Casa Vista

A lovingly restored Tuscan farmhouse with beautiful manicured gardens, set amongst 17 hectares of olive trees in the Unesco World Heritage listed Val d'Orcia.

Tuscany-Southeast/Val D'Orcia Villa 10

Located between Pienza and Montepulciano, Casa Vista enjoys stunning, 270 degree panoramic views of the town of Monticchiello and its surrounding hills, with Radicofani in the distance. The farmhouse wraps around a beautiful parterre garden of lavender with a statue of la bella donna (the beautiful woman) as its centrepiece. Beyond the parterre garden is a flower lined, private sunbathing area that leads to a stunning horizon plunge pool. 

Every room of the villa, including the four spacious bedrooms, boasts spectacular views of the Val d’Orcia valley or gardens. Each bedroom has its own travertine stone en suite bathroom with rain shower and air conditioning so that you can enjoy the all-important modern comforts. 

Stylish and geniuine all at once, this charming Tuscan farmhouse guarantees privacy and the full comfort of a luxury home in the peaceful Tuscan countryside. Interior designed by Tuscan firm, Sestini e Corti, the farmhouse is furnished in an industrial, rustic style drawing on local, reclaimed materials.

Casa Vista is neighboured by the vineyard of Capitoni, a local family who have been making their wonderful Orcia riserva wine for generations. The villa also looks across the valley to the organic farm Podere Il Casale, that produces cheeses, honey, olive oil and wine, amongst other things. 

Each morning, a complimentary international buffet style breakfast is offered. For all other meals, a professional, English speaking Chef is available on request. Menus are suggested by the Chef every day depending on guests’ preferences. Ingredients such as vegetables, olive oil, cheeses and meat are local and mostly produced in the area. The resident Chef also runs Italian cooking classes.

For your convenience, both before and during your vacation, an English speaking concierge is available and will help with organizing your stay by suggesting restaurants, wine tastings and other activities.
