Description from manager

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE. Podere Collelungo gets its name from the 380 m high hill on which it stands, surrounded on every side by scenery of rare beauty made up of hills, gullies, oak woods, expanses of cultivated fields that stretch to the horizon and green hills topped by old picturesque villages. The property stands, secluded and silent but not isolated, in an enchanting position in this lovely strip of land, straddling the valleys of the Orcia and the Chiana, within the Val d'Orcia Artistic and Cultural Park and in the southernmost part of the province of Siena, not far from the borgo of Celle sul Rigo and from the prestigious little town of San Casciano dei Bagni. The complex, consisting of a main house and two former barns that have been completely renovated, maintaining the architecture, charm and warmth of the typical Tuscan farmhouses, is the ideal solution for guests wishing to share the common areas inside the main house, where the ground floor is composed of a large living space with seating areas, a large country kitchen and a long table for everyone to eat together, but, at the same time, to have their own private space thanks to further kitchens and living rooms present on the first floor and in the annexes. Outside in the vast park surrounding the buildings, a succession of lawn areas dotted with bushes of Mediterranean herbs and broom, outdoor living areas and a large pool will be the best places from where you can admire picture postcard sunsets and enjoy the quiet country atmosphere. Within a few kilometres are interesting tourist destinations (Montalcino, San Quirico, Radicofani, Castiglione d'Orcia, Pienza, Monte Amiata), prestigious spa resorts (San Casciano dei Bagni, 7 km away, Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni, Chianciano Terme), a tennis court (at the multifunctional field in Celle), golf clubs (at Panicale and Bettolle) and a riding club with professional instructors close to the property, for a holiday dedicated to wellness and sport and to discovering the artistic, culinary and environmental treasures which abound in the area.

About the area

The house is immersed in the typical landscape of the Val d'Orcia, situated south of Siena and a short distance from Celle sul Rigo. Celle is a tiny old hilltop village which, thanks to its strategic, border location, has been over the centuries the subject of bitter disputes and different dominations. Today it is a delightful borgo, surrounded by unspoiled nature, rich in woodland and enchanting panoramic views, which can be reached on foot from the property and where you will find restaurants and essential shops. The history of this little village has been enriched by a prestigious guest, the great poet Giosuè Carducci, who stayed here for several years and right in the grounds of the villa, surrounded by silence and friendly nature, found inspiration for his poetry. A few kilometres from the property is the medieval town of San Casciano dei Bagni which, besides being a charming borgo full of monuments and churches, with one of the most renowned spas and wellness centres in Tuscany (there are 46 hot springs), is the ideal departure point for exploring the most important historical and cultural centres, not only of Tuscany but also of nearby Umbria. The proximity to the A1 motorway, with the exits of Fabro (at 28 km for those coming from the south) and Chiusi-Chianciano Terme (at 27 km for those coming from the north), and to the railway station of Chiusi on the Rome-Florence line, approximately 30 minutes from the property, permits short trips to visit places like Cortona, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Siena etc. The nearest airports are Perugia (79 km), Florence (159 km ) and Rome (174 km ). The property is located in an area of great scenic and natural beauty, with the Val d'Orcia Natural Artistic and Cultural Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), the Archaeological Park of Monte Cetona and the Nature Reserve of Monte Rufeno.
