Casa Salvia is an apartment of 100 square meters (approximately 1075 square

feet) which sleeps six persons. It has a loggia and a splendid view of the

Tuscan hills. Guests of the apartment can use a shared garden and a shared

swimming pool.

It has three bedrooms, a large living room with cooking area, two bathrooms, and

you will enter it from a loggia equipped with table and chairs.

The apartment is part of an ancient farmhouse, which is located on the slope of

a gentle hill, in an area of the Tuscan countryside which remains untouched and

partly wild.

You will be far away from busy roads, and you will find that the air is clear

and perfumed, and will be able to enjoy a peaceful stay. You will be able to

look around in any direction, and your sight will span over a wide horizon of

hills, which intersect like the waves of a green sea, with plots which are

brighter where the land has been sowed and planted with vineyards, and darker

where there are small oak woods.

On a nearby hill you will be able to spot the profile of the medieval burg of

Montalcino. Montalcino is the village that lends its name to one of the most

famous wines of Tuscany and Italy: the “Brunello di Montalcino”. The village is

known for its excellent wine makers and the splendid wine cellars open to

visitors.

You will be halfway between Montalcino and San Quirico D'Orcia, just a few

kilometers south of Siena, in an area which is not crowded by tourists, yet in

an good position to visit Siena and the main art cities of Tuscany with short

trips.

The farmhouse is surrounded by 2 hectares (5 acres) of land, partly garden and

partly vineyard. It is made up of three ancient buildings, made of bricks and

stones. The buildings have been built around a nice yard paved with stones.

In the farmhouse there are six apartments of different sizes. The owners reside

on the premises, in a building close by, and will be kindly and discreetly

available for any request or information.

The three buildings on the farmhouse have been restored with loving care, and

the characteristics and the charm of once-upon-a-time country houses have been

kept untouched both in the outdoor looks and in the indoor decorations. Doors

and windows are made of wood, the floors are tiled with terracotta tiles, and

the ceilings are made with long wood beams and terracotta bricks. The decoration

is rich in items of local handicrafts.

The swimming pool is located in the middle of a large lawn, which is decorated

with bushes and flower pots, and it has a 360-degree view of the surrounding

hills. It is equipped with deck chairs and beach umbrellas, which are available

for all the guests of the farmhouse. The size of the swimming pools is 14 x 7

meters (46 x 23 feet), and it is 1.2 to 2.40 meters deep (3.9 to 7.8 feet deep).

As a guest of the farmhouse you will also have available a large and comfortable

shared TV lounge, equipped with satellite television, a table tennis table, a

bowls lane, a barbecue and a shared laundry room.

During the summer time an old railway section is reactivated for tourists. The

line goes from Siena to Grosseto, and crosses the Montalcino area, making it

possible to visit the area where the Brunello wine is made on board of an old

steam train.

The farmhouse is 8 km (5 miles) from the closest village, which is San Quirico

D'Orcia, where you will find shops and restaurant. You will only be able to

reach the village by car. On the premises there is a large parking lot.

Casa Salvia is located on the first floor, and you will reach it from the garden

along an external stairway that will take you to a roomy covered loggia. From

the loggia you will enter the living room.

An imposing fireplace takes up almost half of the room: it is an original

ancient fireplace, with its large hood supported by wood beams, under which you

will find two wide brickwork benches, so that you will be able to sit inside the

fireplace itself.

Looking at it, you can't avoid thinking of how many families of peasants must

have gathered in the past around it, maybe waiting for the soup cooking in the

big copper pot to be ready. This big pot is now next to the fireplace, and is

just an ornament. And to make these thoughts stronger, orderly placed on the

hood there is a line of small ancient rural tools made of iron.

In the living room you will also find two comfortable sofas, a table with chairs

and a brickwork kitchenette.

The kitchen is equipped with four-burner cooker, oven, refrigerator with

freezer.

From the living room you will be able to reach the bedrooms. Two of the bedrooms

have a double bed, and one has two single beds. One of the bedrooms with a

double bed has an en-suite bathroom with bath tub. The second bathroom, which

has a shower, can be entered from an access area next to the living room. The

rooms have windows with a view of the vegetation.

The loggia is equipped with table and chairs, and it is shared with the guests

of another nearby small apartment.

The house is equipped with central heating.

The house is 9 km (5.5 miles) from Bagno Vignoni, 18 km (11 miles) from Pienza,

32 km (20 miles) from Montepulciano, 21 km (13 miles) from Montalcino and 22 km

(13.5 miles) from Mount Amiata. Siena is 51 km (31 miles), Chianciano, with its

famous spas, is 33 km (20 miles), and Florence is 140 km (87 miles).

The Tuscany region

Located in the heart of Italy, Tuscany is surely one of the most famous Italian landscapes. The essence of this beautiful region are its natural, artistic, and cultural heritage.

Bounded by the Ligurian and the Tyrrhenian Sea (two arms of Mediterranean), this region is divided into ten provinces, whose capitals are Arezzo, Florence, Grosseto, Livorno, Lucca, Massa-Carrara, Pisa, Pistoia, Prato and Siena. Florence is the capital city of the region itself.

The region was populated first by the Etruscans on the 7th century BC, and about 500 years later by the Romans.

The words Humanism and Renaissance evoke Tuscany, as immediately as Pope evokes Rome: just think that between the fourteenth and the sixteenth century, both these ages were born here. The entire region attained a very important artistic role.

