Description

Castellina Senese

Location and Surrounding Area

Immersed in a fully-fenced park and perched high on a hill overlooking the medieval town of Monteriggioni,  this magnificent seven-bedroom villa is ideally located to explore Tuscany’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. Situated in the heart of Chianti, just a few kilometers from the charming towns of Florence and Siena, Castellina Senese represents the perfect location for day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and provides a unique opportunity to admire its iconic landscapes while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.

From the terrace of the villa, you can admire the beautiful medieval castle walls that surround the village of Monteriggioni with its fourteen towers that stick out high into the air. A pleasant walking on the "Strade Bianche" that run among the olive groves of the villa, will allow you to enjoy the view the village of San Gimignano, one of Italy’s best-preserved medieval villages.The historic center was designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, and strolling through the cobblestoned streets will make you feel like you have stepped back in time.

From the villa you can easily reach Siena, the medieval walled city famous for the twice annual Palio horse race. You could spend hours wandering through the warren-like maze of streets that branch out from Piazza del Campo, the shell-shaped public square crowned by an iconic bell tower. From the villa you can reach Florence, a treasure trove of art with an astonishing contemporary vibe. Beyond the extraordinary artistic heritage, the best way to enjoy Florence is to stroll along the riverside avenues at sunset or to get lost among the city’s alleyways of the Oltrarno.

For those who want to go off exploring off the main roads and find striking scenic views, a must is a drive to and visit of Volterra. A unique town which combines Etruscan, Roman and Medieval buildings in a single context. The town is known for its alabaster workshops, like Rossi Alabastri, which you can visit to learn more about the craft. Wandering around the historic center, you will find plenty of shops selling items made with this translucent stone.
