The Experience

Dog, horse, hens, donkey, three little children and Fabio and Suzanne: all live in harmony at this Tuscan ‘casale’. Follonico sits in a bucolic valley surrounded by grassy garden and some of the most beautiful scenery in Italy, and gazes up to Montepulciano. Weathered old doors have been kept and used as shutters, an old jug stuffed with flowers sits in a niche, agrarian implements are propped against walls. It is a lesson to all, in how to restore a property so it doesn’t look restored. The living space where you breakfast on fruits, frittatas and homemade breads is all you’d hope for: rustic beams and worn terracotta, a great fireplace hung with chestnut roasting pans, a white sofa splashed with cushions, books piled on a reclaimed table. Your Italian-Dutch hosts – relaxed, welcoming and in love with this region – have created four beautiful suites in the house and two in an outbuilding: big, simple, charming, with chunky beds on pale stone floors, lights recessed in bare plaster walls, delicious mattresses and a choice of pillows, and retro objects to feast the eyes on. Bathrooms are bliss. Inspirational.

The neighbourhood

Local points of interest from Fabio Firli

  • Lucignano d’Asso: a gem in an impressive landscape. An almost deserted village, preserved by one owner. A rarity in such a popular territory.
  • San’Antimo: Arguably the most beautiful Abbey in the Siena Province. A few km from Montalcino, it’s the perfect destination to enjoy great wine and listen to Gregorian Chants.
  • Castiglioncello sul Tirnoro: the best view of the whole Val d’Orcia. A tiny village, perched almost 700 metres high, a few km from the La Foce resort.
  • San Filippo Baths: natural hot springs in the nearby forest, at the foot of Mount Amiata - for those who want a more authentic experience than the typical swimming-pool baths.
  • Simply spend your time at Follonico, without running behind things and driving like crazy to visit places. Just relax and look around you to see the daily life around the house. you will not be disappointed
  • From 2019 we will have a lovely yet well integrated salt water infinity pool. take it easy and enjoy it while spending your time at Follonico
