Property Description

Castellare is a recently renovated (in 2016) 7 bedroom Chianti air conditioned villa oasis of Tuscan charm located in the quaint village of Palazzuolo just outside of Tavarnelle in Chianti,  40 minutes south of the city of Florence and 40 minutes from city of Siena.

Adjacent to the one thousand-year-old church of Sant Bartolomeo this mini-castle presides over beautiful gardens, a lovely swimming pool, acres of olive groves, roses, and herb plants. This charming chianti air conditioned villa is well furnished and combines Tuscan antiques with modern furniture to provide the maximum of comfort and beauty for its guests.

The grounds are gorgeous and beautifully maintained. Castellare was built over four hundred years ago by the Sernigi family, famed for their patronage of many great masters of the Renaissance art movement. About fifty years ago the property was purchased by the Corti family and lovingly restored to its original brilliance using a fusion of Tuscan antiques and modern art to create a minimalist architectural statement.

The warmth of your hosts radiates from the moment you arrive with their complimentary Tuscan welcome dinner and their graceful de facto concierge service. The Cortis, speaking fluent English, are always available to share their encyclopedic knowledge of local shopping gems, activities, and restaurants!

Starting in 2024 adjacent to this chianti air conditioned villa a newly renovated guest house with 3 bedrooms & 2 bathrooms will be available for rent together with the main villa. The 2 buildings together will be able to sleep a total of 20 people on the premises. The estate is perfect for family vacations and small weddings and retreats.
