Elegant rows of cypresses and Mediterranean pines that wind along the sides of a dirt road will lead you to the Fattoria L'Olmo Rosso, once an old farmhouse and today a peaceful country retreat, nestled in the pleasant, charming setting of the Sienese countryside. Thanks to the extensive grounds and the large interior, with comfortable living areas, traditional-style bedrooms and modern bathrooms, this rustic residence will be the ideal destination for large groups of people looking for a tranquil, discreet place but at the same time convenient for going off to explore the surrounding area. Part of a large farm estate, Fattoria L'Olmo Rosso offers a picturesque view over the extensive vineyards that preside the property, with 50 hectares of green, walkable woodland at the far end. We are just outside the town of Sinalunga, with its bars, restaurants and supermarkets, and in the heart of the Chiana Valley, an area that contains all the best that Tuscany can offer, embodied in good food and good wine, in the alluring green, hilly countryside full of enchanting art masterpieces scattered throughout the territory. Easy to reach, thanks to the proximity of the Autostrada del Sole and the main highways, the house is the perfect departure point for visiting all major centres of interest nearby including, just to name a few, the beautiful villages of Chianti and the Crete Senesi, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and Cortona, the renowned spa towns of Rapolano and Chianciano Terme and the beautiful art cities of Siena and Arezzo.

A private driveway lined with cypress and pine trees leads to a parking area next to the entrances to the farmhouse. In the garden are olive trees, cypresses, firs and potted plants around the house. Outside the kitchen is an outdoor dining area, equipped with comfortable seating and a large table and shaded by a gazebo. A panoramic veranda on the first floor with two wicker armchairs is the perfect place for a quiet afternoon rest.Please notice that photos are taken in spring, therefore flower blossoming, and the colours of the gardens' grass could be different at the moment of your arrival at the villa.
