Lovely dependance in the heart of Crete Senesi. In the outskirts of the village of Asciano, situated in the heart of the famous 'Crete Senesi' and placed in a sunny and panoramic position, we find the PIEVE DI SANT'IPPOLITO. The property consists of a manor house, where the owners family lives, a cottage available for our guests, and the ancient church the 'Pieve di Sant'Ippolito e Cassiano' which origins date back to the third to fourth century AD. and where inside you can admire a beautiful fresco made by several hands by renowned artists of the Umbrian school, such as Pinturicchio and Raphael, but mistakenly attributed to the Sienese painter Giacomo Pacchiarotti a minor artist of the Sienese school. On August 13th, for the feast of Sant'Ippolito and Cassiano, the church will be open to the public and a Holy Mass will be celebrated there. During the rest of the year, being a Private Church, the owners grant only on rare occasions the opening of the Church, while the guests of the house will be able to visit the Church freely.
The village of Asciano, with shops, restaurant and all kind of facilities, can be easily reached through a nice pedestrian path.

We stayed here with my parents and newborn son when we came to the area for a wedding. It is perfect for a family holiday, especially with children. The house is immaculate but the best bit is the outdoor space. Gorgeous pool, lawn, patio, BBQ area and play area with swings etc. There aren’t any other holiday rentals on the property so you only share it with the owner’s family who are absolutely lovely and made us feel so welcome. A welcome package with some local produce was a really nice touch. We also enjoyed walking into Asciano each morning for coffee. Perfectly located for trips to Siena and other Tuscan villages. We would highly recommend this property and wouldn’t hesitate to go back.
