La Limonaia is a sensitively modernised, detached, two-floor Tuscan villa with up to six bedrooms in the grounds of the Castello di Celsa. The castle, just 15 km from Siena and 7 km from Sovicille, it is one of the hidden gems of the Tuscan countryside. The villa is clay tiled throughout, reflecting its original purpose as a winter storage area for the castle’s potted lemon trees.
Traditional shuttered windows at the front of the property offer views, across the well-maintained gardens and the secluded, 14metre infinity pool, towards Siena and the surrounding countryside. Only the castle, where the caretaker and gardener live, partly overlooks the property: the owners are not in permanent residence.
Entering the villa by the rear steps leads you into the light and airy hallway of the first floor sleeping area, with, to the left, the first of five bedrooms on this level and, to the right, the stairs to the ground floor living area. The bedrooms feature traditional wooden wardrobes and chests of drawers.
The bedroom on the left is a large double, with iron-framed bedstead, wooden beams and a view over the garden. This room features a traditional wooden chest of drawers, and a vanity table in its own small hallway. Also off this hallway are the en suite facilities, featuring separate toilet and bathroom with tub and shower.
Next off the main hallway, ahead from the stairs, is a double room, again with an iron-framed bedstead, and a traditional wooden chest of drawers. There is an en suite shower room and views over the garden to the Tuscan countryside.
Returning to the hallway, the next room, beside the wooden staircase, is a light and airy study which features a three-seat sofa, armchair, desk and fax machine. It can be arranged as a single bedroom by using the sofa. As a bedroom it is suitable only for a child (1.80 x 0.90 metres). There is a clothes stand in the hallway.
Next door is a twin bedroom. This room has a traditional wooden wardrobe and chest of drawers, and a view over the garden. Across the hallway are the bathroom facilities, with separate toilet and a bathroom with a shower over the tub. There is a further toilet with wash basin next door.
At the end of the hallway is the largest bedroom, a wooden-beamed double-aspect room with its own entry hall, fitted wardrobe, chaise-longue and reading desk. With windows facing both south-east and south-west, this is a bright room with views over the garden and pool and the surrounding countryside. The en-suite facilities off the entry hall include a bath and shower, with marble tops and facings.
Taking the two flights of steps down, you arrive in the ground floor hall, with a small toilet ahead. To the left, the hall leads to the large, wood-beamed living area with more than enough seating for ten occupants. Directly inside the door is a seating area with two sofas and two armchairs looking out through French windows that provide views across the hills to the Siena skyline. Through a wide arch is the second half of the living area with two large settees and two armchairs facing the large flat screen TV. There are a number of tables in this area, as well as an extensive library.
Beside the French windows, a doorway leads to a wood-beamed dining area to seat 12. The large wooden dining table has 12 upholstered wood dining chairs, as well as a matching three-seat settee. Antique side tables complete the furnishings.
Beyond the dining area is a large, fully-equipped, wood-beamed kitchen across the width of the villa, benefitting from a large window at one end and glazed double doors at the other. A marble-topped food preparation station dominates the kitchen area, which also features marble worktops. There is a large fridge-freezer, dishwasher, oven and hob, plus a microwave oven and espresso machine provided. In the room, on either side of the outside doors are wooden tables and benches for light meals or breakfasts and a large dresser.
Through the kitchen and to the left are a laundry room with washing machine and ironing board, as well as a storage room/pantry. To the right is the last of the bedrooms, this one is a single with an iron bedstead, wardrobe and its own flatscreen TV. The en suite facilities include a shower. This is a simply furnished bedroom.
The French windows in the living area and the doors in the kitchen lead to a large, mainly level and attractively planted garden. There are a number of comfortable sitting areas, including a pergola with trained plantings and a large outdoor dining table. The infinity pool is furnished with sun loungers and umbrellas and offers views of the surrounding countryside.
3 double bedrooms
1 twin bedroom
1 single bedroom
The twin room cannot be made into a double nor the doubles into twins.

Note that at the castle there are occasional guided tours of the gardens and chapel.
Guests are welcome to book the tour on arrival.
The caretakers live onsite.

Pool Info

The private pool is located in the well maintained garden on a slightly lower level than the villa. It is surrounded partly by a hedge and partly by a fence with gate. It looks out over the chestnut trees and onto the views of Tuscany and Siena Beyond.
Around the infinity pool is a paved stone and terracotta sun deck which has several sun loungers shaded by umbrellas. It is the perfect place to relax in the peace of the Sienese countryside.
The pool is 14x5 metres and 1.2-2 metres deep. It is open from May through September, weather permitting.
