Agriturismo La Frateria di San Benedetto
DescriptionIn the heart of the Sienese countryside on a hill looking out over Montepulciano, the Val di Chiana and its lakes is the Frateria di San Benedetto, easily reachable on the main road from Chianciano Terme to Montepulciano.Thanks to its position, in the past the Frateria served as a stopping of point for travellers and pilgrims on their way to Rome. The present day agriturismo (farmhouse accommodation) conserves not only the original name and position but also its sense of hospitality and he original 18th Century structure complete with its dovecot, its bread-baking oven, its external staircase and its lodge. The whole building has been restructured so as to maintain the original atmosphere using natural materials which have always characterised rural Tuscan architecture (stone and terracotta tiled walls terracotta floors and ceilings and chestnut wood beams). "La Frateria" is part of the agrarian firm S.Benedetto, busy in the biological cultivation of fruit trees and in the production of jams.
HospitalityThe farmhouse has four comfortable apartments in the rustic and one in the autonomous annexe immersed in the olive-grove. The apartments are furnished with one or two rooms with bath, autonomous heating and masonry-kitchen. The structure is immersed in the sweet landscape of olive-groves, vineyards and orchards, in an protected faunistic area. Our guests can spend the time walking in the silence of the country, trekking or cycling with a mountain bike, swimmming or relaxing on the edge of the swimming pool, but also, with few minutes of car, discovering the more meaningful centers of the surrounding zones.
