In a former medieval fortress This impressive 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. La Chiara was once a medieval fortress and has been 'de-gentrified' over the centuries, becoming one of the main farm buildings on the extensive 900 hectares property. The 6 apartments for rent are still named after the peasant families who last lived here. The square building surrounds a large, shady courtyard planted with climbing roses, lavender and a deliciously scented lime tree. The arched entrance admits a cool breeze and leads out into the wide landscaped garden with a pool and a tennis court. The view from the garden is spectacular and surveys the entire valley, but your eye will finally settle on the dominating Monte Amiata, Tuscany's highest mountain. The lower parts of the valley consist of wheatfields and olive groves, woodland covering the upper reaches. Many walks have been signposted over the last years by the local trekking association. Great care has been taken to turn the different apartments into welcoming and attractive places. The walls have been washed in a light terracotta, the furniture is mainly antique. During the summer months you will be able to have your meals outside. The garden is furnished with tables and chairs for all apartments, each far enough from the other to guarantee each party sufficient privacy. Children are welcome to La Chiara, in fact at the far end of the garden there is a playground with swing, see-saw and slide. Additional amenities: Coffee maker, Electric kettle, Fireplace in several apartments, Laundry room (with washing machine and dryer along with iron and ironing board), Outdoor area for each unit, Play ground for children, Pool area is gated, Pool: 7 x 15m / shared pool, Private Chef, Stove with oven, Tennis, Tennis (hard court)More
