ARCHIPETTOLI - COUNTRY HOUSE WITH PANORAMIC VIEWS IN CHIANTI

San Casciano in Val di Pesa Chateau / Country House Rental Photos and Description

Near Florence, secluded and elevated position with panoramic views

Archipettoli (di Sotto) is a magnificent country estate, situated between Florence and Siena, in the heart of Chianti, who’s oldest part dates back to the 13 century. It belonged to the Cavalcanti, and then became property of the Strozzi families, particularly of Filippo Strozzi. The country house stands alone on a lovely hill, in perfectly quite surroundings amongst olive groves, vineyards and a large garden with a magnificent view on the typical Tuscan countryside. Archipettoli has been cleverly restored to offer a very well equipped family home. It is extremely comfortable and an ideal base for exploring the cultural heritage of Tuscany.

The 14 acres of private gardens slope gently down to a large swimming pool, nestling in the olive groves, set amidst extensive lawns bordered with flowers. The views to Apennines and Apuan Alps are spectacular. Special mention must be made of the outside covered terrace, ideal for admiring magnificent sunsets. Highly recommended for all year.

Suitability:
  • wheelchair inaccessible
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

The Villa of our Dreams!

Booking online, you never know exactly what to expect...this villa far exceeded our expectations. The pictures on the vrbo website do show the beauty of the area, however, experiencing it in person is altogether different - and better! The first evening, enjoying wine at the outdoor area and watching the sunset, we felt like we must be dreaming. So beautiful!!!

There were three couples traveling together - we rented a van in Florence, and made the easy drive to the villa. Giampaolo and Walter (two of the owners) met us at the villa, and made us feel right at home. The villa is laid out perfectly for three couples - 3 separate sleeping areas, with a bath in each. Amazing views from every window.

We had one week at the villa, and decided to take a day trip every other day - so we could enjoy just 'being' a few days. Very easy day trip to Florence (we took a bus from Bargino, so we didn't have to deal with the city traffic), fairly easy day trip to Siena and San Gimignano, and a not-so-easy day trip to Cinque Terre (it was a very long day). Our best memories of the trip are THE VILLA!!!

Three of us in the group are runners, and we enjoyed running the hills of Tuscany - and discovering a few things that we would not have otherwise. There is a winery just a couple of miles from the villa that we highly recommend, Il Bacio. LOVED our experience there!

European travel can be taxing...long flights, delays at the airports, waiting, waiting, and more waiting...the villa made it all worth it!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

The Best Tuscan Experience

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Mar 26, 2011

We stayed here in October 2010. We were a party of ten. Five adults and five children. The children were from ages 2-7. We stayed here for nine days and had already been in Italy for two weeks; this was by far our favorite location.

Two of the owners, Giampallo and Walter were an absolute pleasure to meet and be around. They gave us great insight to the area as well as some local wineries that were a must see.

We had the pleasure of tasting and buying their own private label wine....WOW. It was fabulous....I hope that they will be able to export this to the US so I may continue to enjoy it for years to come.

The house and the grounds were very well kept. Our children had a wonderful time and enjoyed being out in the country side. I can't say enough about this place. I will be sure to stay here whenever we visit Italy. We felt at home and it was a difficult place to leave.

Quintessential Tuscany: amazing property!

We stayed at Villa Archipettoli in July 2010. We were with 5 adults (parents + 3 teenagers) and this lovely country mansion was a true highlight of our vacation in Tuscany. Everything is perfect about this place: location, size of the property, (you could stay with many more people or multiple families), beautiful grounds, nice pool, lovely olive tree orchard, etc. The house itself is in perfect condition, renovated by keeping its traditional style, well equipped kitchen, etc. Around the house, it has a variety of places where you can sit and enjoy a certain part of the day: breakfast in the shadow in front of the house, cocktails around the pool in comfortable lounge chairs, and romantic Al Fresco dinning under the covered dining area. The owners were extremely friendly and hospitable. You don’t see them around but they are there when you would need them. Villa Archipettoli is located in the center of Tuscany and allows day trips to all highlights of the Tuscan area. I can heartily recommend this lovely house! Tip: ask the owners for a bottle of the olive oil from their own orchard...

Fabulous Tuscan Villa Met All of Our Expectations

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 20, 2010
  • Stayed: Sep 2010
I was so daunted by the sheer number of villas to rent in Tuscany I count my lucky stars that the one I selected was perfect!

Located on top of a hill at the end of a country lane, the villa, grounds and views in all directions were quintessential Tuscany without being a cliche. The villa's interior is updated where it counts (bathrooms and appliances) but retained a rustic charm with antique furniture, hand hewn doors and a ginormous oven/fireplace in the kitchen where it was not difficult to imagine former residents several hundred years ago cooking their meals.

Villa was super clean, grounds excellently maintained and correspondence/transaction with the owner a breeze.

Archipetolli's other great advantage was location. A short (but beautiful) ten minute drive to a major highway allows easy visits to Florence, Siena and a host of quaint hill towns.

All of my expectations were met - and more - and all five us in our party had only praise for my choice.

Fantasic Property !

Archipettoli is truly an outstanding Tuscan experience. We were five adults and stayed for one week.

The house is well maintained, well furnished and is a fully equipped household. The grounds around the house were also in top condition. The views from its hilltop location were stunning and beyond expectations.

The property is located only minutes west of the main highway between Florence and Siena and provided quick and easy access to both cities as well as the Chianti wine country.

We highly recommend Archipettoli for a Tuscan holiday and hope to return again ourselves in the future.

Car: recommended

In the heart of the Chianti region, near Florence, and not far from Siena and San Gimignano. An ideal starting point to discover all the cultural highlights of Tuscany, such as historic places, world-famous museums. Magnificent position with far-reaching views of the beautiful tuscan landscape. The estate offers a large landscaped garden and a private pool (6x12m). The ideal place to relax amidst olive groves and vinyards.

Archipettoli was cleverly restored to become a comfortable country house. The old wood-beamed ceilings and the terracotta floors give the house a very cosy atmosphere, especially the old original chimney in the kitchen.
