Property description

'Casa Campana' (The Bellhouse), a recently renovated 17th century quarrystone house, is part of a small privately owned hamlet only 2.2 km from the charming wine producing village of Castellina in Chianti. Castellina is known for its rich history and its shops and restaurants, where locals and visitors gather to celebrate the bounty of the Chianti region. Its central location (35 km to Florence, 25 km to Siena, 150 km to airports in Pisa or Bologna) makes it a perfect starting point for all sightseeing trips.

Set aside on the north end of the estate from the few other houses, 'The Bellhouse' will help you realize your dream of real Tuscan country living. This enchanting stone house built on several levels into the hillside offers a large terrace as well as a vine-covered patio, a private pool (5m x 9m x 1.5m), extended leisure areas with a gazebo and a view of the surrounding hills from its sun-drenched position.

Ground floor: living room with open fireplace, library with satellite TV, DVD player, stereo, CD player, service room with toilet, washing machine, maintenance room.

Two steps down there is a dining room, and fully-equipped, recently remodeled kitchen.

Upstairs: 4 bedrooms: 3 with large beds (two single mattresses in one frame) 2 with ensuite shower and bathroom, and 1 bedroom with two single beds.

The property extends over 86.5 ha (approx. 300 acres) and is part of the natural resort of 'Oasis del Chianti,' the only no-hunting zone in the area with an amazing variety of fauna and flora. An island of absolute peace and privacy and the perfect starting point for short or long tours on local roads through the world famous vineyards, forests and olive groves of the Chianti Classico region.

Its close location to the main highways makes it perfect for all kinds of day excursions to places like Florence, Siena, San Gimignano, Greve, Lucca, Pisa and even for extended day trips to Rome (3.5 hrs. drive) or Venice (3 hrs.).

The house is surrounded by a large, well-maintained garden with dozens of flower pots, ornamental trees (pomegranite, olive, fig, etc.)and citrus fruit trees.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Erin and I bought Casa Campana in 2006 after renting it for several summer vacations. I run a small book publishing house and Erin is a freelance college text editor. We have lived at Casa Campana four months each year since buying it.

Why the Owner Chose Castellina in Chianti, Siena, Italy:
The location is amazing -- close to Florence and Siena, yet in the Chianti Classico wine growing region, one of the most beautiful areas in Italy. Our house is actually in a nature preserve, so we have many birds, deer, boar, etc., and even fireflies during early summer.

The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
The private pool is the best feature in the summer. Most similar rentals offer shared swimming pools, but ours is completely private and has a lovely view to the north towards Florence.
