Cielsereno (serene skies) forms part of the country house, Casanuova, which stands on one of the most lovely of the Siennese hills with an unforgettable view of the Cecina valley. Not far from the historic centres of Sienna, Florence, Volterra and San Galgano, it offers too the chance to reach easily the coast with the nearby Puntala and Castiglione della Pescaia. We have restored the house, whose origins go back to 1600, with dedication, respect for tradition and attention to detail.
In Cielsereno you can spend an exclusive vacation in peace and in harmony with nature.
The apartment for 4 - 5 persons is found on the first floor with entry from an internal courtyard. It offers a private garden in which to find rest and coolness in the shade of the trees.
Also for the interiors we have chosen natural materials like hand made terracotta and travertine tiles; the beams and rafters of the ceilings are constructed in natural chestnut as is traditional.
Satellite television, an internet connection, an espresso coffee machine and a washing machine are fitted.
In the bedrooms next to the bed you will find a switch that suspends electromagnetic waves during the night.
The bedrooms are an ideal place to rest and contemplate, and offer an unforgettable panorama of the valley, with its changing colours, and its sunsets.
Lavender: double bed with the possibility of a third bed; two windows exposing true tuscan pictures. It evokes the perfumed notes of this precious plant.
Sage: two single beds that can be brought together. It takes its name from the light and calming colours on the wall.
The bathroom has a bath tub, where you can enjoy a deserved relaxation.
The swimming pool lies on a harmonious terrace overlooking the surrounding landscape which creates a calm and ideal place to be in nature. During sunset you can see the deer arriving from the nearby reserve. The modern water treatment plant permits the use of lightly saline water which is very gentle on the skin.
You may let go into time slowly passing, surrender to the sweetness of the hills in an atmosphere of peace and tranquillity and discover the secrets of regenerating body and mind.
On request our guests can relax with craniosacral or shiatsu treatments, ayurvedic, muscle or antistress massage, energetic lymphatic drainage therapy or simply by enjoying the enchanting panorama from the swimming pool and having walks in the countryside.
