The apartment is located in an old stone farmhouse set on a hill which overlooks the start of the Val d'Orcia, with the towns of Montepulciano and Pienza, just a few kilometers. It is equipped with air conditioning in the two bedrooms and Internet line.
It is a private residence, very quiet, surrounded by beautiful cypress trees, perfect for a holiday in harmony with nature. The core of the house dates from the end of '600. Over the centuries it was a convent, and then became an estate of the noble family Chigi, known bankers of Siena. It is reminiscent of an important coat of arms of the Chigi family still present in the rooms on the ground floor once reserved for horses.
The architectural structure is typical of the area (the yard, barn, stables and the house of farmers on the first floor) and remained unchanged over time.
The farmhouse has been completely renovated in the 80s and there are 5 apartments, plus a swimming pool with panoramic views over the village of Montefollonico. The swimming pool is just a few steps from the house, hidden by cypress trees, immersed in the classic panorama of the Tuscan countryside. The pool is private, in the sense that it is reserved only for guests who have booked my apartment (for exclusive use) and is seasonal: it opens the first week of June and closes the second week of September. You will find 4 sun loungers for sunbathing and a large parasol.
The apartment is on the first floor and was built in the core of the old country house, which remained intact the fireplace, the sink grit and old ceiling beams.
Climb a flight of stairs to get to the lodge where you can enjoy a splendid view over the countryside and Montepulciano and Montefollonico.
The apartment is on one floor and consists of a large living room with fireplace, with windows overlooking the loggia and the garden; from a kitchen, equipped with everything necessary, including the dishwasher; from a large double bedroom with air conditioning and a safe with code; from a second bedroom with two single beds, air conditioning and a sofa bed for 2 people; two bathrooms: one large with a bathtub and a smaller one with a nice shower.
Halfway through the flight of stairs is another small laundry room with washing machine, with a third bathroom. The house is equipped with a field bed for small children with its sheets and a high chair for the table.
It is good to keep in mind that the access road to the farmhouse, as well as someone else around it, is a dirt road. They are country roads that are deliberately kept in this way to preserve the classic Tuscan landscape.
Panoramic views from all the windows of the house.
Two uncovered parking spaces.
Fast Internet ADSL Telecom Italia line. At home you will find the name and password to enter the Internet of the house.
