara di Luna..a 4 minute walk from La Ginestra. On airport click on chiaro di luna1 and then the password which is: chiarodiluna2013. An Italian cell phone is provided, CD player with CDs, TV, washer/dryer, barbeque, iron, ironing board and hair dryer. There are area maps & guidebooks on restaurants, museums, shopping, walking & biking trails, and sights.

There is an outdoor bathtub with hot and cold water with a spectacular view for you to enjoy while soaking in the tub.

The house offers privacy without isolation. The closest village, a five-minute walk, is the charming medieval hill town Celle Sul Rigo, pop. 400. It has been singled out for its wine, olive oil and beauty. Celle offers dining options that range from simple trattorias to full scale fine dining. The village also provides a bakery, butcher shop, pharmacy, grocery stores and a post office. There is also a Emergency Response facility with ambulance and first responder service a few blocks away.

San Casciano dei Bagni, a five-minute drive, is one of the area’s most beautiful hill towns. It is an elegant village that is a mecca for artists and writers who flock to its quiet environs. It has been acclaimed as one of the 'Borghi più belli d'Italia', one of the loveliest villages in Italy.

Nearby flow some 40 thermal springs fueled by Monte Amiata, an extinct volcano and southern Tuscany’s highest mountain. The area is famous for its lovely therapeutic spas and the villages built around them. San Casciano dei Bagni’s Fonte Verde is rated one of the top spas in Europe.

The entire area is a treasure trove of hill towns, art, and history. Wine and food range from the simple to the sublime. Walking trails abound. The region is dotted with Etruscan sites for history buffs. There are excellent roads for biking and trails for horseback riding. There is a wonderful public swimming pool in Sarteano, 20 minutes away.

Year round, the nearby villages hold festivals that include music, food, and medieval pageantry. Celle sul Rigo holds an annual Sagra dei Pici, celebrating the local hand made pasta.

La Ginestra’s elevation (530 meters or 1740 feet) keeps temperatures cooler in the summer than the towns found in the valleys below. The changing seasons all offer their own magic.

Train service is at Chiusi, 25 minutes away, a hub that connects to all parts of Italy. Car rental agencies are within one block of the station. Chiusi is in close proximity to the A1 autostrada to Rome, Florence, and Milan.

There is no smoking allowed inside La Ginestra.

About Richard Keir

We are a newly retired American couple from Carmel, CA. I worked at the Monterey Bay Aquarium for 27 years. I was on board from the beginning of its construction and really enjoyed my job.

My wife was in the restaurant business for many years, most recently as office manager at The Restaurant at Mission Ranch in Carmel. She also loved her job, but was ready to let go of the stress.

I speak English, Spanish and Italian.

Richard Keir purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Richard Keir chose San Casciano dei Bagni

We've been coming to Italy since 2001, when we first fell in love with it. We bought an apartment in Varenna, Lake Como in 2004 and La Ginestra in 2010. We love Lake Como but Tuscany offers an entirely different environment. We enjoy the history, culture, architecture, food and wine and above all, the warmth and generosity of the Tuscan people.

What makes this cottage unique

We bought La Ginestra after a long search for a cottage in the country. We finally found this independent house with beautiful, panoramic views. Its 155 olive trees, many fruit trees and acreage were just what we were looking for. It provides privacy with village amenities a five-minute walk away. Also the fireplace, landscaping and its 2 patios add charm. La Ginestra's proximity to Rome, Florence and Siena was of great importance in our decision to purchase it.

Reviews

Here are some of the things our guests are saying...

Casa la Ginestra is a real gem! This is by far the most comfortable vacation rental I have had the pleasure of staying at. The location is ideal; close to many charming villages but remote enough to offer peace and privacy. The house its self is superbly remodeled, offering simple yet elegant furnishings, a gorgeous and functional kitchen, and all the modern amenities that a discerning traveler could ask for. It's obvious that Casa la Ginestra's owner takes pride in this home, its location, and the warm and welcoming local populace. If you're looking for a home to rent in the Tuscany region then look no further. You won't be disappointed by Casa la Ginestra!

