A stunning residence built into the ancient city walls of the medieval and atmospheric town of Castelmuzio, BORGO ANTICO is the epitome of style and grace. Situated in the tiny but charming Piazza San Bernardino in the town’s historic center, it provides a wonderful holiday home deep in the heart of rural Tuscany in the beautiful Val D’Orcia. Castelmuzio is a picturesque medieval village of Etruscan-Roman origin. It is located in the province of Siena, in the heart of the stunning, UNESCO-protected Val D’Orcia, one of the most sought-after natural settings in Italy.
BORGO ANTICO will allow you to step back in time as you experience the real Tuscany in this medieval hamlet’s narrow streets, medieval walls, watch tower, cloister and ancient arched stone gate.
A delightful, enclosed, lawned garden to the rear of the house includes a plunge pool and sun terrace for those lazy days when exploring the region is simply too much whilst the village itself is literally right on the door step and includes a pleasant bar – ristorante and local grocers. A wider choice of restaurants can be found in Pienza, a short drive away whilst wine lovers will enjoy a visit to Montepulciano just twenty kms away. The garden is well maintained with nice trees, cypress and it is plenty of flowers.
Inside, the house is tastefully furnished with a mixture of traditional style and modern – quality furnishings and ornate fittings blend seamlessly with modern bathrooms and air conditioning. In the ground floor there is the gourmet kitchen that includes everything required to indulge any urge to try the local cuisine and the simple addition of the wine cooler ensures that the local favourite is served at just the right temperature. A pretty breakfast terrace leads off from the kitchen into the lovely garden. A beautiful dining room and Lounge is in the same floor, 1 bathroom with shower. In the first floor there are two, beautiful suites, all with ensuite shower or bathrooms and all with air conditioning and luxurious, designer bedding. Stanza Grigia with its queen sized bed and dressing room which doubles as a single bedroom when required and has an ensuite shower room leading off.

Alterations/Cancellations by the Owner
In the unlikely event of a significant change or cancellation of the booking by the Owner, we will inform the client as soon as possible.

Alternatively, the client will receive a full refund, but we will not be liable to pay cancellation charges on the travel arrangements or for any other loss.
Luxury Villa Rentals Italy acts only as agents for accommodations and assumes no responsibility for property loss or damage, nor liability for injury, accident, delay or irregularity which may be occasioned either by reason or defect in any vehicle or the acts of any company or persons engaged in conveying the passengers to or from their accommodations. If for any reason beyond its control including force majeure, or the sale of the house, Luxury Villa Rentals Italy is forced to cancel the booking made by the client or his agent, best efforts will be made to offer another property of equivalent standard with which the client will be in agreement. If the price of the alternative property is less, the difference will be refunded to the client, but if the price is higher the client must pay the difference. If however, no agreement can be reached, both parties are entitled to cancel. Luxury Villa Rentals Italy will refund to the client only the rental price paid; no other amounts will become due.
Cancellations by You
Any cancellation by the client (for whatever reason) must be in writing (Including email or fax). The effective date of cancellation is the date we receive written notification. If the client cancels after the deposit has been paid, it will lose the deposit.
If the client cancels after the balance has been paid, it will lose both deposit and the balance.
We strongly recommend that the client takes out insurance to cover any cancellation.
All clients must be insured against holidays risks. Their signature on the booking form is a declaration that the client has a travel insurance and cancellation cover. On the Booking Form the client have to include the name and address of the insurance company and the policy number.
Security and Valuables
Any valuables left at the villa are left at own risk. Neither we nor the Owner are responsible for any loss. When provided, burglar alarms must be activated, safes used and proper care be taken against theft and burglary. It is essential and your responsibility to ensure all doors, shutters, windows are closed and locked when leaving the villa, or when by the poolside/in the grounds. No refund can be given should the client decide to vacate the property as a consequence of a burglary; unless it can be proven that the Owner has failed to inform the client of anti-burglary systems in the villa.
A security deposit is required to cover the cost of any damages or breakages to, or at the property, any additional cleaning, the cost of telephone and/or other services/utilities that are not included in the rental price. This amount will be payable by the client direct to the Owner in cash in Euros at the arrival.
The cost of utilities and/or other services used by the client or any damage caused by the client will be deducted from the security deposit and the remaining balance will be returned to the client by the Owner at the departure from the villa. If the security deposit paid by the client is not sufficient to cover the cost of such utilities and/or services or damage, the Owner is entitled to recover any additional costs from the client.
It is a client's responsibility to make sure the client deals with the arrangements for the security deposit. We can take no responsibility for any loss in relation to the security deposit.
The Owner reserves the right to make deductions from the security deposit for any extra cleaning, over the number of hours committed to departure cleaning, and to claim against the client for damage or loss, the cost of which exceeds the security deposit.
