Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

The region is located in the central, western part of the country, north of Rome and south of Genoa. It is bounded by the Apennine Mountains to the North and East, the Apuan Alps on the northwest and by the Tyrrhenian Sea on the West.

From the Etruscans to the Romans to the Renaissance, Tuscany is possibly the greatest repository of art in the world, from extraordinary paintings and sculpture to frescoes and architectural masterpieces.

Tuscany: a row of cypress trees breaking the blue sky on a rolling hilltop. Olive groves and grapevines marching tidily down the side of a slope. Little medieval hill towns gazing down upon a country that has been carefully cultivated.

The Chianti area, between Florence and Siena, is one of the most beautiful countrysides in Italy and a famous wine production area.

Florence is the capital of Tuscany. Other important cities are Siena, Pisa, Arezzo, Pistoia, Prato, Lucca, Livorno, Grosseto, Massa Carrara.

Siena is one of the most popular destinations for travellers to Tuscany. Siena is home to the famous horse race, the Palio, held in Siena's unusual central square.

Radicondoli

Belforte, a picturesque mediaeval village situated on an extremely panoramic hill at 550 m over the sea level, lies approx. 900 km away, is easy reachable on foot, and offers a grocery shop, a bar-restaurant and a post office.

The nearest village with more facilities, including a tennis court, is Radicondoli at approx. 5 km. Other distances: San Gimignano 40 km, Volterra 43 km, Siena 45 km, the beaches of Follonica 50 km, Florence 75 km, Pisa 110 km.

“Peace and tranquility”

Reviewed 15 Nov 2012

My wife and I stayed here in June 2012. On arrival we were stuned by how beautiful the house, the grounds and the surrounding valleys were. The gardens are well maintained as with the house. There are numerous sitting areas outside to enjoy the sun throughout the day. The peace and quiet will amaze you as you relax and enjoy the views from the pool. The pool is lovely and warm and very large. The only negative i can think of is on the seating in the living room. There is only one small sofa which can get uncomfortable in the evening. The owner and his wife are very pleasant and welcoming and are on hand for any queries. The bedrooms are a very good size with plenty of storage space. It is very private and secluded down a windy gravel road. You can walk to the small village ontop of the hill on the otherside of the facing valley. It has a small shop for groceries and a small cafe bar. It is an historic village so has plenty of character. You location is situated central to florence, siena and san giminiano along with other historic towns. You are usually 45minutes form any of these main locations. This is a holiday location for someone to relax and unwind as the drive in the evening can be tiring in the dark. We needed to unwind so this was perfect for our needs. I would definately stay again as the house is so beautiful.
