Casale Sampieri - Siena, Tuscany
Enshrined in the most gentle, romantic and harmonious landscape, Casale Sampieri is a real treasure sitting between Siena and Chianti, enjoying the best both have to offer.
Restored and decorated by its art loving owners, the property offers a peaceful retreat in what seems to be the perfect marriage of tradition and innovation, country life pace, beauty and modern comforts.
The property features a small, yet inviting salt water pool - ideal for cooling off on the hottest summer days.
The area is beautifully breezy and sitting outside is always a real pleasure!
The property was restored with a strong sense of respect for the environment, and was not intended to be based around a huge swimming pool.
This is a place where people come to live the countryside with love and respect, with all commodities and luxury.
Casale is an old farm on the hills of Siena’s Chianti region. It is in a panoramic, secluded area that offers maximum privacy, quiet, and great possibilities for walks in the surrounding woods.
The housing complex is composed of a big white building steeped in the green of the vineyards and olive-groves. The building is divided in three independent apartments: river, moon and zoo. Moon is currently used by the owners.
