Description from manager

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Alborata is an old Tuscan farmhouse entirely built in stone, dating to the beginning of the last century and situated not far from the village of San Giovanni d’Asso, in the unmistakable and characteristic countryside of the Crete Senesi. During the recent, careful renovation works, the travertine staircase, floors in top quality Tuscan terracotta and ceilings with the characteristic vaults were installed on the ground floor and, on the first floor, ceilings with exposed wooden beams and tiles, leaving intact the original structure of the farmhouses of yore. The choice of furniture respects the traditional Tuscan style, simple and comfortable but, at the same time, elegant. Alborata is the ideal place for those wishing to spend a holiday completely immersed in the uncontaminated nature and ancient history that these places have managed to preserve throughout time and which, today, are testimony to a rich and exciting past. The location, in fact, permits guests to make short trips to the numerous, fascinating villages in the vicinity such as Montepulciano, Montalcino, Pienza, with their inviting food and wine proposals and to organize daily excursions to the major art cities of Tuscany like Siena and Florence.

Interior

MAIN HOUSE. The two-storey farmhouse has a circular design connecting all the ground floor rooms. The main entrance leads on the left to the fully-equipped kitchen and on the right to the sitting room connected via broad vaults to the large living room with dining area, divans, fireplace and satellite TV. All the ground floor rooms have practical French windows with direct access to the outside. There is also a toilet on this floor. From the entrance on the ground floor an antique stone staircase leads up to the first floor with reading corner, two double bedrooms and a twin bedroom. A bathroom with shower and a bathroom with tub and shower complete this floor. ANNEX. The annex, with the ground floor and the first floor connected only by an external staircase, is situated just a few steps away from the main house; each composed of a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and a kitchenette.

Park

A luxuriant garden of about 3000 square metres surrounds the park, covered by grass and embellished with colourful flowerbeds, trees and shrubs typical of the Tuscan vegetation such as olives and cypresses. The French windows of the main house and the annex open on to the inner courtyard which, paved in terracotta, and with an old well, is furnished with garden chairs and tables. Also, just outside the kitchen French window, in a shaded area, a gazebo with table and chairs and, nearby, a brickwork barbecue, constitute the ideal spot for organizing enjoyable alfresco meals.

Swimming Pool

The infinity pool, situated just a few metres from the house, is in a splendid panoramic position. It is rectangular in shape and measures 5 x 15 m with a constant depth of 1.5 m. It is lined in PVC and purification is by chlorine. Access to the water is by Roman steps. The pool area and the solarium are paved in Tuscan travertine and grass and are provided with umbrellas, tables and sunbeds to guarantee guests maximum rest and comfort.

About the area

San Giovanni d’Asso is a very old village, rich in medieval castles, characterized by the typical landscapes of the country south of Siena, with steep slopes alternating with vast woodland areas and cultivated fields. It is situated in the geographical area known as the Crete Senesi (Siennese Clays) which includes the nearby villages of Buonconvento, Asciano, Monteroni d’Arbia and Rapolano and is characterized by clay hills and the so-called “biancane” which confer to the Crete Senesi the typical cuneiform reliefs. The area of the Crete Senesi represents an uncontaminated oasis with suggestive and ever-changing landscapes, in which the territory and environment have maintained, over the years, an integrity and purity that have led San Giovanni d’Asso to excel in the production of the famous truffles, which grow in woodland only under particular environmental conditions. From San Giovanni d’Asso it is easy to travel, thanks to the good road system, to interesting localities in the region such as Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, the villages of Chianti, Florence, but also to Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano, Cortona, Perugia, Arezzo. A few steps from the property is the train station (for tourist use) of San Giovanni d'Asso, one of the stops that makes the "Nature Train", the now famous steam locomotive that runs from Siena and slowly crosses the beautiful and picturesque landscape of Crete, the Val d'Orcia and Amiata, with churches, castles and ancient villages where take place festivals and markets (during the springtime).
