Additional Location Information

The property is located just a few kilometers from the most famous art heritage cities of central-Italy, with a particularly high concentration of historical assets and local traditions, as Siena, Arezzo and Perugia. Cortona, Montepulciano, Pienza and the many medieval villages are also the testimony of a grand past that still deeply characterizes the entire area. Part of the Val di Chiana was already largely populated since Etruscan leaving numerous archaeological areas and finds today visible in the local museums. A few kilometers from the apartment there are thermal baths where you can receive (by appointment) treatments and massages.

Sinalunga is a hill-town with Etruscan origins where farming is still one of the most important sources of income along with flourishing small industries. Numerous hotels and farms attract tourists from all over the world. During your stay in the splendid countryside around Sinalunga, don't miss a visit to the Teatro (Theatre), built in the 18th Century and named after famous local musician, Ciro Pinsuti. Also worth seeing are the coats of arms of the Podesta' on the walls of the 15th Century Palazzo Pretorio.
Sinalunga boasts several churches of great importance including the 17th Century Collegiate Church of San Martino with works by Girolamo del Pacchia, the 18th Century Church of Santa Croce, and Santa Lucia. On the hill at Poggio Baldino just outside the town you will find the Convent of San Bernardino with works by various 16th Century artists. On the road to Torrita di Siena stands the town's oldest church, the Romanesque parish church of San Pietro ad Mensulas, with three naves. It contains two interesting burial urns dating back to Roman times. Once a centre of agriculture and furniture-making, today there are many small factories and small businesses. The most important industries are brick and tile-making, ceramics and clay pots.Various farms in the area produce the famous Chianina cattle. Sinalunga is an excellent tourist centre, with numerous historic attractions, unspoilt countryside and an excellent road and rail network which places it at the centre of communications for the whole of Italy.
