Just three kilometres from the historic centre of Siena, the most Gothic city in Tuscany, you are offered an authentic piece of paradise when you pass through the entrance gate of La Fonte di Santa Regina, set on the top of a hill and suspended in the heart of the Tuscan countryside in a unique scenery, surrounded by green hills studded with rows of vines and olive trees and cultivated fields that ring the peaks of Monte Amiata on the horizon. In the centre stands the imposing structure of this farmhouse, of remote origins, today transformed into a luxury residence by architectural intervention of the highest quality. Stone is the protagonist, exposed on the external façades and the ceilings, combined with wood and more modern materials. Respect for local tradition stands side by side with a refined choice of minimal, essential modernity, designed to offer maximum comfort for a perfect stay. The spacious rooms are a blaze of light, enhanced by the large windows of the living area and the panoramic bedrooms with their elegant private bathrooms. The furnishings are luxurious and refined, yet characterised by maximum functionality and efficiency, as are the accessories (high-performance Wi-Fi, air conditioning everywhere, home automation system). In an adjoining annex, within the park, is a large hall suitable for various events such as conferences, work meetings or ceremonies, completed by a large kitchen (available on request at an extra cost), as well as a fitness area with gym and a fabulous wellness room equipped with sauna and whirlpool tub. Completing this idyllic picture is a vast, well-kept and welcoming park, with numerous set-up areas, a lovely infinity pool and a view that stretches as far as the eye can see, framing the city of Siena and the Torre del Mangia in the distance: the perfect context for regenerating body and spirit supported by the rhythms of nature as well as having close by all the most sought-after destinations around the medieval city of the Palio: the valleys of the Orcia and Chiana rivers, the Crete Senesi, Chianti and unmissable borghi of eternal charm like Montalcino, Pienza, San Gimignano and Montepulciano, all quickly reachable along splendid panoramic roads.
The complex consists of two structures: the main house and an annex located a few metres away, near the pool. MAIN HOUSE: this consists of two residential units with independent entrance that do not communicate with each other internally. In the first unit, only on ground level, is the large main living room with sitting area, large dining table and kitchen. In the sleeping area are two bedrooms with ensuite bathroom with shower and two double bedrooms sharing a bathroom with shower (suitable for the disabled). In the second unit, on two levels, the main entrance leads into an open-plan area with living room, dining table and kitchen. The ground floor is completed by a double bedroom with private bathroom with shower. A staircase in glass and iron leads up to the top floor with three double bedrooms with private bathroom with shower. The laundry room is available to both units. ANNEX: two large doors open into a spacious room suitable for events, conferences and business meetings (with guest bathroom), then from here a few steps lead to a equipped kitchen with central island. These rooms are available on request (at an extra cost). On the lower level of the annex, reached from the pool area via a flight of steps or, alternatively, from the house across the garden, is a gym and wellness area with heated whirlpool tub, sauna and a bathroom with shower.
Thirty hectares of land delimit the immense spaces of this modern farm estate, with alternating olive trees, vineyard and woodland, fenced for about 12 hectares (by electro welded mesh height 1.80 m) leand for the most part passable on foot and suitable for playing games. A splendid, expertly-designed park of about 1500 sq m surrounds the house: between winding paths, bordered by wavy flowering bushes of herbs, which lead to the two ground floor entrances to the house, are large areas of manicured lawn, reinvigorated by young olive and cypress trees and, again, many bushes of lavender, rosemary, myrtle and sage adorning the walkways that lead to the set-up areas: the two gazebos (located on either side of the house in a panoramic position), a delightful seating area located at the entrance of the wellness area, a children's play area and ping-pong table, a wood oven, barbecue area and the pool area provide guests with wonderful moments of relaxation and fun with the complicity of fascinating panoramic views from every part of the park. The property has an automatic access gate and a large parking area, located at the end of the short internal driveway, just a few steps from the entrances to the house.
A few steps across the garden and a short flight of steps (as an alternative to the paved walkway) go from the house to the pool area: a natural scenic terrace, embellished by the rows of olive trees and vineyards of the property that stretch as far as the eye can see to the peaks of Mount Amiata and the Torre del Mangia. In the centre lies the beautiful, south-facing infinity pool, perfect for sitting out at sunset or at night, when a clever play of lighting inside and outside the pool creates a magical atmosphere. The pool is edged with travertine slabs and lined in PVC in an innovative design inspired by the natural element of marble, conferring a unique and iridescent character, based on the natural light of the sun. It measures 5 x 15 m with the depth varying from 1.20 to 1.40 m. A ramp of submerged steps facilitates entry. A cold and hot-water shower is located in a corner of the area and there is a chlorine purification system. Comfortable seats and the sitting area, shaded by large umbrellas, are the perfect complement to the solarium, which is enhanced by a dining area with large table, sink and barbecue, guaranteeing full relaxation in the open air. The pool is available to guests from the last Saturday of April until the first Saturday of October.
