The Castello Buoncovento is a villa of prestige situated within a 600 hectare estate on the hills of the Val d'Orcia, nestled between Siena and Montalcino. This place, heavy with history, has been recognized by UNESCO and considered as a key reference point for the area. It is surrounded by a park of oak and holm oak trees and is reached along an avenue completely adorned with cypress trees. Also, mainly consisting of a 16th century villa and a sturdy tower, the Castello Buoncovento has been put under conservative renovation work by the owners in order to meet modern day requirements.

The villa is divided in four main areas: the ground floor, the first floor, the second floor, and the tower.
The ground floor leads you through a spacious entrance where you will find a stone fireplace and a small lounge room with sofas and a marble fireplace; on the same floor there is also a dining room with a table for sixteen guests, a guest bathroom and a habitable kitchen equipped with a breakfast table, an oven, a dishwasher and an American-style fridge.

The first floor is home to a spacious living room with sofas and period furnishings, a small lounge with a fireplace and a TV, and three double bedrooms with their en suite bathrooms with bathtub and shower. You will also find a bedroom with twin beds, which can be joined together if necessary, with a bathroom equipped with a shower.
