Villa Arpicella is within a few miles of the historic and artistic villages of the Val D'Orcia in the south of Tuscany and also at a stone's throw are the centres of production of the best Tuscan wines Montepulciano and Montalcino
Arpicella is a beautiful, independent villa located at just 15 minutes' walking distance from Pienza and enjoys the peace and quiet of a unique countryside setting with spectacular panoramic views. The villa's extensive, beatifull garden is sheltered and secluded with no other properties in sight.
This area of the Val D'Orcia and Pienza itself are renowned for their outstanding natural beauty and, as a result, have been designed a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE.
As in past centuries, the accommodation is located solely on the upper floor, accessed by an external flight of stone stairs with a porch at the top. From here, you enter directly under the pitched roof into a spacious living-room, comprising sofa, armchairs and coffee table grouped round the large, wood-burning fireplace.
The property is centrally heated throughout and its ground floor, which traditionally used to accommodate the farm animals, now houses only garages and cellars.
Open-plan in one corner is a modern kitchenette, fully equipped with electric cooker; fridge; separate freezer; dishwasher; washing machine; pots and pans; crockery and cutlery for 12 people; and a 6-seater table.
Issuing from this dayroom is a corridor which leads to the following: a large dining-room with 8/10-seater wooden refectory table; a twin bedroom; and a spacious double bedroom. Centrally located between these last two, at the far end of the landing, is a large shared bathroom, tiled in Delft-style blue and grey, with modern fittings, including corner shower cubicle and a mirror extending across two walls.
