The property is located in a well elevated and panoramic position, very close to a small village of the Crete Senesi, surrounded by olive groves and vineyards.

Location & Lifestyle
Rapolano Terme is located in the heart of Siena countryside, only few kilometres from the city of Palio. An apparently harsh land, as the villages scattered around the rough and clayey Crete Senesi look like, hides a warm heart, made up of its thermal waters, which spring from the subsoil charged with beneficial properties. It seems that even Giuseppe Garibaldi, soaking in a tub of travertine still existing today, found relief from his wounds in these miraculous springs. Among hot baths, whirlpools, and mud baths, therefore, you can choose a holiday that alternates relaxation with a visit to a territory that is an icon of Tuscany. Its two establishments, the Antica Querciolaia and the Terme di San Giovanni, are places of peace immersed in incomparable views.
The property includes a main building more than 2 annexes. The main house, of about 320sqm, is on three: on the ground floor there are some old stables, a warehouse, shed and storage rooms, plus an old oven. An external staircase leads to the first floor, where there are four bedrooms, a hallway, a bathroom and a large living room-kitchen, from which a staircase leads to the second and last floor, where there is a clearing room. The smaller annexe was used as a shelter for animals, while the second larger annexe, divided into two floors, has a stable, a storage room for agricultural tools and an external staircase leads to a clear room. To complete the property there is a courtyard of about one hectare, with the possibility to buy more on request.
