Encircled by cypress trees and crowning a hill overlooking the vineyards of Chianti is this secluded, entirely restored traditional Tuscan farmhouse. Casale di Pesa offers an idyllic and tranquil location for bringing together friends and family in one of the most splendid corners of Tuscany.

The interiors of the villa have been meticulously restored all the while retaining historic features like massive wooden beams, arched doorways and vast fireplaces. These are tastefully paired with elegant modern furnishings, antique light fixtures and vintage prints. There are several living rooms, a TV room, cinema room, a dining room with a long wooden table and a huge professionally equipped kitchen which beckons home cooks.

The villa’s 11 bedrooms are each individually decorated, all of which have their own spirit thanks to canopy beds, lovely color palettes and some wall paintings. Five masters have either private sitting areas, separate living rooms or offices as well as their own designated bathrooms. The other queen and twin rooms share three additional bathrooms. These all have luxurious modern fixtures, marble basins, large showers and attractive mirrors.

The sublime views enjoyed throughout the interiors can also be savored for the various outdoor sitting areas. There are quiet nooks under the loggias, a spacious covered lounge and two outdoor dining areas, one with a pizza oven for fun and delicious al fresco meals during which you can also sample the estate’s own Chianti wines. Guests can also enjoy hours of fun playing table tennis, bocci ball or with the villa’s wide array of board games.

The large pool sits just below the villa in a prized location offering a soaring panorama over the rolling vineyards, olive groves and forests of the valley. It is bordered by comfortable sun beds, umbrellas, and a shaded pergola sitting area.

The villa’s strategic location allows for easy and pleasant outings within the vicinity from wine-tasting to discovering pretty villages like Panzano and Greve in Chianti or the frescoed Benedictine Abbey of Badia a Passignano. Within less than an hour’s drive, you can also take in the cultural treasures of Florence, Siena and alluring San Gimignano.

Things to do

• The Chianti area: Famous for its wines – the Chianti Classico – this area of Tuscany has more than just world-class oenological pleasures to offer. The curious visitor will come across many delightful villages, each of them with a history of its own. Let us simply mention lesser known gems such as the romanesque church of Sant’Appiano, the Basilica of Impruneta, the fortified castle of Monteriggioni and the roofless romanesque abbey of San Galgano which are all close. And don’t miss the Saturday market in the small town of Greve.

• Badia a Passignano with its Abbey dated 395 A.C. and where one of the most famous Chiantis, the “Badia a Passignano Chianti Classico Riserva D.O.C.G.”by the Antinory family is produced. Wine tour in the cellars of the ancient Abbey can be organised.

• The village of Montalcino, home to the famous Brunello di Montalcino stands hilltop covered almost entirely with vineyards and at its centre signature examples of Medieval architecture: the Palazzo dei Priori and the wonderful Rocca fortress, built circa XIV century. Nine kilometres to the south of Montalcino, in a timeless rural landscape surrounded by yet more Brunello vineyards, can be found the Abbey of Sant’Antimo.

• Impruneta, a typical Tuscan town with tidy streets and honey-colored stone buildings bunched together, has a lovely square, 3 restaurants, and two good spots for gelato. Impruneta is famous for terracotta and ceramic production.

• Florence: The city lies on the Arno River and is known for its history and its importance in the Middle Ages and in the Renaissance, especially for its art and architecture. A centre of medieval European trade and finance, the city is often considered the birthplace of the Italian Renaissance; in fact, it has been called the Athens of the Middle Ages.[2] It was long under the de facto rule of the Medici family. From 1865 to 1870 the city was also the capital of the Kingdom of Italy. The historic centre of Florence continues to attract millions of tourists each year and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1982.

• Siena: The Sienese have no doubt, their town is the most beautiful in all of Tuscany, if not all of Italy. Siena has remained a Gothic city. Renaissance, one of the major influences in Florence, hardly affected the urban development of Siena. The city unfolds around the main shell-shaped square called “Il Campo.” Twice a year the famous horse race known as the “Palio” takes place here. The narrow streets are lined with old shops and small cafes, while churches and museums are real treasures of the fourteenth century.

• San Gimignano is a small walled medieval hill town in the province of Siena, Tuscany, north-central Italy. It is mainly famous for its medieval architecture, especially its towers, which may be seen from several kilometers outside the town. The town also is known for the white wine, Vernaccia di San Gimignano, grown in the area.

• The seashore: the sandy beaches along the coast of Versilia at turn of the century Viareggio and fashionable Forte dei Marmi with their trendy bars, designer shopping and some of the best seafood restaurants in Italy

• Restaurants: eating out is a way of getting to know the area. Simple local trattorias rub their shoulders with more sophisticated restaurants specialised in refined cuisine. Fresh local produce always plays the leading role.

• Local craftsmanship: hand-made terracotta pots from Impruneta, hand painted pottery from Montelupo, mouth-blown crystal glass from the neighbouring village Colle Val d’Elsa, not to mention the south bank of the Arno river in Florence where you will find a multitude of craftsmen working silver, leather, wood, glass, paper and metal.
