Overview

Castelnuovo Berardenga Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Villa & annex, 6 bedroom & 8 bathrooms en-suite sleeps 12 + 3

Casale Camparone is a unique farmhouse the can host 12 to 15 people in absolute luxury and comfort.

The villa sits amidst a manicured wine estate of 2500 acres of vineyards, olive groves and woods, about 20 km from Siena.

This property guarantees privacy while at the same time provides the most magical setting for a Tuscan vacation, as the estate that surrounds it, known as the Tenuta di Arceno, preserves a historical, architectural and natural environment that goes back more than four thousand years to the Etruscan times. In order to arrive to Casale Camparone, one has to drive up through a 200 year old Cypress alley one kilometer long, which makes for a grand drive towards a grand villa!

Casale Camparone exists since the XV century and is recognized by the Italian Office for the Protection of the Cultural Patrimony (the Sosprintedenza ai Beni Culturali) as a historical property whose architecture and beauty must be protected; for this reason when the villa was restructured 10 years ago there was extreme care and attention for details paired with the will to maintain tradition. The exterior still remains the same as during the Renaissance period when it was first built while the interior has all the modern comforts that luxury can provide.

Casale Camparone is a fully fenced property with a beautiful garden with many different outside living areas, with pool, vegetable garden and surrounded with breathtaking views. The main villa sleeps 8 + 2 people and the side annex sleeps 4 + 1, totaling 6 double bedrooms with bathroom en-suite plus 3 alternative sleeping beds mainly for children and young adults.

A historical arrival road lined by ancient 2 feet stone walls guide to the entrance on the ground floor. The welcome hallway leads to the right to the professional kitchen and dining area.

The kitchen has all necessary equipment to tailor to a large group: a fridge with ice maker, toaster, 5 burner stove, electric small oven, wood burning pizza oven plus a full range of cookbooks. The dining room has two tables, each table can seat up to eight people and can stretch up to twenty once they are both opened and aligned alongside. By the side of the kitchen is a square travertine table that can seat up to 12 people, weather permitting, for lunch and dinner during the warm weather months. Candles and a chandelier under the wine leafs are used at dinner.

To the left of the entrance one can access the living room that also leads to an outside pergola set with outdoor couches for outdoor living.

On the ground floor by the living room a small hallway leads to the master bedroom with a king size bed, a chaise lounge, a desk and a bathroom en-suite with shower with back massager, Jacuzzi tub and 2 sinks. There is a flat screen TV in the room.

Upstairs on the first floor there are three more bedrooms and a grand loggia with wonderful views of Tuscany. A small hallway divides a bedroom with an Oriental style decoration with a queen size bed and bathroom en-suite with bathtub and shower. Across from it is a two twin-sized beds room with a small sitting area that leads onto the loggia with 2 chaises lounges to enjoy the view and some reading; the en-suite bathroom has a bath tub and a shower stall.

On the other side of the first floor there is a third ample suite with a king size bed and bathroom en-suite with two sinks and bathtub with shower.

The second floor of the house is a unique architectural feature known in Tuscan as “the Colombaia” which literally means “the dove house”. It is a large unique room with windows in every direction equipped with a large flat screen TV and DVD player with a large DVD library. There is also a computer with WIFI. Two young adults could sleep on the sofa-beds in this room.

Casale Camparone used to be a farmhome and as such also had a Fienile (haybarn/annex) very close by. This beautiful Fienile has been restructured to host two additional and fully independent sleeping quarters. The smallest apartment has a very large terrace, a living area with kitchenette, bathroom, and a two twin bed room plus a small children bedroom with full bathroom with shower.

The second apartment, that has also its own entrance, has a large garden, gazebo, large living room with kitchen, and very large master bedroom with bathroom en-suite.

There are mosquito screens on most windows and doors, a washer & dryer, fax/telephone, CD player, a working fireplace in living room. All bedrooms feature air conditioning and WIFI computer hook-up.

The pool is 10 meters long x 4 meters wide. The pergola is covered with wisteria and roses with 4 chaise lounges, and 4 chairs plus a special waterproof mattress available when desired.

There is a covered Living Room porch with a spectacular view of the Tuscan countryside where one sits mostly in the summer and as the Casale is located at the end of a dirt road, you will not be disturbed.

