The house lies in the middle of open farmland, surrounded by fields of wheat and sunflowers on one side and a small wood and the strange shapes of the distinctive clay hillocks and scrub which characterize the local landscape on the other. A winding gravel road (1 km) lined with oak trees running along a little stream anticipates the peaceful bucolic spirit that pervades the house. The pool is set against a backdrop of the typical Siena clay hillocks; wild rose and broom bushes growing in the garden blend into the surrounding countryside. The former stables on the ground floor of the house have been converted into a spectacular summer salon with 7 large windows. On one side of the house lies the pool house, which also contains a garden kitchen for outdoor meals. A pergola covered in vines and wisteria provides shade over a large table. The main living quarters are on the first floor, which is reached by an external staircase leading into a large living room with an open fireplace. The walls have been lime-washed in a sunny light shade. The adjacent kitchen has a typically Tuscan kitchen range and hood, with a fireplace at the same level to make cooking over the fire easier. The walls have been painted a stunning blue lime wash, in the characteristic style of old kitchens in peasant farms, as blue was supposed to keep the flies away in the summer. The cow-shed on the ground floor has been converted into a large summer room which looks out onto the garden. A double room with two original antique beds and its en suite bathroom are also on the ground floor. The closest village is Contignano which lies at the other side of the Orcia river at a distance of 4 km from the house. Here you will find an alimentary food shop, a bar, a butcher and a fruit and vegetable shop. For a larger choice of shops or a supermarket Chianciano Terme is at a distance of 10 km. This house belongs to a a large property which extends over the hills overlooking the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. Midway between Florence and Rome, the estate is also within easy reach of Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto. Renaissance and medieval gems such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo are only a few miles away from the houses you can rent at the property. The countryside around the estate abounds in lovely walks in the woods and the typical 'crete senesi' (clay hills) of the region. The food is considered the best in Tuscany and famous wines such as the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino can be sampled in the local cellars.
