The property is located close to Buonconvento, in the heart of a superb geographical area bordering on the town of Siena, called the Crete Senesi, including the villages of Montisi, San Giovanni d'Asso, Trequanda, Monteroni d'Arbia and Rapolano Terme, characterized by the peculiar morphology of the territory, composed of clay hills and the so-called biancane which give the clay its typical cuneiform relief and light colour. The area of the Crete represents an uncontaminated oasis of picturesque and ever-changing landscapes, in which the territory and the environment have, over time, maintained a rare integrity and purity, beloved by hikers, cyclists and motorcyclists. Its location allows you to easily reach some of the most fascinating places of the bordering Val d'Orcia. Just 22 km away is Montalcino while in the range of a few kilometres, along panoramic roads, are San Quirico D'Orcia, Pienza, Montepulciano, Bagno Vignoni with their rich artistic, cultural and food and wine heritage. About 8 km from the property is the borgo of Buonconvento with the beauty and charm of an old village enclosed by a brick town wall and accessible through two imposing gates into the historic centre; strolling along the narrow streets you will find shops of typical products, great restaurants and cafés. The village has a supermarket, a bus stop, a railway station (for Siena) and, on Saturday morning, a lively open-air market.
