The area of the Val D'Orcia is definitely the most beautiful part of Tuscany and anyone who comes to visit for the first time remains encaptured by its beauty, tranquillity and historical hilltop towns and sites to visit. Each of our farmhouses has been lovingly restored and decorated by the owners themselves making each home unique, and cozy in its own way. The three houses have the use of a shared pool, surrounded by olive trees, which overlooks the gorgeous valley of the Val d'Ombrone . The Casanova and the Fagianaia apartments are in their own farmhouses are both on the second floor of their respective stone farmhouse. This is typical of the country homes of this area where the animals and stalls were located on the ground level and the families lived upstairs. These spacious and well decorated accommodations each have 4 large double bedrooms with two baths, one of which has a shower only.The large living room with the sit-in fireplace divides the apartment of Casanova into two separate wings, leaving 2 bedrooms on each side, allowing privacy to its guests. This floorplan makes this accommodation suitable for 2 families with children who are vacationing together. The Fagianaia apartment also has the possibility of a 5th bedroom,on request only, with single beds that is perfect for small children. This apartment has 8 single beds and 1 double bed, and 2 bathrooms, one with bath/shower and the other en suite for 2 bedrooms, with a shower.

The Fienile Cottage has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms on two levels. This was originally a hayloft and has a special loft feel to it.The upstairs bedroom has a large bed with shower bathroom, while the downstairs bedroom has 2 single beds and shower bathroom.

Staying here at the Hamlet of Castelrotto, which means the broken castle, will make you fall in love with the rolling hills of Tuscany and the medieval hilltop towns, the festivals and cultural highlights that this marvelous "undiscovered" region, known as the Val D'Orcia, has to offer. Access to the house is along a gravel country road that winds through the estate's own vineyards that lead you to the Hamlet. You'll be enchanted by the light in this particular area- in fact a world renowned American photographer published a book on the special light in this part of Tuscany using the photographs that were taken during one of his many visits here at the property!

Further details

The main farmhouse can be rented separately or as two different units together for a large group of up to 16 persons. We arrange marvelous country style weddings as well in this Hamlet, so if you are want us to organize your special day, please don't hesitate to ask us to help you out! Wine tastings are done in our cantina and italian cooking classes can be arranged too.

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.

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: Montalcino, San Quirico d' Orcia, Vescovado di Murlo

Buonconvento

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.

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

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

San Gimignano, famous for its towers

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

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 ,impressive the Duomo and the Etruscan rests

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.
