With ancient woodland to one side and views of the enchanting Val d’Orcia to the other side, Celestial Rose is in a fantastic location. Just 3km away from the nearest amenities and with a wide range of villages and towns within easy reach, this is the perfect place for a holiday in Tuscany. 

As you approach the villa through the 9 acres of lush grounds, you will spot the red-hued house with traditional terracotta roof tiles, surrounded by lawns and established trees. Your neighbours are the local animals such as deer, wild boar, cuckoos, and hares that thrive in this rural landscape.   

Entering the home, the farmhouse exterior gives way to an open-plan, modern interior. The walls of the vast living spaces are hung with unique artworks from a gallery owned by the homeowners, and the unique furnishings have been custom-made to work in harmony with these pieces. The 80 square-meter living room is the heart of the home, where your group can come together and chat over a bottle of local wine. On cooler evenings, you can gather in the living room, which is a great spot to unwind. You will also find the elegant fully-fitted kitchen and a formal dining room on this floor. One of the bedrooms is located on the ground floor and has access to the garden.   

Upstairs you will find a further four boutique-style bedrooms, all of which are spacious and have an en-suite bathroom. Two of the bedrooms have large bathtubs, which are ideal for a soak with a good book after a day of sightseeing.   

If you are a couple, who would appreciate a little quiet, then you could sleep in the independent annexe on the grounds, which has a double bed and a unique green marble bath.   

The garden is an oasis where you can spend the day sunbathing, swimming in the private pool or tucking into an Italian feast on the covered dining terrace. The best feature of the garden is, of course, the panoramic views of the surrounding valleys and the mountains of Lazio.   

When you need to nip out for a bite to eat or visit the supermarket, Sarteano, the closest village, is just 3km away! You could drive or even walk if you wish. This hillside village is a great place to visit. It is packed with historical attractions such as a medieval castle which dominates the landscape and Palazzo Gabrielli, a Renaissance palace which is now a museum of archaeology. Sarteano is a lovely place for a meal as you can enjoy amazing views over the whole area while you eat.   

If you are wine-lovers, the villa is well-placed to visit some world-class vineyards. Just 27km away in Montepulciano, there are many brilliant family-run vineyards which have been in the area for centuries. Sample the local Nobile wine, learn about winemaking on a tour, and bring a few bottles back to the villa for dinner. If you prefer to spend time outdoors by getting active, then within a 20km radius, you can find horse riding, golf and tennis.   

There are so many villages and towns nearby that you could discover one each day. Just a few of these are San Casciano dei Bagni, Città della Pieve and Radicofani, which are all around 20km away by car.

What you should know…

  • One of the remarkable bedrooms is located in an independent annexe on the grounds, which is perfect for a couple wishing for a bit of privacy from the main group.
  • Guests should be advised that some of the terrain in the garden is a little uneven due to the rural nature of the home, and inside there are some steps connecting rooms.
  • If you are seeking more accommodation for a special event, then why not have a look at Rosa Alba and Cento Petali, which both belong to the same owners.
  • Please note that the access road to get to this villa is unpaved, it is recommended that you bring a car to make the most out of this incredible location.

Celestial Rose is the ideal Tuscan home, located amidst farmland and woodland and yet just a stone’s throw away from a quaint medieval village. Whether you are interested in wine, history, art, food or sports, there is something for everyone in this diverse area.   

When you are looking for somewhere to visit for a day out, then do not overlook the local village Sarteano which is just 3km away. This medieval village is nestled on a hillside and offers wonderful views over the valleys below. If you wish to learn more about the history of this area, then you can visit the archaeology museum at the Palazzo Gabrielli and wander around the prison cells, towers and gardens of the 1000-year-old castle. Explore the winding lanes of the village and pop into artisan shops, ancient churches and traditional eateries along the way.   

26km away from Celestial Rose, you can visit Radicofani, which is another charming village. Hike up to the imposing fortress, which protected the town from invaders from 973AD. There is some beautiful architecture to take in as you walk around, such as the black stone church, the Pieve di San Pietro, the clocktower and lots of tucked away fountains. Another way to explore is by hiring a bike, as you can also ride out to the nearby forests. Radicofani is not overly touristy, and you can sample authentic Tuscan cuisine at street-side cafes.  

San Casciano dei Bagni is another fabulous place to visit and is just 19km away from the villa. As well as historical attractions such as the walls, gates and churches which have stood since the middle-ages, San Casciano dei Bagni is known for its thermal waters. You can either try the water in the outdoor Bagno Grande, which has been in use for hundreds of years, or you can visit the Fonteverde spa. The spa harnesses the local thermal springs in 7 different pools and also offers beauty treatments and massages for a relaxing afternoon out.  

A larger town with a wider range of shops, restaurants and bars is Pienza which is 35km away from the house. This stunning town showcases the best of Renaissance design and architecture as it was funded by former Pope Pius II, who was born here. A great way to make sure you see all of the hidden gems is by taking a walking tour with a local guide. Depending on your interests, you can choose between a historical tour, an art tour or a food and wine tour. Head out early to make the most of this UNESCO site as there is lots to see and do.

