Vacation villa in Valdichiana, near Chianciano Terme, in the province of Siena. Sleeps 10, swimming pool, wide garden, Internet connection. Thermal baths within a few kilometers.
The villa stands in panoramic position at an altitude of about 385 meters on the hills of Valdichiana, just a few kilometers from Chianciano Terme.
Chianciano Terme is one of the most famous thermal towns in Italy. The Etruscan and the Roman already knew the curative properties of the waters of Chianciano; and it was thanks to these two peoples that the village grew to an important town.
The first temples dedicated to the deities of the waters, including the temple of Fucoli, date back to the Etruscan Hellenistic period, whereas the thermal settlement of Mezzomiglio dates to Roman times. Several scholars identify Mezzomiglio with the "bagni chiusini" (Chiusi baths) mentioned by Quinto Orazio Flacco.
The vacation villa with terracotta-tiled floors and beamed ceilings is surrounded by a fully fenced wide garden with a private swimming pool (15x7 m; depth: 1.20-2.50 m) provided with an external shower, the barbecue equipment and two gazebos.
