Castelnuovo Berardenga farmhouse description

Podere a Cignano is one of those hidden jems in wine country one imagines all his life!

Handed down from generations, the farmhouse has kept its simple country feel that makes you feel at ease the minute you arrive.

Surrounded by vineyards, olive trees, roses and inhabited with Alberto's sculptures, the house has a very special, unique feel.

The high up position on the hills of Vagliagli offers open views over the castles in Chianti classico as far as San Polo in Rosso and Mount Amiata on the other side.

The owners, Camilla and Alberto, are respectively the best Siena tour guide and the most famous contemporary Siena artist. They are very passionate, creative, generous people who love comfort and beauty. They have been restoring the property for the past 5 years and are turning it into a very fine yet rustic boutique spa retreat.

The farmhouse was designed to be the owners' country residence and offers very bright and spacious rooms with a breathtaking panorama over the most authentic Chianti hills.

The house develops over two floors and develops around the large panoramic lounge off which opens the large private terrace equipped with table, chairs and umbrellas, the large kitchen with wood oven and the dining room with fireplace. The rooms are really very large and bright.

Off the lounge is a corridor leading discretely to the bedroom area hosting 2 large doubles and a twin room and 2 bathrooms, one with both bath tub and shower enclosure and one with a shower and to the staircase leading to the top floor hosting another large lounge, three bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a very large terrace offering stunning views.

An ancient wooden door in the lounge leads into the wellness area, of which La Grande guests have exclusive access. The wellness room hosts a sauna and a 6 seater Jacuzzi in the panoramic loggia which is completely glassed and kept to calidarium temperatures (30-37°). A charming stone staircase leads to the fascinating Turkish bath downstairs, elegantly painted by famous Siennese artist. The lower ground wellness area also hosts showers, bathroom and a marvellous massage room.

The large gardens and huge panoramic swimming pool ensures all guests have plenty of space to enjoy their privacy. The pool was recently newly paved and a new external salt water hot tub was put in. It offers vertical and horizontal massage as well as a waterfall. It was designed and built by Alberto himself with stone and marvellous new materials for top functionality and amazing pleasure!

The house is just a few kms from the village of Vagliagli where you have shops and amenieties.


Tuscany is the most famous and visited region of Italy thanks to its wonderful art cities - Florence, Siena, Pisa, Volterra, S. Gimignano to name just a few; its wine - Chianti, Brunello, Sassicaia, Montepulciano; its food - Florentine steak, the hearty soups, the wild boar stews, the wonderful fish soups; for its natural settings - the wonderful Tyrrhenian coast, the Maremma, the Crete Senesi, the Appenine and certainly for the fun loving character of the Tuscan people. The weather is gorgeous between May and October, July and August being the hottest months (38°) and May and September the greenest and lushest. Last week of July and mid August Siena hosts the famous Palio, an experience worth living. Every village of Tuscany has pleasant feasts throughout the summer and autumn. There are plenty of activities one can do whilst here.
