Room with terrace and garden in beautiful Tuscany
Guest house | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Situated on top of a hill, only 20 min by car outside the charming city of Siena, the house is emerging in a beautiful forest perfect for biking and hiking. A picturesque mosaic of fields and wineyards are breath-taking panoramas. Antique churches, castles, mansions and wineries are all typical sceneries. Originally I'm Norwegian, but I've been based in Italy for the last twenty years. My home is an authentic Tuscan 'cottage' being part of other rural houses in a classical old Tuscan hamlet. If you are in search of quiet and peace this house will definitely satisfy you !
Both rooms have access to a lovely terrace and garden, and use of the kitchen is possible. The bathroom is shared with the owner. As the closest grocery shop is in Sovicille (9km) bring some of your own food !
In the matter of smoking allowed this is referred to the terrace and garden !
GPS is recommended to get here !

The Tuscany region
A car is required as the area where my house is situated do not have public transport-connections.
That is of course why the area is so quiet and peaceful ! Once you're here you don't want to hassle to go anywhere else as you have the surrounding forest to explore with antique castles and churches.
The peace and quiet are for sure the characteristics of this place. If you love the nature you will definitely love my home. The area is perfect for biking and hiking, or just have a nice walk in the forest exploring the beautiful surroundings.
The autumn is here and the days are getting shorter, but still the autumn in Tuscany may surprise you with mild and sunny weather all through October. And the high season of 'vendemmia' (grape harvest) is the big activity of this region in this period. Get a closer look at the harvest going for a visit to one of the many wineries, be a part of this evocating tradition. I will help you arrange, just ask in advance ! Or what about wine tasting at the eminent castle of Brolio in Chianti.
Be a part of the olive-harvest, but that is during the more rigid month of November.
Many beautiful places are worth a visit in this area all year through, Siena (20km), San Gimignano (30km), Volterra (45km), Montepulciano (80km) and Montalcino (60km) or even less known places but as beautiful Monteriggioni (20km), Radicondoli (23km), Casole d'Elsa (20km) and Pienza (72km).
Other visits of interest are the local ecological markets like the 'Mercatale'. Every third Saturday of the month you find it in Stigliano (16km), a small enchanting village of this area. Cheese and other products from ecological local farms.
If you are looking for total relaxation at a spa with thermal springs to escape your stress and enjoy nature, only 35 km from Siena you find San Giovanni Terme in Rapolano.
