About the Property

8 bedrooms with 4 baths in an antique hamlet setting with private pool and a/c

Come and discover this unspoiled and magnificent area of Tuscany known as the Orcia Valley where you will be enchanted by the views, the cuisine and the wine, yet still unknown to the masses, This is what we call the secret area of Tuscany that only the most discerning discover. Villa Argante is decorated in what we call the RusticLux decor and if for up to 16 guests. Once a famous photographer ,who is also a dear family friend, referred to our farmhouses in this way and emphasized that we have lovingly managed to maintain the true flavor of Tuscany. The house has 2 separate entrances and is completely surrounded by nature and can accommodate up to 16 guests, in 8 double bedrooms . There is a possibility of including the small dependance farmhouse with an extra 2 bedrooms at an extra fee, to guarantee complete privacy . . A beautiful swimming pool in the center of the complex has a unique view of the valley overlooking the olive groves. A large room on the ground floor of the main house has been recently restored respecting in every way its country roots and is used for events.

This luxury location in Tuscany is much more than a farmhouse villa, and is ideal for your holiday in the province of Siena. No roads or traffic noises will disturb your holiday in the oasis of Borgo Castelrotto. The surrounding romantic landscape of Val d’Orcia is a mix of natural woodland and delightful rural views, with pastures, vineyards and olive trees, the symbol of Siena, that give excellent local Tuscan products such as wine, cheese, and extra virgin olive oil. There are great paths for walking, hiking, jogging or horseback riding nearby.
Villa Argante refers to the main house and requests to add the small cottage can be made by email.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1900

About the owner: This property is part of the organic wine farm of Castelnuovo Tancredi, and this hamlet where the Villa Argante is, was renovated about 10 years ago. Every year we make improvements to keep it comfortable for our guests. This should be your home away from home and we will try to do everything to make your stay with us as memorable as possibile. On the estate, which encompasses over 600 hectares of this territory, we grow grapes for our organic wine production, organic cereals such as wheat and barley, and maintain the animal reserve where we have reeboks, pheasants, hare and wild boar. I am a sommelier master level and love to talk about our wine production to eager listeners and wine lovers.

Why the Owner Chose Buonconvento SI, Italy:
FOR ITS LEISURE AND LANDMARKS Villa Argante is surrounded by the stunning landscape of the Orcia Valley in this still quite unknown area of Tuscany, where you can visit typical old towns and villages as well as famous monuments, or practice many sports and leisure activities. We will be happy to assist you with information and directions to make your stay with us more enjoyable. Here are a few suggestions to enjoy your holiday in Tuscany: For those who love sport and adventures, between Siena and the Chianti area, in the beautiful Val D’Orcia or near Mount Amiata, there are Horse-riding schools and centers,Hot-air balloons,Mountain bike itineraries with a wine tasting included, some of them are particularly known among lovers of this sport, such as “L’Eroica”, a tour along the track of the famous vintage bicycle competition, held in October every year. For those who seek tranquility and relax, or love the contemplation and spirituality plunged in the inspiring Tuscan environment, we suggest these activities: Trekking on the antique Francigena way, Visit the town of Pienza and take a trip to the magic atmosphere of Italian Renaissance, Easy day excursions to Montalcino, and other hilltop towns of Tuscany, or play a round of Golf

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Annabelle Moseley says it so perfectly in "A Tuscan Countryside": "Drive as a passenger through Tuscany, and even if you squint or fall asleep, but catch brief glances, through curtained blinks, still you will see rows of green and cream-yellow fields, vineyards, grey crooked branches pointing to the soil like rows of gnarled , arthritic fingers poised above piano keys. You'll catch the green guard of cypress trees, thin as pipe cleaners, straight as hard-backed chairs. Farmhouses, roofed in rust and terra-cotta, bodied in hazel hues, paths that meander through the fields like sienna colored snakes among the wheat fields and olive groves.Hills will always interrupt the valleys-bends will surprise roads, and even in winter, fields are crowded with the sleep of sunflowers waiting for August!" This will be your absolute favorite vacation of all, and we guarantee that you won't want to leave!
