     Description 


Casa della Concie is a charming restored stone house situated in
the "Peschiera" area, on the edge of the rustic medieval village of
Santa Fiora. The property has been recently lovingly restored and
boasts four bedroom (three doubles and one twin) and two bathrooms
(one five-piece and one four-piece) and three reception areas.
There is also a fully equiped kitchen, ready for you to create your
gourmet Italian meals.

It is situated on the edge of the village providing plently of
privacy and stunning views. It has a yard with off-street parking,
a security gate and a wonderful tiled terrace, ideal for enjoying
the morning Tuscan sunshine and perhaps an al fresco breakfast.

In the distant past, the property is believed to have been a leather
tannery and still has a lovely stream flowing along an ancient
acqueduct along the rear perimeter of the garden, (providing a
soothing lullaby to help you sleep at night).

     Attractions 


Santa Fiora is a beautiful midieval hilltop town, rich in history
and charm. It is near to Siena and some of the most famous Tuscan
wine regions, such as Brunello, Montepulciano, Montecucco and
Scansano. The cities of Orvietto and Grosetto are no more than an
hour away. In the vicinity are many charming villages and a wealth
of ancient Etruscan and later historical sites. Santa Fiora is also
surrounded by many thermal spas, including the ancient baths at
Saturnia.

There is never a shortage of ways to spend the days in the area,
from the local colourful markets, to hikes on the many trails of
Monte Amiata, to visits to the val d'Orcia, to swims in the Ocean
(about an hour and 15 minutes away).

You can take a day and enjoy one of the many natural spas in the
area, such as San Casciano dei Bagni, Bagni San Fillipo, Saturnia,
or Bagno Vignoni. At any of these you can enjoy a day at a modern
spa (reservations recommended) having the full treatment, or just go
and splash around the ancient outdoor pools at Saturnia.

There are many ancient hilltop towns in the area, all worth a
visit. Of particular interest is Pienza (home of Pecorino cheese),
Pitigliano, Sorano, San Casciano dei Bagni, and others. Each of
these is unique and features interesting boutiques where you can
acquire Tuscan pottery or hand-made leather goods.

During the months of July and August Santa Fiora hosts an
international music festival, with local, regional and international
musicians and orchestras providing a lively spectacle in many of the
squares and parks in the village. In the autumn the village has a
chestnut festival and of course the surrounding areas provide many
opportunities for witnessing the grape harvest.

Santa Fiora also has much to offer at other times of the year. At
Christmas the village again comes to life with many festivities.
The highlight is the annual "fiacolata" where bonfires blaze in
most squares and one can enjoy many local specialities, including of
course the wines. As well, during the winter months, there is
skiing about 30 minutes away at the top of Monte Amiata.
