Villa with Private Pool and Country Views - Casa dell'orto (2 Bedrooms, Sleeps 6)

Overview

Property

Updated: 16-Aug-2016
Villa in Baccinello, Nr. Scansano, Grosseto Provence, Tuscany, Italy - Ideal Relaxing Location

The panorama is wonderful, from the seaside to the hills. It is an ideal place where to stay in complete relaxation, but with the opportunity to visit some wonderful places really nearby, Monte Argentario with one of the most beautiful sea in Italy, the Uccellina natural park, Castiglion della Pescaia, Etrurian sites and beautiful art cities of the low Tuscany. 5 minutes drive to the nearest village, Baccinello, 10 minutes from Campagnatico, 30 minutes from Scansano, well known for the famous wine, Morellino di Scansano. There are two villas in the property that we rent, one on the top of the hill and the other one at the basis, but both of them look at the magnificent river Ombrone’s Valley. In the property there are 2 other houses usually not lived and the guardian house. Half way from one villa to the other, there is the swimming pool with an external shower and sun beds for all the clients. Bakery, tobacconist, bar and a little restaurant in the close village of Baccinello.

Peace and Quiet

  • 4 of 5

WE stayed in Casa Grande ,the larger of the two properties as a party of nine in 2008 and returned in 2014 to Casa dell'orto when there was just four of us.

The best feature of this location is the pool, it is almost an infinity pool as there is a great view over the valley below.The setting is very quiet surrounded by vineyards and nearly 500m from the main road.

We visited Sienna, Pitigliano, the salt baths at Saturnia, the abbey at Sant'Antimo and Castiglione della Pescaia on day trips from here. We stayed the previous week in the centre of San Gimignano to contrast this very quiet location. Basic supplies can be found in Baccinello but you won't be very charmed, try Campagnatico as the closest place to make you feel like you are in Tuscany. I feel slightly unfair in making any criticism of a place with so perfect a setting, but it has to be said you pay for the seclusion by having to tackle the 1.5km unsurfaced road leading to the properties, the mechanically sympathetic will be down to first gear in at least two places. The absence of Wifi will also be too much seclusion for some. The larger house, Casa grande, feels the more private as Casa dell'orto is next to, but not overlooked by, the caretakers house. The Casa dell'orto kitchen is a little basic but has recently gained a washing machine which has not yet been noted in the spec.

In conclusion if and when I return to tuscany both properties will be at the top of my list.
