Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Maybe, the most famous region of Italy, Tuscany will make you fall in love with its rolling hills, its stunning landscapes, its medieval cities, its festivals and its cooking and wine.Villa San Donato is in Vallerano, a really small Tuscany village in the country of Murlo, only 17 kilometers south of Siena, on the border between the Val di Merse and the Val di Farma. Coming from either north or south take the SS223 Siena-Grosseto highway, exit at Fontazzi at the 51 kilometer mark, and continue for Casciano di Murlo. Once you arrive there, which is the closest town to the Villa (and where you should stock up on all your necessities), follow the indications for Vallerano or the Residenza d'Epoca (the sign with the characteristic yellow and black colors). After the small villages of Poggio Brucoli, Poggio Lodoli and Santo Stefano and just after the sign for Santo Stefano, do not enter in the village, but turn right onto the dirt road. Continue for approximately 2 kilometers and finally, on your left you will see Villa San Donato welcoming you.

Murlo

Villa San Donato is located in the open countryside and is just a few minutes from the the country village of Casciano, via a dirt road, through olive groves, vineyards and woods typical of the area.Despite being independent and free on all sides, the villa is not completely isolated because the closest houses (belonging to the tiny village of Vallerano) are within walking distance.This position allows you to have complete privacy in the home and in the pool, but without feeling too lonely!The Villa is located on a nature trail route that stretches for many miles and intersects with many others, so it is quite common to see people who go hiking, go mountain biking or horseback riding and enjoy all that nature can offer (I can arrange the latter two activities).At about 10km away from the Villa there is the natural and free hot springs of Petrolio Terme.The precious sulphureous waters form small natural pools on the banks of the river Farma.As you move away from the shore, the thermal water is mixed with that of the river and reaches ever lower temperatures.Everyone can then find its ideal temperature!Those who want something more than the "simple nature", can of course visit the SPA and enjoy massages and treatments.Just five kilometers from Casciano di Murlo (Siena), the nearest village, where you will find all your basic necessities, like a supermarket, pharmacy, post office and bank. Many interesting tourist sights like Siena, Montalcino, Pienza, the Abbey of Saint Galgano, even the mountain and the sea, and many others, can all be found within fifty kilometers maximum (about 35 miles), and less than an hour drive away.
