Ranuncolo is a magnificent Tuscan country house, located in arguably the most picturesque setting of Italy – theVal D’Orcia area of Tuscany.  The setting is ripe with the astonishing rolling hills and the wine country that Tuscany is so well known for. Set on a wonderfully private piece of land, this area was the exact setting for the Oscar winning movie The English Patient and the breathtaking panoramic countryside scenes from the Gladiator. Here you are in an area rich with the best that Tuscany has to offer as you are set in a superbly strategic location.  This is some of the best driving and sightseeing country around. You have amazing areas all through theVal d’Orcia (Pienza, world-famous for its town and cheeses, Montalcino & Montepulciano, arguably Italy’s most important wine territory) all between a 15 and 30 minutes’ drive.  The drive through Acquapendente & Pitigliano are some of the most beautiful in Italy, period.  Siena is certainly a day trip, San Quirico d’Orcia, a beautiful little nook of a town is only 15 minutes away, Lake Bolsena is near, even Orvieto is only an hour away.  Arezzo & Cortona are only an hour and 15 mins away and Perugia, 90 minutes.  Here, you are in sightseeing heaven. This is also Golfer’s and Spa enthusiast’s dream location.  You have the luxury of Italy’s two premier Spa’s nos more than 30 kilometres away as is theVal di Chiana Golf Club (9 holes).  The Lamborghini Panicale Golf Club (9 holes) is 50 minutes and the 18-hole Perugia Golf Club just a little bit over an hourish.  Simply stated, this is THE perfect rental property. History: This property was purchased in the last decade of the 20th Century and underwent a total renovation.  Owned by a renowned interior designer, the villa is a beautiful stone-brick building and the vast majority of the furniture and amenities are conceptualized, designed, and manufactured by the owners themselves.  In fact, most of the home decor and furnishings – from the handmade soaps and olive oils, to the embroidered towels and bathrobes, to the dining table – can be purchased from an interior design catalogue. The property hosts up to 19 guests between the main villa and the charming annex, an ancient barn, fully renovated and splendidly furnished and decorated.
