PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Casale del Viaggiatore (House of the Traveller) is located on a hilltop a few kilometres from the borghi of Celle sul Rigo and San Casciano dei Bagni in a vast, well-kept and completely fenced park with many outdoor living areas and an exclusive swimming pool in a panoramic position. From this border area between the marvellous valleys of the Chiana and the Orcia an extraordinary 360° view dominates, starting from the beautiful garden surrounding the house, then stretching over the rolling hills up to the peaks of Monte Amiata (30 km from the summit), stupendous in the reddish sunsets, to the soaring heights of Rocca di Radicofani and Celle sul Rigo and over all the surrounding villages that illuminate the dark evenings. A truly unique setting for those travellers looking for essential pristine landscapes in this magical Sienese countryside which can be explored on foot, by bike or by car. The house reflects the style and personality of the owners who have enriched the rooms with original details and furnishings, while leaving intact the spirit, warmth and architecture of typical Tuscan houses. Casale del Viaggiatore allows you to perfectly combine a holiday dedicated to wellness, thanks to the proximity to the prestigious thermal springs of San Casciano dei Bagni, just 15 minutes from the property, with the possibility of visiting the Tuscan art cities and the suggestive borghi of the surroundings with their intriguing eno-gastronomic proposals, such as Radicofani, Pienza, Montepulciano, San Quirico d'Orcia, Montalcino and many others.
The house consists of 2 independent floors connected only by an external staircase. On the ground floor is the large living room with open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and two twin bedrooms (with joinable beds) sharing a bathroom with tub. On the top floor is a further living room with lounge, dining room and kitchen, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and a twin bedroom (with joinable beds) served by a bathroom with tub. The laundry is located in a room at the side of the house with access from the outside. The air conditioning is only in the bedrooms.
The park is completely fenced and extends for about one hectare of land, most of which is occupied by the accessible olive grove that borders one side of the garden. At the end of cypress-lined drive leading to the entrance to the property, immediately after which is the shaded parking area, is a lush garden mainly covered in lawn with majestic oaks and holm oaks, olive, lemon and pomegranate trees and red rose bushes. The portico, the gazebo and the seats scattered throughout the garden offer a beautiful view of Monte Amiata. The gazebo at the back is equipped with a dining table and, next to it, a stone barbecue. The location of the property is quiet and secluded, despite being located just a few metres from the main road.
