Property description



Built around a 13th-century watchtower, Villa Il Cerretaccio offers beautiful views of the Chianti countryside in a luxurious setting. With nine bedrooms and plenty of outdoor space, the villa is ideal for a family reunion, wedding or simply a relaxing getaway. Though the location is quiet and private, its a short drive to Siena and Florence and their museums, dining and shopping.


From the wide lawn and inground pool to the outdoor cooking and dining areas, the grounds of Villa Il Cerretaccio have panoramic views of the surrounding hills. Take advantage of the rural location and arrange to use the telescope, or ask to see the wine cellar and have a tasting. Cooking classes, olive-oil tastings, massages and yoga classes can also be arranged at extra cost. If its cloudy or youd prefer a quiet evening in, theres a PlayStation 3 and Wi-Fi access.


Inside, beamed ceilings and brick floors, fireplaces and arches speak to the villas history, as do the original antique furnishings, from large wooden cupboards to accents like silver platters. Modern sofas and armchairs are comfortable spots to curl up in front of the fireplace, and since the dining room is open to the living room, theres a convivial feel. The spacious kitchen has the same atmospheric brick and beams and is fully equipped.


There are five bedrooms in the main house of Villa Il Cerretaccio and five in the guest house. In the main house, theres one bedroom with a double bed and en-suite bathroom, two bedrooms with double beds and a shared bathroom, and one bedroom with a double bed, single bed and en-suite bathroom. In the guest house, there are two bedrooms with double beds and en-suite bathrooms, two bedrooms with double beds and a shared bathroom and one bedroom with two twin beds and an en-suite bathroom.


From the villa, its a 10-minute walk to a nearby restaurant, or a 5-minute drive to the nearest village and grocery store. Theres a tennis court, hospital and train station 15 minutes away, as well as a golf course, 50 minutes away. Take a day trip to Siena, a 20-minute drive away, or Florence, a 50-minute drive away. The beach is 80 minutes away and the airport is 95 minutes away.
