Beauty, art and comfort under one roof in Tuscany!

"Beauty, art and comfort under one roof in Tuscany!” - Reviewed by Deborah

There is something magical about Villa degli Artisti, a Chianti manor house built for the Sernigi family who were prominent Tuscan merchants and patrons of the arts during the 15th-Century. Not only does the sheer age of the property inspire a tingle of awe, but its setting amidst vineyards and hundreds of olive trees is like something out of a film.

Continuing to support the arts, its current owners are equally inspiring. You will see paintings, sculptures and art installations throughout the property — some of which can be purchased or commissioned.

Take a short walk through the grounds peppered with olive trees, past the large pool and hot tub, and you will happen upon the villa’s intimate open-air theatre surrounded by a small forest. During the warmer months, villa guests can enjoy regular opera and classical music concerts here followed by dinner. It also makes a great spot for yoga, tai-chi or meditation.

When it comes to relaxation and sharing quality time with your favourite people, you will find this Chianti villa to be an absolute treat. The house is very spacious and bright, renovated with all the modern comforts and decorated in a minimalist style. Simplicity and elegance rule here.

Inside or out, there are multiple areas for you to enjoy your meals together or a sunset aperitivo as a whole group – with more private areas available if you want total peace and quiet.

And finally, if your reason for choosing Tuscany to host your getaway is because you love wine, then you will be pleased to read that the villa has a wine cellar. You can purchase all the bottles you desire without going anywhere or have a local sommelier come and lead you through the best wines in the region.

Living Areas

The distinguishing features of this villa’s living areas are the big windows on the upper floor and an understated, minimalist style. Two lounges with soft, comfy sofas encourage you to read a book or converse with your companions while a long dining table in the spacious reception hall on the ground floor is a great place for a formal dinner.

A large, fully-equipped kitchen is set up for cooking classes, should you wish to partake, and guests can hire a chef or cook meals at their leisure.

However, despite such inviting interiors, most of your time is sure to be spent outside. A large deck with deep-cushion sofas overlooks the lawn and olive grove while an outside dining area equipped for large groups is set up on the front terrace.

The grounds seem to roll on forever, and helicopters and hot-air balloons have been known to land on the fields at the bottom of the garden.
