VILLA CATIGNANO - An enchanting spot in Tuscan countryside
About Villa Catignano
Nestled in the heart of the winemaking region of Chianti Classico, Villa Catignano is a magnificent 17th century villa located just 8km north east of Siena, set within 600 acres of flourishing vineyards and olive groves. The classic beauty of Catignano combined with its history, art, and idyllic countryside setting create the perfect backdrop for a Tuscan wedding, unforgettable holiday or exclusive rental.
In detail, the Villa and Fattoria di Catignano are two buildings intimately linked which form part of one single residential, country manor. In the past, the Villa was exclusively used by the noble family Sergardi as their home, and the Fattoria was a real farmhouse devoted to farming and agricultural activity, mostly for the production of wine and extra virgin olive oil.
Now, both the Fattoria and the Villa offer some of the finest, charming accommodation in Tuscany, whose difference is made up only by the kind of vacation apartments; those belonging to a cosy, typical Tuscany's country apartment-style are located in the Fattoria, on top of which are four indipendent little houses with their own garden. The seven vacation apartments, placed on the 1st floor of the Villa, are greater in size, and decorated with marvelous paintings and frescos.
Villa Catignano is framed by the Giardino all'Italiana (italian garden), and the so called Bosco all'Inglese. And between the olive groves, the Viale dei Cipressi (Cypress lane) leads to the swimming pool, where a beautiful view of Siena and its surroundings makes a perfect picture.
Come and experience our warm hospitality where you will experience the joy of modern day convenience seamlessly combined with the splendour of the past.
