Sangiovese

Lornano, Siena, Chianti

A spacious first floor apartment on a wine estate with wonderful views

  • Sleeps 6
  • 3 Bedrooms
  • Wifi
  • Swimming Pool

On a gentle hill in some of the loveliest countryside of Tuscany, the ancient, aristocratic winery in the little village of Lornano has been in the same family for generations. Sangiovese is one of three houses are arranged round an old threshing floor, like the piazza of a hamlet. They all have plenty of space and height. Much of the furniture is antique, cleverly co-ordinated with good quality Tuscan furniture in excellent taste. The large pool, about 50 metres beyond the houses, has a wide, furnished surround and shares in the beautiful views of the Chianti countryside, framed with flowers, herbs and shrubs attracting a myriad of butterflies.

Accommodation

Sangiovese has its own, private, furnished lawned area beyond and just below the side of the piazza, with a pergola for shade. The accommodation is on the first floor, reached by an external, stone staircase. The large, very tall ceilinged sitting room has a Tuscan fireplace and comfortable sofas. There is a farmhouse kitchen with marble table and with old recipes framed round the corner seating. The double bedroom has a shower room en suite and the two spacious twin bedrooms share a large bathroom. On the ground floor are storerooms.

Nice little touches:

  • Fattoria Lornano produces several award-winning wines - Be sure to try them and visit the cantinas where they mature.
  • Right across the street of this quiet hamlet is a lovely restaurant worth trying
  • Just as soon not deal with driving and traffic? The bus to Siena stops right outside the estate's gate.

Good to know

  • While Sangiovese has a private eating area near the house, it shares the swimming pool with guests in 3 other estate apartments. Happily, the pool is especially large.
  • This apartment is entirely on the first floor, accessed via a front staircase.

Local area

The owners at the villa have their own, private parts of the grounds and parklands, and may occasionally use the pool. Guests have their own parking space and entrance, separate from the owners' villa. While you enjoy your holiday, 100 meters away exquisite wines are slowly moving and maturing in oak casks in the ancient cellars below the villa, lovingly tended just as they have been for centuries past. A visit to the cellars is a wonderful way of cooling off, for the natural temperature there varies between 12 degrees in winter and 18 degrees in the high summer, all brought about by the construction of the ancient cellars themselves. Touring from Lornano is a constant delight along picturesque roads. These three houses are sufficiently private for separate renting, while if taken by a group, there is plenty of space for everyone to meet together.

A few kilometers south is the beautiful medieval city of Siena. Known in present times for its Palio horse race and its wonderful shell-shaped piazza Il Campo, Siena was once a strong rival to Florence and a stopover must on the Via Francigena trail for pilgrims heading to Rome. That it fell to its adversary and lived in obscurity for centuries is now only a benefit, for its winding streets and striking architecture have survived the ages to delight the modern traveller. Whether you spend hours exploring the city centre, follow the Chiantigiana out to the wine hills, or simply linger by the pool, this corner of Tuscany is guaranteed to please.
