“DREAM HOUSE IN A DREAM PLACE”
Reviewed October 1, 2011

Il salcio is the most beautiful house I´ ve ever seen. It´ s settled in the countryside,with open views all around. Only looking out of your window is like seeing a picture.

We have stayed in Pienza´ s apartment, the smallest one. Eventhough,all the space upstairs was unuseful for us, as it´ s so big for 2. Even 4 people could stay comfortably in it. We have choosen it because of its 3 panoramic windows to the countryside and didn´t dissapoint us! It has a big bathroom,with 2 showers and the WC separated from the rest,very modern. The bed is BIG,fantastic! The only down thing for me is the lack of shutters,as I need absolute darkness to sleep in the morning.Eventhough there are courtains,they don´t stop all the sunlight,but it works well for those who have the capacity to sleep with a little amount of light (fortunate them)! The kitchen has ALL the appliances you could need, more than in my own house. All is brand new but, as in the whole house, there is a perfect mix between the modern and the classic elements.

The design Laura has made is incredible perfect, as in a house from a design magazine. From the ”cotto” floor to the wooden ceiling, from the lighting to the modern and pure colours furniture, all matchs perfectly with the surroundings. All the apartments are in the first floor of the building and there is a lift too!

The outside places have been my favourites: the ”porch”with a part inside the house but glazed from floor to ceiling, and the pergola place, with some tables, lounges and chairs to dine, breakfast or rest. And what to tell about the sunsets from the verandah! A great big space with some different spaces with beautiful furniture. I think maybe for the drought period, wasps were so intrusive outside the house, making a bit difficult to eat outside, but this happened only our last days of our stay and, well, it´s the countryside!

Apart from the house, the hosts are incredible friendly and accesible. It´ s a bit difficult to find Il Salcio for the first time by night, and Amedeo came to ”rescue” us with his car when we got lost. Laura takes care of everything for your wellbeing: lits every night candles in the stairs for you, and every space is parfumed with parfum sticks, takes care that there is enough coffee for the Nespresso machine for the guests in the hall, and provides you all the information you need to explore the Val D´ Orcia region. We have travel around Tuscany for 2 weeks, and Val d´Orcia has been the region we have like the most, and Siena and S.Gimignano the villages we loved most.

Ah! for us, the lack of swimming-pool has been a bless! The best thing of Il Salcio is the peace and relax you breath in, and we think a swimming-pool, with children all around shouting and splashing will break this special atmosphere.

Sure I miss something, as our 1 week stay has been a luxury in every way and it´ s imposible to reflect it in words. Only to say if you are lucky to go there,you could be sure you will be in heaven!

Thanks Laura for having create such a beautiful place and for maintain it with such a beautiful care and attitude! Siamo sicuri di ritornare presto dalle Canarie, grazie per tutto!

lovely farmhouse with great views and easy access to the towns around but you can't find it on GPS so you need to pay extra attention. Great services by the owner but because they just started the business so they are still a little inexperience but those were very minor stuff which should not effect your stay.
very beautiful and charming property. We will go back and visit again.
