Castello il Pino

Beautifully designer remodeledl 5 bedroom castle set in magnificent surroundings

Tuscany-Florence Area Villa 15

Pino is an exquisitely restored, medieval property with its structural origins dating back to the year 1000. It was first noted in historical records in 1127 when it was part of a present to the Bishop of Florence and even gets a mention in Dante's Divine Comedy. The castle is nestled in the fabulous Chianti hills, deep in the heart of the enchanting Tuscan countryside between Florence, Pisa and Siena and close to several famous vineyards producing some of the world's finest wines: the Chianti Classico, Brunello di Montalcino, Nobile di Montepulciano and Tignanello for example. The whole area is steeped in history with unchanged, medieval towns perched on hillsides, including the unforgettable San Gimignano with its high medieval towers.

The castle is close to one of the most seductive golf courses in Tuscany and golfers can play for most of the year, thanks to the warm Tuscan climate. There are two courses (the Lake Course and the Mountain Course) with a total of 27 holes, a driving range, covered areas for golf clinics and a Club House with panoramic terrace and café. In 2011, the 18 hole Mountain Course was awarded 3rd prize in the prestigious Golf Inc Renovation of the Year.

Castello il Pino is only 5 minutes from the nearest village, 30 km from Florence, San Gimignano and the Ugolino Golf Club, 40 km from Siena, just over half an hour from Florence international airport.

Located on a private hilltop this medieval property in Tuscany has timeless views across vineyards and olive groves to the Italian Alps in the distance. However, it has been fully restored to modern luxury. The beautifully landscaped grounds include fruit trees and olive groves and you can enjoy an indulgent swim in the infinity pool and relax in the hot tub. The garden offers plenty of places for children to play with a trampoline, playground and table tennis. Castello Uglione with its beamed ceilings and brick archways is a gallery-like backdrop for living and dining with a fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen and glam, mod-inspired furnishings. There are five bedrooms at this stunning property which are divided between a 4,300-square-foot main house and a 2,100-square-foot building with a tower.

The property today is an interior designer's dream with modern fittings and a marvellously eclectic selection of top quality art, décor and furnishings. The accommodation is comfortably spread out over the main house and the magnificent tower. It sleeps 11 + 4 guests in five double bedrooms, one of which has a bunk bed, which would be ideal for a child. The master bedroom is in the main house and features a luxurious en suite bathroom, a dressing area and a terrace. The other double bedroom in the main house also has an en suite bathroom.

The Tower offers three double bedrooms, one with an en suite bathroom and the other two sharing a spacious bathroom. Of these two bedrooms sharing a bathroom, one is a double and the other is a twin. The twin bedroom contains the extra bunk bed.

If extra beds are required, a double room and a twin room can be made up in the spa area and they would share the spa bathroom.

The downstairs living areas are marvellous with abundant space, comfort, beauty, originality and light. Many of the original features, such as the timber-beamed ceilings, deep set windows and brick archways have been preserved and then brilliantly contrasted with modern fixtures. The fully-equipped kitchen is guaranteed to become a morning meeting place for lengthy brunches as you sit around the breakfast bar and decide which mouthwatering menus you are going to enjoy that evening. You can choose whether to dine indoors in the more formal dining room or outside al fresco as the Italians do in the summer months.

The gardens are surrounded by leafy woodlands and are a delightful place in which to spend time relaxing. The swimming pool is plenty big enough for everyone, there is a handy outdoor shower and the poolside area is fully furnished with sun loungers, umbrellas, tables and chairs.
