The Val d’Orcia is a wonderful area, due to the protection of the natural beauty of its enchanting landscape so much so that it is recognized to its artistic heritage, and for these reasons recognized as a Unesco World Heritage Site. It is in this marvelous natural context that Faggeto estate shines. This former convent was recently transformed into a villa of high standard and great charm.
A path lined with old cypress trees leads up to the villa, which is completely fenced and where the noises of the modern world cannot be heard, but where you are simply surrounded by gently rolling green hills and where a real sense of peace and quiet reigns supreme.
The villa offers every comfort: from the pool and the carpet-surfaced tennis court, to the double pool house, complete with sauna and shower and below the pool. All the bedrooms, tastefully decorated and boasting quality linens and towels, come with their own private bathrooms, finished in travertine and local terracota tiles.
This hilly part of south-eastern Tuscany is also famous for its beneficial thermal baths. San Casciano dei Bagni offers a fabulous spa and thermal pools. Cetona is an enchanting Tuscan town with a couple of well-known restaurants and the weekly market well worth a visit. This is the real Tuscan countryside!
