IL CASALE DI MANUELE 8

Toscana - Siena - MONTEPULCIANO

Description:

RECEPTIVE STRUCTURE (CIR CODE: 052015AAT0145). Il Casale di Manuele lies in an enchanting hillside location, less than two kilometres from the centre of Montepulciano, one of the most enchanting Renaissance borghi south of Siena, between the flourishing Valdichiana and the unmistakable Val d'Orcia, an obligatory stop for every traveller in search of artistic masterpieces and internationally-famous food and wine excellences. The complex is made up of two exposed-stone buildings which have been transformed from simple agricultural outbuildings into refined country houses, thanks to the use of authentic materials of the local artisan tradition, to which have been added all mod cons to guarantee a relaxing stay with every comfort. Indoors, wide arches delimit the spacious living area, with a cosy sitting room with original fireplace next to a rustic kitchen with central island. All the rooms are air-conditioned and every bedroom has a private bathroom. Outdoors the magnificent view from the garden and panoramic swimming pool sweeps over the green valley covered with woods and over the villages of the Valdichiana up to Cortona. We are in an area that gathers the best of the excellences that distinguish the renowned southern province of Siena, where you are spoilt for choice among the wonders that can be easily reached and explored from this privileged position, the famous borghi of the surroundings, such as Pienza and Montalcino, and the art towns of Tuscany and neighbouring Umbria. Finally, not to be missed is a visit to the extraordinary spa resorts in the immediate vicinity (Montepulciano, San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano), to immerse yourself in the salubrious and regenerating waters dedicated to well-being. Please Note: when the property is rented in this solution no other guests will be present on site.

IL CASALE DI MANUELE HAS BEEN SUBJECTED TO A CHECK-UP BY A TECHNICAL RESPONSIBLE BEFORE THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON, TO ENSURE CONSISTENCY OF THE DESCRIPTION, ACCESSORIES LISTED ON THIS PAGE AND THEIR PRESENT STATE OF OPERATION/MAINTENANCE, TO GUARANTEE QUALITY, CLEANLINESS AND COMFORTS TO ALL CLIENTS WHO WILL STAY HERE.

Interior:

The property consists of a main house and an annex about 15 m away. MAIN HOUSE. Constructed on terraced terrain, allowing outside access from both the ground floor and the first floor levels. The main entrance is on the ground floor which consists of a large living area where the various rooms are connected by large arches to form a single open-plan space comprising the area with sofas, fireplace and satellite TV, the kitchen and the dining room which leads directly out to the outdoor dining area. The floor is completed by a bathroom with shower and the laundry. The internal staircase goes up to the first floor consisting of a double bedroom (with joinable beds) with ensuite bathroom with shower and direct access to the portico, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms with shower, one of which is ensuite. ANNEX. Located at the same level as the first floor of the main house and reached up a short flight of steps. The ground floor is composed of a living area with sitting room and foldaway kitchen and one double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower.

Park:

The buildings are surrounded by 5 hectares of terrain, distributed among olive grove, orchard and woodland; the garden is about 700 sq m and extends over the various terraces, mainly covered with lawns, bushes of herbs such as lavender, sage and rosemary, olive trees and ornamental plants. On one side of the main house, in front of the living room French window, is an outdoor dining area protected by a large portico and completed by a stone barbecue. The adjacent portico contains a seating area with sofas and tables. An additional portico, covered with jasmine, is located on the terracing at the first floor level, in front of the French window of one of the first floor bedrooms. Just past the entrance gate is a parking area, a few steps from the entrances to both houses. 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:

The south-facing swimming pool is set in the most panoramic area of the property, on terracing at a higher level than the houses from which it is reached up a few flights of steps and then along a stone path. Rectangular with one infinity side, it measures 6 x 12 m with the depth ranging from 1.15 to 1.40 m. Lined in PVC and bordered by travertine slabs that give way to a green lawn, it has five large steps for access to the water in one corner, chlorine purification and internal lights; there is also lighting in the surrounding area.

TO DO

Location and distances


The villa is just a couple of kilometres away from the small Renaissance town of Montepulciano, known principally for its imposing Renaissance buildings, for the elegant beauty of its churches and for the “Vino Nobile”, one of the most internationally famous wines of Tuscany. The strategic position of Montepulciano, a spur 605 metres above sea level between the Val d’Orcia and the Val di Chiana, makes this property the ideal departure point for visiting the beauties of Tuscany. The A1 motorway exit Chiusi/Chianciano Terme is only 20 kilometres away and so cities like Florence, Siena, Orvieto and Rome can be easily reached. The motorway is not needed to visit the nearby villages of Bagno Vignoni, Pienza, Montalcino, Cortona, Sarteano. The best served and most important railway station is that of Chiusi which is 20 kilometres away.

Has the property matched your expectations?
The property is beautiful and relaxing with incredible views of the valley. Although we were a 20 min walk to Montepulciano, the property felt very connected to nature with birds singing all morning long. The property experience is even better than the beautiful pictures on the website. Manuele is an exceptional host. Very responsive. He kept the property looking great and was attentive to our questions about the property and any needs we had during our stay. One of our best experiences yet wit
