Profile

Situated in a prominent position overlooking the Val d’Orcia, this villa for rent in Tuscany offers incredible views and is in a peaceful and natural setting. It’s within walking distance of Monticchiello, which is home to many shops and restaurants as well as a castle. You’ll be able to enjoy the countryside views during your day trips through Tuscany or with your friends and family by the private pool at this vacation rental. This villa is surrounded by a landscaped garden with plants, trees, and flowers. There is a covered terrace furnished with a table and chairs. The private swimming pool (6m x 10m) is surrounded by a sun deck   and grass-landscaped lawn, both with sun loungers and umbrellas. Please be aware that the caretakers live in an annex that is connected to the villa but maintain complete privacy at all times. They have their own entrance, parking area, and garden and do not share the swimming pool. The property is gated and parking is available within the property grounds. 

Area Information

The Villa is a few minutes from the principle medieval villages of Val d'Orcia, such as Monticchiello, and its Castello dei Cavalieri Templari, home of the renowned Teatro Povero; Pienza, the Renaissance dream of Pio II; Montepulciano, hometown of the distinguished humanist "Il Poliziano"; Montalcino and its exceptional wines; Bagno Vignoni, developed around an ancient Roman thermal pool; Chiusi Etruscan city of the VIII century A.C.; and Radicofani, with its fortress which dominates the valley. Val d'Orcia, rich in subsoil sulfur waters, hosts important and celebrated thermal centers which offer esthetic and healing treatments. A small distance away from the Villa  the thermal centers of Montepulciano, San Casciano ai Bagni, Chianciano, Bagno Vignoni and Bagni San Filippo, are a perfect anti stress treatment for the care of both body and soul. Val d'Orcia, this fascinating oasis of nature and culture, is set among acres of olive groves, oak forests and vineyards....

Swimming Pool

Interior

The house , 450 sqm, charmingly decorated with beautiful valued antique furniture , is on two levels. Ground floor :from different halls you get into the main sitting room with a large fire place and a bar corner.

On the other side there is the fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, dishwasher and oven, a larder room, a bathroom with shower and washing machine. From the internal stair you climb to the first floor where you find a second living room with fire place, four double bedrooms, one bathroom with tub, one bathroom with shower and a small equipped landscaped terrace.

Heating   Usage will be metered throughout your stay and you will be charged accordingly. Charges must be paid directly on the spot to the owner or his/her representative before departing. Please note that heating in Italy, when not subject to restrictions by the local Government, is more expensive compared to other countries. If you look for a property in low season, make sure to ask for an estimate of the heating cost. You may be asked to make a supplementary deposit for heating expenses.

 

Water and Electricity    Please note that most of the properties in our portfolio are not the typical purpose-built Mediterranean holiday villas. Most are converted farmhouses or former manor houses, full of character and history. Water shortages do occur; please use it sparingly during the summer months. At the same time, Italy is probably one of the few countries in the world where the government has introduced a system of electricity limitators to contain the national consumption. This means you must be careful when using more than one appliance at once because the limitator will shut the electricity off.

 

Internet Connection   Many of our properties have an internet connection. From our experience, when a connection is interrupted due to technical reasons beyond our control, it is unfortunately very difficult, despite our efforts, to receive immediate assistance from some of the internet providers operating in Italy. We therefore strongly suggest that those who need to access their emails should bring their own BlackBerry, or a similar portable device. Please note that in any case we cannot accept responsibility for lack of these services.
