The house has recently completed a total restoration, rescuing it from dereliction & near collapse. Situated in 25 hectares of its own secluded land which includes woodland, a 600 tree olive grove & open fields, there is an abundance of wildlife. You may see wild boar, porcupines, hares & deer, and the numerous birds include large birds of prey. The land has not been farmed and so there are masses of wild flowers. Terraced landscaped gardens lead down to the heated pool (approx 1.2 - 1.5m deep), which has an electric cover. There is plenty of flat space for games and table tennis and there are lots of quiet and secluded spots to sit and read or chat over a glass of wine while looking out at the sweeping views of the Val d'Orcia. The ancient brick-lined wood oven has also been restored. The house is at the end of a 2.5 km (1.5 miles) dirt road (strada bianca) maintained in good condition and there is plenty of space for parking.

Location: Pienza and Montepulciano are world famous perfect Renaissance towns, with a good range of shops for food, wine, cheese and other supplies as well as artisan shops and workshops and excellent restaurants and bars. The Val d'Orcia is unspoilt and much less developed than some other parts of Tuscany and its UNESCO World Heritage status ensures that it is protected from future development. Monticchiello, Montefollonico, Castelmuzio, Bagno Vignoni and San Quirico are only some examples of lovely little nearby towns and villages with excellent restaurants. Wine lovers can visit Montalcino and Montepulciano, those needing pampering can chill out at thermal baths in Bagno Vignoni or Bagni San Filippo, while Siena and Florence are easily accessible. There are concerts (classical, brass band, jazz, modern), opera, art shows,and a host of other events throughout the area, mainly in the summer months. www.LuxuryVillaTuscany.com

Thank you for sharing your wonderful Tuscan home

By Holly Petroff on 18-Oct-2023

Thank you for sharing your wonderful Tuscan home with us. What a special and magical place you have created in the gorgeous Val d’Orcia. You have considered every detail in your design making what is otherwise a rental property truly feel like a home away from home. We will certainly recommend your property to our friends at home and look forward to returning next year. Samuela is a true delight, making our stay extra special, even decorating the house with fresh flowers throughout the week. We are already planning our next visit. Grazie mille. "

What a wonderful and magical place.

By Val Rich on 21-Sep-2023

"We enjoyed every minute of our stay at Villa Luisa. Total Paradise. The gardens, pool and views were spectacular. The location was perfect. So close to Montepulciano, Pienza, Cortona, Siena, and San Gimignano. The stone villa with its arches and beautiful design was charming and welcoming. We felt at home the moment we entered. It was everything you pictured a villa in Tuscany to be. The staff was warm, sweet, and honest. I cannot speak highly enough about Villa Luisa. Truly exceptional! "

My Third Visit

By Mrs Linda Intaschi on 14-Jun-2023

"This is my third and, at 4 weeks, longest visit to Villa Luisa. A month went by too quickly! How lucky we are that the Salts continue to share their impeccable home - the gardens are even more beautiful with every visit, the house as comfortable, welcoming and perfectly maintained as always, the pool inviting, olive oil delicious, and views sublime. Samuela is a joy and takes wonderful care of all guests. Villa Luisa remains a perfect retreat in a splendid location. " L Intashi Toronto Canada June 2023
