About the Property

Authentically Restored Ancient Stone FarmHouse Featuring a Scenic Private Pool

⚜️(Limited availability remains for the 2017 Season, Please inquire for dates. Partial weeks may be scheduled according to Calendar openings)🌻.
~Curated by Los Angeles designers David Berry and Michael Busch, and placed strategically in the countryside of the Chianti hills just outside of Siena🍋, enter a gated and comfortable estate in the prime historic and most central area of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region.
Easy access from Rome or Florence make this a perfect choice for your stay in Classic Tuscany. Recently renovated with modern conveniences, this 1500's Stone Farmhouse is nestled in olive groves and rolling 'Chianti Classico' vineyards while still within a short walk from fine restaurants.
A professionally-equipped kitchen and multiple large outdoor living and dining spaces are just two of the premiere features of the estate property. Dreamliner Views overlook beautifully groomed and ancient Sangiovese & Merlot vineyards through to the rolling hills of the Chianti region.

The 'Vineyard Suite': Two bedrooms with en-suite bathroom. Double Bedroom along with Single Bedroom, private entrance, view terraces, bathroom with tub+shower. There is a cozy reading nook / window-seat in the double room.

The 'Garden Suite': Two adjoining bedrooms with large en-suite travertine bathroom. This suite consists of a carved chestnut-wood 17th c. double bedroom, private entrance with view terrace, a French-Empire single-bed sitting room, travertine Bathroom, antique claw-foot iron tub and large walk-in shower room.

The entire property is furnished with fine European antiques and authentic decor. Pressed Italian bed linens and plush towels are provided. Wireless internet throughout.

The main entrance floor consists of an updated cook's kitchen, dining salon, living room, powder room, our own 'piazza' and rambling view terraces with fireplace and BBQ. A tended kitchen garden full of herbs, greens and seasonable vegetables, with almond, apricot, fig, and berries only an arm's length away for those yearning to be Tuscan chefs.

Exquisite Privacy (see reviews!) with private hiking Trails, olive groves, and vineyards surrounding the estate. A private pool features breathtaking views to distant hills of Montalcino. The large dining terrace offers a pergola-covered travertine table with a large BBQ fireplace.

The estate is minutes from the village of Castelnuovo Berardenga and is within close walking or biking proximity to gorgeous small villages. Florence is about an hour and twenty minutes, Rome just under three hours.  Siena is twenty minutes away. Reached easily by car are towns such as Montalcino, Arezzo, Greve-in-Chianti, Castellina-in-Chianti, Cortona, Assisi.
White-sand tuscan beaches of the Maremma or fishing villages of the Cinque Terra are 2 to 4 hours away.

Located within short walking distance of the property are three excellent restaurants offering a range of dining opportunities.

Associated Residences: VRBO#557879, two charming private homes nearby in similarly private setting with views to Siena. It is possible to take these properties together for a larger group up to 14 or 15 or family desiring separate residences.

RECENT GUEST REVIEW:
"We haven't even been here at the villa for more than 10 hours and I am already in love!!!! This is seriously a piece of heaven on earth. You have managed to make this the best villa that we have ever stayed at and we have traveled the world. You are amazing!!!! This villa is so welcoming and your level of taste is beyond expectations. This is definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy over the past 2 1/2 weeks. The way that you have decorated this villa is beyond words. You have captured Italy beter than an Italian! The decor is PERFECT!!!! I love the art to the bedding to the extra-special touches that you include that are not done without appreciation on our end. Thank you so much for letting us stay here and enjoy your marvelous home.
We ABSOLUTELY willl be back! Like I stated haven't even been here a day yet and we LOVE IT HERE!

Thank you again for sharing your beautiful villa with us".
