The Podere Cunina farmhouse and Myrtus apartment is just outside of Buonconvento, to the south of Siena, in the Crete Senesi right along the border with the Val d'Orcia region. The main farmhouse has 7 other independent apartments, with Myrtus being the only one set off by itself offering more privacy, its own terrace and open view of the hillside. Guests share the outdoor salt water pool that enjoys panoramic and breathaking views of the surrounding Tuscan countryside.
The entire property was renovated to maintain the farmhouse's rustic country style with the advantage of modern technological innovations: air conditioning, floor heating, solar panels for warm water and water purification systems that permit reusing water for the gardens and lawn. All of the apartments have free Wi-fi as does the pool area.
Your Special View
The surrounding countryside has Montalcino sitting on a hill nearby, the Monte Amiata vulcanic mountain further in the background and the Crete Senesi and Val d'Orcia hills all around in every direction.
Myrtus is a spacious studio apartment with a kitchenette and bathroom. The sitting area has a large window right in front that offers the best view at sunset even from indoors, while the patio terrace has a dining table, chairs and sun umbrella perfect for outdoor dining.
The farm is dedicated to producing organic extra virgin olive oil, saffron and honey, directly produced by the Freddi family. Marcello is also a trained chef and offers cooking lessons on request. The family loves plants and grows a large vegetable garden where guests can generously harvest and use for meals at their apartment.
The Crete Senesi, sitting between Siena and the Valdorcia
Myrtus at Podere Cunina is just outside the small medieval town of Buonconvento in the gorgeous Crete Senesi area found between Siena and the Valdorcia. The farmhouse is located within a natural park where protected local fauna is often spotted, such as deer.
The Crete Senesi are a splendid hilly clay area to the south of Siena. The landscape with its striking colors is among the most photographed in Tuscany and Italy. The area is dotted with abbeys, small parish churches, thermal baths, caves and other places that are awaiting to be explored.
The farm is just 30 km from Siena and a few kilometers from Pienza, Montalcino, San Quirico d'Orcia and the most scenic towns of the Valdorcia, making it the perfect base from which to explore all of southern Tuscany. You can also do day trips further afield to Florence or Pisa.
