Property description

This stylish 16th century property is perfectly situated for day trips to Florence, Arezzo and Siena. At the South-East border of the 'Chianti Classico' area, this perfect location is not only a short distance from Tuscany's most famous cities of art, but is also surrounded by countryside of outstanding beauty scattered with woods, vineyards and olive groves.

Castellino Bucine is conveniently situated in the historic centre of the village, where local amenities such as restaurants, bank, post office, shops, cafés, supermarket and a free parking area are just a five minute walk away.

Both 75 m²/ 750 square feet apartments comfortably accommodate 4 people each, 2 in the bedroom and 2 in the living room on a sofabed (although to 2 additional single beds and two baby cribs, thus max. 10 people in the whole unit) can be provided. The apartments are available, for a minimum of three nights, throughout the whole year, individually or combined. High speed internet is available in the apartments and on the terrace.

This holiday rental is full of character and offers everything a Tuscany enthusiast desires: a wonderful view, a panoramic terrace and a fantastic garden which once belonged to the Medici family.

In a peaceful setting surrounded by cypresses and pine trees, you can while away the days relaxing or sightseeing and, in the evenings, take advantage of our outside fireplace with a glass (or two!) of wine and just enjoy being 'away from it all...'

If you like to book the whole unit please check the calendar of the other apartment (first floor) first: Listing ID 729244 and make sure that both apartments are available at the same time ;-)

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: We are a German couple and went to live in Italy for two years about forteen years back. Well, we ended up staying a bit longer as we bought this beautiful property 13 years back now and rented out one of the two apartments and lived in the other. For a variety of reasons we needed to go back to Germany and now rent out both (when we are not in Bucine ourselves).

Why the Owner Chose Bucine:
Basically we wanted to stay only for a year or two on the Tuscan country side as Florence, where we worked at the time, was just too expensive (this was 2001/2). But when looking for places to rent we've seen the Castellino Bucine and just fell deeply in love with this house - In the historic center of a village, but with a huge garden - and all this on a hill top with a marvellous view - so we bought the house and just hope to be able to keep it until our old age (and then live there again).

The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House:
In the Castellino Bucine we love - staying outside on the terrace late in warm spring and summer nights and enjoying the view and the air - relaxing a whole day in the garden - visiting the beaches or surrounding Tuscany for day trips - the beautiful old stones - the fire place in the winter
