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 grove of oaks and hills on the back. It is a few meters from the pool. It is located on the ground floor and consists of two double bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a living room with kitchenette. Internet wi-fi. Outside there's 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.
During summer, it is possible to organize cooking lessons on Friday afternoon, following a dinner with food cooked together. The lesson is based on Tuscan cuisine, with the preparation of a starter, first course, second course with vegetables and dessert. The minimum required for the course and dinner, is 200 € (for four people). For each additional person the individual cost is 50 €. If family or friends wishing to attend only the dinner, the cost is 15 € per person.

I loved the space of the large two bedroom apartment in the country. Very quiet and picturesque. It was a bit of a challenge finding the driveway as it didn't show up on (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps, but after talking to the neighbor, I was successful. The apartment was good, but had a number of spiders and was dusty. The views from the country were wonderful. If you are looking for an apartment to relax in the country, this will be a great fit. Enjoyed our stay.

We were wowed by the location of the home, it's tranquil setting and welcoming host. The views in every direction are amazing. The pool and patio areas were lovely spots to relax. The breakfast was a delightful mix of local foods, and a homemade lemon preserve that is not to be missed. We found the local town, Trequanda, 5Kilometer by car had a fantastic local slow food restaurant (Conte Matto). The apartment is quiet and has a simple rustic furnishings. It is equipped for very simple cooking. Despite this limitation, we would recommend the home if you are seeking a visually gorgeous location to stay.

If you are looking for calm surroundings, just disturbed by the sounds of nature, and for a swimming pool with a view, this is the place. Great to place the swimming pool a little to the side so that the children's noise could not disturb anybody in the houses! The breakfast is an extra plus, and Silvia and the rest of the family were very kind and helpful. Don't miss out the restaurant in Asciano listed in the house's information leaflet!

The host told us that we have to be in the apartments till 7 o'clock. It wasn't easy for us, but we changed our plans and were going to be in apartments on time. In the middle of our road to these place, Laura (not Silvia) told us that apartments are not available. She proposed another accommodations, but it wasn't comfortable for 4 persons, without air conditions (it was very hot) and very different from what we ordered. Price also was much different. The host said that we can find another place to stay and she will return all money. We booked new place with other host, but till now we didn't receive all money back from Laura. I don't like to write bad reviews, just want to clarify the situation.
