Podere Bagnolo is a typical Tuscan farmhouse that has been renovated, retaining its rural origin as an old farmer's home. It is part of a large agricultural estate and is reached along a dirt road from where you can see animals grazing and the cultivated fields of the property. Entirely clad in stone, the traditionally Tuscan interior of the farmhouse is rustic and very cosy with the added comfort of modern accessories: fully air-conditioned, it has four large bedrooms with private bathroom. The well-kept garden surrounding it, from where you can admire beautiful sunsets from the exclusive pool just a few steps from the entrances, stands in the quiet of the most authentic Tuscan countryside and surrounded by the hills of the Val D'Orcia, south of Siena. Situated in a hilly position, the property is a short distance away from the wonderful Renaissance towns of Pienza (13 km) and Montepulciano (5 km) and just 5 minutes from captivating Monticchiello, with its structure of typical medieval fortified borgo and sentinel, from its high dominant position, of wonderful panoramic views. The farmhouse is the ideal starting point for embarking on various itineraries: dedicated to wellness in the renowned spas in the vicinity (Bagno Vignoni, Chianciano Terme, Montepulciano, San Casciano dei Bagni), to art and quality cuisine in the well-known towns that dot the province of Siena, such as Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia, Castiglion d'Orcia, or to go towards Monte Amiata or the region of Chianti.
