Castagnatello Country House - Stunning all round Countryside Views

Castagnatello is a delightfully restored traditional Country House immersed in the Tuscan countryside, wonderfully situated between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d’Orcia.

This luxurious hilltop property, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, offers breathtaking views of the nearby hamlet of Seggiano and of the green rolling hills at the foot of the Amiata Mountain.

Castagnatello has five apartments furnished to high standards, each one with its own independent entrance and all offering private panoramic terraces or covered patios that open directly to the charming garden that surrounds the estate.

Within the surrounding garden there is a separate Tasting House were fine wines and local gastronomy tastings are organised for enthusiastic guests.

Castagnatello sits at the top of a hill at 500m above sea level, and offers a cooler and dryer climate than other places located at lower altitudes.

We are also magnificently located as a starting point

to visit charming places in southern Tuscany like the Val d’Orcia and its lovely villages (Unesco World Heritage site);

to enjoy the renowned wine producing areas of Montalcino and Montepulciano;

or to spend it at the beach, which is just 1 our away, visiting beautiful seaside villages like Castiglione della Pescaia.

Hi there, I am Nathan Andres Libri.

I was born and grew up in Rome, were I did my School and University.

I then moved to the UK for about 10 years, were I happily worked as a Clinical Scientist. At the end of 2008 my first child was born (little Alexander...born in sunny Southampton), and then we decided to move to southern Tuscany to improve the quality of life of our new forming family.

Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi. purchased this villa in 2009

Castagnatello is my father's in law property.

He, with the help and good taste of my mother in law carefully restored and brought back to life the estate.

They were so kind to offer us to start and manage the rental business.

Seggiano is a beautiful area, a green bubble were there are no pollouting industries, traffic, and unregulated construction.

The countryside between the Amiata and the Val d'Orcia is undoubtedly one of the nicest in Tuscany. In particular the panoramic views we have from Castagnatello are truly stunning!

PERFECT HOLIDAY IN CASTAGNATELLO

  • 5 of 5
My husband and me spend our holidays in Castagnatello for one weeK in July 2013. We were warmly welcomed by Nathan and Gaia. The accomodation was very nice in tuscan style, clean and nice furnished. The view of the surroundings was fantastic, espessially at the pool. It was a very relaxing holiday and we will definitely come again. Very recommendable!!!

BELLE LOCATION ET PROPRIÉTAIRES AVENANTS.

  • 5 of 5
C'est une charmante location qui correspond parfaitement au descriptif. L'appartement que nous avions loué (vigna) était spacieux. La piscine est grande et sécurisée. Le paysage est magnifique et visible de la terrasse où chaque repas est bien sympathique. Nous avons été accueillis par des propriétaires chaleureux et disponibles à toute heure. Nous recommandons cette location.

TUSCAN PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Castagnatello in the middle of a 10 day Italian vacation and it was the perfect, relaxing spot to stay. We drove up from Rome and enjoyed the gorgeous drive into the Tuscan mountains on our way to the villa. We stayed in the Vigna villa with another couple and it was perfect for the four of us. The kitchen was huge, the views breathtaking and the pace of life just slow enough to unwind in the middle of a whirlwind trip. Nathan was gone for part of our trip so we were lucky enough to meet his mother and they all took great care of us.
The pool was a favorite spot while there and we spent every night watching the sunset from that location. The views of Seggiano were amazing and almost seemed too good to be true! The proximity to Seggiano, Montalcino and Siena were perfect...all under an hours drive! Also, you must visit the Abbey (on their website as a suggested place to visit). We arrived as the monks were chanting...an unforgettable part of our trip.

This villa is a must stay for the price, location, beauty and relaxation! We were on the go non-stop leading up to and after this part of our trip in Italy and it was so nice to unwind for a few days. We definitely enjoyed soaking up the Tuscan sun and wine! We will be back!

MOST ENJOYABLE FORTNIGHT IN CASTAGNO.

  • 5 of 5
We were extremely pleased with our fortnight’s stay at Castagnatello. The accommodation and the pool exceeded our expectations. Gaia and Nathan were attentive hosts, generous to a fault with their time and helpful ideas. The star of the show was the nearby delightful small town of Castel del Piano, which had all the charm and activity one could wish for, with space to enjoy everything it had to offer. In comparison with the better known destinations further north, restaurant prices were significantly lower and the mountain scenery more beautiful and less exposed to the midday heat. The small towns that circle Mt Amiata are there to treasure, but Castel del Piano is the nearest and best.

LITTLE CHESTNUT

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I stayed at the Castagnatello Country House in Tuscany this past summer. It was amazing! We loved the location. It was super quiet and peaceful. It had a great view of Seggiano and surrounding countryside. We took day trips to Sienna, Pienza, montepulciano, and Orvieto. We rented a car in Florence and drove through Italy which was very enjoyable. We were able to pick up all kinds of delicious foods at the local grocery store for meals. One of our favorite moments was attending a wine, cheese, and honey tasting with Nathan and his wife.

OUR LOCATION:

Val d'Orcia is renowned for its traditions, gastronomy and fine wines. Every historical Tuscan town has something beautiful to discover:

you will enjoy exploring villages like the romantic Pienza, renowned for its cheeses, Bagno Vignoni knownd for its Roman Spa, the medieval Montalcino and Montepulciano where hidden cellars in narrow streets offer superb wine tasting, and Rocca d'Orcia with its imposing ancient Castle still dominating the valley.

Tuscany and the Val d'Orcia are renowned for their fine wines. Some of the best wines produced in our area include: Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano and Montecucco (...our friendly neighbour is a known wine producer of the Montecucco Wine!).

Visits and tastings to wine producer estates and cellars can be easily organised.
