Fattoria di Corsignano
|A relaxing, beautiful and charming stay right outside Siena|
Arriving to Tenuta of Corsignano, on the gravel road through the cypress, olive orchard and rows of delicate roses, you are fascinated by the sea of vine up on the sweet hills and the fantastic view of the famous city of Siena. A huge century pine-tree makes the frame to an unforgettable panoramic scenery, and all around the fragrances of rosemary, sage and lavender come up to your nose to make you dream. In this pleasant setting, our four lovely homesteads has been converted to 10 charming apartments recently restored preserving the pure Tuscan style of terracotta floors, wood beamed ceilings and stonewalls.
We have filled them with thousands family memories, chests, kneading-troughes, antique glass cases, and also pieces of antique furniture which little by little we have discovered in the local markets and have been restored by the wise touch of the Tuscan hand crafters.
You will enjoy all the grace and fantasy of colours decorating our rooms walls with pale sage, or pink or saffron paints and intense light blue and ochre yellow paints.
We wish to offer you a familiar atmosphere, taking care of you with many little thoughts..with our books which we put at your disposal to have some relax in the calm afternoons, with fresh flowers, little and cute plants, special breakfast with homemade sweets.delighting you with the history of the farm and the surrounding, and showing you the pleasant routes in the Chianti land which will make your stay to be an unforgettable one.
Each apartment is "a home sweet home" with all modern comforts and all with a wonderful view of Siena or the Valley, separate outside entrance, parking and a terrace, a garden or a porch.
