CASRELLO DI PERGOLATO
11 Bedrooms and 9 Bathrooms (Sleeps 19)
Castello di Pergolato is a beautiful example of a Medieval Tuscan castle.This extraordinary estate is set high on a hillside in the Chianti wine region just south of Florence on the road to Siena. It was originally built in the 10th century on the ruins of an ancient Roman settlement by the Buondelmonti family, who owned the castle for nine centuries. During the Renaissance (between 1450 and 1500) the inside of this walled feudal castle was converted into a villa that has been beautifully restored by its current owners. No detail has been overlooked. The castle is filled with fine Italian antiques, gracious, comfortable sofas and chairs, gorgeous canopy beds and all modern conveniences including an elevator.
A huge central reception room divides the castle into two sections, the Conventino and the Torre. This magnificent room also opens on to an arched terrace that overlooks the swimming pool and out over the sweeping valley of the Pesa River. In all there are a total of eleven bedrooms (six with bathrooms en suite): two masters, six doubles and three singles. There are also two powder rooms. Castello di Pergolato offers a unique and wonderful experience as well as an ideal location only 20 minutes from Florence.
