Scorgiano villa description

'II Tramonto' (the sunset), a spacious and recently refurbished villa, set in its own private garden and olive grove in peaceful wooded surroundings, is the perfect choice for those who enjoy the countryside. It is situated about ten minutes drive from Casole D'Elsa in the Chianti area on the 'protected' hills of the Montagnola, with fabulous views towards San Gimignano and within easy reach of the famous cities of Siena and Florence. Only a few kilometres away there is a superb choice of restaurants, shops and bars. A special feature of this property is the beautiful interior decoration by the artist owner. Although generously accommodating up to 7, the villa is equally suitable for fewer and is frequently booked by 2 or 4 people.


About the area: In the holm oak and chestnut woods of the Montagnola with its abundance of wild flowers, birds and animals, including wild boar and deer, the expression 'away from it all' says it all.
Here, along the kilometres of the unspoilt mountain range that stretches west of Siena to the coast, walking, riding and cycling excursions become adventures to discover the ancient pathways to hamlets, chapels, castles and villas. From here, in every direction places of historic interest such as Siena, San Gimignano and the Abbey of San Galgano are easily reached.

How to get here, getting about and shopping: From the villa, Il Tramonto (The Sunset), the nearest airports are Pisa(1hr 45 mins), Florence(1hr) and Bologna(2hrs). Colle Val D'Elsa (20 mins) is the nearest town for shopping, indoor and outdoor swimming pools and bus services. Poggibonsi (25 mins) and Siena (30 mins) both offer excellent shopping, bus and train services. The nearest villages with bars, restaurants and shops are just 10 minutes away.

What to do: A great way to discover the Montagnola is on horseback, local stables 20 minutes. The hot springs (50 mins) are a must for their healing qualities. There is lovely river swimming just 25 minutes away and a day trip to the coast is definitely worthwhile.
Restaurants and local producers of wine, cheese and olive oil are dotted all over the area.
The owner, Jackie, designs and makes objects in metal and has a studio/showroom just 5 mins away. She can also arrange visits to the studios of other local artists and craftspeople. Living locally, she is usually available in the event of queries and will be happy to suggest places of interest to visit, depending on guests' preferences.
