Spacious Tuscan House
About the home
Positioned south-east of Siena this spacious 4 bedroom apartment has much to offer. The owner has sympathetically developed the house which is located in a small rural hamlet. The quality of the fittings is excellent, with most of the apartment interior being brand new. The hamlet is located in the heart of the 'crete Senese', the wonderful landscape to the south of Siena. Access to the hamlet is along a 'white road' – approximately 1km off the main Siena–Asciano road.
Parking in front of the house and entry on the ground floor where there is a reception room. Stairs lead to the main house and here is a wonderful terrace for dining al-fresco and relaxing. The main door leads to the well equipped large kitchen – dishwasher, oven, 5 gas hobs, fridge / freezer. Beyond the kitchen there is a comfortable living room and four double bedrooms. All the bedrooms are spacious and comfortably furnished. One of the bedrooms has access onto the terrace. There are two bathrooms, one with a shower and one with a bath.

The Tuscany / Siena Province region
With Siena just a short drive away and the marvels of the crete Senese to discover, we feel that Casa Grania is a great base to explore this region. There are swimming, fitness and beauty facilities half an hour away.
Only 15km from Siena the historical medieval city with its unique Piazza (Campo), towers, cathedral, baptistery, museums and wonderful cobbled stone street full of exclusive shops, patisserie and excellent eaterie.
The famous wine region of Montalcino (home of Brunello wine), Pienza the Renaissance jewel and the frescoed abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore are all a short distance from the farmhouse.
The Asciano / Crete Senesi area
In the hamlet are farm buildings, and you will have the chance to mix with the locals. The setting is beautiful, with views over the rolling hills in every direction. There is a further terrace area where you can barbeque and enjoy the ever changing landscape.
The surrounding area is perfect for walking and cycling also an idyllic spot for those who want to relax and enjoy a tranquil holiday

What a wonderful experience. The villa itself was beautiful. A classic Tuscan farmhouse. It was centrally located for day trips to several regions. A car is a must. We picked up fresh pasta and... more

We stayed at farmhouse with our family 6 adults and 2 children ages 2 and 5. The property was fabulous and met the needs of our grandchildren and children. Location is good but a car is needed in order to get to Sienna and other places if interest. I would also recommend a cell phone. The bedrooms are large and beds were comfortable. David the owner worked with us for 6 months helping us plan the trip. He had someone meet us when we arrived to show us around. The views are gorgeous and the outdoor pergola was great to sit, relax and enjoy a drink. The farmhouse comes well equipped, with a large kitchen, plenty of bedding and the washing machine came in handy especially with 2 young children. Buy your olive oil right at the farmhouse as it is situated in the heart of olive groves. We hired a woman to come in one night to cook a traditional Italian meal. The outdoor dining area is perfect to eat and enjoy the evenings. The closest town is 10 minutes where you can buy groceries. Can not say enough about the farmhouse experience.

The farmhouse was more that we every imagined - spacious yet homely with all the mod cons. The outside area where we ate most meals looked all the way out Siena from one window and the other was through the olive groves and fields where the sheep grazed. The recently built pagoda provided a 360 degree view of the Tuscan hills and was a must for every sunset.
The farmhouse was located about 20 minutes from Siena by car but was great to be away from civilisation and in the countryside of Tuscany. The immediate areas surrounding the farmhouse had plenty to offer with lots of small towns and weekend markets. And the Monte Olivet Maguire Abbey is a must see. We were able to do plenty of day trips all over Tuscany and Umbria as well.
This property is perfect for adults and families with a car and wanting to get away from big cities.
The owner even called in advance to ensure we had everything we needed and the manager of this property went out of her way to ensure our stay was as pleasant as possible.
Perfect Tuscan Vacation House!
What a fabulous property! The views in every direction are breathtaking; we loved just sitting outside and looking around us. Its in the middle of the Tuscan countryside and a perfect house for getting away from the hustle and bustle and just relaxing. The house is lovely and had everything we could have needed. The bedrooms are large and well furnished; the kitchen has everything one could possibly want. We easily prepared full meals for the whole group and were even able to grill outside. The town with the nearest grocery store is 15 minutes drive and was fully stocked. There are markets in the nearby towns almost everyday of the week so we never had trouble finding fresh produce and other goodies. It is a perfect base for exploring the surrounding towns.Enquire now
