The Val d’Orcia needs no introduction, one of the most beautiful valleys in Tuscany and a patchwork of olive trees, cypresses and rolling hills interspersed with ancient hilltop towns and ‘crete’ dunes. Farming country that is now strictly protected by UNESCO to guarantee its preservation. Sarteano is just a 7.5 kms drive where you can find restaurants, bars, shops and all necessary services, just 6 kms further and you are on the main A1 autostrada to Florence or Rome and their International airports.

The sale includes approximately 2.5 hectares of land, to the front of the house there is a garden dotted with ancient olive trees which looks out over farmland to the valley beyond, to the right there is a large field with barn that can be removed or possibly recuperated in part (with the relevant permissions) to create a swimming pool area with pergola and to the rear is a large olive grove with around 250 mature trees. Views stretch up to the nearby borgo of Castiglioncello del Trinoro.
