This beautiful stone farmhouse is set on one of the many magical hill tops that dot the stunning countryside of the Crete Senesi, just south of the city of Siena, which skyline can be admired from the pool area. La Piana is the private home to an Italian family that searched for years for the idilic house with the perfect position, it has it all, style, history, location and views. It's surrounded by a perfectly kept garden with extensive lawns in total privacy at the end of a white road. On the edge of the hill enjoying the best of views is the private swimming pool, next to which is a charming pool house and a shaded outside seating area. Both the large guest house as the main house enjoy tall beamed ceilings and terracotta floors and have been very tastefully furnished. The main house has a large open plan ground floor with a well equipped Tuscan kitchen with a dining area, a billiard room as a large dining room. The buildings as the garden are maintained to a high level by the couple that live on location.
