Crete Senesi – Chianciano – Tuscany

7 Bedrooms - Pool

Crete Senesi sit in an opening in a wooded grove surrounded by old oak trees which blend sun and shade on the lawn in front of it. Beyond are open fields and views across the valley to the Radicofani fortress on the far-away blue hills. On the ground floor what used to be the cows’ barn has been converted into a large summer room leading out to the garden. Seven windows flood the room with light, the mangers have been turned into benches with cushions. An open fireplace, comfortable sofas and armchairs make this room pleasantly informal and comfortable. A double room with an en-suite bathroom opens out onto the garden and has been adapted for wheel chair use. A spiral Renaissance-style travertine staircase leads to the upper floor, where a central living room with windows looking out on both sides, a fireplace and a large African hardwood dining table leads into a big Tuscan kitchen with an old beam and local travertine hood running along one wall. A waist-high fireplace is a local feature which makes it easy to cook over the fire. The kitchen walls have been painted a stunning blue lime wash in the characteristic style of the old kitchens in peasant farms, as blue was supposed to keep the flies away in the summer. As you will see from the plan of the house two bedrooms have en suite bathrooms while two share a bathroom. The garden has been designed to blend in naturally with the surroundings. Climbing roses, hydrangea petiolaris, lavender, cystus, rosemary and honeysuckle mix well with the old oak and fruit trees. Meals can be taken under a pergola covered by wisteria, roses and grapevines. A 10 by 5 meter pool is tucked away at the far end of the garden. A small house, which used to be the pig pen, hen house and ox barn, Casa del Fattore, and is now a charming and cosy loft with old tie beams and a large fireplace, is rented together with Crete Senesi during the pool season, to ensure the pool’s exclusive use.
