About the Property

4 Br, 9 sleeps, 3 Bathr, huge livingr, large terrace with view over the hills

Casa Le Pigne is an enchanting 2000sq ft, single-level villa situated in a peaceful and panoramic position (600m altitude), overlooking the forests and gentle hills of the Chianti Classico wine region of Tuscany.
The property is private and calm (nearest neighbour about 500m away) and at 5km from the historic village of Castellina in Chianti. Castellina is world famous for Rocca delle Macie wine, along with hundreds of other tasteful wines. Castellina is also well known for its antique shops, delicious restaurants and the Saturday weekly market.
The villa consists of:
- 4 bedrooms each with 2 single confortable beds (can be joined as King size)
*total beds : 9 + 1 sofabed (2 sleeps)
*total sleeps : 11 + 1 baby bed
- 1 full bathroom with double sinks, bath tub, bidet, shower and WC
- 2 ¾ bathroom with shower, sink and WC
- 2 bedrooms have a sink
- fully equipped brand new (2014) kitchen
- large living/dining room with a fireplace (500sq ft)
There are 2 terraces (one covered) equipped with tables and chairs for dining outdoor and enjoying the view.
(A delicious, traditional Tuscan meal of your choice can be arranged by Filomena, the House keeper, upon request)
The impressive 7-acre garden is complete with a private and fenced 6 by 16m swimming pool. All is perfect for taking time out to lounge while sipping a glass of local chianti wine or spumante.
Surrounding the estate is more than 250-acres of wild countryside for unforgettable hikes immersed in untouched nature.
Other activities the area has to offer include:
- sightseeing
- horseback riding
- wine tasting and vineyard tours
- culinary tours and cooking lessons
- archery lessons and 3D trail
- thermal baths and spas
- village fairs
- harvest season tours and visits (September and October)
The main tourism season stretches from mid-April to the end of October with July and August being peak months. A great time to visit Tuscany is in the quieter part of the season: May or June for beautiful weather and less crowds and of course September and October during the harvest time to experience the wine making, right in the cellar where the activity takes place. I enjoy November at harvest and olive oil processing.

Casa Le Pigne is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday with friends and family!

The Chianti area in Tuscany is world famous for its great 'Chianti classico' wine and delicious food. Castellina is offering several good restaurants, including one gorgeous 1 star Michelin. I suggest booking a wine tasting by Nittardi, just 2km from our home, or at the Fattoria La Ripa for organic wines, and a guided tour of some of the Chianti Classico vineyards. Visiting Monteriggioni, San Gimignano, Volterra, Siena and of course Florence are a must.

Our nice neighbors (2km) have a nice and very realistic 3D archery trail, they rent bows and Fabian provides lessons ( They also organise Tuscan cooking lessons in English, German and of course Italian.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: I'm Jerome, about 63, I live and work in Brussels, Belgium. Education in Law and Criminology in UCL (Leuven) and Montreal, Canada. I work now as Director general of the Belgian Civil Protection - Ministry of Home affairs - in Belgium. My previous job was in the Crime Prevention. I begun as lawyer at the Bar. I love nature and culture, and therefore is Tuscany a perfect match. I produce (bio certified) aromatic Herbs, essential Oils and a delicious tasty Honey in Castellina. with those high quality products i make my own Cosmetics : anti-aging, sensitive skin care and body milk.

Why the Owner Chose Castellina In Chianti SI, Italy:
I love Italy since i'm a teen. The sounds, smells, tastes and flavours, all..., and I discovered Tuscany at 18. An immediate 'coup de foudre'. It was always my dream to buy a house here, in the forest and wild surroundings. i'm so happy to stay here, walking around and growing aromatic plants to produce my organic essential oil. People here are fantastic, helpful, hard workers and inspired.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The Chianti area: fine wines and good food, The view, the nature, the air, the Magic Cypress Circle, the 10 feet high Mushroom. All the italian Renaissance culture at your fingertips ! I come here every winter and i adore this season : fresh air, clear light, less people so i can see more wild animals, also the smell of the open fire...
