This rental farmhouse is wonderful for a family holiday and located between Pienza (where the english patient was filmed) and San Quirico (a lovely historic town in perfect condition with many shops) (5kms from each town). There is also a small village at 1.5 kms with a bar, Pizzeria and small goods.

The area is also a gastronomic heaven producing cheeses (famous pecorino cheeses of Pienza), fresh handmade pasta, some of the best and most noted wines of Italy, truffles, the famous Porcini mushrooms, wild boar, safron, honey and the Chianina meat. The locals boast a love of their land; they are very hospitable, friendly and relaxed. The typically Tuscan villages are charming, characteristic and full of history and culture. Small shops with local produce and artifacts line the shaded stone lined streets. For the wine lovers one can sit outside and taste the famous wines of the region at many of the enotecas and bars.
