Country living in the rolling Sienese hills

Olivella is a large country house located in the peaceful and beautiful countryside of the Val d'Orcia, within walking distance of the small hill village of San Giovanni d'Asso (1 km).

The large stone house has the advantage has the advantage of being composed of two independent houses, each with a private entrance. The houses can be easily connected via two internal doors, one on the ground floor and the other on the upper floor, but by closing the doors, the houses are completely separated. Therefore, this is the perfect place for two families traveling together.

House A is suitable for 4 persons, House B for 6 persons. You can choose to rent the entire house for 10 people or only house B. If renting only house B, the smaller house is closed (not rented to other guests to guarantee the privacy of the guests).

Each house has its own kitchen and living space, so you can easily divide your your group. You can be together again just as quickly when opening the connecting doors. Both dining rooms offer ample wooden tables, each for 10 people.

Olivella is located in a 1500 square meter garden. On the panoramic side there is a meadow with olive trees, pomegranate trees and some flowering shrubs leading to a beautiful pool. The view of the lovely, senese hilly landscape is wonderful. On the rear side of the house, a small sitting area by an old fountain invites you to linger.

Opposite the pool is a pool house with loggia to enjoy al fresco meals. A long table with two benches can accommodate 12 people. Here you can watch the children playing in the pool while you are relaxing with a glass of wine. In the pool house there is a small bathroom with shower. A small room (about 10 square meters) with kitchenette (2 hotplates, fridge and sink) is a convenient facility for light summer meals near the pool.

Olivella is an ideal choice for those who wish to be close to shopping, restaurants and cafes, yet be in a private home. The small village with approximately 300 inhabitans is just a 5-minute walk away. San Giovanni d`Asso has a simple restaurant, an 'osteria', a baker and butcher, a pharmacy, a post office, a supermarket and a Cappuccino bar.

In the upper part of the old town there is a very good restaurant. The village hosts the famous White Truffle Market in the month of November. The white truffle is prized and famous throughout Italy, as well are the other agricultural products of the area: excellent wines, oil, savoury cheeses and honey. There is no public transport in San Giovanni, therefore it is essential to have a car.

Additional amenities: 1 CD-stereo, 1 DVD player, 1 iron and 2 ironing boards, 1 regular fan assisted oven (in the larger house), 1 small oven (in the smaller house), 2 coffee makers, 2 electric kettles, 2 fridges with freezer, 2 kitchen stoves, 2 satellite TVs, 2 toasters, 2 washing machines, Airport distance:Florence 125 km Pisa 190 km Rome 250 km, Dog welcome, Parking for 6 cars (2 under a roof in a barn), Pool area is gated, Pool: 5 x 12m, Private Chef, Private entrance gate
