A paradise in Val d’Orcia
Nestled on the rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia, a few minutes from Pienza and immersed in the most unspoiled nature, this delightful early 20th century farmhouse stands out. The building, built at the very beginning of the last century, is very particular from the architectural point of view, as it does not follow the most common canons of Tuscan farmhouses. The external walls are made up of large blocks of pale limestone alternating with brick and the chromatic contrast it produces with the green of the hills is truly suggestive, especially when the sun falls, illuminating Montalcino with pink. The property is currently used as a luxury accommodation facility and therefore the structure has been organized according to the tourist activity. On the ground floor, we find a gigantic kitchen with a central island and an adjoining large living room, both of which are part of a single large, warm and pleasant environment, especially in moments of conviviality. Continuing from the hall there are two large master bedrooms with bathrooms overlooking the private garden. Going up through a beautiful staircase you first enter a luxurious living area with fireplace and then five double bedrooms, all with private bathroom and equipped with air conditioning. The bleached beams blend perfectly with light floors in the living areas, and with the refined parquet floors in the bedrooms. Country chic style predominates throughout the house, from the beautiful designer four-poster beds to the modern whitewashed bathrooms. Next to the main building there is a delightful guest unit including kitchen and living area and a large master bedroom. The manicured gardens and the infinity pool overlooking the hills of the Val d’Orcia complete this picture of incredible peace.
This paradise can be reached via the main road that connects Siena to Pienza and, subsequently, by taking a dirt road of about 3 km. Located in the heart of the Sienese countryside, surrounded by the rolling hills of the Val d’Orcia, this farmhouse is one of the favourite destinations for those who decide to get married in Tuscany. Bagno Vignoni, a thermal spring used since Roman times, Pienza and Montalcino are just a few kilometres away. On the background there is Monte Amiata, which in the clearest days of winter shows us its white snow-capped peaks. Unesco World Heritage Site since 2004, the area has been chosen as the setting for numerous films such as The Gladiator and The English Patient.
