This large stone farmhouse (450 square meters) with private swimming pool is located at the base of Mount Cappuccini between Montepulciano and Chianciano Terme. Mount Cappuccini, Mount Totona and the hills of Montepulciano separate the valleys of Valdichiana and Val d’Orcia. The gated grounds include large lawn areas and are bordered by woods and olive trees. On the hillside above the house is a pool for the exclusive use of guests. Just off the kitchen/dining room there is a large patio area for relaxing and dining al fresco. This is an ideal location for visiting places in Tuscany and nearby Umbria. Guests may opt to spend the day (or two) at the Terme di Montepulciano, a nearby (walking distance) spa/hot springs which offers a vast range of services.

The kitchen has a stovetop with five burners, an oven, a large refrigerator, and two dishwashers. Both the living room and the kitchen/dining room open to the garden.
