Description from manager

An adventurous family, interested in exploring southern Tuscany and northern Umbria, will delight in this villa near Chiusi. A renovated farmhouse, warmly decorated and fully equipped with all the comforts of home, with a private swimming pool and acres of woodland to explore, has it all. A train station in Chiusi, one of the main stops along the Florence-Rome route, is located 20-30 minutes away. The Southern Tuscan towns of Cetona, Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino are all good day trips to take by car.

This renovated Tuscan farmhouse is situated on top of a hill within 50 acres of oak woodland, pastures, and olive groves. Views of the countryside may be enjoyed from several terraces, all of which are equipped for dining al fresco. The private swimming pool (14m x 5.5m), which can be heated in the spring and fall for an additional charge, is surrounded by a garden and there are lounge chairs and sun beds.

About the area

<p> Four kilometers from Villa Corso is the village of Palazzone which has shops, restaurants, and thermal baths. A drive of about 20 minutes leads to the A-1 Autostrada (Rome-Florence) and the rail station of Chiusi (intercity trains to Rome or Florence/Milan). Chiusi is centrally located between Rome and Florence and has a flourishing artistic and social scene. Within the village are multiple restaurants, shops, banks, pharmacies, and more. Venturing further, Montepulciano and Montalcino or Pienza make great day trips, or explore the historic region of Umbria. The city of Perugia is an hour’s drive away, and has must-see ancient cathedrals and a very popular chocolate festival, held every October. </p> <p> Rome: 180 km/112 mi<br/> Florence: 150 km/93 mi<br/> Siena: 90 km/56 mi<br/> Pienza: 60 km/37 mi<br/> Montalcino: 60 km/37 mi<br/> Montepulciano: 35 km/22 mi<br/> Chiusi (train station): 21 km/13 mi<br/> Cetona: 15 km/9.3 mi<br/> Shops, restaurant, thermal baths: 4 km/2.5 mi </p>
