The Guest House is 50 meters from the main house Spazzavento. Recently built in the typical Tuscan style with exposed chestnut beams, terracotta tile floors and modern touches. The property enjoys spectacular views of Mount Amiata to the north, and the medieval village of Seggiano to the south. Olive groves, oak trees, fruit trees, flower beds and lawn areas make up the 4 acres of private land surrounding the property. Your stay includes use of the pool, shared with the 1-family main house. Situated at the rear of the main house, the lovely mosaic pool with outdoor shower echoes the natural contours of the land. This superb 'get away from it all' property is simply charming, offering a unique holiday in one of the least developed areas of Tuscany.
Location: The guest house is surrounded by countryside, peaceful and secluded. However, it is also only a five minute walk down a country road to the medieval hilltop village of Seggiano, where you will find a supermarket, restaurant, bar and ice cream shop. It is located in the 'Montecucco' wine region, using the same highly acclaimed 'Sangiovese' grape grown in the world famous 'Brunello' vineyards of Montalcino, (20 minutes away by car.) The majority of food found in the restaurants and shops is farmed locally; roast meats, fresh pasta, porcini mushrooms and pecorino cheese are particular local favorites. There are plenty of trails for leisurely walks and hikes in all directions.

About the area: The magnificent mountain of AMIATA (1750m) once the sacred mountain to the Etruscans, is perfect for summer picnics and winter skiing. During the season fresh porcini mushrooms grow along the mountain trails. OR try the rejuvenating hot springs, of Bagni Vignoni, Petriolo, and San Fillipo to unwind. Enjoy the local olive oil internationally acclaimed with its very own DOP. The GUEST HOUSE is a wonderful place to relax in between seeing the famous sights of MONTALCINO, SANT ANTIMO, PIENZA, MONTEPULCIANO and SIENA. The area is unspoiled and still a habitat for wild flowers, birds and animals such as boar, porcupine, badger, hare and deer. The Tyrrhenian coast is an hour drive if you want to enjoy a day at the beach; the sand and sea are some of the cleanest in Italy.
