Le Logge di Sopra is a family run B&B located in the countryside, in the heart of the “Crete senesi”, on the panoramic “Lauretana” road, famous for its ancient “biancane” (clay knolls). It stands in a strategic position for a quick tour or a pleasant week full of significant highlights offered by nature, history, culture, gastronomy and oenology.
It is a former farmhouse dating back to the 16th century, skilfully refurbished respecting the original architectural lines and antique traditions.
The transformation of the large, striking wine vault into 3 snug rooms and 2 apartments, thermally comfortable at all times, has created a cosy structure that offers peace and privacy to guests, also due to the small number of people who can be accommodated at the same time.
The apartments, furnished in the Tuscan style, with rustic flooring and chestnut beams, are both made up of a living-room with cooking area (with 2/4 gas rings, refrigerator, electric oven and crockery) and a comfortable double sofa bed, a double room and a bathroom (with shower, hairdryer and courtesy kit) and a separate bath anteroom. Also provided: colour TV with SAT decoder (DVB-S), electric kettle, bed and bath linen, and mosquito-nets at the windows.
The rooms, for two or three guests,also furnished in the Tuscan style like the apartments, are cosy and quiet, and have an ensuite bathroom (with shower, hairdryer and courtesy), minibar, electric kettle, colour TV with SAT decoder (DVB-S), bed and bath linen, table, and mosquito net at the windows.
Guests can relax in the a beautiful solarium, where they can enjoy a vast, breathtaking view, or in the meticulously manicured garden with swimming pool. There is also a free private car park with automatic gate.
This is the ideal place for a relaxing holiday in the wonderful Tuscan countryside, with all the amenities of a lovely setting enhanced by a homey atmosphere.
The lovely breakfast-room, obtained from the ancient cellar, lets guests experience the emotion of a mouth-watering breakfast.
A special mention is deserved by the culinary specialities served at the typical restaurants (some of which with special rates agreed with our B&B), like the “ribollita”, the “pici” with wild boar, the chickpea or spelt and porcini mushroom soups, the charcoal T-bone steak called “Bistecca alla Fiorentina” with white truffle, considered to be the “white gold of the Crete Senesi”.
It stands 275 m a.s.l. and 5 km from Asciano, a small town of Etruscan-Roman origin with interesting sites and a wonderful, recently opened museum with Etruscan finds and sacred art objects of the 13th century, and an Etruscan tumulus tomb.
It is ideal also for winter holidays, owing to the nearby thermal baths, located 10 minutes away (in Rapolano Terme) and open all year round.
