Le Sorbelle, a villa located in the province of Siena, Val d’Orcia, Tuscany, Italy is mentioned in the Book of Records of the Ospedale della Scala starting from the XIII century where it speaks of its production of grains and livestock, and was part of the medieval estate of the fortified castle of Spedaletto. It is believed that the actual structure existed as a hostel for pilgrims, and has hosted visitors such the knights of Carlo II d’ Angio` in 1289, Pope Pio II in 1460, and the Archduke of Tuscany in 1676.

Today, the villa, Le “Sorbelle d’Orcia” of Siena, is a farm holiday resort which is made up of 7 apartments, tastefully furnished in the style typical of Tuscany. The apartment interiors are more than country farm house, they are very well decorated, beautifully restored apartments that would qualify them as one of the best residences to visit on holiday in the Siena, Val d’Orcia area. Obviously there were structural modifications made to this villa to permit modern conveniences, such as kitchens and bathrooms, but the restoration is very much in keeping with Tuscany style architecture, typical of Siena and Val d’Orcia.

The exterior gardens and surrounding grounds of this residence are quite spectacular, with very intimate spaces in the gardens and porches, and the communal swimming pool, completely finished in travertine marble, inside and out, is 20x6 meters, (60ft x 18ft), with full sun exposure.
