Located between San Gimignano and Siena, Villa Duchessa is an original Seventeenth hundreds castle in the heart of Chianti. Nestled on the summit of a hill, it commands 270 degrees views of the gorgeous surrounding Chianti countryside. The beautiful cast iron gate leads to the heart shaped Italian garden facing the villa, where oak trees, flowers and a charming shallow pond compose a truly welcoming picture. The garden also functions as a perfect shaded place to eat outside. Following the path around the house, one is led to the rear garden, where a large artistic table can comfortably accommodate all guests. Nearby is the brick barbeque, all under the shade of secular trees. Following the stone steps down the path one arrives at the large panoramic swimming pool, surrounded by deck sunbeds, parasols, and an incredibly romantic stone gazebo with intertwining rose bushes. Pool towels are included with the linen provided at the villa. The prize-winning vineyard unrolls nearby the pool.
All the interiors at Villa la Duchessa are strongly characterized by art pieces and antique furniture. The entrance to Villa la Duchessa opens on a marble staircase that seems to hold itself up effortlessly. To the left of the entrance there is the office/computer room with Internet access, while on the right one has access to the comfortable lounge room with the fortepiano and the large stone fireplace. Walking through the Byzantine bifor one enters the frescoed living room with a comfortable Ottoman-style sofa, and continuing through another set of twisted columns arches one gets to the large dining room.

Right outside the kitchen is a service bathroom and the laundry room.
