Siena farmhouse description

SUN-ART AND NATURE.
The farm-holyday resort Agriturismo Podere Cunina is immerged in a large natural reserve privately owned, with a lot of wild small and mid size animals, offers to the tourists a finely renovated flat with sight on Montalcino, mount Amiata and the hills of Buonconvento and Siena.
WE HAVE 7 FLATS AVAILABLE, PLEASE, CONTACT FOR DETAILS ABOUT OUR OTHER FLATS.

The farmhouse is equipped with ancient quality furniture, fitted with all modern comfort items, with maximum level certifications regarding the safety and the energy saving (floor heating/ refreshing with geothermal system, thermal and acoustic insulation).

Silvana, Piergiorgio, and their family invite you to spend a vacation at Podere Cunina, an old Tuscan farmhouse situated on a hill with a 360° panoramic view. The farmhouse and grounds were restored to include 7 apartments, barbeque and picnic areas, and a swimming pool with wi-fi connection. Podere Cunina is an ideal location from which to discover the Crete Senesi, Val d'Orcia, and all of Tuscany. Surrounded by this ancient landscape, essential and harmonious, your respect and love for nature's beauty will be nourished. Your eyes and your soul will remember it….and you will remain always attracted to this land

Live­stock paths, nu­mer­ous vine­yards, olive-groves, truf­fle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here. Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often lo­cated on hill ridges, seems like sail­ing among waves of earth and, when over­looked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.

This land is crossed by the an­cient Via Cas­sia road and is part of the Fran­ci­gena pil­grims route. It is rich with old parish-churches, abbeys, and an­cient farm­houses and ther­mal springs, as well as traver­tine quar­ries which gave birth to the fa­mous local handicrafts. Due to their pe­cu­liar land­scape and the abun­dance of artis­tic and his­tor­i­cal ref­er­ences, the Sienese Clay Hills are among the most fa­mous and pho­tographed en­vi­ron­ments in Italy. Set be­tween the hills, the fields of grain and the cy­press trees, the Clay Hills are a coun­try­side her­itage pro­tected by UN­ESCO. Here mass tourism doesn't exist, it would be de­struc­tive and would dev­as­tate the in­ti­macy and har­mony em­i­nat­ing from these hills. In re­cent yeats ef­forts have­been made to ren­o­vate local farm­houses and restart crop cul­ti­va­tion, which was aban­doned in the '60s and '70s fol­low­ing in­dus­trial de­vel­op­ment. These rural small­hold­ings live again and often offer hos­pi­tal­ity to tourists from all over the world as farm-hol­i­day prop­erty and lo­ca­tions.

PODERE CUN­INA in BUON­CON­VENTO is also a farm-hol­i­day lo­ca­tion within this sys­tem of ar­chi­tec­tural and land­scape re­cov­ery that fully re­spects its en­vi­ron­ment. Tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als typ­i­cal of the area, sourced via ac­cu­rate and de­tailed re­search, were used for the ren­o­va­tion. Lo­cated in­side a large na­ture re­serve, with many small and medium-sized wood­land an­i­mals, it of­fers 7 finely-ren­o­vated flats to tourists, with views of Mon­tal­cino, Mount Ami­ata and the hills of Buon­con­vento and Siena. It is equipped through­out with qual­ity, an­tique fur­ni­ture, fit­ted with all mod­ern com­forts, with max­i­mum level cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­gard­ing safety and en­ergy sav­ing (un­der­floor heat­ing via ge­ot­her­mal sys­tem, ther­mal in­su­la­tion, pool).





Again in the light of en­vi­ron­men­tal re­cov­ery, we have restarted work­ing the soil by restor­ing a small ex­ist­ing olive-grove and cre­at­ing a new one with about 800 plants of the species Fran­toio, Lec­cino, Moraiolo, and Pen­dolino. The agri­cul­tural pro­duc­tion of this small farm is the bi­o­log­i­cal Pure Olive Oil ('ex­travir­gin') from the Sienese Clay Hills, honey and organic saf­fron.

                          Your eyes and your soul will remember it…

                          and you will remain always attracted to this land.

                          If you are look­ing for a place to relax and un­wind, come to the Farm­house Cun­ina in Buon­con­vento and you will enjoy the Tus­can coun­try­side. You will be amazed by the breath­tak­ing panorama, sun­sets, and ca­ressed by the fresh evening breeze. Wood­land an­i­mals may across your path. You will dis­cover charm­ing me­dieval town, old farms, and art trea­sures in a uniquely calm and silent en­vi­ron­ment.

