Description of holiday apartment Tuscany

This single apartment, perfect for two, with large 15 meter infinity edged pool nestles on a secluded hillside, off the beaten track, in the famous Chianti wine region; its spectacular views look out over a hidden valley to the typical Tuscan hilltop village of Monte Benichi. The 'Cucule apartment' is perfectly situated for idyllic solitude, as well as exploring the wealth of Tuscan cultural centres within easy reach.

The apartment was our home before restoration of the rest of the house was completed in 2003 and is located on the ground floor west wing of 'Casa Cucule'.

The private and self-contained (60sq meter) 1 bedroom apartment is located on the ground floor of the left hand side of the house. It can sleep 2-4 people and includes; a spacious double bedroom with ensuite shower room. A large comfortable living space made up of a sitting area with sofa bed, a dining area, and a fully equipped "cooks" kitchen area allow for plenty of space to lounge, cook a wonderful meal with local ingredients, or just relax and enjoy the peace.

Ample private terrace to the front and side of the apartment is comfortably furnished and is perfect for leisurely "al fresco" meals, napping on a sun lounger soaking up the Tuscan sunshine, enjoying the surrounding aromatic garden: or, simply gazing at the stunning views by day or the starlit sky by night.

The nearest village to shop is Ambra (15 mins drive), here you will find a bank with cash machine, a petrol station, 2 cafes, a good restaurant, a couple of grocery stores, butcher, and market on Tuesdays. There are small supermarkets and banks in Bucine and Levane a further 10 and 20 mins away respectively.

We also provide a GENEROUS ‘WELCOME PACK’ of groceries to make an evening meal and breakfast, and the kitchen and bathroom are well stocked with all basic essentials

Location description

In the heart of Tuscany’s famous Chianti wine region and nestling just below the tiny hamlet of San Vincenti, Casa Cucule lies in an unblemished rural area blessed with idyllic romantic tranquillity. Within easy reach, however, are towns with such evocative names as Siena, Florence, Arezzo, Cortona and San Gimignano as well as hill top villages and tucked away hamlets. These offer a wealth of incomparable Etruscan, Medieval and Renaissance art, architecture and cultural history. Enjoy as well, the more day to day pleasures of soaking up the Italian way of life by dining in local hostelries, shopping at one of the many local markets for fresh produce or for Italian fashion at designer outlets.
