    Rental Home – 
    4 Bedrooms, 4 Bathrooms, Sleeps 8
    Nestled at the base of a Montagnola hillside not far from Siena exists a tribute to relaxed well-being and excellence in gardening. For in a former stone quarry, nurtured greenery has reclaimed a rock face and modest offices have become a sprawling home whose comfortable rooms all access its gracious gardens. The striking juxtaposition of stone and foliage is present throughout the property - from the heated pool encircled by rock walls and shady holm oaks to the gracious wisteria arbour which outlines the perimeter of the quarry to the wide flagstone paths and patios edged by fragrant lavender and rosemary. This mix can only help one relax in the natural beauty of this corner of Tuscany.
    The house is approached via wide furnished patios facing the olive grove and the main entrance throug...

    Additional Location Information
    This is great walking and biking country and once out of the property gates there is easy access to country roads that meander up to ancient castles or down to the River Merse. In the nearby village of Orgia the Museum of the Woods reveals how local woodsmen once made their living in the green hills that are still a haven for chestnut or mushroom gatherers.
    Yet there are good connections to medieval Siena, renaissance Florence and the crystal waters of the southern Tuscan coast. With easily arranged catering and transport, this Tuscan retreat can pamper and fascinate, and leave you with memories that linger.

From the other reviews that I've read on this property, I feel as if we stayed in a completely different villa. Though the grounds and villa were ample in size, the house is quite worn and in need of an update. There was a bathroom for each of the 4 bedrooms, but only 2 had a true shower and one... more

Management response:

Dear Joan, I was sorry to read this review. You contacted us upon arrival to complain of the closed shutters and lack of cleanliness, and Carla was dispatched to solve the problem. We apologised, you declared yourself satisfied, and yet here is a terrible review of this beautiful house. And some of the things you complain of are clearly described... more

We are currently in our 3rd week here. We are absolutely delighted. The property wasn't our first choice as we had intended to stay at Casole d'Elsa where we have rented twice before. But we are glad that the property was recommended to us. It lis below the village of Orgia, location of Restaurant Cateni, which in itself is worth... more
