Lovely villa in the Chianti Classico

Casale Barberino is located in the most coveted region of Tuscany, in the western Chianti, one of the most beautiful stretches of land in central Tuscany - in the Val d'Elsa. It lies in a picturesque oasis amidst its own woodland and olive groves in a peaceful setting with views across the valley towards the medieval village of Sant´Appiano. Whilst being delightfully secluded the house is easily accessible to Sant´Appiano (next restaurant) 2 minutes by car away, Barberino Val d'Elsa 5 minutes to the north, and Poggibonsi just 10 minutes to the south. In Barberino and Poggibonsi you find all kind of shops. Florence and Siena are both within an easy drive via the motorway, 35 minutes, with the famous San Gimignano just 25 minutes to the south-west. The access to the house is pratical and easy: a short drive on a white access road joins to the main road just 700 metres away.

The estate cultivates the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the house. You can purchase the products of two fattorias (farms) belonging to the owner: Chianti DOCG, Rosso and Bianco IGT, Super Tuscan, Vinsanto, Grappa, Grappa Riserva, olive oil, Laudemio oil in the Barberino fattoria, as well as Sangiovese, Sangiovese Riserva and Biancodi Romagna of the Ravenna fattoria. The family of the owner produces wine since more than 500 years.

The villa has been fully refurbished with an ecological theme inside and outside in autumn 2007. The property captivates you with its simple, unpretentious, modern style. Efforts have been taken to select a clear, more contemporary line of furnishings. Nonetheless, the interiors have been decorated in keeping with Tuscan tradition. Materials typical for the region were used during restoration: the clay bricks on the ceilings, the wood used for doors as well as the heavy roof beams create a sense of warmth and cosiness. The layout and the decoration was a project of the property owner Letizia. She invested a lot of time and love in choosing the right colors for the wall paint varying from Mediterranean yellow, apricot, light blue to cheerful orange. The entire building is laid out on just one level, a rarity in Tuscany! The light and airy rooms each have their own patio door to the gardens, that's comfort.

Extensive lawns, olive groves and mature woodland surround the property with views across the valley. There are two large paved terraces immediately outside the house with shaded seating for outdoor dining with barbecue: on the south side there is a patio with large table for al fresco dining, on the north side there is a smaller patio with a smaller table where you can watch the children playing in the pool while you are relaxing with a glass of Chianti.

Additional amenities: 5-ring gas hob, Airport distance:Florence 40 km Pisa 90 km Rome 280 km, American coffee machine, Children's pool attached with Jacuzzi, Dog welcome, Electric kettle, Pool: 6 x 12m / salt water pool, Private Chef, Washing machine (located in a separate building)
