Casa In Toscana


Il Girasole

Castiglione Berardenga
This typical Siena style house is located only 1.5 km from the village of Casetta, it is just 15 minutes by car from Siena and 6 km from the famous battlefield of Monteaperti where, in September 1260 the famous battle between the The Guelfi and Ghibellini families took place.

Its position offers the possibility to reach lots of famous places of the Chianti area, the Siena province and also Lake Trasimeno. This house is ideal also for people who want to relax. The view over the Siena hills is beautiful, especially for those who really love Tuscany.

The house is part of an old farm which has been completely refurbished and changed into an exclusive residence. An electric gate is the entrance to the farm. Therefore, only residents can get into the property.

"Il Girasole" is totally fenced. In the past, it used to be one of the 4 warehouses of the farm. The owners have elegantly restored the place and changed it into a prestigious small villa which has two floors but, as it is placed on a hill, all the entrances are on the ground floor. The garden is very large. Guests can park two or more cars in it. Another fence separates the garden from the pool (3.40 x 7.00 m).

There is a large gazebo where you can take your meals in the open air and in the shade. When you get in you find yourselves in a living room with a cooking area in a corner equipped with a stove, an oven, a fridge with a freezer, a dishwasher, a table with chairs and Sat TV.

On the same floor there is a corridor leading to the night area where you can find the two double bedrooms and the bathroom with a shower. The larger bedroom has a French window opening into the garden.

From the kitchen, by means of a spiral staircase, you can reach the large living room below, another kitchen with a table with chairs, a bathroom with a shower and a large double-bed. The large living room can also be used as a third bedroom. Moreover, it has a flight of stairs which leads to the main entrance in the garden and a large glass door with two antae opening into the second paved parking place with a gate.

The living room and the larger bedroom have air conditioning. All the windows - as well as the doors of the large bedroom and the living room - have mosquito nets.

There is also a washing machine.
