Located between the Val d'Orcia and the hills of the Sienese Chianti, the farmhouse is on two floors: the first floor is accessed by an ancient stone staircase and a small open gallery that lets into a spacious dining room with a Tuscan fireplace, three bedrooms and two bathrooms. On the ground floor there is a living room with stone flooring, a complete bathroom, laundry, a fully equipped professional kitchen with dishwasher, fridge, 6 fire burns and brick barbecue. On request possibility of cooking courses, wine tastings of the best Sienese wines and typical Tuscan dinners. The villa, furnished with style and elegance, preserves the ancient terracotta flooring and wooden beamed ceilings and is part of a seven hectare estate composed of land and forest, surrounded by a large private garden with private swimming pool, sun deck with river sand, and a small pond. Thanks to its superb location the villa is the ideal starting point to visit the Val di Chiana and Val d'Orcia with its wonderful medieval towns such as Cortona, Montepulciano, San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza, as well as Montalcino and San Gimignano and the beautiful art towns of Siena, Florence and Arezzo. An ideal place for a relaxing holiday, taking long walks in the woods or visiting the most beautiful and striking sites of Tuscany. Podere Pievina is an off-grid accommodation: the farmhouse is almost entirely self-sufficient for its own needs and those of its guests thanks to the installation of a photovoltaic and solar thermal system, as well as rainwater harvesting, which helps to offer guests a relaxing and totally eco-friendly vacation. Additional Location Information Situated in the heart of Tuscany, near the centre of the little town of Sinalunga, it is an ideal spot for exploring the natural and artistic beauties of the two central regions of Italy, Tuscany and Umbria, as it is not far from the highway connecting Perugia and Siena. Both localities can be reached in less than an hour. The A1 motorway exit Valdichiana is a few kilometres away, permitting easy and fast travel in all central Italy. The property uses the railway station of Sinalunga, connected with the more important one of Chiusi. Distances to: * Airports: Firenze 122 Km, Pisa 211 km, Roma 226 Km, Milano 457 Km * Train Station: Sinalunga 7 Km, Chiusi 45 km, Siena 49 Km * Highway: highway exit A1 Valdichiana 13,7 km * Attractions within 100 km: Montepulciano 23 km, Arezzo 34 km, Siena 51 km, Pienza 26 km, San Gimignano 91 km, Montalcino 40 km, Radda in Chianti 61 km, Greve in Chianti 81 km, Cortona 33 km, Perugia 69 Km * Services and shops: Farnetella 1 km, Sinalunga 6,5 km * Beach: Tyrrhenian Sea 136 Km * Access road: paved till the entrance gate Antico casale in pietra del 1700 restaurato con criterio conservativo che ne ha lasciati intatti il fascino e la bellezza di un tempo. Situato tra la Val d'Orcia e le colline del Chianti senese, il casolare è diviso su due piani: si accede al primo piano da un'antica scala in pietra ed un piccolo loggiato che apre su un'ampia sala da pranzo toscana con un grande camino, tre grandi camere da letto e due bagni. Al piano terra un salone con pavimenti in pietra che ospita il salotto, una cucina attrezzata e professionale con lavastoviglie, frigo, barbecue in muratura. Su prenotazione si effettuano corsi di cucina, degustazioni dei migliori vini senesi e cene dai tipici sapori toscani; il casale, arredato con stile ed eleganza, conserva gli antichi pavimenti in cotto ed i soffitti a travi di legno ed è annesso ad una tenuta di sette ettari di terreno e bosco, immerso in un ampio giardino privato con piscina, terrazza solarium con sabbia di fiume, ed un piccolo lago naturale. Non lontano dalla villa, le scuderie che ospitano i cavalli dei proprietari, ed i prati a loro riservati. Grazie alla sua splendida posizione è il punto di partenza ideale per visitare la Val di Chiana e la Val d'Orcia con i suoi meravigliosi borghi medievali quali: Cortona, Montepulciano, San Quirico d'Orcia, Pienza, e da qui sino a Montalcino e San Gimignano, nonché le bellissime città d'arte di Siena, Firenze ed Arezzo. Luogo ideale per una vacanza rilassante, per lunghe passeggiate nei boschi o per conoscere i luoghi più belli e suggestivi della Toscana. Podere Pievina è una struttura Off-Grid: il Podere, grazie all'installazione di un impianto fotovoltaico e solare termico, nonché al sapiente recupero delle acque piovane, è quasi del tutto autosufficiente per il proprio fabbisogno e per quello degli ospiti, contribuendo ad offrire ai propri ospiti una vacanza rilassante e completamente ecosostenibile.

What a special place run by two great hosts, Grazia and Oscar. Great location, beautiful characterful villa and also very well equipped. Loved every minute and was very sorry to leave. Remember to book the pizza party at home - brilliant!
