Farmhouse | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
Filippo, is a delicious apartment and it is part of a farmhouse divided in 3 units located close to Montalcino. This apartment can accommodate 6 persons in 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms.
These comfortably and stylishly furnished apartments are located in fully renovated Tuscan farm buildings, which are part of a working wine-producing estate. The grounds are set among gently rolling hills and extensive vineyards.
Two of these apartments are housed back-to-back under the same roof, whereas Filippo apartment, is situated in a separate building just across the courtyard. The restoration work on these houses, built in traditional light Tuscan stone, has carefully preserved many of their original architectural elements, such as the external staircases; terracotta-tiled floors; tiled/beamed ceilings; white-washed walls; and large, wood-burning fireplaces. These features have been harmoniously blended with more modern, striking colour-schemes, furnishings and fittings, as well as with every labour-saving comfort required.
Encircled by lawns and screened by high evergreen hedges, the delightful pool terrace makes an ideal retreat, when you want to get away from it all, undisturbed!
ACCOMMODATION: Filippo (sleeps 6): a small external flight of terracotta-tiled stairs to the upper-floor level brings you directly into a spacious, L-shaped dayroom, comprising integrated sitting-room, dining area and kitchen. On one side wall, next to the long dining table, is a large fireplace and at the far end is the open-plan, fully equipped, fitted kitchen, with distinctive, ultra-modern, stainless-steel units. Round another corner is the sitting area, with sofa, armchairs and bookshelves. A separate TV rooms with large sofas offers a brand new technological TV 50 inches.
The apartment has 3 double bedrooms with fitted wardrobes and two bathrooms with showers.
GARDEN & SWIMMING POOL: From the main country road, a hilly, winding, rough gravel track passes through woodland, olive groves and vineyards, up to the entrance gates to the estate. Tall conifers shade the informal parking area at the rear. The little cluster of buildings is surrounded by a gravel courtyard, with a central olive tree and pines around the borders. A small stone outbuilding, adorned by a rambling rose, houses the BBQ and pizza-oven, where guests can self-cater, all wood provided.
Perfumed lavender bushes and hydrangeas in big terracotta pots brighten the grounds and high evergreen hedges enclose the raised pool terrace, set discreetly to one side. This looks out over the peaceful backdrop of wooded hills, which can be enjoyed from the manicured lawns that extend poolside, dotted with shady olive trees. Loungers and sunshades invite you to relax and unwind here, while a canopied gazebo on the paved pool-surround makes the ideal venue for al fresco dining.

The Tuscany region
It is an excellent starting-point for exciting trips and itineraries to visit the most important sites of Tuscany. The return to the serene peace of the Resort afterwards will be even more enticing.
Within a just slightly wider radius, guests can also easily reach the most important cities of Tuscany – Siena, Florence and Arezzo – as well as places of major tourist appeal such as San Gimignano and Chianti. And if this is not enough, just a little further southwards lies the beautiful and wild coastal region of the Maremma.
OTHER FACILITIES AVAILABLE NEAR BY: The delightful natural landscape of the Val d'Orcia is particularly suitable for walking, trekking and excursions by mountain bike. The nearby spa of Bagno Vignoni offers a variety of health and body care treatments.
In the vicinity there are numerous attractive towns that are well worth a visit, including Montalcino, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Pienza. Particularly in summer, but also in other periods, there is a wide range of cultural events such as theatre festivals and music festivals of international standing.
Montalcino was made famous by Brunello, one of the world's best red wines. But Montalcino is also a magnificent Italian city of art which, from its hill, dominates the 3000 hectares of vineyards (1500 for Brunello) that have given it fame and wealth.
Straddled between the basins of the Ombrone and the Orcia, the centre is overlooked by the Fortress built in 1361 to consolidate the fact that Montalcino had become a possession of Siena. A second symbol of Montalcino is the slim tower of the Town Hallbuilt between the 13th and 14th centuries. At the foot of the tower Piazza del Popolo and the Gothic Loggia.
In the historic centre of Montalcino the churches of Sant'Agostino and Sant'Egidio (14th century) are worth a visit, as is the Civic and Diocese Museum which houses Della Robbia terracotta works and paintings and sculptures from the 14th to the 20th century.
Roads winding among vineyards lead to Torrenieri, Sant'Angelo in Colle e Poggio alle Mura.
From Castelnuovo dell'Abate you reach the abbey of Sant'Antimo, one of Italy's Romanesque masterpieces.
