Holiday Rental House
Owner's description: Overlooking the wide Orcia valley The name of this house means 'beautiful view' - rightly so, as the entire Orcia valley and the Amiata mountain are spread out below. The house lies at 600 metres above sea level, not far from the medieval castle Castelletto belonging to the estate, where exhibitions and a music festival take place in summer. Fields and woods surround Belguardo, which includes a large stone granary. Over the long, two-storied farmhouse grow vines and roses, lavender and rosemary.  This farmhouse is divided into three sections, one of which is occupied by the farmer's family whilst the other two are for rent. The square in front of the house is paved with large flat stones and in Italian is called the 'aia'. This is where the wheat used to be threshed....Owner's description: Overlooking the wide Orcia valley The name of this house means 'beautiful view' - rightly so, as the entire Orcia valley and the Amiata mountain are spread out below.

The square in front of the house is paved with large flat stones and in Italian is called the 'aia'. This is where the wheat used to be threshed. Behind the house lies a beautifully maintained garden with stunning views. At the far end of the garden there is a pool with sunbeds and deckchairs. Due to the altitude, even on the hottest summer day pleasant breezes prevail. The overall atmosphere is one of rustic charm and comfort. A country restaurant where you can have breakfast, lunch and dinner is in walking distance (1.5 km), if you feel like a stroll.  This house belongs to a large property which extends over the hills overlooking the Val d'Orcia, an enchanting and miraculously unspoilt valley in southern Tuscany, listed as UNESCO world heritage in 2004. Midway between Florence and Rome, the estate is also within easy reach of Siena, Arezzo, Perugia, Assisi and Orvieto. Renaissance and medieval gems such as Pienza, Montepulciano, Monticchiello and Montalcino and the Abbey of Sant'Antimo are only a few miles away. The countryside around the estate abounds in lovely walks in the woods and the typical 'crete senesi' (clay hills) of the region. The food of this region is considered the best in Tuscany and famous wines such as the Vino Nobile di Montepulciano and Brunello di Montalcino can be sampled in the local cellars.

Florence and Rome can be reached by train in one and a half hours from the nearby station Chiusi. In San Quirico d'Orcia make sure you see the Horti Leonini, an early Renaissance garden, as well as the western door in the city wall and the Collegiata (main church). Montalcino is beautifully situated on a hill inhabited since Etruscan times, swathed in vineyards and olive groves. It is a quiet, affluent, attractive town with pretty buildings and flower-filled squares, and many shops selling the Brunello di Montalcino. Montepulcino is a graceful Tuscan hill town, best known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which was being praised by connoisseurs over 200 years ago and can certainly contend with Italy's best today. Pienza, the unfinished 'utopian' city, was commissioned by Pope Pius II in 1459. In just three years the cathedral, the papal and bishop's palaces and the central part of the town were completed, but the extensive project ended abruptly when Pius died only two years after the consacration of the cathedral. Monte Oliveto Maggiore: This abbey was founded by three Sienese noblemen who left the city to live a life dedicated to prayer, religion, etc. and who founded the Olivetan order - an off-shoot of the Benedictines. The most important thing to see at this still active and working Monastery is the cycle of frescoes that decorate the monumental cloister. They describe the live of Saint Benedict and were painted by Signorelli and Sodoma. There are also some beautiful marquetry stalls in the church itself.  It is a very magical and serene place set in the midst of exceptionally beautiful countryside. It is home to a dozen monks who specialize in restMore
