Casa al Fiume is a typical rural building, initially used as a barn for the use of the main and adjacent farmhouse, whose origins date back to the early nineteenth century. The recent renovation, carried out by the current owners according to the dictates of local tradition and respecting the landscape and environmental characteristics, has produced a welcoming refuge for lovers of nature in its purest and simplest essence. The farmhouse, passed a few meters from the main road, is surrounded by greenery, in an enchanted atmosphere against the backdrop of a natural and extraordinary setting, embellished by thick wooded vegetation, naturally bordered by the Ciuffenna river that surrounds the property all around. In this evocative and reserved setting, guests can spend a comfortable stay in full harmony with the surrounding landscape, wrapped in an atmosphere of quiet but enlivened by the sweet sounds of nature. At the same time, Casa al Fiume represents an excellent starting point to quickly reach the main cities of Tuscany, such as Siena, Florence and Arezzo, to admire their majestic artistic and cultural heritage. Finally, with daily excursions, it is possible to visit the beautiful surrounding towns such as Gaiole or Radda along the Chianti road, or Montepulciano, Cortona, Pienza, San Gimignano and others: all to make this experience unique, complete and therefore unforgettable. .

The farmhouse is spread over two floors. The entrance on the ground floor leads, through a French window, directly to the living area where the living room, with sofa bed and satellite TV, and the kitchen with dining area are concentrated in a single spacious room. A double bedroom and a bathroom with tub and shower hood complete the composition of the top. Finally, a wooden staircase from the living room leads to the double bedroom, located on the upper floor. Air conditioning only in the bedrooms.
The property covers an area of about 4000 square meters, largely composed of wood and arable land. The garden, around the farmhouse, is characterized by a vast lawn dotted with a varied assortment of fragrant plants and olive, hazelnut, oak and succulent fruit trees. Outside the kitchen, a pergola, surrounded by scented climbing wisteria plants, is equipped with table and chairs for outdoor dining, immersed in an atmosphere that inspires peace and tranquility. A brick barbecue, located a few meters from the house, is available to guests for tasty barbecues with friends. Finally, for those who want to immerse themselves in the fresh waters of the Ciuffenna river or even dabbling in fishing, or simply admiring the beautiful spectacle that nature generously offers in this corner of paradise, just walk a few meters through the walnut grove that borders the property, just beyond the swimming pool. NB: It should be noted that the photo shoots are usually made in spring, therefore the colors and blooms of the gardens, lawns and parks may be different at the time of your entry into the villa.
The pool area is located on a lower level than the farmhouse from which it is about 20 m away and can be reached via a paved ramp that starts from the pergola in front. The dimensions are 12 x 6 m with a variable depth from a minimum of 1.40 m to a maximum of 2.80 m. The tank is lined with PVC and is equipped with a ladder for accessing the water. The purification plant is chlorine-based and is equipped with internal lighting. A welcoming sunbathing area, partly covered in terracotta and partly with lawn and surrounded by plant bushes, is furnished with sun loungers and deck chairs. In one corner, a gazebo with armchairs and a table allows you to spend pleasant moments of relaxation in the shade, in the company of the sweet sounds of nature, such as the chirping of birds and the slow flow of water in the nearby river.
