A vacation at the Castle means to stay in harmony with nature. In our recently restored farmhouses, we offer guests the opportunity to immerse themselves in Chianti’s natural splendor, surrounded by beautiful landscapes of our vineyards and olive groves. We offer farm-stay holidays unique in their rustic Tuscan style, yet complete with modern comforts. Our guests stay on a real farm, and our guesthouses and villas come in different dimensions, which will accommodate just about any group.
A wrought iron and glass door, reminiscent of the castle gate, opens to an entrance room with a cloak room to one side. Around the corner is a large modern kitchen and cozy original brick fire place to make cooking a pleasure. The dining area straddles the space between the kitchen and the lounge room, taking advantage of the warmth of the fire and the views from the lounge windows. The books lining the lounge shelves are perfect for winter evenings curled up in front of the fire or for long summer days lazing on the patio.
The extra room can be used as a fitness room, a playing room for the children or an extra bedroom. There are many tracks leading from the house to the pond or the local village through olive groves and grape vines. These tracks make for great running or walking routes.
2 Double rooms, 1 room with bunk + 1 single, 2 bathrooms, big kitchen with fire place, living and dining room, private garden and patio area, central heating, extra room with sofa bed, and TV-Sat.
The 3 bedrooms are on separate levels upstairs so maximum privacy is achieved. The bedrooms are simply decorated in a country theme, with a focus on comfort.
The owners once lived in this part of the villa so the bathrooms and kitchen contain all modern appliances. Central heating and a fire place in the dining area makes this villa a perfect winter retreat.
Windows along three sides of the villa offer spectacular views overlooking the grape vines. The windows on the third side look out on to the private patio with its grand walnut tree
