Year Purchased: 2015
About the owner: Esther and Stefan are Swiss, who have been visiting Tuscany for over 20 years. They enjoy the history, art, architecture, culture, food and wine that the region offers. When the opportunity arose for them to purchase a property on this famous estate they were very much attracted to its peaceful location, as well as its close proximity to the famous historical towns of Tuscany. They bought the beautifull Villa from David and Karen Conti.
Why the Owner Chose Castelnuovo Berardenga, Siena, Italy:
The Villa and its surrounding landscape present even better than the photographs show and the glowing reviews of past guests are testimony for its special appeal. The Villa has been recently restored with the finest Tuscan materials and provides superior accommodation and facilities and have a private, heated pool. Villa La Cappella is part of Villa d'Arceno. The antique splendor is still present in every farmhouse and traces of the ancient crafts are to be seen in not much known corners: what strikes today is the splendid harmony of the vines that follow the dancing movements of the hills and encircle with elegance the farmhouses. Unpaved roads and footpaths wind among woods of holm-oaks and amazing alleys with cypress trees: who lives in these places breathes history and finds again peace and harmony, thanks to a respected nature. You'll find more information on http://www.arceno.it/en/history/ With your holidays at Villa La Cappella you support YMCAs (Founded in 1844 by George Willimas in London) as a non-profit organisation. Esther & Stefan invest there payments into youth.
