If you have a predilection for Tuscany, then Foiano della Chiana, is one of the few remaining, centrally located, Tuscan towns which is both charming and authentically Italian. Given the current price tags on property for sale - which elsewhere would be tripled – it also offers great value for money! A quaint and pretty town, Foiano makes for a great Tuscan holiday destination, offering a genuine Italian lifestyle with few tourists, great road connections and wonderful surrounding landscapes.
This beautiful property (circa 180 sqm), built on four floors, very simply and sympathetically modernised and with a panoramic terrace is situated in Foiano’s historic town centre with direct car access and ample parking nearby.
It consists of:
Ground floor: Entrance hall, large and luminous study off which there is a second bedroom, a service toilet and laundry room.
First floor: Spacious kitchen with fireplace, living room leading out onto a panoramic terrace with wonderful views.
Second floor: Bedroom with walk- in-wardrobe, enormous bathroom, storage space.
Basement level: suitable for a wine cellar and/or spa area with ample room for storage and beautiful vaulted ceilings.
The property is attached to all mains services for water, electricity and gas.
Foiano is a lovely little town with a big history. Within the walled city there is a wealth of art and architectural works to be discovered as well as some exceptional restaurants (La Braceria Spizzichi e Bocconi being one!), a weekly market (held on Mondays), and a healthy choice of bars, wineries, shops selling local produce, cake shops and of course ice-cream shops!!
It is also famous throughout Italy for its annual masked carnival - which dates back to 1539 and may be the oldest carnival in Italy – held each year in February. The carnival is as important to Foiano as the Palio is to Siena, attracting people from all over the world. The spectacular floats which are designed and built each year by the four different cantieri (quarters) compete for victory in wonderful displays and pomp over 5 sequential Sundays. An event to be witnessed!
Foiano is located on the west side of the Valdichiana and as such is centrally located for travelling anywhere in Italy.
