About the property

Beautifully restored 3-bed villa with large private garden. Shared 20 metre pool

The Barn at Bagnaie is a luxury 3-bedroom Tuscan villa, which we have modernised and furnished to a high standard.

The interior mixes traditional materials with Italian modern design. The large living room features an open log fireplace, original terracotta tiles and wooden doors leading out onto the south terrace and gardens. There is a separate kitchen/dining area fitted with marble worktops and equiped with all the utensils a serious food lover needs to be able to enjoy local market produce and Le Bagnaie's kitchen garden. There are also double doors from the kitchen leading out to the terrace and the vine-covered pergola. The villa's private landscaped garden - rich with cherry, pomegranate and fig trees and with a built-in BBQ - surrounds the property and enjoys 360-degree views of the countryside, including the distant Duomo of Siena to the south and the towers of San Gimignano to the west.

Our villa sits in the small hamlet of Bagnaie, where we share our hilltop with 7 other houses. We have a full time gardener who maintains the extensive gardens and grounds as well as the shared 20m pool, which is solar heated. There is also a tennis court can be used all year round and a boules pitch.

We have a local property manager (English and Italian speaking) who will be available during your stay to assist you where necessary.

We can arrange for meals to be cooked at the house for you if wanted by local chefs.

Blissful setting

  • 5 of 5

Ditto what others have said. We rented a car but were always debating whether to visit another hill town or just relax and enjoy our "villa time". It's a special place. Don't miss this chance for a charming experience in Chianti!

The Best of Tuscany!

  • 5 of 5

When we made our reservation for a week at The Barn we thought it looked like a really great place. When we drove throught the gates we realized we were way off base - it was spectacular!

The accomodations were superb and the views were amazing. There were 4 adults in our party but we would have been comfortable with 6. The support staff was very accomodating even down to the gardners. We basically had the whole complex to ourselves for our entire stay, which probably wouldn't be the case in the summer months.

The property is very accessible to towns and villages for day trips and there are miles of "white" roads (gravel) for hiking. The fireplace also came in handy several of the nights of our stay.

We read reviews and saw that others had recommended Serena to come in and cook meals. Well, we booked her for our first night and ended up using her 3 nights. All of the meals were terrific and she is a wonderful person to be around. We highly recommend her.

I cannot think of a better place to stay for a trip to Tuscany.

Dreaming of The Barn at Bagnaie

  • 5 of 5

My family (2 adults, 2 children) spent four days at The Barn, our home base during our stay in Tuscany, and we loved it! The hamlet is stunning as it is perched on a hilltop surrounded by vineyards and olive trees. In the garden, you can stand in one spot and see the tower of Siena on the left and the unique skyline of San Gimignano on the right - a perfect location from which to explore the Chianti region. During the day, we visited other cities along the Chianti Road but always looked forward to coming back to The Barn to enjoy the classic Tuscan sunsets, go for a swim in the luxurious pool, and await Serena's creations for dinner. Serena came to make us Easter dinner and we invited her back for our final night. She is an amazing chef who uses local ingredients and the herbs from the garden to create four-course meals that were the best we had all trip. Corin, thank you for sharing The Barn with us. We look forward to returning again in the future!

Absolutely stunning. A perfect haven.

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous property, friendly people, the perfect escape.

We had an incredible time in our five days at the barn. It's a perfect location for day trips all over Tuscany or a great place to relax on the terrace or by the pool. The barn is beautiful--great decor, large open space downstairs, incredible outdoor space, private bathrooms, comfortable beds. The barn has its own private garden and feels secluded from the rest of the property. The place is just dripping with Tuscan charm--pictures cannot do it justice.

Be sure to have Serena cook for you, her meals were a highlight of our trip... great for families as she takes care of everything and you can enjoy conversation and the sunset while she prepares everything. Very special. Thanks Corin, Jacky, Cosimo and Serena!

Car: necessary

Wonderful combination of rolling hills with scattered old tuscan style farm houses. Everywhere are rows of vines sometimes interspersed with olive tree groves and in spring with bright yellow sun flowers waving in the sunshine.

Less than 30 minutes from the house one can be in the centre of the beautiful old city of Siena. Here it is possible to explore or just unwind and dine.
