Santa Dieci sits on a hillside of olive trees and vineyards facing Siena close enough that it feels like you can just reach out and touch the city’s famous skyline. The views are just simply stunning. From its strategic position the One thousand year old watch Tower controlled one of the main roads that led up to the gates entering into the medieval city. The old Tower has been converted into a very special private home, with a sophisticated and stylish modern finish. There is a large professional kitchen that leads out on the perfectly placed terrace with a shaded loggia for dining, enjoying magical views. The bedrooms are all ensuite less one, and the bathrooms are as stylish as the rest of the interior. The private swimming pool is set below the owners’ home, it’s for your private use, the owners who live there look after the estate and its vineyards producing a superb red wine, note that they don’t use the pool. There is also a guest house which has its own kitchen which comes with the Tower. There are two restaurants and a shop within walking distance and Siena is just 3km/2 miles away.