If you are keen on art and nature… well you’re definitely in the right place! ;-)

Indeed the fathers of Italian painting, architecture and sculpture lived in this beautiful towns: such as Cimabue, Giotto, Brunelleschi, Donatello, Botticelli, Leonardo Da Vinci and Michelangelo. This is the reason why the entire region is rich in museums where thousands of amazing works are kept. You’ll be impressed by the majesty of the many ancient palaces (for examples “Palazzo Vecchio”, “Palazzo Pitti”, “Palazzo Medici”), monasteries and villas that are springing up all over the Tuscany.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Tuscany, because the climate is mild. Bus-lines and trains connect the larger towns, but having a car would be a great advantage, and you would be easily able to enjoy the small towns and vineyards, which represent some of Tuscany’s strong points.

The “Chiantigiana road” is a must to see: it produces some of Italy’s finest wines. This is the colourful and legendary road of the “Chianti" region. The grape cultivation dates back to the Etruscan times. One of the biggest pleasures will be sipping different wines, at the wineries or at the wine bars scattered in the towns.

What about a drop in on “Mugello”? It is a countryside surrounded by oaks, chestnut trees and by the Apennines, This land of artists and painters have been source of inspiration in its farmhouses and colours. with kind people, authentic cooking, good wine, plus a great tradition in handicrafts.

The Apuan Alps are a monumental work of the nature. They consist in some of the highest peaks in the region: This regional park sets up the chance for those who want to practice trekking, cycling, horse riding or simply walking to enjoy this beautiful landscape.

Versilia is an area of 20 km sandy beaches located in the north of the region. The seaside with the colourful bathing areas is rich in bars and meeting places. Camaiore, Forte dei Marmi, Massarosa, Pietrasanta, Seravezza, Stazzema and Viareggio are the towns of this beautiful coast.

Another great attraction of this region is the archipelago. The largest island is Elba: more than one hundred kilometers of coast.

Curiously enough, since the Etruscans introduced the use of fresh herbs, the Tuscan cooking is still based on vegetable dishes, bread-based soups, meats perfumed with sage, rosemary, and thyme. Moreover the secret of its success is the good care and the devotion to guarantee the quality of the products of the land... crostini of chicken liver, soups, tortelli with Bolognese sauce, “pappardelle” with hare sauce or with boar sauce, boar hunter style, fillet of beef, salted cod with tomato sauce, ricciarelli, cantucci, Tuscan salt-less bread… We’re sure your mouth is already watering!

San Quirico D'Orcia

Montalcino lies in the heart of Southern Tuscany, located at about 70 miles southwest of Florence in the famous wine region.

Back in the Middle Age, this area used to be divided into four ecclesiastic districts: Arezzo, Chiusi, Grosseto and Siena. This division reflected the ancient Etruscan lucumons of Arezzo, Chiusi, Roselle and Volterra. Many remains of that age have been preserved in the local Archaeological museum of Montalcino.

The local history is famous for a number of mysterious stories and tales that throughout the decades have been handed down from father to son. The main reason for all this mysterious origin of the village is due to the destruction of the Abbazia of St Antimo, where the ancient archives was retained.

The most recent and relevant information about Montalcino date back at the XII century, when the town was contended between Siena and Florence. Very soon Montalcino had to preserve its freedom from the threat of Siena, when the dark menace of a war was surrounding Tuscany. The ancient castle was firstly conquered and destroyed by Siena, but later on it was reoccupied by the local noble families, thanks to the help of Florence, which was the main Siena’s enemy, contending wealth and opulence of the area. Throughout the further ages, the town has always been disputed and a classic Tuscany power struggle.

Once Montalcino got back to Siena in 1269, in order to avoid other defeats and to ensure a peaceful era, it was built a new castle: the so-called “Rocca”, with the aim to control the centre of the town. The castle is still intact and still represent the best symbol of Montalcino and its people: a classic example of Medieval Italian castle. It was built following the ancient town walls, reporting a pentagonal plan with towers in each of the five corners. Beside the South-Eastern towers, you will find the donjon while inside you can admire the abbey. Going down to the centre, you will certainly notice on the right the Monastery of St Agostino and a lovely church dated back to the XIV century, followed by Palazzo Vescovile.

This is a magnificent evidence of history and culture that provides to all visitors an unique experience to live and remember forever: once you start discovering the old town centre with all its narrow and lovely streets, you can’t stop from falling in love with all the magic atmosphere of Tuscany, something that you will bring home and make feel yourself richer.

Strongly linked with the local culture and history, we can’t miss to mention and give a personal tribute to the “local wine star”: the Brunello of Montalcino. This is a Must for anyone hanging around Tuscany and who is after the real unique experience of the most famous Italian lifestyle.

Brunello di Montalcino is a red Italian wine produced in the vineyards surrounding the town of Montalcino. Brunello, is the unofficial name of the clone of Sangiovese grown in the Montalcino region. The Brunello di Montalcino was awarded the first Denominazione di Origine Controllata e Garantita (DOCG) almost thirty years ago and that was just the beginning of an astonishing “career” for the local wine, that has become The Italian wine for all the wine connoisseur. It is indeed one of the Italy's best-known and most expensive wines ever, but It’s definitely worth it.

As every single village in Tuscany, Montalcino has plenty of delicious food and wine tours: you just need to choose one of it and you’ll be designated to live and taste and smell the reasons for which Tuscany has become home for hundreds of people looking for the perfect balance where to live and relax.

Tasting wine, having the best food ever, enjoying grappa at the end of the meal, walking around the hills and among the river, feeling the warm sun is what is just waiting for you to be lived. If you’re keen on these kind of experiences, go and pick the most suitable solution for you and your friends.
