This splendid property, which combines an excellent farm with a well-established accommodation business, is for sale in the heart of Tuscany, in an enchanted location amidst vineyards and centuries-old olive groves.
Immersed in the rolling hills just a stone's throw from the splendid city of Siena, the location is an ideal starting point for visiting fascinating villages rich in history, art and culture. The locality where the castle is located has ancient origins and boasts a long winemaking tradition that accompanies the history of the family that owns the farm, which has been engaged in the production of high-quality wines for decades.
The charming resort is set in an unspoilt location, surrounded by the beautiful Tuscan landscape, and boasts around 40 hectares of its own land, with vineyards, olive groves, woods and arable land, where it is possible to rediscover contact with nature.
An avenue of cypress trees leads to the castle, surrounded by a historic park and an Italian-style garden. All around, the estate's vineyards frame the panoramic view of Siena.
The castle, which dates back to the 12th century, was once an outpost of the militia defending the city of Siena.
Internally, the renovation of the rooms and the suite has made it possible to revive the traditions and atmosphere of an ancient residence without sacrificing comfort and elegance.
In addition, there are large communal rooms for accommodation, reception rooms for parties of the highest standard, a restaurant with a panoramic terrace and a view over the city of Siena, and a wine cellar.
The rooms are very warm and skilfully restored: every single detail recalls the old days but at the same time blends in harmony with today's comforts.
Around the castle, a suite and two flats have been created in the skilfully restored old farmhouses.
The winery is located on the beautiful hills of Siena and the native vines of the area, including Sangiovese, Ciliegiolo and Colorino, are cultivated using the latest technology. The company owns seven indigenous varieties, which were cultivated in ancient times around the city of Siena. The ancient vines, five red and two white, are destined to become 'The Wine of Siena' after careful micro vinification. The vineyards are located on soils that, thanks to the presence of clay, are able to maintain the humidity necessary to guarantee constant quality in wine production, allowing the plants to survive even in torrid summers without rain.
The beautiful swimming pool set within the olive grove offers a splendid view of the Crete Senesi and Monte Amiata.
This property is an excellent solution for those who would like to continue the wine production and hospitality business but can also become a private residence of the highest standard.
