Description from owner

Description

Luca’s House is in Pescina of Seggiano, on Monte Amiata , in Podere Barbaglia, an old country small-holding dating back to the 19th century. Built entirely in stone it has been renovated respecting the typical architectural characteristics of the area blended with touches of artistic masonry. The result is a small ‘village’ whose rustic hospitality has grown over the years so that an ‘agriturismo’ or farmhouse accommodation , has been created. Two apartments are also available for long or short stays for a total of 14-16 people, with a sauna and Jacuzzi.

Petra is the main apartment connectable with Fonte (so the name Fontepietra) .WiFi connection is avaible inside the house and in the garden. Well accept pets. We are close to termal places as: S. Filippo, Bagni Vignone, Petriolo, and also to winter ski slopes.

The small-holding is in the midst of the countryside, surrounded by the biologically cultivated fields of the farm and by pine

The small-holding is in the midst of the countryside, surrounded by the biologically cultivated fields of the farm and by pine and chestnut woods that are typical of the area. It ‘s not unusual to see roe deer crossing the fields at sunset or the more timid porcupines or badgers or wild boar or even a furtive fox. The area it is completely uncontaminated and visitors can see all types of birds in the trees as well as falcons and buzzards circling up in the sky, watch the fireflies in summer and little clouds of butterflies in spring. The place is ideal for bird-watching enthusiasts, trekkers, mountain bikers and not far practicing paragliding. Ideal to stage Photo Tour, or to get your artistic shots.

Location description from owner

The Tuscany region

Seggiano

Located in the cross area where Maremma and Val D’Orcia Nature Park meet, Mount Amiata is an ancient volcano (1774 m.) with an abundance of underground and springs thermal waters. . The closest thermal bath (20 minutes by car) is at San Filippo; in the area there are thermal baths at Bagni Vignone or San Casciano up to those at Petriolo and Saturnia.

Not distant the sea side Argento coast(one hour by car) .

The ski slopes are about 10 minutes by car from the farm: in winter there are several kilometers of slopes equipped with two chair lifts and ski lifts.

Mount Amiata has always been a crossroads of intense spiritual activity thanks to its churches and to the Via Francigena(from VIII century pilgrim itinerary coming from north europe) which flanks it in the north. At the beginning of the 19th century it witnessed the rise of David Lazzaretti’s social-Christian community on Mount Labro. At the moment it is home to Merigar, the seat of the Dzogchen Community,one of the biggest Tibetan Buddhist centres in Italy.

In the area of Seggiano and Pescina you can visit the Spoerri Garden, an international contemporary art museum by Daniel ,a museum of contemporary art created by Daniel Spoerri which attracts an international audience.

From Santa Fiora and Arcidosso to Pienza and Montepulciano there is a succession of medieval villages and Renaissance towns to visit and numerous local activities in any season.
