View a film of Chiusarella here CHIUSARELLA
Set jewel like into the slopes of a small hill within the vast Estate of Arceno, a one thousand hectare nature reserve, is Chiusarella, once the home of those who worked the land for the landlord whose seat was the nearby Villa Arceno built in 1671.
Chiusarella has been renovated to high standards and, with modern conveniences, is now the preserve of those who wish to enjoy the relaxing calm of the Chianti countryside in luxury and comfort, ideal for family groups, or friends' get-togethers.
Overlooking the walled medieval village of San Gusmè, Chiusarella boasts a large patio area perfect for the 'aperitivo al fresco' before dinner at a long wooden table under the extensive porch. Lunch can be taken either here, shaded from the heat of the midday sun, or at the poolside patio.
Four double bedrooms three with en-suite bathrooms and one with its own allocated bathroom allow for privacy and each has outstanding views over the hills dotted with vineyards and olive groves.
The house is built in traditional 'Tuscan' style in stone with brick surrounds in doorways and openings. Chestnut beams, terracotta ceilings and floors complete the scene. Elegantly and tastefully decorated and furnished, the house is light and airy. For chilly nights there are a television room, living room and kitchen all with open fireplaces to cosy up to.
Around the house are many seating areas from which to enjoy views in all directions from looking over the medieval village of San Gusmè beyond the unending views over the Chianti towards Siena and to the South 'Le Crete', the famous Tuscan Hills beloved of photographers and artists (a UNESCO world heritage site). The West facing rear terrace has the sun until the evening, and is the perfect spot for dinner with a sunset view.
The extensive garden features many original artworks, along with the plantings of rosemary, sage and thyme.
High above the house is an 'infinity' swimming pool, along with an 'annesso' (annex) with bathroom changing room, kitchen, huge patio and even more stunning vistas. With plenty of seating this private paradise allows for days of complete relaxation around the pool. For talented chefs there is scope to practice their culinary arts over hot coals, on one of the two large wood fired barbecues. The Villa boasts its own herb garden, for chefs who like to pick garden fresh herbs for their culinary creations.
Surrounded by the forest, one hears almost nothing but the sounds of wildlife and the occasional farm dog or cockerel. Binoculars and cameras are a must for spotting birds, deer, porcupines and more!
