About the Property

Apartment, 1 Bedroom, 1 Bath, Sleeps 2, all amenities incl. WiFi

Named for it's unique view over the elegant 16th century Renaissance gardens, Casa sul Giardino is a fully-furnished, upper floor apartment for two located in the historical town center of San Quirico d'Orcia.

Each spacious, light-filled room offers glorious hardwood floors and 12-foot ceilings, and is finely furnished with Tuscan antiques and hand-wrought iron pieces from the artisans of Pienza.

The bedroom is fitted with a king-sized bed and offers direct access to the full bath. The open living room and dining/ kitchen area offer a cozy and communicative ambience, perfect for relaxing, socializing and dining. The modern kitchen is well-equipped, as the owners love to cook. Imagine the delights of trying out your favorite Tuscan recipes before taking them home to share with family and friends!

If you'd rather go out, Casa sul Giardino is within walking distance of at least 10 great places to dine, with family-run trattorias and restaurants. The village offers grocery stores and several fresh produce and specialties markets, along with multiple retail shops.


San Quirico d'Orcia is a charming and peaceful medieval town yet unspoiled by tourism. Located in the heart of the Val d'Orcia - named a world heritage site by UNESCO - you will be in the midst of the most beautiful landscapes of Tuscany and only minutes' drive from famous towns like Pienza, Montepulciano and Montalcino. Other historic towns like Florence, Cortona, Arrezzo and San Giminiano are all an easy day trip away.

If you want to spend a romantic vacation for two and discover the delights of Tuscan life, Casa sul Giardino is the place to stay!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: We bought Casa sul Giardino at a time in our lives when we didn't know where in the world we wanted to live, but definitely knew where we wanted to spend our vacations. It was a perfect decision!

Why the Owner Chose San Quirico d'Orcia SI, Italy:
When we discovered the Val d'Orica, we thought we had landed in paradise on earth. The natural beauty of the region is overwhelming. We are avid hikers and cyclists, we love good food and wine. There is an abundance of opportunities for all of these right at our doorstep. We figured, 'Why go anywhere else?!'
