Set in an old olive grove, with spectacular views of the Tuscan countryside, Casa Oliveto also enjoys the gentle breezes of a hill-top location & the conveniences of being within the medieval village of Castelmuzio.
Spend your time swimming in or lounging by the large infinity pool or exploring the nearby sights. Don't feel like driving to a restaurant today? No problem. Walk for a couple of minutes to the village restaurants. Need to replenish food or beverage supplies? Again, a two minute walk will take you to the village grocery store.
The pool is fenced & has child-safe gates, so your wandering toddlers can only access it with you.
Castelmuzio is within easy reach of many historical towns & sights - Pienza (10 mins drive), Montepulciano (20), Montalcino (30), Cortona (30), Lake Trasimeno (30), Siena (45), Florence (75).
Apart from the local bar/restaurant & well-stocked grocery store, there are numerous restaurants in the surrounding area, all serving high quality Tuscan cuisine.
The nearby town of Sinalunga has several large supermarkets & the ValdiChiana Outlet has numerous clothing stores. A little further afield (60 mins) is the designer fashion outlet, 'The Mall', where major international labels can be had for subtantially less than high street prices.

About this location
The Tuscany region
Castelmuzio is the essence of Tuscany. Set amongst cypress trees, olive groves & vineyards, & surrounded by ancient hill-top towns & villages, enjoy authentic Tuscan cuisine & local wines such as Brunello, Vino-Nobile & Chianti. Immerse yourself in the culture & history of Siena & Florence or in the warm waters of the spa towns of Bagno Vignoni, Rapolano or Chianciano. Explore Etruscan, Roman, medieval & renaissance architecture.
Castelmuzio is of etrusco-roman origin & is officially listed in documents dating from the 9th century. On the edge of the village is the church of Santo Stefanno, dating back to the 8th century & probably built on the remains of a Roman temple. The remains of tombs & a small complex of baths from the 2nd century have been found nearby. The surrounding area is dotted with medieval abbeys, churches, villas & palazzos, set amongst gently undulating olive groves & vineyards.
