Description from the manager
Nestled in one of nature's amphitheatres in the Chianti area, Castellaccio is surrounded by gently rising hills of green and the occasional distant villa. Inspired perhaps by the lay of the land and certainly assisted by gifted gardeners, its owners have created a property that stretches languidly over many levels and invites free flowing movement from one to another. With accommodation in the main house and a spacious barn, this is an excellent place for a group of friends or a multi-generational family to find space for joyous gathering or tranquil retreat.
From the entrance to the fenced property, wide banks of rosemary and lavender...Read more

Wonderful home away from home.
What a lovely villa! Six of us stayed at Castellaccio for a week in September, and found the house and grounds truly enchanting. The kitchen was well-used, and allowed us to practice our Italian cooking. Lovely views from the pool.
Warning: on arriving, when you are facing the Borgo at Sicelle, turn left and then take the next left turn, then right at the fork further on. We had a harrowing experience at dusk with a mistaken turn and a road we couldn't get back up without the aid of a fireman we happend across who managed to drive our two vehicles up the damp, pebbly road backwards at about 50 MPH. An amazing encounter we could have lived without.
I recommend having dinner one evening at the bar/restaurant across from the Borgo. The food was superb, and the service personal and warm.
The spaghetti with butter, pecorino cheese and black pepper was ridiculously delicious.
Note for visiting Florence -- set your GPS to take you to the Piazzale Michelangelo on the south side of the river. From there you can catch a bus down into town. Parking here is easy, and the views of the city are spectacular. We always park here when coming to Florence.
My husband and I have stayed at several of Invitiation to Tuscany's villas, and have never been disappointed.
