Castelnuovo Berardenga villa description

WHY A 'CLUB'?
Mainly because this area has so much to offer and we hope guests will want to visit more than once. But also because what we offer is much more than a conventional 'self catering' rental. Our 'FULLY INCLUSIVE' weekly RATES cover: a generous WELCOME HAMPER of speciality foods & wines from top quality local suppliers, PLUS as much FREE Montecchio HOUSE WINE as you wish, throughout your stay. 'New For 2013' our FREE COCKTAIL TRAY of branded spirits and local liqueurs such as Limoncello. Complimentary CONCIERGE SERVICE provided by local hoteliers, who help with everything from booking restaurants, to fixing a cookery class or even a massage, onsite at Montecchio! ; ALL ENERGY COSTS - very expensive in Italy! ; all linens & towels(inc pool) with cleaning and change of linens every 3-4 days, and at end of stay; continuous supply of Fragonard bathroom toiletries and daily consumables (everything from dishwasher tablets to Montecchio's own Olive Oil!). Baby Cots/Cribs with linens, and High chairs, where required. Indoor & Outdoor Games, as well as Pool Toys for the Large Pool (19m x 6m , shared, open 01/05-31/09); DVD, Video & CD libraries offering a wide choice; FREE WiFi in all houses.
The result, we think, is 2 Comfortable Vacation Villas, that really feel like 'Home From Home', from the moment that you walk through the front door. We hope that you will be tempted to come and judge for yourselves!

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1998

                          About the owner: Montecchio is home in Tuscany to James and Penny Benfield, where we spend half of the year, and which we enjoy sharing with guests. We had the great good fortune to 'fall over' the best spot on the beautiful Villa Arceno wine estate, when contemplating the right place for a vacation home. After 30 years of living in Central London, and spoilt by a jet set corporate lifestyle with lots of travel, we needed something exceptional, in beautiful setting, away from the developed centres of tourism.

                          Why the Owner Chose Castelnuovo Berardenga:
                          Because it's a 'little piece of paradise' : - off the tourist track, - in a stunning location on a hilltop, with the breathtaking scenery of the Chianti hills on all sides, - in the countryside, but surrounded by picturesque villages, and just 20 minutes from the Renaissance gem of Siena, - and most important for 'foodies', the area offers a wealth of good restaurants & quality wineries.

                          The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                          HOME FROM HOME standards of comfort and luxury. Because we controlled the renovation of the large Tuscan farmhouse from the very beginning, we were able to develop the property with the emphasis on privacy. As a result, Montecchio is made up of PROPER HOUSES, and NOT APARTMENTS, as would be the norm in Italy. Each house has a separate outlook, private garden, and segregated parking pergola. Both rental houses were designed and furnished in the same style as our own place, filled with pieces of art & furniture from our own collections, and the kitchens equipped to professional standards. The result, we think, is two comfortable Vacation Villas, that feel like 'Home from Home', from the moment that you walk through the front door. All this plus the owners' in-depth knowledge of the area, and it's amenities, with the 'inside track' on everything on which local retaurants are 'hot' currently, to where to park safely & legally in Florence|!