Every day expect for Sundays, two maids will arrive to the property promptly at 8:30 to prepare breakfast, lunch and dinner if so desired, and clean rooms; they stay for 5 hours each thus leaving at 13:30. If you wish, you can ask them to do your laundry or other services for an extra fee.

Why Didi D'Angeljan chose Siena Area

My late husband and I originally bought this house as a vacation haven in Tuscany. Tuscany was attractive to us because of its weather from Spring to Autumn, the cultural aspect to which we could have access to while we were on vacation, and the unique location.

In this estate we met a host of international likeminded friends and we enjoyed many happy times.

I now have chosen to rent the property when I know that friends and family cannot come and be with me.

What makes this farmhouse unique

We found this property unique for its history and for being immersed in beauty allowing us to enjoy the best views of Tuscany in our own privacy with access to all we might need in terms of modern luxuries and practicality. The villa has many enchanting spaces both inside and outside allowing for everybody who is living in it to find their own intimate corner and joyful group spaces.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I would just like to let you know that we had the most wonderful holiday at Villa Camparone, it was enormously enjoyed by all. Everyone loved the pool, and the grandchildren spent many happy hours swimming.



You have a beautiful Villa, and I hope we looked after it well for you.

The 2 ladies and Beppe were all so very helpful and looked after us so well, please pass on my thanks to them.



We very much enjoyed the vegetables from the garden, such good flavours. My daughters in law are such good cooks and we had some wonderful meals using the fresh picked veggies and herbs.



The garden was a real delight and I hope that one day we may meet, if you come to London do let us know and perhaps we could meet then.



In the meantime we all have such happy memories or our time at your delightful and elegant Villa, you must love the time you spend there.



With warm regards,

Amazing location and great accommodations.no surprises

  • 5 of 5

As an oversea traveller I was very pleased that there were no surprises with the rental it was exactly as advertised and very easy to make all arrangements in advance with very prompt responses from our hosts. The villa is beautiful and a wonderful place to relax and swim. Lots of spaces for an extended family of 13 with a great teen media room. Easy access to Siena and beyond. Great local area to explore through the week in San Gusme and local towns. The ladies were very friendly and made three wonderful meals for our family for a reasonable charge. The stay here was a big part of our family's trip of a lifetime thank you very much, I would highly recommend this rental to others.

Owner's Response: Dear Mike, Thank you for taking the time to write about your time at Villa Camparone. It always makes my heart happy to know that the Villa allowed a family to build happy "memoires". The ladies had told me that they would be preparing the meals for your group, they do have a wonderful hand with the Tuscan cuisine. I hope you can come again at another time in your life to enjoy the wonders of Tuscany and in particular Villa Camparone. Very best wishes. didi d'Anglejan

Amazing Tuscan Experience

  • 5 of 5

The property and surrounding area are stunning. Our extended family had an amazing vacation we will never forget. The property is in the middle of beautiful vineyards, olive groves and surrounding historic towns. The property staff were really great and helpful and communication was great. The food we cooked and enjoyed at local restaurants was amazing. Running and cycling are fantastic. Every morning I set off in another direction for a fantastic and unbelievably scenic run run followed by lounging by the pool and snacking on fresh Parma reggiano - doesn't get any better

Owner's Response: Dear Kurt, What a pleasure to know that you had such a wonderful time and that you have created memories to remember. The villa is in fact in gorgeous location, and it is one of the reasons I purchased the property located in such an enclave. It is a pleasure to know that you were able to enjoy the magical landscape while going for your morning run. I hope that you can come again and enjoy a wonderful vacation with your family and friends. Warm regards, Didi D’Anglejan

Property unfortunately full of horse flies, scorpios, wasps, rodents...

  • 1 of 5

We stayed for one week in the villa with a group of friends including a baby and a toddler.

We were looking forward to our stay based on the photos of the villa.

Unfortunately, as soon as we arrived, we could barely get out of our car, as it was surrounded and attacked by hundreds of horse flies and wasps. The property manager told us it was nothing to worry about. We were skeptical, but when our friends arrived a couple of hours later, it was so bad that they did not dare get out of their cars for one hour.

We called back the property manager who told us that they would come 2 days later to set up some traps for the insects. They did but unfortunately, it did not do very much, and we were unable to enjoy the grounds nor the swimming pool, except for a couple of hours on one or two days. As soon as we stepped out or stepped in the pool, dozens of horse flies and wasps would come to the attack. Very unpleasant and even dangerous as we were traveling with children and a couple of allergic adults.

