Crévole, is a tiny village perched on a hill 20 km south of Siena, about 4 km from Vescovado di Murlo and 12 km from Buonconvento (SS2 Cassia).
It is composed of five recently restored old "casali" and a rectory which incorporates the church of S.Cecilia, which is now deconsacrated . "Casa dei Mori", is the last house on the left-hand side, right below the tower and battlements of an ancient fortress, and it is immersed in the green coolness of a large garden next to an olive grove and 3 hectars of an oak and holme-oak wood down the hill to the main road.
There are two small vegetable gardens where our guests can pick up their salads and tomatoes plus season vegetables such as zucchini, string- beans, cucumbers, carrots and a good variety of herbs.
The main building is surrounded by vines that form a lovely scented pergola yielding the beautiful white grapes of a very particular kind of vine called "uva fragola", literally "strawberry scented grapes", also called "American grape".
The view is magnificent and peace and tranquillity are among the great assets of this place. However, reastaurants, shops, post-office and bank can be found just 4 km away at Vescovado di Murlo or at Casciano di Murlo. Crevole is also a very convenient starting point for pleasant walks and lots of interesting activities.
There is a swimming pool at "Le SOLINE", 8 km away.
Riding lessons & trekking a possibility at two different stables at about a quarter of an hour by car
