Location

Castello del Conte is situated in the Tuscan countryside in an ideal location, as the property is found in Chianti Senese and borders with Arezzo and Siena.

Chianti Senese, famous for its prestigious wines and beautiful landscapes is a found a little less than an hour away. The Castello di Ama of Lecchi in Chianti, Fontodi Winery in Panzano in Chianti, and Querciabella in Greve in Chianti offer some of the best wines in the area.

Cortona is an ideal town for those passionate about history and culture and an authentic location for someone to immerse themselves in Italian life. We remember it as not only the filming location of the Academy Award Winning Film La Vita è Bella, but also because its roots date back to Etruscan and Roman civilizations. Visitors can spend the day in the National Archaeological Park of Cortona, visit the Duomo and other various churches to learn about Cortona’s significant status throughout the Middle Ages. There are also small artisanal shops where one can purchase hand made products and local gastronomical items.

Siena is one of the most beautiful and visited cities in Tuscany because of its rich history, works of art and local traditions and it is here that the Palio di Siena takes place each summer in Piazza del Campo. The popular horse race has been a tradition in Siena since the Middle Ages.

Arezzo is full of historical buildings such as the Duomo and is also known for housing paintings of Piero della Francesca, Francesco Petrarca and Giorgio Vasari. Every month Arezzo hosts a lovely Antique Fair and twice per year the adventurous medieval jousting festival La Giostra del Saracino.
