Castelnuovo Tancredi

Buonconvento, Siena

A charming house with a shared pool & authentic interiors on a fabulous wine estate – the real Tuscany! Siena only 25km


3 beds


2 bedrooms


Sleeps 4


From the town of Buonconvento, wend your way up the hill to eight hectares of vineyards and olive groves, both organically farmed. Continue down the road to a hamlet built in 1832 where the farmers and the livestock once resided: now a cluster of rustic outbuildings that make up Borgo di Castelrotto. Surrounded by a natural garden of lavender, rosemary and roses, each retreat has its own pergola for meals. A shared pool on the hill overlooks a perfect Tuscany valley; the air is fresh and the silence is golden. Your holiday home for the week, Il Fienile, is a charming house, and perfect for four, with a super-private patio outside. Step inside to find chunky beamed ceilings, wrought-iron beds and country antiques. A neat corner kitchen, sofas in front of the open fire and unfussy bathrooms complete the relaxed feel: an engaging simplicity remains. Gracious owner Guido (fourth generation) and his amicable wife Lee can prepare private wine tastings in their historical, architect-designed cantina. The best of Tuscany is at your feet.
