Castagneto Carducci Cottage Rental Photos and Description
3 bedrooms (sleep 6), 3 bathrooms, 1 kitchen, 1 living room, fire place, garden
A charming and typical ancient rural Tuscan cottage, mid hill located, within walking distance from the old medieval village of Castagneto Carducci, surrounded by a property of about 2,8 hectares with sea view. The land is covered by Mediterranean scrub, ancient oaks, holms, pines, chestnut and olive trees. The house has an interior area of about 170 square metres on two levels: on the ground floor there are the kitchen and the living room (with fireplace); at the first floor there are 3 bedrooms with 2 double beds, 2 twin beds, each with en-suite full bathroom (2 showers, 1 bath). From the garden around the house (and from each room and bathroom) you have a beautiful view of the sea, woods, Castagneto, the Segalari Castle and the plain between Castagneto and Bolgheri. Just outside of the house there are dining table for 8 people and plenty of places for sightseeing and resting on deckchairs. The property has a gardener, at work almost daily during the spring/summer season.
Living in the house: The property can be reached by car. Parking space for 2-3 cars is inside the property.
All doors and windows has typical Tuscanian mosquito nets: for your comfort and safety, you must always keep them closed since the house is very close to woods and trees. Thanks to its mid hill position, the big ancient trees surrounding the house, the thick walls and the automatic floor heating system (electronically customizable in each room), the temperature inside the house is always comfortable, during summer and winter. The outside of the house has a good/excellent cellular phone coverage. The inside, due to the thick walls, is only partially covered. There is no internal telephone line. International SKY channels and a broadband satellite internet connections (with wi-fi) are available.
Walking in the property: You can walk in the property but you have to watch your steps carefully, wear the right shoes and only on clean ground and trails. Early in the morning and at sundown, depending on the season, you can meet local wildlife like: squirrels, pheasants, buzzards, woodpeckers, deers and even wildboars. They live in the woods close to the house but are very timid and never dangerous. Even if the house and the garden around it are periodically treated against insects, during July and August the use of repellent is strongly advised during early morning and late afternoon. If you speak a little Italian or Spanish you can ask the gardener what wildlife he saw recently.
Surroundings: The surroundings of Castagneto are very well known by wine lovers. We are in the centre of one of the most known wine and olive oil production areas in the world. Famous Sassicaia and Ornellaia wines are made here. You can buy also other excellent (and less expensive) wines and olive oils directly by producers in the area. Within 1-2 hours of driving you can visit a lot of other beautiful ancient villages as well like Bolgheri, Massa Marittima, Volterra, Pisa, Lucca, San Gimignano, Siena and many other. All the area around Castagneto is also very good for cycling.
