Overview

About the property

5 Bedrooms, 5.5 Baths, Sleeps 10

A stay in luminous Tuscany deserves nothing less than this—a 16th century farmhouse estate occupying a hillside in the Chianti Classico of Tuscany and enfolded in a lush landscape of olive groves, Italian cypress trees and rolling vineyards. The estate's near neighbor, the Medieval castle Vertine, sits majestically within view and provides the estate with its name: La Veduta di Vertine, or “The View of Vertine.”

Less than an hour's drive from Florence and a half hour from Siena, La Veduta di Vertine is fully engaged with its pastoral setting. Hens from the estate's coop provide fresh eggs, delivered each morning in a basket in time for breakfast. An organic garden offers up a bounty of fresh vegetables, plucked for you at their ripest point. The kitchen pantry is stocked with olive oil cold-pressed from green and black olives cultivated just outside, and a stone wine cave steps down from the kitchen cradles bottles of wine produced, of course, from the surrounding vineyard's grapes. You can't get closer to the land than this.

*Bedrooms

The Vertine Master Suite: Enjoy a full view of Vertine Castle in the spacious upstairs master suite. The luxurious king-size bed outfitted with a double pillow top mattress, Egyptian cotton sheets, and down/feather duvets and pillows. A sitting area surrounds a fireplace, and the en-suite bathroom features a double vanity, his and hers water closets, a walk-in shower and a Jacuzzi tub.

The Garden Master Suite: The second of two masters, this suite is a welcome new addition to the farmhouse, just completed by the Cuvée design team. French doors lead to the terrace and infinity pool. The suite offers a Cuvée king-sized bed and a masterpiece en-suite bath, which provides a two-person shower and an exquisite freestanding cast-iron bathtub.

The Chianti Guest Master Suite: On the upper floor of the guest house, find this king-sized bedroom, which offers views of the verdant hills and vineyards of Chianti Classico, a Cuvée king-sized bed, and en-suite bathroom with a soaking tub.

The Rose Guest Suite: The Rose Suite overlooks the pool and organic garden, and its four-poster iron Cuvée King bed was handmade by Italian craftsmen. An en-suite bathroom is equipped with a walk-in shower.

The Citrus Suite: The Citrus Suite opens to a courtyard garden with orange and lemon trees and a bistro table. This suite provides two, iron-forged twin Cuvée beds that can be combined to create a king bed, as well. Adjacent is a bathroom with a walk-in shower.

*Fully Equipped Chef Style Kitchen

In Italy, food is a way of life, and so the estate's kitchen is tasked with presenting a worthy setting for culinary magic. The space our team created is both a showpiece and a quintessential country kitchen. Highlights include a working fireplace for grilling meats and vegetables, a large antique butcher block borrowed from neighboring France, and a hand-forged chandelier.

*Great Room

The great room, also known as the loggia, connects the main and guesthouses and showcases striking views of the Vertine castle's turrets and towers—the very view that inspired the name “La Veduta di Vertine.” A media center allows you to unwind with a movie in this space, as well.

*The Guest House

The guest house includes a fully outfitted kitchen, media room, a billiard room, and a solarium, which provides access to the organic garden. A laundry room with washer, dryer and exercise equipment is also located here

*Courtyard

This courtyard comes alive with the signature smells of Italy. A wood burning pizza oven fires traditional pizza pies, and lemon and orange trees deliver their fresh citrus scent on a soft breeze. When the pizza is browned and melted to perfection, take a seat at the courtyard table.

*Outdoor Pool and Gardens

An expansive outdoor terrace offers postcard views of Vertine Castle and the surrounding vineyards stretching toward the horizon. An infinity pool and organic vegetable garden are just a couple of the amenities offered here.

*FREE WIFI

Incredible experience with Cuvée

  • 5 of 5

This trip was truly an extraordinary experience for my family and I. Our concierge, Francesco, went above and beyond to assist with any and every need, from custom activities to personalized touches on all aspects of our trip. Cuvée made our experience feel so special by going beyond the call of duty to ensure my family had the trip of a lifetime. We enjoyed the going down to coop on the property for fresh, organic eggs every morning along with picking fresh veggies from the garden. What an awesome way to start the morning! We also took day trips to Florence and Siena, which Francesco arranged for us allowing it to be seamless and full of adventure. The best part was by far coming back to the Farmhouse, grabbing a glass of Cuvée Lorenzo and putting our feet up as we enjoyed an evening fire in the living room. Thank you Cuvée and Francesco for making our trip more than we could have ever dreamed of!

Reviewer Comments:

This fabulous Tuscany Villa has the most remarkable views overlooking a vineyard and 16th century small castle on the other side of the valley. It has a 25 yard long negative edge swimming pool that overlooks this vineyard, as a swimmer this was a real bonus. We had 8 adults and 2 children in our group and never felt crowded it is spacious and beautifully furnished. There were activities for everyone :swimming, pool table,movie room,pizza oven,cozy reading lounge and a private office with all the amenities. The staff led by Francisco was wonderful included daily housekeeping,driving service and optional chef. The children enjoyed collecting fresh eggs each morning and our private chef made fabulous meals ranging from a Pizza cooking class to a memorable family Italian dinner. It is conveniently located between Sienna and Florence. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting to experience Tuscany!
