About our home

A wonderful setting in which to enjoy the delights of this world acclaimed region of southern Tuscany.

Our house,which is in the famous Brunello wine region, is an authentic property renovated to the highest standards complete with all modern conveniences and enjoying fantastic 360 degree views plus a large infinity swimming pool .

The nearest town,Buonconvento, is 10 minutes away and we are only 15 minutes from the world heritage area of Val d'Orcia and within easy reach of the UNESCO city of Siena and many perfectly preserved medieval hilltop towns including Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano.

For those visiting Italy for the first time you should know that our place is in the area where almost all the iconic calendar scenes of Tuscany are photographed......we think you will agree thateven our own amateur SWOP site photos look very appealing!

The internal space is 125 square meters .The main bedroom has a kingsize bed and an en-suite inc shower toilet and bidet.The second bedroom has twin beds and plenty of wardrobe space.The separate bathroom is shared with the 3rd bedroom which also has twin beds .

Between the sitting room and the kitchen is the internal open plan dining area which consists of a circular marble table and 6 chairs.

Throughout the high ceilings are beamed with terracotta tiling in the traditional authentic style.This design helps to keep the house cool during the summer and for this reason we never need air conditioning

The kitchen which is large by Italian standards was tastefully extended 3 years ago and has all the usual mod cons including wine chiller, 5 ring gas hob, dishwasher and 2 separate sinks( the stone one is used for food preparation ).

The sitting room photo should give you a good idea of its internal space which has ample seating for 6

The outside main terrace (see photo of us at the table) is totally private and looks down our land of some 1 acre and then across to the little hamlet that is called Le Befa.The long outside dining table sits 6/8 comfortably and next to this there is a sitting area with relaxing seating for 6 .

We are close to the ancient via Franciagena route to Rome and our place was originally used by pilgrims as a stopping off point

The large infinity pool is shared with 3 other families who live in the large house some 30 metres from our plot .One of the owners lives in the USA the other couple live in Trieste the last occupier being the local dentist and their 8 year old daughter.
