Art & landscape
Il Baroncino stands alone among the rolling hills, in 8 hectares of private land, with many age-old chestnut and oak trees. It is a large country house with several smaller adjacent buildings, such as the former chestnut barn, the wood store and a hay barn.
All in all, there is around 800 m2 living space. In times gone by, 15 people lived and worked on this estate, now there is only one family of three occupying part of the main house.
Today the estate houses three self-contained holiday apartments: the two very large units PRATOLINO (160 m2) and I CARRI (130 m2) are located in the main house, while the smaller unit PATIO (30 m2) can be found in part of the annex. Each apartment has its own outdoor area: PRATOLINO has a lawn in front of the kitchen, I CARRI a gazebo, PATIO a large and private terrace.
The friendly owner has completely renovated her house in a most commendable manner, with a great eye for detail. The apartments have been tastefully designed and furnished. Terracotta floors, a few warm wooden floors and open wooden beam-work create a homely atmosphere. Some of the brick and stone door frames have also been exposed. The interior style is a successful combination of the traditional and the modern. A selection of antique furniture contrasts harmoniously with the Mediterranean shades of color on the walls: warm apricot and faded blue and lilac lend the apartment a modern tone.
In the middle of the lawn, there is a delightful pool with sun-lounges. It has been built in the former manure reservoir, is 10 x 5 m in size and heated. The pool is used by guests and owner alike.
From the garden, the eye roams across a wide field, coming to rest upon the wonderful Renaissance castle, Castello di Celsa - an architectural jewel by the famous Baldassare Peruzzi - and wanders into the distance to enjoy the silhouette of Siena.
The helpful owners of the house speak English and French and will provide you with good tips.
Il Baroncino is a beautiful choice if rented together by a group of 12 people: some metres from the house there is a large shared summer kitchen (50 m2) located in the former hay barn, which is available to all guests. Here you will find a barbecue and long wooden table suitable to seat 12 people.
The property is somewhat out of the way (200 m from the main road) accessible via a private drive. Its excellent, solitary position guarantees peace, quiet and outstanding panoramic views over the wide Siena countryside. The area around Baroncino has remained unspoiled, in its natural beauty - forests and fields as far as the eye can see. This is a wonderful place for walking, particularly during spring and fall.
Additional amenities: Additional shared summer kitchen in a barn with barbecue grill and large table, Dog welcome, Kitchen with cooker and fridge, Pool area is gated, Pool: 5 x 10m / shared pool, Seated outdoor area for each unit either on a terrace, under a gazebo or on a lawn
