Enjoy

A perfect medieval castle overlooks the hamlet "borgo" that has been turned into a small vacation village of a few cottages and apartments. The views of the Chianti hills are open and lovely.


Location

Between Siena and Arezzo, a little off the beaten track, the fairy tale castle of Bucine rises from the hills of Tuscany. The hamlet next to the castle has been transformed into a vacation village with luxury apartments and villas.

With many fabled towns and villages to explore, you will be torn between enjoying your village or visiting new ones. Only a fifteen minute drive from the A1 highway that links Rome with Florence, but unless you know how to find this property, it is unlikely you will discover it. Arezzo, famous for its antiques market, charm, and medieval jousting is half an hour`s drive. Siena is a 45 minute drive, Florence an hour, and Rome`s airport about three hours. You can avoid driving into Florence by catching the local train that gets you right into the center of that city in an hour.

The restaurant that serves 4 evenings (M,Th,F,Sat) during mid and high season is a real bonus. Breakfast is available to apartment and cottage residents for an extra charge. There is a small bar and local wine and olive oil are available for purchase. You may reserve cycling tours, mountain bike rentals, guided walks and treks, and private or group cooking lessons.

This lovely property has so much to offer to the vacationer whether a couple or an extended family. The variety of accommodations welcomes mixed groups and family reunions, too. Close to well-known towns like Arezzo and Siena, it also lets you wander solitary among the olive groves and ancient hills.


Exterior

The property has 700 acres of woods, olive groves and vineyards to wander. An unrestored borgo used for farm purposes lies a hundred yards down the road and just beyond is a fishing lake. Fishing poles are available. The large, sunny swimming pool (26x66 feet or 8x20m) provides hours of enjoyment in summer


Interior

Spacious Loggetta living/dining room with working fireplace, satellite TV receives a few English language news channels, separate and well equipped kitchen with oven, gas stove top, and refrigerator freezer. Bedroom with comfortable bed, bathroom with shower, toilet, sink, bidet. Private terrace and covered portico.

Tuscany Excellence

by Mitchell

Bucine...Lupinar, the estate, is FANTASTIC in pretty much every way.  The villas are first class; the grounds are expansive, user friendly, and diverse; the food is unmatched; and the proximity for day trips is excellent.  The staff is professional, informed and friendly...this was the best week of our 8 week tour through Italy. Great for any family or combination of people on holiday.

The villa in Tuscany worked out really well

by Mike P

The villa in Tuscany worked out really well.  With 4 daughters, 2 older and 2 toddlers the larger accommodations were perfect. We really enjoyed exploring the Tuscan region.  Each day was a new adventure as we drove our Ford van here and there seeing the sights.  We originally thought that we would relax and spend more time at the villa but ended up putting over 500 miles on the van that week alone. No problems, but did lose our security deposit when my wife and daughter decided to blow-up the cooktop. Long story, quite funny really. Loved the location and surrounding area.  May have been a little too remote for us. But having the car really helped. Most of the local restaurants were good and had friendly service.  Each little town seemed to have its own specialties and it was fun to explore each to see the differences.  We visited, Aretzo, Siena, San Giminagno, Mont Riggioni, the Chianti region, Montevarchi, and several others.  (town names spelled to best of my memory) Tips:  Recommend using a GPS unit when driving the area.  Usually very accurate but at times put us into some strange situations that all turned out to be fun and exciting.  Tip 2 don't cook on top of the glass cover of the range, that's not what it is there for. Thank you for all your help.  We will not hesitate to recommend you to others.

Rates do not include taxes/fees.
