Make a holiday rental home or condo in Asciano, Italy your home away from home

Asciano, just southeast of Siena in the heart of the Crete Senese, is a small rural hamlet in the beautiful Tuscan hills. The town was originally built in its current form during the medieval period, but ancient settlements by the Etruscans and Romans provide the area with an even richer and more diverse cultural heritage. Asciano offers the perfect getaway for families and couples looking to escape the city life, with many beautiful and isolated farmhouses and villas around the village.

Things to do in Asciano, Italy

Visitors to Asciano can explore the village on foot, where there are a number of historical sights of interest including the 11th century Sant’Agata basilica and its 13th century campanile.

Art lovers will also enjoy a trip to the Museo d’Arte Sacra, which holds numerous works by 13th and 14th century artists. The town’s Museo Archeologico is also worth a visit.

After a morning strolling around the village, visitors should then visit one of the local cafes to sample one of Italy’s two famous beverages – wine or coffee, or maybe both. If this hasn’t tired you out, the surrounding hills offer some spectacular views and are also worth exploring on foot or bicycle.

It is set in a beautiful surrounding of olive trees and grape vines. Accommodation is to a high standard and immaculate. The swimming pool is welcoming.

Herzliche Gastgeber und ein wunderschöner Garten, der keine Wünsche offen läßt. Guter Ausgangspunkt für Ausflüge in die Umgebung. Die Ausstattung des Hauses ist nahezu perfekt und der Pool ein Traum. Vielen Dank an die Familie.
