From the owner

House of Leo 'The Orchard' is a romantic and beautiful house, located in Belforte, a small and quiet medieval village in the province of Siena.

Thanks to its strategic position on top of a hill, Belforte was conceived as a military fortress in Roman times. All the walls that surround the village and the house are under the superintendence of the artistic and architectural heritage.

Leo's house is the ideal place to spend your holidays, with your family, friends, or simply for those who want to spend a relaxing holiday, immersed in nature and tourist sites, surrounded by Tuscan hills still intact.

The house is very large (200 square meters) and was renovated in 2012. All the materials were chosen following a philosophy of attention to quality 'and provenance. The ceramics in the bathrooms are made and decorated by hand, while the Parquet that ricompre the entire surface is distributed by a company of Trentino and is produced in a natural way, without the use of protecting substances or chemical compounds.

Leo's house is organized on three levels, so as to guarantee all guests private space and quiet.

On the ground floor there is a large room fully furnished with living room, a big fireplace, library, TV, sink and table games, there is also a piano, so that musicians can find a good mate of holidays.

The first floor is the largest of the house and overlooks the garden, and here we can find a large and bright living area with dining table for 4/8 people and a living room wicker. In the next room is the kitchen, new and modern, equipped with oven, fridge and dishwasher on the first floor are also 3 bedrooms (2 with double bed and one with twin beds, perfect for a couple), two bathrooms: one with separate shower / tub, the second smallest with shower.

Coming out of the living area, there is a first garden with pergolas and barbecue where you can go down to the oldest part of the garden with swimming pool (outdoor) out of respect for the Superintendency of Architectural and Cultural for the medieval walls that surround the entire property '. The pool is surrounded by fruit trees (cherries, apricots, apples, plums, grapes, plums) and another pergola.

Returning to the first part of the garden, we have a wonderful and comfortable spiral staircase that leads to a terrace-solarium. This terrace (with its panoramic view) introduces a large, bright loft with 1 double bed (with possibility 'of adding a single bed) with private bathroom with shower.

The owners and operators of this holiday home are Alessandra and Leo, a young couple efficient and dynamic, which will be glad to inform you and direct you to places of interest, as well as to make your stay as pleasant and relaxing as possible.

Owner's reply:
Debra, I thank you and thank you for being our guests, I thank you for the most beautiful review ever, and especially for being one of the few people who has grasped the essence of our work spirit and what we want to give to our guests. Reading your review I was moved because despite everything is a demanding job and it is not always understood in its entirety, but you have really overcome all our guests. Our knowledge has laid the foundations to be able to meet again here or here or at home and I really hope this can happen. Thanks thanks thanks!! Really!! I wish you all the best you can and that you can still have many travels and beautiful things. You deserve it. A big kiss from me by Alessandra and Nina. Leo