We arrived at La Ginestra to a beautiful sunset followed by a full moon. The property overlooks the Tuscan hill country and the on site olive grove. The house is very well appointed and private, perfect for a romantic getaway or for a honeymoon. It is a short walk into the small town for groceries or a nice lunch. We strongly recommend going to Daniella's in San Casciano Dei Bagni as well as Fighine, a small renovated Castle with a Michelin-starred restaurant (chef antontio previously at La Pergola in Rome). Amazing food at both locations! Also not to be missed is FontaVerde, the Tuscan resort and spa. La Ginestra was an amazing home, minutes away from so many beautiful, ancient towns...we thoroughly enjoyed our time there and we will return!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Exceeded expectations



Left on Jun 28, 2016 for a stay in Jun 2016

Arriving at the cottage took our breath away with the intimate private garden setting overlooking the olive orchard and beyond to the expanse of shouldering Tuscan hills and valleys and the bucolic villages, fields, and sheep farms. The cottage itself is tastefully decorated, clean, and well appointed with every convenience. Richard and his manager Maurizio together were attentive, prompt, and hospitable, providing detailed, helpful information on the cottage and the area sufficient to stay and explore for months. Within hours we were talking about coming back as soon as possible.

A wonderful honeymoon!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at La Ginestra for five days during our honeymoon. We had been searching for something in Tuscany that would be suitable and private for two people. La Ginestra is located in the most beautiful spot, perfect for us two. The view was incredible, we spent many mornings and evenings sitting outside listening to the nature around us and taking in the views. La Ginestra was also a great home base for many day trips (We visited Siena, Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza and more!). Richard provides great resources for local restaurants, recommended day trips, and a variety of things to do! La Ginestra was the perfect start to our honeymoon and will always have a special place in our hearts!

Owner's Response: Ciao Emily...My wife and I are very happy that you enjoyed your "Honeymoon" at La Ginestra! When she and I are here we feel like we're on OUR honeymoon..(even though we've been together 27 years)! Perhaps you will return to La Ginestra to celebrate one of your anniversaries! Thank you for your kind words and we wish you and yours a safe, healthy and happy marriage! Richard & Kelly

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We had the most amazing 7 nights in La Ginestra. It was everything we hoped for and more! Sitting outside looking at the beautiful view, we felt like we had the whole of Tuscany to ourselves as the cottage is so private. You would never know the local shops were literally five minutes walk away! Definitely the best of both worlds. Richard's file full of information on things to do, where to eat etc was most useful. Our favourite piece of information was on the man who comes to the village twice a week with a truck full of fresh local produce. We have never tasted more delicious nectarines, apricots and tomatoes! When we needed any assistance with anything in the cottage, Stefania was literally minutes away, and she and Massimo were so incredibly helpful. The kitchen is very well stocked so we enjoyed numerous meals sitting out on the terrace under the vines with a bottle of wine or two! La Ginestra is just magical, thank you for sharing it with us Richard and Kelly. We would love to come back again!

Owner's Response: Dear Siobhan, Thank you for the very kind review. It makes Kelly and I very happy to hear that our guests are appreciating La Ginestra. That is precisely our intention. And you're right..it's a magical property where one can "slow down" and literally smell the roses! La Ginestra will be waiting for your return with open arms! Ciao for now...Richard

Amazing Views, Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

This house is as wonderful as the other reviewers indicate. The house is beautiful with everything you could need. It's also very thoughtfully decorated. We appreciated the attention to detail and little touches that make it feel unique. The views are simply breathtaking. The area where it is located is quite perfect--nearby markets, stores, and restaurants but when you are at the house you feel tucked away in the countryside. We loved every minute of our time at La Ginestra and hope to return someday.

We were so grateful for our time at La Ginestra. It was beautiful, clean, modern, and quaint all at the same time. We loved the quiet, peace, and incredibly beautiful surroundings. We would absolutely go back if we're able to make a trip to Tuscany in the future!

Being here during the summer, town festivals and events is also a must. I'm glad you enjoyed your stay Katie...ciao for now...Richard

Perfetto!

  • 5 of 5

Since this was our second trip, Maurizio gave us the “short briefing and welcome” which was just perfect as we remembered how helpful he was on our first stay and we came right from Rome airport! For tired American travelers, we thoroughly appreciated the comfortable bed, well-appointed kitchen, great shower and romantic fireplace and outdoor tub (a great addition!). Thanks for all the details to keep Americans happy in Italy while feeling like locals! Much appreciated Richard! Love the non-tourist but central location and our ability to walk and wander from a very charming home.
