A long driveway, dramatically lined with centuries-old cypress trees, leads up to the impressive Castello built in the Middle Ages, then extended during the renaissance into an aristocratic residence, private chapel and tower and is situated in a panoramic position on private hiltop. The property has belonged to the same family for centuries and lies at the center of a large estate where the family produce Chianti wine and olive oil, which is available for purchase directly from the farm. The Castello has recently been carefully renovated, preserving the original rooms just as they have always been, with antique furniture, large 17th century stone fireplaces, splendid floors made in terracotta, stone and marble. It is, however, equipped with every modern convenience: Air condition system, central heating, Internet connection, satellite TV, and laundry service ( AIR CONDITION and HEATING are EXTRA ).
The garden, which overlooks the valley, is surrounded by centuries-old trees, and on the stone panoramic terrace you will find a large swimming pool (16x6 m) with a Roman staircase lined with mosaics, two bathroom/dressing rooms, and plenty of lounging furniture. Next to the pool area is also a hydro massage pool (3.5x2.5 m). From here you also access the gymnasium. The entire terrace is brilliantly lit up at night by large, wrought iron lamps.
