Everyone has their own idea of what constitutes the perfect Tuscan landscape; for many the area between Sarteano and Cetona fulfils all their ideals with its balance of olives, cypresses and vineyards, terraced in a way that has remained unchanged for centuries. The view across the valley to Citta della Pieve is particularly rewarding in the evening light when it appears to be stage lit by the golden setting sun. The other great advantage of the area is the accessibility both to the A1 autostrada and mainline railway station in Chiusi.

The house is surrounded by approximately 2 hectares of land that is entirely fenced in, with woodland to the rear of the property and a private lane leading from the road it guarantees complete privacy and tranquility. The surrounding gardens have been immaculately maintained with mature trees and shrubs whilst covered terraces on two sides of the house provide plenty of spaces to eat out and enjoy the views.

Restored in 2004 to a high standard the house is currently divided into 3 apartments (2 on the ground floor and one large apartment upstairs) which allows a lot of scope for summer rentals or very easily covering the house into a single residence.
