About the villa

Featured as part of CV Villa's Private Collection


Designed by the architect Carlo Fontana, in the Roman Baroque style, this majestic house was built in 1680 for Pope Alexander VII, and encircled by glorious gardens and the ‘holy wood’, both replete with statuary by Giuseppe Mazuoli. While these remain today, they are joined now by a swimming pool and sunbathing lawn, a games room housed in the limonaia, and a tennis court (shared with nearby villa La Cerbaia).  Within the villa, elegantly vaulted ceilings top beautifully furnished rooms on several levels; the sitting room, with its big stone fireplace, forming a social centrepiece; the kitchen in comfortable country style; and the frescoed dining room looking out to lovely views. Rich fabrics and romantic four-posters feature in several bedrooms, toys await in a cheerful room for children, hand-painted furniture and myriad artworks are liberally sprinkled throughout the house, and chef, maid and manager services add a further level of leisure and luxury.  Just 14km from Siena, Villa Cetinale is 5km from shops and a restaurant in Sovicille and centrally placed for sightseeing in several medieval towns.

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.
