The vision behind Tramonti is exciting and modern without casting aside the delightful bucolic features of Chianti that have been luring travellers over for centuries. It's a modern-classic Tuscan villa with pool, where interiors provide ultimate comfort and belie the villa's ancient foundations. Originally a Tuscan farmhouse, the villa blends deliciously into Chianti's well-tended terraces of lushly ordered vines, twisting olive groves and tantalising castellated hilltops that roll off into the distance.
From its privileged position, this luxury Tuscan villa is positioned on a commanding flank of high ground to the southwest of Castellina, there are heart-warming views that extend as far as the iconic mountains of the Val d'Orcia and the pretty Val d'Elsa. Five minutes from Castellina (by car), and within easy striking distance of all the best places to visit in Chianti, this Tuscan villa rental demands early booking to ensure the availability of prized weeks of the year.
The gardens and grounds at Tramonti are beautifully designed. There are a host of outdoor features that are designed to lend themselves superlatively to holidaying in this part of the world. There are two spectacular swimming pools, one (18 x 6m), which can be heated and has a changing room with in and outdoor shower, a helpful shallower level for children, and stairs. Beautifully set up around the pool are high quality loungers and parasols. There's also a table to seat 6 perfect for a repass of some sort. A second pool (8 x 8m) can also be nice for the children with a 1m depth shallower end. Both pools are beautifully set within grounds that also include a South-westerly facing terrace and beautifully designed outdoor living area with surround sound, sofas and chairs that can seat up to 14 guests. All overlooks glorious swathes of Chianti. There's also an outdoor dining room (covered), with seating for 14 guests and an outdoor kitchenette with dishwasher.
Interiors throughout Tramonti are beautifully designed making use of a mix of period pieces and styles with custom made sofas and beds throughout. There's A/C in all the bedrooms, upstairs common area and gym.
