Casa del Tramonto (House of the Sunset)
Located in an ideal position for visiting all the top destinations in Tuscany, in a tranquil position just 15 minutes from the main A1-Rome Florence autoroute. Arezzo, Siena, Florence, San Gimignano, Val D’Orcia, Montepulciano, Montalcino, Cortona, Castiglione del Lago, Monte San Savino, are all within easy driving distance.
The apartments are situated on a hillside with wonderful views over the Tuscan hills. The building itself is reported to be a monastery, dating from the 14th century, and has been restored using the original stone in the typical style of the region. The tiny hamlet where Casa del Tramonto is located, is just 3 miles from the ancient walled town of Civitella in Val di Chiana.
Swimming pool, 6m x 12m is located in a breathtaking position above the olive terraces, which stretch down the hillside. The pool is open from May until October. The swimming pool terrace also has an outdoor eating area with tables and chairs, as well as sun loungers and covered pergola for shade. On a promontory above the pool under the olive trees is the Lavender Terrace with seating, so there is plenty of space to spread out. Our vineyard runs alongside a tranquil lane planted with cypress trees. From the upper terraces, there are several natural viewpoints overlooking the valley, from which you can read, picnic and enjoy the most stunning vistas. As its name implies, we have the wonderful sunsets over the rolling distant hills of Tuscany.
On the way to the pool you will find the lavender terrace. It is in a great position amongst the olive trees and overlooking the pool. While away the time watching the butterflies and countless little bees collecting the nectar from the sweet smelling lavender flowers.
