Vecchia Fornace, Pievasciata - Castelnuovo Berardenga - Siena

3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms 6 people Private Pool 5 - Superb - Superb 5

If you come to Tuscany for the art, as many do, you will love Vecchia Fornace, because here the art comes to you. This is a delightful stone-built villa in the heart of Chianti to which is attached a public art gallery. Plus, artworks not accessible to the everyone are also sprinkled throughout the villa and the delightful grounds. Suitable for a large family or a group of friends, this villa in stylishly decorated. The whole ground floor, paved with polished floors, gives the villa a warm feel and sets off the terracotta tiles that embellish the ceiling. Interior stone arches create a light, airy ambience, capped by the original barrel vaults retained from when the villa was used as a brick furnace.
You'll be equally delighted by the bedrooms, with their exposed stone and generous windows.

Outside, you can dine al fresco on the large covered terrace, an ideal spot for unwinding as the heat of the day cools down. At the end of the garden there is a large private infinity pool - this is another lovely part of the property with stunning views of the Chianti hills from the sunbeds and pergola.  Should you wish to explore further, Vecchia Fornace is conveniently located between Siena and Gaiole in Chianti.

Our Thoughts
This is an extremely rare property offering you not just rooms but art with a view. We love the combination of modern quirky designer furnishings, such as the armchair shaped like a hand, and more traditional Tuscan flourishes including the age-old stone-built cupboards, all of which is set against a tasteful backdrop of hues of blues and creams. Did we mention the two oversized peppers on the lawn or the stone Buddha who serenely watches on as you bathe in the pool?

Three bedrooms. Three bathrooms, one en-suite. One of the double beds converts into twins, please request on booking. The owners live in a villa attached to the on-site art gallery and use the swimming pool but only rarely. The villa, gardens and pool are not totally private due to visitors to the art gallery within the grounds.

Internal Roman steps lead into the infinity pool, which is surrounded by a paved terrace on three sides furnished with sun beds, leading to lawn. A pergola with table and chairs overlooks the vineyards below. Pool size: 16m x 7m, 1.5-3m deep, open April to October, weather permitting.
