Country cottage in Tuscany sleeping 4 - Orcio is located mid-way between Florence and Siena deep in Chianti countryside. This carefully restored, stone-built apartment is part of a larger building housing two other apartments, each with independent entrance and grounds. Surrounded by flowering hedges and stone walls, Orcio is located on a larger estate with some other apartments and a private villa, also featured by Quality Villas.
Terracotta paths lead through the well maintained gardens to each individual residence, whilst every property has its own small garden and patio area. There are the wider grounds of the estate itself to explore, and a good size communal swimming pool at guests' disposal. Orcio is ideal for a small family wishing to experience this charming part of Tuscany. The decor is of a high standard throughout with original colour schemes, antique furniture and of course modern amenities.
The estate office can arrange a host of extra services including airport transfers, bike tours, cooking lessons, booking of museum and event tickets and chef services. Within one or two kilometres of the estate there are tennis courts, horse riding stables, restaurants and banks. And of course the beautiful cities of Florence and Siena are waiting to be explored from this country cottage in Tuscany.
“This is simple and comfortable accommodation in the very heart of Italy. You have your own patio and garden area by your own private house, set in the midst of well-maintained communal gardens. The communal pool is carefully situated so that it is very easy to stroll across the lawns to, yet not close enough to intrude. A great place to stay if you want to be within easy driving distance of some of Italy's most famous towns and cities.”
