About the Property
Villa, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)
Terracotta laden 12th century villa in the ancient village of Saint Vito of Ortimino, is just six kilometers from the town of Montespertoli; in an unspoiled, laid-back region of the Chianti countryside. Seasonal festivals celebrating the local truffles, the grape harvest and fresh pressed olive oil are magnificent to experience. Renaissance Florence, just 35 kilometers northeast, is available by scheduled buses; or short drives while nearby hill towns include Siena, San Gimignano, Certaldo and Vinci.
This charming, completely restored sacristy with its landscaped fauna and rose gardens, part of a larger borgo is in a secure gated community which lies on top of a beautiful Tuscan hillside, with sweeping panoramic views of this exquisite countryside dotted with olive groves, vineyards and cypress trees. A hill top walk surrounding the submerged valley before stopping at the Panchetti bakery for a warm loaf of bread is a must!
The inviting first floor living area with its hewn post and beam construction is nicely decorated with warm colors that reflect the local landscape, comfortable modern furniture and a sculpted stone fireplace. Satellite TV offers world wide coverage and films in multiple languages. The gourmet eat-in kitchen with its hand-crafted walnut cabinetry, travertine countertops, high-tech stainless appliances and professional cookery encourage all epicureans and not to try a hand at Tuscan cooking. How can you resist the smell of the fresh basil, rosemary and sage that emanate from the garden? The antique communal harvest table will draw in your guests…Mangia, anyone?

Year Purchased: 2003
About the owner: Kimberly and Alessio Pucci are the owners of Casa Alina, a villa in a restored hamlet that they purchased after living in the heart of Renaissance Florence for more than ten years. The couple was looking for a quiet place in the unspoiled Tuscan countryside to raise a family that was within a short drive to Florence. Kimberly, an American, studied in Florence and then began her career in the Italian jewelry business as a buyer for the Piccini family on the Ponte Vecchio. Alessio, a Tuscan native, earned a double Phd. at the University of Pisa in Structural Engineering and Architecture. Casa Alina is named after the couple's first child, Alina, who was born in Florence in 2004. They have since moved to Rhode Island where Kimberly works in luxury goods. Alessio is a partner at Paul Weber, an architectural firm in Newport. The family welcomed a new baby, Niccolo', in the Fall of 2009. Casa Alina has become their retreat from their hectic lives in the US!
Why the Owner Chose Montespertoli, Metropolitan City of Florence, Italy:
Rolling hills dotted with cypress trees, walks in the vineyards, our olive groves...a great location with fabulous wine and amazing food! Need we say more?
The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
