Large villa near Siena - Recently restored to a very high standard, La Gioconda is a beautiful country house set amid the stunning unspoilt countryside of the Val d'Orcia in the south eastern part of the Siena region.

The property offers typical Tuscan charm, with either beamed or vaulted ceilings, tiled floors, elegantly furnished living areas with period antiques, comfortable bedrooms and fabulous outdoor living areas, all with great views across the surrounding valley. Within the estate is a private spa and wine cellar where treatments and tastings can be arranged.

This location is ideal for visiting many of the delightful towns and villages of the region, including Pienza in under ten minutes or the famous wine town of Montepulciano in just fifteen. For trips slightly further afield, easy day trips can be made into neighbouring Umbria, while classic Tuscan cities like Siena are under an hour away.
