This recently restored luxury residence is born from what was once a 13th century watchtower and its surrounding buildings. Perched on an amazingly panoramic hill in the heart of Chianti wine country it provides an accomodation of exceptional beauty. The careful restoration has preserved all the history of this majestic property while creating a setting of sheer elegance and modern comforts. The outstanding views, sophisticated atmosphere and warm surroundings ensure visitors a unique lifestyle experience in what can be considered the most charming valley of Tuscany.
Residenza Contessa is not a single villa but rather an intimate group of 4 ancient buildings that share stunning outdoor spaces including a breathtaking panoramic terrace, perfect for al fresco dining, delightful gardens and a marvelous pool area with private sauna room. Completely private and nestled away in the rolling greens of the countryside, the residence is also perfectly located for exploring nearby picturesque towns and larger cities such as Florence and Siena.
Most guests prefer to take advantage of the attentive on-hand staff to prepare breakfasts and most other meals which they can enjoy outdoors on the spacious terrace or indoors in the charming dining room. Guests may however also choose to self-cater in which case they will have full access to the estate's professional, fully-equipped kitchen.
14 impeccably renovated, tastefully furnished bedrooms in traditional Tuscan style include 7 double rooms, 3 triple rooms and 4 suites (each featuring a living room, some with a sofabed), sleeping a total of up to 37 guests. Each bedroom has its own private en-suite bathroom. Common spaces include 2 small sitting rooms in the main building, the dining room and the spectacular outdoor spaces where guests tend to spend most of their time during the warm season, enjoying the stunning scenery, reading a book, soaking up the sun, sipping a great glass of Chianti or cooling off with a dip in the pool.
The ground floor of The Tower houses two cozy sitting rooms and a triple bedroom.
On the second floor, there are 5 more bedrooms plus the tower suite, one of the residence's most lovely accomodations which spreads out above over 3 floors, essentially extending into the lookout tower offering a stunning view of the hills from the bedroom on the top floor.
The ground floor of The Mill features a room where the agricultural past of the estate is remembered by the presence of the original olive press where extra virgin olive oil was made for centuries. The kitchen and dining room are also located in this building while the upper floor houses 3 bedrooms and a 4-person suite.
The remaining two buildings of the estate are smaller and together house a double room and 2 spectacular suites.
The beautiful grounds of Residenza Contessa feature a luxurious swimming pool flanked by sunbeds, umbrellas and a lovely gazebo for relaxation while soaking up the Tuscan sun. An adjacent jacuzzi and a private sauna room provide a total wellness experience that is music to the senses. The surrounding gardens are adorned with colorful flowerbeds and offer plenty of private spaces from where one can meditate on the beauty and magnificence of the valleys beyond.
