PRIVATE STRUCTURE (Lease only - CIR CODE: 052027LTN0037). 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 completely fenced park with 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 garden surrounding the house, then stretching over the rolling hills up to the peaks of Monte Amiata (30 km from the summit), protagonists of the reddish sunsets, to the soaring heights of Rocca di Radicofani and Celle sul Rigo and arrives 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 interesting 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 there are the living room with open-plan lounge, kitchen and dining area with exit next to the pergola equipped for outdoor dining, a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and direct exit to the garden, and two twin bedrooms (with joinable beds) sharing a bathroom with tub, one of which has a direct exit to the garden. 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 washing machine is located in a technical compartment at the side of the house with access from the outside. The fireplaces can be used on request.


The park is completely fenced and extends for about one hectare of land, mostly busy 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 the garden mainly covered in lawn with majestic oaks and holm oaks, olive, lemon and pomegranate trees and red rose bushes. Portico, pergola and the seats scattered throughout the garden offer a beautiful view of Monte Amiata. The pergola at the back near the kitchen is equipped with a dining table and, more distant towards the hedge that delimits the border is the brick barbecue. The location of the property is quiet and secluded, despite being located just a few metres from the main road. 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.

Swimming Pool:

Open from the last Saturday in April until the first Saturday in October, the sunny swimming pool is set in a beautiful secluded panoramic position. It is located on a slightly lower terrace than the house (reachable down 6 steps or walking trought the garden) which is about 40 m away. The rectangular pool measures 5x10 m with a constant depth of 1.40 m. Lined in PVC with a stone border, it has chlorine purification, a metal ladder for access to the water, has a cold outdoor shower, lighting inside the water and in the solarium. The sunbathing area, where you can relax in all tranqullity, is bordered by a discreet hedge and is equipped with sunbeds, pergola and umbrella.

Location and distances

The house lies in the typical landscape of the Val d'Orcia and, thanks to its position in southern Tuscany and very close to the Umbria and Lazio, the location is perfect as the ideal departure point for exploring the most important historical and cultural centres of the two regions. Less than half an hour away are fascinating places of historical, artistic and eno-gastronomic interest, such as Bolsena, Torre Alfina, Acquapendente, Cetona, Città della Pieve, Sarteano and San Casciano dei Bagni which, in addition to being a charming borgo full of monuments and churches, is home to thermal baths (with 45 thermal springs) and a wellness centre among the most renowned in Tuscany. The proximity to the A1 motorway, with the exits of Fabro (38 km for those coming from the south) and Chiusi-Chianciano Terme (37 km for those coming from the north), as well as to the Chiusi railway station on the Rome-Florence line, about 30 minutes from the property, allows short trips to visit places such as Cortona, Montepulciano, Orvieto, Siena etc. The nearest airports are those of Perugia (82 km), Florence (159 km) and Rome (165 km). The property is located in an area of great scenic and naturalistic interest, with the Val d'Orcia Artistic, Natural and Cultural Park (a UNESCO World Heritage Site), Monte Amiata (about 30 km from the summit), the Archaeological Park of Monte Cetona and the Nature Reserve of Monte Rufeno.
