The ground level has a large kitchen and splendid living space with a brick log fireplace.

Staying here at the Borgo (hamlet) of Castelrotto, which means the broken castle, will make you fall in love with the rolling hills of Tuscany and the medieval hilltop towns, the festivals and cultural highlights that this marvelous and yet undiscovered region, known as the Orcia Valley has to offer. Access to the house is along a gravel country road that winds through the vineyards that lead you to the Hamlet. You willl be enchanted by the light in this particular area ; in fact a world renowned American photographer published a book on the special light in this part of Tuscany using the photographs that were taken during one of his many visits here at the property. This unique antique Hamlet of Castelrotto has a large shared in ground swimming pool that measures 6 m. x 4 m. that is immersed in the olive trees on a slope that faces the valley of the Ombrone river. It is composed of 3 separate and independent accommodations, one of which is the Fienile cottage which in the past was a hayloft. All of our farmhouses are decorated in a contemporary and comfortable style using original antiques that belong to the family. We are only a short drive away from Montalcino, a wine lovers dream, in fact you can see it perched on the neighbouring hilltop, and Siena and Pienza are just a little over a 30 minute drive away. There are numerous other historical towns to visit in the area.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Presently known as an important agricultural centre on the gentler side of the Sienese Clay Hills. Buonconvento already flourished in ancient times thanks to its particular geographical situation; at the confluence of the Arbia and Ombrone rivers on one hand, and along the route of the all-important medieval Via Francigena on the other. Amongst the numerous sights worth seeing are an uncommon number of fine Liberty-style noble farm-houses. that are scattered amongst the hilltops and valleys all around the area. There are many "castles" as well that one encounters enroute while driving around the countryside, such as the fortress of Bibbiano Guiglieschi, over a thousand years old, the Tower of Bibbiano and the great architectural complex of Castelnuovo Tancredi (which is our home and probably one of the most photographed castles in all of Italy Some nearby towns are : Montalcino, San Quirico Orcia, Vescovado di Murlo, Murlo with its archaelogical excavations , Pienza, and Siena.

Buonconvento

Just a short drive to any hilltop town in the area, you can use our location as your home base. Buonconvento has some great restaurants and is only 4 km away from the farmhouse. Great area for horseback riding, bicycling around the hills, or long walks. Siena is only 30 minutes away by car and is the star of medieval architecture and comes to life in July and August for the historical Palio horse race.

“Great place for family and friends”

Reviewed 2 Sep 2012

We rented all three cottages for a group of 17 including small children and adults. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. The area is beautiful, serene and relaxing. Having the pool there took the pressure off having to "do something" everyday and kept the kids entertained. Buonconvento is a great little town, that has everything you will need. The owners and their staff couldn't have been more accomodating and helpful in making our stay a success. Easily accessible to Siena and Florence by train or car. I highly recommend this property; particulalry for large groups.
