Dell' Amore

Tuscan Country House

Dell' Amore is  a lovely restored four bedroom Tuscan country house, just 3 km from the charming 14th century walled town of Bounoconvento, with its excellent restaurants, wine shops, and farmer's market.  This ancient town has preserved the monumental Northgate dating from the 14th century.  It is a perfect setting for sampling the local white wines, Vinsante, and the white truffles from Siena.  This area of the "Crete Senesi" is recognized by wine connoisseurs as the home of the Brunello wines.  The location has easy access on a paved road for the 30km drive to Siena, the treasure trove of art and pageantry.  It is a 1 1/2 hour drive to Florence or 2 1/2 hours by train.

The tranquility of Dell' Amore is enhanced with views of the verdant countryside, with other homes seen only at a distance through the trees.  The private swimming pool area holds a lofty position on the property making it the ideal location for relaxing and enjoying the views.

The comfortable living room looks out over the lawn and out to the countryside; outside wooden furniture is provided for al fresco dining.  There are olive groves, cypress, umbrella pines, lavender and roses.  Olive oil, produced by the owners, can be purchased on site.

In the kitchen the quality of this restoration is apparent.  It is light, with views, is fully equipped, and is made cozy by the addition of a fireplace.  There is a large gas stove, one large and one small refrigerator, and tableware for 10.  It is an ideal kitchen for fixing a light meal or cooking for an ambitious dinner party.

Upstairs there are 4 bedrooms.  The master bedroom has a queen bed, ensuite bathroom with shower and bathtub.  One bedroom has a double bed, another a single bed, and the fourth has two single beds that can be made into a double.  The home is suitable for up to 7 adults plus one infant.

The home is decorated in a simple Tuscan style.  Dell' Amore has 2.5 bathrooms.  Two are large and one has a bathtub.  They are equipped with modern fixtures.
