Make a holiday rental home or apartment in Sarteano, Italy your home away from home

The historical town of Sarteano sits in southern Tuscany’s beautiful Val d’ Orcia, rising along the eastern side of the Cetona mountain. This medieval hamlet offers a wide range of holiday rental accommodation, including authentic farmhouses, plush villas and historic townhouses – many of which offer panoramic views of the surrounding unspoilt countryside. As well as many medieval landmarks and attractions within Sarteano, there are a number of daytrip opportunities to take advantage of.

Things to do in Sarteano, Italy

Sarteano has a number of historical landmarks and monuments worth visiting. You can take your pick from the Chiesa (Churches) of San Martino and San Francesco, the Palazzo Comunale (Municipal Palace), the castle Castiglioncello del Trinoro, the Palazzo Piccolomini (Piccolomini Palace) and the Museo Civico Archeologico (Archaeological Civic Museum).

There are also a number of wineries, patio restaurants, bars and cafes within the historical centre, giving you plenty of choice when you want to relax after a long day, as well as a number of grocery stores selling fresh local produce, allowing you to rustle up an authentic Tuscan meal in your self-catering accommodation.

The area is also famous for its thermal waters – known as ‘Bagno Santo’ (Holy Bath), which are believed to have therapeutic properties. The springs are in a park, just a short walk from the town centre, and are also used to fill an outdoor swimming pool.

Sarteano’s biggest event is held every August, when thousands of visitors come from all around for the Giostra del Saracino – a historical procession and horseback contest. Book early if you plan to arrive at this time.

Enjoyable stay in the Umbria Country side

5 of 5
We were very satisfied with the stay at Casale Sento. We enjoyed the country side and the view, the swimming pool was very popular. In the house the kitchen was well equipped and the facilities and the bedrooms were excellent. In the shops in Tavernelle we found good food. We did visit lake Trasimeno, the city of Peruiga, and the outlet mall in Valdichiana. We also did run and walk along the roads in the mountains around the Villa. We also lay in the sun and enjoyed the heat. We got good information from the owners side.

A Beautiful And High Quality Villa Oozing Character In Glorious Tuscany. Fabulous jacuzzi, private pool, country views and grounds. A large, generously equipped kitchen with high quality appliances and lots of preparation surface. Four very good sized bedrooms with clean and comfortable beds ( we slept well here despite the very hot weather) and very nice bathrooms. Spotlessly clean. Well located for Tuscan touring and Autostrada, 1km to gorgeous Cetona with local supermarket and shops, cafes and restaurants. 10 minutes to large PAM supermarket. Excellent BBQ with wood provided. Owners Valerio and Daniela are welcoming and knowledgeable. The pool is cleaned at 7am each morning. The gardens are beautiful and overlook olive groves and sunflower meadows. This brings mosquito bites in hot weather so do come prepared if you are susceptible.
