The building is a very nice renovated old italian farm, typical for the area. Our appartement was large and we had space enough. The kitchen was very well equiped. The swimming pool was large and necessary to relax and have joy with the children. There were many open areas around the house that you could enjoy the view and to breathe the fresh air of Tosany in the afternoon or early in the morning.Of course be prepared for the mosquitos, not to disturb you.
Near by the house there was the super market and also the village of Buonconvento with nice ice-creams and quiet small restaurants-all in better prices than the bigger cities like Sienna. Sienna was three quarters drive.
But there are smaller and nicer villages and a person could visit a different one every day. They all have a nice center to visit.

It is close to Montalcino, land of the famous Brunello wine, and is surrounded by 100 ha of vineyards and grain cultivations. These charming hills make the countryside unique and ever so beautiful in all seasons. This area is full of history, with its ancient stones and red brick walls, and therefore is a special place for physical and mental relaxation. ... more less
