Overview

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!

About Jérôme GLORIE through my aromatic herbs farming company : Agricola FontelaValle

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.

Jérôme GLORIE through my aromatic herbs farming company : Agricola FontelaValle purchased this villa in 1999

Why Jérôme GLORIE through my aromatic herbs farming company : Agricola FontelaValle chose Siena Province

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.

What makes this villa unique

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...

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 stayed at Jerome’s home for 5 nights and we wish it could have been twice as long. The home and grounds are absolutely stunning. This portion of our trip was sandwiched between Rome & Venice and after the hustle & bustle of Rome this place was just perfect for winding down and just taking in the beauty of Tuscany. With Castellina just minutes away (hit the market on Saturdays) along with San Gimignano & Siena within an hour Florence more or less became an afterthought. We found once we were in the hills we wanted to stay there. We were lucky enough to have two meals prepared by Filomena which were both excellent & bountiful. Watching the sunsets every evening as a group was the perfect cap on every day along with fires in the fireplace. Thank you so much to Jerome for allowing us to share his home, the memories will last a lifetime.

Amazing stay!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Casa Le Pigne for 7 nights. It was an amazing stay! The house and land are beautiful and the location could not be better. It is well situated for many day trips, we went to Florence, Siena and San Gimignano and also several wineries in the area.

The house itself has 4 large bedrooms and several of the bedrooms even have sinks in them. The kitchen and living area were nice and we enjoyed several fires in the fireplace. Definitely made for a perfect trip!

Simply wonderful

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Casa Le Pigne for 3 weeks and have loved every minute of it. Very nice and clean home, amazing surroundings and best ever swimming pool. Would loved to have stayed longer. It is strategically located between Florence and Siena with lots of small wonderful towns nearby to explore. It is everything that Tuscany has to offer. Filomena (who made us some lovely tiramisu) and her staff, and Jerome himself, are very friendly, incredibly responsive and accommodating. Wonderful!

Monsieur Glorie,

Eh bien voilà….nous avons tous repris le collier après ces merveilleuses vacances. Je voulais au nom de toute notre famille vous faire part de notre bonheur d’avoir grâce à vous et à vos merveilleuses et accueillantes installations pu profiter pleinement de ce splendide pays. Je ne vous cache pas que certains d’entre nous étaient fort émus au moment de partir et soyez sûr que nous garderons longtemps le souvenir de ces 15 jours passés à la Casa Le Pigne.

Merci,

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 (Chianti3darchery.com). They also organise Tuscan cooking lessons in English, German and of course Italian.
