Podere Montepulciano sits on a hill just ten minutes drive away from captivating Renaissance town Pienza. The villa overlooks the striking scenery of the Orcia Valley, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. The valley is above all renowned for its wine, the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, and the succulent T-bone steaks from the wide-horned white Chianina cattle.

Carefully restored to respect the charming original architecture, this beautiful farmhouse has been updated with modern comforts. The beauty of the superb panorama, which includes an incredible view of Montupluciano, can be enjoyed from three different terraces. There is also a lovely pool and pool house. The entire property of 6 acres is fenced and the garden surrounding the villa has a computerized irrigation system from two artesian wells, maintaining olive trees, cypresses, maritime pines, fruit trees and many flowers. Parking is within the security gate.

Montepulciano is only 8 km distant. There you will find a good selection shops and restaurants. Florence and Siena are within easy reach (approx. 1 or 1.5 hours drive), Città della Pieve is 55 km, Arezzo with its famous cycle of frescoes by Piero della Francesca and its antique market is 50 km distant. The Orcia Valley has other treasures such as Monticchiello, Montalcino, Sant'Anna in Camprena (which served as location for the film The English Patient) and Bagno Vigoni with its luxurious spa. Fashion addicts can splurge out at the famous Prada factory outlet, which lies on to road to Florence.

The property's location makes excursions to Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Arezzo and Florence an easy day trip. But the area below Siena, stretching from the monastery of Monte Oliveto to Montalcino and Montepulciano offers some rewarding sites that are well worth a visit.

In San Quirico d'Orcia make sure you see the Horti Leonini, an early Renaissance garden, as well as the western door in the city wall and the Collegiata (main church).

Montalcino is beautifully situated on a hill inhabited since Etruscan times, swathed in vineyards and olive groves. It is a quiet, affluent, attractive town with pretty buildings and flower-filled squares, and many shops selling the Brunello di Montalcino.

Montepulcino is a graceful Tuscan hill town, best known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which was being praised by connoisseurs over 200 years ago and can certainly contend with Italy's best today.

Pienza, the unfinished 'utopian' city, was commissioned by Pope Pius II in 1459.

Chiusi is one of our favourites because of its unpretentious liveliness. Compared to Montepulciano it is uncontaminated by tourism. Chiusi has a railway station - from here it is a quick ride to the city center of Rome.

Monticchiello is a pleasant walled village, whose crooked watch-tower is visible from afar. Next to the church is a small shop which sells local linens (towels, bedspreads) and materials in pure linen. They use traditional methods and patterns and the results are extremely attractive.

Visit the abbey of Monte Oliveto Maggiore and the semi-derelict monastery of Sant'Anna in Camprena - a very romantic setting which served as location for the film The English Patient.

Sant'Antimo is surely one of the loveliest Romanesque buildings in all of Italy. It is hard to imagine a more sympathetic combination of architectural grace and natural setting.

Sarteano fits our picture of an unspoilt Italian village. The main square has a nice bar where you can sit outside. On the square below, in the afternoon a different bar serves excellent take away pizza.

And last but not least the landscape in this region of Tuscany is spectacular: The Crete Senesi are the eroded clay hills in the Orcia valley. These strange, pale, barren looking slopes, with their bare cliffs, broken gullies and white Jurassic limestone, look altogehter more lunar than terrestial.
