Old stone farmhouse with private swimming pool, situated in an extremely panoramic position on the Val d’Orcia, only 2 km from the beautiful Pienza. Suitable for groups of families or friends, pets are welcome.
Fonte all'Oppio is an old stone farmhouse situated in a very panoramic position, inside the Natural Artistic Park of Val d'Orcia. Only 2 km away you will find the renowned Renaissance town of Pienza, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site for the importance of its monuments and urban layout.
A short distance away are the towns of Monticchiello 2 km, Montepulciano 12 km, Montalcino 25 km which we absolutely recommend you to visit, and spas such as Bagno Vignoni and Chianciano Terme where you can regenerate body and soul.
The villa is part of a farm with about 35 hectares of land that produces cereals, excellent extra-virgin olive oil that can be purchased on site, and other typical local products such as wine, jams, etc..
Fonte all'Oppio is a true historical home, perfectly preserving the scarp basements of the perimeter walls, the stone floors and the wooden beams, and is furnished in an essential manner with original antique furniture. These characteristics give the farmhouse an atmosphere of other times, you will feel immersed in history at Fonte all'Oppio.
The owners, who are always available for any need, live in a farmhouse two hundred metres away.
The most appreciated area of the villa is undoubtedly the swimming pool area (size 5x10 - depth 1,50 m. completely fenced). From here the view over the Val d'Orcia is something incredible. Hills with undulating movements are lost in sight, warm and relaxing colours of cultivated fields, vineyards, a postcard at any time of day and in any season. In the large outdoor area you will also find a barbecue, a wood-burning oven and a characteristic gazebo ideal for eating outdoors in front of the panorama.
Fonte all'Oppio is divided into 4 independent units and is therefore particularly suited to accommodate a group of families who want to spend their holidays together while maintaining their privacy.

As a large family (four adult siblings with partners and parents) this was a fantastic home for us! The living situation is both together and separate. There’s one big but cosy family room with a long table for dinners and a great fireplace. This kitchen is fitted out with enough cooking pots and pans, platters and a dishwasher. Then, there are 3 other smaller kitchens linked to the various other ‘apartments in the rooms’ - so when you need a bit of peace and quiet you can definitely get some! All the rooms have been decorated in a charming rustic way, it seems well put together and aesthetically enjoyable but know that it is an old Italian style and not new and fancy. The swimming pool area is very beautiful and tranquil and the host (who does not speak much English and is no Italian) was a kind and charming person. The villa is really well located with a view of the valley and within a nice 30-40 minute walk into town (3.3km), but the hill is steep so be prepared! I can thoroughly recommend Villa Fonte all’Oppio as a wonderful holiday spot!
