Large Villa with 8 bedrooms sleeping 16 pax. Spanning over 1500 acres in the Val d’Orcia area, in Tuscany, the Estate is framed by verdant valleys, a small lake wooded hills and cultivated fields. The whole estate comprises 11 secluded villas, each with Pool, a working thoroughbred stable, olive oil production and the Abbey established in 1085 by Benedictine monks for which it is named.
Many guests prefer not to leave the estate during their stay, as it is so beautiful passing the time swimming, horse riding, walking, fishing and relaxing. On the edge of the vast nature reserve that makes the Val d’Orcia a perfect spot for nature lovers. All manner of flora and fauna can be found throughout the grounds including tuscan deer, wild boar, rabbits, foxes as well as plant life to satisfy any botanist.
The surroundings are rich in history and culture: the Etruscan zones of Chiusi and Murlo, the spring warm baths of Bagno Vignoni, the villages of Pienza, Cetona and Sarteano. The wine cellars of Montepulciano, Montalcino, Umbria and Lake Trasimeno, are simply at a stone’s throw.
This amazing 15th C villa has its own Swimming Pool and well equipped kitchen. Each bedroom has an ensuite bath and hair dryer. There is a phone extension in each room.
The name indicates the villa was built upon rock but in reality this is as close to paradise as one can get on earth.
“The silver olive groves so silent the perfume of Juniper in the air gives the impression that this place comes from another dimension.”
“I always like to find a bit of time to stop and read on the patio or in the greenhouse that unites the two houses.”
