Real Estate agency in Siena - your real estate agent Engel & Völkers
Welcome at Engel & Völkers, your real estate agent in Siena
Siena “the most beautiful province in the world” has to its advantage four Unesco world heritage sites. This historical province includes the timeless centre of Siena, Pienza, San Gimignano, Montepulciano, Montalcino. The landscape is made up of the rolling hills of Val d’Orcia, vineyards of Chianti, the undulating grey clay of Crete Senesi, the noble harshness and thriving green of the Montagnola. All these areas link back to the age of the Etruscans, Romans, and to centuries of bloody battles against Florence. Traditions like the famous Palio of Siena are in the hearts of the residents, an annual beating of their collective pulse. Smaller towns have their own feasts, the Santa Fina of San Gimignano, the celebration of the white truffles found in the Crete Senese and San Giovanni d’Asso and the vendemmia of the deep red Chianti in September. People, history and tradition bond with the territory.
The seasons still influence life in the little towns and hamlets with the harvesting of grapes for wine, grains for pasta and bread and olives for each year’s new olive oil. Each season brings new life to the landscape, the whole province becoming a natural film set. The portfolio offered by our real estate agency is extensive, ideal country homes set in Chianti or Brunello vineyards, farm houses that dominate the hills of Val d’Orcia, a Cypress lined driveway to your new home in the Crete, the ‘Piccolomini' villa on the outskirts of Siena, the view across the rooftops from a centro storico apartment, or an antique villa, perhaps a cardinal’s hunting lodge or a noble’s country estate surrounded by its own hectares of the past. Our qualified International team will be able to guide you step by step through your purchase with a carefully chosen selection of properties. Beauty is not a just a dream, in Siena you can live it.
