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. This beautiful country house is located just 10 km from the historical centre 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. The countryside of the Val d`Orcia abounds in lovely walks in the woods and the typical "crete senesi" (clay hills) of the region. The house has been recently restored, with many modern conveniences. The back of the house opens onto a garden with a lovely view of the valley and a swimming pool set just 50 meters from the house.

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). Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Orvieto, Viterbo and a wealth of sites and attractions are within easy reach. 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.

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

Additional amenities: Airport distance:Florence 130 km Pisa 220 km Rome 220 km, Bocce court, Fridge with freezeer, 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
