Located in the heart of Val d’Orcia within 500 acres of arable land, woods and vineyards, Le Cupole was originally an important farmhouse and today is one of the finest country properties of the area surrounded by the vineyards of Tenuta di Trinoro, one of Italy’s well-known estates producing Super Tuscan wines. The interiors of Le Cupole are completely in style with the Tuscan tradition and are the wonderful creation of renowned designer, Ilaria Maini. Whilst many of the classic original farmhouse features have been maintained, more contemporary furnishings have been incorporated with the end result being a delightful rustic yet chic country home.

Each of the spacious double bedrooms enjoys its own superb en suite bathrooms and dressing rooms plus stunning views over the surrounding countryside .There are two living rooms, each with fireplace, and a large dining room with seating for up to twenty people. The kitchen is a dream and incredibly well equipped – the perfect venue for those guests who love to buy local produce and experiment with their Tuscan cooking whilst on holiday. Others may simply prefer to sit back with a fine glass of wine and be looked after by the excellent chef at Le Cupole! Adjoining the house is a fabulous covered pergola area, with stone BBQ for outside dining for up to fourteen people. Here guests can savour produce from the vegetable garden which is positioned near the entrance, fresh pecorino from nearby Pienza and much more. Again, the views from here are outstanding and one will find it hard to draw oneself away from this magical setting. The large, heated swimming pool provides the ultimate venue for relaxing with a good book and absorbing the tranquility of this beautiful place.

Not far from the peace and idyllic ambience of Le Cupole there are many fine hilltop towns to visit such as Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino with charming shops, restaurants, markets and wineries and plenty of opportunity for walks and bike rides for the more energetic. A magical home at any time of year, Le Cupole cannot be too highly recommended. As well as being a magical and luxurious home, guests will cherish the excellent concierge service provided making this a veritable place to totally unwind, sit back and be looked after with the best hospitality one could wish for!
