Castellare de Sernigi, Tavarnelle Val di Pesa - Florence and Chianti

7 bedrooms 8 bathrooms 11 to 13 guests Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

Less is more in this prestigious villa south of Florence, dating from the 1400s, where cool white tones and a carefully selected and positioned mix of contemporary and antique furnishings allow the old house’s original features to sing. The design-conscious will love the way the graceful arches lead from one room to the next, and how the blank canvas is coloured-in using the natural tones in the wooden beams and furnishings, stone fireplaces, polished terracotta tiled floors, striking blossoms and deep green leaves of the many potted plants. Then, there’s that veritable gallery of modern art, too.

Yet the deft artistic hand that created this lovely vision has also prioritised the comfort of guests, with huge squashy sofas and armchairs and cosy beds, a large professional-standard kitchen and two places that will make a grand occasion of a meal, the dining room and the large pergola. Though this is one of three buildings set in these extensive grounds, you are at liberty to gambol in the vast gardens and swim in the large private pool beyond the olive grove, with a separate hot tub to wallow in. Plus, the spacious veranda and external lounge is a perfect place to enjoy a glass of wine or a yoga class. 

The owners offer a complimentary welcome dinner, please state your expected arrival time on booking. You are welcome to help yourselves to the wine and olive oil in the cellar, which is produced on the estate, and pay for what you use. There is an open-air theatre in the woods near the villa where the owners organise plays, concerts and mini operas for guests during summer. The villa is licensed for weddings. There are tennis courts nearby, which are free for guests to use. The owners have a dog that roams free in the gardens. Included, two hours, twice a week mid-cleaning (except Sundays and festivities). Towel change on Tuesdays and Thursdays.

We had the most wonderful family holiday! The villa is perfect for large groups and the host family could not do enough to make out stay amazing. The wine in the villa was delicious, the restaurants near by recommended by Gemma were really great, the two dinners in the villa and the pizza night were brilliant. Pool area is lovely and the grounds are interesting, with beautiful views. All the rooms are great with en-suite bathrooms and air-conditioning. I would highly recommend a stay here! 😃
Local attractions It is a difficult decision between the winery tour or the pizza night. I think the pizza might just shaded it! The pizza oven in the villa was great, we will look at getting one for home!
To Tuscany team comments for this review:
Thank you ever so much for your lovely review! We are very happy you enjoyed your stay at Castellare de Sernigi. We also agree a pizza-oven is a fine addition to any home!
