Among the oak forest of the Villa Arceno Estate sits Villa Casanova, a delightfully ‘bijou’ detached house set over two floors. It was once a hayloft and barn.
Villa Casanova has been restored in traditional Tuscan style with local materials to high standards with the modern comforts of today. The house oozes charm, tranquillity and secluded providing real privacy. Surrounded by a large garden with flower beds and olive trees, it blends into the forest beyond; in the garden with oak trees, natural rock, little glades and terraces, the Guests may sit in the shade or sunshine and admire the breathtaking views over Chianti, the vineyards and olive groves to 'Monte Amiata', the highest peak in the Siena area. The enchantment continues with bountiful wildlife, birds, butterflies and bees that visit the garden. In front of Casanova is a paved terrace with ample room for outdoor furniture, gazebo, dining table and chairs, perfect for 'Aperitivi', an 'Al fresco' barbecue dinner and for breakfast.
The Villa, a typical Tuscan stone structure, with chestnut beams has an open plan layout, fireplace, a comfortable seating area and dining. On one side is a fully equipped kitchen with utensils enough for a keen chef. Next to the kitchen, is a utility room/cloakroom with lavatory. Also available is internet connection, WiFi, T.V. and DVD player and bluetooth music system. The windows with screens on all sides give views over the garden, countryside and let the breeze pass through the house.
Left of the front door a stairwell leads to the lower floor. The bathroom with shower, bidet, lavatory and basin is at the foot of the stairs. At the other end of the hallway there is the Master Bedroom with double bed, wardrobe, chest of drawers and chairs. A second bedroom gives direct access to the garden; a wardrobe, writing desk and chairs along with a day/pullout bed furnish this room.
Set apart from Villa Casanova are two other villas (not rented) which make up the 'Casale' (farmstead). Below the 'Casale' behind a bay hedge screen is the swimming pool with sun loungers and gazebo, table, chairs and views over the Apennines.
Casanova's guests have the exclusive use of the house and garden. The pool is privately shared with the 'Casale' but it is rarely ever ‘busy’.
