Description

San Donato is an exquisite gem set in rolling Chianti vineyards with views that stretch 360 degrees past a nearby 13th century hill town to Siena and into infinity.

Part of the original estate of Villa Arceno, San Donato has a history that goes back many 100's of years, originally owned by the important and influential Piccolomini family (who have sent more than one Pope to Rome!) It has been lovingly restored in recent years by its owners who are designers and live in New York.

Thus the interiors are filled with an artful blend of modern and ancient with carefully chosen antiques and discreetly placed modern conveniences. Every detail has been carefully considered and positioned to create an atmosphere of refined elegance, luxury and comfort with a New York lean on cutting edge good taste.

Accommodation: One approaches the house from behind and comes around the corner to find a patio that looks on to an unobstructed view and a garden, lovingly planted with lavender,

San Donato is an exquisite gem set in rolling Chianti vineyards with views that stretch 360 degrees past a nearby 13th century hill town to Siena and into infinity.

It has been lovingly restored in recent years by its owners who are designers and live in New York.

Thus the interiors are filled with an artful blend of modern and ancient with carefully chosen antiques and discreetly placed modern conveniences. Every detail has been carefully considered and positioned to create an atmosphere of refined elegance, luxury and comfort with a New York lean on cutting edge good taste.

Accommodation: One approaches the house from behind and comes around the corner to find a patio that looks on to an unobstructed view and a garden, lovingly planted with lavender, rosemary, olive trees and other local flora. There is also a nice stretch of rolling green lawn. The garden is beautifully manicured and up kept by the estate gardener.

Entering the house through the patio doors one steps into a living room with a fireplace and elegant beige sofas, there are antique prints hanging on the walls and an over whelming sense of soothing refinement. There is an antique cabinet with a C.D. player, Satellite television w/English & US channels including CNN & CNBC, Wi-Fi internet connection.

This room leads to the open plan Kitchen and dining area. The kitchen is fully equipped for even the most discerning cooks and fitted out with exquisite majolica tiles and a dishwasher. On this level, discreetly tucked beneath the stairs, there is also a half bathroom with the washing machine.

Upstairs one finds 2 bedrooms and a luxurious bath with large soaking tub. San Donato di Villa Arceno has been converted from an old hay barn and so the upstairs windows retain memories of this in the very unusual and beautiful terracotta fret work that sits behind the glass, creating both shade and privacy whilst allowing those inside to gaze out at will.

Every window has an incredible view and especially the master bedroom. The beds are antique Senese wrought iron with the highest quality linens that have been chosen with extreme care, the bathroom is all handmade glazed white tile with heated towel rails and a hair dryer.

The master bedroom has a Queen size bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. San Donato di Villa Arceno is not suitable for pets.

The house has thick stonewalls & is well ventilated on a breezy hilltop and thus stays comfortably cool in summer. For autumn and winter there is central heating throughout.

Garden and Swimming pool: Approaching the villa you will feel immersed in the green of the countryside surrounding. The garden is a perfectly manicured lawn offering unobstructed views from the patio fully equipped to eat and relax outside. The location also allows undisturbed walks through the vineyards.

Although the neighbours share the pool with San Donato, the pool is in a separate garden and does not at all intrude on the peace and tranquillity of the private garden attached to San Donato or the view, which stretches away over rolling Chianti hills.

The neighbours themselves are placed also behind and away, across a small private road and their gardens look in a completely different direction. The feeling is one of seclusion and serenity.

“wonderful and peaceful place”

Reviewed 8 Aug 2014

San Donato is very quiet, a very beautiful place, the garden and all the Villa Arceno aera are amazing, the house is simple but comfortable, and with a soul, as if you ever know this place, I will return one day, for sure...