                          Silvana, Piergiorgio, and their family invite you to spend a vacation at Podere Cunina, an old Tuscan farmhouse situated on a hill with a 360° panoramic view. The farmhouse and grounds were restored to include 7 apartments, barbeque and picnic areas, and a swimming pool. Podere Cunina is an ideal location from which to discover the Crete Senesi, Val d'Orcia, and all of Tuscany. Surrounded by this ancient landscape, essential and harmonious, your respect and love for nature's beauty will be nourished. Your eyes and your soul will remember it….and you will remain always attracted to this land.

                          What are the sienese clay hills and where is the podere cunina farm-holiday resort?

                          The Sienese Clay Hills are found to the south-east of Siena. This hilly, clay area - some­times re­ferred to as 'the Tus­can desert' - forms part of the mu­nic­i­pal­i­ties of As­ciano, Buon­con­vento, Mon­teroni d'Arbia, Rap­olano Terme e San Giovanni d'Asso. Until 2.5 mil­lions years ago the area was under the sea. When the water re­ceded, ir­reg­u­lar sed­i­ments of clay and sand,con­tain­ing fos­sils emerged. The slow ero­sion process gen­er­ated many coves called 'calanchi' or 'bian­cone' and small dome-shaped hills with a pe­cu­liar light colour. The ground has amaz­ing colours and is so maleable that any­one pass­ing over it leaves tracks.

                          Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here...Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.This land is crossed by the ancient Via Cassia road and is part of the Francigena pilgrims route. It is rich with old parish-churches, abbeys, and ancient farmhouses and thermal springs, as well as travertine quarries which gave birth to the famous local handicrafts.Due to their peculiar landscape and the abundance of artistic and historical references, the Sienese Clay Hills are among the most famous and photographed environments in Italy. Set between the hills, the fields of grain and the cypress trees, the Clay Hills are a countryside heritage protected by UNESCO. Here mass tourism doesn't exist, it would be destructive and would devastate the intimacy and harmony eminating from these hills. In recent yeats efforts havebeen made to renovate local farmhouses and restart crop cultivation, which was abandoned in the '60s and '70s following industrial development. These rural smallholdings live again and often offer hospitality to tourists from all over the world as farm-holiday property and locations.

                          PODERE CUN­INA in BUON­CON­VENTO is also a farm-hol­i­day lo­ca­tion within this sys­tem of ar­chi­tec­tural and land­scape re­cov­ery that fully re­spects its en­vi­ron­ment. Tra­di­tional ma­te­ri­als typ­i­cal of the area, sourced via ac­cu­rate and de­tailed re­search, were used for the ren­o­va­tion. Lo­cated in­side a large na­ture re­serve, with many small and medium-sized wood­land an­i­mals, it of­fers 7 finely-ren­o­vated flats to tourists, with views of Mon­tal­cino, Mount Ami­ata and the hills of Buon­con­vento and Siena. It is equipped through­out with qual­ity, an­tique fur­ni­ture, fit­ted with all mod­ern com­forts, with max­i­mum level cer­ti­fi­ca­tion re­gard­ing safety and en­ergy sav­ing (un­der­floor heat­ing via ge­ot­her­mal sys­tem, ther­mal in­su­la­tion, pool).

                          Again in the light of en­vi­ron­men­tal re­cov­ery, we have restarted work­ing the soil by restor­ing a small ex­ist­ing olive-grove and cre­at­ing a new one with about 800 plants of the species Fran­toio, Lec­cino, Moraiolo, and Pen­dolino. The agri­cul­tural pro­duc­tion of this small farm is the bi­o­log­i­cal Pure Olive Oil ('ex­travir­gin') from the Sienese Clay Hills, honey and saf­fron.

                          Year Purchased: 2004

                          About the owner: we are Silvana and Piergiorgio, we have one daughter and two sons. We love nature and art.We are mad about the Crete Senesi. We have a special passion for ancient fornitures and objects. We have consecrated all our passion to restore this old farmhouse and show it to our guests.

                          Why the Owner Chose Siena:
                          If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind, to feel amazement from a glance towards the skyline, or a walk, or some woodland animal crossing your path, for a sunset caressed by the fresh evening breeze, to experience emotion for fascinating and amazing artistic places immersed in such unique, calm and silent environments, COME TO the FARMHOUSE CUNINA in BUONCOVENTO, and you enjoy the Tuscan countryside.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                          The ground has amazing colours and is so maleable that anyone passing over it leaves tracks. Livestock paths, numerous vineyards, olive-groves, truffle-grounds, and lush forests with oaks, ilexes, broom and hawthorn can be seen here.. Travelling along the rural dirt roads,often located on hill ridges, seems like sailing among waves of earth and, when overlooked by an open sky and pushed by the wind, one feels very small.
