Vacation villa in Sienese Valdichiana, on the hills of Montepulciano. Sleeps 14, garden, swimming pool, barbecue equipment. Tennis club, riding stable and thermal baths within a few kilometers.
The villa stands at an altitude of about 605 meters on the hills that surround Montepulciano (Siena), in Valdichiana.
Montepulciano is a charming town of Etruscan origin: the legend goes that it was founded by the famous king Porsenna.
Like many other Tuscan towns, throughout the centuries Montepulciano was disputed between Florence and Siena and in 1390 entered into an alliance with the former. Two centuries of political stability and cultural ferment followed, during which important architects of the time built various churches and many residences for the aristocratic families of the town. It is in this period that the famous poet Agnolo Poliziano was born and lived in Montepulciano.
Nowadays Montepulciano is renowned all over the world for its famed wines: the Rosso and the Nobile di Montepulciano.
The former farmhouse has been renovated with an eye to preserving some original architectural elements, such as the beamed ceilings and the terracotta-tiled floors.
In the garden that surrounds the villa are the private swimming pool (12x6 m; depth: 1.50 m) furnished with sun loungers and chairs, and an annex with a bathroom with shower.
