Castagnatello is a delightfully restored country house immersed in the Tuscan countryside, wonderfully situated between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d'Orcia. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, Castagnatello offers breathtaking views of the nearby hamlet of Seggiano and of the green rolling hills at the foot of the Amiata Mountain.
Castagnatello has five apartments furnished to high standards, each one with its own independent entrance and all offering private panoramic terraces or covered patios that open directly to the charming garden that surrounds the estate.
The Castagno apartment is on 2 floors, for 7 (excluding extra beds), with 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 en-suite bathrooms, kitchen, living room, a covered patio that opens directly into the panoramic garden and a spacious terrace that offers stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
For guests enjoyment there is a spacious infinity swimming pool (16mx8m) with great views, and two big stone made BBQs. Within the surrounding garden there is a separate Tasting House were fine wines and local gastronomy tastings are organised for enthusiastic guests.
We live nearby (a 5 min walk), and we come normally once a day to the Country House for the pool and garden maintenance. We do not like to intrude in our guests holidays, and try to be around just enough to be useful.

Castagnatello sits at the top of a hill at 500m above sea level, and offers a cooler and dryer climate than other places nearer to Siena, located at lower altitudes.

to enjoy the renowned wine producing areas of Montalcino and Montepulciano;
to spend a day out hiking on the cooler Amiata Mountain with its BBQ areas and natural parks;
or to spend it at the beach, which is just 1 our away, visiting beautiful seaside villages like Castiglione della Pescaia.
