This is a beautiful villa in the heart of the Val d’Orcia, south of south of Siena. Surrounded by the area's typical rolling hills, this house, once a typical Tuscan farmhouse, has generous grounds brimming with fragrant herbs and wildflowers furnished with plenty of spaces to relax, eat, and read, as well as a generously sized swimming pool.

Around Villa Nuoto

Villa Nuoto is set amidst the breathtaking green landscapes of the historic Val d'Orcia region, just a short seven-minute drive from Pienza, renowned as the "quintessence of Renaissance urbanism."

Pienza's remarkable transformation was masterminded by the Renaissance humanist Aeneas Silvius Piccolomini, who later ascended to become Pope. Under his vision, the entire village was meticulously reconstructed to embody the ideals of Renaissance town planning. Originally conceived as a retreat from Rome, Pienza stands as a pioneering example of the application of humanist urban planning principles, laying the foundation for subsequent innovations in urban design adopted by other Italian towns and cities and eventually spreading to various centers across Europe.

In less than a half-hour drive from the villa, you can explore the charming towns of Bagno Vignoni, S. Quirico d’Orcia, Montepulciano, and Chianciano Terme. Moreover, within an hour's drive, you'll have the opportunity to visit the famous attractions of Siena. Alternatively, if you prefer to savour the splendid views of Val d’Orcia while traveling by train, a 40-minute drive will take you to the Chiusi rail station, offering daily trips to Florence or Rome.

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.
