About The Experience
On a large estate surrounded by olive groves and flower fields, this Italian villa is just the place if you and your group are looking for beauty and tranquility. Whether its sunrises in the morning, sunsets in the evening, or midday gazing, you’ll have views that will take your breath away while at this Tuscany villa. Divided into three apartments, this accommodation in Italy is best for groups that love traveling together but also enjoy their privacy.
Location Description

The farmhouse is located three kilometers from Monticchiello, where you'll find shops, restaurants, and a market. Monticchiello still has its original city walls, towers, and castle, while the main site is the 13th century gothic church, which contains a beautiful altarpiece. Each summer, the locals put on plays that they themselves have wrote with three acts. The first act takes place in the past, the second act takes place in the present, and the third act takes place in the future. If you're looking for a town a little bigger, Pienza is about a 15-minute drive away. In addition to shops and restaurants, there are markets, banks, a pharmacy, post office, and gas station, visit Pienza. The history of Pienza (or Citta di Pio) is closely linked to Pope Pius II, known as the great humanist. In 1458 he transformed this ancient town (his birthplace) into a perfect example of architectural and urban design. Judging by the attention this gorgeous town still gets today, his ambitious project was a success, attracting visitors from all over the world. The main sites include the Palazzo Piccolomini and the Duomo. Great day trips through the region are to the hilltop town of Cortona or the culturally rich city of Siena.
