Property description

“Casa di Leo” Holiday Home is a big, wonderful and a bit Romantic house and it is located in Belforte, a small and delightful characteristic medieval village just 3 km away from Radicondoli.
Thanks to its strategic position on a hilltop, Belforte was founded as military fortress by the Romans. Largely preserved today, the walls which surround the village are in the care of Commission for the Architectural and Landscape Heritage for the Province of Siena . The latest written information about the village dates from 1215. The Holiday Home is ideal for families, groups of friends or simply perfect for people who desire to spend a relaxing holiday in the lap of nature and art, among the beautiful and sweet Tuscan hills. The Holiday Home is very big (200 sm) and it was largely reorganized in 2012. Building materials have been well-chosen, according both to quality and naturalness. Work and hand-painted Italian ceramics were used both in the big bathroom on the first floor and in the little one in the mansard; the parquet, which covers the whole area, has been totally made in Italy, it is natural and completely absent of further artificial treatments. All that has been done according to a philosophy which favours quality over quantity.

The house is organized on three different floors. On the lower floor there is a big typical taverna with wooden-beamed ceiling: there is a big living room with sofas, armchairs and TV, ideal for parties, for enjoying a film in front of the huge fireplace during the cold winter, or even just for playing board games with friends. Here it is also possible to find some local geographical maps and a big bookcase, if you want to relax and read a bit, and there is also a little musicians corner with piano and a guitar, so that musicians can feel at home and play.
The first floor is the bigger and main one. Here there is a wide living room, a modern kitchen, a dining room, three bright bedrooms and two bath rooms. On the second floor there is a bath room and the biggest bedroom of Leo’s house; in front of this one there is a panoramic terrace/solarium overlooking the amazing landscape.
The house is surrounded by a huge neat garden (700 sm) with flowers and fruit trees (cheery, apricot, plum, grape, apple and pear trees), two wonderful pergolas and a new swimming-pool! This one has been built in full compliance with the natural environment and the surrounding walls (in the care of Commission for the Architectural and Landscape Heritage). Near the swimming pool, there is an area with sunbeds, beach umbrellas and chairs.
Animals are, as general rule, welcome!
Casa di Leo’s owners are a young and friendly couple, active and efficient, always ready to help you to make your stay unforgettable. They both speak good English and French and are always available not only to give you simple information and suggestion, but trying to transmit you love and passion for such wonderful places, hoping that you could also fall in love with them.

“Casa di Leo” is situated in Belforte, a little village on the North of Siena and it is an Hamlet of Radicondoli. Radicondoli is a town of about 1300 inhabitants located in the northern part of the 'Metalliferous Hills' on the borders of the Alta Maremma between the Val d’Elsa and the Val de Cecina. It is about 40 km from Siena and similar distances from Volterra, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano and Massa Marittim. The local economy is based mainly on forestry, sheep farming and employment in geothermal areas of the Val di Cecina where electricity is generated and boric acid is extracted. It is a lovely and peaceful area, but, at the same time, it lies close to the main world-famous cities of Tuscany, such as San Gimignano, Siena, Volterra, Firenze. The Tyrrhenian Sea is about 45 Km far from the house and so, it is around the corner. In Radicondoli it is possible to find two little supermarkets, a pharmacy, two restaurants (La Pergola and il Nazionale), a tobacconist’s, a theatre, an information point for tourists and everything you need! Sport facilities nearby Cycling, Hiking, Horse riding, Mountainbiking, Swimming, Tennis,


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: Alessandra and Leo were born in Turin, in the north west of Italy. They came in Tuscany in 1993 and they simply fell in love with the magic landscape of the region. They love art and nature: she's a painter and he's an actor and they are always avaiable to give information and advice.

Why the Owner Chose Belforte SI, Italy:
This property was bought in 2011 by the owners. The House was on sale and the first time we saw it, we were struck by the elegance and the peculiarities of the villa. What we particularly liked is the garden: from the outside of the house, it was not possible to imagine how wonderful and spacious it was.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The guests of Casa di Leo can have the possibility to enjoy a wonderful and relaxing holiday, according to their needs. On the one hand, they can decide to spend a restful time in a private, comfortable and spacious Holiday Home; on the other hand, they can choose to have an alternative holiday, travelling around the region, visiting historical and art cities and discoverinf natural areas of Tuscany.
