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 have been coming to Tuscany on holiday for many years and this is really the best holiday home we have ever found. Adi, the owners' representative, is a fluent English speaker and is very helpful. The view from the rear of the house is outstanding and watching the changing of the light is mesmerising.

We can't overstate what a wonderful experience we had. Our expectations were exceeded! The grounds and the villa itself are absolutely lovely, and the owner, Belinda, was lovely as well. She is so kind and warm, and she took care of everything. We had such a good experience that we are already planning a return anniversary trip with our family. Would highly recommend the villa and Belinda to anyone looking for a picturesque Italian holiday, a family reunion, or even (like us!) a wedding.
