This is the perfect location to relax and unwind, where you can choose to do as much or as little as you wish. This newly built hamlet has a collection of eleven privately owned villas and apartments finished to a very high standard. The hamlet has been designed in the traditional Tuscan style using local materials and the typical architectural style. All the properties are fully furnished and well equipped; each has its own private terrace or garden and two of the villas have their own private pool. The shared pool has a paved surround furnished with loungers and parasols and is set in a stunning position overlooking the surrounding countryside. Podere Ampella hamlet is positioned between the historic towns of San Giovanni d'Asso and Montisi where there are plenty of restaurants, shops and banks. The hamlet is ideally situated for exploring Tuscany with the cities of Florence, Siena, Arezzo, Pisa and Lucca within easy reach, or venture over the border into Umbria to visit the historic cities of Assisi, Orvieto and Perugia. San Giovanni D'Asso is a delightful hilltop town only 3kms from Ampella Hamlet. Dating back to medieval times the village surrounds the walls of a twelfth century castle. Here you will find traditional Tuscan restaurants and shops selling the local produce. The town boasts the only truffle museum in Italy, as well as hosting an annual truffle festival in November each year. There are also two important churches; the Romanesque church, San Giovanni Battista, and San Pietro in Villare. The picturesque Tuscan town of Montisi is 4kms from Ampella Hamlet. In August each year there is the annual jousting competition “Giostra di Simone” which sees many of the townsfolk dress up in medieval costume. More
