Description

PODERE CASANOVA - BARBERINO TAVARNELLE

7 Bedrooms

Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent seven-bedroom property is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With wonderful views of the surrounding greenery, this exclusive 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 stone’s throw away 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.

The villa is just a few kilometres from 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.

The villa is also few kilometres from 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 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 centre filled with fascinating Roman ruins, medieval buildings and alabaster workshops.

Podere Casanova is 43 km from Florence Amerigo Vespucci International Airport, 94 km from Pisa Galileo Galilei International Airport, 136 km from Bologna Guglielmo Marconi Airport, and 309 km from Rome Leonardo da Vinci International Airport. Panzano is 8 km from the villa, San Gimignano is 31 km, Florence is 41 km, Siena is 50 km, Volterra is 53 km, Arezzo is 101 km, Pienza is 101 km, Montepulciano is 109 km, Pisa is 121 km, and Perugia is 153 km.

The Property
Built in the 15th century and used as a fortress by the Florentines to protect against the marauding Sienese, Podere Casanova is unique in Renaissance history and represents an oasis of tranquillity just a stone’s throw away from Florence. With breathtaking views over the green Tuscan hills, the property is the ideal place to enjoy a holiday in the company of family and friends. Set on a gentle hill, this magnificent villa has been masterfully restored. Offering an elegant atmosphere, Podere Casanova can sleep fourteen guests in seven double bedrooms with en-suite bathroom spread across the main villa and the guest house.

Surrounded by a generous garden designed by Italy’s leading sustainable gardener, the property boasts an exclusive infinity pool and a spacious paved poolside area with comfortable sun loungers. With a calm atmosphere, the poolside area represents an idyllic spot for basking in the sun while taking in the stunning views of the countryside. Outdoors you will also find a barbecue area complete with pizza oven, and a fire pit, so that guests can spend time together while enjoying the panorama. The property also features a tennis court and a gym serviced by adjoining bathrooms and washrooms in a separate tennis pavilion.

With an exquisite blend of period charm and modern comfort, this splendid private estate comprises a main villa and guest house that have been carefully restored with travertine and terracotta floors, bespoke kitchens with European appliances, and Carrara marble bathrooms. The main villa features a kitchen and butler’s pantry with Gaggenau appliances, two dishwashers, and multiple fridges and cooktops, ideal for preparing Tuscan feasts prepared by your own personal chef. Meals can be enjoyed in the dining room or in the adjoining loggia, which boasts spectacular sunset views.

Filled with fabulous modern furniture and exposed wooden beams, the main villa houses areas designed for leisure time with your fellow guests. The main villa features four double bedrooms with air conditioning and en-suite bathroom with shower – one featuring a free-standing bathtub as well. You will find three bedrooms upstairs and one downstairs, as well as a formal lounge room, living room with TV and winter garden. One of the bedrooms upstairs boasts a freestanding bathtub and also a shower in the bathroom.
