Description from owner

It is the most photographed house in the area, a symbol of the Tuscany countryside, featured on many postcards and calendars simply because it has maintained the charm of the old farmhouse and the surrounding fields, without any new buildings as far as the eye can see.

Villa Andrea is located only 500 mt from Pienza, in the open Tuscan countryside. You don't find artificial lawns here or ornamental trees, but just naturally shaded areas and well kept country fields. Rooms have been renovated respecting the original layout of the villa and also maintain the original old cotto floor.

Accommodation: The property is centrally heated throughout and its ground floor, once used to accommodate the farm animals, now houses only the laundry room and the cellars. As in the past centuries, the accommodation is located solely on the upper floor, accessed by an external flight of stone stairs with a porch at the top.

From here, you enter directly the living room with an open fireplace and a sofa to

Garden and Swimming pool: the villa is surrounded by fields and a large farmyard where children can play undisturbed and safely. The pool is above ground (4 x 8 meters and 1.20 meters deep) but delightful none the less and big enough to cool off in.

A natural shaded area equipped to eat outside, offers an impressive setting for al fresco dinners, or simply to relax in front of the breathtaking landscape views over the countryside surrounding pointed with hilltop villages.

The villa is also equipped with wood burning oven and BBQ.

The villa is approached from Pienza, 500 metres away on an private road, about 10 minutes’ walk away. Pienza offers all the amenities included restaurants, bars, wine bars, supermarket and all kind of shops. Not to mention the Valdichiana outlet village where more 100 shops of the main modern brands welcome you just 25 minutes from the property.

Just for its location it is an ideal starting point for day trips to important art cities like Siena, Florence, Assisi, Perugia, Roma, Monticchiello or Montalcino, homeland of the famous 'Brunello' wine. Just 9 Km away you can find the old SPA Baths of Bagno Vignoni, and 25 km Valdichiana Golf Club. It is therefore the ideal location for people who loves relaxation, peace and gastronomy.

In the vicinity are a number of excellent hiking paths, as this is ideal walking country, set within a nature reserve, whose wildlife is protected. This area of the Val D’Orcia (Orcia Valley),including Pienza itself and Mount Amiata, an extinct volcano and now a very popular winter ski area, is renowned for its outstanding natural beauty and, as a result, has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
