About the neighborhood
The property is in the countryside, but easily accessible (just off the main road) and close to most interesting tourist destinations of both Southern Tuscany and Umbria: within a 20 minute drive you can find the wonderful hill top town of Montepulciano with its ancient wine cellars, and Cortona, surrounded by its thousand year old Etruscan walls.
Castiglione del Lago, by lake Trasimeno, 14 km distance. For active vacation lovers, there are bicycle paths (Sentiero della Bonifica e Pista ciclabile del lago Trasimeno) very close by.
The Orcia valley, with its jewels Pienza, San Quirico D’Orcia and Bagno Vignoni, is at a 30 minute drive.
Siena and Perugia are easily reachable (by superstrada-dual carriage road) in less than one hour, and from there you can explore the Chianti area with...
