Country Resort in Heart of Chianti

Barberino Val D'Elsa

Firenze, Italy

Gorgeous farm with a 15th-century country house, outbuildings and swimming pool for sale in Barberino Val D’Elsa, 30 km south of Florence. Surrounded by vineyards and with 360-degree views over the Chianti hills as far as Volterra and San Gimignano, halfway between San Donato and Castellina in Chianti, only at 10 minutes’ drive.

Initially built in 1400 as a peasant farm, it was converted into an oil mill in 1780 and recently completely renovated into an elegant country resort with seven residences and one studio flat. Consisting of a main building on several levels with typical stone and brick façades overlooking an internal courtyard, the interior perfectly preserves the traditional Tuscan features with wood-beamed ceilings and terracotta floors.

The ground floor features a large reception area with unique lounges and living rooms, one of which still preserves the 18th-century millstone, a restaurant hall, a professional kitchen, a rustic wine cellar, an office and rooms for technical use including laundry. Four of the guests’ residences are on the ground floor, with one or two bedrooms, while the first floor features a residence with eight bedrooms, all with private bathrooms.

The sixth unit, still on the first floor, benefits of separate access via a characteristic external staircase and features a living area and two bedrooms with private bathroom. In front of the main house, a large panoramic terrace with gazebo overlooks the garden and swimming pool, perfectly set amongst the olive trees and with a paved sundeck.

The old barn, slightly detached from the farmhouse, was restored in 2017 with a modern style and underfloor heating system, houses the seventh residence with a large bright living area and two bedrooms with a bathroom. A small separate annex has been converted into a studio/suite with a front porch.

The farm is dedicated to organic cultivation and includes 53 hectares of land with 600 olive trees as well as arable land, woods and a small vineyard. Thanks to recent renovations, today the entire property is served by solar panels, positioned on the carport, providing electricity, heating and hot water, while two artesian wells and a small pond allow water autonomy both for domestic and irrigation use.

An enchanting place where peace and tranquillity reign, close to shops and amenities, Casale nel Cuore del Chianti is ideal as a private residence to be used all year round, or pursue the agritourism activity perfectly performed by the current owner.
