Farmhouse near Montepulciano to rent - Set at the heart of the Tuscan rolling countryside near Montepulciano, among olive groves and vineyards, Villa Gaetano is a beautifully restored country villa close to many of Tuscany's most beautiful towns.
This charming Italian property has been carefully restored by the owner as a fine example of Tuscan rural 18th century style. Many original features have been preserved within the property including cotto tiled floors in the distinct ochre colour of the Valdorcia area, heavy wooden beams and a large open fireplace.

Villa Gaetana is an ideal base if you're looking for a relaxing holiday right in the heart of Tuscany: you're convenient for the village of Montefollonico, which has a very authentic Tuscan feel about it, as well as to the wonderful hilltop towns of Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino where you'll find a good choice of restaurants and pavement cafés: this is wine country so there will be plenty of opportunity to sample some of the excellent Chiantis the region is well known for. The spas at Chianciano Terme slightly further south are the place to go if you want some serious relaxation, and don't forget that you are close to the stunningly beautiful landscapes of the Valdichiana and Val d'Orcia.
