<h3>Description</h3> The true understated elegance of TuscanyThis exclusive castle, owned by one of the oldest families of Italy, lies fourteen kilometres west of Siena. It is within easy reach of such cultural gems as Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra and the Chianti area. Lucca, Pisa and Arezzo are about one and a half hours by car and Perugia, Orvieto and Assisi are equally easy day trips. The estate has the quality that dreams are made of. A castle with turrets surrounded by a formal garden, a Renaissance chapel and a beautifully converted conservatory - the this property - look accross the valley towards the skyline of Siena, surrounded by 250 hectares of private land.

It is within easy reach of such cultural gems as Florence, San Gimignano, Volterra and the Chianti area. Lucca, Pisa and Arezzo are about one and a half hours by car and Perugia, Orvieto and Assisi are equally easy day trips. The estate has the quality that dreams are made of. A castle with turrets surrounded by a formal garden, a Renaissance chapel and a beautifully converted conservatory - the this property - look accross the valley towards the skyline of Siena, surrounded by 250 hectares of private land. This Castello is one of Italy's best kept secrets as it is not open to the public, but those fortunate enough to go there are invariably awed by the sheer elegance of its interiors and the mystique that surrounds the place which has not surprisingly been featured in a number of books and publications on the beauties of Tuscany. The true beauty of the estate lies in its silence and the spectacular view over the surrounding countryside, at a stone's throw from the magical city of Siena, a landscape that has not changed for centuries... The former this property, so called because it was a conservatory where lemon trees in terracotta vases were kept in winter, has been restored and furnished with an exquisite sense of harmony, space and comfort. The ground floor consists of a spacious sitting room with French windows, a dining room that sits twelve, a comfortable country kitchen flooded with sunshine where guests like to have breakfast, and a single bedroom with bathroom (with shower). Glass doors lead from the living room and the kitchen onto a charming terraced garden with a pergola for outdoor meals, a large pool and spectacular views towards the skyline of Siena. Old fashioned musk roses, rosemary bushes, cyandrus, yellow broom and blue tinged sage fill the air with their fragrances on the this property's landscaped grounds. The first floor has two double bedrooms with adjoining dressing rooms and en suite bathrooms (with bathtub), two twin-bedded rooms, a single bedroom, two complete bathrooms (one whith bathtub, the other with shower) and an extra WC. Comfortable furniture, the muted colored walls, the comfortable furniture, all blend harmoniously with the well-proportioned architectural features of the house. The house has first class equipment, up market cutlery, crockery and glassware, embroidered bath towels and luxurious bed linens. The pool and the tennis court are for the exclusive use of guests. The pool lies in a terraced area with a magnificent view, surrounded by irrigated lawns. The this property house is the building behind the pool (see photo gallery, house outlined in red). When this property is rented, the owners of Castle will not be in residence, which means that you will have sole use of the magnificent grounds.
