Casa Cerralta, is set on a small hilltop surrounded by trees, within in the national park of Val D’Orcia a UNESCO world heritage site. The villa is in a fantastic position surrounded by brunello vineyards with wonderful views over farmland and the Tuscan countryside. This is the perfect getaway for large families or groups of friends wishing to holiday together in a peaceful location. With Casa Cerralta you have the best of both worlds, with a secluded position, yet the town of Torrenieri is only 5km away and here there is a variety of shops, banks, supermarkets, and a choice of restaurants.
The salt water swimming pool is located across the courtyard, down a flight of stone steps. This is a lovely private area, part walled and surrounded by mature hedging. There is plenty of poolside furniture to relax in, as well as a covered gazebo with table and chairs, should you wish to shelter from the sun. The swimming pool is rectangular in shape and is accessed via a ladder at one end.
The property is surrounded by mature trees and shrubs and has large attractive iron gates with a small drive leading to a courtyard.
At the far end of the courtyard there is a covered area with a large dining table and chairs for eight people, guests also have use of a brick barbeque which is next to the outside staircase to the upper kitchen.
There is a further paved patio area with table and chairs. This spot has great views over the countryside as well as the pool area.
The main entrance leads from the courtyard into a large hallway with the traditional terracotta tiled floor and beamed and tiled ceilings.
To the left of the entrance door is the internal staircase to the first floor, directly ahead is the ground floor (2nd) kitchen, which has fitted cupboards, a large built in gas hob, microwave oven and free standing fridge/freezer, to one side is a wooden table and chairs. Next to the kitchen is the downstairs bathroom with shower, hand basin and WC.
To the right of the entrance hall is a large brick archway that leads into the lounge. This is a huge room with four brick columns in the centre. There are various seating areas with comfortable sofas and armchairs.
In one corner is a large wooden dining table with eight chairs, there is also a second smaller wooden table and chairs. The main feature of the room is the large brick built open fireplace; to the left of the fireplace are large arched double doors which open out onto the courtyard.
There are several ways of accessing the first floor; there is the internal staircase from the main entrance hall, also outside there are two sets of external stairs one leads directly into another kitchen and the second leads up to the balcony of the master bedroom. At the top of the internal stairs is a small area with a sofa, writing desk and chair, this is a good place to curl up with a book to escape the heat of the day.
From here you have access to a tiled and beamed corridor off of which a series of doors open into 3 of the 5 bedrooms. There is one twin bedroom and 2 double bedded rooms, the Master bedroom has an ensuite shower room and a large balcony with fabulous views over the countryside.
There are two bathrooms with showers, one of which is an open shower. All the bedrooms have terracotta tiled floors, high beamed ceilings and windows with views of the countryside.
All are attractively furnished with matching wardrobes, chest of drawers and side tables. The twin bedded room and two of the double bedrooms also have single sofa beds, which is ideal for families with a younger child, wanting to share.
The upstairs kitchen is very well equipped with an oven, gas hobs, dishwasher and fridge/freezer. To the left of the kitchen is the flight of stairs leading up from the courtyard.
The lounge area is through a brick archway and has a large open fireplace with two armchairs in front of it. To the right of the fireplace is a large wooden dining table with eight chairs. There is also a TV with some satellite channels and a DVD player.
To the right of the fireplace a door leads to a further two bedrooms, both have double beds, and as with the other bedrooms, both these rooms have terracotta tiled floors, high beamed ceilings and windows with views of the countryside.
Both are well furnished with matching wardrobes, chest of drawers and side tables, one of the rooms also has a single sofa bed. In between the two bedrooms is a large modern bathroom with full sized bath and hand held shower.


There is a leisure/games room, which includes a billiard table and a table football on the ground floor. There is a 6th bathroom in this room.
This is a fantastic villa for large groups of family or friends wanting to holiday together.
Virtually every window has far reaching views across the surrounding farmland and the Tuscan hillside.

Pros Everything. What is there not to like? And so many unexpected bonuses - the stocked wine cupboard and the wide selection of games to name but two.
Cons There was nothing about the villa, the area or the owners we didn't like, just the invasion of mosquitos that we hadn't anticipated. The existence of mosquito netting inside the windows should have warned us, but it was so lovely we left the doors and windows open and effectively invited them in. Our fault, but worth warning people about when they arrive late Summer as we could have defended ourselves quite easily.
Local attractions We knew most of the local towns having stayed further South before, but we got to Siena this trip which was a real surprise, we never expected such a beautiful and unspoilt city, we need to spend a whole day there next time. All the wineries nearby seem geared up to welcome you, even unannounced, and we didn't have a bad meal out the whole week so it would be unfair to single any one restaurant out. That said, the views from the Montepulciano restaurant we went to on our last day were breathtaking. And the people are just great, but that is true of all Italians of course.

Pros Casa Cerralta 10 is a very spacious and well appointed villa in spotless condition. The elevated location provides superb views over the Tuscan countryside while the courtyard, trees, canopies, and sun house provide plenty of shade. The private pool is immaculate and really makes the holliday such fun. It is also safely railled off to protect smaller children. Torreneri, the nearest town is only 5 minutes by car and has a good supermarket (Co-op) while Montalcino (15 minutes) is a fine sized town with winding pedestrian streets, artisan shops and nice restaurants. A really great place for the extended family to holiday together and come away with happy memories.
Cons Having to leave!
Local attractions Day trips to Siena and Florence.
