A few steps from Siena, in the heart of Chianti
Chianti b&b design tells the story of a methamorphosis: from the caring recovery of traditional rural houses to the creation of a modern design living space. it aimd at enhancing the emotions that the land of Siena conveys, a relaxing experience in the heart of rural landscapes. Beyond the concept of b&b, it spouses transparencies and sun light in the living area, while each room provides a relaxing ambient thanks to essential design and details dedicated to the history of the place. here the colors and meaning of contemporary art works by the gifted artist Alessandro Grazi spouse the exclusive and innovative design furniture by LAGO.
A few steps in communal court give access to the large living area, surmounted by a steel and glass mezzanine. through the white helicoidal winding staircase one rises to the top floor of the living area, where there is one of the three bedrooms with bathroom. from atop one appreciates the particular choice of rustic materials respecting the true nature of the place, like large spotted travertine tiles and planed oak planks. on the ground floor are the two other ensuite bedrooms. one of the two develops on two floors, with the bathroom on the mezzanine accessed through a corten steel staircase.
The b&b was once a farmhouse part of a larger group of homes in the possesion of a single landlord, whose villa in vitignano showcases a tower that can be dated back to 1000d.c. Located along the Roman road called Cassia Adrianea, the shortes way between Florence and acquaviva (130km), it allowed travellers to avoid routing through Arezzo or Siena in addition to the steep hills of the Valdarnoand chianti areas. The name Vitignano (Vitinianu), is first found in the will of Ranucciodi Paganello Berardenghi dated 1210 d.c. who donates all his belongings in Vitignano to the friars of S.Salavatore a Fontebuona abbey. the war betwren siena and florence imposed its toll on the fortifird walls, just like it happened to the Cerreto castle nearby. however, the earlier were less damaged due to the influence of the powerful Berardenga abbey.
