As you drive down the majestic cypress-lined road toward Casa Storica, the beauty and history of Tuscany await you. This small private village (“borgo”) rests on over 250 hectares of breathtaking countryside in the heart of the Chianti region. Historical records of the property date back to 1254 when an important peace treaty between Siena and Florence was signed at the estate, which has been owned and lovingly cared for by the same family since the 17th century. The heart of Casa Storica is the elegant Villa, around which rise the other buildings, including the Volta and Tinaione, constructed and furnished in a traditional and distinctively Tuscan style.
3 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms (sleeps 6)
Immerse yourself in the history of Italy at the Villa, the main house of Casa Storica.
