    Overview

    Luxury villa with stunning design

    At the end of white unpaved road, in the heart of the Tuscan countryside south of Siena, just outside the charming borgo of Sarteano is La Dimora, an 18th century farmhouse, now converted into a high tech luxury villa of refined quality. 

    Located between Val di Chiana and the Val d’Orcia La Dimora is the perfect location to explore Montepulciano, Chiusi, Pienza, Montalcino, Chianciano Terme, San Casciano dei Bagni and many other places of timeless charm. Sarteano, with its old medieval town walls, is just ten minutes away.

    The respect of Tuscan traditional materials like stone, wood, and terracotta combined with modern design offers guests all they need for a perfect stay. The adjoining annex features a fitness area with a gym and a wellness room, equipped with sauna and Turkish bath.

    The bedrooms are spacious with large windows and private bathrooms. The green space outside (25 acres/10 ha) features a panoramic swimming pool, a tennis court and a bowling green.

    To maintain the taste of authentic tradition La Dimora is committed to organic farming: excellent extra-virgin olive oil, wine, along with other products like Vin Santo (sweet white dessert wine), organic preserves and jams can be tasted in the fabulous multi-function room next to the house. Cook service cooking classes or additional domestic staff are available upon request.

    Activities

    The property's location makes excursions to Siena, Assisi, Orvieto, Perugia, Arezzo and Florence an easy day trip.

    Florence and Rome can be reached by train in one and a half hours from the nearby station Chiusi.

    Sarteano fits our picture of an unspoilt Italian village. The main square has a nice bar where you can sit outside. On the square below, in the afternoon a different bar serves excellent take away pizza.

    Chiusi is one of our favourites because of its unpretentious liveliness. Compared to Montepulciano it is uncontaminated by tourism. Chiusi has a railway station - from here it is a quick ride to the city center of Rome.

    Montepulcino is a graceful Tuscan hill town, best known for its Vino Nobile di Montepulciano, which was being praised by connoisseurs over 200 years ago and can certainly contend with Italy's best today.

    Monticchiello is a pleasant walled village, whose crooked watch-tower is visible from afar. Next to the church is a small shop which sells local linens (towels, bedspreads) and materials in pure linen. They use traditional methods and patterns and the results are extremely attractive.

    In San Quirico d'Orcia make sure you see the Horti Leonini, an early Renaissance garden, as well as the western door in the city wall and the Collegiata (main church).

    Montalcino is beautifully situated on a hill inhabited since Etruscan times, swathed in vineyards and olive groves. It is a quiet, affluent, attractive town with pretty buildings and flower-filled squares, and many shops selling the Brunello di Montalcino.

    Pienza, the unfinished "utopian” city, was commissioned by Pope Pius II in 1459. In just three years the cathedral, the papal and bishop’s palaces and the central part of the town were completed, but the extensive project ended abruptly when Pius died only two years after the consacration of the cathedral.

    Monte Oliveto Maggiore: This abbey was founded by three Sienese noblemen who left the city to live a life dedicated to prayer, religion, etc. and who founded the Olivetan order – an off-shoot of the Benedictines. The most important thing to see at this still active and working Monastery is the cycle of frescoes that decorate the monumental cloister. They describe the live of Saint Benedict and were painted by Signorelli and Sodoma. There are also some beautiful marquetry stalls in the church itself.  It is a very magical and serene place set in the midst of exceptionally beautiful countryside. It is home to a dozen monks who specialize in restoring old books, and make wine, honey and olive oil.

    Sant’Anna in Camprena is a rambling monastery on the road between Pienza and San Quirico d’Orcia. A very romantic setting which served as location for the film The English Patient. In the refectory there is a fresco by the renaissance painter Giovanni Antonio Bazzi, known as Il Sodoma.

    Sant'Antimo is surely one of the loveliest Romanesque buildings in all of Italy. It is hard to imagine a more sympathetic combination of architectural grace and natural setting. Originally founded by Charlemagne in 800, the abbey was once home to a prominent Benedictine community. Creamy stone bricks, luminous Volterran alabaster, playful carvings and frescoes of animals give it a peculiarly sunny air. A group of French Cistercian monks now runs the abbey, celebrating Mass with Gregorian chants several times a day.

    The landscape in this region of Tuscany is spectacular: The Crete Senesi are the eroded clay hills in the Orcia valley. These strange, pale, barren looking slopes, with their bare cliffs, broken gullies and white Jurassic limestone, look altogehter more lunar than terrestial.

    Tuscany is famous for its Hot springs, belonging to a geothermical system that more or less encircles Monte Amiata: the most spectacular is Saturnia in the south west of the region. Steaming water collects in a number of white limestone basins - a rare natural spectacle and great fun to bathe in! Swimming possible both in the natural basins and in smart thermal baths. Saturnia offers a wide range of comforts and even a sauna.
    Close to the property is Bagno Vignoni which has been popular since Etruscan times. St. Catherine of Siena is said to have appreciated its thearpeutic qualities, as is Lorenzo the Magnificent, whose family built the splendid arcaded pool - a kind of flooded, bubbling piazza, famously used by Tarkowsky for some of the more surreal passages of his film Nolstalgia. Not far from this antique piazza there is a hotel with a lovely open air swimming pool, fed from hot springs. This is also available to external guests.
    Bagni San Filippo may go into the books as the world's smallest thermal spa - a telephone booth, a few old houses, outdoor spring in the middle of the woods with glistening limestone formations and one small hotel with a public pool.
    Just 12 km from the property you will find the thermal spa Terme di Chianciano with a highly modern health and thermal centre. Those wanting to combine holidays with a wellness break can enjoy fango baths, cosmetic and therapeutic treatments, solarium, massages and hydromassages. 
    In San Casciano dei Bagni, 22 km away, a few years ago a Medicivilla was converted into a luxury spa center. The view from the pool to the Orcia valley is breathtaking.

    Outlet: Fashion addicts can splurge out at the famous Prada factory outlet, which lies on to road to Florence.
