Country House in Castiglione d'Orcia, Tuscany, Italy
Podere with views in Val d'Orcia
This old farmhouse is set on a gentle hill of the beautiful Val d'Orcia with enchanting views of the surrounding garden and from which the view extends to Pienza and Castiglione d'Orcia. Finely renovated, the property consists of the main house of the owners on the first floor and 3 small apartments on the ground floor for holiday rentals and ideal for hosting friends. The main house is accessed from the characteristic loggia that leads to the living area with a large fireplace and from here to the typical Tuscan masonry kitchen. The sleeping area has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, one of which is en suite. The other apartments, located on the ground floor and accessible from the garden, are composed of 1 or 2 bedrooms and bathrooms, characteristic living areas that, thanks to the large openings on the garden, blend with the latter becoming one with the surrounding nature . Handmade terracotta floors, ancient doors, wooden beams and stones consumed by time make the environments particularly fascinating and exclusive. Each window is a real enchanting picture on the Val d’Orcia, not surprisingly recently included in the UNESCO heritage. In the garden surrounding the house, embellished by evocative corners surrounded by ancient oaks, scented rose bushes and typical essences, there is an exclusive swimming pool that makes this place a perfect corner of Tuscany for relaxing holidays immersed in pure beauty. The property is completed with an additional room used as a kitchen that opens onto the garden, an old wood-burning oven, a comfortable cellar, a pond for water collection and 5 hectares of olive grove. The farmhouse is located 13 km far from the village of Castiglione d'Orcia, where there are all the primary services. Just 30 km away are the most famous towns of the Val d’Orcia, such as Pienza and Sant'Antimo, Montalcino and Castiglion del Bosco. The city of Siena can be reached within an hour's drive. The property can easily be transformed into a single large house and therefore an ideal and exclusive place in one of the most popular countryside locations for international tourists, or put to income exploiting the enormous tourist potential already existing.
