Welcoming Tuscan Cottage for Two
Bencondito is an inviting Tuscan apartment that's ideal for a couple looking for the allure of the countryside yet still wanting close proximity to a town. This semi-cottage is attached to a larger villa where the friendly, English-speaking owners live with their three daughters. Their family run estate produces Chianti Colli Senesi wine and organic extra virgin olive oil.
French doors lead out onto a private patio and good size lawn area nestled among an olive grove. The patio is well-furnished and thoughtfully covered with a canvas canopy in the summer months. At the other end of the grounds is a large pool that's shared with the owners' family. From a portion of the pool's sun deck, there are pleasant views spanning out over the countryside. The owner's two friendly dogs and two sleepy cats live on the grounds, and three purebred horses occupy the stable 100 yards away.
Set on two levels, Bencondito is a charming Tuscan getaway with beamed ceilings, stone walls and terracotta floors. Modern comforts included in the price of this non-smoking apartment are: an air conditioned bedroom, a laptop with Wi-Fi, satellite TV with English language movie channels and two mountain bikes.
Medieval Chianciano with its fortress walls still intact is less than five minutes away by car and is set beside the modern town of Chianciano Terme with more shops and restaurants. Terme refers to the medicinal thermal spas in this area, known for its curative water since Roman times. The vineyards of Montepulciano are within a 20 minute drive along with the town of Chiusi that has a main line train station offering 90 minute service to Rome or Florence a few times per day; Cetona or Pienza: 25; Cittą della Pieve: 30; Castiglione del Lago (Lake Trasimeno): 40; Cortona or Orvieto: 45; Montalcino, Siena or Perugia: 60; Florence, Assisi, Todi or Gaiole in Chianti: 90; Rome, Lucca or Pisa: 2 hours.
