Activity and Interests

Country House

The recently restored stone house is part of Il Pero, a historic estate dating back to the middle

ages, being a religious hospice for pilgrims on the route to Santa Caterina of Siena. Now a private

estate producing oil, wine and fresh seasonable organically grown vegetables, it still keeps an aura

of total peace and rest. Totally isolated, off the main routes, yet near the main places of cultural interest, not mentioning near the wine routes and the thermal resorts of the area. The house share a private pool and has a covered pergola to enjoy alfresco evenings. Walking routes within the estate offer amazing resting views of the nature around. Birdwatching and fishing available. The interior of the house has been tastefully decorated with restored old furniture, keeping the old doors, tiles and stones where possible. The house provides modern facilities keeping a rustic feeling. The near villages of Radicofani and Contignano offer daily grocery shopping.

Guest comments

The most common comment has been: 'how quiet and peaceful it is here!'. 'You can almost hear silence' one guest commented. Guests have generally been happy to stay, but mostly have been so busy visiting the nearby places of interest. They loved our wine and oil production.


Contignano and Radicofani are 8km and 10km away, driving there is 10/13 mins and provides daily grocery, a newsagent, cashpoint and bank, petrol station (Contignano only), utility shop, excellent butchery and cheese shop, local pub and restaurants.

Montepulciano is 20 mins; Pienza 20 mins; San Casciano dei Bagni and Cetona both 25/30 mins; Bagno

Vignoni 20 mins; Montalcino 35 mins; Chiusi 35 mins (train station and large supermarket); Chianciano 25 mins; Siena is 1.15 mins. All destinations require driving.


The Tuscan coast is reachable in 1.30 mins driving. Either Grosseto or the Argentario are reachable

at the same time.


45 mins away driving (50 km) from us is Golf Club Lamborghini Panicale. Always open.

Local fairs are present all year long, especially during the summer.
