About the villa

Charming, comfortable and utterly Tuscan, La Cassetta delle Statue is set amid an olive grove, on the edge of the Montagnola Senese. Just 14km from Siena and 5km from shops and a restaurant in Sovicille, the cottage is perfectly peaceful and has a private entrance to a Holy Wood, sprinkled with statues by Guiseppe Mazzuoli, and once a place of quiet contemplation for Cardinal Flavio Chigi. Terraced into the hillside, the villa’s accommodation is on the upper level and the layout provides an ideal arrangement for two couples or for a family with older children. There are three double bedrooms and an open-plan room with kitchen, sitting and dining areas; the other has one bedroom and a small living room with kitchenette; each bedroom has its own bath or shower room. With white walls, timber raftered ceilings and country style furniture, the cottage is designed with disarming simplicity and sits in wonderfully colourful gardens with an al fresco dining terrace, and a pretty pool in a stone paved terrace, with cushioned cane loungers and dappled tree shade.

About the area

Chianti and South of Siena

Average weather

The hills south of Florence, known as the Chianti, look like most people’s idea of ‘classic Tuscany’. Fortress towns such as Castellina and Radda look out over mile after mile of rolling, vine-clad fields, spotted with Tuscany villas. The region’s major annual festival, September’s Rassegna del Chianti Classico in Greve, celebrates the grape harvest, and signs inviting anyone on a Chianti holiday to a roadside enoteca (wine tasting canteen or shop) are a common sight. The Gothic city of Siena, south of Chianti, is the biggest hill-town of all, with a stash of Medieval art and architecture unmatched in Italy.

But Tuscany still has surprises to offer, and unknown even to many Italians. Maremma, only a two-hour drive southwest of the city of Florence is an extensive and largely undeveloped territory in stark contrast to the compact, ordered Chianti hillsides around Florence and Siena that have, until now, been the major draw for visiting wine lovers.The Maremma has great restaurants, and a treasure trove of new wineries.
