Hidden in a magical scenery, with the ever-changing charms of the ...hills and old villages rich in art, history and culture, La Saracina is an elegant country home in the heart of Tuscany.
Beautifully positioned on a hill at the top of a spectacular avenue of cypresses, it is perfect for visiting the Val d’Orcia and its ancient towns. Among these are Pienza, little “gioiello” of the Reinassance, Montepulciano and Montalcino with their production of great Tuscan wines and superb olive oils. Further afield are Siena, Arezzo and Perugia also the land of Chianti Classico and the evocative scenery of the Crete Senesi landscape.
The six rooms, all beautifully appointed and named after local vineyards, open on to the mediterranean garden of lavender and rosemary. The fabrics and their colours have been chosen with love as have the local handicrafts and antiques.
The open beams, the vaulted ceilings and the tiled floors pleasantly complement the pastel colours of the walls.
The suites have been converted from the old stables and are further enhanced by the presence of open fireplaces and luxury bathrooms, a jacuzzi bath, a marble-tiled shower with soft fluffy coloured towels. Armchairs and warm rugs complete the picture of a comfortable living area.
As night gently gives way to day you are slowly awakened by the heavenly singing of the birds and distant ringing of the bells of the sheep.
Gradually the sleepy wanderer becomes aware of the fragrances of the new dawn, the rising sun, its early rays filtering through the branches of the ancient trees, a brief glimpse of an almost-forgotten past....
Amongst the vines and olive trees, near the ancient almond tree, in an idyllic setting of pergolas covered by roses and wisteria, you will discovered the swimming pool.
Going down a little path you will find the sheltered tennis court wich is surrounded by broom and has a wonderful view of the valley.Relax on a walk through the wooded estate and enjoy the smell of trees mushrooms and corbezzolo.
To enable you to discover more about our region and its beauty we can recommend typical restaurants, cultural and gastronomic tours, nature walks and horse or mountain bike rides.
