The house is set at the border of the wildlife reserve of the 'Montagnola Senese' a hilly area that is characterized by beautiful holm oak woods and is famous for its castles, farm estates and countless Romanesque parish churches. The area, which is full of paths, is ideal for those who love going for walks and trekking. - Special events: July 2 and August 16 the world-famous Palio of Siena!

Owner info

About the owner: I'am coming originally from Germany, but I live in Italy since 1976. My wife Anna and me are married sind 1979 und we have two children, who actually study at University.

Why the Owner Chose Sovicille:
We bought this house, because it was our dream: 20 years we lived in the village of Sovicille and this house was our dream: it was the best situated house of Sovicille (alone on the hill, but also near the village with all comforts) and at the same time an old house with a history, which is rooted deep in the middle ages.

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
We have bought this old house, where the plants grew into the cracks of the walls, in 1999, and we restored it completely with traditional materials and new (bio-) technics. The columns of the 12th century, the absolute peace of the wood, the meadow behind the house with birds, deers, sqirrels etc., which we can see: simply an idyll, in the summertime, in spring, in autumn and also in the winter. In the summertime also the pool does his contribute to relax and refresh.
