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!

Nathan Libri & Gaia Biggi - nlibri@gmail.com purchased this apartment in 2009

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!

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

Last but not least we are just an hour away from the charming seaside....

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

We spent one week in Castagnatello in july 2014 (Quercia). The place is amazing. Spacious, clean apartments are fully equipped. Large and clean swimming pool. Beautiful and well maintained grounds. It is a perfect base to visit Montalcino, Montepulciano and other small towns and villages. The owners are very nice and friendly people. Remember to try olive oil produced in Castagnatello, it is a must!

I highly recommend this place.

Very nice and family friendly country house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our holiday (couple with one child, 1 year) very much. The house is very new as you can see on the pictures of the homepage.

There is a lot to see in the area of Seggiano by car.

The owners are very kind and friendly. There is a little shop with olive oil of the trees around the house.

Our Honeymoon September 2009

  • 5 of 5

Jutta and I arrived at Agriturismo Castagnatello on the last leg of our 3 week honeymoon tour of Italy and were completely delighted with our choice. The appartment was gorgeous. Spotlessly clean, beautifully presented and well equipped. The outdoor 1st floor terrace was huge and gave us view on both sides to the villages nearby. The pool was stunning and the sunsets at the end of the pool have to be seen. Nathan and Gaia gave us a very warm welcome and some excellant advice on what to do and where to go. If you're there on September 9th there is the centuries old Horse Race around the town green oval in Castell del Piano. This is a must!! Agriturismo Castagnatello was the perfect location for a calm relaxing end to a long drive from the UK (Brighton), through France and via Florence and Rome. The surrounding countryside is totally Tuscan. My gorgeous bride Jutta and I had the most wonderful time at this "Perfect" accommodation and would recommend it to our fussiest friends in total and complete confidence. Thanks Nathan and Gaia, we will be back!!!!

Tim (Still madly in love)and Jutta (still amazingly gorgeous).

Wonderful holiday retreat

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time in our apartment in Castagnello. It was comfortable and well equipped, and situated in a beautiful part of Tuscany, in a superb location with panoramic views. The complex is very well planned, with quite a large swimming pool and other facilities, like a laundry. The hosts were friendly and helpful and we spent a delightful two weeks there, either hiking in the woods or touring around the nearby towns and countryside. Some nights we cooked in the kitchen, other evenings we ate out. Every morning we had breakfast on the large terrace as the sun came up. Wonderful!

Ruhig und landschaftlich einmalig schön

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns bei Gaia und Nathan Libri besonders wohlgefühlt.

Die Anlage liegt idyllisch und absolut ruhig mit einem wunderschönen Weitblick in die

Landschaft mit Olivenbäumen und Weinbergen und auf das Städtchen Seggiano.

Der große Pool ist umgeben von den umliegenden Bergen. Man kann dort

stundenlang verweilen und entspannen.

Die Familie Libri ist sehr sympathisch und nimmt sich richtig Zeit für ihre Gäste. Danke!

Wir werden gerne wiederkommen.

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.
