Siena Chianti Farmhouse Flat
Apartment | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Immersed in the country but within walking distance of Castellina in Chianti, a 150 sq.m. apartment in an old stone, Chianti farmhouse with its own big, enclosed private garden. The rooms are all large, the ceilings are beamed and terracotta tiled, floors terracotta tiled. From every window there is a view of the countryside and its cypresses, olives, oaks, fields.
There are two double bedrooms with a double bed and a single bed. There is a large sitting room with armchairs and two comfortable Edwardian wrought iron sofas, which make up into equally comfortable beds. The diningroom has a large open fireplace, piano and television. The kitchen is large and is equipped with all that is necessary for full self catering and entertaining.
Our house is furnished in a style that compliments the architecture, though not slavishly so.
The Chianti is rightly famous for its natural beauty, as well as its wine. The local governments jealously protect the area against any type of development or modernisation that infringes on its historic and natural beauty. The roads in our area are all unasphalted. They are the old "white" roads, as called in Italian - the original gravel roads that ran through this wild, rocky, forest area. The forests around us are populated with wild boar, deer, fox and porcupine amongst others. However, none of these animals are harmful and difficult to come by during the day, the forests thus making for wonderful walks and bird spotting.
A car is fundamental as we are about 2 kms from the nearest bus stop, and 3 kms from Castellina in Chianti, with its bars, restaurants, shops and all around us are the wine estates. We are 22kms from the medieval walled town of Siena, and 37kms from Florence.
Should you be looking for somewhere where you can relax after a day's sightseeing, visiting museums, exploring hill towns, trekking in the Tuscan woods or cycling along country lanes then we are perfect. We have no neighbours. Here there are only the calls of the birds, the barking of the deer, and grunting of the wild boar to disturb the quiet.
