Siena chateau / country house description

Santa Chiara is the name of an old 17th century convent recently completely restored. It is a unique holiday destination- a small hilltop country estate located at the gates of Siena. Only fifteen minutes walk from the Campo, the shell-shaped mediaeval square at the heart of the city in which the Palio is run twice a year.

It is a big building with three apartments other than the owner's home. The welcoming accommodation is set in five hectares of beautiful garden offering stunning views of both the medieval city and the surrounding countryside. Guests can walk the estate and relax in the shade of its many trees, swim in the large outdoor pool, enjoy a game of tennis on the private court, and dine al fresco against the backdrop of the beautiful tuscan landscape.

Early in the morning, it is not unusual to run into pheasants, hares and deer. In your wandering, make sure not to miss a gigantic holm oak whose branches almost touch the ground, thus creating a large natural dome. Further down the road, you can cross a little bridge and get to a wide public area where you can find exercise equipment as well as a playground for children.

Olive trees are a feature the grounds, and this theme also run through the properties with furnishing as of olive wood, bathroom products made from olive extract and the estate’s olive oil available to purchase for the dinner table.

                          Santa Chiara is a uniquely located country estate on a hillside just outside the walls of Siena, with views towards the city on one side and over the Tuscan countryside on the other. It is about 15 minutes walk from the Campo, the shell-shaped mediaeval square at the heart of the city in which the Palio is run twice a year. With a large swimming pool in beautiful surroundings, the property offers relaxation as well as an ideal base for exploring the city. Situated as it is in the centre of Tuscany, many other beautiful and historic places are also accessible by car. Florence and San Gimignano are both within an hour’s drive. Arezzo and Lake Trasimeno are not much farther. The hill towns of ‘the Chianti’ as well as Montepulciano and Pienza are easily accessible. For the more adventurous, Assisi and Perugia are farther afield (100 km or so) but a good dual carriageway road makes them an easy day trip. Few other properties can offer the same combination of a relaxing poolside holiday
