The Siena Hamlet is a charming air conditioned country house with its own restaurant which has been divided into six independent and self catering apartments and an independent villa. The estate can be rented out in its entirety, which provides 17 bedrooms, or by the individual apartment. Located near the picturesque castle town of Montebenichi, just a few kilometers northeast of Siena, the villa was first built by a captain in Giovanni de’Medici’s army in 1529, and subsequently added onto by successive generations. Restored from ruins by its current owners in 2000, this wonderful estate is the ideal place for family reunions, weddings, or a romantic getaway in the picturesque Chianti hills. The residence has a dining hall used as both a breakfast room and a meeting room, plus a little bar.
