Our six apartments (for a total of 11 rooms) are accessible from the central square through a charming “cordonata” (a typically Italian ramped staircase) leading up to the courtyard.
The elegantly furnished apartments take their names after the varieties of olive trees grown in the Sant’Ambrogio Organic Farm. As a welcome gift, it will be our pleasure to treat our guests to a taste of our very own organic extra-virgin olive oil on a piece of toasted local bread.
Every apartment displays typically Tuscan architectural features, with each apartment having a unique and individual layout. Some of them extend over two levels, such as the Moraiolo, so that our guests can enjoy a higher degree of privacy.
The wide windows of the rooms offer a spectacular view of the surrounding woods and fields, filling the rooms with natural light. Four of the apartments are accessible through a secluded garden, a small piece of land that used to provide homegrown vegetables for the nunnery. It is now a peaceful place where our guests can enjoy a wonderful view of the Nature Reserve and revel in the blazing colors of Tuscan sunsets.
The Leccino apartment is named after one of the most common cultivars grown in our organic farm. A very common variety in the area of Florence and Pistoia, the leccino is highly productive and its fruit has an early and simultaneous ripening process. The apartment features a light-filled living room with two windows framing beautiful views of Palazzo Massaini and Pienza respectively, while the spacious bedroom boasts a private terrace. Because of the degree of privacy that the Leccino offers, it makes for a perfect bridal apartment. It also features a second bedroom, which can be separated from the rest of the apartment and occupied by other guests.
The Moraiolo apartment takes its name after a very common cultivar in Italy and in several other Mediterranean countries. The oil it yields is particularly valued for its antioxidant properties. The apartment has a typical two-level structure, with a deluxe room on the ground floor (with disabled access – can be occupied separately) and a second bedroom on the first floor. The entire living room is filled with natural light from a large window.
The Maurino apartment takes its name from a typical central-Italian olive tree variety, highly pollinating and compatible with a large numbers of cultivars. The apartment has courtyard access and is on one single level, so it is especially suitable for families with children. The main room boasts a typically Tuscan segmental arch, while the spacious living room and the two bedrooms offer a wonderful view of the valley and the lake.
The Olivastra apartment is named after a variety of olive tree unique to the Monte Amiata region of southern Tuscany. A highly productive tree, it yields an oil with very specific organoleptic properties. The suite apartment has a spacious hall with a fireplace and a staircase leading up to the bedroom. From here, our guests can enjoy a view of the slopes of Monte Amiata. The Olivastra apartment is especially suitable for couples looking for a real experience of peace and relaxation.
The Correggiolo apartment is named after the most common variety of Tuscan olive tree, whose oil is widely acclaimed for its taste and aroma. Both the living room and the two bedrooms can be accessed directly through the garden, which makes the Correggiolo particularly suitable for families with children, as well as for couple looking for some privacy and seclusion. In the living room, a rustic little corner with a bench and a fireplace is the perfect spot for a relaxing fireside chat.
The Pendolino apartment owes its name to a cultivar that is indispensable to any olive grove. As well as yielding its own excellent oil, the Pendolino variety is in fact a universal pollinator for every other variety. The apartment extends over two levels: on the ground floor, a spacious living room offers guests the unique sight of an ancient jar, hollowed out underground in the tuff rock, which was once used for the storage of grains. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one of which has garden access, while the other offers a beautiful view of Pienza and the lake. A spacious patio outside the living room is the ideal spot for relaxing and contemplating the starry sky on cool summer nights.
