About the Owner
Activity and Interests
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 each 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.
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.
