Torrenieri house description

Property Description

The house is part of an old school building that was fully renovated in 2008 and is a large 3 bedroom property, which provides comfortable accommodation for up to 8 people. It is a beautiful bright and spacious house spread over three floors and includes a private outdoor garden and patio area for soaking up the sun or enjoying a bbq.

The first floor comprises a large lounge room with a lovely stone fire place. This room adjoins a spacious and fully functioning brand new kitchen with a large dining room table seating 8. A small bathroom is conveniently located on the first floor. The kitchen opens out to the private patio with a built in brick bbq.

The two main double bedrooms, with king size beds, are located on the first floor, one with a balcony overlooking the private garden, the second with double doors opening for views over the Tuscan hills. A large shared bathroom offers a power shower, toilet, bidet and sink.

Moving up to the third floor you will find a spacious open plan family room comprising one king size bed and two singles. This room leads on to the third bathroom which boasts a large Travetino bath with shower.

Walking outside the house you will find a large outdoor swimming pool set into the hillside. The pool is shared with the other apartments and includes a changing area. Across the cobbled road from the house is the lovely trattoria where you can find a delicious meal for lunch or dinner, or grab a morning coffee and pastry while taking in the spectacular views of the surrounding hills.

Local Description

Vergelle is situated in the heart of the Val D’Orcia, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, in the province of San Giovanni D’Asso. The Val D’Orcia offers unparalleled views of characteristic Tuscan landscapes with rolling hills, ravines, winding river beds and acres of olives groves and vineyards.

The villa is well situated for site seeing, within easy driving distance to the famous historic medieval walled city Siena (40kms) and very close to dozens of other small and beautiful towns including the famous wine producing towns of Montalcino (Brunello) and Montepulciano (Vino Nobile), and the very pretty and historical towns of Pienza (21kms) and San Quirico D’Orcia (13kms).

Vergelle is 4 kms from Torrenieri which has a number of local stores – supermarket, various bars and restaurants, a bank and pharmacy amongst others. Torrenieri is also connected by a colloquial train service that connects with Siena and also allows you to amble around various villages on the way – the service runs from Spring to Autumn.

The hamlet of Vergelle has seen extensive renovation during 2007 & 2008 and now consists of three large connected townhouses (converted from an Old School building) and a small number of apartments. The hamlet also boasts a lovely local restaurant that provides excellent food and good service all at a very reasonable price.
