Overview

About the property

10 Bedrooms, 7 Bathrooms, Sleeps 19 guests

Castelrotto is an antique hamlet, or borgo in italian, and is immersed in nature and composed of 3 separate and independent houses that all share a splendid pool. The vast garden that surrounds the hamlet allows each home to enjoy its own special privacy and independence, at the same time the house can easily be combined to accommodate a large group of people (up to 19 adults , 20 with small children).

The name of the 3 accomodations take after their original function as part of the Farm Estate: the Fagianaia, or the pheasant house, The Fienile, or the hay-loft, and the Casanova, or the new farmer's home.

A large room on the ground floor of the main house has been recently restored respecting in every way its country roots and is used for events and weddings. Today, as in 1832 when the hamlet was built, the view of the Sienese countryside surrounding the property has remained unaltered, and the glimpse of Montalcino on the distant hilltop still remains one of those breathtaking spectacles only the most discerning can appreciate the entire house.

----

Casanova is an independent farmhouse and the living quarters are situated on the first floor of the building as was the tradition of farmers in this area. The beautiful and spacious living room with its huge fireplace and the large kitchen offer authentic peace and quiet. The apartment is composed of 4 double bedrooms, divided in 2 wings by the large living room which assures privacy and comfort to the guests. There are 3 bathrooms, all with showers. This house can accommodate up to 8 people very comfortably.

-----

The Fagianaia is a beautifully decorated and spacious farmhouse and again with the living quarters on the first floor and is composed of 4 bedrooms, of which 1 is with 2 single beds, a single bedroom with one bed and a sofa bed for small children only, and 2 are with double/king size beds. There are 2 bathrooms, one with bath/shower and the other with shower. The immense fireplace in the large and inviting living room and the large eat- in kitchen with the friar's table complete the comfort and uniqueness of this house. This house is perfect for 7 adults or 8 with children.

-----

The Fienile, a converted hay-loft, is the latest addition to the Castelrotto hamlet. It is a unique, charming and romantic getaway. The upstairs has been deliberately thought out as a loft, with a large bedroom and bathroom with shower. The ground floor has a large kitchen and a splendid living space with a stone and brick fireplace, which add to the warm and cozy atmosphere. There is also a double bedroom with private bathroom/with shower that looks out onto the olive grove and pool. The house is ideal for 4 people.

This hamlet can accomodate up to 19 guests. There are plenty of outdoor areas in the garden where to read a book or have lunch or dinner.

About Lee Venturini

For all of us Castelnuovo represents our true self, our pride. Everything we do here at is done with true dedication to this property, keeping in mind the past but always thinking of the future. This place is our history, our tradition

Lee Venturini purchased this farmhouse in 1832

Why Lee Venturini chose Buonconvento

A very special man told me once that in our Estate he was able to feel the energy of this land. He defined us a Rustic Luxury Estate, and by “Rustic”, he insisted on clarifying, he didn’t mean broken, ugly or old, but simply True.

So we will not change our colors, nor will we abandon our tradition and our history, because we truly believe that #thisistuscany, and our duty is to preserve it.

What makes this farmhouse unique

The true spirit of Tuscany has changed so much in the last years, and sadly, not always in a better way. Our purpose at Castelnuovo Tancredi is to maintain our property as true as possible, in all aspects: wine and olive oil production and primarily hospitality. However, often this isn’t the most popular in todays world.

You will not find a shabby chic ambience nor an industrial design in our villas. These trends that have became so popular in the last years all over the region, resulting in a transformation of the spirit, the sense, and yes, also the image of Tuscany.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull week in Castelrotto. The hole complex is beatiful - we were in la Faginaia house, the location is amazing, you can see Montalcino, and Violante has organize dinner and wine tasting for us. I was several times in Tuscany but this location and the atmosphere was really special. Unfortunately the pool was not open.
