Welcome to La Ginestra, a newly renovated cottage nestled inside Tuscany’s most romantic landscape, southern Siena Province. It’s an exceptional independent house for two, offering privacy, a perfect location, and stellar views. The house is located on a ridge between the Val d'Orcia and the Val di Chiana, Tuscany's evocative and classically characteristic valleys. La Ginestra's elevation (530 meters or 1740 feet) keeps temperatures cooler in the summer than the towns found in the valleys below. The changing seasons all offer their own magic.


It overlooks distant and fascinating hill towns, the occasional vineyard, pasturing sheep, orchards and rolling hills. It sits on an acre and a half of olive and fruit trees and produces its own olive oil. In an undiscovered part of Tuscany, untrammeled and off the beaten path, yet close to Tuscany's hot spots, La Ginestra is nestled halfway between Florence (1 3/4 hours) and Rome (2 hours), and is a little over an hour¹s drive from Siena. La Ginestra is an easy drive away from some of Italy's most revered sights, most through breathtaking countryside.

In the house, there are maps, guidebooks and a binder with extensive information that will help you enjoy your visit to the house and the surrounding area. For your convenience, we included local shops, sights, services and some of our favorite restaurants.
