We had a great holiday; the house is fully equipped to self-cater & enjoy the setting.The views from the house are beautiful and very relaxing & the pool was perfect for our children (9-13 yrs).
It takes approx 20 mins to walk into the centre of Asciano where you will find a Co-Op, a few restaurants & some bars.
A car is a must to explore the local area, we visited Siena, Arezzo, St. Gimignano & Montepulciano & although busy still enjoyable.
The beauty & appeal of this house is that you could stay there in all seasons, the house has a wood burner & I think it would be very cosy in the autumn/ winter months.
We would highly recommend this house and would love to stay here again in the future.
The house itself is a beautiful old farmhouse, comfortably decorated whilst retaining its charm. It is located in small hamlet with houses around and a road running along one side of it, so do expect some noise from cars, people, dogs etc in the morning.
The main apartment has one double bedroom. A second, self-contained unit consists of one room with sofa-bed and kitchenette and a bathroom. The beds are comfortable, the main apartment is lovely, but the second bedroom/apartment suffers more from noise and heat. The entrances to the two apartments are right next to each other (as per the photo). The main apartment is well-equipped, but has no wifi or washing machine.
The surrounding countryside is very beautiful indeed, and the views from the windows are stunning, especially at sunset. The nearby village of Casciano has all the facilities you need, with amazing local meat from the butchers and the grocery store. A car is needed to make excursions to some of the beautiful national parks in the area, for example the Alto Merse park (20 minutes) or the Maremma park (50 minutes). Siena is only 25 minutes away, and numerous other beautiful towns, village and other sights are within easy distance. A small horse riding stables is close by (Ipodromo Bellaria) for some basic horse-riding.
Overall, a highly recommended stay especially for a couple using the main apartment only, although I would expect to pay a few euros less for what is then a one-bedroom apartment.