We also discovered 3 scorpios in the house during our stay (in the bathroom of the family with the toddler, and in our bedroom next to our 3-month old baby). The laundry room also stunk as it was full of mice or rats' pee and poop.

There were also a number of large sized rodents who were running around the villa at night, and one of them even made its way into the kitchen one evening.

Whenever we asked what was going on, we were either told that it was common as we were in "the countryside" or very extraordinary and never seen before. The answers were inconsistent, but nobody had warned us about the presence of these insects and animals beforehand, which would have been very helpful given we were traveling with young children.

At the end of our stay, the manager of the proprety let us know that we may be entitled to a discount given that our stay had been completely undermined. Unfortunately, the owner emailed us later to let us know that she would not give us any money back given that a) we had checked out 2 hours late, and b) that all these things were "as unpredictable and unavoidable" as an earthquake. It is hard for us to believe that the house is normally void of all these insects and animals except for the very one week when we stayed there.

Overall a pretty disastrous stay and no understanding whatsoever from the owner.

Owner's Response: Dear Mr. Zylberstein, I am sorry to read about this review. It is always a great sadness for me that you were not able to enjoy the villa as everyone does. I am afraid that there is nothing I can do about a field mouse that came into the house as I understand from the cleaning ladies, that you never closed the screen doors and, as you are in the middle of the countryside, animals can run right in, which seems to have been the case this time. As for the horseflies which indeed are incredibly bothersome, especially when they seem to have favoured your stay, I had wondered if this incident didn’t happen around the time of the earthquake in Italy because as I am sure you know, animals, birds and I guess horseflies are truly upset by this natural manifestation and tend to group. I also note that you asked Bianca, our concierge, to accomodate an early arrival, in the morning, and she came to the villa to wait for you, however, in the end you arrived at the hour you were supposed to arrive which was at 4PM without letting her know. This led to her waiting for you all day. I find that this was very inconsiderate on your part, in cases like this I would expect for you to ring her to let her know and it would be very kind to send her an email of apology. I hope this clarifies everything, and I do want to mention that I find your complaints completely unnecessary as there is no possible way I can know that you leave screen doors open allowing field mice into the house and that there would be an earthquake nearby. We live in troubled times and I hope that you will never be caught in any terrorist attack that can happen anytime and anywhere and is much worse than flies. Perhaps you recall in the bible the plague of locusts? Sincerely, didi d’Anglejan

Charming Villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa is very beautiful both inside and out. It is charming in that the décor is that of a home which is loved and carefully cared for. It includes family pictures, lovely furniture, rugs, etc. We greatly enjoyed the pool since the summer weather was very hot. The cooks/housekeepers are wonderful and prepare meals as you request. It was fun to travel to nearby towns and do some exploring. I would highly recommend having a car so exploring is possible.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect in every aspect, from the easy communication with Didi, the Tuscany guide with detailed explanation of the surroundings from Valerie, the warm welcome from Bianca, the beautifully appointed and impeccable house, the magical Tuscan views, the gorgeous garden, the location to easily explore Tuscany, the pool, and off course the delicious food and help from Lucia and Marcela. We were a family of 14 ranging from 75 to 1 year old and cannot say enough how we enjoyed our vacation in Villa Camparone.

Thank you all for everything!

Beautiful Home in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family had an incredible week. The ground are impeccably kept and the views amazing. The house is very well maintained and the staff incredibly friendly. We had Marcela and Lucia cook for us several times and every meal was delicious. We loved the pool area very much. We agree with another reviewer that the communication with the host was perfect, very easy, friendly and flexible. To top everything off, the surrounding areas are very nice and convenient. We enjoyed Casteluovo Berandenga and Siena and were easily able to get into Florence and Rome via the train (either from Siena or Arezzo). We had 10 people in our party ... 7 adults and 3 children ... and this was the perfect place for us. Thanks for everything!

Owner's Response: Dear Linda, my heart swells when I read a review like the one you wrote. Thank you for taking the time to share with others what was your experience like. Your booking came very early one and we have been in email touch or almost a full year before the vacation time, and our exchanges were a pleasure for me too. Hopefully you will have some other celebration that will lead your family and friends back to Villa Camparone. All the best, Didi
