Casa Salice is an apartment of 70 square meters (approximately 750 square

feet) which sleeps four persons. It has a splendid view of the Tuscan hills.

Guests of the apartment can use a shared garden and a shared swimming pool.

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

reserved outdoor area 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 Salice is built on two levels. The living room of Casa Salice is on the

ground floor, and you will be able to enter it through a glass door in the yard,

which is paved with stones and terracotta tiles. In the living room you will

find a sofa, a dining table and a kitchenette equipped with a four-burner cooker

and a refrigerator.

From the living room you will be able to reach the bedrooms by means of an

internal stairway. One of the two bedrooms has a double bed, and the other one

has two single beds. You will be able to access the only bathroom from the room

with two single beds. The bathroom has a shower.

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.

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.

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.

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.
