Do you think Tuscany is one of the most wonderful places in the world and you would like to spend your next holiday there? Well, we have what you need, our house in Sarteano, in the very centre of this ancient village. It is part of a mansion built in 1500, which was recently adapted in an old fashioned style, at first and unique floor: wide dining/sitting room with kitchen and fireplace (couch containing a bed) – two double bedrooms (an extra bed can be provided on request) - bathroom. Another apartment (huge bedroom with 5 beds, dining/sitting room with kitchen at ground floor, bathroom) can be added through a door at the end of the corridor. Sarteano is a well known village set among the ancient Etruria sweet hills, at the slope of Mount Cetona. From the height of 573 meters above the sea it overlooks the Chiana Valley , most part of Umbria and the Orcia Valley. Sarteano is in the middle of one of the most famous area in the world as for art, history, archaeology and natural beauty as well.
The region is also famous for thermal baths and in Sarteano you will find the fantastic “Parco delle Piscine”, three pools of thermal water from the so called Holy Bath, known from the ancient time. During the month of August takes place an exciting show all over Sarteano: the Saracino’s giostra. Historical parades, phantasmagorical shows and a final knights tournament will enable you to live a real Renaissance life. All over the year you can attend many other parades and cultural and historical events. Very Close to Sarteano there is Castiglioncello del Trinoro, beautiful little village up on a high hill with one of the most incredible view on the Orcia Valley. If you are interested in archaeology in Sarteano you will find traces of the Etruscan and the Latin civilization at the local Museum as well as nearby where many archaeological sites are open daily. You can have a typical tuscan meal in many restaurants in Sarteano and all kind of shops are very close by. You can reach Sarteano by car (A1 highway 140 km from Rome, 160 from Florence exit Chiusi Chianciano) or take a train to Chiusi station which is 10 km far from Sarteano and reachable by bus. There are lots of free parking areas but you can also park just below the apartment for half an hour to bring or take luggages or shopping bags.
