Nice little touches

  • The generous hospitality on this ancient estate is seen even in the details
  • Home-produced wine and olive oil provide tasting opportunities and inspire local wine touring

Good to know

  • This accommodation is entirely on the first floor, accessed by an external staircase and not appropriate for guests with mobility difficulties.
  • The pool may occasionally be shared by another couple; please speak with your agent if you would like to add a supplement to guarantee exclusive use.
  • Please note there is a tourist tax of €1 per person (guests over 14 years old) for the first 15 nights. The tourist tax will be collected in cash on site.

With long panoramas from its pool and dining loggia, this villa is a spacious first-floor apartment in southern Tuscany close to Radicofani and San Casciano dei Bagni, and is a charming spot for a family or couples on holiday together. Set on an ancient agricultural estate producing its own wine and olive oil, the property is in easy reach of historic spa and medieval market towns scattered in the hills of the stunning Val d’Orcia south of Siena.

Hospitality on the estate is born of generous tradition, with fresh flowers, a Tuscan breakfast basket and seasonal garden vegetables all part of the welcome to help visitors feel at home. Add to these touches the silver-green of olive groves and the vines of Sangiovese and Merlot grapes ripening nearby and this Tuscan farm estate is the perfect place to be.


One must climb the external stone staircase to reach the front door, but the rewards are great for having done so. Not only are the views far-reaching and a dappled green, the wide covered landing is furnished as a dining loggia that will be well used for meals al fresco. The door on the landing opens to the large main room that includes a dining area with a table for six and a spacious living room with comfortable sofas under a high-beamed ceiling. Off the dining area is a generous country kitchen with marble counters and a wooden table perfect for informal meals, dinner preparation or an organized cooking class.

Three bedrooms, one double and two that can be set up as doubles or twins on request, are off the living area. With the double bedroom having an ensuite bathroom and each of the twin/doubles accessing its own shower room, this property is especially good for friends on holiday together. Bedrooms feature country antiques and attractive fabrics, while bathrooms are dressed with modern fixtures and touches of marble.

The dining loggia overlooks the private side garden and panoramic swimming pool which is surrounded by sunbeds, hammock-strung olive trees and a loggia providing shade and a fridge for cooling poolside drinks.

“ A great week in the Tuscan countryside ”

We recently spent a week at Aceronina with members of our family, celebrating major birthdays and important anniversaries. We could hardly have chosen a better location! The views go on for ever in several directions, and never failed to delight, even on the day when storm clouds came sweeping in from the south.

The accommodation is spacious and extremely well equipped and comfortable, and the kitchen has everything you could ask for if you want to cook for yourself. However, you would be denying yourself a great deal if you didn’t explore at least some of the fine restaurants to be found in the area. We really enjoyed dinner at Osteria Rinaldi, in Piazze, just 5 minutes down the road, and the carnivores in the group raved about the mixed grill enjoyed at the restaurant at the castle in Radico-fani. However, the highlight was the celebratory dinner prepared and served for us “at home”. We really appreciated all the help received from Invitation to Tuscany in booking the week, and spe-cially in helping organise our special dinner.

Lounging by the pool was an important part of our stay, but there is also a great deal of interest in the surrounding area. A week was way too short a time, but besides Radicofani and Piazze, we were also able to visit San Casciano dei Bagni and Montalcino, (home of the famous Brunello wine, but also home to a very interesting leather goods store). Siena was also within easy reach for a day’s outing.

Altogether it was a wonderful week, and special thanks must go to Olivia, the owner, for providing such comfortable, well equipped surroundings.

“ The villa was even better than expected ”

Our stay at Aceronina was the favorite part of our trip. The villa was even better than expected....Very spacious and lovely...especially the view. We got lost (followed the GPS) on the way and Olivia, the owner came to get us and lead us to the villa. We also had someone recommended by Olivia come in one night to fix a wonderful dinner for us.

Also thanks to Dan of Invitation to Tuscany for all your help. Any time I had questions, they were promptly answered and much help was offered. Would definitely do this again.

Around Aceronina

The farming estate has been in the family of its present owners since the 18th century and it is perhaps in keeping with their historic lineage that the race of cattle they breed are the beautiful white Chianina. Known in Etruscan and Roman times for their strength in ploughing the fields, these cattle are now a feted presence in Tuscan festival processions and prized in restaurants as the source of the famed ‘Fiorentina’ T-bone steak.

Though the estate is surrounded in greenery, there are neighbouring shops and restaurants just five minutes away. Not much further are the enchanting medieval hill towns of San Casciano dei Bagni and Cetona, which eschew the grid in favour of meandering streets towards an imposing fortress or ancient bell tower. An additional reason for visiting San Casciano is one of Italy's best-known spas, the Fonteverde, whose healing springs have drawn people for centuries.

The lively market town of Sarteano nearby throws itself into celebrating its own heritage in a mid-August Saracen Joust and proudly displays the famous Etruscan-age painting 'The Tomb of the Infernal Chariot' in the Civic Museum. But all is not ancient history in this area; there are summer concerts in the gardens of La Foce, home of author Iris Origo, outlet shopping in nearby Chiusi, and wine tasting in Montepulciano, whose 'Vino Nobile' draws connoisseurs to this Renaissance town atop a towering limestone ridge.

Day trips to Arezzo and Orvieto are also quite doable, with the former offering monthly antiquarian fairs and the frescoes of Piero della Francesca and the latter, perched upon a butte of volcanic tufo, known for its magnificent cathedral as well as an engineering masterpiece, the well of San Patrizio, that provided water to a city that sought safety in altitude. After a day of wandering, however, how pleasant to know that a refreshing pool and panoramic dining table await your return.

Worth knowing

Many local administrations now charge a “Tourist Tax” for people staying in rented accommodation and these vary from town to town. The charges are generally per person per night with a maximum number of nights, usually around 5 but sometimes 7, beyond which they will not charge. The charges range between 50 cents to 3 euro. Children are sometimes included, sometimes not and these charges should be collected by the property owners.
