Val d'Orcia (Siena) - Tuscany

A luxury retreat with a fresh contemporary design on a hilltop with 360 degree views of the Val d'Orcia UNESCO heritage park and the hilltop towns of Montalcino, Pienza, Bagno Vignoni, San Quirico d'Orcia and Radicofani. As you step in you fell at home thanks to a very informal and relaxing atmosphere created by the owner. He wanted a beautiful, comfortable house with a modern look for people to come to relax, cook big dinners and enjoy Tuscany with all the comforts of a five stars Hotel.


Pastore sits on a four acre property surrounded by rolling sheep pasture and grain fields. There is a swimming pool with an infinity edge facing west across the wide valley, a hot tub with Jacuzzi jets and a covered dining pergola for outdoor dining and relaxing. In the pool area there is also a bar with a fridge that is kept stocked by the staff with wine, beer, soft drinks and water, a card table with games, yoga mats and blankets, an I-Pod dock and a soft sofa.


Inside you find cream-colored stone floors, queen size mattresses, massive showers with Santa Maria Novella and Hotel Sirenuse skin care products and in several rooms stand alone bathtubs with views over the valley. The professional fully equipped kitchen is the heart of the living area and a full time gourmet chef is available for shopping and meals. You also have access to the owner's personal wine cellar and Cuban cigars. All the bedrooms have self controlled heating and air conditioning.


Although you feel a million miles away, Pastore is only 20 minutes off the A1 highway. The last 3KM is on a very bumpy dirt road, so drive carefully but fear not!
