It is the most photographed house in the area, a symbol of the Tuscany countryside, featured on many postcards and calendars simply because it has maintained the charm of the old farmhouse and the surrounding fields, without any new buildings as far as the eye can see.
This is located only 500 mt from Pienza, in the open Tuscan countryside. You don't find artificial lawns here or ornamental trees, but just naturally shaded areas and well kept country fields. Rooms have been renovated respecting the original layout of the villa and also maintain the original old cotto floor.
The property is centrally heated throughout and its ground floor, once used to accommodate the farm animals, now houses only the laundry room and the cellars. As in the past centuries, the accommodation is located solely on the upper floor, accessed by an external flight of stone stairs with a porch at the top.
From here, you enter directly the living room with an open fireplace and a sofa to relax and watch the Tv which has the satellite and DVD player or enjoy reading a book.
