Description

Villa Il Fortino

Location and Surrounding Area

Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent restored property is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With charming views of the Chianti hills and the surrounding countryside, this seven-bedroom property is the perfect location for unforgettable day trips to the most beautiful towns in Tuscany and provides a unique opportunity to admire its splendid landscapes while soaking up the region’s incredibly rich historical and cultural heritage.

The villa is just a few kilometers from San Gimignano, one of the best-preserved medieval towns in Italy. From afar, San Gimignano looks like a town from a Renaissance painting: a circle of 13th-century walls enclosing tall, teetering stone towers. Its towers make it instantly recognizable, but the art treasures held within its walls are just as remarkable. Although the town is small, there is enough art, architecture and fine food to keep you busy for more than one day.

In less than one hour by car, you can reach Florence, a treasure trove of art with an astonishing contemporary vibe. Beyond the extraordinary artistic heritage, a testimony to its centuries of civilization, the best way to enjoy Florence is to stroll along the riverside avenues at sunset, or to get lost among the city’s myriad alleyways of the bohemian Oltrarno or the narrow little streets of San Niccolò, where it feels like you have ended up in another time along its centuries-old walls.

In less than one hour by car, you can also reach the medieval town of Siena. Its ancient red brick buildings, the scallop-shaped main square Piazza del Campo and the Cathedral Square, dominated by the zebra-striped Duomo, make it an absolute must for anyone traveling to Tuscany. Effectively an open-air museum celebrating the Gothic, Siena boasts secular monuments that have retained both their medieval forms and their exceptional art collections, providing plenty to marvel at.

In just one hour by car, you can reach Volterra, one of Tuscany’s most dramatic hilltop towns. Despite its many attractions, Volterra sees fewer tourists than other Tuscan towns, so you can expect to share its winding stone streets with locals and explore its ancient sites without crowds. Founded by the Etruscans and surrounded by medieval walls, Volterra has a notable historic center filled with fascinating Roman ruins, medieval buildings and alabaster workshops.

In less than two hours by car, you can reach Pisa, exceptionally well-known for its Leaning Tower. Moving between its alleys and riversides you will discover architectural jewels such as Santa Maria della Spina, the headquarters of the Scuola Normale Superiore in Piazza dei Cavalieri, the exhibitions of Palazzo Blu and the magnetic charm of Piazza dei Miracoli. Start from the Baptistery and head to the 130-meter Camposanto Monumentale overlooking the square.

Villa Il Fortino is 37 km from Florence Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, 79 km from Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport, 126 km from Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport and 309 km from Rome Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. San Gimignano is 24 km from the villa, Montaione is 30 km, Florence is 35 km, Siena is 49 km, Volterra is 52 km, Pisa is 84 km, Livorno is 90 km, Lucca is 101 km.

The Property

Set in a serene countryside of gently rolling hills, Villa Il Fortino provides the perfect retreat for those seeking complete privacy and relaxation in the heart of Tuscany, in the Chianti area. With wonderful views of the surrounding olive groves and vineyards, this magnificent villa has been masterfully restored while preserving the atmosphere of a traditional Tuscan farmhouse. Offering warm spaces, Villa Il Fortino can accommodate thirteen guests (plus one extra guest on request at no additional cost) featuring seven bedrooms (six double bedrooms and one single room) with en-suite bathroom spread over two floors. A guest house featuring one twin room with bathroom is available on request.

Garden and Swimming Pool. Il Fortino has a large garden with olive trees and armchairs looking towards the pool. In the old stone courtyard of the villa, surrounded by laurel bushes, you will find comfortable armchairs and a large table under a gazebo covered by fox-grape vines for outdoor dining. At the further end of the garden there is a large marble-topped table, lighting and a barbecue. The villa boasts a large swimming pool and a generous poolside area furnished with comfortable sun loungers inviting guests to sit back and unwind.

Living Rooms. The villa has two large and bright living rooms on the upper floor where you can spend pleasant moments of total relaxation, surrounded by the tranquility of the landscape and illuminated by the warm rays of the sun. The living rooms are furnished with comfortable sofas and armchairs and through the arched windows you can glimpse the access road to the villa with its tall cypress trees. In one of the living rooms there is a magnificent stone fireplace.

Dining Room and Kitchen. The large dining room in the villa is the ideal place for enjoying the typical dishes of the region. There is, in fact, a large table perfect for lunches or dinners, but also for an afternoon snack. The furnishings of the dining room boast an antique style characterized by sideboards and antique wooden cupboards. In the summer period you can comfortably eat outside the villa: you can use the large gazebo in the courtyard which has a large dining table. The kitchen is equipped with professional stoves, an industrial dishwasher, double refrigerator and a marble-topped table.
