Description

(PRIVATE STRUCTURE, only lease). Welcoming you on your arrival at Il Susino is an enchanting borgo, the Borgo del Grillo, listed in the Catasto Leopoldino (Leopoldine Land Register) as early as 1765, a little gem located on the western slope of Monte Cetona and overlooking the magnificent Val d'Orcia (UNESCO World Heritage Site). From here you look out over an unequaled panorama that encircles the valley and runs along the many rolling hills that wind continuously up to Monte Amiata. Set in this historic borgo is Il Susino, a delightful apartment, completely renovated and equipped with the best mod cons, including air conditioning and mosquito nets in the large bedrooms with view, a large fully-equipped kitchen, an outdoor dining area and a swimming pool (shared with other eventual guests of the borgo). The house maintains its original Tuscan character with wooden ceiling beams, terracotta floors, exterior walls in exposed stone, a comfortable living room with working fireplace and a 200 sq m garden for the exclusive use of the guests. The borgo is part of a 7-hectare property where you can wander on foot or by mountain bike, surrounded by pristine nature. About ten minutes away by car is Sarteano, an old medieval town in southern Tuscany, famous for its archaeological wealth and food and wine. We are between the Val D'Orcia and the Val di Chiana, halfway between Rome and Florence, ten minutes from the Autostrada del Sole and slightly more from the Chiusi train station, both important intersections that allow you to get quickly to Montepulciano, Pienza, Orvieto, Cortona, Lake Trasimeno and many other Umbrian and Tuscan localities. Finally, Sarteano is your reference point for services, shops, supermarkets and restaurants.

Interior

The property has two floors connected internally by a brick staircase. The entrance is on the ground floor and leads into the large living room with fireplace communicating with the kitchen. Both rooms face out onto the outdoor dining area. From the living room a staircase leads up to the first floor with a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and outside access, a twin bedroom with joinable beds and a bathroom with tub.

Park

Il Susino is located inside Borgo del Grillo, a small characteristic residential area that boasts a park with varied lush vegetation consisting of age-old oaks, rows of fragrant broom, the symbolic flower of the Val d'Orcia, rosemary, lavender, evergreen hedges, soaring cypresses, pergolas shaded by delicate wisteria as well as many equipped areas: swimming pool, parking area with a few covered spaces, children's play area, bowling green, barbecue area, panoramic terrace with benches and flower beds. Set in this authentic oasis of peace, where lawn areas alternate with groves of trees, all meticulously looked after, is the 200 sq m garden for the exclusive use of the property, equipped with umbrella, table, chairs and mobile barbecue for tasty open-air meals to be enjoyed in front of the beautiful view of the Val d'Orcia and the spectacular sunsets that colour this valley in gold. The park of the Borgo del Grillo is part of a 7-hectare estate that from the slopes of Monte Cetona descends to the Val d'Orcia, consisting of woods and cultivated fields and where you can walk, hike or explore on mountain bike. NB: the swimming pool, parking area, bowling green, children's play area, barbecue area and panoramic terrace are shared with other eventual guests of the borgo.

Swimming Pool

The pool, not exclusive and heatable at no extra cost, is set on terracing at a higher level than the house, about 25 m from it, in a beautiful panoramic position. It is reached across a stretch of garden and up a short flight of steps bordered by lush vegetation and thick shady trees. Rectangular in shape, it measures 7 x 15 m with the depth ranging from 1.25 to 2.50 m. Water purification is by quarz sand filter; it is lined in PVC and has Roman steps for access to the water. The 80 sq m lawn sunbathing area is completely flat and is equipped with sunbeds, umbrellas, lighting and an external solar-powered, hot-water shower. NB: the pool, open from the last week in May until the first week of september, is not for the exclusive use of the guests, but shared with other eventual guests of the borgo.
