An elegant Tuscan farmhouse with glorious views

Casa Monticello is an elegant Tuscan farmhouse with glorious views over the rolling hills of Chianti. Art lovers will be exposed to an illimited choice of interesting excurtions. The location is ideal - between Florence and Siena and close to Certaldo, Montespertoli and San Gimignano, in the very heart of Chianti. One hour of driving takes you to the sandy beaches south of Pisa. Food lovers will no doubt succumb to the sophisticated simplicity of Tuscan cuisine. Trattorias, restaurants and a supermarket can be found in Montespertoli in a 15 minutes drive.

An typically rough road of 1.8 km leads to Casa Monticello through vineyards and olive groves. Although a 4x4 car is not necessary, the road is not recommended for sport low-slung balance cars. The original building dates back a thousand years and is part of the Borgo di Voltiggiano, a group of about ten properties, including the villa of the owner, which is about 300 meters from Casa Monticello. The two properties are separated by gardens and a high hedge and are not connected, ensuring privacy.

Casa Monticello was recently renovated and is beautifully decorated, with comfort and style in mind. The villa is decorated with beautiful terracotta tiles and beamed ceilings. The 2.5 acre property is entirely fenced. The lawn is bordered with rose bushes, cypress and olive trees. A patio by the pool provides shade as well as sun lounges. Attached to the house are two other patios, one furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining and the other burnished with comfortable lounge chairs. The salt-water pool has a solar cover to retain the sun's warmth during the night; however, please be aware that this is not a safety cover for children.

The villa's location only 5 km from the railway station of Castelfiorentino is a good base to visit Florence and Siena even without a car: You can park your car in Castelfiorentio and take the train in both directions. During the week, trains to Florence/Siena and back go regularly (approx. every 1.5 or 2 hours). The train ride takes less than an hour. In Florence the train will take you to the main train station which is right in the centre of Florence - it is just a short walk from the station "Santa Maria Novella" to the Cathedral or the Uffizi. In Siena the railway station is located approx. 3 km from centre, and you have to take a bus to reach the old town on top of the hill. Approx. one hour of driving takes you to the sea.

Additional amenities: 4 mountain bikes (with helmets), Air conditioning throughout except for the kitchen and the second floor reading room, Airport distance:Florence 27 km Pisa 75 km Rome 280 km, CD player, Covered parking inside the property, Electric kettle, Electronic gate, Filter coffee maker, Fitness room located in the basement of the villa, Internet WIFI connection in the villa and by the pool, Iron and ironing board, Juicer, Large refrigerator with freezer, Laundry room (washing machine, dryer, iron, ironing board), Pool: 5 x 10m / salt water pool, Private Chef, Stove with oven
