The Castle I Giardini di Val d’Orcia offers all the special charm, character and seclusion of a private home and garden, with the additional advantage of having the restaurant, tennis, playground and other children’s activities within easy reach.
When, in the early eighties, the owner began to renovate the square fortified farmhouse for many centuries occupied by 7 peasant families, an open informal garden was designed to blend into the surrounding countryside, and rambling roses, shrubs and bulbs planted to soften the stone-flagged courtyard shaded by a large linden tree. Two sides of the courtyard became the home of the owner and her children, who still live there when the whole family gets together.Recently the Castle has become available for rent.
