Property description

Villa Campostefani is the main guest villa and, together with the Fienile cottage, it has eight spacious bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen with adjoining dining room and two comfortable kitchenettes. There are many separate living areas, both indoors and out, with ample room for guests to settle in and make themselves at home. Be sure to light up the barbecue and wood-fired pizza oven.
There is wi-fi for all to enjoy, a small library to peruse at your leisure and a satellite television in the upstairs family room.

two dining rooms | two living areas with fireplaces | one fully equipped kitchen | two kitchenettes | built-in barbecue area | wood-fired pizza oven | laundry room with washing machine | central heating plus a wood stove | wireless internet connection | swimming pool!

Villa Maladina is our country home, it’s where our four children grew up. We do not rent it out separately, but three rooms (sleeping up to seven) are available as overflow from Villa Campostefani.

The gardens at Le Pianore are a playground for adults and children alike. Chestnut, oak and cherry trees provide plenty of shade, while lavender and thyme, roses, jasmine and broom perfume and enliven the landscape.

Dip into our swimming pool for respite from the midday heat and enjoy lounging on the deck chairs until sunset, watching the sky turn red and feeling the cool evening air descend.

There is also a table tennis table, a volleyball net, swings and a jungle gym for the little ones.

Le Pianore offers all the facilities and infrastructure needed to host quality retreats and workshops in a beautiful and peaceful setting, ideally suited for creative exploration and spiritual practice. We cater to groups practicing a variety of activities, both meditative and dynamic: from yoga and martial arts to music, theatre and dance.

Sala San Francesco, built in the same Tuscan stone and vernacular style as the other villas, is an inviting space with oak parquet floors and large doors that open onto far reaching views of the pool and the gardens. A multifunctional studio with plenty of natural light, it is generously equipped with tatami mats, tables, chairs and blankets as well as a sound system. For those wishing to practice immersed in nature, there is a large sundeck and a shaded porch adjacent to the studio. In the cooler months the space is kept warm and cosy by a wood burning stove.

A separate loft area provides an intimate space for smaller groups or individual treatments. While the space lends itself to quiet reflection and meditation, the wall-to-wall tatamis also makes it an ideal dojo.

Car: Recommended

From the hills of the Val d’Orcia to the Maremma coast, Tuscany is a paradise for walkers, cyclists, bon-vivants and art buffs alike. With Le Pianore as your base, you’re perfectly poised to explore the many riches of this natural and cultural wonderland.

We can organise guided hikes, horse riding and cycling, excursions to thermal baths, romanesque abbeys and sculpture gardens. You could visit a vineyard and sip on a bold Brunello accompanied by a variety of local cheeses or learn how to make pasta like nonna right here in our farm kitchen. Whatever your preference, let us help you organise the activities that will make your stay all the more magical.

Towns of interest within reach of Le Pianore include Montalcino (25min), Pienza (45min), Siena (1hour) and Florence (2hours) and Rome (2hours).

Music, art and theatre festivals as well as folk celebrations are ongoing during the summer months.

Stretching for 4km along the Monti dell'Uccellina nature reserve, Marina di Alberese is one of the wildest and emptiest beaches in Italy.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1990

About the owner: I was born in Napoli, and graduated from The Economia University in 1985. I had always had a true passion for country life and started to manage my granmother's farm on the outskirts of the city at a very young age. I married my husband Francesco in 1987 and together we dreamt of creating our own country idyll. Which is exactly what we did when we moved our young family to breathtaking Tuscany.

Why the Owner Chose Castel del Piano:
When we came upon Le Pianore for the first time back in 1990, there was no way to reach it by car, so we wrapped our feet in plastic packets and crossed the icy stream standing between us and our future home on foot. We must have been quite a site walking through that wintry forest, as I was heavily pregnant with our second child and my husband Francesco was carrying our young son in his arms, trying to protect him from the falling snow with piece of torn-off cardboard. Villa Maladina appeared at the end of a small dry stone-walled path, and I had a tremendous feeling of déjà-vu: I had dreamt of this very moment the previous night, and it felt to me as though we had finally come home. We bought the property almost immediately, but it took us many years of living in a building site to restore our 12th century farmhouses in the most ecologically responsible ways available to us. And countless heavily laden trips in our truck, to and from our native Naples, to furnish the villas with pieces that have been in our families for generations (Don Frank’s great grandma’s armoire, my father’s dining room table) as well as treasures we found at various markets around southern Italy. Bit by bit we brought Le Pianore back to life, raising a family of four in the process. Our labour of love has borne its fruit, and we hope you will enjoy sharing in its bounty as much as we do. Elena Basile

The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
One thing all our guests have in common is the wonder with which they exclaim how much MORE BEAUTIFUL the property is in reality than it is in the photos. So often, it is the other way round. The fact is that Le Pianore's unique charms are impossible to capture with a camera. The villa is perched on a hillside and has views in so many directions that it is impossible to illustrate. It is also absolutely private: the 50 hectare property takes up the entire valley and there are no neighbours within earshot or sight. Apart from the medieval hilltop towns of Monticello and Montelaterone which straddle the peaks on either side, hardly a detraction. Not to be missed: the sunrise silhouetting Montelaterone. Absolute magic.
