Located amidst the splendid countryside of Val d’Orcia (UNESCO monument) just outside (400m) the small town of Castiglione d’Orcia, this independent farmhouse lies in 5 hectares of vineyards, olive groves and woodland and forms part of a nature reserve. The interior of the house combines traditional furniture with contemporary comfort. The owners, a surveyor and his wife who used to be a primary school teacher, come from this area and have three adult sons. The house was previously rented to an architect on a long let, so everything you need is there. The house is surrounded by terraces with garden furniture and there is a private swimming pool. The house’s other attractions include trees, including an old oak tree, which provide welcome shade, the presence of wild animals like deer and porcupine and a splendid panoramic view of the surrounding hills.
