About

Il Castagno is set in an ancient estate steeped in history whose origins date back to 970. The property is surrounded by beautiful countryside with several acres of oak forests.

It is situated on Monte Cornocchia. It lies beside the provincial road to the beautiful town of Volterra, known as the “Volterrana”, also close to San Gimignano. The Volterrana will offer the most remarkable views of this unspoilt countryside unchanged by modern times.

The property has been completely renovated and nothing has been spared to re-create the atmosphere of elegance it once lived. The once self-sufficient hamlet is made up of a mansion house, the Villa, completely independent with its own private pool and 14 other apartments in the old stables, barns and school. Villa Gambassi is completely independent from the rest of the hamlet, has its own park surrounding it, own private pool and parking space. There you will be able to relax and soak in the atmosphere of this amazing place.

The Villa is very spacious and in fact the remarkable feature of this villa is the luxury of its interiors and the abundance of space offered to its guest. All rooms have terracotta floors and beamed or vaulted ceilings.

Architectural features, such as original brick arches and stone fireplaces, have been retained to recreate that special feeling of this unique property. This together with the elegant antique furniture and fine fabrics bring back the property to its original splendours.
