A cheerful house

La Giocosa is located in the most desirable region south of Siena, in the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. The house is just 10 km from the historic center of Montalcino.

Set on a 15 hectare (38 acre) wine estate, the house is surrounded by olives groves and vineyards and offers a peaceful setting. It has been completely restored and is comfortably furnished.

The living rooms are located on the ground floor. The large, open living room with wide arches, massive wooden beamed ceiling and terracotta floors is the centre of the house. The bright kitchen is decorated in a traditional style.

On the first floor are the four bedrooms. All rooms have beautiful views. On the first floor there is also a single bedoom at extra charge. It must be requested when booking, but the number of people may not exceed 8 people.

On the panoramic side of the house, overlooking the garden, is a terrace with a long table for outdoor dining. The garden has lovely landscape views of the valley, a beautiful pool just 50 meters from the house and a bocce court.

An unpaved private road (about 800 m) leads from the main road to the house; this driveway is not suitable for low slung cars. A wine cellar is located 500 meters from the house and features one of the best systems for the biodynamic production of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.

Montalcino is a classic Tuscan hill town, topped by a medieval fortress, and can be reached in 15 minutes by car. It offers a good selection shops and restaurants, and is famous for its Brunello wine (as well as the less pricey Rosso di Montalcino). There is an enoteca in the fortress where you can sample wines and other local delicacies.

The famous Sant' Antimo Abbey, one of the finest Romanesque churches in Tuscany, is located just outside of town (2.5 km). Facilities for horseback riding (20 km), tennis (12 km) and golf (60 km) are available nearby. The sandy beaches of the Maremma are 60 kilometers away. The nearest restaurant is in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, just 2 km from the house.

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Florence 130 km Pisa 220 km Rome 220 km, Bocce court, Fridge with freezeer, Gazebo by the pool, Infinity pool, Iphone-IPad dock station in the living room, Italian and American coffee maker, Juice maker, Mixer, Patio with parasol, Pool: 4 x 15m, Private Chef, Stove with oven
