The villa is only 5 km from Siena, on the top of a hill covered with vineyards stands this really exclusive villa, belonging since 1527 to a noble Tuscan family. Renovated between 1780 and 1790, it forms together with the surrounding garden, a very unusual complex, both from the historical and the landscaping point of view. Adorned with century old-cypresses and potted lemon plants and carefully-clipped box hedging, the garden boats a unique Green Garden theatre – where Alfieri, a friend family, staged some of his tragedies – equipped with two masonry proscenium arches in a late Baroque style embellished with statues and a vegetable garden decorated according to the canons of topiary art with a vegetable garden and a terraced fish tank from which one can admire a wonderful view of the country opening out towards Siena. The beautiful driveway, lined for a stretch with cypresses and another with holly, enters the garden through one of the gateways opening into the boundary wall adorned with terracotta statues. The villa, which dates back to the 13th century, houses a hall frescoed in 1700 by a talented Tyrolean painter. Five other beautiful rooms still boast the original furniture in Venetian country-style; the decorations are from the French cards or the Toile de Jouy fabrics covering the walls.
No accommodation inside the villa. We suggest hotels, B&B’s and farmhouse nearby or in Siena to accommodate up to 150 guests.
Really recommended is an outdoor reception, but to consider gazebos in case of rain. High quality catering service with Tuscan cuisine. Welcome cocktails served in the panoramic Italian Garden where you can enjoy an enviable view of Siena. Maximum number of guests suggested is 120.
