Antique 18th century farmhouse, situated in the gentle hills of the Valdichiana amongst olive groves, vineyards and fields of wheat and sunflowers. Built around the old farmyard, the heart of rural life of the time, it recently underwent radical renovation that has exalted the original architectural characteristics and has resulted in 6 cosy and comfortable apartments, furnished with original period furniture and equipped with satellite TV and microwaves. It is well positioned allowing a 360° view of the surrounding valley that, in every season, offers a magical alternating of colors: the bright green of spring, the golden yellow of the ripe wheat in summer and, in autumn, the intense ochre of the earth that has just been ploughed and is ready for sowing. There is a beautiful pool (size 6×12 m, depth 0,80-2,00 m) near the house in a panoramic and sunny position, equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs and sun umbrellas.

Festivals in Toscana
Steeped in centuries of rich history stretching far back through medieval times to the Etruscan era Tuscany has had plenty of time to establish some of the most enticing cultural festivals.
The region recently featured in the opening sequences of James Bond; Quantum of Solace in which a chase scene took place through the preserved streets of Sienna during the historical Palio. A festival of sport and local rivalries The Palio is a unique horse race that takes place in the piazza del publico in the centre of this medieval city.
The sights and sounds of competing contrada, municipal districts named after animals, is hard to beat. Each contrada parades through the streets in the days leading up to the race dressed in ornate historical clothing, banging drums and waving flags with awe-inspiring and well-rehearsed precision. On race days, July 2 and August 16, the city is filled to bursting with a party atmosphere and all the excitement of up close bareback horse riding.
For something a little less exhausting the ancient hilltop town of Montelpulciano hosts the Bravio delle Botti during the last week of August. This picturesque town is famed for its surrounding vineyards and has been hosting the wine festival since the 17th century. A week of different ceremonies and special wine tastings culminates in a barrel rolling contest through the narrow streets.
