The Space

We are in an area where you can visit three UNESCO World Heritage Sites and easily reach the most important and beautiful cities of Tuscany.

The Holiday House "Poliziano" was constructed in the13th century in the historic village of San Quirico d'Orcia. This is the heart of Val d'Orcia where you can experience a vacation in direct contact with history, art, nature and several beautiful thermal Baths.

The house is very distinctive and welcoming in a warm Tuscan way. It is located on the ground floor and is decorated in a typical country fashion and is always full of flowers and folklore. The house is near the Collegiate Church and the most important buildings of San Quirico. It’s perfectly restored and preserves the ancient entrance with a "Gothic Arch".

A few meters from the house is a relaxing garden surrounded by ancient walls "The secret garden" and the large park of "Horti Leonini".

San Quirico d'Orcia is a famous town in the area known as the Val d'Orcia. It is located at a strategic point on the old pilgrim’s road called the “Via Francigena” which ran from France to the Vatican City in Rome.

  • Choosing Giulio's apartment in San Quirico D'Orcia was the best choice we made to know Tuscany. The apartment is beautiful with everything we needed, very clean and decorated in a particular way that let you go back in time to the thirteenth century. It has good restaurants nearby and is ideal for visiting from there all the cute places that Tuscany has to offer. At our arrival Claudia was very kind and gave us all the information we needed. The experience in "Poliziano" is totally recommended.

  • Perfect place to stay if traveling through this area. Very quiet town and easily accessible to bigger attractions with rental car. Having no WiFi was actually a blessing as it allowed is to really enjoy the pace and simplicity of the town.

  • Abbiamo trascorso un gradevolissimo soggiorno nella casa ''bomboniera'' di Giulio ! La casa è veramente curata fin nei minimi dettagli; è pulita ,comoda e soprattutto ''funzionante'' . Si trova proprio nel bellissimo centro storico di S.Quirico e a pochissimi chilometri dai posti più belli della Val d'Orcia. La consigliamo vivamente a tutti. Noi ci torneremo presto !

  • Full of character, Giuilo's flat is very comfortable. We also appreciated Giulio's clear directions, given that you park your car outside the city walls. San Quirico d'Orcia is a lovely, historical hill town, beautifully placed for exploring southern Tuscany.

  • The apartment is just as described. It is very clean and tidy and has everything you need. Signora Claudia (who received us) is a very kind person. She was caring about us especially guiding to the apartment. The village is very beautiful, nice to walk around and travel withing the beautiful Tuscany/Lazio/Umbria countryside. Recommended!!!.

  • This is an amazing opportunity to stay in an ancient 'castle' but have all the modern amenities, too! The apartment was just as described. When we arrived in November it was very chilly but warmed up quickly and was a cozy and inviting space, and the small walled village is absolutely charming! We had no trouble finding it with our car's GPS and Giulio's great directions. He was a great host, even sending us bike maps in advance. I would highly recommend Giulio's apartment as a base for exploring Umbria/Tuscany.
