3BR Farmhouse Vacation Rental in Siena, Tuscany

Vacation Rentals

Updated on Jul 17, 2019

Traditional Tuscan farmhouse with stunning views

Located in: Siena
This beautifully renovated farmhouse is only 10 minutes’ drive from the heart of Siena. Belvedere (lit: beautiful view) is situated on a remote hilltop with breathtaking views of the Tuscan countryside with vineyards and olive trees in the immediate vicinity and mountain / forest views in the distance. It’s near enough for ready access to Siena yet remote enough for your private piece of Tuscan tranquility. The house has been split into two different areas; the upper floor (accessible by a short stair case) is where you will be staying. The ground floor of the farmhouse (also a vacation rental) has completely separate entrance and has no access to the upper floor.

Siena is one of the most beautiful and best preserved medieval cities in Europe with an absolutely stunning cathedral Il Duomo. The hospital of Santa Maria della Scala is said to be the oldest hospital in the world. The Piazza del Campo is a beautiful sight any day of the year but transforms to its medieval state for the famous Palio di Siena every 2nd of July & 16th August. Each contrada or section of the city battles it out for the famous bareback horserace around city centre.

Belvedere is also a fantastic location to base yourself for day trips to Florence and many other towns dotted around Tuscany such as San Gimignano, Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. A trip to the abbey Monte Oliveto Maggiore for evening vespers followed by dinner in the quaint walled village of Buonconvento is highly recommended. Further afield are classic medieval towns such as Cortona, Perugia and Assisi and to the west, the Isle of Elba is a day or overnight trip.

Alternatively you can escape for days on end with only a few minutes’ drive or a 15 minute walk to the local shops for a coffee, an ATM or to top up the essentials – some local bread & milk, a bottle of Chianti, some fresh pasta or an array of regional cheeses. There are plenty of supermarkets only a short drive away if you are really stocking up or if you don’t feel like cooking there are many options for dining in the surrounding Colonna San Marco, San Rocco, Costalpino or in Downtown Siena.

Closer to home, points of interest are Certano (the estate villa), where you can pick up a bottle of Chianti produced in the surrounding vineyard and the monastry – Eremo di Lecceto where you can attend evening vespers.

Traditional Tuscan architecture, characterized by terracotta floors & exposed wooden beams is common throughout, including the three spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathroom. A dining table that seats 10 will be the centre of some great feasts and memories or you can choose to eat around the more cosy kitchen table. The kitchen is fully equipped with pots and pans, glassware & ceramics, enabling you to cook up your own meals if you so desire.

Come and enjoy the 'Dolce far niente' - the sweetness of doing nothing by grabbing a book, cooking up a meal & playing some chess or cards. Alternatively use this as a base for countless day trips to explore Tuscany & beyond.
