This accommodation is located in an old village set among the green hills of Tuscany, between Arezzo and Siena. The hamlet consists of a main building (a villa occupied by the owner), a farm house dating back more than two centuries, a chapel, mill and stables. The estate is focused on the production of excellent quality of oil and wine, typical for this region of Italy. The farm also produces its own honey and other products. Another activity that takes place on the estate is the breeding of horses. Horses are bred and trained to be able to jump over obstacles. All buildings on the estate display the typical Tuscan building features such as natural stone, terracotta floors and original wooden beams, which add a rustic feel to them. The houses are surrounded by 250 hectares of land with approximately 3000 olive trees and a beautiful garden. Guests of the estate can use the beautifully situated swimming pool with sun terrace and garden furniture. From the pool, enjoy a breathtaking view of the countryside. Additional facilities of the estate include a laundry and a typical 'Locanda' (restaurant) where breakfast and/or dinner are served (upon request). Also on the estate there is a completely restored eighteenth-century mill. This is truly a masterpiece because it is one of the few human-powered mills left in Europe. This detached cottage is suitable for two persons. The house has a living / dining room with a kitchen corner. The kitchen contains a stove, Italian coffee maker, fridge/freezer, microwave, oven and kettle. There is one bedroom furnished with a double bed. The bathroom has a shower and toilet. Guests of this house have a private terrace available, complete with garden furniture. All homes are rustic and comfortably furnished, have central heating, air-conditioning and a TV with satellite connection.
THESE PROPERTIES ARE AVAILABLE ONLY UPON REQUEST. YOU CAN MAKE YOUR RESERVATION WITHIN A FEW DAYS. The estate dates from the 15th century and is situated in the countryside just 45 minutes from Siena (45km), which is famous for its "Palio". The Palio of Siena is a horse race which has been held in the center of Siena since 1287. The Palio is held 2 times a year: June 29th (preparations) to July 2nd (horse race) and August 13th (preparations) until August 16th (horse race). From your accommodation you can take excursions to many villages and historic sites in the area like the old town of Arezzo where major relics from the Etruscan and Roman eras have been well preserved. The narrow streets, gates, courtyards and trattorias give the town a typical Italian atmosphere. Perugia is situated at a distance of 95 km. Its labyrinth of streets and alleys plus numerous monuments attract numerous visitors each year. Cortona (57km) is a beautiful medieval town of Etruscan origin. It was established upon one of the oldest hills of Tuscany and its rich relief of streets makes it one of the most fascinating cities in Tuscany. Here you can find numerous museums, antique shops, restaurants and cafes. The city is also known worldwide because it served as a backdrop for several scenes in the Oscar-nominated film "La vita è bella" by Roberto Benigni. For the 'shop-a-holic' a visit to the Valdichiana Outlet Village (approx. 30 km) is an absolute must! This was the first outlet village built in Tuscany. A real Tuscan village complete with squares, streets, arcades, cafes and bridges. In the center, Piazza Maggiore (Square), people meet to talk, drink coffee and go shopping.
