A gated and private single-family home (no neighbors!) faithfully restored, set strategically in the prime countryside of the Chianti hills to the northeast of Siena. This finely appointed home is made available to guests on a very limited basis from May to October.
"LaChiusa-in-Chianti"⚜️Ancient name of an ancient Siena estate, fully renovated with contemporary conveniences, a comfortable family property in the historic and central area of Tuscany's Chianti Classico region. The name means “The Gathering Place”. With no adjacent neighbors, this classic home dates to the mid-1500's. Nestled in olive groves, with wide views of rolling 'Chianti Classico' vineyards, it is still within a short walk to a tiny ancient village boasting three very fine restaurants.
A professionally equipped kitchen and multiple large outdoor living and dining spaces are two of the premiere features of the estate property. Easy access from Rome, Florence, or Pisa make this a perfect choice for your stay in Classic Tuscany. Dreamliner Views overlook meticulously groomed Sangiovese & Merlot vineyards through to the rolling hills of the Chianti region.
The residence is on three levels, with the main entry and living spaces separating upper and lower suites of two bedrooms each. The layout is perfect for two couples, “throuples”, children, grandparents, extended family and friends, as the two suites remain autonomous and distinctly private.
