Seggiano Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Castagnatello country house - Enchanting all round countryside views

Castagnatello is a delightfully restored Country House immersed in the Tuscan countryside, wonderfully situated between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d’Orcia.

Castagnatello, 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 six accommodations 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.

We have a refreshing infinity swimming pool (16mx8m) with great views, and two big stone made BBQs.

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.

About Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi.

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 apartment in 2009

Why Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi. chose Grosseto Region

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.

What makes this apartment unique

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!

Tuscan Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two friends from the UK stayed at Castagnatello in September and the only regret we had was that we couldn't stay longer. The Ulivo apartment was large, clean and fully equipped. The whole property is well maintained and set in a quiet and peaceful location with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, including Seggiano the nearest village. The pool area is fantastic and a great spot to watch the magical sunsets. Nathan and Gaia are great hosts and always willing to help and offer recommendations to make your stay a pleasant one. Explore the nearby historic towns and villages with Castel de Piano well worth a visit, also Siena and Montalcino are within easy reach making Castagnatello an excellent base. Highly recommended.

Picturesque location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful location with fabulous views of surrounding countryside. The pool was large & clean. Our 12 year old son enjoyed it immensely. Communication with Nathan was easy and he was so helpful. We drove to some fabulous towns and enjoyed great food and wine. The only drawback was no A/C so evenings were warm but a fan was provided upon request. Thanks Nathan!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Castagnatello - I am also happy I was able to help! luckily we are at 500m above sea level and have a cooler (5-8 Celsiou degrees less) and breezier climate than nearby areas like Florence, Siena, the Orcia Valley and the seaside.....

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Castagnatello!

We were a group of 4 adults who stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was fully outfitted and had everything we needed to cook our own meals. We loved the pool area and only wish we had booked a longer stay to relax and enjoy the amazing view. It is truly stunning.

Nathan and Gaia are amazing hosts who speak perfect English. Communication was excellent! Our emails with questions were answered promptly. The area is so peaceful and quiet. Getting there was easy with the Google Map directions provided.

I highly recommend staying at this property!

2012, 2013 & 2014 definitely ! Castagnatello is a charming agriturismo and were received with great attention and sympathy by the owners. Benefits up to the promises . Practical side , the house is located outside the village of Seggiano , though not too far to get there on foot or by bike , the apartments are spacious , quaint and have terraces , the pool is also very nice as well the approaches ! All the comforts ! Have made great walks and cycling in the countryside of Tuscany with all the charms that we know : it is a mesmerizing region wonderfully harmonious landscape , planted with cypresses , olive trees and vineyards hills, villages and the beautiful cities that are real treasures !

We Tuscany and Castagnatello are synonymous with joy, lifestyle , beauty and tranquility without forgetting its gastronomy and wines. For years we explore , and we never get tired in !

In short , we are delighted , but perhaps there he is in our interest not to spread us compliments for the holiday may be taken over and our chances to stay later dwindle considerably ! !

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.
