La Fattoria: an owner's palazzo in the historic centre of Sarteano (Siena)

strategically placed near restaurants, the Post Office, thermal swimming pools, shops, and 500 metres from the first farmed fields and the ancient woods which cover Mount Cetona. 1 hour and half from Rome airports along the A1 highway leading north (Florence), or same time by train (Chiusi Chianciano rail station).
This ancient palazzo (part of which dates back to the 15th century) has one entry on the main road of the village, and another from the garden out on the road leading outside of the village. Originally it was a convent then turned into the headquarters of a large agricultural estate, and has recently been partially restructured and entirely redecorated to a very high and beautiful standard.
3 drawing rooms, 6 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms, 1 indoor heated swimming pool, the lemon-house, the oil-mill, and various covered spaces for cars are features of this lovely property, which has been uninterruptedly inhabited by our family for more than 100 years.
° This house was not furnished or restructured for commercial purposes. The fact that it is in the centre of the village, and at the same time also gives out on the outside of it, makes it exceptionally useful as a holiday venue.
It can be rented for weekly periods, bearing in mind the refined quality of the floors, the furnishings, and the different equipment, all of which is used by the family who go there often during the year.

Regulations for Use, which you agree upon when booking

° With the palazzo comes a cleaning service and ‘Tuscan’ cuisine on request; our trusted staff does not sleep in unless expressly requested: if so, it is also possible to have a manservant waiting at table.
° The planning of the menus must be agreed at least 24 hours beforehand
° While the swimming pool equipment is brand new, minor or temporary malfunctioning due to the age of the house (several hundreds of years) is not liable for repayment . All the various equipment (lighting, heating, water systems etc.) is regularly checked and overhauled. We ensure the maximum speed in calling our technicians in case of necessity - note that the house is regularly used by us and that most of the technicians live in the village.
° Payment of the deposit must take place into our UK account, while payment of a sum as guarantee for any minor damage, or in the event of ‘no show’ (in this case the full payment of the stay is required) must be done through Agent’s or Client’s credit card. The un-refundable deposit amounts to half the price of the stay, and any cancellation not notified with at least 30 days notice will allow the owners to charge the full payment for the stay.
