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 6km 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 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 fenced garden is complete with a private 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. 5 marked walks for every walking level.
Other activities the area has to offer include:
- 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 !
