About This Listing
In the heart of the Val d'Orcia National Park and the Natural Reserve of Lucciola Bella, on a natural terrace overlooking Mount Amiata, the apartment assures contact with nature in a protected and uncontaminated oasis. The view of the rolling hillside is unique and varies constantly with the passing of sunlight and the changing of the seasons. The central location makes it the perfect accommodation for your holiday home in Tuscany.
Located just southeast of Siena, the estate is ideally situated for day trips to Florence, Siena, Assisi, Perugia, and Pisa.
The estate produce extra vergin oil of olive and grain. The gardens are enchanting and the apartment has a private area for fresco dining. The pool 12x6 meters has a breath taking view to the valley and is shared with the out her guests of my 2 apartments.
The ground floor consists of a spacious entrance that leads to a large open plan living room with an original stone fireplace, television with DVD player, radio/CD stereo. To the left is the dining room and fully equipped kitchen with stove, oven and dishwasher. There is also a half bathroom downstairs.
Upstairs features a glassed-in portico with a breathtaking view of the wheat fields and olive groves and a comfortable sofa for reading or relaxing. The three spacious and comfortable bedrooms (2 doubles and 1 twin bedded room) each have sweeping views of Mount Amiata and are furnished with wrought-iron lamps and beds and antique furniture. The marble bathroom with tub and shower is located on the same floor. The other bathroom is en-suite, connected to one of the bedrooms (please note that this bathroom's shower is located up five steep and narrow steps and is not suitable for the elderly or disabled). Outside The garden just in front of the house is furnished with a table, chairs and barbecue for alfresco meals overlooking the Valley.
To start, the place is truly amazing ! The garden is absolutely beautiful, the pool is really charming and the house is pretty cosy. This is really the true Tuscany experience. You are lost in Tuscan beautifful landscape but only 5 minutes from Monticchiello. It is (and I really don't know why) not to hot in summer, it is just perfect !
My only commentary would be that you have to share the pool (but it's the deal in the beginning) and that you don't have the full view from the house garden. The pillow and the pool beds could be changed also. But I Highly recommend this place and Andrea is really helpful.
I hope that we will be back sometime !

About the Host, Andrea
Ciao! I love Italy and it's beauty. I live between Rome, Tuscany and Sicily and i try to do my best to make my guest's stay memorable. I love food and wine, travelling, playing guitar and sailing; this is my brand new passion!
I usually use Airbnb as a guest too and every time i do that i learn a little bit more how to make my guests/friends more at home even if there are away from home.
