A classic Chianti villa, Castellaccio is nestled in one of nature's amphitheatres, surrounded by gently rising hills of green and the occasional distant villa. Inspired perhaps by the lay of the land and certainly assisted by gifted gardeners, its owners have created a property that stretches languidly over many levels and invites free flowing movement from one to another. With accommodation in the main house and a spacious barn, this is an excellent place for a group of friends or a multi-generational family to find space for joyous gathering or tranquil retreat.

From the entrance to the fenced property, wide banks of rosemary and lavender and tall flowering shrubs draw you along the path to an umbrella-shaded panoramic terrace whose tables are a natural venue for al fresco meals. Wide staircases flanking the terrace lead up to a larger flagstone terrace between the barn and the house, the stone facade of which is softened and shaded by the wooden pergola draped with roses and white wisteria and furnished with wicker sofas.
