Camparone is set among the vines of the private and exclusive estate ‘Tenuta Villa d'Arceno’, a thousand hectares of vineyards, olive groves and forest at the southern end of the Chianti region.
Camparone is an entire private property sleeping eight, quietly secluded in a rural setting but in reach in minutes of local villages and towns. The ‘Casale’ of Camparone comprises of two buildings, a former farmhouse and barn originally built in the fifteenth century. These have been restored using traditional materials, chestnut beams, terracotta tiles, stone and brick but with all the benefits of modern living, air conditioning and WiFi throughout.
The farmhouse is now a luxuriously comfortable Villa, tastefully and imaginatively decorated throughout in a Franco-Italian style, with a beautifully kept private garden and exclusive use of a ten metre swimming pool. As an entire property, privacy is guaranteed providing at the same time a magical setting to bring your ‘Tuscan Dreams Alive’. The gardens of Camparone surround the Villa with lawns, olive groves and a more formal arrangement of herbs and roses around and near the pool with gazebos to provide shade. The beautiful garden has many outdoor ‘living’ areas and the exclusive poolside, from which to enjoy the breathtaking views or relax with a good book and a glass of wine.
Camparone's guests have the services of a complimentary Concierge, provided by a professional with many years of Five Star Hotel experience. Our guests can plan ahead for unique 'Tuscan' moments, for once in a lifetime experiences. From onsite cookery classes with a Tuscan chef; expert guided wine tours of Tuscany's exclusive wineries; horse riding amidst Villa d'Arceno's vineyards and cypress avenues; or a day at the Palio, the famous horse race in Siena, originating in medieval times.
Camparone is reached along the estate’s ‘strade bianche’ (literally white roads which are unpaved) and along majestic cypress avenues typical of Tuscany.
The Villa consists of two wings set at right angles to the main body of the Villa which is aligned almost east/west with a south facing courtyard garden between the wings. From the covered carport the house is accessed through the ‘main’ door of the ‘east’ wing into a hallway, on the right a huge fully equipped kitchen including a traditional open fireplace at counter top level for roasting and grilling those famous Tuscan cuts such as the 'Chianina' steak. In front of the kitchen a table for breakfast and outside the main door there is a stone table which can be used for breakfast, lunch or dinner 'al fresco' with a real candle lit, candelabra above it. Opposite the kitchen the east wing houses the dining room which can accommodate up to twenty diners around two tables. The walls are lined with shelving, housing a vast array of books thus the dining room is also the library.
Along the hallway a small door leads to a water closet with lavatory and wash basin. A little further on the stairs to the floors above and beyond to the right is the doorway to the Master Bedroom suite with en-suite bathroom. The bedroom is furnished with a walk in wardrobe, writing desk; king sized double bed and ‘chaise longue’ it also has 'French' doors leading directly to the garden. The bathroom has bathtub with water jet system, lavatory, bidet, double basins and a ‘massage’ shower. Opposite the Master Bedroom door is the west wing housing the living room with fireplace. From the living room, the west facing 'French' doors lead onto a large patio serving as an outdoor ‘living room’ under the shade of a large porch with plenty of outdoor furniture from which to admire the gardens and view across the Chianti Vineyards.
Between the wings of the house is a ‘loggia’ a covered walkway with brick arches which is copied above on the first floor. The first floor 'loggia' is accessed from the first floor hallway and one of the three bedrooms. Each of the three bedroom suites on the first floor has beds for two people, double or twin, and an en-suite bathroom. On the top floor there is a ‘Colombaia’ literally dovecote with windows in all directions, which is now a ‘T.V. and computer’ room with an adjoining water closet with lavatory and wash basin.
The 'Oriental' suite has double bed, writing desk with chair, blanket chest and chest of drawers, a 'walk through' wardrobe leading to the en-suite bathroom with wash basin, bathtub with shower and lavatory. The windows face northward with views over the garden and swimming pool.
The 'Green' suite has a hallway with plenty of wardrobe space leading to the bathroom with the bedroom to the right. The suite extends from the front to the rear of the villa with it own access to the first floor 'loggia' with views south over the vineyards and countryside of Chianti. Again the views north are over the gardens and pool. The bedroom has twin single beds, a chest of drawers, plenty of chairs and a lounge with sofa, writing desk and coffee table. The en-suite bathroom has wash basin, bath with shower, a separate shower cubicle, bidet and lavatory.
The 'Red' suite has a large bedroom with twin single beds, a chest of drawers, campaign seats, a sofa, writing desk, a 'walk in' wardrobe and views over the gardens, pool and countryside. The en-suite bathroom has double wash basins, bathtub with shower and lavatory.
Camparone also has the capacity to accommodate twelve persons should the need arise. The former barn or 'Fienile' set a short distance from the Villa has been converted into two living and sleeping areas one over the other in a modern decor. The upper level has a large terrace, a living area with kitchenette and bathroom, a twin bedroom with en suite bathroom and shower. Below, the lower level has an independent entrance, a large garden, veranda, living room with kitchen and very large master bedroom with bathroom en-suite. A further four guests may be accommodated and these may be utilised as one unit or two depending on circumstance, please enquire.
