The Estate

The classic cypress driveway leads to La Collina d’Oro, an estate situated on her own hill. The estate is located at the border of Tuscany, Umbria and Tuscia with panoramic views over the rolling hills of Tuscany, Monte Amiata and the castle of Proceno. Situated south of Val d’Orcia, the famous Enesco heritage site. La Collina d’Oro offers harmony, between luxury and nature, with complete privacy and the unreal beauty of nature.

Main House

The main house, overlooking the rolling landscape, exudes Italian elegance. The interior design is a harmonious blend of traditional rustic elements and modern amenities, to comfortably accommodate families and small groups.

Guest House

The guest house consists of one bedroom and bathroom. The guest house has a charming layout and is fully independent from the main house. The living area has a small kitchen and fireplace. The living area leads to the private terrace with a majestic view of the Castle of Proceno and the rolling hills. The bathroom is equipped for less mobile people with special handgrips, while all facilities are on the ground floor. The design of the garden provides for complete privacy from the main house located 50 meters away from the guest house.

The Pool

The pool (11x5m) is the highlight of the estate with travertine terraces, and is surrounded by lavender and rosemary with breathtaking views over the estate and the landscape.

The portico and loungers allow for comfortable seating throughout the day. To rinse off, there is an outdoor shower. The pool runs on a chlorination system, yet the smart filtration system and the automatic cover of the pool (Coverseal) keeps chlorine levels very low. Due to the cover, the pool temperature is comfortably warm, still giving the necessary cooling during the summer.

Garden

The classic cypress driveway leads to the square with a centuries old oak tree that forms the center of the estate. The garden is filled with ancient fruit and oak trees, with the fig trees estimated to be around 200 years old.
The garden includes a marble wood burning barbecue overlooking the Castle of Proceno and can be illuminated. At the edges of the garden electric wire is activated automatically after dark, to keep larger animals out of the garden.
The entire garden is well illuminated from dusk till dawn. The estate is enclosed by an electric gate.
