Country living

Casale was originally a barn of the main house. The owner is a painter and has used the barn for many years as an atelier. Recently he has transformed the barn into a comfortable holiday home for 6 people. The vicinity between the house belonging to the owner and the former barn does not preclude the privacy of both houses. A difference in level of the ground separates both buildings effectively.

Although close by, Casale is separated from the main house, with a garden of its own and a secluded terrace for outdoor meals and sunbathing offering the most wonderful view over the crete senesi (clay hills), the valley and the mountain beyond. The Casale guests share the pool with the owner's family and their guests.

The house has an artistic touch. Here you will find space, lightness and essential furnishing, an assemblage put together by the owner and his wife over the last years. A charming mix of laid-back comfort and Tuscan furniture gives the house a warm and friendly atmosphere. There is a living area with two comfortable sofas inviting you to laze around, and an open plan kitchen with a long table. There are three bedrooms and three bathrooms; two have a shower, one has a tub.

The open kitchen's living area leads directly onto the garden terrace through French doors. An outdoors and an indoors dining table make for pleasant family dinners and cooking events. A wood burning oven can be used for pizza meals or baking your own bread.

Paths starting out from the house lead to wonderful walks both into the wild clay hills and the woods. Casale is a perfect retreat for family holidays; heaven for children, with a swing in the garden and the shared pool.

The guests can also use the tennis court of the main farmhouse which is reached in 3 minutes by car. Casale is reached over a dust road (1 km) and lies about 300 m south of a small family restaurant, where the guests can have dinner three times a week.

This house belongs to a a large property which extends over the hills overlooking the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. Midway between Florence and Rome, the estate is also within easy reach of Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto. Renaissance and medieval gems such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo are only a few miles away from the houses you can rent at the property.

The countryside around the estate abounds in lovely walks in the woods and the typical "crete senesi" (clay hills) of the region. The food is considered the best in Tuscany and famous wines such as the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino can be sampled in the local cellars.
