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.
For guests enjoyment there is a spacious infinity swimming pool (16mx8m) with great views, and two big stone made BBQs.
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;
to spend a day out hiking on the cooler Amiata Mountain with its BBQ areas and natural parks;
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.
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!
