A Tuscan farmhouse with loggia close to Siena
- Sleeps 4
- 2 bedrooms
- Swimming Pool
This is the upper part of Casa Ropoli, a large farmhouse on the main drive leading up to Montestigliano estate. This spacious apartment is reached by an external staircase leading up from the drive and the views from this house are beautiful, perhaps the best on the estate....
Situated in exceptionally picturesque countryside, Montestigliano has all the characteristics of the classic Tuscan Great Estate: avenues of cypresses, vineyards, olive groves, woodlands and neat, cultivated fields. The estate buildings form a small complex with some farmhouses, the villa and agricultural buildings in a beautiful position on top of a hill, with extensive views of the surrounding countryside. Wide, sandy floored cypress lined avenues traverse the forested hills of the estate, often terminating in belvederes at the most impressive viewpoints. Through the tangled woodlands, across the cultivated plain below, one can see Siena and the Chianti hills in the distance, and there is a rare abundance of wild flowers and animals.
Entrance to the apartment is from the loggia, a spot that quickly becomes guests' favorite place to linger and watch the world go by. Furnished for meals al fresco, it is just a door away from the open-plan main room comprising a living area with a sofa and armchairs in front of an open fireplace and a well-crafted kitchen area with an island and a dining table for four. A long corridor leads up to two bedrooms, a double and a twin, which share a shower room. There is a covered parking area below Damiano, the house across the drive, and with their car safely stowed, guests will find it a short walk to the closest pool, the Family Pool, just at the top of the drive.
