Renovated citrus conservatory at historic castle
10 guests · 5 bedrooms · 5 bathrooms
This stunning Tuscan villa is situated in a hilly region known as the Montagnola Senese, just west of Siena. A remodeled antique "limonaia," or citrus conservatory, the villa is part of Castello di Celsa, a restored castle that has been owned by the same family for four centuries. This unique estate also includes the gorgeous sixteenth-century Peruzzi Chapel, as well as a large restored barn for special events. Nestled within this extraordinary setting, the Limonaia is superbly appointed for a memorable getaway, including a private swimming pool and tennis court, beautiful living and dining areas, and a gourmet kitchen. Five bedrooms can accommodate families, destination wedding guests, and groups of friends up to ten in size.
The expansive estate invites you to relish the open-air pleasures of the Tuscan countryside. Play games of tennis under the crystalline sky, and refresh yourself in the sparkling pool. Bask in the sunlight on poolside lounge chairs, and savor alfresco meals beneath the flower-clad pergola. Wander the fabulous gardens in the afternoon, and sip local wines in the outdoor lounge at sunset, admiring the sweeping views of the Sienese hills.
The interiors exude a vintage Tuscan elegance, enhanced by high-end contemporary features. Ample windows and an arched doorway infuse the living rooms with natural light and summer breezes, while fresh white walls accentuate the rustic wood ceiling beams and gorgeous paintings. The kitchen is a gourmet's dream, with generous prep space, lovely artisanal details, and chef-grade appliances. An adjoining breakfast nook features dual tables and banquettes flanking a set of french doors to the gardens.
The bedrooms are furnished with an elegant simplicity, with pale-toned walls complementing the rich pigments of the fabrics and artwork. Each room has its own unique character and charm, with deft touches of exquisite artistry. There are three rooms with king beds and ensuite bathrooms, one room with a pair of twin beds, and one room with a single bed. Air conditioning ensures comfort in the warmer months.
Beyond the private paradise of Castello di Celsa, you're just seventeen kilometers from the artistic and culinary treasures of Siena town, and within comfortable driving distance of San Gimignano.
