Description from owner

Description

Il Noce is a very comfortable recently renovated apartment and is ideal for a quiet or active holiday in the idyllic countryside with splendid views and inviting walks. This attractive self contained apartment adjoins the main farmhouse where the owners live and has two double bedrooms and two bathrooms (one en suite). Apart from the living room, it is possible to enjoy time in the kitchen-dining room as there is a wood burning fire place which is always a centre of attraction particularly if you choose to visit in the colder months. The apartment also has the benefit of central heating, one more reason not to rule out a stay in the autumn or winter when perhaps you can witness or take part in the wine and olive harvests. But if you prefer the warm months, then you will enjoy the respite of cool air offered by the 500 metres high hills and plenty of opportunity to have al fresco eating on either of the two patios reserved for your own use. Meals can be supplied by arrangement (see other

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Tuscany is famous all over the world for its extraordinary combination of natural beauty and a vast cultural heritage consisting of an incredible number of art works, ranging from Etruscan times through to the Renaissance and Baroqueperiods and then to the 20th century. It is the marvellous discovery of these works in their natural setting and amid its people, that the entire world admires. But Tuscany has many landscapes, many itineraries that are often unknown to the general public outside the classical tourist circuit. It is a land of mountains, hills and woods, but it also has the sea, islands, parks, protected areas, wine cellars and oil presses as well as castles, churches, history, traditions and many other things that those who come to visit us should see and experience. Road sign, an information point, a tasting center, an exhibition: these are what tells you that you are in the heart of one of the many territories of quality production in Tuscany. These are Tuscany's wine trails:  itineraries for the enjoyment of wine, olive oil and the flavours of Tuscany.  

Radicondoli

Radicondoli on: http://vimeo.com/25513170RadicondoliThe council of Radicondoli rises on the metalliferous hills that overshadow the Val di CecinaThe territory of Radicondoli is divided into numerous villages and its economy is based on the hot springs and a large number of agritourisms. In this council you can admire the Elci castle, the convent of St. Francis and the parish of St. Simon. The castle of Radicondoli, along with that of Belforte, has been here since the beginning of the 13th century but its parish seems to date back to the 10th century, so it is very probable that an inhabited settlement around today's capital town may have been established even before the year 1000AD. There was human presence here even in the Etruscan-Roman times, but the subsequent medieval installation completely deleted it. We can only hypothesise that, being annexed to Volterra during the Roman era, the territory of Radicondoli was first at the centre of Scipione's politics, who used that area as a Naval reference point, and then involved in the struggles between the Romans and Etruscan aristocracy from the 1st century BC.The community of Radicondoli seems to have been one of the first to give itself a real autonomous, civic organisation, through which it stipulated pacts and conventions with Siena and the Aldobrandeschi counts. It was these who, in 1216, incorporated it as a fief into their properties. Five years later the castles of Radicondoli and Belforte were offered as a guarantee to Siena, as a mortgage on the pact of loyalty that the counts had sworn to the city. Far from having reached an agreement in this way, the council and the feudatories disputed the territory that was occupied by the Siennese in 1230 and then taken back by the Aldobrandeschi seven years later, renewing the oath of loyalty that had previously been broken. In the second half of the XIII century the Siennese mortgage on the two castles was eliminated. For a brief time, between 1260 and 1269 they were occupied by the Guelphs who forced Siena to buy them back. Subsequently, with the Aldobrandeschi ramifications, the two fortresses finished at the centre of a conflict for possession between the two new families. In 1541 the council became part of the Grand Duchy of Tuscany under Cosimo I de' Medici.(Fonte: Province of Siena)
