Its original use was as stable for sheep + goats..

All rooms are handpainted in 2013 in the typical warm colours of a Tuscan country home : shades of yellow and orange. Its rustic ambiente is one of '... once upon the time ... leading you back i time. an unusual setting considering that most similar houses are often renovated in an sterile, non-typical way. On the groundfloor that one may reach by means of some steps up from the terrace the spacious kitchen is located. Fully equipped with 4flame gas stove, oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer combination , American & Italian coffeemaker etc. etc. there is even room for a dining table. On the right 2 bedrooms (each with double matrasse, mosquito screens) as well as the bathroom with shower/wc + hair dryer. Through one of the bedrooms some steps lead down to the charming diningroom/sittingroom. It large panoramic windows and doors, that lead to the terrasse, give it that particular wintergarden flair. All buildings are set in an extended wellcared garden park of more then 2 ha- the pride of the German owner. Cascades of flowers, rose bushes, citrus fruits as well as the surrounding meadows with many rare types of orchids and wild herbs create the unforgettable image of a lost paradise. Animated is this small paradise by various cats, 2 freeroaming wellbehaved dogs (1 male, 1 lively female), a pictoresque small herd of cameroon sheep, chicken, geese, ducks, pigeons and more. Stunning the variaty of birds and butterflies as well as fireflies. And with a bit of patience one may also see wild boars, deer and roe deer, foxes, badgers and porcupines as well as the rare Tuscan eagle that breeds in our valley. The housing complex is surrounded by grass, gravel - as well as terracotta paved walks and stairs which join the different levels with their romantic porches and apartments. Several natural quarry stone terraces with solitary trees like cypresses, acacia, pine and oak trees are leading to the small creek where the real wild nature begins. Enjoy the sunset in complete silence from your terrace with its shady loggia, garden furniture, sunbeds as well as a bbq. Gaze onto onto the extended gardens, the romantic creek and the surrounding maddows and vast macchia covered hills of this private property of more then 76 ha. Start your hiking and biking directly form your doorsteps on well marked trails. Or simply take a stroll on our meditation trail along the small creek with its waterfalls, walk up to the waterlily pond or through the valley to the nearby town of Castellina in Chianti Admire the increditable variaty if wild flowers and walk along small trails that we cut right through the maddows - amazing the spectacle of fireflies in late May and June, the rare songs of the our numerous nightingales and the concert of hundreds of birds in the morning and evening. Because of its privacy and our efforts this is still a rare paradise - and only minutes from the next town center !!! we also offer breakfast services, cookery courses or dinner activities (our Tuscan welcome dinners are famous) we may arrange special dining events for our guests. trekking with visits to winery and restaurant , concerts, etc. etc,. - we gladly assist you with advise. English, German + Italian speaking owner lives on site Location: We are a tiny hamlet 500 m from main road - no long rides on dusty country roads Being close to the next town Castellina in Chianti (only 3 km) shopping + dining is easy - one may even walk there - just zip into town for a coffee break or some of the best ice-creme of the area Some thoughts : isolated houses in hill positions may suffer from water shortage in summer + gusty winds in spring + autumn, shortening the pool season. Our protected position, typical for real old houses + the many wells help us avoid either. also during thunderstorms, electrical failures are not uncommon, but due to the closeness to town we profit from its priority rating. Pool: Since there are sooo many sights to visit + things to do most of our guests take off early in the morning + come back late in the evening, after a dip in the pool they are off again for dinner. so pool + leisure area are often deserted total property: http://youtu.be/OyE9K4o85zYMore

About the neighbourhood

Surrounded by more then 2ha of wellcared parklike garden sits the imposing guest house complex which is dived in 3 apartments (2-4 Pers.) , and/or 2 semia...
