Full Description

Renovated ancient farmhouse (240 sq.m.), located in the southern part of the Siena province on the border between Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, a few kilometres from Cetona and from San Casciano thermal baths. The property has 2 hectares of garden with olive trees and a pool.

The villa, which was originally an old farmhouse, is located in the southern part of the Siena province on the border between Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio, a few kilometres from Cetona and from San Casciano thermal baths.

Situated on the slopes of Mount Cetona and surrounded by greenery, the villa is reached by a quiet secondary road.

This beautiful old farmhouse, divided into several sections that follow the natural slope of the hill, is newly renovated but keeping tradition aspects in mind. The technique and the materials used are typical of the buildings in the area: ancient wooden beams, terracotta floors on the ground floor, wooden floors on the second, stone and terracotta tiled roofs.

Behind the house a shady pergola and a wrought-iron gazebo give shelter from the sun during the day and cool at night.

A gently sloping lawn leads to the swimming pool with another wrought iron gazebo.
The garden (two hectares) is large and the well-kept lawn invites you to stretch out on it and sleep (we can vouch for this!).All around are olive trees, a small vineyard and cypresses.
The villa is on two floors and the rooms are spacious and bright.

On the ground floor kitchen with fireplace, dining room, a large living room with fireplace, study, guest bathroom, bedroom with ensuite.

On the first floor a double bedroom with ensuite, three double bedrooms and two bathrooms.

This property would make an ideal holiday rental cottage, it is already let by the present owners, or a B&B.
