The estate is located on the top of a hill, near Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Siena. There are four apartments, which overlook the garden of the villa or the grove of oaks beside the pool. Breakfast included.

The Space

The apartment is equipped with heating and cooking, has a separate entrance and overlooks the courtyard of the villa and the hills at the back. It is about a hundred meters from the pool. It is located on the first floor of the breakfast room and consists of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room with kitchenette, a balcony. Internet wi-fi. Outside, in the courtyard, there is a space equipped with table and chairs for outdoor dining, for the exclusive use of the apartment.

Guest Access

At the center of the Estate is located the Villa with very ancient origins, already owned by Cacciaconti at the end of 1200 was chosen as a place of retreat and prayer on the part of the Blessed Bonizzella Cacciaconti whose body, guarded by an urn on the altar of the church of Trequanda, is exposed to worship at the solemn celebrations dedicated to her in the month of May of each year. Later, the farm became the property of the Piccolomini family, and in 1500 of the family who possess today.
The buildings surrounding the house have been restored and are now part of the farm, made even more enjoyable by a beautiful pool overlooking the surrounding countryside, and a large dining room where you can taste the products of the farm and spend pleasant hours in front of the fireplace.

Interaction with Guests

During the high season we offer a Sunday evening dinner guests of the farm, with the opportunity to taste the farm products (wine, olive oil, cheese and salami).
Every morning, breakfast is served in the lounge of the estate or in outer space in front of the hills.

  • The estate is perfectly located in Tuscany within a few km from the main towns such as Siena, Montalcino, Montepulciano. The estate is in a great setting and the views are just wonderful. The accommodations were very comfortable. It was very easy to communicate with Silvia's assistant Laura via email (her recommendation of La Toraia was excellent). We saw Silvia on a daily basis when she was setting the great daily breakfast. Highly recommended!

  • Absolutely wonderful!
    We just returned from 3 nights in lovely Belsedere vineyard, and we loved it. We had the upstairs appartment with two lovely bedrooms and two baths, plus a sitting room with a kitchenette and dining table. Everything was very quaint, clean and lovely in every way. We particularly enjoyed the spectacular views, and the amazing breakfast spread served every morning! Coffee, juice, toast, pastry, ham, cheese, salami, yogurt, cereal... fantastic! Our 9-year old daughter also loved the park, and the friendly dog and cat. Silvia and her husband were very friendly and we really enjoyed our stay. We only wish we hadn't bought other wine bottles and filled our suitcase, because we tasted the Belsedere wine at the local eatery (Il Conte Matto), and it was very good! We'll have to come back to buy directly from Belsedere!
    Highly recommended! *****

  • The place was beautiful, more than we could imagined, a true tuscan experience.
    We stayed for two nights and had the pleasure of cooking to ourselves, enjoyed the great wine , and had sunset walk along the garden and pool.
