Chianciano Terme (Val d'Orcia)
Monteaperto is surrounded by woods and fields, with spectacular views of the surrounding countryside and of Castelluccio, a medieval castle also on the property. Its architecture is in typical Tuscan style, proportionate and spacious, built around a central courtyard which provides delightful privacy among a profusion of flowers. This is an ideal spot for outdoor dining during the spring and fall months.
The ground floor - originally stables and storage rooms - have been turned into a most attractive open plan kitchen/dining room, while the two ground floor bedrooms open onto the courtyard.
Benedetta Origo originally restored this house for herself and her family, and it is therefore furnished with lovely antique furniture, many books, local pottery, terracotta floors and ancient stone fireplaces.
There is a large new pool, 12 x 6 m, on a terrace just below the house, that enjoys a wonderful view of the pines and cypresses of La Foce and the Amiata mountain beyond. It is protected by a wooden gate that makes the garden safe for small children.
The garden offers several different spaces for different moments of the day: two outside dining areas, a barbecue terrace under old oak trees, and many ideal spots for reading and enjoying the view. Beautiful walks into the surrounding countryside can be taken directly from the property.
