About Nathan Libri & Gaia Biggi - nlibri@gmail.com

Hello there,

We are Nathan Libri and Gaia Biggi, the owners of Castagnatello Estate.

We live between Italy and the UK, were we both worked as scientist for about 10 years.

When our first son Alex was born we decided to settle in Tuscany... no regrets so far!

Why Nathan Libri & Gaia Biggi - nlibri@gmail.com chose Seggiano

Castagnatello was carefully restored by Hilary and Giorgio, Gaia's parents.

The Estate is now Gaia's and we have been managing it since its opening in 2009.

Castagnatello is an elegant example of a Tuscan Estate at its best, the area is really beautiful, far from the tourist crowd and deserved to be discovered.

What makes this apartment unique

Castagnatello is a beautiful stone made estate. Incredible is are also the countryside views: really stunning!

The location is also great: we are between the Val d'Orcia (a UNESCO World Heritage Site) and the Amiata mountain.

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!

Tuscan Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and our two friends from the UK stayed at Castagnatello in September and the only regret we had was that we couldn't stay longer. The Ulivo apartment was large, clean and fully equipped. The whole property is well maintained and set in a quiet and peaceful location with wonderful views of the surrounding countryside, including Seggiano the nearest village. The pool area is fantastic and a great spot to watch the magical sunsets. Nathan and Gaia are great hosts and always willing to help and offer recommendations to make your stay a pleasant one. Explore the nearby historic towns and villages with Castel de Piano well worth a visit, also Siena and Montalcino are within easy reach making Castagnatello an excellent base. Highly recommended.

Picturesque location!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, peaceful location with fabulous views of surrounding countryside. The pool was large & clean. Our 12 year old son enjoyed it immensely. Communication with Nathan was easy and he was so helpful. We drove to some fabulous towns and enjoyed great food and wine. The only drawback was no A/C so evenings were warm but a fan was provided upon request. Thanks Nathan!

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your stay at Castagnatello - I am also happy I was able to help! luckily we are at 500m above sea level and have a cooler (5-8 Celsiou degrees less) and breezier climate than nearby areas like Florence, Siena, the Orcia Valley and the seaside.....

Loved our stay!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our stay at Castagnatello!

We were a group of 4 adults who stayed in the 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was fully outfitted and had everything we needed to cook our own meals. We loved the pool area and only wish we had booked a longer stay to relax and enjoy the amazing view. It is truly stunning.

Nathan and Gaia are amazing hosts who speak perfect English. Communication was excellent! Our emails with questions were answered promptly. The area is so peaceful and quiet. Getting there was easy with the Google Map directions provided.

I highly recommend staying at this property!

2012, 2013 & 2014 definitely ! Castagnatello is a charming agriturismo and were received with great attention and sympathy by the owners. Benefits up to the promises . Practical side , the house is located outside the village of Seggiano , though not too far to get there on foot or by bike , the apartments are spacious , quaint and have terraces , the pool is also very nice as well the approaches ! All the comforts ! Have made great walks and cycling in the countryside of Tuscany with all the charms that we know : it is a mesmerizing region wonderfully harmonious landscape , planted with cypresses , olive trees and vineyards hills, villages and the beautiful cities that are real treasures !

We Tuscany and Castagnatello are synonymous with joy, lifestyle , beauty and tranquility without forgetting its gastronomy and wines. For years we explore , and we never get tired in !

In short , we are delighted , but perhaps there he is in our interest not to spread us compliments for the holiday may be taken over and our chances to stay later dwindle considerably ! !

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 town has something beautiful to discover:

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

Tuscany and the Val d'Orcia are celebrated 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 hiking trails, a go ape rope-park, bicycle trails and BBQ areas.
