The house lies in a top hill location with a beautiful panorama only 2 kms from the small charming village of Rigomagno, between Siena and Arezzo (both cities are around 30 Kms far away). It's a very quiet location. The house has a large garden with pool (13,5x5), whole for private use of the tenant. It is suitable for max 8 persons. There is 1 bedroom on the ground floor (2 single beds that can be joined on request), and 3 bedrooms on the 1st floor. All the bedrooms on the 1st floor have air conditioning. There are two terraces beside the house. One is equipped with table/chairs to eat outdoors, to cook also at disposition a stone oven/barbecue. The other has a very comfortable Unopiù garden furniture and is very appreciated by all our guests.

It is an ideal point of departure to visit Tuscany & Umbria. From the property in only 15 minutes driving you are on the highway Rome-Florence and in only 10 minutes on the speedway Siena-Perugia. There is a trainstation available in Sinalunga (8 Kms far away), the train brings you in around 2 hours in Rome and Florence. Shops are available in the town of Lucignano (7 Kms from the house). Lucignano, 414 above the see level, is a small town that represents one of the more extraordinary examples of medieval urban planning for its system of elliptic rings arrived intact over the centuries. There are also some restaurants. There is a large supermarket near Sinalunga at 9 kms. There is a large outlet & shopping center at 15 kms near the highway exit (Outlet village Valdichiana). There is a 9 holes (par 34) golf course 12 kms far away near Bettolle.

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is a region on Italy's west coast, on the Tyrrhenian sea. It is one of the most popular places to visit in a country that is itself one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. The first-time visitor to the lands of Tuscany can not but be amazed by the natural symbiosis between landscape and culture, history and the expressive means of architecture and town-planning, the urban and rural dimension, and its patrimony of art, architecture, monuments and museums. There are several reasons to visit Tuscany: some of the most important ones are visiting beautiful cities like Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Lucca, Pisa or charming town as San Gimignano, Volterra, Cortona, Montepulciano etc., eating Tuscan food and tasting the excellent local wines. Most of the important traditional wine producers are located along the axis formed by Florence and Siena. The most famous region is Chianti along with neighboring Montalcino and Montepulciano. Besides there are many other things you can do, for example, cycling, trekking, golf or go to a health spa. The Tuscany inland is characterized by hills, cultivated fields, farms, parish churches, castles, medieval hamlets. Tuscan mountains: in the Apuan Alps you will ascend into marble cathedrals, but you will also discover the kingdom of Lunigiana, full of enchanted caves and castles. The dazzling white of the quarries on one side and the wild, green valley of Garfagnana on the other. Go to the Casentino forests to discover their monasteries and hermitages along the way where nature is not the only thing to discover. You can be overcome by the triangular heights of Monte Amiata, so lonely, but at the same time full of roe and fallow deer, by mountains embraced in the world's most famous vineyards or by the wooded Abetone which transforms into pistes for ski lovers in the winter. There are miles and miles of pathways for trekking, mountain biking, skiing, but also for absolute rest. From southern Tuscany you can also easily visit Umbria, a region that has gained a name for being the green heart of Italy. Tourism is growing because of the unfamiliar harmony between nature & historic centres (the landscape is dotted with many picturesque medieval villages). Main places to visit: Perugia, Orvieto, Spoleto, Assisi, Todi, Gubbio but there are also many charming little towns and villages.

The climate in Tuscany is very mild. The most beautiful season is May, September and October. So the main season to travel in Tuscany is spring, summer and autumn, especially because the landscape at that time of the year is very beautiful. Usually the summers in Tuscany are warm and without rain.

Lucignano

The southern part of Tuscany is much less well known than the northern reaches of the region. Between Chianti and the hills of Umbria are truly enchanting towns, the historic vineyards of Montalcino and Montepulciano and at least two of the most delightful inn/restaurants we've ever found. The most historic of the hill towns are Siena, Arezzo, Montepulciano and Pienza. Siena, built on three hills and surrounded by well preserved walls, is filled with fine examples of Gothic architecture and has one of the world's most unique piazzas - il Campo - (shaped like a shell with scalloped edges). Of course, the world-famous Palio is an important part of Sienese identity, history and culture. With less than 100,000 people, Arezzo is the largest town in the area. The town changed hands many times in Medieval and Renaissance days, but managed to keep its focus; still today it remains a prosperous centre of the jewellery business. In addition to the monthly market, Arezzo has a large number of antique stores and, of course, jewellery stores. Montepulciano sits on a long, narrow hill. The town, which today has 15,000 inhabitants, was a centre of artistic life in the Renaissance. The surrounding vineyards are the source of Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, a dark red wine whose name is the subject of many legends. If Montepulciano is a textbook of Renaissance architecture, Pienza is a textbook, or maybe a living experiment, in Renaissance urban planning. In addition to wonderful churches, public buildings and private residences of all sizes, the town has a large number of antique and home decoration stores that are among the best in Italy.
