If your looking for an ideal vacation spot to relax and enjoy the magnificently unspoilt Tuscan countryside while relaxing with a good book by the pool, or if your prefer making cultural excursions to any of the numerous surrounding hilltowns, Castelnuovo Tancredi is the place for families with children, or even groups of friends who want to get away from it all!

The nearest town, Buonconvento, only 4 km. away,is one of the 200 historical hamlets throughout Italy that are part of the Club of the Borghi Più Belli d'Italia.

This spacious, comfortable and well decorated farmhouse apartment will make you fall in love with the rolling hills of Tuscany and the medieval hilltop towns, festivals and cultural highlights that this marvellous region has to offer. The Orcia Valley is still quite undiscovered, and for this reason it is the ultimate spot to stay in Tuscany . The hamlet of Castelrotto, or broken castle, is composed of 3 separate and independent accommodations, all with their own private gardens and intimate outdoor eating areas, although they share a pool. Care and attention were of the priority when this property was renovated to maintain the special feel and atmosphere of Tuscany. Original Tuscan furnishings are what make these accommodations very special.

The Pheasant farmhouse/apartment (or the Casa Vecchia as the locals refer to it) is on the first floor of its respective stone farmhouse. This house was named after the wild Pheasants that are numerous on our property and you can hear them occasionally cackling around. A typical aspect of the country homes of this area is that the living quarters are on the first floor, because the animals and stalls were located on the ground level. This spaciously comfortable and well decorated accommodation has 4 large double bedrooms with two baths, one of which has a shower only.The wonderfully spacious living room with its huge sit in fireplace is the heart of the house, off which is the kitchen to one end and the bedroom- wing on the other end. This floorplan makes this accommodation suitable for 2 families with children who are vacationing together. The Pheasant farmhouse/ apartment also has a small game/playroom for children or reading room for adults. This apartment has 4 single beds and 2 double beds, and 2 bathrooms, one with bath/shower and the other en suite for 2 bedrooms, with a shower. There is a 5th daybed in the reading/game room if needed.

The Tuscany region

Presently known as an important agricultural centre on the gentler side of the Sienese Clay Hills. Buonconvento already flourished in ancient times thanks to its particular geographical situation; at the confluence of the Arbia and Ombrone rivers on one hand, and along the route of the all-important mediaeval Via Francigena on the other.

Here are a few suggestions for things to do while you stay in the area:

-Horse riding and trekking in this unspoilt countryside

-Hot air ballooning

-Numerous bike paths with designated itineraries such as the now well known "Eroica", which also organizes every year in October, an itinerary along the paths with old fashion and vintage bicycles

For those who seek tranquility and pure relaxation during their stay in Tuscany, and are inspired by the spirituality that this environment transmits, then we suggest the following:

-Hot-spring resorts in Val D'Orcia (Bagno Vignone)

-Trekking on the antique Francigena way

-Visit the beautiful town of Pienza and take a trip to the magic atmosphere of Italian Renaissance

-Excursions to Montalcino, Tuscany

-Golf club (Borgo La Bagnaia is the nearest one)

Amongst the numerous sights worth seeing are an uncommon number of fine Liberty-style noble farm-houses. that are scattered amongst the hilltops and valleys all around the area. There are many "castles" as well that one encounters enroute while driving around the countryside,such as the fortress of Bibbiano Guiglieschi, over a thousand years old, the Tower of Bibbiano and the great architectural complex of Castelnuovo Tancredi.

Nearby towns within 10 minute drive: Montalcino, San Quirico d' Orcia, Vescovado di Murlo

Distances Siena 28 Km - Florence 95 Km - Pisa 140 Km

The main tourist attraction (apart from the typical gastronomic delights such as the Val d'Arbia DOC white wine and vinsanto, or the white truffles from the Sienese Clay Hills) is, however, the important Sacred Art Museum, which houses works from the local churches: amongst these are paintings by Sano di Pietro and Matteo di Giovanni, as well as interesting wooden and marble sculptures.

Buonconvento

After Siena town, the most famous places in the area are:

San Gimignano, famous for its towers and an easy day trip

Monteriggioni, the walled town, pretty but very small.

Colle val d' Elsa, is a big town divided into 3 different levels, colle bassa, alta and castle

Castellina in Chianti, the heart of Chianti where the famous wine is made

Radda in Chianti, for me the prettiest town of the Chianti area

Murlo,a very interesting etruscan museum at Vescovado di Murlo

Asciano, the area nearby and the near Abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore

Pienza, the perfect town

Montalcino, the town of the famous wine with many great restaurants

San Quirico d' Orcia ,the door over the Val d' Orcia

Bagno Vignoni ,antique thermal baths

Montepulciano ,beautiful rinascimental town

Radicofani at the foot of the Monte Amiata

Rocca d' Orcia with the imposing tower

Chiusi , an impressive town with the Duomo and the Etruscan remains

Abbey of San Galgano is definitely worth the visit!

Abbey of Sant' Antimo is another must!

Twice a year on July 2 and Aug. 16 the famous Palio of Siena takes place and is definitely one of the most popular of italian traditional festivities.

There is a large supermarket in Buonconvento (just 3 km. away ) where you will find everything. In the same town, there is a butcher, a tabacchi shop, numerous little bars and restaurants, 2 different banks, and gastronomically oriented shops. There is a farmer's market every Saturday as well.
