Casa Elena is an elegant Tuscan farmhouse with glorious views over the rolling hills of Chianti. The location is ideal — between Florence and Siena and close to Certaldo, Montespertoli and San Gimignano, in the very heart of Chianti.

The original building dates back a thousand years and is part of the Borgo di Voltiggiano, a group of about ten properties, including the villa of the owner, which is about 300 yards from Casa Elena. The two properties are separated by gardens and a high hedge and are not connected, ensuring privacy.

Casa Elena was recently renovated and is beautifully decorated, with comfort and style in mind. The 2.5 acre property is entirely fenced. The lawn is bordered with rose bushes, cypress and olive trees. A patio by the pool provides shade as well as sun lounges. Attached to the house are two other patios, one furnished with table and chairs for al fresco dining and the other burnished with comfortable lounge chairs. The salt-water pool has a solar cover to retain the sun’s warmth during the night; however, please be aware that this is not a safety cover for children.

Bicycles are available on request.
