Tucked away among the rolling hills of Siena’s Chianti region, Casale di Cellole is a picturesque traditional Tuscan farm that’s been given a gentle contemporary makeover. Off the beaten track (but within 15 minutes of the historic city of Siena), it retains all the charms that the region is famous for, with the luxury of modern amenities.
Surrounded by olive groves, vineyards, woodland and a garden with bountiful herbs, succulents and seasonal flowers, the property is made up of a main house, several converted barns, a lovely pool and a covered barbecue area. It’s a perfectly secluded and peaceful location that offers endless possibilities for gentle meanderings and dining al fresco. Large airy rooms boast high ceilings, a rotating collection of art and cool found treasures.
The site is composed of five residences that can be rented separately or together. This one, Africa, is a barn that’s been converted into a generous loft space for two. A great vacation home for rent in Italy for a couple.
