Historic Winery in Southern Tuscany Italy
Farmhouse in Tuscany, Italy
Property Details of Tuscany Farmhouse
Just ten minutes from the autostrada and two miles from the spa town of Chianciano, this gracious 20-acre farm dates back to the 1600s and has been in the Valeriani family for generations. Guests are welcome to pick the seasonal vegetables growing in the garden, participate in the November olive harvest and watch the grapes become wine in the cellars (September and October). On the ground floor of the main building, which once housed a convent, there are several dining rooms and a TV room (with English language channels) warmed by ancient fireplaces. Behind the building is a stunning panoramic swimming pool.
Beautiful restorations have been made to the farmhouses, where guests stay in individual apartments or rooms. Up one flight of stairs are Mandorlo (700 sq.ft.) and Leccio (440 sq.ft.), each featuring a living/dining room, separate eat-in kitchen, bedroom with two twin beds (or one double) and bathroom; Girasole (485 sq.ft.), which has a living/dining room with kitchenette, two double bedrooms and bathroom; and Mimosa, Ginestra and Quercia, three double bedrooms each with its own private bathroom. Mandorlo and Mimosa are joined by a private foyer, which makes them convertible into a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment ideal for two couples.
For large families, Ginestra and Quercia can be joined to Girasole for a total of four bedrooms and three bathrooms (one of these rooms is right across the hall but not actually encompassed in the resulting four-bedroom apartment). On the top floor, benefitting from wonderful views across the vineyards to old Chianciano, are Colombaio (570 sq.ft.; living/dining room,
separate kitchen, triple bedroom and bath) and Caratello (440 sq.ft.; living/dining room, separate kitchen, double bedroom and bathroom).
There are also five smaller houses, located just a few yards from the main house. Olivo (700 sq.ft.) has a living/dining room with fireplace and bachelor's kitchenette, two double bedrooms and two bathrooms. Glicine (540 sq.ft.) and Cipresso (645 sq.ft.) each have a living/dining room with kitchenette, double bedroom and bathroom. Vigneto (645 sq.ft.) has a living/dining room with kitchenette, double bedroom and two bathrooms. Noce is a very romantic little house that comprises a double bedroom under the eaves, and a bathroom with shower (no kitchen).
In all rooms and apartments there is independent central heating, telephone, radio and color TV. Each apartment has a living room with sleep sofa for one adult or two children, plus a modern kitchenette with mini-fridge, aluminum sink, four-burner range and American coffee pot. The bathrooms (all with showers) have also been recently remodeled, and feature great lighting and hair dryers. Heavy wooden antiques, terra cotta tiles, wood-beamed and arched ceilings create a warm, inviting atmosphere throughout.
Local Area DetailsThe closest attraction to Palazzo Bandino are the baths at Chianciano Terme, where you can treat yourself to all sorts of health treatments, world-class beauty treatments and excellent fitness facilities. But this is also a prime location for day trips in Tuscany and Umbria. Choose from Florence (one hour by autostrada), Montepulciano (10 miles), Pienza (20 miles), Siena or Volterra (35 miles), Lake Trasimeno (10 miles), or Arezzo (30 miles). Perugia, Assisi and San Gimignano are just a little farther, and even Rome is only ninety minutes away. Travel by car or take the train: Chiusi-Chianciano is a main stop on the Rome-Florence line.
