Owner info

Year Purchased: 2000

About the owner: We restored the vacation home we had always hoped to find to rent, but couldn't, in the countryside we love. Although we live and work now in the United States, we lived in Europe for several years and wanted a home to return to and enjoy. Our house was finished and appointed to be a home - not a rental. We know you will love it as much as we do!

Why the Owner Chose Asciano, Siena, Italy:
We bought this house because of the stunning beauty of the area - the Crete Senese - and its proximity to so many gorgeous, ancient hill towns and their world class wines and restaurants: Montalcino, Montepulciano, Pienza, Monteriggioni, and many others. Buonconvento, down the mountain from us, past the historic Abbazia di Monte Oliveto, is a charming center for eating and shopping.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
Our house is ideal for refined people who are looking for a place away from the crowds - a place of beauty and tranquility to relax with family and friends. It is a perfect place from which to bike through amazing wine country and forests of the Tuscan hills, taking a different direction each day. In the afternoons, you can bask by our beautiful pool and watch the sun set over the pool and hills, bathing the evening in gorgeous red light. At night, millions of stars, unavailable to most city dwellers, light the sky and one's imagination! Things to know: There are 2 small attached apartment units located on this hilltop setting with us. They are typically occupied by their lovely owners during June and July. There are separate entrances, dining areas, terraces, gardens, etc. There are thick stone walls between. The pool is common to all. During June and July there is a policy for not children under the age of 10.
