Basic information

Available from January to December. Location Countryside - Sleeps 8 - Bedrooms 0 - Bathrooms 5 - Pool

Il Leccio, “The Evergreen Oak” is a fine, stone-walled Sienese country house, eight miles south of Siena and a 45 minute drive or less from the fascinating medieval sights of San Galgano, Monteoliveto, Pienza, San Quirico, San Gimignano and Volterra.

This property enjoys a truly exceptional setting. Its estate skirts the open edge of a thick wood that rises up in the vicinity of a famous 17th-century mansion that was once the private residence of the Chigi family and Pope Alexander VII.
Its fabulous grounds draw botanical experts and garden lovers from all over the world. A further walk to the crest of the hill above this villa provides stunning views of the beautiful Tuscan landscape.
Il Leccio, which consists of a main house and annexe, commands its own private five-acre estate. This contains an attractively designed swimming-pool area (on a lower level) surrounded by a fragrant, well tended garden with cypress trees and olive groves. The estate also has its own hard-surface tennis court.
