Cipresso

from€5,999/week· Villa

Villa Cipresso is a very beautiful 13th century villa located in the Chianti area, approximately 7 miles from Siena. This villa is composed of two separate structures: the main house (3,500 sqft) and the annex (1,500 sqft). The main house is characterized by a watch-tower to which two lateral structures were added over time. This particular layout, with the annex separate from the main villa, make Il Cipresso the ideal property for large groups who will enjoy gathering together yet having their own privacy when needed. The 27-hectare estate where the villa resides produces its own wine which can be served at the villa upon request.

Location

What to do in Siena area

The medieval town of Siena is built across several hills and valleys; that's why you will find yourself walking up and down through its historical center. The lack of car traffic makes Siena a wonderful place to stroll, especially with kids! Despite sometimes being packed with tourists, the city always has a quiet and easygoing feel. A must-see is the shell-shaped square called Il Campo. This is the focal point of the city and the perfect setting to snap your Instagram photos while enjoying an over-sized gelato. This is also the venue of the internationally renowned horse race, The Palio, which takes place on July 2nd and again on August 16th each year.
Visit San Gimignano, famous for its skyline, and Volterra, renown for alabaster artifacts. The small fortress cities within easy driving distance of one another, each offer their own special appeal. The medieval walled city of Monteriggioni – for example – was built in the 13th century and it is known to be one of the most well preserved ancient fortifications in Italy, which is why it is a preferred destination for plenty of tourists, scholars, architects and archeologists from all over Europe.
