Castelletto di Montebenichi
A small, authentic castle with medieval origins (12th Century), complete with battlements, mullioned windows and heraldic crests. Situated in a tiny hamlet atop a hill on the extreme south-east of Chianti, in unspoilt countryside, halfway between Siena and Arezzo. Elegant and charming antique furniture and precious works of art from the owners’ collection. Magnificent gardens with a swimming pool overlooking the valley. Good quality for price ratio.
