Torrita di Siena
Altitude: 380 Mt
This is a very quiet private residence with a swimming pool surrounded by beautiful cypress trees. It is perfect for those who seek a relaxing holiday in harmony with nature. The structure of the 18th century farm in the center of this property is typical of the Val d’Orcia. Through the centuries, it has been a convent and also a farm owned by known bankers in Siena, the noble Chigi family. You can still see the Chigi family coat of arms on the ground floor in the area that was once horse stables.
For those who love the true Tuscan countryside: peace, silence, cypresses and green meadows, the farmhouse is situated on top of a hill and the view is beautiful: the town of Montepulciano on the left and the medieval village of Montefollonico on the right. In the middle, “perfect” countryside, which has been intact for centuries. On the horizon, you can see the bell tower of the cathedral of Pienza.
Over 20 years ago, an architect created 5 apartments in this farmhouse with unique features and wonderful views. He took special care to keep the original structure intact. My home is on the first floor.
- A loggia equipped with chairs and table for outdoor dining with a gorgeous view of the countryside.

- Two bedrooms: a very large one with two windows and air conditioning; another one with a double bed (or 2 single beds) and air conditioning.
- Two bathrooms: a large one with bathtub\shower, a smaller one with a large shower.

- A small intermediate room.

“Appartement très spacieux, meublé et décoré avec beaucoup de goût et de charme. Toutes les pièces ont une vue remarquable sur la campagne toscane. On a même parfois l’impression d’être seul dans le grand parc arboré de la ferme”
“This property is all that’s advertised and more. Amenities, furnishings, location, views are all impeccable and we so enjoyed our two weeks there.”
“The views of the Tuscan countryside are incredible! This was exactly what we imagined (and hoped) our experience in Tuscany would be!”
“Every thing in the house stores the warmth of the hands of its master. In this house you will feel not just a guest at an ordinary hotel, but a welcome guest at a hospitable host.”
“This very peaceful, spacious, clean and comfortable apartment feels like a home away from home. It is located on one of the famous tuscan hills, has great views and is very quiet, so you only hear the birds and bees.”
