Property description

Villa Banditello.
6 people, about 1405 sf., restored in 1999, enjoys a splendid view towards south and west with large hay for sitting outside.
A three entrance ground floor, with french windows to the garden, has a brightly and well equipped kitchen ( gas machine with oven, fridge, fire place-barbecue, washing machine), with store room besides. The kitchen leads into a two room lounge with a Tuscan fire place at one end, furnished with antique pieces of furniture and many sofas and armchairs. A small toilet is available at ground floor.
Stone steps take to first floor which has a master bedroom with en-suite bathroom (tub) and splendid view over Montepulciano valley. Other two twin bedrooms share a bathroom with shower. Wrought iron beds, old rustic furniture, small wooden toilet mirrors, doors and in wall- wardrobes have been chosen according Tuscan country tradition. The house is airy and bright all day long. Central heating is available. Panoramic space outside equipped with chaises-longues and iron-made chairs and table.
The property.
Farm Capanne di Sopra is located 1.2 kms from the hamlet of Montefollonico, in a quiet setting which enjoys the unmatched skyline of Montepulciano, with its masterpiece temple of San Biagio, Val d’Orcia's hilly border and top of Mount Amiata.
The property is situated on a slope at 450 meters of altitude, covering a 5 hectars hilly surface, with an olive grove and a small vineyard, which give an “extravergine” olive oil, and a Chianti Colli Senesi DOCG red wine.
The two stone farmhouses of the property have been restored in accordance with Tuscan traditions, and carefully furnished with owner's family pieces. The two houses, although closed one another, are independent and assure absolutely privacy to residents. The houses are fully equipped for six: in the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms. Barbecues in the kitchen. The houses have: drinkable water from public utility, instant hot water, mobile telephone, washing machines and central heating. Baby cots and high chairs. There are a number of sun chairs and iron made chairs and table to dine outside. A USB key is available for Internet 3G access.
To preserve the character of the site, the owners chose not to build any swimming pool. In any city nearby there is a public swimming pool.
Some 400 meters from the paved road, the site remains secluded while accessible only via a private driveway, ensuring that you'll be staying undisturbed, in the midst of olive groves, vineyards and woods. Parking area at the entrance of the property.
Historical and cultural sites nearby include Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino, Cortona, Chiusi, Monte San Savino, Siena, Arezzo, Perugia and Lake Trasimeno which are all within 75 minutes drive. The thermal spas and bathing at Chianciano, Bagno Vignoni, Bagni San Filippo and Rapolano are no more than half an hour's drive away, and three swimming pools within 10 kilometers.
You need a car to get there. Montefollonico provides basic services ( food shops, bank, pharmacy, restaurants, and sport bar); Montepulciano is 7 km drive, Torrita di Siena is at 5 km. Take A1 Highway ( Autostrada del sole) and leave it at Val di Chiana or Chiusi exit. Then you need about half an hour drive to the farm. The closest Railway station is at Chiusi, on the Roma – Firenze line, about 15 miles away. At reservation we will forward you a detailed road map and instructions.
