    Overview

    Luxury villa with stunning design

    La Castellana is the masterpiece of a famous Italian interior designer. Its dramatic hillside setting, overlooking the famous rolling hills of the Val d'Orcia, foreshadows the beauty of its interior. No wonder it has been featured in books and by the most renowned interior design magazines (House&Garden, Elle Décor, Coté Sud).

    This L-shaped building was a ruin when the owner and her husband bought it. Luckily some old drawings, found in the local archives, could be taken as guideline, but for the rest they were given plenty of rope to style the house in their own very personal way, not limited by existing features, but armed with a huge knowledge of local architecture and contemporary design. The result is a balanced blend of old and new.

    Located on top of a hill with a broad view over the Orcia valley (classified UNESCO World Heritage in 2004), Castellana is surrounded by 3 acres of landscaped garden. The terrraces for alfresco dining are paved with stones from the piazza in Arezzo, and offer unbelievable views over the Val d'Orcia. Adjoining is an outdoor oven and barbecue. There is a heated pool as well as a seperate hot tub for 6, again taking advantage of the views. The vegetable garden produces delicious fresh produce (vegetables, herbs and flowers) which guests are free to pick.

    Each bedroom has an en suite bathroom with a/c, equivalent to a five star hotel. Professional full staff can be arranged. The cook Marcella is so highly regarded, that Maxine Clark, food writer and cook-book author, staged the photographs for her book Flavours of Tuscany at Castellana with Marcella hands on preparing Tuscan cuisine.

    Extra services like daily breakfast, cooking services, household help are available at an extra charge.
