Charming hill villa with a wonderful view and park

Bedrooms 5
Space 3,013 sq. ft.
Property type chateau / country house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

5 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, large living room with chimney, view of Siena and Crete

It is located in the heart of Tuscany - Monte San Savino - between Val di Chiana Aretina and Crete di Siena; in the peacefulness of the woods and the olive groves, with a splendid view on the Val D'arbia and Siena. Monte San Savino is a city of art with works from Vasari, Sansovino, and Sangallo. It is approximately 30 minutes by car from Siena, Arezzo and Cortona. Other beautiful and nearby cities are: Lucignano with the golden tree or the Gargonza castle at 5 min. Beautiful trips in the nature are available.

The house has all the needed commodities: equipped kitchen, laundry room and 3 bathrooms. The bedrooms are organized in 3 little suites: one double room with bathroom, two bedrooms with double and single bed with bathroom. There is also a comfortable living room with a beautiful antique chimney. On the ground floor there is a wide dining hall with a chimney ideal for groups, equipped with a ping pong table. During summer it is wonderful to dine outside or beneath the loggia or take the sun and refresh with the comfortable outdoor shower. Relaxation is guaranteed in the small pine forest or between the olive trees. For the children there is a swing seat, but overall the opportunity to play safely in the field, between the olive trees or the small forest. The owner, Lino, with his sons and nephews, receives the guests and are at your disposal for any need: many times there is a friendship that is born during the stay.

About Lino Zanni

Lino accommodates the guests, or like many young guests call him Nonno (grandpa) Lino, who is extremely kind. Simona and the grown up nephews help him out with the languages (English and French)

Why Lino Zanni chose Monte San Savino

The beautiful house was built by him, with old stones and with all the art of the ancient construction worker. A way of giving value to the house is by offering it to travellers that wish to visit and stay in our wonderful land and also have the chance to meet people from other parts of town and exchange cultures. The location of the house is the first source of love you will experience.

What makes this chateau / country house unique

The view of Siena and Crete Senesi, the breeze that rises in summer from the woods and forest below, the view of the starry night laying down in the veranda, having breakfast in the morning immersed in the nature with the wonderful view, or in winter around the antique chimney or the comfortable bedrooms: all of this is a unique experience that only this house can give.

"Our stay was wonderful at Mr. Lino's home.

The house is very confortable, the location is amazing, near all nice cities of Toscana, but at the same time is in the middle of a nice forest.

We strongly reccomend this location for a nice vacation period in Toscana"

Ancora più bello di quanto pare dalle foto!

  • 5 of 5

La Palazzetta è una casa splendida, dotata di ogni confort, con ampi spazi interni e una distesa di verde e bosco all'esterno in mezzo alla natura. La nostra famiglia di sei persone vi ha trascorso un periodo felice di vacanza e lavoro(del capo famiglia)anche grazie alle attenzioni e alla disponibilità dei proprietari (nonno Lino è l'idolo dei bambini!) la cui presenza discreta ci è stata di grande compagnia e utilità (con indicazione di itinerari turistici, anche vicini, imperdibili!). Il buon gusto toscano negli arredi, nella cura dei particolari e, non da ultimo, nel cibo è senz'altro apprezzabile non solo dagli stranieri ma anche dagli italiani, motivo per cui consigliamo questa vacanza a tutti. La casa, inoltre, si presta ad alloggiare più di una familgia poiché le camere sono divise in tre zone distinte (rispettivamente da 4, da 4 e da due) ciascuna dotata di bagno. Noi abbiamo ospitato amici con bambini e i nostri nonni che hanno tutti trovato il posto davvero incantevole. A un tiro di schioppo si trovano Siena (così vicina che le luci della città si vedono dalla camera dal letto!), Arezzo, Cortona, Orvieto e tanti altri posti da visitare.

In sostanza torneremo presto!

"Isolé dans la campagne, au bout d''une piste (15'' San Savino, 40'' Sienne, 1h15 Florence). Très belle demeure toscane aménagée avec goût par des propriétaires très accueillants.Lieu idéal pour des familles notamment. Petits et grands ont particulièrement apprécié les rencontres presque régulières avec de bien sympathiques sangliers."

  • 5 of 5

"Environnement de rêve, superbe maison en pierre, très spacieuse, jardin planté d''oliviers, vue magnifique. On y accède par un piste à travers la forêt, donc très au calme. Aucun passage de voitures à proximité. On n''entend que les cigales et les sangliers et marcassins qui viennent nous rendre visite jusque dans le jardin. Au détour des chemins, on croise aussi quelques chevreuils. Ajoutons l''excellent accueil et la gentillesse des propriétaires. La maison est idéalement située pour accéder à Florence, Sienne, et même Pise, ainsi qu''à une multitude de petit village à voir absolument : San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Volterra etc. Et un lac à moins d''une heure de route où l''on peut se baigner. Côté propreté rien à dire. En fait, la location est bien mieux que la description qui en est faite ! Seul bémol : Le lave-vaisselle mériterait d''être changé, mais c''est vraiment un détail."

Reach the charming location of Palazzuolo: here you have to enter the Cypress Boulevard until the visible Palazzuolo Alto. Once entered here, go through the only main road and turn right on the first street after the Chiesetta (small church). Drive approximately 800 metre on the white road in the middle of the chestnut forest and we will be waiting for you.

The nearby town of Palazzuolo offers two restaurants with typical food from Tuscany

A close farm also offers products, particularly, wine and oil

Ideal place for trips, you can also rent at Monte San Savino, mountain bikes for the time desired.
