BORGO PARADISO 4 sleeps, luxury stone farmhouse with private pool, park, Spa and gym equipment, in the Tuscan landscape near Siena



Updated: 10-Oct-2016
Sleeps: 2. Bedrooms: 2. Bathrooms: 2

PRIVATE STRUCTURE. Borgo Paradiso is a 1920’s stone farmhouse; originally a structure used as a farm shed, it has been subsequently enlarged and tastefully renovated by the current owner. A home with a rustic touch, with the typical exposed-beam ceilings and antique terracotta floors, but cosy and comfortable, complemented by an elegant outbuilding used as a fitness area with a large Jacuzzi for 4 people, sauna and solarium. One of the best parts of this property is the park surrounding the house, a spectacular botanical garden, overflowing with colours and embellished with hundreds of species of plants and flowers, that winds along a real nature trail inside the property and along the paths in the woods around it. Borgo Paradiso is situated on a beautiful hill with a view over the Colline Metallifere (metal-bearing hills). Located in the small village of Ciciano, very close to Chiusdino, with its famous Cistercian Abbey of San Galgano, it is strategically placed for visiting the famous borghi of the province of Siena, such as Montalcino and San Gimignano, or the Chianti territory and admiring their unique artistic and architectural charm. '...It is a vast countryside enlivened by all the beauty that the sublime genius of nature was able to create. There are mountains in part bare and in part lushly green, and large valleys full of gushing springs and deep trenches. Forests of tall turkey oaks and tall old oaks; shady and silent chestnut woods; vast natural grasslands. Nearby, isolated white houses in the countryside, little hamlets and villages; far off, obscured in the mounting mists, rise the towers of Siena and San Gimignano, and Volterra appears mixed in with the green, in a lucid serenity.” (Dina Ferri 1908-1930, poet and writer born in Chiusdino).


The house has a single floor. The entrance opens directly into the open-plan living area with lounge, dining room and fitted kitchen (with wood stove and fireplace). Then on to a double bedroom with ensuite bathroom with shower and through a small hallway with laundry corner to the second double bedroom (with divisible bed) with ensuite bathroom with tub and shower. About 50 m from the house is the 60 sq m wooden outbuilding with the fitness area and gym, completed by a kitchenette and bathroom.


A five-hectare, fenced-in park constitutes the entire property that surrounds the house and forms the whole borgo. A well delineated path passes through the wooded areas, leading to the discovery of many scenes arranged with great care to evoke the old customs and traditions of the past: a collection of old farm equipment, and even a charcoal kiln, which has now been adapted as a reading corner. There are many places to sit and relax in various strategic spots facing the olive grove, like the terrace surrounded by climbing vines, the rich orchard (cherry, peach, fig, walnut and pear trees) or in the shade of majestic oaks. A fabulous 3.500 sq m botanical garden houses a collection of over 200 types of plants and flowers, each with its own identification label, along which meandering paths lead to the various set-up areas. For alfresco dining, guests can choose between a panoramic veranda, connected to the house, with barbecue or a romantic gazebo, covered with climbing roses, in front of the large windows of the fitness area. And, finally, on one side of the veranda, an area paved in teak and delimited by a wall covered with yellow climbing roses contains a cosy lounge corner.

Swimming Pool

(SWIMMING POOL UNDER CONSTRUCTION POOL. READY FROM 2014). The newly-built infinity pool overlooks the wild landscape with the unmistakable typical colours of the Colline Metallifere. Situated on the side of the property bordering the woods, it is just a few metres from the house and can be reached along a cypress-lined path. The rectangular pool, with stone border, sand-coloured PVC lining, Roman steps and internal lighting, measures 9 x 4.5 m with a constant depth of 1.20 m. Surrounding it is a well-kept lawn equipped with sunbeds, umbrella and cold-water shower. Next to the pool, constructed on an old oak, is a wooden tree house from whose windows stretches a breathtaking panorama as far as the eye can see
