Castellaccio 1: Firenze (Florence) Province Vacation Rental by Owner Listing 412929ha
The rural complex of Villa il Castellaccio, once a fully working farm, is set in a beautiful panoramic position in the heart of Chianti, between Florence, Siena and Arezzo . The apartments, all recently reconstructed from the original farm buildings are furnished in style and comfort with all mod-cons .They all have their own entrances on different sides of the complex giving each a sense of privacy. They share a big terrace with gardens and the main swimming-pool, but often it will seem like you are the only guests, it's always so peaceful and quiet !
Castellaccio 1 sleeps 5 and has: a dining room with fireplace, a well equipped kitchen, 2 bathrooms with showers, 1 double bedroom, 1 twin bedroom, 1 single bedroom. This apartment is on the 1st floor and is reached by an external stairway. It is very luminous and has super views but does not have an immediate outside eating area though guests are welcome to use the dining facilities in the garden by the pool opposite.
About the Property
5 Bedroom Villa for 10-12 people & Apartments with 2-3 bedrooms for 4-6 people.
Cooking classes and Dinners with Chef: It is possible to organize Cooking classes and Dinners (for those of you who just love the food but don't cook) with a professional Chef who comes to your kitchen on the evening you prefer- it's a great highlight to a stay at Villa il Castellaccio and very popular. You can choose from several menus, all typical Tuscan!!....your kitchen is cleaned up for you after which is nice too!
Wine tasting: We do wine and olive oil tasting in our wine cellar € 5 per person.
There is also a small museum of farming equipment from days gone by.
Trips further afield: Maybe some of you would like to explore more distant places
We can organize day trips or half day excursions to places like Rome, Siena, Venice and the Cinque terre (to name but a few).
With special permits enabling our drivers to go directly into the Historical city centres and often right up to the main monuments and places of interest, means you can concentrate your time enjoying the sights without the hassle of parking, traffic and endless walking.
Another advantage is for the Chianti wine tour; noone has to te-total for driving so you can ALL enjoy the wine!
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.
