OVERVIEW Chiarentana – Bersagliere

Chiarentana was once a medieval fortress and has been ‘de-gentrified' over the centuries, becoming one of the main farm buildings on the property.

The 6 apartments are still named after the peasant families who last lived here. The square building surrounds a large, shady courtyard planted with climbing roses, lavender and a deliciously scented lime tree. The arched entrance admits a cool breeze and leads out into the wide landscaped garden with a pool (15×7 m) and a tennis court. The view from here is spectacular and surveys the entire valley, but your eye will finally settle on the dominating Monte Amiata, Tuscany's highest mountain.

The garden is furnished with tables and chairs for all apartments, each far enough from the other to guarantee each party sufficient privacy.

Hand-made terracotta floorings, the warm yellow of the walls, friendly colourings and comfortable furniture and above all, lots of space, make this apartment exceptional.

On this video, listen to the owner Donata Origo as she talks about the restoration of Chiarentana, which took up to 20 years.
