Tuscany - Castellina in Chianti
Location and Surrounding Area
Immersed in the peaceful Tuscan countryside, this magnificent recently-restored estate is ideally located to explore the region’s cultural highlights and most spectacular natural wonders. With wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, this exclusive 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.
Tenuta Castellina neighbors on some of the most prestigious wine producers in Tuscany. Just down the road is Fonterutoli, a charming historic hamlet where visitors can opt for a wine tasting. In the opposite direction lies Castellina in Chianti, a charming town with plenty of activities to merit multiple visits. Enjoy a stroll through the town’s medieval tunnel followed up by shopping the bottegas and a trip to a gelateria. In the summer, the town’s piazzas are the perfect setting for a dinner immersed in scenes of true Tuscan life.
In half an hour by car, you can 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 less than one hour by car, you can reach 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 property is also a few kilometers from 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 just one hour by car, you can also 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.

Found amidst the breathtaking hills of the world-famous Chianti wine region, Tenuta Castellina is a 17th-century estate offering peace and relaxation. Recently restored and reopened, this magnificent estate boasts two beautifully-renovated century structures: an authentic Tuscan farmhouse and a granary. It is the ideal home base for families with children, groups, and romantic escapists looking for a private retreat into the Tuscan countryside. The estate can accommodate fourteen guests in the main house and the granary.
Tucked into the south side of the oak forested Cambolli hill, Tenuta Castellina is an intimately private retreat cradled by forested hills, breathtaking skies, and rural horizons. Offering the perfect blend of contemporary comforts and traditional luxuries, both buildings feature master and junior suites with king-size beds, fluffy duvets and crisp sheets. Eco-friendly and utterly divine, Tenuta Castellina is powered with solar panel systems, using 100% renewable energy and rainwater harvesting.
Panoramic views over noble vineyards, silver olive groves and wild oak forests transport guests into a world so magical it must be seen to be believed. Outside, this magnificent property boasts an exclusive pool and a generous poolside area furnished with comfortable sun loungers inviting guests to sit back and unwind. The multiple al fresco dining areas are irresistible in the warmer months, inviting guests to enjoy a cocktail hour spritz or a summer barbeque under the stars.
The convivial living rooms welcome world-weary travelers to kick up their feet and relax into the dolce far niente, the Italian art of doing nothing. Food and wine connoisseurs will love the custom Tuscan kitchen in the main house where delicious Italian meals and lively conversation take place around a large farm table. Imagine a morning painting the Tuscan vistas followed by an afternoon of leisurely reading by the pool, al fresco dining at sunset and stargazing long after dark.
Main House (5 Double Bedrooms):
The main house can accommodate 10 guests. Lovingly restored in 2017, the 5-bedroom authentic Tuscan farmhouse beckons its guests to curl up in front of its fireplace in the winter, or unwind in the crystalline pool in the summer.

Finely-crafted Tuscan antiques were sourced from around the region and refurbished, and include custom-made hand-carved wood furniture and fine artifacts: large mirrors, elegant tables, finely upholstered chairs and seating, ornate sideboards, and chandeliers. Each en-suite bathroom has been outfitted with Italian Tuscan marble and travertine stone.

Recently restored in 2020, this building has its own unique history housing the farm animals that lived on the property in the Middle Ages. With two spacious master bedrooms, a generous indoor living area and stunning outdoor dining area surrounded by breathtaking countryside views, the Granary is perfect for creating lasting memories shared with loved ones.
Guests are greeted with a sumptuously-decorated open living and dining room replete with original stone backdrop, a fully-equipped custom chef kitchen with Bardiglio grey Italian marble countertops and kitchen island, and pergola-covered outdoor dining area with a large travertine table. On the upper level, both master suites benefit from magnificent countryside views and large en-suite bathrooms with double showers. The real treat at the Granary lies in its outdoor spaces.
