Poggibonsi holiday accommodation - Located midway between the historic cities of Florence and Siena, in the region known as Barberino Val d'Elsa, this elegant property dates back to the 11th century with a colourful history, clearly in evidence to those who stay here. From its hilltop position, there are good views in all directions across the surrounding vineyards and olive groves.
In its design, this villa is a classic example of Lorenese architecture, and comparable to the Medici villas of the 15th century. The d้cor is traditional Italian, with floral patterns, murals and some bathrooms in mosaic. Artwork and antiques dating back over the centuries adorn the property. Located within the villa, but also with its own independent access, is a small self-contained apartment sleeping an additional four people available at a supplement.
With some of Italy's most famous treasures such as Florence, Siena and Arezzo within easy reach for day trips, and the pretty towns of the Chianti region on your doorstep, Castello Fusi would make an excellent base for a really memorable holiday.
“If you want Tuscany, this is it. You're in the Chianti region here, and your local restaurants and shops are nearby in the pretty town of Barberino di Val d'Elsa. You're halfway between Florence and Siena, close to ancient hilltop towns like San Gimignano, and only an hour from the glorious sandy beaches along the stunning Maremma coastline. Bicycle lovers will love the freedom offered by the cycling routes close by ("Parco Ciclistico del Chianti"): 250 miles of asphalted trails through rural landscapes and lovely little towns. Even beginners can have a go as slopes never exceed 900 metres! The routes run between Castellina in Chianti, Castelnuovo Berardenga, Gaiole in Chianti, Radda in Chianti and Greve in Chianti, all of which are worthy of visits. This comfortable and spacious villa is ideal for a large group, and extra guests can be accommodated in attractive apartments on the same lovely, peaceful estate. The estate staff will respect your privacy but are on hand to help or advise as required. You can really relax here!”
