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 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 farmhouse and consists of a double bedroom, a single bedroom with a small toilette, a bathroom, and a living room with kitchenette.

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.

  • The estate is perfectly located in Tuscany (email hidden) 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! *****

  • My husband and our friend were in Tuscany for a wedding and stayed four nights at Silvia's place. The buildings are beautiful and the apartment was very clean but our favourite part was Silvia's lovely breakfasts of cereals, toasts, pastries, homemade cakes and meat and cheese. The accommodation is well laid out and spacious although my husband and friend (both 6ft men) found the small shower cubicle to be a very tight squeeze, and the water pressure was very erratic. Belsedere is a 10 minute drive from Asciano which offered a good variety of restaurants for dinner, although one night we cooked a great bbq and had a memorable meal on the terrace at the estate - and I can highly recommend doing that!

  • 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.

  • I fell in love with this place!

    Our staying at Silvia's historic farm was unbelievable. In this place are combined history, nature and the amenities of civilization.

    The swimming pool is very useful in hot days.

    We had incredibly delicious breakfasts. Silvia gifted us a bottle of wine when we arrived and it was really good.

    Silvia and her husband are great hosts, very positive and helpful.

    The villa located in the heart of Tuscany. Next to the small town Trequanda where you can find a several nice restorants with traditional Tuscan dishes. There are a lot of interesting places to visit around the villa: Pienza, Montepulciano, Siena, Montalcino and many others.

    Defenetely recommended!

  • Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour dans cet agro tourisme à seulement 40 kilomètres de sienne. La vue de la piscine et des chambres est plus que splendide, vraiment magnifique. Si votre logement se trouve au 1er ou au 2 eme on peut manger dehors dans l a cour intérieure où on entend les criquets et un hibou qui semble avoir adopté l.endroit. L'agrotourisme est donc bien situé à la fois près de sienne, Florence et Pérouse. Au niveau de l.appartement dans certains on trouve un four dans d.autres pas, parfois 2 plaques de cuisson parfois quatre. Les ustensiles de cuisine sont réduits au strict minimum.
    Les propriétaires sont charmants et toujours près à aider.
    C.est un endroit à conseiller pour son cadre et la gentillesse des propriétaires.

  • The listing is located in very beautiful countryside and the buildings on the property were extremely charming and well maintained. Our apartment (le logge) was as listed in the pictures and the view was amazing!

    Silvia and her husband were very helpful (even late in the evening).

    We were provided with a fantastic spread for breakfast.

    We enjoyed our stay here very much and would recommend it for couples and families.
