Set on a promontory inside a vast farm estate which grows the top quality grapes that produce the prestigious nectar of the gods, the red and inimitable Nobile di Montepulciano, the Casa di Bacco stands guard over a landscape where the immense, elegant geometry of the vineyards cover the rolling hills of Siena, offering a stunning setting, embellished by the scents and colours of the unique green Val di Chiana, that stretches as far as the eye can see to the borgo of Montepulciano, with its bell towers and soaring towers in the foreground. Originally an old farmhouse that has been finely renovated, this house built in brick fully reflects the traditional Tuscan architecture and is ideal for large groups of people who want to share the spacious and welcoming common areas yet, at the same time, have their own private space. The house has a large living room with fully-equipped kitchen and eight elegant bedrooms, divided into different units, classically furnished with air conditioning, satellite TV, mini-bar and each with private bathroom, four with hydromassage tub. Outside, in the beautiful and extensive private garden, shaded by a screen of Mediterranean pines arranged in a ring around the house, guests can relax in the peaceful atmosphere of the typical countryside, with the panoramic gazebo set up for living outdoors and the large pool. A sojourn in this exclusive property, located just a few kilometres from the splendid borgo of Montepulciano, in the midst of an area of great artistic and landscape interest, will allow you to organize visits to the numerous art cities and beautiful little historical towns, both in Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria, with reinvigorating breaks at the many spa resorts in the immediate vicinity (Montepulciano, Rapolano and Chianciano Terme), which represent the peak of excellence in this part of Tuscany.

The house stands in a farm estate which extends for about 25 hectares, composed for the most part of the vineyards that extend over the surrounding valley, bordered at the end by woods. The park, for the exclusive use of the guests and accessed along a short, elegant driveway flanked by cypress trees, consists of a large, beautiful garden of about 6000 sq m where cypresses, olives and a row of shady Mediterranean pines surrounding the whole house alternate with potted geraniums and colourful bushes of broom, lavender and rosemary. At the back of the house, next to the kitchen door, is the outdoor area: a panoramic gazebo, furnished with tables and chairs and overlooking the pool and the vineyard, stands next to a stone structure with barbecue. There is a parking area at the end of the driveway, next to all the entrances to the house.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.
The large rectangular pool is set on terracing situated at a lower level than the house, in a very discreet position overlooking the vineyards that surround the property. It is about 15m from the house and is reached down a flight of terracotta steps bordered with oleanders next to the gazebo. The pool is lined in PVC with travertine border and measures 8 x 18 m with a constant depth of 1.50 m. It has chlorine purification and internal and external lighting. In the surrounding sunbathing area, paved in terracotta and embellished with a green wall of lavender bushes, are sunbeds, deckchairs, umbrellas and a solar-powered shower.
