Among the rolling hills between San Quirico d’Orcia and Radicofani, Villa Val d’Orcia appears.
The Orcia Valley means kilometres of sweet hills. The fields, cultivated by the farmers are like a colorful chessboard which changes during the year, from green to yellow and red in the Autumn. Within few kilometres you can find the vineyards of Brunello, Nobile and Orcia doc red wines as well as olive groves, used to produce the extra virgin olive oil.
Villa Val d’Orcia was built in 1800 and restored in 1993 by the owners. Guests can sense tradition everywhere: the wooden beams, the old local travertine stone on the stairs, the antique furniture but with a touch of practicality together with a warm welcome. There is a large garden where you can lose yourself and a swimming pool where everyone can meet up. Enjoy the barbecue, the roasted meat, the dinners in the open air, the scent of the lavander and rosemary, the chatter during lazy summer afternoons.
All bedrooms and apartments are furnished with antique furniture and family heirlooms, giving an elegant but homely feel. Steps and surfaces have been created from old wooden troughs, old farm equipment has been transformed into mirrors and pieces of the wine barrels have been made into lamps. Travertine steps have become benches. All the bathrooms are private and have a shower. In the suite there is a bath tub for a relaxing and aromatic soak!
The house is suitable for small groups or families. An internal staircase connects all the rooms to a spacious living area with confortable sofa and fireplace on the ground floor. There is an open kitchen fully equipped with dishwasher, oven, toaster, kettle, fridge and freezer.
