Overview

A well-tended and romantic 60 acres parkland surrounds the villa, including also a garden which is home to a wonderful swimming pool. The property features three levels, each of them delightfully decorated using high-quality finishing and upscale furniture. Period and architectural features of the 1800s characterize each floor and alternate with more modern elements: cross vaults, marble fireplaces, marble and fine wide plank wood floors and coffered ceilings richly decorated. Experience the calming aura, the natural beauty, and the attentive service of this glorious villa and you will be glad you chose it!

Painstakingly restored from an 18th century villa by its designer owner, the superb Villa Araldica aims to offer the perfect home to the discerning guests. The villa staff oversees your stay making sure your vacation goes smoothly offering a truly personal and unique service. The nearest town is only few minute drive away with grocery shops, restaurants, pharmacy and emergency services. The Val D’Orcia, where the villa is located, is a UNESCO site due to its cultural richness and natural beauty so you can explore its wonders such as Pienza, Montalcino, Bagno Vignoni, San Casciano dei Bagni, Siena in 60 minute drive, and Florence easily reachable by train from Chiusi station.
