Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Il Romito is situated in one of the most attractive districts of the Sienese Chianti Classico area, just 15 km from Siena and 11 km from Castelnuovo Berardenga. It is reached from the little village of Pianella, following a picturesque country road that unwinds between vineyards and olive groves, and it commands a magnificent view over the beautiful surrounding countryside. Il Romito is a typical farmhouse, entirely renovated and fully equipped with satellite TV, stereo with CD player, dishwasher, washing machine, central heating, barbecue and microwave oven. Entering from a typical stone loggia, the interior extends over two floors furnished with impeccable taste using antique and traditional Tuscan pieces. In the garden guests have at their exclusive disposal a fine swimming pool and a fully-furnished outdoor area. All essential services can be found in the nearby village of Pianella (4 km), while close by guests can find excellent restaurants offering Tuscan cuisine and numerous vineyards where they can taste and purchase the famous Chianti wines. The stretch of road between Gaiole in Chianti and Siena (25 km away), which also passes through Pianella, is particularly attractive, dotted with intriguing castles that can be visited and little hamlets that have remained unchanged down the centuries.
Excluding basement floor only.

The Tuscany region
History, culture, natural beauty, crystal waters, dazzling beaches...and food to die for. Italy really does have it all. From Venice's architectural jewels in the north to Puglia's sun soaked olive growths in the south, there's something for everyone in this country of infinite variety.
Whether you choose to spend your time exploring the Adriatic Coast, with its white sands and dramatic promontories, or the gentle rolling hills of Umbria, where almost every view is reminiscent of a Renaissance painting, your time in Italy will be time well spent.
And let's not forget the Italian Lakes, whose serene and ageless splendour has beguiled visitors for centuries. As has the island charm and Sicily and Sardinia, two very different yet equally enchanting holiday destinations. Last, but by no means least, is there any other city on the planet that can match Rome for its combination of ancient history and cosmopolitan style?
Prepare to relax in the most enchanting surrounds you have ever seen...
The Italian countryside is the place to enjoy an authentic experience, to appreciate the real old traditional flavours, or just to watch life go slowly and peacefully by. The Tuscan hills, historical villages, cellars where you can taste some of the regions greatest wines. The world famous towns of Florence and Siena, as well as many other beautiful, well loved Tuscan towns like Pisa, Volterra and Montelpulciano all within a short drive.
The Chianti countryside, where you will find many of Tuscany's most charming locations, such as San Gimignano, has been a popular destination for international travellers for many years and we are delighted to welcome them all to our portfolio.
