Welcome to Casa Castagno, ‘un piccolo pezzo di paradiso’ as the Italians here about say, ‘a little piece of paradise’ nestled in the foothills of Monte Il Castello, Tuscany, just a stone’s throw from Caprese Michelangelo, the ancient cliff-top village and birthplace of the famous renaissance artist and sculptor Michelangelo Buonarotti.

Casa Castagno was once a chestnut drying barn, built in the mid 1800s to dry the harvested chestnuts before making flour. The barn has been renovated to a high standard and still retains many of its original features and charm. The barn is tastefully decorated and furnished and is equipped throughout with modern appliances.

Outside in the garden there is a pretty shaded pergola and a private swimming pool from here you look out on breathtaking views of the mountains of Altuccia and Monte il Castello, some 1400 metres above sea level. The barn sits in a clearing surrounded by 12 very private acres of ancient chestnut groves and oak and beech forest. Secluded but not isolated, the nearest village is only 1km away at the end of a bumpy white road.

It is the perfect holiday retreat for those that love walking, cycling, photography and exploring the various hilltop towns and magnificent abbeys and churches that lie within easy reach. We are a gay friendly villa. Alternatively Casa Castagno is an ideal place to escape where you can immerse yourself amongst the stunning scenery and vast array of wildlife. The absence of ambient light is an astronomer’s dream and during the month of July is only rivalled by the natural spectacle created by the fire flies.

The town of Arezzo which is famous for its jewellery production and monthly Antiques Market is one of the wealthiest cities in Tuscany; here you will find the rail link to Florence and Pisa and the rest of Italy.

There are a wide range of fantastic restaurants offering typically Tuscan dishes made with local seasonal produce including Truffles and Porcini, all within 15 minutes drive from Casa Castagno.

Casa Castagno is very well appointed with all the facilities you could want and expect for a wonderful holiday:

Wireless ADSL Internet. English television is available through the Internet providing you have your own device.

Tastefully decorated open plan lounge with terracotta floor, chestnut beamed ceiling, new pellet stove and access to pool and terrace. The lounge has three large comfortable sofas. There is non-satellite TV with a DVD player and a good selection of DVDs.
The newly created kitchen, with Carrara marble worktops, is extremely well equipped with a dishwasher, fridge/freezer, espresso maker, microwave, electric oven, 5 ring gas hob, kettle, toaster, food mixer, iron, ironing board, washing machine and has ample crockery and cooking utensils. From here there is a wooden chestnut staircase leading to a mezzanine floor with office area and door leading to the second bedroom, which is furnished with two single beds, chest of drawers and bedside table.
On the ground floor there is a master bedroom with King Size bed, chest of drawers, wardrobe, bed-side tables and hairdryer.
Both the bedrooms and bathroom windows are fitted with insect nets.
Recently updated luxury bathroom, with large walk-in shower, toilet, sink and bidet.

I am afraid we cannot permit smoking within the Barn.
The Barn is not ideally suited to children because of its open plan aspect.


Outside by the south facing private pool (5 x 10m/16 x 32ft, depth 1.20-2.20m/4-6ft and a ladder for entry/exit) there is a covered pergola with table and chairs and gas BBQ where you can dine accompanied by the gentle and relaxing sound of running water provided by a decorative stone water feature. The entrance to the Barn is via a pretty stone loggia which also offers shade and looks out over the lawn and pine forest below.

The garden is well maintained and is enclosed by a criss cross chestnut fence. There is a herb garden for your use and paths have been cut through the wild meadow and woods for your enjoyment. A wooden gazebo is positioned at the top of the meadow where you can soak up the magical views as your eyes are drawn deep into the Tiber valley and the dusky blue distant hills of Umbria. Here you can watch a magnificent sunrise, the changing colours and the typical Tuscan pink hue which briefly transforms the landscape. A wall of lavender bushes provides a haven for an abundant variety of butterflies. The peace and quiet is only interrupted by birdsong, the call of the cuckoo, and the occasional drilling of our resident woodpecker.
