The house has been very carefully decorated by the owner, Ilaria Miani a furniture designer and producer renowned for her trendy shop in Rome.

The open landscape of the Val d'Orcia makes for exceptional panoramas. The long narrow heated pool (20 x 4 meters) with its jet stream and vanishing edge, seems almost to be pouring itself onto the fields and farms below. A lower terrace along the west edge of the house protects the well-organized and well-kept vegetable garden from the ceaseless breeze, and provides an alternate view for those enjoying the hot tub (with jets). A circular drive and gated entrance from the east facilitates the moving of luggage and groceries, with a walled and shaded car-park below so the views from all sides of the house are unblemished. The list of visible landmarks reads much like a Tuscan itinerary; Monte Amiata, Monte Cetona, Radicofani, Pienza, Montalcino, Rocca d'Orcia, Contignano and Chiarentana.

Tucked into the thick spine of the L-shaped house is the outdoor living. Two broad terraces paved with old stones reclaimed from Arezzo's piazza in Arezzo are bisected by a wide, uncovered staircase to the first floor. One forms an outdoor living room with casual seating under umbrellas. The second is the outdoor dining room, also under umbrellas. A narrow raised bed is planted for color and fragrance. Close by is the outdoor fireplace for grilling in the ancient Tuscan tradition and fashioned from thick slabs of pietra serena. The sink is wide and shallow and ancient. A series of iron framed double doors leads to the gathering rooms of the ground floor.

The Tuscany region

Italy is a wonderful country that combines stunningly landscape with unique culture. From it's modern cities to its classic

countryside there is such a variety of wondrous things to see and do. Italy's unique culture stems from its history of being many individual states/provinces.

The countries shape means that the coast is easily accessible from practically anywhere in the country.


There are many fantastic things to do in the

local area. As well as all the normal tourist activities available there is a plethora of historical churches/monasteries that are well worth a visit. A trip here

would not be complete without sampling some of the delicious local food and, of course, the wine.
