    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
    'Vivo d'Orcia is not a place, it is a way of life...' The Castle of Vivo d'Orcia lies in the widespread Orcia valley in southern Tuscany, 2 hours from Florence, 1 hour from Siena, close to such cultural jewels as Pienza, Montalcino and Montepulciano, to name but a few.

    The hamlet lies at an altitude of 900 m above sea level. The particular combination of altitude and Mediterranean climate creates an unusual wealth of flora and fauna. The estate with the impressive castle and the romanic chapel reaches back to the 11th century.

    Count Cervini and his wife spend most of the summer months in residence as attentive and interesting hosts. Incidentally, their castle was featured in the January 2005 issue of The World of Interiors.

    Standing on its own on the edge of the hamlet...

A beautifull, well tended house in a small hamlet on the grounds of the castle of the count and countess of Vivo d'Orcia. The village of Vivo d'Orcia is a few minutes on foot and has a few nice restaurants and shops. The location is at an altitude of 800 or 900 metres, in the woods and near a stream, so it is very quiet and not too hot. The trip to Montacino is about 30 minutes on winding roads.
The house was very nice with a private garden and terrace, all shaded, with a beautifull "green" view of the Monte Amiata, the woods and meadows.
The water (spring water) and the air are very clean.
On the grounds are some other houses / appartments that can be rented; this one has the most privacy.
The salt water pool is nice, surrounded by flowers.
The house itself has no Wifi, but the reception area has.
