The Perriccio 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 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.
Perriccio, 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.
Ground Floor: The front door of the main house leads into a sitting room, with TV and wide Tuscan fireplace; to the right there is a cosy living room.
From the kitchen further on, a short flight of stairs descends to the dining room whose doors give onto the outside portico – an exquisite spot for al fresco dining - both during the day and on unforgettable summer evenings.
First Floor: Access is up a staircase in the sitting room near the entrance. The first floor contains a further living room with fireplace, and on the right, one double bedroom with a magnificent four-poster bed. There is also an en-suite bathroom with bath. Next-door another bathroom serves one twin bedroom. A second twin bedroom, also with four-poster beds and en-suite bathroom with bath, completes the floor.
Annexe: The annexe has two independent entrances both leading to further accommodation .
On the lower level the fetching rose rooms are equipped with twin beds and an en-suite bathroom with shower while the upper level houses a comfortable double bedroom with en-suite bathroom with shower.
