Casa delle Campane / Chianti inTuscany
In the heart of the beautiful Chianti Hills, this wonderful country house is set on a thirty-acre rolling patchwork of olive groves, woods and fields, surrounded by spectacular views of the beloved Tuscan landscape.
This is a perfect spot for an Italian idyll, offering quiet relaxation in a secluded natural setting as well as a convenient home base for explorations — from the historic cities of Florence, Siena, Lucca, and Pisa to the smaller towns of San Gimignano and Volterra and the tiny villages along the ancient Chianti wine road. Facilities for golf and horseback riding are a short drive away. Shops and services are found in the nearby towns of Montespertoli, San Casciano and Tavernelle and there are smaller but wonderful restaurants in Luccardo and Fiano.
The house is surrounded by grass and trees, and has a lovely fenced pool (12 x 6 meters, 39 x 79 ft) and furnished deck with lounge chairs and sun umbrellas. A large terrace provides a cool spot for outdoor dining under a shaded loggia next to the kitchen. Guests have a choice of dining together in the dining room or outside on the terrace.
Casa delle Campane strikes a balance between rustic and elegant. Terracotta floors, whitewashed walls and beamed ceilings accent its spotless, light-filled interiors, and carefully chosen traditional furnishings and chandeliers complement the building’s immaculate restoration.

A separate small barn on the estate houses an English- speaking couple that are the concierges for the guests of the farmhouse.
Although the farmhouse can sleep up to 12 guests, we think it is best for a maximum of five couples, depending on the season, because one bedroom has the beds arranged end-on-end rather than side-by-side. It is fine for singles.
Getting to the villa
The house is reached by a 0.43 mile unpaved road with some swales built in it to keep the road from washing out. It is not a dangerous or long road, but it is best to drive slowly and to avoid low-slung rental cars.
