About the property

Castagnatello Country House

Castagnatello is a delightfully restored Country House immersed in the Tuscan countryside, wonderfully situated between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d’Orcia.

Castagnatello, surrounded by vineyards and olive groves, offers breathtaking views of the nearby hamlet of Seggiano and of the green rolling hills at the foot of the Amiata Mountain.

Castagnatello has six accommodations furnished to high standards, all offering private panoramic terraces or covered patios that open directly to the charming garden surrounding the estate.

In the garden there are a spacious infinity swimming pool offering great views and two BBQs.

We are also magnificently located as a starting point to visit charming places in southern Tuscany like the Val d’Orcia and its lovely villages (Unesco World Heritage site);

to enjoy the renowned wine producing areas of Montalcino and Montepulciano;

to spend a day out hiking on the cooler Amiata Mountain with its BBQ areas and natural parks;

or to spend it at the beach, which is just 1 our away, visiting beautiful seaside villages like Castiglione della Pescaia.

About Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi.

Hi there, I am Nathan Andres Libri.

I was born and grew up in Rome, were I did my School and University.

I then moved to the UK for about 10 years, were I happily worked as a Clinical Scientist. At the end of 2008 my first child was born (little Alexander...born in sunny Southampton), and then we decided to move to southern Tuscany to improve the quality of life of our new forming family.

Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi. purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi. chose Grosseto region

Because the dominant position on its hill and all round view is the best in our area.

Also the restoration has been done with care and quality.

What makes this apartment unique

Seggiano is a beautiful area, a green bubble were there are no pollouting industries, traffic, and unregulated construction.

The countryside between the Amiata and the Val d'Orcia is undoubtedly one of the nicest in Tuscany. In particular the panoramic views we have from Castagnatello are truly stunning!

Traumhaftes Anwesen

  • 5 of 5

perfect place to entspannen.Das house is surrounded by vineyards and Olivienbäumen with a beautiful pool. There you can enjoy the view of the surrounding area of Tuscany. The setting sun makes you forget your everyday life. In the near situated Seggiano can I a small supermarket shopping the necessary food.

The apartment is very chic tastefully decorated in the style of Tuscany.

Excellent Break!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great autumn weekend here with my daughter and family during the olive picking harvest and this place is everything it claims to be and the other reviewers have done it justice also. So peaceful but with very good facilities close by and in a wonderful area for countryside (the Val d'Orcia is a world heritage site!) Also near enough to other great Tuscan places if you want a 'good day out' The scenery is so open and varied and the sense of being at altitude makes it special and probably a bit cooler in the summer as well?

The property itself was beautifully converted for holiday accommodation with everything you could want and with a homely modern Tuscan style. Somewhere to return to!!

OUR LOCATION:

Castagnatello is wonderfully located between the luscious Amiata Mountain and the enchanting Val d'Orcia.

Val d'Orcia is renowned for its traditions, gastronomy and fine wines. Every historical Tuscan town has something beautiful to discover:

you will enjoy exploring villages like the romantic Pienza, renowned for its cheeses, Bagno Vignoni knownd for its Roman Spa, the medieval Montalcino and Montepulciano where hidden cellars in narrow streets offer superb wine tasting, and Rocca d'Orcia with its imposing ancient Castle still dominating the valley.

Tuscany and the Val d'Orcia are renowned for their fine wines. Some of the best wines produced in our area include: Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano and Montecucco (...our friendly neighbour is a known wine producer of the Montecucco Wine!).

Visits and tastings to wine producer estates and cellars can be easily organised.

If you are looking for nature and sport activities, the nearby Monte Amiata is a wildlife rich natural park with several walking, bicycle trails and BBQ areas.
