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
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 spent one week in Castagnatello in july 2014 (Quercia). The place is amazing. Spacious, clean apartments are fully equipped. Large and clean swimming pool. Beautiful and well maintained grounds. It is a perfect base to visit Montalcino, Montepulciano and other small towns and villages. The owners are very nice and friendly people. Remember to try olive oil produced in Castagnatello, it is a must!
I highly recommend this place.
We enjoyed our holiday (couple with one child, 1 year) very much. The house is very new as you can see on the pictures of the homepage.
There is a lot to see in the area of Seggiano by car.
The owners are very kind and friendly. There is a little shop with olive oil of the trees around the house.
Jutta and I arrived at Agriturismo Castagnatello on the last leg of our 3 week honeymoon tour of Italy and were completely delighted with our choice. The appartment was gorgeous. Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and well equipped. The outdoor 1st floor terrace was huge and gave us view on both sides to the villages nearby. The pool was stunning and the sunsets at the end of the pool have to be seen. Nathan and Gaia gave us a very warm welcome and some excellant advice on what to do and where to go. If you're there on September 9th there is the centuries old Horse Race around the town green oval in Castell del Piano. This is a must!! Agriturismo Castagnatello was the perfect location for a calm relaxing end to a long drive from the UK (Brighton), through France and via Florence and Rome. The surrounding countryside is totally Tuscan. My gorgeous bride Jutta and I had the most wonderful time at this "Perfect" accommodation and would recommend it to our fussiest friends in total and complete confidence. Thanks Nathan and Gaia, we will be back!!!!
Tim (Still madly in love)and Jutta (still amazingly gorgeous).
We really enjoyed our time in our apartment in Castagnello. It was comfortable and well equipped, and situated in a beautiful part of Tuscany, in a superb location with panoramic views. The complex is very well planned, with quite a large swimming pool and other facilities, like a laundry. The hosts were friendly and helpful and we spent a delightful two weeks there, either hiking in the woods or touring around the nearby towns and countryside. Some nights we cooked in the kitchen, other evenings we ate out. Every morning we had breakfast on the large terrace as the sun came up. Wonderful!
I can highly reccommend this place. It's one of the most beautiful places in Italy I have ever seen. Quiet, comfortable and a good place to explore the beautiful surroundings. We will come again!
Wir hatten zwei wunderschöne Wochen in diesem gepflegten Castello. Von der Terrasse aus ist der Blick, auf Seggiano und die Berge, jeden Morgen wieder eine nette Frühstücksbeigabe. Die Wohnung ist sehr sauber. Die Küche ist eher minimalistisch ausgestattet. Aber dieses kleine Manko wird durch den grossen Pool mit Wasserfall und der himmlischen Ruhe, sofort wieder vergessen. Unser besonderer Dank geht an Nathan, der für unsere Fragen immer ein offenes Ohr hatte und mit uns eine sehr lehrreiche Wein- und Olivenöl - Verköstigung durchführte. Wir können Castello Castagnatello zu 100% weiter empfehlen.
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.
