Located in the Siena region of Tuscany, La Cerbaia is an authentic and well restored farmhouse that sits adjacent to the historic Villa Cetinale. Villa Cetinale is a 17th century Baroque style villa built in 1680 by Cardinal Flavio Chigi for Pope Alexander VII — Fabio Chigi. The gardens at Villa Cetinale are renowned as being one of the most beautiful in Italy and guests of La Cerbaia are welcome to visit them by pre-arranged appointment.
In 2015, La Cerbaia rents only on a FRIDAY to FRIDAY basis.
La Cerbaia accommodates up to 14 guests. Its setting is peaceful and exclusive with expansive countryside views. The house is situated at the end of a private country lane between the “Holy Woods” and the Villa Cetinale gardens. Entirely independent with a well maintained garden, panoramic furnished terrace and large swimming pool (6m x 12m),La Cerbaia presents an ideal experience for a true Tuscan holiday.
Guests can choose to explore the many well-preserved medieval villages in the area such as Siena (14km), Monteriggioni (15km) and San Gimignano (44km). They can also choose to relax and take pleasure in a day off around the pool, which is furnished with umbrellas and high quality sun loungers. A large furnished terrace (partly shaded) with scenic views provides an additional place for relaxing, reading and taking in an aperitivo while enjoying a sunset over the cypress trees. There is also a covered pergola furnished for outdoor dining and a pizza oven. A cook’s services for one daily meal (food/beverages extra) are included for 6 days (Sunday excluded).
One of the unique features of this welcoming house is a former farm building that has been tastefully restored into a bright open space for group gatherings. Adjacent to the La Cerbaia farmhouse, it has a sizeable well-equipped kitchen, dining room with table that seats 14 and airy living room with fireplace. A large arched paneless window that opens to the outside offers terrific views of the olive groves and makes you feel like you are out among them!
