Description from manager
In the heart of the Chianti region, 15 minutes drive from Florence, stands Castello Buondelmonti set on a hillside overlooking the valley of the river Pesa.
This extraordinary example of Tuscan medieval castle was built, on the foundations of a Roman Settlement, in the 10th Century by the Buondelmonti family, who ruled the surrounding area as the Imperial Visdomini. Later on they converted the Feudal Castle into a Renaissance Villa between the years 1450 and 1500. In this period the castle was the residence of Caterina Picchena wife of a member of the family Buondelmonti. She became famous for her turbulent love affairs of which the castle was the theatre and the witness.
Castello Buondelmonti has been recently restored and transformed into a luxury holiday home where every detail has been carefully preserved and melted with all the modern comforts to offer all the charm of the historical residence without giving up to the contemporary conveniences such as the swimming pool, internet connexion and an elevator.
Here you can feel all the elegance of the past and sleeping in the antique four poster beds, or walking through the centuries old stone paths, you will be immersed in this ancient atmosphere. The sense of history and culture pervades every corner of this noble residence to make every moment of your stay just unforgettable.
This is also the perfect location for your dream wedding in Tuscany.
Accommodation: Castello Buondelmonti can perfectly accommodate comfortably 15 persons but it can sleep up to 20 persons in total in 11 bedrooms and 10 bathrooms. The structure of the castle is made of two perpendicular parts connected to one another by the squared tower.
You enter the villa on the ground floor and access a grand central hall which divides the castle into two main sections: The Conventino and The Torre.
"The Conventino" offers a large living room and 1 master suite bedroom with bathroom ensuite, 3 double bedrooms with bathrooms ensuite and a small living area.
"The Torre" :an entrance hall, the dining room with fireplace, the kitchen, the laundry, a guest bathroom, a large living room and a beautiful loggia facing the pool inside its fortified walls.
First Floor: a spacious living room with a terrace divides the first floor again in the two sections:
"The Conventino": 1 double bedroom with bathroom ensuite, 2 single bedrooms and 2 double bedrooms with 2 bathrooms to share.
"The Torre Section": (served by a lift), 1 master suite with bathroom, and 1 double bedroom with bathroom ensuite sharing a living room.
In a separate area of the castle live the caretakers and they have no access to the pool or garden area which is completely private for your exclusive use.
Garden and Swimming pool: built on the steep cliffs on the left bank of the Pesa river Castello Buondelmonti is surrounded by cypress trees and it offers unobstructed views over the Pesa Valley.
On the side of the river Pesa you find a loggia on two levels which was built on the year 1520 as you can read in the inscriptions there. The loggia has three round arches on the ground floor watching the pool and it is perfectly equipped to eat outside. On the upper floor another terrace loggia has three squared arches.
The garden enjoys impressive views overlooking the valley and it has a perfectly manicured lawn and a delicious swimming pool (12 x 5 meters, maximum deep 3 meters) equipped with sun lounges. Outside the gate of the garden there is the parking place.
