Wine estate in Castellina - Rural home in the Tuscany

Property of the week: a wine estate in the Tuscany, Italy

Maybe you are wondering to start a new project and the idea of investing in a property to be run as a touristic accommodation or as a rural home draws your attention. What do you think about acquiring a rural home in the Tuscany? Our member La Commerciale has the perfect property: a magnificent wine estate for sale in Castellina in Chianti, in the Italian region of the Tuscany.

Over the past few years, rural tourism has seen a great success and more and more tourists decide to spend their holidays in the countryside or in a place with direct contact with nature in which to enjoy tranquillity. For that reason, buying a property to be focused on rural tourism, especially if it is situated in a sought-after area as the Classic Chianti area, can be the perfect decision.

This exclusive estate that we have the pleasure to offer in this article is a property comprised of a historic villa and several independent buildings, as well as a fantastic winery. The wine estate has a surface of 158,5 ha, of which 19,4 ha are planted vines for the production of DOCG Chianti Classico and Chianti Classico Riserva wines, plus an olive groove of 21,2 ha with 5,500 olive trees. The remaining surface is occupied by fallow fields and arable lands (12,6 ha), orchards (0,3 ha) and forest area and scrubland (105ha).

The Vanvitelli villa

The main residence is called ‘Villa Iolanda’ and is a building of 935m2 dating back to the 18th century. It is an example of the ‘vanvitelli architecture’ with original elements and large windows with views of the garden. The villa was renovated in 2003-2004 and has eight en-suite bedrooms, two dining rooms, a kitchen, a studio and three lounges, one of which has an independent access. An Italian tabern-like with oven, a storage room and a charming chapel complete the villa. The large garden that surrounds the villa includes a swimming pool.

Annex buildings

The other buildings which comprise the estate date back to the 14th century and present a rustic style typical of the Tuscany with stone façades and walls.

On the one hand, we find the ‘Naccolino’. A building of 837m2 with a swimming pool which offers accommodation up to 25 guests. It is divided into five apartments from one to four bedrooms, all of them offering a kitchen, lounge and between one and two bathrooms.

In an isolated and tranquil area is raised the ‘Casale al Bosco’, a country house of 258m2 that can accommodate up to 12 people in four apartments with a total of seven bedrooms and six bathrooms.

The ‘Podere Gaversa’ is the only building that hasn’t been completely renovated. It has 356m2 offering two apartments with two bedrooms, a bathroom, kitchen, lounge area and several rooms on the lower floor.

‘Capraie’ is a house of 353m2 used as a large storage room and garage.

Last but not least the Naccolone hamlet. Built in the 14th century and located in the heart of the estate is found this lovely house ensemble, set around a lovely square with a fountain. In this building there is a large winery of 671m2 and the olive press (162m2), as well as the sales room, the offices and other rooms for the staff.
