Podere Santa Cristina is a splendid, typically Tuscan farmhouse from the 1700s located in Civitella in the Val di Chiana, in a strategic position to venture among the magnificent Tuscan cities of art.
Renovated in 2012, it offers every type of comfort respecting the original architecture (recognized historical building).
Santa Cristina, the adjacent private church (from which the whole farm takes its name) was also restored in 2012, bringing to light a fresco dating back to the 1400s.
The farmhouse, surrounded by a splendid garden of 3 hectares completely fenced and by about 200 olive trees (of which you can taste strictly BIO oil) is placed on the top of a hill overlooking the Val di Chiana giving breathtaking views and sunsets.
The farm is spread over 2 levels.
On the ground floor large fully equipped kitchen (fridge with freezer, stove, oven, microwave, coffee machine, dishwasher, utensils, pots / pans, glasses, etc.) with dining room with 12-person table, dining room double bed, bathroom and laundry room with washer and dryer.
The kitchen overlooks a fresh pergola with a table and chairs for 8 people.
On the first floor living room with splendid stone fireplace and satellite TV, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and living room with kitchenette.
Immersed in the quiet of the garden is the private 50 sq m swimming pool (open from 15/06 to 15/09).
Deck chairs and sun loungers offer the right comfort.
Access to the property, fenced, is private and privacy is guaranteed.
The house is ideal for families, with even small children (cot and high chair available). Dogs are welcome.
Covered parking space
The house borders the owners' farm which runs a farm (Azienda Agricola Macchi Cassia) which produces excellent organic oil 500 meters away. The two properties are however separated by a fence.
It is ideal for those who want to spend a holiday among the olive trees a few kilometers from important cultural and artistic attractions.
