Asciano villa description

Casa Pina is an apartment of 50 square meters (about 538 square feet), for
four people, with private enclosed garden of 70 square meters (about 750 square
feet) and use of a swimming pool. The entire apartment is on the ground floor,
and is part of a cottage surrounded by green space. It is part of a farming
estate located on a low hillside (200 meters, or about 656 feet, above sea level),
situated in the heart of the Crete Senese, 4 km (about 2.5 miles) from Terme di
Rapolano, 20 km (about 12.5 miles) from Chianti, 30 km (about 17.5 miles) from
Siena and 90 km (about 56 miles) from Florence. It is equipped with winter

The house

At Casa Pina you will find a double-bedded room, a living room with a fireplace
and divan bed for two people, a small kitchen and a spacious bathroom with
shower. The bathroom is equipped for the disabled. The kitchen area is equipped
with four-burner cooker, oven and refrigerator. In the living room, there is
satellite television.

From the house, you can reach the private garden through a glass door. Here, you
will find table and chairs, deck-chairs for sunbathing, vases of flowers and a
lovely lawn. The garden is fenced, and your children will be able to play there
in peace. You will have a laundry room at your disposition.

The swimming pool

Available for your use is a beautiful pool surrounded by the lawn. Around the pool you will find deck-chairs and umbrellas. The
pool is shared among the guests of the other four small apartments. It is open
from June 1 until September 30.

Stretched out by the pool, you will be able to enjoy a beautiful and expansive
view of the gentle hills that surround you.

The location

At Casa Pina, you will spend your vacation in an historic and fascinating
location. A few steps away from the house, there is a large Etruscan tomb, dug into the travertine stone which is abundant in the underground.

Casa Pina is one of five apartments which have been restored and which make up
part of a farming estate, at the heart of which is an historic medieval mill.

This ancient stone building has been restored with love and respect for its
original form, and is lovely to look at, standing alone and surrounded by
greenery. Inside, there was a small mill-wheel, which was activated by one of
the thermal springs with which this area is so richly endowed.

Not far from here there is the one-story building in which Casa Pina is located.

Surrounding the entire complex you will find a beautiful lawn, divided by narrow
stone pathways that cut across the greenery, and ornamented with urns
overflowing with red geraniums. On this lawn, here and there, you will find on
display some of the antique tools of "contadina" (peasant) life.

Available for use by all the guests, you will find a barbecue and a wood-burning
oven, playground equipment for the children, and 3000 square meters (about 3230
square feet) of green space.

The farm practices organic agriculture, and you can buy extra-virgin olive oil,
wine, vegetables and fruit on the premises.

Also available for your use is a wine cellar, equipped with an Internet
connection and stereo system. In this room, the proprietors offer complimentary
wine tastings. In particular, on Mondays you can participate in a series of wine

The proprietors live on the property, and will graciously make themselves
available to you to provide information about tourist attractions, or to help
meet whatever various needs you may have.

You will be spending your vacation in the middle of one of the most
characteristic and often-photographed regions of Tuscany, an area that extends
from Siena to Montalcino. You will be able to gaze across a stretch of gentle
clay hills, which in springtime are resplendent with the various green tints of
the pastures or of cultivated grains, and cloaked in summertime with myriad
shades of gold and of ochre.

Where the grain ends, the vineyards begin, most notably in the zone of
Montalcino, famous for the Brunello wines that are produced there. And at the
summit of practically every hill, you will find rows of small, slender,
dark-green cypress trees, rural houses, churches and ancient fortifications, as
well as medieval villages marked by the tall, distant spikes of their towers.

Casa Pina is equipped with a parking space and with winter heating. It is
possible to rent bicycles.

At Casa Pina, your pets will also be welcome.

Nearby tourist attractions

Staying at Casa Pina you will be 4 km (about 2.5 miles) from Rapolano Terme. In
the thermal baths of Rapolano you will be able to take every type of curative
spa treatment in the warm pools, which are also open in the evenings.

The nearest place where you will find shops, restaurants and supermarkets is the
village of Serre di Rapolano, 2 km (about 1.25 miles) away.

You will be nearby the cities of art: Siena is 28 km away (17.5 miles), Florence
70 km (56 miles), Perugia 70 km (43.5 miles), Arezzo 40 km (25 miles); and
nearby are the most characteristic Tuscan villages that you can visit, starting
with Montalcino, birthplace of the famous Brunello wine, which is just 30 km (19
miles) away.

If you like handicrafts, you will find in the Crete Senesi a multitude of
workshops in which terracotta is made according to ancient traditions.

In this area, from September to November, the white truffle—the most rare and
precious of truffles—is found.

Don’t miss the opportunity to travel the “via Chiantigiana," which is the road
that cuts across the entire production zone of Chianti wines.

Along this road, lined to the left and right with rows of vines, you will find
hills topped with castles and villages, the results of two millennia of history.

You can visit cantinas, discover excellent small restaurants, and experience for
yourself the friendliness of the locals which is such a great part of the
fascination that Tuscany holds for the rest of the world.

If you enjoy hiking, you can walk the Senesi hills, or that part of the via
Franchigena that crosses the Montagnola Senese, a protected hilly area, covered
with chestnut trees, where nature is truly uncontaminated.
