The House of the Lamps in Val d'Orcia

Bedrooms 1
Space 495 sq. ft.
Property type corporate apartment
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Apartment in the heart of the historic center of San Quirico d'Orcia.

From 15 April to 15 October the rates do not include heating and cooling which, if you ask it, they have an extra cost of 10 € / day, payable on site. It is possible to book without using online payment.

Stay in an apartment with structures dating back to 1300, in the historic center of one of the prettiest villages in the Val D'Orcia, whose landscapes are considered World Heritage by UNESCO.

Especially if you are fortunate enough to be there in the days and periods of no great influx of tourists, you will be surprised to enjoy the dive in a quiet country life, but the apartment and the city center is always very calm and quiet.

It will be nice to relax after wandering all day.

As you could see from the photos, the apartment has been furnished with particular care. Contains, along with modern elements, various furniture and antiques that with their history contribute to creating a warm and welcoming. There are also elements (lamps and other) specially designed and built. Some works of art (sculptures and paintings), even if only sentimental value, complement and enrich the atmosphere. You will realize for themselves that each object has not been inserted randomly but only after having thought about the effect in composing the set.

A great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a great apartment right in the historic centre of San Quirico. Having said that it is very quiet as the windows face away from the street. The decor has clearly been put together with a lot of thought and the apartment is very well equipped - much better than most rental apartments we have stayed in. All the towns facilities are within a few minutes walk including an excellent restaurant, the Trattoria Osenna recommended by the owner and a great bakery. We had no difficulty getting a parking place in the car park that is just a few minutes away from the apartment. San Quirico is a great place to stay for visiting the Val d'Orcia area - big enough to provide everthing you need close at hand but small enough that it is easy to get in and out of.

A fantastic place in a beautiful valley

  • 5 of 5

A charming and welcoming apartment with a great view on the valley. A lot of thought has gone into its decor and there are interesting art pieces in every room. The apartment is spotless. The kitchen is well-equipped and functional; both the living area and the bedroom are cozy and comfortable. The apartment even has screens on the windows to keep flies and mosquitos out.

The location, in the centre of town, is exceptional, but very quiet and only a few minutes walk to the parking lot. There are great restaurants and a well-stocked supermarket in town.

San Quirico is in the heart of one of the most attractive areas of Tuscany. Pienza and Montalcino are nearby. Compared to them, San Quirico has more of a homely feel. We enjoyed our walks in the surrounding countryside. If you like nature, wine, and art, this place is for you.

Siamo stati in questo fantastico appartamento per 5 giorni, è stato come essere a casa.

L'appartamento è arredato con molto gusto, non manca nulla.

Il sig. Gianluca e la sig.ra Mimma sono stati gentilissimi.

Sicuramente se torniamo in zona affittiamo nuovamente la casa delle lampade.

Grazie di tutto

Una settimana da sogno!!

  • 5 of 5

Abbiamo trascorso una settimana meravigliosa in Val d'Orcia. L'appartamento provvisto di ogni confort non ci ha fatto mancare nemmeno il superfluo. Le bellissime lampade che arredano con eleganza ogni stanza hanno reso magico e accogliente il tempo trascorso tra le mura domestiche. Tecnologia e romanticismo al top! Torneremo presto!

Un appartamento perfetto se si vuole visitare la splendida Val d'Orcia!

Bellissimi luoghi come Pienza, Monticchiello, Montalcino, Montepulciano o Bagno Vignoni sono a brevissima distanza, raggiungibili in pochi minuti d'auto. Posizionato in pieno centro storico a San Quirico è dotato di ogni comfort, vicinissimo a negozi, ristoranti e ad un comodo parcheggio gratuito. Sarebbe bello tornarci nel periodo aprile-maggio! Il proprietario e la signora Mimma sono gentilissimi.
