The villa stands at an altitude of about 310 meters above sea level near Montepulciano (Siena), in Valdichiana.
Like many Tuscan towns, Montepulciano boasts Etruscan origins: indeed, the legend goes that it was founded by the famous king Porsenna.
Disputed over the centuries between Siena and Florence, in 1390 Montepulciano entered into an alliance with the latter. The town experienced then two centuries of political stability and cultural ferment, during which many churches and the residences of several local aristocratic families were built.
The hills around the town are covered with vineyards for the production of two celebrated wines: the Nobile and the Rosso di Montepulciano.
Around the independent villa stretches a fully fenced garden featuring a children's playground equipped with a slide, a playhouse and a garden swing, and the swimming pool (8x4 m; depth: 1.40 m) exclusively reserved to guests.
The grilling equipment is at guests' disposal and the porch is furnished for having meals in the open air.
The villa is a few kilometers from Cortona and Chianciano Terme thermal baths.
Many cities of art of Tuscany and central Italy - such as Pienza, Montalcino, Arezzo, Siena, Todi, Assisi, Perugia and Florence - are within easy driving distance for pleasant one-day trips, whereas nature lovers can visit the nearby Nature Reserve of the Lake of Montepulciano.
Lake Trasimeno, a tennis club and a riding stable are within a few kilometers of the property.