Region

The picturesque Siena, located in the heart of Tuscany, Italy, is a mesmerising destination that encapsulates the essence of Italian culture, history, and natural beauty. With its rolling hills, charming medieval towns, and renowned art, Siena offers a captivating experience for travellers. One of the region's most famous attractions is the historic city of Siena itself, a UNESCO World Heritage site. The city's unique feature is the Piazza del Campo, a stunning shell-shaped square that hosts the world-famous Palio di Siena, a thrilling horse race held twice a year. The Torre del Mangia, a towering bell tower, offers panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside, allowing visitors to fully appreciate Siena's historic and architectural splendour.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Celestial Rose is the perfect base for a holiday with children of all ages. The incredible garden will be the children’s playground as the adults relax in the sun; with 9 acres of land and a private pool, there is plenty of space for them to run free and make memories.   

If you would like to take the kids to the beach, you do not have to go far to find one despite being located inland. Visit the vast and beautiful Lake Trasimeno, a 35km drive away, for a great family day out. The whole lake is lined with little lake beaches, and the nearest one is called La Merangola beach, where the kids can take part in water sports, paddle in the calm water or make sandcastles. With changing facilities available and plenty of places to eat in the adjacent village, you can spend all day here!  

Another lovely way to enjoy the great outdoors together is on horseback. Tuscany Equestrian Centre is located under 12km away; the centre holds organised treks through the gorgeous Tuscan landscape. Why not pack a tasty picnic and go out as a group with one of the knowledgeable guides? If your little ones have not ridden before, they can even take beginners lessons at the farm.

Reviews

  • Perfect

    on 23/07/2023

    A perfect property

  • Cannot be described

    on 11/07/2023

    Words cannot describe how beautiful this place is.
    The team was very helpful, accommodating all our needs. Hope to visit this place again

  • Most spectacular destination ever

    on 11/07/2023

    This is remote and high up.
    A long gravel road (which the homeowner made me fully aware of), but which ended with the most spectacular destination ever! I would repeat and extend this stay a million times!

  • Incredible

    on 20/06/2023

    Fantastic villa and beautiful property. In the wild. I feel like I'm in the middle of nowhere, but only a 10 minute drive from the town centre. Incredible experience.

  • Fantastic accommodation

    on 08/06/2023

    We had a wonderful week in Sarteano and the region. Both wine tours had very friendly staff and the guided tours were very interesting.
    The accommodation is fantastic and the equipment just perfect.
    We would all return to the Celestial Rose a second time.

  • Equipped with every comfort

    on 10/04/2023

    We spent some very pleasant days in this villa equipped with every comfort. Very clean and tidy. The staff has always been available and attentive to our every request. Lovely view. House with attention to the smallest details. Full marks!

  • Unforgettable experience

    on 09/09/2022

    The Villa was exceptional, the view from it in particular. During the trip, the car must have an object due to the location of the villa. The owners were very attentive and helpful.
    We also hired the boss Andrea, who is also recommended after witnessing his skills.
    Overall, holidays in the Celestial Rose are an unforgettable experience!!!

  • Wonderful holiday

    on 14/08/2022

    We stayed in this splendid villa in August 2022. We are a family with children between 20 and 23 years old and we had a wonderful time. The house is wonderful and has an incredible view that makes the place magical. The kitchen is super equipped, each room has its own bathroom and the living room is very spacious. All tastefully furnished in a modern style. The swimming pool is very beautiful and is equipped with sunbeds, deckchairs and umbrellas and is perfect for relaxing. The location of the house allows for day trips to very beautiful places in Tuscany and Umbria. The hosts were very kind and ready to solve any need with speed and efficiency. Maria who did the daily cleaning is also a very kind and professional girl. The road to get there includes a dirt road but it's really worth it. We had a great time and it was a wonderful holiday.

  • Being in awe

    on 10/08/2022

    Better than the photos may portray. We had a fantastic family reunion at this beautiful property. Our first impression was that of being in awe. The house is incredibly well furnished with all the necessities and also includes many daily essentials. It's a beautiful combination of old and new and is colorfully decorated with some fantastic artwork. The team working here is top notch. Maria, the housekeeper keeps everything spotless. Vasily the gardener, was immensely helpful and provided extra umbrellas for those of us who needed protection from the sun. Monica drove us from Sarteano and gave us a tour of the house upon arrival, saying goodbye to us when we left. He also helped us find places to shop and visit. Chris, who was very helpful in communicating before the trip, organized a nice dinner for us with chef Luca and his partner Chiara, which we highly recommend. It was truly la dolce vita for a week. I hope to be able to visit you again in the near future.

  • Stunning and clean

    on 25/07/2022

    We loved this place. The villa is stunning and so clean and comfortable. So many fantastic aspects and views and a simply breathtaking pool. We didn't want to leave. The hosts and housekeeping team could not have been nicer or more helpful. No request was a problem. We will definitely be back.

  • Beyond expectations

    on 04/07/2022

    What a beautiful property and the people who run it are amazing. We had a great time here, it was beyond our expectations.

  • Better in person

    on 24/08/2021

    Amazing villa that looks even better in person. The pool and interior design along with Chris and his amazing team who answered any questions small or large we had! We can't wait for our next return!
