An extensive structural, architectural and aesthetic renovation and restoration project began early January 2017 has been completed on 1st December 2018, the property is available as a holiday home from end of May 2019.


La Castellina is an old farmer’s home known as “casa colonica” from the late 1800s which has been restored to high specifications using the best craftsmanship the Italian industry has to offer.

An extensive structural, architectural and aesthetic renovation and restoration project has been completed on 1st December 2018.

The villa boasts 360 panoramic gorgeous views being perched on a plateaux at the foothills of the old village of Montegonzi.

Much care and attention to detail is being devoted to bringing back to life a little part of the Tuscan landscape.

The villa was renovated and furnished primarily as a home.
The owners embarked on a journey of 4 years from searching to completion and the renovation alone took 2 years to complete.

It was a painstaking process filled with passion and love for the house, the surrounding land and attention to detail.

Since they travel for work, they want to share their dream home with others and are happy to have guests stay at their home and to feel at home.

However, due to the quality and style of finishing and furnishing of the property, the estate being perched on a plateau surrounded by 8 hectares (20 acres) of arable land, woods and 700 olive groves, the property is more suitable for an adult clientele.

While La Castellina provides up to three cots for babies up to the age of two, the number of children between the ages of 4-10 is limited to 2 for the duration of the stay.

A 12x5m (39x16ft) swimming pool with a BBQ area is available to all guests.
