About this listing
Castagnatello is a delightfully restored country house wonderfully situated between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d’Orcia.
The Castagno apt. has 3 spacious bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, kitchen, living room, covered patio and terrace
THE COUNTRY HOUSE:
Castagnatello, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, offers breathtaking views of the nearby hamlet of Seggiano and of the green rolling hills at the foot of the Amiata Mountain.
Castagnatello has five apartments furnished to high standards, each one with its own independent entrance and all offering private panoramic terraces or covered patios that open directly to the charming garden that surrounds the estate.
For guests enjoyment there is a spacious infinity swimming pool (16mx8m) with great views, and two big stone made BBQs.
Every apartment has its own private space outside to have a meal or just to relax and enjoy the view. The garden that surrounds the property is shared, and so is the pool area.
Interaction with Guests
We live nearby (a 5 min walk), and we come normally once a day to the Country House for the pool and garden maintenance. We do not like to intrude in our guests holidays, and try to be around just enough to be useful.
WHAT TO DO IN OUR AREA
Castagnatello sits at the top of a hill at 500m above sea level, and offers a cooler and dryer climate than other places nearer to Siena, located at lower altitudes.
We are also magnificently located as a starting point
to visit charming places in southern Tuscany like the Val d’Orcia and its lovely villages (Unesco World Heritage site);
to enjoy the renowned wine producing areas of Montalcino and Montepulciano;
to spend a day out hiking on the cooler Amiata Mountain with its BBQ areas and natural parks;
or to spend it at the beach, which is just 1 our away, visiting beautiful seaside villages like Castiglione della Pescaia.
Other Things to Note
Please note that during high season (July and August) our rentals are weekly from Saturday to Saturday
Prior to arriving, Nathan was in regular contact with us making sure everything was all setup for our visit. He was available to answer questions and made us very comfortable prior to our arrival.
We we did arrive, we were met by Nathan's wife who showed us around the house, gave us some great ideas of things to do in the area and offered to make a dinner reservation for us. Nathan joined us later, introduced us to his wine collection and made sure all of our questions were answered.
Their houses were just what we needed with lots of space, incredibly clean and having everything we needed. We loved our stay and cannot wait to return. Thanks Nathan!!
