A truly central location!
Casale Farnetella, a traditional stone built farmhouse set amongst the Sienese hills also enjoys, in its own privacy, astonishingly beautiful views out over vineyards and mature olive groves. From under the covered porch the most spectacular sunsets can be witnessed.
The house itself, surrounded by hectares of land with both shaded and sunny niches has many secluded corners where one can while away a peaceful afternoon undisturbed. Adjacent woods allow for gentle walks in a cooler, fresher environment and the surrounding landscape is ideal for cycling.
There are many areas around the house to enjoy the sun and peace of the countryside - a covered porch with a barbecue is ideal for lunch or dinner and there is a breakfast patio leading off the kitchen with wonderful views over the valley.
The house is composed of a big kitchen, a living room with traditional fire place, a bathroom and two store rooms on the ground floor.
On the first floor there are three bedrooms, a bathroom and a study with fireplace.
All of the rooms are spacious and the property abounds with light. The ceilings have traditional wooden beams and the floors are laid in various types of ‘cotto’. There is one nearby property which removes any sense of isolation, but the house enjoys its privacy…..and fabulous sunsets!
A VILLA WITH VERY SPECIAL , VERY PRIVATE VIEWS.
Where else on a clear day can you look out north over the Val di Chiana all the way to Arezzo , taking in the walled towns of Lucignano and Monte San Savino? Or come dusk , look out west to see the sun setting amongst the trees? At nightfall the neighbouring village of Rigomagno stands out with its encircling necklace of lights , and all these views can be enjoyed not only from the house itself , but even more intimately from its surrounding terraces.
A VILLA SURROUNDED BY THE BEST OF ITALY
Private but not isolated. Ten minutes from the Rome / Milan motorway, five minutes from Sinalunga , half an hour from historic Montepulciano (as in Vino Nobile) , Montalcino (as in Brunello) , and Cortona ("Under the Tuscan Sun") ; and forty minutes from the provincial capitals of Siena (of "Palio" fame) and Arezzo (where the Oscar winning movie "Life is Beautiful" was filmed)....Not to mention Pienza , Perugia , Citta' del Pieve and so many more.
A VILLA TO GROW
"Casale Farnetella" is a home which moulds itself to the taste of whoever is fortunate enough to possess it. It is an ideal base for touring , but also perfect for homestay. Each proprietor decides what he wants to make of it. As soon as we saw "Casale Farnetella" we fell in love with the property....It has a positive vibrant atmosphere , and we just knew we would be happy there . And so it has been. We have had the privilege of calling it ours for more than twenty years and shall be sorry to part with it , but it is now time to pass the torch to new owners who will create their own magic.
