Casa Cotto

A luxurious 5 bedroom Tuscan countryside retreat, immersed in the idyllic heart of Chianti.

Tuscany-Chianti Villa 10

Casa Cotto is the epitome of a luxurious Tuscan countryside retreat. It is immersed in the most idyllic heart of Chianti: surrounded by vineyards that produce the world-renowned red wine, olive groves and the borgo of Castagnoli in the distance with its medieval walls, stone houses and cotto roof tiles.

Built in 1788, Casa Cotto has been recently renovated and refurbished to offer the highest comfort yet staying true to its Tuscan nature. The interior showcases the best one might expect from a country retreat: simple yet luxurious furniture, Tuscan antiques and custom-made wrought iron and upholstered pieces. The house has a fully equipped modern kitchen and air-conditioning has been added to all the bedrooms. The layout of the villa is perfect for families travelling together or for multiple couples vacationing together. The Main House has four bedrooms and the adjacent guest suite, "the Porcilaia", contains a fifth bedroom along with a lovely private living room and bath. All five bedrooms offer privacy and there are various sitting areas in which to retreat, while the common areas can comfortably accommodate big get-togethers. There is even a separate small barn with Ping Pong and Foozball tables for more family fun. The spectacular private pool is built into one of the property's ancient terraces, with a stunning 5-meter tall stone wall that borders the pool on one side and a submerged black slate walkway on the other side that extends from one end of the pool to the other and captures the warmth of the sun to serve as a natural heater. The pool area has a generous deck at the shallow end with lounge chairs and an extra-large sun umbrella. The pool is discretely located a short distance from the main house so not to disturb those seeking relaxation and peace. The property offers beautiful gardens with quintessential Chianti views over vineyards and rolling Tuscan hills. There are several lovely outdoor sitting and dining areas, loggias, terraces and lookouts scattered all around the grounds, carefully selected to take advantage of the incredible views.
