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.
Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi. purchased this villa in 2009
Because the dominant position on its hill and all round view is the best in our area.
Also the restoration has been done with care and quality.
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!
We stayed with our 3 children (14,12,8) in Castagno for two weeks. We had the most wonderful holiday. The house, pool, and garden were perfect. The children loved the pool which is larger than we have had on previous holidays. We loved the views of Seggiano and Mont Amiata from all around the property. Nathan and Gaia were really helpful, particularly on the wine front! Some great recommendations. There is so much to do around here, from small etruscan, hillside towns to larger places such as Montelpulciano, Montacino, Siena and Orvieto. The Duomo in Orvieto was worth the hour and a half drive. Absolutely stunning. Mount Amiata was well worth a visit with great walking and cycling and also a chair lift which was fun for the kids. Would thoroughly recommend the accommodation and the area for a family holiday. We cannot wait to return.
Fantastic agriturismo! After a dark,windy ride from Siena, the four of us arrived at the hilltop town of Seggianno and "Castagnastello" for 4 days in Maremma. We could not have been happier with our two bedroom cottage with a view of seggiano. Everything was perfect and Nathan and Gaia were excellent hosts. It is a great location for hiking, visiting vineyards, hill towns and the garden of Daniel spoeri. We would definitely recommended this hideaway!
My husband and me spend our holidays in Castagnatello for one weeK in July 2013. We were warmly welcomed by Nathan and Gaia. The accomodation was very nice in tuscan style, clean and nice furnished. The view of the surroundings was fantastic, espessially at the pool. It was a very relaxing holiday and we will definitely come again. Very recommendable!!!
C'est une charmante location qui correspond parfaitement au descriptif. L'appartement que nous avions loué (vigna) était spacieux. La piscine est grande et sécurisée. Le paysage est magnifique et visible de la terrasse où chaque repas est bien sympathique. Nous avons été accueillis par des propriétaires chaleureux et disponibles à toute heure. Nous recommandons cette location.
We stayed at Castagnatello in the middle of a 10 day Italian vacation and it was the perfect, relaxing spot to stay. We drove up from Rome and enjoyed the gorgeous drive into the Tuscan mountains on our way to the villa. We stayed in the Vigna villa with another couple and it was perfect for the four of us. The kitchen was huge, the views breathtaking and the pace of life just slow enough to unwind in the middle of a whirlwind trip. Nathan was gone for part of our trip so we were lucky enough to meet his mother and they all took great care of us.
The pool was a favorite spot while there and we spent every night watching the sunset from that location. The views of Seggiano were amazing and almost seemed too good to be true! The proximity to Seggiano, Montalcino and Siena were perfect...all under an hours drive! Also, you must visit the Abbey (on their website as a suggested place to visit). We arrived as the monks were chanting...an unforgettable part of our trip.
This villa is a must stay for the price, location, beauty and relaxation! We were on the go non-stop leading up to and after this part of our trip in Italy and it was so nice to unwind for a few days. We definitely enjoyed soaking up the Tuscan sun and wine! We will be back!
We were extremely pleased with our fortnight’s stay at Castagnatello. The accommodation and the pool exceeded our expectations. Gaia and Nathan were attentive hosts, generous to a fault with their time and helpful ideas. The star of the show was the nearby delightful small town of Castel del Piano, which had all the charm and activity one could wish for, with space to enjoy everything it had to offer. In comparison with the better known destinations further north, restaurant prices were significantly lower and the mountain scenery more beautiful and less exposed to the midday heat. The small towns that circle Mt Amiata are there to treasure, but Castel del Piano is the nearest and best.
Castagnatello is wonderfully located between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d'Orcia.
Val d'Orcia is renowned for its traditions, gastronomy and fine wines. Every historical Tuscan town has something beautiful to discover:
you will enjoy exploring villages like the romantic Pienza, renowned for its cheeses, Bagno Vignoni knownd for its Roman Spa, the medieval Montalcino and Montepulciano where hidden cellars in narrow streets offer superb wine tasting, and Rocca d'Orcia with its imposing ancient Castle still dominating the valley.
Tuscany and the Val d'Orcia are renowned for their fine wines. Some of the best wines produced in our area include: Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano and Montecucco (...our friendly neighbour is a known wine producer of the Montecucco Wine!).
Visits and tastings to wine producer estates and cellars can be easily organised.
If you are looking for nature and sport activities, the nearby Monte Amiata is a wildlife rich natural park with several walking, bicycle trails and BBQ areas.
