My name is Rosita and I was born in Monteriggioni, a town enclosed by medieval boundary walls mentioned by Dante in his “La Divina Commedia”. This is the place where I spent my childhood and girlhood until I got married to my husband Luciano. By the way, we had two twins from our marriage. I have always had a passion for the countryside and country life in general. Later on I moved to a city in Tuscany, in the province. At the end of the Nineties, finally my dreams came true: I managed to move with my husband and children to a house in the open countryside, a truly enchanting place. This is where we created our little family-owned accommodation facility, composed of only four apartments. I spend most of my time alone with my husband at our farm “La Cipresseta”, since we have become empty nesters.
My passion for the countryside drove me and my family to acquire the property. Settling down in the Chianti Classico area was like making a dream come true; we were immediately enraptured by this breathtaking land, the landscape, the surrounding nature with the magnificent nature reserve of the Cipresseta (cypress thicket) of Sant'Agnese. The minute we saw the location of the property, with its landscape, its cypress wood, the view over the hills, vineyards and cypress thicket, we were utterly fascinated and enthralled. The house has a particular charm of its own; we redesigned and refurbished the structure to create a warm and welcoming atmosphere, with the aim of offering our guests the possibility to appreciate the Tuscan countryside and enjoy a taste of natural and relaxing country life.
Our villa enjoys an exceptional location right in the heart of the Chianti Classico area, the ideal starting point for exploring the surrounding territory and sites of major interest and attraction of the Tuscan region. To reach San Gimignano, Siena or Florence, you do not need to embark on lengthy drives along rough bendy roads; you can reach any town in a blink, right in time for dinner or a simple evening walk by driving comfortably along well-paved roads. The property is immersed in the green and surrounded by nature, in the midst of a peaceful and quiet environment and protected against disturbing noise both day and night.
Each apartment is fully equipped with a dining and relax area and has its own private garden situated on the same level with direct access. The garden features a private area for your complete relax (or kids’ play area). There is also a common space equipped with three barbecues to enjoy eating outdoors, where you can cook your meals with firewood gathered from nearby woods. Each apartment is elegantly and comfortably furnished and equipped with everything you need to make you feel at home. There are only four apartments and this offers you total tranquility and the opportunity to pamper yourself in the swimming pool available only to a limited number of guests. In brief, the advantages of our facility consist in the following:
- our small-scale tourist facility with a limited number of guests favors a more comfortable use of common spaces, especially the swimming pool
- the strategic position of our property (probably the best in the Chianti area) is an ideal starting point to discover and explore Tuscany and its main towns and villages
- we do our best to provide quality services at a reasonable price
