Villa La Collina
In the middle of Chianti hills and mountains you can find the perfect castle vacation; Tuscany and the Chianti region are home to Villa La Collina. Here the Italian sun is cut by the shadows of trees, glittering on the water of the pool: relax here on sunbeds with a glass of chilled white wine in your hand and an ice cream for your kids. Enjoy the surrounding vineyards until your eyes can reach and their perfectly straight geometric pattern of lines following the movement of the hills.
Magic nights can be enjoyed at the villa. The starred skies can be admired from the terrace, while your gaze lowers to the town in the valley glittering with small city-lights; it feels like flying far away in space. The beauty of earth and sky are set in this place hard to forget. It gives you the sensation of being part of it all, for a wonderfully private castle vacation. Tuscany and its wonderful settings have never been more charming.
You will go to sleep in a decorated room where fantasy can bring you further and make you appreciate this exceptional place, unique and different from all other places in the same area and the world.
The castle rises on three levels and has all the living rooms and kitchen on the ground floor. The two upper floors are dedicated to the sleeping area. There are 7 bedrooms for 12 guests plus 2 extra beds. One room is a suite with a double bedroom, two sitting rooms and a private bathroom.
During your castle vacation, Tuscany can be explored departing from just outside the gate of the property. Here is a country road, marked on a special map by the province of Siena, on which you can walk or bike to reach untouched places where time has stopped and still makes you appreciate old barns, hills and villages far away. It is a continuous landscape of mountains and of course the famous Tuscan cypresses, painted since centuries ago by artists coming in this very special place.
However, while spending your castle vacation, Tuscany is very much enjoyed just staying at Villa La Collina. The property has a park of about 4.000 square meters (8 acres), and outside the kitchen there is a furnished garden with barbecue and fountain from where sunsets can be enjoyed in all their beauty.
The morning sun rises on the terrace, where you can have your breakfast with a view of Poggibonsi in the distance, which is the nearest town. On the top of the mountains Castellina in Chianti can be spotted with all its charm.
The swimming pool is located in a very panoramic, open area. It measures 15 x 7 meters, and is equipped with a hot/cold outdoor shower and a fridge/freezer in a little adjacent stone house.
While at the villa you’ll get in touch with the important history of these places; the towns all around provide a great resource. San Gimignano is just 15 minutes away. In addition, wine and food tasting at the new generation of producers respecting old Tuscan traditions is an excellent occasion to discover excellent extra virgin olive oil and wonderful wines.
The villa also includes free Wi-Fi access
Families and groups of friends at La Collina can have a very special castle vacation. Tuscany offers a lot to discover, and this castle villa is the right place to do it.
