Montalcino farmhouse description

La Giocosa is located in the most desirable region south of Siena, in the beautiful Val d'Orcia. This beautiful country house is located just 10 km from the historical centre of Montalcino. It sleeps up to eight people (four bedrooms and four bathrooms) and has been recently restored, with many modern conveniences. The house is part of a 15 hectare (38 acre) wine estate and it is surrounded by olives groves, vineyards and oak woods. It has a panoramic swimming pool and stunning views over the Val d'Orcia.

Montalcino has a good selection of groceries shops, a pharmacy, a post office, banks, wine shops and many delicious restaurants. The famous Sant' Antimo Abbey, one of the finest Romanesque churches in Tuscany, is located just outside of town. Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Orvieto, Viterbo and a wealth of sites and attractions are within easy reach. The countryside between Sarteano and Radicofani is dotted with monasteries and castles, and the Val d'Orcia itself is a spectacular natural and cultural attraction.

Facilities for horseback riding (20 km), tennis (12 km) and golf (60 km) are available nearby. The beaches of the Maremma are 60 kilometers away. The nearest restaurant is in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, just 2 km from the house.

An unpaved private road (about 800 meters) leads to the house from the main road; this access is not suitable for low slung cars. The house is built out on two floors, connected by a wrought iron and travertine staircase.

Ground floor:
Entrance hall
Large open-plan living room with original Tuscan terracotta tiled floors, oak beams, fireplace, splendid views; an arch leads to a second living area
Dining area with a table for 10
Fully equipped kitchen
The laundry room with washing machine
Study room with Internet access, satellite TV, stereo (single sofa bed)
1 double bedroom with en suite bathroom with shower
First floor:
1 double bedroom, en suite bathroom with tub and shower
1 double bedroom, en suite bathroom with shower
1 double bedroom with fireplace and access to the garden through external staircase
1 bathroom with tub

All the rooms have beautiful views. Three of the bedrooms have ceiling fans. The sofa bed in the study is suitable for a single person. It must be requested upon booking, however the maximum capacity of 8 people cannot be ecxeeded.

Garden:
Furnished gazebo with BBQ for al fresco dining
Pool 10 x 6 m outfitted with garden furniture, a gazebo and a second BBQ

All the rooms have beautiful views. Three of the bedrooms have ceiling fans. The back of the house opens onto a garden with a lovely view of the valley, a furnished gazebo with BBQ for al fresco dining. The swimming pool is set just 50 meters from the house and is outfitted with garden furniture, a gazebo and a second BBQ. A wine cellar is located 500 meters from the villa and features one of the best systems for the biodynamic production of Rosso and Brunello di Montalcino.

Places of interest:
Montalcino is beautifully situated on a hill inhabited since Etruscan times, swathed in vineyards and olive groves. It is a quiet, affluent, attractive town with pretty buildings and flower-filled squares, and many shops selling the Brunello di Montalcino.

Montepulcino is a graceful Tuscan hill town, best known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which was being praised by connoisseurs over 200 years ago and can certainly contend with Italy's best today.

Chiusi is one of our favourites because of its unpretentious liveliness. Compared to Montepulciano it is uncontaminated by tourism. Chiusi has a railway station - from here it is a quick ride to the city centre of Rome.

Monticchiello is a pleasant, walled village, whose crooked watch-tower is visible from afar. Next to the church is a small shop which sells local linens (towels, bedspreads) and materials in pure linen. They use traditional methods and patterns, and the results are extremely attractive.

Visit the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the semi-derelict monastery of Sant'Anna in Camprena - a very romantic setting which served as location for the film 'The English Patient'.

Close to the property is Rapolano Terme with two wonderful thermal spas - particularly beautiful are the San Giovanni Terme.

                      Montalcino is a classic Tuscan hill town, topped by a medieval fortress, and can be reached in 15 minutes by car. It offers a good selection shops and restaurants, and is famous for its Brunello wine (as well as the less pricey Rosso di Montalcino). There is an enoteca in the fortress where you can sample wines and other local delicacies. The famous Sant' Antimo Abbey, one of the finest Romanesque churches in Tuscany, is located just outside of town (2.5 km). Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Arezzo, Perugia, Orvieto, Viterbo and a wealth of sites and attractions are within easy reach. Facilities for horseback riding (20 km), tennis (12 km) and golf (60 km) are available nearby. The sandy beaches of the Maremma are 60 kilometers away. The nearest restaurant is in Castelnuovo dell'Abate, just 2 km from the house.
