Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: After spending vacations every year in Tuscany - we just love this region - we've decided to acquire this house for it to become our family's vacation house and sufficiently large so that (many) friends can stay with us during our vacation. When we are not using the house ourselves, we rent it out to guests.

Why the Owner Chose Castellina In Chianti SI, Italy:
We looked for a house which would be sufficiently large to host family and friends in a comfortable way. On top of that, this house has a particular charm which is hard to describe in words, but which all travelers feel. Something eternal.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
I highlight certain points below: 1. Sleeping comfort: Unlike in so many rental places, we didn't want our guests to sleep in convertible couches. So there are 16 sleeping places in beds for 16 guests. These beds are spread over 6 beautiful bedrooms, which in turn are well spread over the house (with old thick walls) so that everyone had their privacy. There are also 2 baby cots available. 2. Table pleasure: We love to cook and we've made sure that the kitchen is pleasant for cooks and for those keeping them company. The house is very well equipped with tableware and kitchenware (including the champagne glasses for celebrations or an aperitivo on the terrace), for meals for up to 30 people. Everyone enjoys the truly unique "loggia", which is some sort of porch. It's a covered yet open terrace, where we have placed a beautiful long wooden table which can host up to 20 people. In the summer, without exception, this place becomes the center of the social life in the house. 3. Another distinctive element of the house is the very long pool (16 meters) but not deep...so the water heats up more rapidly, and it's less dangerous. It's perfect both for those who want to swim their lanes in the morning (such as me) and for the children during the day. The pool can be lit at night. 4. Last but not least, the house has an exceptional situation, in a very quiet and beautiful valley, far away from neighbors, yet at only 10 minutes driving of the center of the renowned village of Castellina in Chianti. The village is full of charm and hosts all restaurants, grocery shops, wineries, which you may look for. Since this year, there is also a mountain bike rental shop. Adding up to its exceptional location of the house is the very central location of the village itself, right in between Firenze, Siena, San Gimignano, Arezzo
