Overview

Plenty of room in a wide natural landscape

It is here, that in summer of 1857, the Arch-Duke of Tuscany invited Pope Pius IX to enjoy the beauty of Tuscany and to savour it's fine wines and oil. It's a heavenly place to stay, perched on a hill surveying sloping vineyards and olive groves. This ancient estate crowns the top of a hill in the Chianti Classico region halfway between Florence and Siena, and still today it is a large wine-growing estate. It stretches across 60 acres of farmland which lies 300-400 meters above sea level. Hot summer days are sweetened by a pleasant freshness up here and the local home-made wine is delicious. The fattoria (farm) products can be purchased in the hamlet: Chianti Classico, table wines, vintages, white wines, Vinsanto, Grappa and olive oil.

The nearest shops are 3 km away in San Donato, approx. a 10 minute's drive from the apartments. This pretty Medieval village offers grocery stores, a cappuccino bar, a bank, post office, gas station and two restaurants. There are many other small trattoria and specialty restaurants in the area - enough to try a different one every evening! We will provide you with tips for this region. The Chianti town of Castellina is only 13 km away and the famous Medieval town of San Gimignano a mere 25 km. Florence and Siena are both just 35 km from the estate.

A 2 km private gravel road leads to the houses. All houses on this extensive estate are built of stone and are bordered by patios, gravel courtyards and flower beds; vineyards, olive groves and woods merge with the open Mediterranean countryside. The Filigrano Nuovo property has two different buildings available: a very large country house with five very spacious holiday apartments and a small detached cottage, the former hay barn (La Casetta).

During the renovation great care was taken to provide space, comfort and quality: the apartments for 4 people have two bedrooms and two pleasantly tiled bathrooms each, making those units just right for two couples travelling together; the largest unit has even three bedrooms and bathrooms. Redecorated using top quality traditional materials the furnishings are chic: the ceilings are supported by solid wooden beams, while pale pink hand-fired terracotta tiles decorate the floor, the walls are painted in warm Mediterranean colors and elegant materials have been chosen for the furniture, curtains and bedclothes. The modern kitchen cabinets are of dark wood, topped with pale marble work surfaces and are all equipped with dishwasher, oven and hob, fridge and freezer. The dining areas of each unit are large enough to seat 6 people. Each apartment has its own terrace in front of the apartment, with attractive cast iron furniture. The views from the terraces are wonderful, stretching over vineyards to forested hills along the horizon.

Extensive outdoor areas provide enough variety: mountain bikes can be hired, there are hiking trails on the estate and you may stroll through the olive groves and vineyards surrounding the farm, there is a children's play area, a hard tennis court dating back to the early nineties, a barbecue and, of course, a large swimming pool. The pool is a proud 16x8 metres of which a small area (4x2) is designed as a baby pool. The pool is about 300 m from the apartments. Located on a large, sunny plateau it boasts magnificent views in all directions: from here you enjoy a magnificent view of beautiful valleys to the Castellina in Chianti opposite and San Donato in Poggio. A stone patio with sun loungers borders the pool and a few steps away you will find a large lawn with further seating arrangements. 

At a distance of around 500 m we find the main hamlet (Filigrano / also featured in our portfolio), in which the owner lives with his family and where further holiday apartments are dotted among large lawns shared by the guests. The lovely pool and the tennis court are shared between Filigrano and Filigrano Nuovo and lie between the main building and our stone house.

Perfect vacation
Left on Jul 12, 2013 for a stay in Jun 2013
Perfect location for those who seek a very calm location to relax at. Stunning panorama at the "La Casetta" and at the pool. and absolute privacy. Very good hospitality (helpful if help required). Very good restaurants close by. Close drive to sightseeing and high quality vinyards.

Wir waren letztes Jahr in Filigrano und sehr zufrieden... leider etwas abgelegen... versteckt eben. Können Sie uns etwas vergleichbares für dieses Jahr anbieten? 

N. Lutgen, Mai 2009

Sehr geehrte Frau Röhrig,

ich wollte es nicht versäumen, Ihnen nach unserer Rückkehr eine Rückmeldung zukommen zulassen. Wir haben uns auf dem Filigrano Anwesen rundum wohl gefühlt. Es ist ein herrliches Fleckchen Erde in absoluter Ruhe und Abgeschiedenheit - man könnte sich hierher zurückziehen, um seine Memoiren zu schreiben (wenn man Anlass dafür hätte ...). Wir waren schon mehrfach in der Toskana, meist im Chianti oder in der Nähe von San Gimignano, aber Filigrano gehört zu den schönsten Quartieren, die wir kennen gelernt haben. Es ist durchaus möglich, dass wir 2007 wiederkommen, um einiges nachzuholen, was (bedingt durch Anna Marias Erkrankung) diesmal nicht geklappt hat. Wir werden uns dann rechtzeitig bei Ihnen melden.

M. Beck, September 2006

Dear Bettina,

Just thought I would e-mail you to say how much we enjoyed our stay at the Filigrano Nuovo in the Viola Apartment. The apartment was beautifully appointed, bathrooms modern and lovely location. Please pass on to the owners Signor and Signora Casetti how much we enjoyed our stay.

Sehr geehrte Frau Röhrig,
Filigrano ist ein Top-Tip und die Besitzer sehr freundlich - Führung durch die Cantina mit Verkostung.
