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.

We loved the house and gardens - everything was provided for. The beds were comfortable, the house was clean and the facilities were great. There is a huge fig tree in the fabulous gardens and we helped ourselves to many fresh ones every day. We used the house as a base to travel to Florence, Assisi, Perugia and many other places. We also spent a good few days down by the lake. There are great restaurants in the town - very reasonable - along with fabulous coffee shops (2 of them) where we enjoyed morning cappuccinos for 1 euro each - so good and so reasonable, we had 3 each morning! All in all, a great house, with a huge pool and in a central location to travel around. Thank you Susan for our Italian adventure!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

This is a great location if you want some peace and tranquility in an incredibly natural and unspoilt environment. Villa Miralaghi is nestled on the side of a hill, in pine and oak woodland and is cool and pleasant even in the high summer. The property is set in a large country estate with many trails, paths and lakes. You are more likely to see wild boar and deer here than people! The house itself is charming and very spacious for either a large family or two smaller ones. It has all the amenities you need and there are communal facilities like children's playground, hot tub and table tennis nearby. The main feature for our family was the heated pool which our children used everyday. It was a good temperature, private and has natural shade if the sun is really hot. This was a great location to base ourselves and saw Citta Della Pieve, Castiglione Del Lago, Cortona, Montepulciano and Pienza. We even drove up to Florence. I would recommend this to family and friends and would stay here again.
