Casa Valdichiana Tuscany

Just across the border with Umbria, situated in Tuscany lies this modern and comfortable holiday rental with five apartments of which we rent two. An ideal location to explore Umbria and Tuscany.

The Casa Valdichiana holiday rental is situated in a typically Tuscan landscape with rolling hills, pine trees and cipresses. It is surrounded by fields with wheat, sunflowers, olive trees and grapes. The opposite neighbour is a wineproducer and the fields with grapes are immaculate. The spacious pool is fenced and views Montepulciano on its hill top in the distance.

The estate is split up in five apartments from different owners. We rent two of the apartments: Palazzuolo and Bellavista. The first is from Belgian owners, the second from English owners that each created a comfortable home away from home.

The fenced pool is situated at the back down the slope. It measures 5m by 11m and is 1,20 to 1,80m deep. There are sunbeds and umbrellas. At this side of the two buildings are barbecues, each building has one for common use.

Distances from here: Cortona, Montepulciano and Castiglione del Lago 20 minutes driving, Siena 50 minutes, Perugia 40 minutes, Assisi 60 minutes. The Terontola-Cortona train station has direct connections to Rome and Florence and is only 15 minutes driving from the house.
