Montepulciano, a famous Tuscan town renowned for its wine, is close by and the rest of Tuscany and Umbria is easily explored from this tranquil location.
This beautiful wine producing estate consists of an 18th Century farmhouse and two separate buildings which have been beautifully restored to their former glory and cleverly converted into holiday accommodation.
