Perks for the Parents

This apartment in an ancient Tuscan farming estate, 45 minutes south of Siena, has a shared pool, sun-dappled play area and is well located for exploring Tuscany. A homemade breakfast is included and during the summer, guests are offered a Sunday evening dinner with the opportunity to taste some local products (wine, olive oil, cheese and salami). Tuscan cooking lessons can be arranged on Friday afternoons in summer, followed by a dinner with food cooked together, for an extra fee. The farm itself produces wines and extra virgin olive oil and is set of 400ha of vineyards, olive groves and pastures. Nearby towns to visit include Pienza, Montepulciano, Cortona, Monte Oliveto Maggiore, Siena and many others.

Why Kids Love it

This calm rural estate is great for kids - it is safe, so they can happily explore the area, and there is a large swimming pool and play area under the trees in the grounds. A crib, high chair, and a baby bath can be provided on request. It is possible to organize cooking lessons for kids - please ask for further details. The apartment is on 1 level, making it easy for younger children, and 1 bedroom is set up with 2 twin beds and is ideal for children. Siena is a fun day trip for kids, with gelato, playgrounds and a bell tower to climb.

Things to Know

There may be some steps and areas outside the property where children could fall - younger children may need supervision. The pool is gated and set away from the main house. The apartment is 1 of a collection of 4 in the historic farm estate and they can be booked in tandem for a maximum of 15 guests. Pets are welcome on consultation. Check in is in the afternoon and check out is before 11am; please arrange late check out or early check with the host if necessary. WiFi available.

About the Location

The apartment is in a historic estate in the countryside just under an hour south of Siena, near to Montepulciano in the Val d’Orcia. It is a very rural area and car rental is essential. The town of Trequanda is a few kilometres away and in 15 minutes you can reach Monte Oliveto Maggiore and S. Giovanni d'Asso, where an exhibition of white truffles take place each year. Bikes can be rented. There are wonderful cycle routes nearby and there is horseback riding in the neighborhood. Siena Airport is 1 hour’s drive away; Florence airport is 1 hour 25 minutes away.

Accommodation Details

This 1-floor apartment is in a larger historic estate building and has a separate entrance. It is on the ground floor and has 2 double bedrooms, 1 with twin beds, 1 with a kingsize bed, 2 bathrooms and a living room with kitchenette. Outside there is a patio with table and chairs for outdoor dining, plus a children’s play area in an Italian grove and a pool set away from the house.

Style Notes

Traditional Tuscan. The house is in a historic estate with honey stone buildings, cypress trees visible on hilltops and in the distance, and beautiful landscaping. It is romantic and includes plenty of traditional Tuscan features. Interiors have terracotta tiled flooring, wood-beamed ceilings and relatively simple fixtures and fittings, from wooden dining tables to rustic stencilling on the walls.

Tuscany, Italy

Olive groves, vineyards and rolling hills

This region of central Italy is as picture-perfect as you’ve heard: all rolling countryside, cypress trees, hazy views and historic stone villages. For those too young to enjoy wine, olive oil and relaxing, there are water parks, child-friendly heritage sites and theme parks, meadows and woods to play in, and donkeys to befriend. Hire a car and explore the surrounding area, buy fresh pasta to cook at home later, or spend afternoons in vineyards deciding which variety of Chianti you like the best.
