The loft is on the groundfloor of a typical tuscan country house.
The house is surrounded by an immense garden with ancient oak trees that merges naturally with the surrounding landscape. The swimming has a breathtaking 180° view of Val d'Orcia.
The loft is on the groundfloor of the countryhouse my family and I live in.
The house is surrounded by an immense garden with ancient oak trees that merges naturally with the surrounding landscape.
Two doors of the loft directly open on the garden, where you have a table, chairs and a few deckchairs and a Bbq set.
The loft consists in an open space (about 100 m2), a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower and tub.
The open space consists of a fully furnished kitchen with marble counters and everything you will need to prepare delicious meals during your stay, there is a fireplace with a few comfortable armchairs, two tables and plenty of chairs and, in a corner of the room, a double bed.
The separate bedroom is essential and the bathroom right in between the two spaces.
The loft is an amzing space full of light and warmth thanks to the wooden floors. The breathtaking tuscan landscape is just a step away!
We created this space in order to make you feel at home.
As I live on the spot I will be happy to help you anytime and make the best of your days in the valley.
The house is set in between the clay hills of the Orcia Valley that was declared UNESCO world Heritage site in 2004, the Valley extends between Pienza, the Mount Amiata and Siena and is home to many picturesques medieval villages and hamlets, the famous tuscan Brunello wine and other excellent wines, amazing pecorino cheese farms, olive oil groves, and a number of hot water springs.
Many interesting towns as Siena, Perugia, Orvieto, Arezzo and Cortona are within an 1 hour drive. Smaller places as Montalcino, Cetona, Pienza, Montepulciano and Sarteano are much closer but well worth a visit.
I've made a comprehensive guide with all my favourite things to do in the area (food, markets, sightseeing, shopping etc) that you will find upon your arrival in the loft.
